You might be planning on moving home yourself to save money, and while it’s certainly a valid option there are some common mistakes people make that wind up costing them time, money and effort.

It’s important to be aware of these pitfalls so that you can avoid them. One of the best ways to ensure a great moving experience, free from pitfalls, is to hire professional removalists.

Professional movers take the strain out of moving and help you avoid these mistakes when moving homes in Werribee.

Taking too long to pack

Many people take a very laid-back approach to packing, which results in a mad scramble to get it all done before moving day.

When you delay packing, it also means you have little to no time to sort through your belongings and cull them. We all tend to accumulate plenty of items over the years, and moving is a great time to declutter. You miss out on that valuable opportunity, and it also ends up costing you more for your move.

Removalists often charge in hour or half-hour blocks, and you don’t want to be wasting money having them move things you would’ve thrown out or donated. It also means moving will take a lot longer, and nobody wants that!

Trying to save money by doing it all yourself

Getting some of your friends and family to help you move and hiring a van or truck sounds like a cheap way to go when you need to move. The truth is that moving is a lot more complicated than that, which is why professional movers often end up saving you money in the long run.

It will take you longer to load and unload your moving truck or van than it would for professional movers, which means you’ll have to pay more for the vehicle hire. You also likely don’t know correct lifting or moving techniques, which leaves yourself open to injury when handling boxes and furniture. You could also easily damage or break your items.

All of these reasons mean your DIY move doesn’t end up so cheap after all.

Fragile and valuable items aren’t packed properly

Whether deliberately not purchasing extra packing material for fragile items in order to save money, or just not knowing the importance of packing these items correctly, this is probably the biggest reason to choose professional removalists instead.

They know the correct techniques for packing your breakable, valuable items so that they survive the journey to your new home. Loading them into the moving truck also takes skill, so that they aren’t crushed or have other items fall on them during transit.
