[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]If you’re on a budget, you’re likely no stranger to DIY. If you can do something yourself, why would
you pay someone to do it for you? Some things are better left to the professionals, however, and
many people would argue that moving home is one of them. There’s so much to be organised when
it’s time to move, and one of the biggest tasks is packing up all of your belongings. Should you get
your removal company to do this for you, or should you pack your removal boxes yourself?
Let’s look at the pros and cons to help you make your choice:


You get to keep your privacy, with no strangers going through your belongings
Sort your items
You can sort things for donation or throwing away as you pack, instead of before or after your move
Pack in your own time
You get to work around your own schedule and take as much time as needed
Saves money
You save on the cost of having someone else pack for you

Cons :

Takes up too much time
It takes a lot longer to pack when you’re working around your life and commitments, such as kids,
work and school
Improper packing risks damage
If you don’t know how to correctly pack your boxes, it’s almost guaranteed that at least one of your
items will break during the move
Improper disassembling of furniture risks damage
If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you might break furniture or lose pieces when disassembling
them for moving
High likelihood of buying wrong boxes
You need to have knowledge of the different sizes and designs of removal boxes, or you’ll waste
money and risk your belongings being damaged by buying the wrong ones
No insurance coverage
Breakages and damage aren’t covered by insurance when you’re moving yourself, but removal
companies will have the right coverage
Moving house is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful. Make it easier on yourself by having
your precious items packed by professionals, so that you have peace of mind that your belongings
are in good hands.
