When you’re moving home, it can often be a very expensive experience. As a result, you’ve probably considered doing the moving on your own. However, it’s a much bigger risk to move on your own than it is to rely on professionals. Not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should hire a removalist instead of doing it yourself.

1. Risk of damage

The biggest risk to moving home on your own is the damage you can cause to your furniture and household items. At Grace, we train our staff to use professional packing processes to ensure your household goods are protected at every stage of the move. We use a range of packing techniques and specially designed boxes to keep every one of your items safe. We also take extra measures to ensure your home is protected while we’re moving in and out of the property.

2. Insurance

While we enjoy one of the lowest rates of moving insurance claims in the industry, it also helps to be protected. Your belongings may be exposed to a number of risks which fall outside a removalist’s control. Ask our moving consultants about our competitive transit and storage insurance policies.

3. Time is money

If you’ve already looked into hiring a truck to move yourself, or doing multiple trips in your car, you’ve probably calculated the time and money it’s going to take to complete your move. Once you’ve added in petrol, toll and trolley costs, as well as how many days you’ll have to take off work, hiring a removalist starts becoming more value for money.

Grace provide an inclusive quote up front so you know exactly what you’re getting for your money. Knowing how much you’re going to spend on a move and what jobs Grace will complete for you also makes it easier to budget for the other expenses that come with owning a house.

4. Delivery and assembly

Moving is an exhausting process so it goes without saying that unpacking and assembling your new home can be a time consuming and tiring process. That’s why Grace provide an unpack and assemble service so you can sit back and relax while our trained professionals deliver and set up your new home. We also offer valet services and clean the property for you before you move in so you don’t have to worry about where you packed the broom.

5. More than packing and moving

Removalists can do a lot more than simply move and relocate your belongings. At Grace, we offer a comprehensive range of removal services. These services include:
