SW6 Van Rentals Versus Professional Movers

SW6 Van Rentals Versus Professional Movers

20 August 2014

Moving house is extremely stressful. You probably already know this if you are reading this, but you should not despair just yet, there are ways in which to make the whole things a fair bit easier and even less expensive while you are at it. This may seem like a paradox; how could something become easier and cheaper at the same time? Well it all comes down to getting your decision about SW6 van rentals versus professional movers right. This will sometimes be an easy decision, whilst for some it will be very much a difficult one. These things all depend on various factors, mainly revolving around the size of your move, the time that you have to get things done, and your budget. We’ll have a look at how you should be thinking about your options, but we will not be able to tell you exactly what is right for you, as everyone’s move is different, and the variable involved will mean one thing for one person, and another for others.

Firstly, let’s look at the main decider; size. If your move is huge, then you have no choice really. The work involved in getting a six bedroom country house emptied and packed into a van is almost always too much to organize and manage yourself. You will need trained professionals for this kind of thing, as with the amount of stuff needed to make a large place livable will be too much for a bunch of mates to get shifted in an efficient amount of time. if you are moving a three bed flat however, then the job is a different one. The main thing is, can you rent a van big enough to do the move in one trip? If so, then you have a good chance that gathering a bunch of strong friends or family together to get your items moved will be a great way to make the whole thing that little bit cheaper. If your place is any smaller than a three bed flat, then it is likely that using a SW6 removals company would be completely ridiculous, and van rental is a no brainer.

Your free time is obviously a large part of making the job good by yourself, so you should factor that in as well if you are undecided. You may be able to get the job done in theory, but will you have the time to do so? Getting things like this sorted without any accidents or calamities is a lot more difficult in practice than you may think at first, and takes a great deal of planning to make sure that it goes right, so make sure that you have the time to do so, or you may find that having the experience of a SW6 moving company may make things quicker and easier.

Budget will dictate a lot of your decision, however it can often be misled. You will likely think that the cost of a removals company is vastly higher than renting a van and doing things yourself, but if you consider the risks involved, the gamble can be of rather high stakes. Having your friends or family help with the move can lead to accidents, with damage to items, furniture, property and even people leading to a lot of money in repairs and replacing things. Is this sort of scenario a likelihood, and if so, can you afford it?

The decision is a hard one, and not something that we can do for you, but hopefully these pointer will make everything a bit easier.
