Moving Out: Hiring a Man And a Van

Author: Izzy Smith.

It’s very likely that at some stage in your life, you’ve experienced a situation in which moving home, undertaking a thorough de-cluttering or transporting un-wanted possessions to the tip or charity-shop has been a nightmare. Clearing out the shed or organizing your own home-move may have seemed completely manageable at the time, but may have resulted in body-aches, irritation and tense moments with loved ones! So whilst doing things independently may have seemed an attractive option at the time, it is possible that you may not wish to repeat the experience.

Therefore, an affordable and less stressful alternative could be employing the services of professionals, which will allow you to achieve your move or clear-out in a manner that is faster, more efficient and safer. Whilst many of us may assume that lifting a heavy object and loading it into a vehicle merely involves equal measures of strength, determination and stamina, it is important to assume certain body-movements and postures in order to avoid body-strain, and a trained professional will be able to do this. This can lead to the avoidance of minor injuries to yourself and damage inflicted to valuable and much-loved possessions. It’s also likely that as you attempt to carry that heavy bed, wardrobe or chest of drawers, etc., you are not covered by insurance, and if accidents happen, as they have an annoying persistence of doing so, you’ll find yourself in a spot of bother. Fortunately, the majority of professionals who work for man and van companies will be insured, so that’s another thing you won’t have to worry about.

Whilst you may have spent hours trying to get an awkward shaped piece of furniture out of the house in the past, a professional mover will be able to do it in a much more methodical, practical and efficient manner-,as a result of the day-to-day experience they will have had.

However, before you decide to take the plunge and hire a professional, it’s wise to consider a few points, in order to ensure you are recruiting the best possible services. Firstly, you should find out their exact rates of pay, be it per hour, per day, per item and so-forth. Different man and van professionals often offer different packages and terms and conditions, and if you do a bit of research – you’re sure to find the package that’s right for you. Secondly, you should make them completely aware of what they will required to move, as underestimating a work-load can lead to extra charges that will not have anticipated. Work-load can also determine the amount of people you need to employ, and as some items cannot be lifted by one person alone, you will need to take this into account, if you do not wish to get involved in the work yourself. /Moving Firm Belsize Park /

If you’re paying by the hour, it’s also advisable to employ a professional who has a comprehensive knowledge of the area, so that goods can be transported from location to location without getting lost, without being driven down routes which are unsuitable for the vehicle used and other similar occurrences. If the professional is not familiar with the area, you should at least ensure that they have functioning GPS and SatNav equipment.

So whilst hiring the services of a man and van may seem like an extravagant luxury- particularly during this period of economic austerity, the benefits you will get from the service are multiple. You could save yourself time, stress, discomfort and have confidence in knowing whatever you want to be moved will be on time and in the condition in which it left your home! N2 Removal Company
