Save Time and Energy: How a Moving Company Simplifies Your Relocation

The Moving Company

When it comes time to move house, there are generally a thousand little tasks that seem to emerge as you start the process of shifting all your treasured items from one place to another. We often hear the statement, “I didn’t realise how much stuff I had”, from friends and family after they have embarked on moving as a DIY project.


Taking time off work, organising packing materials, trying to rope in friends and neighbours to help you shift and ending up with total chaos at the other end can be incredibly daunting – they say moving house comes third on the list of the most stressful experiences you can go through.


But what if it didn’t have to be so hard? Read on to discover how choosing the right moving company can alleviate stress and save you time and money. Here, we explore how you can transition smoothly from one place to another and potentially even enjoy your move!


Timing is Everything

Planning and executing a move from one region to another, from your home to a storage facility – or even to another country – takes time. It stands to reason that a moving company is going to have streamlined processes in place to ensure the whole undertaking can be executed in ways that will save you time. 


Streamlined Planning & Processes

Each step in your move will require planning and precision around timing. From packing up to transferring your items into the moving vehicle, forethought about how each piece of furniture and box is best placed for convenient removal and safe transit, utilising the best time of day to shift and a myriad of other details. 

If you have never driven a truck before, you will spend more time manoeuvring that vehicle, and you may run into trouble on the road because you have no experience.  And when it comes to parallel parking in the right spot to make trundling your belongings in and out? Potential nightmare! 


Taking Care of Practical Logistics

A professional moving company will have a team that has done all of these tasks hundreds of times, so they will understand how long each will take and be able to do them a lot faster than you will. They will also have experience identifying all the logistics that will be at play before and on moving day. 

This could include the weather, parking on your street or at the new location, traffic concerns, a ferry to catch – or your treasured household items may be heading to the port to be loaded onto a ship to meet you overseas. 


Trusting a moving company to take care of all these details means that you will be able to relax and focus on more personal considerations – like settling the kids in at a new school, organising your electricity and broadband to be transferred – or signing up to a GP that you can rely on at your new address.


An Expert Approach to Moving

Any big project is going to encounter potential challenges and delays, but with a professional moving company on board, you will have a team that has encountered these kinds of scenarios multiple times; they will have an expert approach to any difficulties that crop up – and they are not emotionally invested in how the move is going. 

I think we all have a story about a move that turned into a nightmare, and it can certainly be emotionally draining to try and get things back on track when you are exhausted from doing everything yourself. Choosing a reputable moving company gives you many advantages, and a cool hand at the wheel is no small thing for a smooth move. Imagine your first night in your new place, organised and relaxed – it’s possible with the right moving company.


Settle in Faster

The lead-up to a DIY move may start out methodical and organised, with boxes carefully packed and labelled; you may even start stacking boxes in a logical order. However, oftentimes, as the move gets closer, these systems start to disintegrate. You may even find yourself hurling things into boxes willy-nilly at the last minute—this spells chaos for unpacking.


Custom Designed Packing

Hiring a moving company that offers a full range of services, including customised packing and unpacking, will ensure a stress-free exit from your old address. Everything can be beautifully catalogued and packed neatly into the truck in the best order to ensure unloading happens quickly and efficiently at the other end.

This approach enables you to settle in faster at the other end; you can even opt for a comprehensive unpacking service in lots of areas, with furniture and personal items placed in the right rooms, the kettle on the bench and all of your bedding and toiletries accessible so that you can settle in for a great night’s sleep when you arrive at your new destination.


Fragile and Outsized Items

If you have a piano, glass cabinets or any other belongings that will need to be carefully handled, your moving company should be set up to deal with these valuable or fragile items. At The Moving Company, we offer professional packing for items of all shapes and sizes, and we can ensure that your precious and fragile items arrive safely.


Save Time & Money with The Moving Company

While it may seem like a good idea to DIY your move – it’s quite likely that it’s going to end up costing you a lot more time and money than you think. Unfortunately, if you don’t have a lot of experience planning and executing a move, the time and money spent can quickly snowball, and this just adds to the stress of moving.

If you are ready to enjoy moving day and arrive feeling relaxed and refreshed to your new location, we can help.
