Why pay someone to do something you can do yourself? Due to our can-do attitude, Australians love to do projects themselves without professional assistance.

There are a few types of home removals you should never undertake without the help of a professional removalist:

The long-distance Move

You cannot do a DIY long-distance move unless you're moving into a fully furnished apartment for the first time.

Your Ute won't be able to move you from Sydney to another major city in the country in small amounts each day as if you were just moving a couple of streets away.

Due to your lack of driving expertise, you'll need to pack all your belongings into a van at once. It takes specialised expertise to drive like that-and that's just the part of it that requires expertise. A large van shouldn't be driven by someone who doesn't work driving large trucks. The way you park, detect blind spots, and maintain a clear distance in a large moving van is different from how you do it in your car or Ute.

It's wishful thinking to pack up everything you own and expect them to make it to your new home intact. A reliable mover and packer who knows how to pack a large van so that the belongings of their customers won't bump into each other during transit. Both you and your friends lack that expertise. Leaving the packing to the professionals is a good idea, this is especially important on interstate removals, you don’t want to accidentally leave something behind.

You don't have the money to throw away on expensive van rentals: Removalists can complete the job quickly, saving you from having to rent a vehicle for several days or a week while you move. This can raise your costs much higher than if you had hired a professional in the first place. If you're looking for more cost-effective solutions, check out our two men and a truck services.

Moving a full van of furnishings requires strength and numbers: It takes strength and numbers to safely move a full van. A professional crew's work can result in back injuries, pulled shoulders, and other overuse injuries if you attempt to do it yourself.

Valuable moves

It is possible for valuables to break when they are moved. An antiques removalist is better equipped to handle fine art, fine musical instruments, and other antiques during the move. Additionally, you will receive compensation if any of your valuables are damaged due to removals insurance.

Relocation of the Office

When moving your business, rather than your home, you'll need a professional. There are a lot of wires and other components that must stay with today's electronic office equipment, as they need to stay with the equipment to avoid getting lost. It could also shut down crucial aspects of your business if you lose a piece of valuable office equipment because of amateur mistakes.

With the help of a professional office removalist, you can also buy insurance to replace these tools, should they be damaged.

Many projects are perfect for DIYers, but most moves aren't. Don't let a few dollars on a move cost you a week's worth of lost work, your precious possessions, or days of lost business.
