What are the benefits of hiring a moving company?

Written by Posted On Saturday, 17 February 2018 14:52

We know in good faith how difficult it is to choose a trustworthy removal company. We also know that there are times of lean times and it is logical to fall into the temptation to take charge of our own move. For this we have two options: rent a van and put in a commitment to family and friends, or hire a company such as Exclusive Movers.

We tend to believe that a moving company is expensive, but if we think carefully, what price do we put on our time?, what happens if my brother-in-law loads the fridge?, what paperwork do I have to do?, do I need some permission?. There are many reasons why hiring a moving company is a great success. Here we give you some of them.

You save time

A competent and specialized company in removals will offer you a fast and quality service. For what you yourself would take two weeks to do, a moving company will do it in a few days. You know, "time is money".

It is more secure

A moving company will always perform (or should perform) a detailed inventory or inventory of all your belongings, so there is nothing that will be lost along the way. In addition, a good moving company always offers you the possibility of working with a personalized insurance that takes care of any accident that may happen during the move. Nowadays, all the moving companies are obliged to have at least general insurance according to the LCTTM (Law of Contract of Transport of merchandise).

Material and adequate tools

A moving company has both the right tools for assembly and disassembly of furniture and packaging material, which is key to preventing damage and incidents. On the other hand, it is not a good idea to try to raise your entire house five floors without an elevator. Choose a mover that has a lift platform, not all have this tool. Your back and that of your friends will thank you.

Staff trained and experienced in moving

Hiring a serious removal company gives us the peace of mind and confidence that will have a team of trained workers with extensive experience in the service so that our equipment will be the best collection.

Management of permits and advice

In some cities are applying public occupation rates for parking trucks, if you are not aware of this regulation, it can cause real inconvenience to make your move and even a fine. The moving company is obliged to know the regulations and laws in force at all times.

Customs paperwork in case of hospitalizations

If it is the case of an international move, it is even more interesting to hire the services of a moving company. This will be in charge of all the management of customs fees or any management that your move requires.

Cleaning service, waste management and donation of equipment

It is very useful for the cleaning service that some moving companies offer to their clients in the home of origin so that it is to arrive and place furniture and objects. In addition, it is also of great help that the same company manages waste or appliances that we do not want to take to the new destination and even donate them to entities that can give them a second use.

Furniture repository

Some removal companies have furniture storage service, a good resource if your home does not have enough space for all the furniture or the delivery of the keys of the new home is not immediate and you need to park your belongings somewhere either for long periods of time or for a few weeks. In addition, they usually have surveillance 24 hours a day and/or anti-theft insurance.
