Working with a team of professional packers is one of the best ways of ensuring that your things are packed and transported properly, in a timely manner. Trying to take care of house relocation yourself may seem like a great idea when you’re running low on funds, but it’s actually a very complicated process and there are a lot of risks in a DIY house removal. Hiring a moving company is always advisable, because it helps you save on effort, time and of course, minimises the risks that come with amateur house removals.

If you’re wondering just what these risks are, you’d be rather surprised, and alarmed, to learn that unless you have a lot of experience with home removals, you may actually do a lot of harm to yourself or to your belongings. Packing things into packaging boxes and moving them onto a vehicle may seem like a fairly straightforward process at first, but when you take a moment to think about all the potential hazards, you’ll appreciate just how difficult a task it is.

With all the equipment, packaging supplies, tools and the general mess strewn about, lifting very heavy boxes and oddly shaped items, carrying things to and fro the moving vehicle, carrying items up and down staircases etc., it makes sense to leave house moving to the pros.

While the simple act of putting things into boxes might not be very dangerous in itself, but the supporting tasks are. For instance, many people use packaging materials and tools like box cutters and industrial scissors while packing things and a shaky, inexperienced hand can cause severe injuries and some painful moments when you’re already stressed enough as it is!
