With the current property boom happening in Sydney right now, there will be loads of folks preparing to move home. We've done it several times with rental properties, and the packing and loading at each end can be exhausting. Even more so when you're doing it with several fur babies in tow! :) Hopefully these hints & tips will help make things a little easier.
If you’ve ever moved house before, you’ll know how stressful it can be. Loading the entire contents of your home into a truck and rearranging everything in your new house can be a daunting task, and not one you should try to do on your own. Here are five reasons why you need a professional mover.
1. ExperienceMoving house is the kind of thing you can only get better at with practice. If you’ve already lived in a couple of different homes, you should be able to recall how naive you were the first time you attempted to move. Even if you’ve gotten better at it over time, there are some skills only professional movers will possess. For example, do you have any idea of how to stack furniture in a truck so as to prevent damage en route to your new house? Do you even have access to a truck? A professional mover such as Your Local Movers will have the experience to get the job done right, and can ensure your possessions make it safely to their destination.

2. Personalised ServiceNo two moves are the same, and professional movers can adapt their services to suit the needs of individual clients. Whether you want the entire moving process taken care of or you only require assistance with some heavier items, a team of professional movers will be able to help out as much or as little as needed. They can also take into account the conditions of both your current and future home, regarding things such as stair access and parking.

3. Know-howIf you are unsure of how to arrange everything in your new house, a professional mover can inspect the property prior to unpacking to help you decide on a suitable layout. Deciding where to put everything can be one of the most difficult aspects of moving into a new home, but with a little professional help, the task will much less complicated.
4. Peace of MindThe cost of hiring a professional mover can’t be compared to peace of mind. Knowing that your possessions will be taken care of by trained experts is sure to be a relief in the weeks leading up to your moving date. You won’t have to worry about the complex logistics involved with packing and unpacking, giving you more time to take care of other important tasks. Even if family and friends offer to help out, they simply won’t have the same skills and knowledge as a professional mover, no matter how good their intentions.
5. SafetyNot only is moving stressful, it can also be dangerous. The risk of injury is heightened by a lack of experience, and even something as small as straining your back while trying to a lift a heavy box can put you out of action for weeks, throwing your moving plans into disarray. There’s no need to feel as though you’re trying to avoid all the hard work by hiring a professional mover. They are highly trained in safe moving practices, and can eliminate the possibility of you injuring yourself. What with all the packing, cleaning and organising to be done, moving from one home and into another isn’t a task to be taken lightly.
