Moving companies can take such a burden off your shoulders when relocating from Johannesburg to Cape Town. And yet, many people aren’t sure if it’s worth spending the money or rather opting for the DIY route. Taking a look at removal companies from the perspective of their pros and cons is advantageous because it will help you make a decision whether hiring a removal company is right for you.
Pros of using moving companies
By using a moving company, you avoid getting caught up in the planning and execution of the move. You have one point of contact, making the whole moving process less challenging and stressful.
It’s true that moving isn’t rocket science but there are some skills needed for a successful relocation. From planning to packing and loading and unloading the truck, if done wrong, you risk your belongings being damaged or even destroyed.
While it’s completely optional, moving companies can do the packing for you. This means that you don’t have to start weeks in advance since they can pack up a medium sized house in one day. What’s even better is that they have special tools and gadgets to help with loading the heavy furniture into the truck.
Like finding a school for your children or a job (in case you don’t have one yet). Getting your pets ready for the 1400 km drive is a tall order and will also need some of your attention. With so many loose ends, having time to focus on preparing your family for the big move is more important than arranging the move yourself.
Cons of using moving companies
Doing anything yourself will cost you less than hiring help. But if you take your time into consideration, are you really saving money? And what if you damage that beloved item because you didn’t have the necessary experience or know how when packing it?
There are a lot of scams and fly-by-nights ready to steal your money. One way to avoid being scammed is to do your homework and speak to the happy clients of your potential moving company.
But also less stress. Need I say more?
The decision to hire professionals or to move yourself is completely up to your personality, unique needs and the specifics of said move. If you are moving from Johannesburg to Cape Town, or you have a huge home, a “do it yourself” move will be much more challenging. Equally so if you have children and other responsibilities. Hiring a moving company like BusyBee Removals will make the moving process a much easier.
