​So you've made the decision to relocate... One of life's major pressures is the logistics of itemising, packing, and transporting everything from point A to point B. Is this a process that you can or want to complete on your own? This is the first of a series of questions you'll have to ask yourself while making the decision to relocate.

Consider the following questions:

This will necessitate a high level of organisation, especially given the time constraints, contractual commitments, and financial stakes! So, to begin, everything starts with planning...

  • What number of boxes will you require, and where will you obtain them?

  • Is it possible to keep everything you need to move in boxes?

  • Will the products be secure if they aren't in boxes?

  • But what about the contents of the boxes? Are they going to be safe as well?

  • Insurance might be a good idea here, but how and where can you find the best bargain from a reliable insurer?

This is simply the first step, and it's already a little daunting.

Why don't you hire a professional mover?

Moving all of your worldly goods yourself is not a task to be taken lightly (particularly if you are moving a family). It's perfectly acceptable to recognise that this task isn't for everyone! Here's where we get into the advantages of hiring a moving company... The stressful aspects of moving are handled for you, and you, as the customer, assist in overseeing the process.

Hiring a professional mover is definitely the best way to go if you want to avoid the heavy physical labour of moving and don't want to drive a large and unfamiliar rental van (provided you have a driver's licence).

Choosing a Relocation Company

Moving companies want you to become a customer, so many will offer free services like insurance, white-glove service, and apps or technology to help you track and manage your move with the help of a professional move coordinator. You can investigate internet quotes to compare services on offer vs. price while things are still in the planning stages before anything is even packed up. Keep in mind that the cheapest quote may not always purchase you the most reliable service...

Before making a decision, look into the experience and reputation of the moving company you're considering. It's sometimes worth paying a little extra for the professionalism and quality service that pricier moving companies can provide – this is especially true if you're moving large, specialty, fragile, or valuable items, as quality movers will have the knowledge and equipment to safely transport your belongings.

Technology as a service

Some moving firms have the ability to provide you with apps or technologies to assist you with your move. This could involve real-time tracking of your household belongings, which is very important if you are relocating internationally. Other technologies could include AI help, in which a specifically built chatbot is accessible to answer basic questions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Another popular technological trend is the availability of applications that allow you to not only book your move but also add to and modify it while you're on the go (allowing you to add insurance or other services). When choosing a mover, think about whether technology is vital to you.

Companies that help people move: it's a win-win situation.

The obvious advantages include the assistance of industry professionals who are trained and equipped to make the traditionally difficult moving process stress-free and simple. With the help of a packing service, you won't have to worry about the logistics of getting your belongings safely into the appropriate boxes, you won't have to worry about whether you have the necessary manpower, and you won't have to make multiple trips to get a home's worth of belongings to a new location. Everything will be handled by the moving company.

Finances and Risk

Cost is a major consideration; it's tempting to think, "Why pay someone else to move all these things when I can do it myself?" Consider it a calculated risk vs. reward situation. You may be charged a set cost for a job by a moving firm, or you may be charged an hourly rate by some. This would be compared against the expense of you needing to buy or rent any equipment you might need, as well as the physical work you'll have to put in to get the task done.
