Pros & Cons On Hiring Mover & Packer Service

Relocating can be a very hectic task with so many things to take care of. Families who are well established in their current location find it all the more difficult to relocate, not because of a new location but because of all the winding up they have to do – pay the bills, change the postal address, cancel services like the newspaper or cable connection and most importantly pack everything. Owing to this, many people prefer hiring mover and packer services to help them during this time of relocation. Despite the various advantages of hiring professional help while moving, some people still have a sceptical outlook towards such service providers.

Pros And Cons On Hiring Mover & Packer Service

Listed below are some pros and cons of hiring mover & packer service

Pros of Hiring Movers and Packer Service

The biggest advantage is that it saves you a lot of time. With so many things to take care of, time is always a constraint and any help you can get certainly comes as a blessing in disguise. 

Moving also requires a lot of organization and hiring professional help can also help you in this aspect. They pack and move your stuff in an organized manner so that when you arrive at your new place, you don’t have to open all your boxes to find something you need. The boxes are labelled so that you know exactly where your belongings are packed. Moreover, your personal belongings are less likely to get damaged as the professionals you hire are very skilled in what they do. Therefore, you can rest assured that your things are in safe hands.

Another great advantage is that all good mover and packer service providers have insurance coverage to make sure that you don’t have to pay for any damage to your belongings while in the care of the company. This ensures that your belongings will be transported to your new location in the good conditions.

Hiring a mover and packer service company also leaves you stress free so that you can take time to handle other necessary arrangements. The service provider takes care of everything from packing your stuff, loading it, shifting it to your new location and then unloading it at your new residence. People who move around a lot know exactly what it feels like to get this burden off their shoulders.

Cons of Hiring Movers and Packer Service

The biggest disadvantage of this service is that it may prove to be very expensive for people who are not in a good enough financial situation to pay the huge fee these companies demand. This fee can range across several hundred dollars depending on how much stuff you have to pack and move. Nevertheless, be certain that the bill won’t be a small amount.

Another disadvantage is that you may have strangers roaming around in your house throughout the day. Many people are not comfortable with this as they may have valuables lying around in their homes. Also, during such times, your home becomes more vulnerable to crimes like robbery as sometimes a stranger may walk into your home and you let him, thinking it may be someone from the packing company.

You also don’t have control over the whole packing process. When you pack your own stuff, you’re at the liberty to pack one room at a time but with professional help, the packers pack and move your stuff according to their convenience. You also have no control over which items they pack in which box, though they nearly label the boxes later. 

Tips On Choosing A Reliable Movers and Packer Service

Before you zero down on a company, its best to shop around and make a list of the service providers you feel will do a good job. Once you’ve done that, check the reputation of these companies by seeing how satisfied their previous customers were and how cost effective they are.

Once you’ve finally decided on the service provider, sit down with them and clearly communicate your requirements so that they known exactly what you want. Get a clear estimate from them and ask them for any hidden costs or fees that you may incur later. 

Always do business with mover & packer service providers that have insurance and a license to conduct their business legally. This prevents any unwanted situations later on.

Unlike other hidden cost movers in Singapore, they quoted me a $450 NETT for a 1 truck 14 foot full load for my home relocation. They even offered me some moving tips and sent me the boxes for moving preparation. They are very honest and reliable. Highly recommended.
