Should I Hire a Mover or Do It Myself?
When moving home, you may be hit with the dilemma of whether to hire a team of professional movers or attempt to do the entire move yourself. There are pros and cons to both, and at Pers Removals, we’re going to look at these.
Begin Preparing and Be Organised!
Before you even decide whether or not to conduct the move yourself or hire professional movers, you should start preparing regardless. There are a number of things that need to be completed before a big move, so the more organized you are, the smoother it will go.
Checklists are a great start. Make one for each room and write down all of the items you no longer need so that you can arrange for them to be recycled or donated to charity. Also, consider creating a moving timeline. Set goals for dates on the run up to your move.
How Much Stuff Are You Moving?
You need to assess the situation first and foremost. If you’re moving lots of items from a relatively large house, it would make sense to hire movers as it may be too big a task for you to complete alone. If you’re only moving some boxes from a small flat and leaving the furniture behind, you may be best moving them yourself in your own car or transportation. However, regardless of the size of move, we at Pers Removals can help.
How Far Away is Your New Home?
Let’s say for example you’re moving overseas. In this case, the chances are, you will want to consider moving with professionals as they will be able to effectively and efficiently organise this for you. Expert movers, including our team here at Pers Removals, have years of experience and understanding in what’s involved in both local and international moves. It can be a stressful time, so often it’s best left to the guys who know how it’s done. Alternatively, if you are just moving down the street, you probably won’t need a host of movers helping you.
Do You Need Help Packing?
If you have lots of belongings and find the thought of having to pack it all yourself just too stressful, enquire as to whether or not your local moving company can assist you with the packing process. We certainly can!
If you have some items that you don’t want to move with you just yet, you may want to consider using a storage facility. This is also something we can help you with so get in touch to find out more.

What Our Clients Say
‘This is just to thank you and your team for the fantastic service during my move from Crouch End to Bexley. Everything was packed beautifully and the crew who moved me were fantastic, remaining friendly and good-humoured throughout. The piano was successfully moved from the first floor and everything arrived intact. It was really worth having the packing service as well, and my stress levels were kept well under control, so well done!’

‘Excellent company – gave me a really good price and fantastic service. We had the full packing service on the Monday, then they finished packing, and moved us on the Tuesday – on time and on schedule. Kav even had five guys on the job, on the Tuesday morning, which kept us on schedule. No breakages, everything was well packed: highly recommended.
We’ll be moving again in the next year, this time with a piano – we hope to use Pers Removals again!’

‘Three charming chaps arrived to move my piano from Maidenhead to West London. They took time to plan the moving process and communicated well with each other. They had several steps to cope with inside the house, and a few outside. I was expecting the piano to be bumped about – but not at all. Such care was taken – the piano could have been a newborn baby and would have come to no harm! Now that I have found Pers I will definitely use them again.’
