Moves You Shouldn’t DIY

Why pay someone to do something when you can do it yourself? We Australians, with our can-do attitude, love to do projects ourselves—without the help of a professional.

When it comes to moving, though, there are a few types of removals you should never try to do without the help of professional removalists:


Long-Distance Moves


Unless you’re moving for the first time into a fully furnished flat, a DIY long-distance move just isn’t feasible.

If you’re moving house from Sydney to one of the other major cities in the country, you can’t do it a little each day with your ute like you could if you were just moving a couple of streets away.


Moves that Involve Valuables


When you move valuables, you risk breakage. Whether they are antiques, fine art, or fine musical instruments, a professional antiques removalist will be better equipped to care for them during the move. More importantly, you can insure your valuables with removals insurance so if they do become damaged, you will receive compensation.


Office Moves


If you’re not moving your home, but rather your business, you need a professional. Today’s electronic office equipment is highly sensitive, with wires and other parts that need to stay with the equipment, lest they get lost. Furthermore, if you lose a piece of valuable office equipment due to amateur mistakes, it could shut down vital aspects of your business until you replace it. And—with a professional office removalist, you can buy insurance to help you replace these important tools that keep your business going, should any damage occur.

Though there are plenty of projects that are perfect for the DIYer, most types of moves aren’t. Don’t risk a week of lost work over a pulled muscle, your precious valuables, or days of lost business just because you wanted to save a few dollars on a move.
