Comments Off on Should you ask your friends to help you move?
So you just found out your lease is about to finish and you need to move out. You are looking around your place and noticing a lot more items laying around since you moved in. These items, such as your new big flat screen TV and that custom made lounge from Space Furniture took quite a big dent out of your wallet. You are currently deciding whether you should call your friend with the truck or call a professional Brisbane removalist while also thinking about the safety of your valuable new furniture.
While you are probably worried about damage to your furniture you should be more worried about damage to your property. More damage actually occurs during moves with untrained professionals to just the property. If you are renting, you definitely want your bond back, that means you need to make sure there are no scrapes or dents. If something does happen while you and your friend are moving your furniture, would you really hold them accountable for any accidents that could occur?
In the initial planning stages of moving, it may look to be a lot cheaper to move yourself but is it really? You need to add all of the little costs that add up when you are moving yourself, such as, moving blankets, dolly rentals, tie-downs, furnwrap, plus all of the food and drinks you will need to supply your helping friends! These little things can start to add up very quickly and on top of this, how comfortable do you feel driving a truck?
If you are thinking of having your friends help, it will most likely be on the weekend as most people will be working during the week. This means if they did have anything planned or even just their usual weekend tradition of watching sport on the television, this now needs to be postponed as they will now be helping you, since they most likely won’t want to say no. It is very common for clients of ours to underestimate the time it will take to complete a move. If you do decide to rent a truck and it turns out you will need to continue going the next day, how will you be certain your friends will still be available then? This will also add extra charges for hiring out the truck for additional days.
Your safety and the safety of your friends is very important. Do you both know the correct way to lift and move furniture? If not, you risk the chance of pulling something or throwing your back out. Are you going to pay for your friends chiropractor and doctor? That’s not really something you want to be responsible for. It may sound a little dramatic now, but it does happen.
If you do get your friends to help you think about all the favours you will owe them after! Next time any of them want to move, you will be the first they call. It is fair, but we wouldn’t want you to have to miss an important event to return a favour.
