Having to drive your car back and forth between your two homes can expend a lot of fuel which can be very costly. Not only is it costly, it is also bad for the environment. Depending on how far your two houses are from each other this could be a major issue and rack up to a very large sum.
Transporting items yourself takes a large amount of time. Expending a large amount of time on something so monotonous is very draining. Not only that, it also leaves less time to do the other things that you will need to do for your move. In order to enjoy your new home, you will want to finish all parts of your move as quickly as possible. For this reason it is very unrealistic to move homes without a removal company unless you have next to no personal belongings.
Trailer or van hire
If you are moving all of your belongings yourself, chances are you will have things that you won't be able to fit in your car. This will include things such as large furniture. Because of this, you will have to hire some means of transporting large items such as a trailer or a van. Not only does a trailer require you to have a vehicle with a tow bar, both options cost money. If you are going to be spending money anyway it might be better to put that money towards hiring a moving company.
If you are transporting your belongings yourself, you will be entirely reliant on your vehicle. If the worst happens on the day and your car breaks down you will be faced with a lot of trouble. Not only will this be a large inconvenience, it will also cost a lot of precious time that could be spent on other more important parts of the move.
Not only is moving yourself mentally exhausting, it is also physically exhausting. Professional furniture removalists have bodys that are used to lifting and moving heavy furniture for a long period of time. If you are not athletic, you may find that you will struggle greatly to move all of your furniture by yourself. The toll that this will take on you will greatly increase with the amount of furniture that you own. If you own a large amount of furniture, chances are, you will tire yourself out greatly. Even if you do manage to get through everything, you will be left in a state with little to no energy left for the rest of the move.
