Should you move it yourself?
When to hire a removals company vs moving home yourself! If you are moving from a small house or flat, or even out of your parents, it is always worth hiring a professional company to help. We may not believe you have much to move, but chances are if you are moving items, they hold value to you and possible sentimental value. There is a skill to packing fragile and precious items, to ensure they are protected and do not get damaged during transit. Devon and Dorset Removals understand moving home can be a stressful time, but also an exciting or emotional time, we can move your items safely and place them securely in your new home.
