It's unlikely that you have the necessary equipment on hand to move items back and forth to a vehicle or simply thrown around your house, as buying and maintaining these items can be expensive once purchased. Some of the specialized things that moving companies offer are vehicles and packaging supplies, plus much more. Therefore, moving is expensive because of the amount of labor involved. Each household must weigh the costs incurred with the time spent by the moving company to determine the optimal combination.
While moving is expensive, it's justified by the amount of care and work involved. I think it's money well spent in the context of the price of a move in general. People forget that long-distance moving also costs more: often two days of work and accommodation because of the time limits you can drive or work. Paying a few hundred pounds more to professionals means, in many cases, having a very large van and several trained workers to assess how long it takes for a house to pack their bags, do it quickly and efficiently without them getting emotionally involved in things, loading the van in the most efficient way and doing everything inside.
They take care of all kinds of heavy things, which is absolutely exhausting in addition to the stress of moving and cleaning the old property. They have all the right equipment in the right quantities and you don't realize that you're missing 3 boxes or that you've overloaded a box and can't move it. In addition, they do everything one or two days before the move, and they don't move on their own, since they usually start packing weeks in advance and have to live surrounded by boxes and them, since the exchange dates do not match those expected. When you arrive at the new property, when you have a moving company, you can run in, take a look around and get excited.
The carriers will move all the equipment to the appropriate rooms, climb the stairs, and literally do the heavy lifting. If you've already had to do it on the way out, even with the help of one or two friends, in the end you'll be in a mess, unless it's a first move and you don't have a lot of things. In my opinion, for about a thousand dollars, it's worth it and I would always include it in the cost list of a move. And they can achieve all of this because they are highly trained professionals, with extensive experience and well equipped.
However, every piece of equipment and every hour of training costs money. In addition, good moving companies have good reputations and, therefore, receive more work requests than they can handle. Therefore, they are expensive (or so it seems at first glance). Professional carriers can take care of all aspects of the arduous relocation process, not only packing, loading and driving, but also planning the move, resolving access issues, processing parking permits, providing additional insurance, tracing the safest and shortest routes to the destination, tracking the shipment, storing the items, and so on.
Anyone who has used a moving company knows that a good, full-service moving team is highly trained and capable; they make a move a good experience.
