Benefits of Hiring A Mover When Moving House in Malaysia

Malaysia is an exciting place to live yet there are various reasons why staying in one place for too long is not for everyone. Perhaps you’re work contract is up and you’re heading home or you’ve found a regional centre you like the look of. Whatever the reason, if you are moving house in Malaysia you’ll need to consider your options. If you’re only moving a short distance in Kuala Lumpur, and you have generous friends who’ve offered to help you move, it can be tempting to ask for their help instead of professional movers. However, this can be fraught with plenty of obstacles, least of all getting offside with your good mates if they don’t see your ‘big picture’ at your next address.

If you are moving house in Malaysia and are unsure whether to hire a professional moving service, here are a list of positives to help you make up your mind.

We Have Professional Tools & Training

Your furniture may not feel too heavy when carrying a single item but loading and unloading countless large items of furniture can cause injuries. If you do not have the right tools to lift the furniture into the vehicle, nor the experience and strength to carry the items, back injuries are very common during a move. You would be surprised at the weight of a washing machine, fridge or chest of drawers even over short distances.

The team at Allied Pickfords has not only the right equipment for your move, we have years and years of experience moving property in Malaysia. We use straps to keep furniture secure when moving it on specialised trollies or dollies. We use ramps to get furniture over obstacles or into low trucks. Some of our trucks are equipped with lifts. This does not only facilitate moving furniture and heavy boxes with much less risk of injury, but also protects your precious belongings from knocks on doorframes, steps or staircases that may be along the way.

We Can Save You Time and Effort

Moving house is an arduous and stressful task and our professional Malaysian movers know how to move your entire home and possessions efficiently, as our teams have done it hundreds of times. It can take weeks for a homeowner to pack up an entire house and prepare for a move. Weeks of long days, deciding how to organise everything, planning so that none of your personal items, delicate artwork or family heirlooms are broken in the move. Our packers and movers have years of experience ensuring that every item is packed, secured, protected and ready to go in as little as a day. Even with your friends’ help, most people would struggle to beat our efficiency.

We Are Experienced and Insured

Your friends and family will try to do their best when moving your belongings, but items that are not well protected or that are being handled by people who are tiring at the end of what is likely to be an exhausting day could end up having an accident. Moving personal belongings is what we do on a daily basis. We do not want our insurance premiums to go up, so we do everything we can to avoid breakages or knocks. We lose money when these things happen, so we’d hate to think what might happen if one of your buddies damaged something that is priceless to you for either sentimental or financial reasons. Remember your friends and family are not insured.
