Sat side by side are a Euro 10 cent coin and a Brazilian 10 Centavos coin
This is just one example of none Euro coins that can be mistaken at a Glance for euro coins
There are more (of higher value )
So in the last blog entry of this blog i discussed why using a mover is better than (in most cases) than self moving and how that was partly due to the experience (often vast experience )that professional movers have , but that only really touched on the subject of a movers experience
So I will be again discussing it and expanding on what i previously said
you might have expected me to discuss equipment movers have and how that is an advantage which is true but experience comes in here to , a mover has the equipment to do the job yes and the knowledge gained means they know how to use that said equipment in an effective and safe manner.
So what you might say anyone can use a sack barrow yes that is true but a sack barrow is only one piece of equipment.
I am more referring to things likes of Ratchet straps (and other load securing means) and the knowledge of how to properly load and secure the load on to the removal vehicle in a way that is :
B The weight is properly distributed (as there is axle weight (each axle on a vehicle has a max weight each axle can take)
C The weight is evenly distributed so one part of the removals vehicle is not over weight/over balanced (connect also to Axle weight)
when it comes to moving house/home there is no denying it can be stressful , so why would you want to increase that stress and self move ?
Are there any advantages of self moving ?
Well in my professional opinion no there are not and your better off letting a professional mover do your move for you ,but i hear you saying , oh but as a removals company your bound to say that , which is true but it does not change the fact, we think your better off letting a professional mover do it for you , lets explore why that is the case
A good removals team do house moves all the time (and yes while no two properties are the same) and that experience builds up , a mover , will for example though that experience know how to lift and handle more awkward or heavy items , safely and effectively,
And have the experience and knowledge how to get things though tricky spots
Plus ever noticed a removals person walking backwards while carrying large items ? Well when carrying many 2 person objects a person will need to be walking backwards and that is a skill in its own right , one thing you may have also noticed when watching movers at work is how often they can do a two person lift and carry the item straight to the removals vehicle when you would/might have had to put it down several times yes some time movers also need to do that )
I could go on about Experience for hours but I think you get the point , the fact a professional mover is doing this all the time is one of the key benefits,
Experience breeds expertise
(I will discuss the others in follow on pieces so that I can explore them in detail without this becoming to long)
So we are into the 6th Month of 2021 here are a few of our stats for the year

Do you cover the Canary islands ?
No due to the very expensive ferries this is one route we don't send the van on
