Moving home can be a stressful process in more ways than you might think. On the one hand, there’s lots of hard work involved. Planning, packing, transportation arrangements all have to be taken care of and that’s a very time consuming process. That’s not all, though, there’s potential emotional stress. If you have a family and children, this is where you will see it most. Moving house, particularly if it’s long distance means moving you and your family’s life around, and that can be hard.

Don’t fret though, because you can deal with both of these problems by hiring S1 moving services. Both professional movers and man and van movers will take care of most, (and in some cases all) of the hard work, which allows you more free time to unwind and let the emotional stresses melt away. So, when conducting a move from the Sheffield Town Centre and its surrounding area, you should definitely hire some type of moving help.

The question is, though; which one should you hire? Moving companies and man and van companies have their advantages and disadvantages, and everyone is different. So to find the right one for you, you’ve got to do some research and some detective work. Here are the steps that you need to take.

First, you’ll want to figure out what kind of moving company you need. Because, as I mentioned earlier, professional movers and S1 man and van services have their upsides and downsides, here they are;

Professional moving companies

+ Have access to more staff and van sizes, so they’re more efficient.
+ Full insurance cover for all contents, whereas with the man and van mover, it’ll usually cost extra.

- In pretty much any moving situation, it’s the more expensive option.

Man and van hire

+ Provides all of the same services that a professional mover does.
+ Very good value for money, cheaper in every way.

- Service, while competent is usually limited by its small staff pool.

So have a think about your moving requirements, and see which of these two options is the best fit.

I would recommend the man and van movers to those who are on a budget and want to spend their extra money on extra furnishings. Or, to those making a small to medium sized move (1-2 bedroomed house size). Because on a relatively small job, you’re not really sacrificing any efficiency by going for the man and van mover. And, by the same token, a professional mover is better suited to larger moves, because you’ll want that extra moving efficiency.

Choosing your moving type is only the first step, you now have to hire the right one. To make the right choice you’ll have to do a little bit of legwork and research. First, have a look around and note down all of the companies in your area that fit your criteria. I recommend local companies for dependability’s sake – a local company will know the area, and will know the best routes as a result. Be as thorough as possible, look not only on the Internet but also in small ads. You might find some gems.

Now that the list has been made, you can see which ones are best suited to you, and which ones are definitely not worth your time. Look on customer review web sites, and keep the advice given there in mind. Who offers the best customer service? Who’s the best value? Once you’ve answered these questions, you can start getting price quotes.

You’ll have to do a bit of Internet surfing to find the S1 moving company, but it’s definitely worth it. A good moving company is the best resource to have when conducting any kind of removal, and you’ll want to take all of the necessary steps to make sure that happens. From quality to prices, you need to take everything into account.
