The most important reason why any company should hire professional removalists is to avoid the occupational hazards which can be found in the workplace.

Relocating these items involves a lot of pushing and pulling, bending, twisting and turning. Improper lifting techniques and/or bad form while performing these procedures can also lead to back and knee pain. Back injuries tend to be a direct result of this while knee injuries occur when an excessive amount of force is exerted. This is not something to under-look given that over a half a million injury claims have been made from these very causes in specific through the last year.
