the previous property.

Sometimes it takes a bit of foresight to realize that in fact, the best options are often those that will serve you in the long run, rather than just in terms of saving in the here and now.

For instance, doing the whole move on your own with a mate and a rented van may seem like a great idea; you do a hard day's work, spend very little on the van, and have a satisfying drink in the evening to celebrate. However, the reality is that if something gets dropped like your TV or a priceless heirloom, then the overall cost of the move is probably going to be more than if you had hired professional help.
