If you’re careful with your money, it’s likely you won’t want to pay anybody to do something that you can complete yourself. The reality is that while you might think you’re saving money, you could be wasting a lot of time and still end up paying a lot of money as well. Here are three jobs you’re better off getting someone else to do.
Washing your car
You might think washing your car is a simple task that you can carry out yourself to save a bit of cash. In fact, it can be a more complicated task than you think. It isn’t just a case of wiping around your car with a sponge and then squiring it with a hose. You have to make sure you remove all of the dirt from your car, which often involves a lot of muscle. If your car is really dirty, you might find yourself having to change your water repeatedly. You’ll then need to dry it to make sure no streaks are left on the bodywork and most importantly the windows. Once you’ve done the outside, you’ll then need to vacuum, clean and polish the inside as well.
Once you’ve paid for all the equipment, the specialist car soaps and shampoos and even the water, a simple car wash at home will have already cost you a lot of money. Instead of going to all of this effort and still paying out a lot of money, why not get experts to do it for you. You could even end up paying less than if you did it yourself. For example, Wash ‘N Go offers a $5 car wash to clean the outside and inside of your car. Even if you buy the cheapest of materials, you’ll struggle to wash your car yourself for a lower price.
Get rid of your extra rubbish
If you carry out a major DIY project, you’ll probably find yourself with a lot of waste to get rid of. Most of this, whether it’s bricks, cement or even an old bathroom suite, won’t be suitable for your normal waste collection. Instead, you could take it to a local scrapyard to dispose of correctly. The only problem is, not only do you have to drive to the scrapyard, you’ll have to spend more time breaking your waste into smaller pieces to fit into your car. Even if you do fit the waste in your car, you’ll be left with a lot of dust to clean up afterward and could even scratch your interior. Instead of attempting to dispose of the waste yourself, consider paying someone with a van to dispose of it for you. Not only will it save you time, but it could save you money on fixing and cleaning the interior of your car once you’ve disposed of the rubbish.
Moving house can be one of the most stressful days of your adult life. It can be even more stressful if you decide to move all of your belongings and furniture yourself. Not only will you be exhausted by the stress, you’ll also be exhausted from all the heavy lifting. Make the big day easier for yourself by hiring a team of removal people to help move all of your belongings. Even if you hired a small van, it would take you several trips to move all of your furniture whereas a professional team could do it all in one trip.
