We all know that moving homes can be a pretty stressful and complex project that comes with a lot of challenges and risks. So, learning how to reduce the amount of strain you will be going through when planning, preparing for and actually executing it will be worth it. Having the peace of mind that your personal belongings – including furniture, expensive appliances and valuable mementos from your life – are not in danger of being damaged during transportation is the best way to ensure you will not be overwhelmed by the specs of your relocation. Here are several excellent tips that will help you to easily make that happen.
Dismantle what can be dismantled
Bulky furniture, office equipment and appliances with odd shapes can be a nightmare to move. Many of those, however, can be disassembled into smaller parts with relative ease, which will allow you to put them away in smaller boxes that will be easier and safer to handle. Check if the items you wish to get moved from point A to point B across the city can be dismantled and if the answer is positive, proceed to do that following the instructions left by the manufacturer. The time and energy you will invest in such a task will be well worth it, because it will save you a lot of trouble come moving day.
Invest in high-quality packing supplies
In order to secure your goods for the road, you will need the following supplies:
- Durable double-walled removal boxes
- Bubble wrap
- Wrapping paper
- Labelling materials
Check if your moving firm of choice offers easily-accessible moving boxes delivery and packing in London. This will likely be the cheapest way to obtain the materials that you require without making compromises with quality.*
*If you need specific tips for packing, just ask your movers – they will be more than happy to provide you with the assistance you require.
Do a clearance first
Go through your possessions and sort out the things that you would like to take with you. Get rid of the rest – throw away, sell or donate. By reducing the number of boxes you will be bringing along, you will not only make it easier to look after the safety and integrity of your possessions, but you will also have to pay less on the overall moving service. After all, you will be reducing the amount of manpower and time, as well as the size of the transit vehicle that will be needed in order to complete the project.
Be clear about your requirements
If certain items of yours have great personal value, or you know for a fact that they are fragile, then talk about them with your movers in advance. Furthermore, do not forget to clearly list the contents of each box you pack, as well as the place they are supposed to go to at your new home so that your movers can take the necessary precautions and handle them with extra care. It is that simple and that efficient.
