Moving tips – The great struggle

One of life’s great struggles is the dreaded move, which most if not all of us will experience on several occasions throughout our lives. So much can go wrong and does, which leads to unneeded stress. Here we cover just some of the things that can go wrong and do!


Damage goods due to packing problems


It is VERY important to ensure that your possessions are correctly packed as if not these can be easily damaged or broken. This means making sure the correct packing materials are used such as PPS timber pallets, which will help protect your valuables. People make several mistakes such as not using adequate amounts of packaging and thus receive their things back in poor condition. Extra time should be taken with your valuables to make sure they are packed correctly in order to save any issues once they are returned.




Property Damage


You are always looking to leave your property in the best shape possible, and this is even more important for renters who are looking to get their security deposit back for example. Therefore, when moving it is of great importance for you or the removal company to take extra care. Dropping a heavy item can result in damage to walls, banisters and even flooring. You could have some of your furniture badly damage and lose your deposit in one incident. This is another reason why packaging becomes even more important!


Another factor is the struggle to fit furniture out of the house. How did it get there and now it seems too big to get out? This can also transfer when moving in and attempting to put your furniture in place at your new property. These are not thought of as being an issue until it happens. This is why using professionals can always help but on extreme occasions people are left with no option but to leave their possessions. This could mean they are put in a storage facility, which can be extremely costly.


Putting necessities in place for your new property


Everything can be going smoothly on the day with no property getting damaged which is a major plus, but there are many things you must do in advance for the big day. You need to transfer over your utilities, in order for your gas, water and electricity to be in place upon arrival in your new property. Many people can forget to do these as they have been so busy with the move. If all these things are put in place then there is much more chance that the day can go to plan for you and it won’t be that big struggle.
