Before you take direct action and move any awkward objects you must ensure they will fit into any new designated space. Keep a tape measure handy as part of your moving day kit to ensure you can measure dimensions as quickly as possible.
Plan the move
Ensure that the path is clear for you to move any awkward objects without the danger of tripping over any other items. You should also aim to have the space the object is going to clear of mess to make the process as painless as possible.
Use proper equipment
There may be items or appliances in your home that require specialist equipment and/or expertise in order to be moved safely to their new location. If this is the case you should tell your removals company in advance to ensure they arrive prepared on moving day, as they may need to bring special equipment that they would not normally include as part of their regular moving kit.
Protect in transit
In order to avoid unnecessary damage to your treasured possessions you should use a variety of protective materials to help guard against disasters whilst in transit. If you are packing your own items you may find your removals company can provide you with some heavy duty materials that will give you peace of mind. Although, if you can afford it, you may simply decide to save yourself the stress of packing, and allow your removal firm to pack your belongings from start to finish.
If your removals company is going to do your packing for you, they will come equipped with everything they need to handle your move. Make sure you tell them in advance of any unusual items that you would like to move so that they can provide the correct protective materials for the job.
Remember – if you pack your own items, the removal company’s insurance is unlikely to cover items in boxes that you have packed and sealed yourself.
