Some of your household goods are easier to transport than others. This means that you need to think about how to make the process as easy as possible, both for yourself and for the removal men who need to pack everything into their van.
Lamps and small toys are some of the easiest possessions to transport on your moving day. However, what are some of the most difficult goods to transport?
Mirrors are one of the most difficult things that have to be transported on the day of the move. You need to think about how the mirrors can be protected because the glass is prone to shattering and the frames can break apart if they are sliding around when the van is moving.
There are a couple of ways to make sure that the mirror is not going to be damaged at all. Firstly, the mirror can be wrapped in a combination of polyethene and bubble wrap. This needs to be taped into place to make sure that it is not going to fall out of place. If the wrapping falls off, then the mirror could potentially become seriously damaged.
You can also have mirrors transported separately by removal services in Bury St Edmunds to ensure that no other pieces of furniture are going to crash into it when it is being transported. There will be enough room in the back of the truck to lie the mirrors flat on their backs in secured cardboard boxes. Then the cardboard and wrapping can be removed after the mirrors have been transported to the new house. Some companies will charge you extra for transporting these goods on their own, whilst others will include it in the final cost.
Wardrobes are one of the bulkiest pieces of furniture that you have. You should try and have the doors and legs removed before the wardrobe is put into the back of the van. This is the easiest way for the wardrobe to arrive at your new house. However, some older wardrobes cannot be dismantled in this way and they need to be transported as a whole. This means that the wardrobe needs to be protected in the back of the van. Have the wardrobe laid down flat on its back and get the removals company to fasten the wardrobe to the floor of the truck by using straps.
When the truck is moving, the wardrobe will then be completely immobile. A ramp can be used to get the wardrobe out from the back of the truck and then down into the house.
You may have lots of garden machinery that need to be safely transported. Make sure to drain the oil and other chemicals out of the machines before they are transported. Equipment like lawnmowers can get damaged during the move and this could cause the liquid to leak out onto your other possessions.
You should put some careful thought into how fragile items are going to be transported on moving day.
