Thursday, 29 July 2021

It is a well-known fact that moving to a new house is about one of the most stressful things that a person can do in their life. Uprooting your entire routine, packing it all into a thousand boxes and starting all over again. However, we at Taylor’s have some helpful and potentially life saving advice that might make the process a touch easier.

There are several things you can do to make a move less stressful for everyone involved.

Firstly! Disassemble your flat-pack furniture. It isn’t built to last or to be moved. These items can often fall apart at the slightest jolt or provocation. Don’t take the risk! Packing it down will increase the odds of you being able to use it again.

Next, empty your drawers! Carrying furniture with items left inside is not only dangerous for whoever is moving the item, but it can also lead to things being broken. Along the same lines, make sure to double tape your boxes and don’t try to recycle boxes that are too old because it will cause more pain in the long run if the box gives out.

Be clear with your removalists what needs to be moved and what doesn’t. Often people have items they plan to throw away and sell online but by the time they need to move it doesn’t happen. Be sure to let your removalists know what does not need to be moves so you aren’t paying extra for items you don’t even want!

Our final tip is to make sure that you clearly highlight fragile goods! Don’t risk your valuables. Remember that all those brown boxes start looking the same after a while, even if you are the one who packed them. Be sure to label them clearly to avoid any unwanted accidents and damage.
