As previously mentioned, no moving is easy. Along with the emotional stress that is logical to appear (as much as you enjoy the thought of living at a new place, leaving your current home behind means leaving a part of yourself behind), it is also very stressful keeping things organised. Unless you’re absolutely confident in your moving skills, or had previous experience, the best option would be to rely on professionals and their furniture removal services. Their expertise and assistance can rid you of your worries and help you get to your new place stress-free. However, don’t expect them to handle everything on their own, and make sure you stay organised beforehand for a smooth move. There is an etiquette you’d have to acquire and stick to before, during and after the move.
First things first, you have to create a list of all the items you intend to take to the new place. This will give removalists an idea of how many helping hands they’d need and give you an estimate concerning the price. This is also the step where you get to choose whether you’d like to, and whether you could afford to, get their assistance with other issues other than transport, and that includes packing and unpacking at your new home as well as getting rid of the unwanted items for you, either recycling them or giving them out to charity. Having the number of items clear can give an insight to the number of supplies you’re going to need, the amount of boxes, tapes, bubble wrap and paper that will be required to be specific. Certain companies that have plenty of experience behind them include special moving offers as part of their furniture removal services, such as transporting pianos and pool tables.
While it’s important to stay out of their way, it’s also important to stay nearby and give them a hand whenever needed in some situations like opening doors and moving cables and carpets out of their step. Give them all the information you think is necessary and explain where they might find difficulty when moving, such as narrow hallways and staircases. Since they are people who also get tired due to all the physical work, make sure you prepare some light snack for them and keep them hydrated. It would give them just the right amount of energy to tackle your move efficiently and you’d show off how good of a host you are. Give them the heads up on fragile items so there’d be less chance for accidents, label the boxes properly and empty out drawers and desks. Help them help you!
