One of the most significant concerns during a whole house move is the potential for damage to your precious belongings. Whether you’re relocating across town or across the country, understanding the common types of damage that can occur during a move and knowing how to prevent them is essential. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the typical forms of damage that can happen and provide practical tips on how to safeguard your items.
One of the most effective ways to move economically is to start planning well in advance. Early planning allows you to explore cost-saving options, compare quotes from different service providers, and secure the best deals. This also provides ample time to organise and execute each phase of the move systematically.
Declutter Before Moving
Before packing a single box, take the opportunity to declutter your home. Donate, sell, or discard items you no longer need. Not only does this reduce the volume of things to move, but it can also result in lower transportation costs and less time spent packing and unpacking. We can help with the delivery of those items to donate to charity stores for you, in most cases.
Purchase Packing Supplies From Us Or Use Free Packing Materials
Packing materials can add up in cost, but there are ways to minimise this expense. Grocery stores and retail outlets often have sturdy boxes available, and you can repurpose newspapers and clothes to protect fragile items. Ensure the boxes are strong and free from damage. It helps if they are all uniform in size also, for ease of stacking into the moving truck. You can also consider buying our comprehensive range of packing supplies.
Handle Packing Yourself
- While hiring professional packers can save time, doing the packing yourself can significantly cut costs. Start packing well in advance, room by room, to avoid last-minute stress. Properly label your boxes to simplify the unpacking process, and consider using household items like towels and blankets as extra padding.
Don’t Hesitate To Hire A Full-Service Company
Hiring a moving company can sometimes be the most economical option. Professional full-service movers bring efficiency, expertise, and the necessary equipment to handle the move. This not only saves you time but can also prevent potential damages, reducing overall costs in the long run.
