When you think of moving do you also think of stress, hard-work and mess? Well, we’ve got good news for you! Moving house really doesn’t have to be like that, if you’re smart about it. If you’re looking for Sheffield removals, read on – here are some tips on how to help make sure that moving home for you is as stress-free as possible.
First things first – call a highly rated removals company
The first thing you’ll need to do is get a good-quality and value-for-money removals company. Don’t just Google ‘removals company near me‘, look for a well-established and well rated company like Acorn Removals in Sheffield. But what does my removals company need to know when I call? You’ll need to give them a rough idea of what you need to move. For example, which pieces of furniture, are coming and how many CDs or books (converted into cartons) are worth keeping. It can be estimated that for an average 2-bedroom room flat, approximately 20 boxes (roughly 55cm x 35cm x 35cm) will be needed. This is important not only when packing (as it will be the the number of boxes you’ll need), but it will also help give your removals company an idea about how much there is to move. Acorn removals also supply all the boxes, bubble wrap, tape and other packing materials you might need.
How to pack ?
Large furniture must be carefully secured: close the drawers (those that cannot be locked, can be sealed with tape), stick the keys to the correct furniture, remove all moving parts, e.g. glass shelves.
Books and CDs should be packed in moderation. Pack too much, and the cardboard box may tear. Electronic equipment and glass , e.g. dishes, must be additionally secured with bubble wrap and void fill. Cardboard with such items must also be marked, e.g. “Attention glass!” or “Gentle!” This is so that Sheffield removals knows to take care with such items. Pack the glass, porcelain, etc. separately. It’s best to wrap these things in bubble wrap or wrapping paper / newspapers.
Household appliances such as refrigerators or freezers must be thawed, and all doors secured.
Plants are best transported in specially marked boxes with holes so that the flowers have something to breathe. Thanks to the marking, the Sheffield removals company will take extra precautions.
