Cheap Removalists Melbourne Moving Tips That Will Make Your Life So Much Easier Part-3
Hi, friends. I am back with the part-3 of the series “Cheap Removalists Melbourne: Moving Tips That Will Make Your Life So Much Easier.” In the last article, I stopped with tip 7. So, I am starting with tip 8.
8) Packing your plates safely:
Packing your plates/dishes safely is a challenge. They are fragile, made out of glass/porcelain, and very heavy as well. You can’t overload them in boxes and carry, so make sure you fill the boxes with the plates in proper amounts. I have written many articles about house moving, and in each article – I explain the importance of hiring Cheap Removalist Melbourne for a safe move.
I have seen how the professionals pack plates in boxes safely. So, I am sharing this tip with you. Well, we usually pack the plates in boxes horizontally, right? No, it’s wrong. You should pack your plates vertically to prevent damaging. Use bubble wraps or materials you already have in your home as padding in ample amounts. OK, if you have any antique plates/dishes/mugs/glasses, be sensible to leave them to the professionals to transport for you safely. I have a very bad experience on damaging antique glassware when I tried the DIY method. It was a good reason for me to never think of DIY moving ever again. Just remember to use big boxes for heavy stuff and small boxes for light items. Well, I say it for a reason. People tend to fill boxes with heavy items to the point where even the Cheap Removalists Melbourne staff finds it difficult to carry.
9) Packing your jewelry:
OK, some items are there that you can’t let the movers transport for you. Important documents, jewelry, money, and so on. You may have jewelry that worth less than gold. Wrap them in thin plastic film separately. OK, you can use clothing for this purpose, but you can’t see the jewelry when you wrap in clothing so. Take them with you in your handbag.
10) Using a roll of stretch wrap:
Well, I came across this point on many moving tips articles. It’s a good tip, but make sure you don’t group heavy items as it will make carrying difficult. Anyway, you can use it for protecting your furniture from scuffs and scratches.
Here I am coming to an important point. It’s about transporting your priceless antique furniture. Well, this is my opinion: “transporting antique furniture yourself safely is nearly impossible.” A single scratch would diminish its “priceless value “ to zero value. I have written many articles on transporting antique furniture safely. It’s a different chapter. All I can say is, “if you have antique furniture to transport, hire a reputable Cheap Removalists Melbourne.”
11) Keeping your small parts at one place:
You will find many small, but important parts when you start packing. Nuts/bolts, hooks, curtain rods, and so on. Keeping these items in one place is the challenge. OK, you have a solution. All you need is undamaged sandwich bags. Pack these small items in sandwich bags separately according to your preference. Pack all these bags in a box with clear instructions. Tell the Cheap Removalists Melbourne staff to load it into the truck at last so you can find it easily in the new home.
OK, friends. I am stopping this article at this point. See you back with part-4 of the series. Hope you are enjoying the series.
