Furniture Movers Melbourne: Most difficult things to move
Here’s the first part of a series. In this series, I am highlighting things that are difficult to move even by professional movers. Hope you will enjoy the series. I am giving you tips and advice on moving “difficult items.”
Yes, you are moving into a new home next month. You are happy and stressed at the same time. OK, you may be sad about leaving your old life. You are used to that life for years, but the time is forcing you to find a new life. What to do? You must face it. People have different stories right. I have written many articles about the advantages hiring Furniture Movers Melbourne and why DIY moving is not your best friend. Well, this article is different. Movers can literary move anything, that’s what they say. Anyway, some things that are too difficult to move exists (even for professional movers.)
We can categories these items according to their status.
* Living beings: Let’s consider a hamster. How much would the hamster weigh? Will assume it 1kg. It’s not the weight that makes moving a hamster difficult, but the fact that it’s a living being. Interstate relocation takes days to complete. So, you must make sure your hamster survives the journey.
* Fragile items: These items are hard, but they shatter into pieces easily.
* Heavy/bulky items: Items that are too bulky and heavy always give a hard time for the house owners.
* Hazardous items: Flammable liquids, ammunition, alcohol, and so on.
* Antiques: Items that have a sentimental value need extra care when handling.
OK, now let’s go into the very deeps. I am explaining each item that is difficult to move in depth detail.
Plants: You love your plants, right? You can handover the job to Furniture Movers Melbourne staff, but I suggest that you do it yourself. Well, plants are living things, so you need to handle them with love and care. If you are moving into a town just 10 km away, you can put them in boxes and give to the movers. But how about an interstate move? Will your plants survive in the truck for 2-3 days? Oh, first make sure you don’t have any legal barriers to import plants from a different state. See how I moved my plants.
* Early preparation is the key. Heavy clay pots are difficult to carry yourself. So, repot the plants in plastic pots weeks before a moving day. You can decide what you are going to do for the heavy clay pots.
* Remove dead leaves and branches. No weeds and pests on plants and pots. A healthy plant can survive long. Spray the plants.
* Use cardboard boxes for plant transport. Make holes on boxes so the plants can breathe. Use padding inside to prevent plants moving everywhere inside the boxes. Don’t put anything on top of the boxes that plants are packed. Immediately after you reach your new home, unpack the boxes and take the plants out. Keep them under the sun, water them accordingly, and add plant foods. OK, keep the plants in the plastic pots for a few weeks. Well, if the new environment doesn’t suit the plants, they would probably die, and there’s nothing much you can do about it.
OK, I will see you again with part-2.
