Furniture Movers Melbourne: Most difficult things to move
OK, here’s the final part of the series “Furniture Movers Melbourne: Most difficult things to move.” Let’s get to business straight away.
Moving fragile items: Every home has many fragile items. Well, moving glassware is not that difficult. The challenge is packing them safely. I have written many articles why DIY moving is not safe. Here’s a top reason for that. We must leave fragile items packing and transport to the professionals. If not properly packed, you would find a box of glass pieces when you open the boxes in the new home. Furniture Movers Melbourne professionals use ample of quality materials when packing glassware and fragile items. Unpacking fragile items also needs extra care.
How about the electronics? It’s similar to moving glassware and fragile items. Right packing technique is the key to protecting the electronics. That’s why I say not to throw the original boxes of the electronics. OK, you threw the original box on the first day. What to do now? Don’t use big boxes for electronics. Make sure you protect the screen with a towel or soft cardboard. You can take your LCD TV in your car wrapped in thick blankets. Furniture Movers Melbourne staff give a special place in the truck for the electronics. They don’t put anything above the boxes that electronics are there.
Art/painting: Do you know the price of the most expensive painting in the world? In September 2015, the painting “Interchange (de Kooning)” by the painter Willem de Kooning was sold out for $300 million. Can you put a price for the painting in your home? No, right? I mean, It’s difficult to put a price on a painting as it has a sentimental value. It’s like moving antiques. Don’t do it yourself, leave it to the Furniture Mover Melbourne professionals.
Vehicles: OK, when you are moving into a new home in the next town or in a different state; simply drive it. Let’s imagine you are moving overseas from Melbourne to London. Then, you have to contact a shipping company. The hardest part is preparing the document. You have to reregister your car, change the addresses, get a new license, and so on. Paperwork part is time-consuming and boring.
Weapons: Well, if you have any weapons (pistols and guns,) wrap them safely. You may come across legal restrictions in this case, though. It depends on your final destination. You will have to take special permit or pay extra money to receive the right to carry them. Anyway, many Hazardous items are there that Furniture Movers Melbourne won’t transport for you. Flammable substances, explosives, ammunition, paints and cleaning agents. Some movers don’t transport alcohol in large quantities.
Sports equipment and musical instruments are in the same category (Difficult to move.) Moving a guitar is not a big deal, but how about moving a grand piano and a drum set? A big piano can weigh up to 600kgs. A drum set is oddly-shaped. That’ not all, think of your home gym. Gym machines are very heavy and oddly-shaped pieces, so getting professional service is a must. Some gym equipment needs dismantling before transport, and it needs experienced hands.
Summary: That’s it. I hope my list of difficult items to move was a complete list. Sorry if I missed something. Hope you enjoyed the series.
