A quick formula for big heavy home removals
The big home removals are usually the heaviest ones too, but with a few simple tricks and formulas, you can move them like in a game. Just follow the steps from the next list or make your own list in advance and when the moving van arrives at your new home, you will know exactly what to do first, second, etc.
For example, one of the first things to do when planning a big moving house trip is the organization. It comes not only to the organization of the boxes and the wrappings of your belongings, neither only the organization with the moving company, nor the selection of the right moving van`s volume. It`s also important to organize in advance the move of your objects in the new house. Call the strongest family members or friends to help with the heavy lifting at the moving day. You will probably more exhausted when you arrive in front the new home, but yet the long unloading and unboxing procedures can be done. It would be quite easier if you supervise the procedures while a professional crew move the big objects as well. That`s why another great opt is to call a professional moving company or a man with a van service. According to the size and volume of your belongings – you may need a bigger van or even a truck hire, as well as two, three or more men in the crew. It`s very essential to coordinate the moving of the objects and to keep everything in order, so, take your free time to think in advance about the size of your belongings, their weight, which size of the moving boxes are more appropriate, the type of the moving van… Or else, just a couple of friends might be enough to help you with the unloading of the nearly a dozen moving boxes.
Another quick formula is to move the biggest and heaviest home furnishings not by lifting them, but via gliding blankets. Yes, just with a little bit of a help, lift the edge of the giant wardrobe, for example, and put underneath it a blanket bent in two to ensure a greater thickness and easier glide. Then, lift all the edges of the giant wardrobe one by one and repeat the procedure until the entire bottom of the wardrobe sits over the floor, but with the blanket in between. It would be quite easier to glide the giant wardrobe to its place or nearby, instead of using three or more helpers for the heavy lifting. Yet the gliding blankets protect the floors and the chance of scratches reduces to minimum if carefully supervised. This quick simple trick saves time and troubles when dismantling and assembling the big furnishings.
Make a floor plan of your new home with every room, every distance or important places for the move. It comes to a floor plan with the distance from the front door to the place of the sofa, for example, or the distance between the front door and the stairways. Note all other imperfections on the terrain like bumps and bigger door thresholds. If the home is already furnished – note the floor coverings like carpets, rugs, tiles or maybe it`s a laminate floor. This can help you with an easier arrangement of the objects when you know all the sizes and dimensions of the rooms. Not to mention that if you move the house via man and van, the man can help you with the heavy lifting and to put the big boxes right on their places according to the floor plan.
