Get help moving out with a small removals team
Moving out of one’s home and into another is quite an adventure and a milestone in your life. It is usually a turning point from being reliant on your parents to being independent, much like when you move into a dorm room because you’re in college now. It could also be a sign that you’re moving up in life so you have to move out of your parents’ garage and into your own apartment. For such a significant move, but with only a few pieces of personal belongings, you need only hire a small removals team to do the job. Alternatively, if you have a large removal, we suggest finding a removal company and read reviews , such as Movecorp removals reviews.
A small removals team is the perfect partner when you’re moving a small group of personal belongings. You can save money by hiring a small removals team instead of going for the major moving companies that are mostly utilized for moving houses and all that’s inside them. How do you know that you need a small removals team if you don’t have any idea how to pack your items for moving or if this is the first time you’re ever going to move?
Usually, most small removals companies provide a guide on the size of their vans so that you can estimate if your belongings, when packed, can fit in one of their vehicles. Sometimes, they already provide an estimate of how much their vehicles can carry based on the size of the room that you’re supposed to be packing. Granted that these figures are estimates and it will have to depend on just how much furniture you were able to cram into your room or apartment.
When you’re packing, there are some basic rules that you should follow to avoid paying extra labor or service to your small removals team. For instance, any furniture that you have that can be disassembled, you may want to do it yourself and pack it in their own boxes, with the screws and joints together in a plastic so that packing them and putting them back together won’t be a pain. If you don’t do this, you may end up paying for the small removals guy to do it for you and it will even take longer and end up delaying your schedule.
To make it easier for the small removals team to come and pack your stuff away into their vans, make sure that your boxes are secure. Don’t overload them either because if the removals man can’t move them by himself, you will end up helping him with it. Keep the hallways and other entryways clear to facilitate the ease of moving the boxes and other stuff. Make sure that the small removals van can be parked right outside your apartment or home so that once the small removals guy starts to load the van, it will only be a short distance and the job can be accomplished smoothly and fast.
Lastly, it’s important to follow the small removals instructions when putting your packages in the van. Awkward items need to go in first. These are the furniture that you can’t put in boxes but may be in danger of falling off, like mirrors, lamps and ironing boards. Next come the boxes, secured tight and proper. Last ones in but first ones out are the bags with your clothes and other luggage.
