After you’ve found your new home, forked out for a security or mortgage deposit on it, and found someone else to take your old one (if you’re a home owner) then it’s time to consider how you are going pack all your possessions and then transport them from your soon-to-be old residence to your new one. As packing goes, you can either do it yourself by sourcing all the packing materials you’ll need personally, or you could hire a Chelsea packing service that will come into your home armed with packing materials and take care of it all for you. And this is the same when it comes to moving all of your furniture – you can either do it yourself or hire professionals to do it for you. If you are working to a tight budget, then it’s probably best to do it yourself as hiring professional furniture removals can be somewhat pricey. If you decide to do it yourself, here are the essential items you’ll need to carry out furniture removals yourself.
1) Brute Strength
To carry out furniture removals yourself, you will need to sport some degree of strength. Moving wardrobes, bed-frames, mattresses, sofas, tables and other heavy items can simply not be done if you have trouble lifting much lighter things. If you don’t think you can do it yourself, you’ll need to hire a professional SW3 removal service, or at the very least entice some friends to do it for you.
Regardless of whether you are strong enough or not, you’re going to need a helping hand. Most furniture items are too big, bulky, and heavy to carry by yourself. Imagine trying to get a sofa outside to the pavement by yourself. That’s right; you can’t because such a task is impossible. Don’t take it as an insult to your muscles, but you will need help no matter how strong you are.
3) Removal blankets
Removal blankets can be bought from any good hardware store. The reason why there so essential is because they will protect your furniture from superficial damage that could be caused on the way. Scrapes, bumps, dents – all of these can be avoided with the use of removal blankets.
4) Many screw drivers and Allen Keys
Most pieces of furniture will be on some sort of legs. Wardrobes, sofas, etc. will all be supported by some sort of short legs, consisting of only an inch or two long. These will come off with the use of screw drivers or Allen keys. Taking them off will shrink he dimensions of the sofa, making it easier to navigate through narrow corridors and door frames. Although an inch doesn’t sound like a lot, sometimes an inch makes all the difference.
5) A suitably sized vehicle for transport
To move your furniture to your new home from your old one you will, needless to say, require some sort of vehicle in order to transport them. If you hire a removal company, then ignore all of the advice above because they will take care of your transport needs for you. But if you haven’t, then you will need to look into either hiring a SW3 Man and Van service or hiring out a vehicle for you to load up and drive yourself. Whatever service you pick, be sure to choose a vehicle that is suitably big enough. You don’t want to have to make numerous trips back and forth between your old and new home because you’ve hired a van that can only transport one piece of furniture at a time, this will just end up costing you more.
