Moving can be a hassle. It’s difficult, arduous and leaves most people feeling frustrated and fed-up with the whole process by the time it’s over. This can be because most movers are inexperienced, and aren’t employing the best practices when it comes to getting their things to their new home.
There are some mistakes that Hammer’s Moving & Storage, a trusted moving company in Doylestown, PA, see time and time again by movers working without the professionals. Are you making one of these common moving mistakes?
Rushing the process. Are you trying to get out of your home as soon as possible? While we understand the excitement to get into your new home, rushing your moving process frequently leads to improper packing and chaos, meaning that you’re much more likely to open boxes full of broken dishes and unload furniture that has been damaged. Instead, taking time to plan out your move at least a month in advance will give you the time to make sure that everything is packed away correctly, as well as decrease your overall stress levels.
Putting furniture back together by yourself. It can be tough to find help when you’re moving. Even within your own home, the temptation to do all your reassembling can be huge. However, if you don’t have the right tools or knowledge to reassemble furniture properly, you are putting yourself at risk of damage or breakage. Calling a professional or taking the time to get the right tools before reassembling furniture can help you to avoid needing to purchase new furniture.
Lifting items that are too heavy for you. You might not see much danger in straining yourself to move a heavy couch or dresser, but overexerting yourself can be a hazard to your health. Every year, many movers find themselves suffering from hernias due to lifting items in their home that are just too heavy. Employing the service of movers in Doylestown, PA can help to save you from an expensive medical bill and a whole lot of stress.
