Shifting residences, even just within the country, can be potentially stressful. Yet, a well-qualified and well-experienced removal firm can alleviate your anxiety by enabling a seamless experience.

Before the big day, be sure to have all your personal belongings, important items like passports and legal documents, and items of value such as jewelry packed in a box which you will personally carry with you. The mover you choose are expected to do the following:

• Arrive on time, pack and label everything according to specific categories, e.g., fragile items, books, etc.

• Provide storage modules in various sizes, wardrobe boxes for hanging clothes, bubble wraps for securing fragile items, packing tapes and packing paper. Also provide cooler boxes for frozen items

• Pack items per room to ensure they are kept together and to render the unpacking process easier

• Have the necessary tools and equipment to be able to dismantle and reassemble larger items

• Be equipped to drill curtain rods and work on electrical items

• Completely remove all or any leftover packing debris

• Ensure all items have been kept safe and secure along the way with zero damage

• Deliver to and unpack items safely in your new home

Handy Hints
• Hire a removal company with proven track record
• As removal firms can be busy, book well in advance
• Canvass several companies to get the best rates
