Let’s discuss the Top most common moving mistakes with Cheap Movers Melbourne
Everybody moves in their lifetime at least one time. I recently came across an article, which says the average number of times the Americans move in a lifetime. Well, it’s a staggering number (11.) The Australians also move frequently as well as the Americans. Anyway, no matter how many times they move in a lifetime; people make mistakes during a house moving process. Cheap Movers Melbourne are here to help you in avoiding these common mistakes, so you can avoid moving disasters in the future.
1) Not researching moving companies:
It’s the most common mistake people make when choosing the professionals for their house move. The majority of the customers who are hunting for a mover only consider the price tag. Apart from the price tag, many things are there to consider such as the experience, licenses, insurance/liability coverage, customer reviews, and recommendations from trustworthy sources.
2) Buying all the packing supplies:
Well, it’s true that Cheap Movers Melbourne advise the clients to use proper packing supplies for fragile and valuable items. Anyway, many free resources are there in your home to use for packing general stuff. You don’t have to buy specially designed boxes to pack your clothes, right?
3) Forgetting to take the critical dimensions:
How many times have you moved so far? Did you ever take a measuring tape to measure the doorway of the house you were inspecting? Most of the clients forget this important step when inspecting the new house. What would happen if your new home’s doorway is too narrow for your expensive, oversized sofa? OK, Cheap Movers Melbourne experts may have a solution. Anyway, don’t forget to measure the doorway of the house you are considering.
4) Poor packing techniques:
You may have ended up with boxes full of broken items at least one time you moved (you didn’t hire Cheap Movers Melbourne.) Also, some items are there that you should never pack and transport in the back of a truck. Corrosive and flammable materials/liquids. The movers don’t transport these items anyway for their clients. Why do you want to take a deadly risk? Just throw them.
5) Not treating the movers kindly:
Cheap Movers Melbourne move hundreds of houses a year, and our staff complains about some very rude customers. Even though that number is small, still such customers exist. A message to all the customers “if you treat someone right, you will get the same return and the vice-versa.” The movers are very hard workers, so please, give them some snacks and cold water bottles.
6) Forgetting to change the addresses:
Well, people remember to publish about the move on Facebook, but they forget to change the address formally. Not changing the address can have serious consequences such as unpaid bills and missing important letters.
7) Using wrong boxes for packing (the right size.):
For the sake of reducing the number of boxes, some customers take 4-5 extra large boxes and pack the whole house in them. Well, you can’t lift such heavy boxes (not even the Cheap Movers Melbourne muscled men.) Get the right sized boxes and label effectively. Big boxes for lighter items and small boxes for your heavy household goods.
The above are the most common mistakes our customers make, no matter the number of times they have moved. Avoiding these mistakes would let the Cheap Movers Melbourne give you a wonderful moving experience.
