Removalists Melbourne: Definite actions to take before moving in
People are stressed, excited, happy, and sad when facing a house move. Well, when we are stressed out of something; we tend to do crazy things like forgetting important actions, and so on (also when we are excited.) As you already know, house moving is one of the most stressful events in your life, so we tend to go crazy. Removalists Melbourne would like to give all our customers (whether you hire us or not) some tips on important actions to take before moving into a new home for a positive experience.
* Taking critical measurements:
OK, as a writer for Removalists Melbourne, recently I wrote an article about the importance of taking the measurements of your house before moving in. The doorway in your current home would never be the same as the new home (let’s assume for extra safety.) Measure the staircases, doorways, hallways, and the elevators. Letting Removalists Melbourne know about any measurements differences in advance would give them a chance to prepare themselves well for hoisting.
* Comparing Removalists Melbourne:
It’s not about hiring the best or the number 1 moving company. It’s all about hiring the right moving company for your relocation. Compare the movers for their: online reputation, years in the industry, insurance/liability coverage, approvals/licenses, and of course; the price. Finding the right Removalists Melbourne is something too important to get wrong. Take your time, no need to rush.
OK, if you don’t get the keys until the day of moving, you can’t do it. Anyway, you can talk with the landlord and convince him to give the keys for the cleaning day (only if your landlord is a friendly fellow.) If your landlord is someone who is very fussy about the lease, law, and dates; forget it.
* Changing the addresses:
People tend to forget this important action under horrendous moving pressure. Do it like a week before as it a can take a few days to get your address updated (for the mail.) If you wait until the last minute to do it, you will miss important letters for at least a few days. Removalists Melbourne advises all the customers to change the addresses (especially, for interstate moves) in advance, if not you will have to travel miles to get your important letters and notices back to you.
* Change the locks:
It’s for you moving into rented properties. As you already know, the landlords have two sets of keys for each spare homes they own. So, changing the locks after you purchase a house is a must.
* Know where the main circuit breaker/water:
Don’t wait until you stumble in the dark to find the home’s main power breaker. Also, know where the main water shut-off valve is. Removalists Melbourne golden tip: Make sure the smoke detector in your house works well and know where the fire extinguisher is.
* A first Aid kit:
You may have come across articles related to house moving injuries. While you try your best to prevent injuries (including the Removalists Melbourne staff,) accidents do happen. Have a first aid box ready as an early preparation (especially, if you are DIY the house move.) Also, make sure you keep your mobile phone on at all times (watch its battery level too.)
Some final words by Removalists Melbourne experts:
Don’t forget to be with you family during this hard time. Give priority to your family more than anything else.
