Shifting to a new place can be very stressful because there is an immense fear of the unknown in relocating family members. There are loads of memories that are left behind and people are often skeptical, adventuring into unseen and unknown zones. Fear of shifting to a new house, making new acquaintances, changing schools, may leave the family excited or petrified. This “scared feeling” needs to be controlled and people need to accept the change as a pleasant challenge.
Why don’t you start the relocation with a wonderful moving experience through assistance of specialized movers? The moving company has the expertise to pack each precious item of your home carefully and stack it with care to deliver it to the destination, safe and sound.
You can set up your new home in the new locale, in the same way as your old home. Do not worry professional movers will help you cope up with your irrational and rational “moving fears” in a positive manner. Common worries that bother during a relocation are:
Damaged household items:
Prized possessions can be damaged beyond repair because of carelessness of untrained moving companies. This is a common worry of most people because they fear breakage, irreparable damage and losing their precious memories. You can handle this by assisting the company in proper labelling of boxes. Boxes carrying delicate items like breakable glassware, rare paintings, fine china and electronics need to be packed and labelled separately. These items need to be wrapped in thick layers of padding, wrap, or bubble wrap and then stacked in sturdy strong boxes or crates, so that they stay safe during transit.
Will the packing company have reasonable rates?
There are loads of companies in the market who do not do clean business. People are misled, and fraudulent deals are often signed in ignorance. Search online for such incidents and you will find many, so stay vigilant in your search for a well-established packing and moving company. You can ask for quotations from more than one company and compare rates according to:
Packing and unpacking assistance
Cost according to items being shifted
Distance to destination (per kilometer or mile)
Specialty products that need to be packed according to their fragility status
Storage and carriage etc.
Too low rates? Beware!
Don’t get carried away by very low rates. These costs are not possible in complicated transfers. Compare rates and take estimates and then after reading about testimonials, and online reviews of the company make your decision. Go for a moving company with experience because they will make sure they transport your precious stuff with great care and that too in time.
A company taking ages to pack and reach the destination can add to the stress
quotient of the family. You need a disciplined organization that does not believe in procrastinating packing and moving. There are dates that are fixed for reaching the new locale and the works must be completed within the time frame fixed.
To make sure each moment is planned according to schedule; packing organizations offer a complete package that includes packing and unpacking of items, storage and moving transportation of all your items.
Reputed companies are very careful about completing their projects on time and do not put off essential projects at their whim and fancy. Check out the outline plan for the transfer made by the company and then fix the deal. You can cross check the movements of the packing professionals by taking a quotation from online guides.
Your new home and its dimensions:
The interior shape and dimensions of the new home is not going to be the same as your past one. The home in the new locale may be gorgeous and elegant but these dimension differences may create some “furniture trouble”.
Your dining room may seem cramped and the sofa may loom large in the living room, but you will surely adjust to these issues with time. Your household products need to be delivered and placed in proper place safely, that is priority. Carrying heavy furniture items through tight areas can damage them.
