11Nov 2014

The house removals in London give that charm of the always moving and bustling city, especially during the warmer summer months. The modern yet tranquil outskirts become a truly irresistible place to move with the family and the kids, as well as drink coffee or tea with the neighbors while watching the kids playing around. However, before all that awaits you in your new house, there is the long and exhausting journey of the moving house itself. From the choice of removal companies in London to the type of the moving van and the compilation of the inventory checklist - this moving journey is a real journey. There is another important thing before the move - the long and the so important packing procedures, which definitely require a lot of free time and a strict organization to keep everything in the right place.Via professional help from movers and packaging teams, you can always take advantage of a fast and easy organization of your items, while ensuring the quality of the packing and the transportation of your belongings in the meantime. On the other hand, if you are doing the packing on your own - the moving company is not responsible for the damages of your boxes and a great advice is to handle only with the most important items.  In all cases - packing items before the move is a long and complex task so take your free time and don`t rush. Begin at least a couple of weeks before the move with the composition of the first moving checklist. It will help you to keep in order the small removals, as well as be sure that you don`t forget something. So, update it constantly until the moving day.When packing big or heavy items with the special teams from the moving company - just sort the items in different sections of the room. Make an inventory sheet in order while reviewing each item and let the packing team do the other more complex part. Here, a great advice is to have a wide adhesive tape and a marker, pencil or so. Label all the big boxes with easy to understand notes like "Heavy" or "Fragile". Then, name a relative column in your inventory list with these items. Other items can be "named" with some important notes like "Always on top" or "Prevent to leak" or "May crack". The orientation when packing with the movers will be quite easier while you will not have to remember any description by heart. An even better idea is to take photographic materials of the most precious items and the fragile ones. Thus, you can easily prove the condition of the item before the move, in case of cracking or malfunctioning after the move.In all cases, first decide the exact amount and type of the items, and then choose the appropriate packaging materials. Except for the right match of the sizes of the boxes, they should be associated with the arrangement in the moving van. The tight and compact packaging will prevent the boxes from any free move or roll on the sharp turns, as well as from crashing against each other. When moving with a van, the heavy items should be on the bottom, while the lightest on the top. Because of that, consider to use more rigid and stronger card boxes if the heavy items are more than the lighter ones.When moving furniture and fragile objects - repeat again the checklist a few days before the move and review all the packed boxes as much as possible. Take good care about these objects. There are numerous safety measures such as edge protectors, transparent carrier bags or super strong wrapping tape with different colors.
