Post 83 of 120

Starting a new life in a brand new city really is an exciting thought. What is less pleasing, however, is doing all the hard work and actually moving all your belongings to your new home. Quite frankly, your plan is simple. You have to pick up the phone, call one of the removals companies and book an appointment. Still, whatever your decision might be in terms of companies, you might want to know how your valuable items and appliances will be packed. This way, you will make sure that the team you have hired does a good job. If you have hired an Alton or Fleet removals company, then make sure that the staff working there follows a few simple rules when it comes to packing your belongings, especially your kitchen appliances.


Adequately packing appliances


The goal of any move should be to get your things to the new location without harming them in any way. This means that not even a scratch is admitted. The first rule in any appliance transport is wrapping them in towels or newspapers just to make sure that they cannot be scratched. Once this step is completed what follows is placing the appliances in heavy- duty boxes. You will be transporting the dishwasher or the microwave oven. Also, disconnecting some of kitchen appliances, like the dishwasher, might require the help of a plumber. Perhaps, there is such a specialist in the team of movers you have hired. Furthermore, another important rule removal companies have to be aware of is that all kitchen appliances should be placed upright throughout the actual transport.


Taking care of all glass components


Perhaps your over has a glass door or the refrigerator has glass shelves. When packing appliances, all glass components should be properly taken care of. No matter how well the package has been wrapped, these could get broken, which is why you should pack all glass components separately, perhaps wrap them in paper to make sure they will not get broken at any point throughout the transport. You could do the same with other components that can be detached from appliances, this way avoiding damages of any type.


Transporting appliances to a new location could be a bit more difficult than you would imagine. Not only are these heavy and you need a lot of strength to transport them, but there are a few packing rules that should be followed. All clients are concerned about their kitchen appliances simply because these cost a lot money. Thus, the team of movers has to make sure that no harm will come to them and that the transport is successfully completed. Now that you know how appliances should be packed, you can check to see if the team you have hired has done a good job or not. Sometimes, just because you have contracted a company to handle the move does not mean that you can’t get involved. In fact, it is recommend to supervise and see what the movers are doing.
