How To Prevent Property Damage When Moving House?
Moving day is an exhilarating blend of excitement and chaos. Amidst the frenzy of packing and ensuring everything goes smoothly, one of the primary concerns for most homeowners is potential damage to their property. As seasoned movers in Brisbane, we've seen it all and have a few tricks up our sleeve to ensure a damage-free move. Here's how:
1. Take Stock and Plan Ahead
Before you start, walk through your home. Identify narrow doorways, sharp turns, or tricky staircases. Knowing the potential trouble spots will help you maneuver more carefully.
2. Protect Your Floors
Use durable, non-slip runners or floor mats in high-traffic areas. For carpeted areas, consider using carpet shields. These steps can protect against scratches, dings, or any unwanted dirt.
3. Cover Your Walls
Apply wall protectors, like temporary corner guards, to shield against potential dings or scratches as furniture is moved around corners and through hallways.
4. Mind Your Doors
Doorway jamb protectors or foam door covers can be lifesavers, especially when handling bulky furniture. Additionally, removing doors can provide extra space and prevent damage.
5. Use the Right Equipment
Having the right tools can make all the difference:
- Furniture Dollies: Easily transport heavy items without scratching the floor.
- Moving Blankets/Pads: Wrap furniture or other large items to avoid dings and scratches.
- Lifting Straps: They distribute weight evenly and reduce the chance of dropping items.
6. Pack Smart
Ensure your boxes aren’t too heavy. Overloaded boxes can break, leading to potential damage to the items inside or to the property if they're dropped.
7. Hire Professionals
It might sound self-serving, but honestly, professional movers in Brisbane like OzWide Movers have the experience, equipment, and know-how to move your belongings safely and efficiently.
8. Move Plants Carefully
Avoid water damage by ensuring plant pots are drained a day before moving. Wrap the base with plastic during transport.
Taking precautions is key to a successful, damage-free move. And remember, while DIY might save some pennies, nothing can replace the assurance and efficiency provided by professional movers in Brisbane.
