Moving Hints




  • Moving Day Check List

    1. A check list will ease your job and minimize stress.


    2. Take the trash out when you finish cleaning.


    3. Close the water and gas mains. Turn off the heating.


    4. Think about and make a list of the things you may need in the first few days after you move such as clothes, personal care products, shampoo, soap etc.


    5. If you are alone, inform a friend or relative about what you are going to do and where you will be on that day.


    6. Always keep a list of the contents of each box with you. Give a copy to the authorized personnel of the removers. Make sure the unloading order of each box is included on the list.


    7. Make a list of the things that you will not hand over to the removers and make sure that you keep them in a separate place so that they are not given to the removers by mistake.


    8. Once the truck is loaded, walk around each room and make sure that everything has been removed.


    9. Note the name and cell phone number of the truck driver and learn the route it will follow.


    10. Make sure that all the necessary arrangements are made so that the truck can easily find a suitable parking space.


    11. You must arrive at the new house before the truck and be there to meet it.

  • Hints on Cleaning the New House

    1. Even if you hire someone to clean the new place, you should make sure that cleaning is done according to the checklist below so that it is effective.


    2. You must not leave the cleaning till moving day.


    3. You will need to take the following cleaning supplies to the new place, not packed in boxes, and you should finish cleaning at least one day before you move.


    3.1. The cleaning supplies you will need are as follows:


    3.2. Quite a lot of cloth. You can use your old t-shirts.


    3.3. An old toothbrush.


    3.4. A washing or toilet brush.


    3.5. Sponge with rough side for tough surfaces.


    3.6. Washing gloves.


    3.7. A brush and dustpan.


    3.8. A mop.


    3.9. A vacuum cleaner.


    3.10. Bleach.


    3.11. Liquid cleaner for tough surfaces.


    3.12. A small jam box (optional but highly recommended).


     


    4. Start with the room furthest from the entrance and do not leave before the room is cleaned. Once the room is cleaned close the door.


    5. Apart from the bedrooms, do not clean any floors, and don’t clean the bathroom. You will use the bathroom and the corridor all the time to get water and they will get dirty, so you will just end up cleaning them over and over again.


    6. Clean from the top down.


    7. If there are stains or unwelcome smells on the carpet sprinkle some baking soda on it and wait for 15 minutes. Then vacuum the carpet and you will see that the stains and smell are gone.


    8. Cupboards and Wardrobes. Dampen a clean cloth with hot water and clean the insides of the cupboards and wardrobes. Then wipe it with a paper towel.


    9. Bathrooms. Since you don’t know how it was used before, you must disinfect the bathroom a couple times with bleach.


    10. If there are house appliances such as fridge, oven etc. in the new house, again clean them with a wet cloth without detergent and then dry them. But use bleach on the sink.

  • Choosing a removal firm and using them

    How to choose the correct removers and get the best out of them:


    1. Start early. Start choosing the removers at least 8 weeks before you move, and make sure you have made your choice 5 weeks in advance.


    2. One crucial point to pay attention to when moving is to specify on the contract that it is the removers’ responsibility to get all the required permits for inter and intra city carriers.


    3. Discuss in advance everything you have that needs extra attention while moving, such as piano, large crystal chandelier etc. Ask if they normally carry similar items and what kind of systems and equipment they use for carrying them.


    4. Get proposals from a few different firms. The best way to make the correct choice is to compare the proposals of a few different firms. It is vital that an authorized person sees the things to be moved when offering the proposal. Make sure that their visit to inspect is free of charge. Don’t forget that if you do not sign the contract at the given price, then during the move, it may increase in comparison with the initial proposal for a variety of reasons.


    5. While comparing proposals by different firms be aware that the cheapest offer may not always be the firm with the best service. If a firm’s offer is lower than the competition, investigate the reason. Are the services offered by each firm and their experience the same? Are the prices fixed?


    6. In order to keep prices at reasonable levels, or pull them down, remove unnecessary items or things that are hard to carry from your list. For example if your fridge or washing machine is old and you are thinking about replacing them, then maybe now is the time. Try to eliminate things such as small motorbikes, boats etc. that are too big and hard to carry.


    7. Make sure you carefully analyze the contract that you sign with the removers. Make sure you include in the contract that any damage to your goods will be the carrier’s responsibility.


    8. Make a list of the items that are to be moved and stick a list to each box labeling its contents. Number the boxes and sum the total number of boxes in your list before they are loaded.


    9. When the goods arrive at the new home make sure you first open boxes containing valuables, such as silver, crystal etc.

  • Things To Pay Attention to While Packing

    1. Whether you do the packing yourself or the removers do it for you, there are a few points you should attend to:


    1.1. Do not put heavy things in big boxes.


    1.2. Wrap breakables such as mirrors, vases, and glasses with bubble wrap.


    1.3. Mark all boxes containing breakables with a red sticker that reads “Fragile”.


    1.4. Put glasses and porcelain plates in stronger boxes. Pack plates vertically; do not stack them up.


    2. Packing Material :


    2.1. If you are doing the packing yourself, you must prepare the packing material in advance.


    2.2. Collect lots of boxes in various sizes.


    2.3. For smaller things clear bags may be more suitable; this way you can see the contents without having to open them.


    2.4. You will need to get a box with hangers for clothes such as suits that should not get wrinkled.


    2.5. You will need a large amount of duct tape.


    2.6. You should have markers and paper to write on the boxes. You can stick these papers on the boxes using duct tape.


    2.7. Have old newspapers ready to fill in the empty spaces between fragile items in the boxes. If you don’t fill these spaces, the items in the boxes can move around and break.


    3. Start packing a week before moving day, and pack everything room by room so you can pack in order without tiring yourself too much.


    4. Load the heavy things first.


    5. Put your clothes in plastic bags to protect them against dust and moisture.

  • Last 11 things to pack

    Things you may need during the move.


    1. Cables, batteries. Nowadays almost everything we use is electronic. Computers, CD players, iron, TV etc. If you pack the cables and batteries of such household items in the same place, and last, you can easily find them and open them once you move.


    2. Tools. Hammer, flat and philips screwdrivers, nails, sticky tape, duct tape and measuring tape.


    3. Water bottles and glasses. During the move you’re going to get thirsty and you should have a bottle by your side when you do.


    4. Snacks, sandwich. You won’t have a chance to prepare a meal while moving, so you should prepare snacks or sandwiches beforehand.


    5. Important phone numbers. During the move, keep the numbers you may need, such as the removers, landlord or the building attendant, by your side.


    6. Sufficient cash. Unexpected costs always crop up when moving and you may not be able to pay them by credit card.


    7. Cleaning materials. Especially hand soap and toilet paper.


    8. Flashlight or torch. It may be dark by the time you arrive at the new house. There might be an electrical problem or there could be problems in some rooms in the new house.


    9. Alarm clock. You don’t want the children to be late for school the day after you move.


    10. Medication. Pack your daily medications at the very end and at the top of the box.


    11. Utility knife or scissors. Don’t even pack these. Just carry them with you because you will need to use them the moment you arrive at the new house to open the boxes
