Tips To Move Heavy Items

Moving furniture and other items from one location to another can be quite a time-consuming and tedious task. This is especially the case if you have a large number of unwieldy and heavy items to move. If you try to move these heavy pieces of furniture yourself, you can end up injuring your back or even damaging the items. Sometimes, you may cause damage to the property you are moving the items through as well.

Only a professional removalist would be able to handle this job expertly, without causing any damage either to your items or the property. They have the experience and training required to handle these jobs well. Not only will they wrap, pack, haul and transport everything, but also make sure that all your heavy furniture is offloaded, unpacked and placed in the right places in the new property.

We at Infinite Removals have been operating in this space for a number of years and have vast experience with moving heavy furniture. The recommendation is that you always hire an experienced professional for the job. However, if you intend to handle this aspect of the move yourself here are some useful tips:

1. Use Furniture Blankets

It isn’t easy to haul and move very heavy furniture, and the best way to do it right is to wrap it up in thick furniture blankets. This provides proper grip and also helps protect the item from damage and scuffing. The thick blankets to provide adequate cushioning against any kind of damage and impact which reduces the chances of breakage, in case the piece happens to slip or bang into something.

2. Get a Good Grip

It can be quite difficult to lift heavy items even when you have a pretty strong hold on them. However, if you don’t find a good grip, you will find it is impossible to lift the piece. Assess the piece of furniture and identify exactly where you can place your hands and dig your fingers in a while lifting it. If you are hauling heavy furniture, consider wrapping it in a furniture blanket, as this will provide a good grip.

3. Use The Right Equipment

It’s far easier to move heavy furniture over a ramp, rather than navigate it over stairs. The heavy items can be lowered down the ramp safely and you don’t have to be worried about injuring your feet or banging into the balustrade.

4. Secure the Furniture Well

Once you haul the furniture into the truck or van, it is a good idea to secure them with strong straps. In fact, you can also use straps when you are moving to the items on trolleys.

5. Get Some Help

It’s not a good idea to try to move heavy furniture on your own. It’s better to get help from friends or family while do you are handling this job. The number of people you need to move the piece will be dependent on the shape, size, and weight of the object.

Tips To Get Your Move Right

Moving can be quite hectic, and there are a large number of things that you need to focus on. Ensuring that your move is as a stress-free and seamless as possible, is about hiring the right professionals for the job. However, there are also certain things you can do to ease the process. Here are some moving tips from the experts at Infinite Removals:

Before the Move…

  • When looking for a professional Removalist in Sydney, identify an experienced company like Infinite Removals. While we do provide affordable services, not all companies would be able to balance quality and cost. This is why it is important to be wary of extremely cheap offers.
  • When you’re asking for the quote, make sure it’s an all-inclusive or upfront one. There should be no hidden costs or fees that you need to pay at the end of the move.
  • Request the company to provide you referrals and make sure that you call some of the previous clients to get a better idea of all the services provided by the company.
  • It’s important to plan the move well in advance as this will help you keep things organised.
  • A local removal is generally carried out within a day, while a national move can easily take two to three days. This is something you need to keep in mind when you are planning your relocation.

DIY Packing Tips

  • Clean all the items before you pack and box them. This will save you a significant amount of time and trouble when you are settling into your new home.
  • Ensure that all the empty spaces in the boxes are filled with packing peanuts; this will help prevent the items from bouncing around and becoming damaged.
  • Placing all the books horizontally – it will prevent the corners from curling.
  • Use the opportunity to get rid of useless and less used items from your house and only pack the things you need.
  • Plan how you’re going to place all the furniture in a new home well before you get there. This will help save a significant amount of time on the move.

On The Day Of The Move…

  • Don’t keep any digital backup near magnetic items, as that can corrupt the points in your digital drive and you might end up losing the data.
  • If you hired a professional removalist, ensure that they show you their identification. This is important since you would be letting strangers into your house.
  • Label all the boxes meticulously and stick small notes on them mentioning the contents inside and the rooms they have come from. You can also mention whether the contents are fragile or not.
  • It’s best to take a day off from work even if you have hired professionals for the job. This will help you focus on ensuring that everything runs smoothly.
  • Maintain your call at all times, rather than becoming hassled with or using our temper on small things.

After the move…

  • The very first thing to do is to check whether all the items are in a good condition. It’s important you make note of broken items when the operators are on site, and hand the list to the manager. Ask them to sign that document, and make it a point to call the company in order to report this incident.
  • If you notice damaged items after the technicians have left, call the company without delay and inform them about it.
  • Make the payment as per the original quote provided to you at the start of the move. Do not make any additional payments aside from that.

Here you would be able to find details such as when the company came into inception, what its values are, its branding and the pricing it maintains etc. However, you need to delve a little deeper in order to validate the information that the company has provided on its site. A credible operator will always display information related to their licensing and insurance. You can also read online reviews and customer testimonials before making a decision. When you contact the company, ask them for referrals and call some of the previous clients. This will give you a clearer idea about the reputation of the company and the services it provides.

3. Tools & Equipment

Professional removalists will always use the best equipment and tools in their work such as ramps, trolleys, moving blankets, specially designed straps, small-wheeled platforms and more. They will also make sure that commercial-grade packing supplies are used to wrap and pack all items. A credible company will rent out crates and boxes at competitive pricing.
