You may have already researched the same for packing. Now, to add up to your vast treasure box of knowledge, get to know the most disastrous packing mistakes of all time according to the best London removal companies. Read up and make sure that you do not fall prey.
DISASTER # 1 – BOXES FILLED TOO HEAVY
Be sure to not overstuff your boxes. If you fill them much too heavy, the tendency is that they will break and give in at the bottom. They will also be too weighty to move and carry around. An equation that movers suggest is heavy items go in small boxes and bulky but light ones in bigger cartons.
DISASTER # 2 – TOO MUCH UNECESSARY SUPPLIES
Do not stock up and buy all the supplies you see in the hardware store or those listed in many articles around the web. Only get those that you will need. You might just overspend at things that will not be of benefit to you at all.
DISASTER # 3 – ABSENCE OF INVENTORY
When things have been carefully placed inside their boxes, be sure to label them accordingly. Put in a short description of their contents, the room they belong to and an inventory number. This way you can determine how many cartons are actually being moved. There will be no way for you to lose stuff.
DISASTER # 4 – PACKING RUBBLE
You do not have to bring with you every single item. Leave behind those that are not useful anymore. You can sell broken stuff at a junk shop while useful things at a garage sale. You can even donate them to charity or give them away to friends.
DISASTER # 5 – LOST DOCUMENTS
Be sure to keep all you important papers with you. Place them all in one box and do not mix them up inside the moving truck. Have it inside your car instead.
DISASTER # 6 – JUMBLED UP WIRES
Not everyone is a technician so when you dismantle your desktop computer, be sure to label wires accordingly or better yet take a photo. The same goes for all other electrical equipment.
DISASTER # 7 – THE WRONG TRUCK
Lastly, for people who do not hire movers getting a moving van or truck is necessary. Be sure that the one you rent can fit your biggest belongings in height and width.
