When people are drawing up a list of the most stressful events in their lives, moving house has to be among the most common answers. Whether you’re conducting the move yourself, with the help of your friends or with professional movers in Singapore, there will always be a million things to juggle and risk to damage or injury.
Before you actually start the process of relocating your home, you should conduct your own research either online or through your personal contacts. By diligently learning more and gathering house moving tips, you will be able to make the moving process easier and help stave off any disasters.
Here at A Star, we have taken the time to talk to some of our previous customers to better understanding the moving problems they experienced and how to solve them.
Pets Keep Getting In the Way
We love our pets, and we know that you love yours too. The last thing we want to happen would be to have our curious Fido getting injured during the move. You won’t be the only one being stressed during the move. Pets take their mood cues from their owners. Given the high chance that you’re going to be stressed out during the move, so will your pet. You also do not want your dog getting in the way of your movers who are carrying your bulky furniture such as your piano or couch.
During your move, if you have a friend willing to take care of your pet, you can ask their help to put your pet at their home during the move. If not, you might want to put your pets in daycare or even board them overnight. The key is to keep them safe and away from all the hustle and bustle of the move.
Please do your research on reputable pet daycare or boarding centres as recently there has been a spate of unlicensed pet boarders in the news for all the wrong reasons.
Not Enough Storage Space in Your New Home
It’s not uncommon to find people overestimating the amount of storage space that they have in their new homes. You may think that you have all the space in the world in your new home to place your old furniture and bulky items only to find that you do not when you start bringing your furniture over.
To prevent this from happening to you, you may want to consider looking for reputable storage space rental services in Singapore for your excess items. You can decide to either store them for a while or over a longer period, whichever suits your needs better.
Hiring Unprofessional Movers in Singapore
If you have decided to work with professional home movers, please do your research before hiring them. You will need to visit their website to understand the extent of moving services that they offer, read through their testimonials and reviews as well as ask them to visit your place to give you a proper quote.
Some unscrupulous movers are only in it to make a quick buck. They do not care about the quality of service they provide and will simply move your precious furniture haphazardly, causing much damage.
Other tricks that these movers use would be to provide a very cheap quote at the outset, move your items from your home to your void deck, then claim that the items were more than what they expected and insist on charging more. If you refuse, then you will end up with the unenviable task of moving all of your items back upstairs.
Sure, understand exactly how stressful moving your house can turn out to be. However, we hope that with those simple advice above, you will be able to make your move less stressful and more enjoyable.
