Some tips to make your removal smoother
The day for relocating has come, and your entire household is in expectation of removals. Your weapons are all the empty cartons, a lot of tape, a permanent highlighter and all the courage you can gather, all your stamina, all your nerves. For moving house is not a simple and intuitive job. It’s a penal servitude. It causes much more stress than any other family endeavour. It’s a very extreme experience. It’s much like packing your suitcase for a long trip, only you have to pack like a really inhuman amount of suitcases.
First you have to make a list, or lists of your belongings. It’s the best time to proceed like you are doing the comprehensive spring cleaning. Make sure you sort out the trash while you are packing – those are items that are in bad condition, they are not regularly used, and are inappropriate for your new dwelling. You want to start anew and take only the good stuff with you.
If you at any stage feel overwhelmed, consider calling a man and van service for your removals. For a few pounds, they will save you the terror of having to organise all your stuff, and move it without breaking it, without the need for you to carry heavy cartons like a porter. Man and van services will assist you in being the London gentleman or lady you are. It’s not only a relief from unpleasant obligations but it is practically a statement of social status: meaning you have others more profitable things to do with your time.
Do-it-yourself removals are a pain in the neck – in some cases even literally. It is better to invest into a man and van service, than to engage your entire being,and lose your health in the process. It is not easy, it is not fun – leave it to professionals.
