So you’ve been given an opportunity to move, which can be due to a new job or you’ve simply found a new place to stay at. Regardless of the reason you decide to move, it’s important for you to relocate safely during this global pandemic.
You see, the pandemic has changed the way we live, eat, and work. It has caused us to adapt to new norms which require the constant wearing of face mask, keeping our distance when in public, sanitising our hands regularly, resort to remote working, and the constant worry of getting infected (though we’ve received news about the vaccine).
Not only that, but the pandemic has also changed the way we interact with people daily. The same goes to any logistics company in Singapore as the biggest challenge lies in handling the goods without putting anyone at risk of infection.
If you’re planning for a move during this pandemic, know that house moving services may take extra precautionary measures to curb the spread of infection in Singapore.
For any relocation, be it a residential or corporate move, the biggest challenge is to pack all that you have properly and transport them to your new location without a scratch or damage on your items.
This can be easily done by hiring a residential moving company to aid you in the move. Ahead, we’re sharing some of the benefits of using a house moving service during this pandemic.
Moving a house requires more than just packing your clothes and toiletries. It’s more of packing all your furniture and moving them to your new location to reduce your cost of relocation. This means you’ll need all the extra help you can get, either from your family or friends.
However, it can be quite a hassle to ask for help from your family or friends during this pandemic. Instead of going through all the trouble, hiring a house moving service seems like a feasible solution.
Professional movers will fare better in helping you move as they offer their time and services to help you pack and move your stuff without grousing about how much stuff you have or the tedious packing and moving process.
Relocation is tedious in the sense that you need to plan and schedule everything before your intended moving day. All the packing can be a challenge too. If you’re the person to procrastinate, it may take you a while to pack and move all your stuff – especially if you opt to rent a lorry and move everything on your own.
Hiring a residential moving company, on the other hand, can reduce the time taken to pack and move all your stuff. That’s because house moving services pride themselves on efficiency. So you can rest assured that all your belongings will be transported in an orderly and timely manner.
Now that you’ve learned about some of the benefits, you need to know how to pack your furniture for a more efficient move safely. Here are some ways for you to prepare for relocation.
Know what you have
Taking note of what you have can help you plan and prepare your schedule to disassemble certain furniture which can be taken apart for the move. For example, disassembling your bed frame, desk, and wardrobe will help to reduce the weight load on the truck.
Gather extra packing supplies
In some cases, less is more but more is better when it comes to packing for relocation. Be sure to invest in bubble wraps, plastic wraps, cardboard boxes, sealable plastic bags, upholstery covers, and tapes to protect and secure your furniture and items from damage and dirt.
Have a placement plan
The placement of your furniture in the moving truck is also important as it can be affected during the move. Be sure to take the time to plan to ensure even distribution of weight load on the moving truck for added stability.
Imagine dismissing the placement and placing your furniture however you want. You’ll have a hard time manoeuvring the truck due to uneven distribution of the weight load. Once you reach your new location, you may notice some scratches or damage to your furniture. This means you either have to live with damaged items or replace them at your own cost.
For added cushion, consider placing some blankets or towels to absorb the impact caused on the road. You can also use your mattress as a cushion but be sure to use a cover to protect it from dirt.
With all the planning, packing and moving, it’s no surprise that relocation can be a stressful one. Why not hire people who are skilled and experienced in moving to help you? At LCH Logistics, we offer three types of moving services – local deliveries, house move or corporate move, and full container haulage.
