06Oct 2014

Moving is a difficult enough task. It makes it even more stressful when there are items in the house that are so tough to move. When you are spending so much time trying to figure out the best way to move certain items, you are draining so much of your personal time. You will find, when you have furniture removals, that there are many challenges. There are certain items that are particularly tough to move. Here, we have outlined the most difficult items of furniture to move in the home or office and how to deal with them so that it isn’t an incredibly stressful and hard move.1.    Art WorkPaintings and sculptures are normally expensive and very fragile indeed. So you can imagine how difficult it is when it comes to moving these items into a removal van. It is so important that they are packed and wrapped properly. The best way to do it is by using bubble wrap. Cardboard pieces can also be used around the sides for extra protection of your paintings. 2.    Technology itemsComputers, televisions, and so on are all hard to move. They need to be packaged well. The monitor must be covered in a form of wrapping. A blanket is a useful DIY trick to covering your screen. If you have a plasma screen, don’t place the screen face down because this will damage it. If you hire a professional furniture removals company, they can pack it properly for you.3.    Pianos and musical instrumentsIf you are a keen musician at home, you probably have pianos and other musical instruments lying around the house. Of course, these will need special attention when you need to move them. Pianos are particularly difficult because they are very heavy and awkward in size. These are also hard to move into and out of buildings. For your piano, it would be safer to hire special movers to help you. For other musical instruments, make sure they are wrapped well. 4.    Fish tanksIf you have an aquarium at home that you would like to take with you when you move, it can be a hard process. It can also be devastating for your fish because of the trauma of temperature changes. So it is a huge risk moving them with you. Your finish might not survive the journey. Experts say that when you move, it is much less cruel and fairer to your fish to sell them. If you really want to take them with you, your fish must be moved with you in your car (not in a van) and you should use a holding container and don’t drain all the water out of the tank. It might be worth speaking to your local aquarium to ask for expert advice. So above are the most difficult items to move. However, if you follow our easy steps, you can find a way to move them easily so that they do not get damaged. Of course, using a professional moving company is always the best solution if you want to avoid damaged altogether. It is always a risk when you DIY move. All you need to do is follow the above steps and those difficult furniture items can be moved with ease. It doesn’t have to be too much of a nightmare for you.
