Moving your small belongings damage-free

A new series of moving ideas! We have made a list of all handy tips and tricks regarding moving, in order to make your removal easier. And it just might happen you get to save a few quid whilst doing so. This blog is primarily about moving small items that can easily be damaged in the process. For example, plants, paintings, lamps and books. A number of tips summarized:

  1. Moving tips – moving lamps
    A beautiful rhinestone decorated lamp with emotional value: you will want to move it to your new home safely. We recommend removing the light cover (if this is possible) and cover it with bubble wrap. Mark it with ‘L’ for lamp, or something else recognizable, so your movers know not to put it in the bottom of the truck.
  2. Moving plants
    Plants can be damaged severely when moved to a different place. Wrap the plants in plastic or bubble wrap just as you enter the moving van. Unwrap them immediately when you have arrived to protect the leaves and put them into a similar place as your old home. Consider light and humidity in this area.
  3. Moving books and paintings
    When it comes to protecting fragile items, bubble wrap is once again your best friend. Books are best moved in a rolling suitcase, so it is easier to carry. The paintings are best wrapped in bubble wrap and placed against the furniture in a standing up position. If you place paintings in the boxes, other items might damage them. Once they are scratched, they become quite difficult to repair. Be alert when you move your paintings.
