moving house and packing advice, perfect metaphor via this famous quote

Perfect Metaphor To Help You When Moving Home

We love this quote from the Chinese Philosopher LAO TZU as it offers a great metaphor for an easy move.

Most rooms can take up to two days to pack, yet in some cases you also have to do other ‘tasks’ such as repair works, paint, or replacing used or old items before moving.

It is essential to also remember that you do not need to pack your whole house in a single week! Packing is boring for many people – it takes a great deal of time. Having a clear out and de-cluttering while you go, is a vital part of relocating, here are a couple of pointers that can help during the process.

Clear out your largest wardrobes & cupboards first – you could keep boxes as well as various other packed items in there. Pack the items that you will not need immediately – it might appear obvious, however packing up your winter months garments in summer, or doing away with your leisure activity stuff stored at the bottom of your wardrobe is a must.

It means you’re not living out of boxes for the duration of your packing, and also it additionally indicates that you’ll be able to store those boxes.

It is necessary to keep in mind though that packing up your things can sway nostalgia, thus adding time to the task at hand. So packaging could take a while, but bear in mind, if you’re organized and write the correct destination of your boxes while packaging, your unpacking will not take almost as long.

If you still find the thought of packing up your home ready for your move overwhelming, break the task down into bite size pieces. Focus on one room at a time and pack one box at a time. Failing that, why not treat yourself to a full pack and move by the professionals here at U Need A Van Removals.

U Need A Van Removals sprung into action yesterday to solve an internal removal issue here in Ipswich. Having had several attempts with the help of friends and family, trying to get a large sideboard up to the first floor. Had no choice but to seek the help of local experts in the removal business.

Need An Internal Furniture Move in Ipswich?

Call us for a fast response and solution if the following testimonial from Robin of Ipswich, matches your current predicament.

  • Been trying unsuccessfully to move a large, long, heavy sideboard, up to the second floor (it’s a town house) navigating round banisters and low ceilings…several failed attempts later with friends and family! I gave UNEEDAVAN a call after reading a few of the testimonials to see if they had any ideas or if what I thought was my next best solution, they could put it through the window on the 1st floor if we removed the window and bought in some lifting gear. The guys were very understanding of my problem, volunteered to come round and have a look, same day, and had a go at taking it up the stairs there and then. I’m pleased to say they managed to take it up the stairs…..where so many had failed before them. Great job…nothing to small (even though it was large), great service and highly recommended.

Hiring a company to move you is something that you may want to consider if you’ve got enough money to do so, and can’t afford the time to do it yourself, or its impossible for you to pack and move.

Moving companies offer several great reasons to hire them – with different levels of service. From companies who will show up and move you and your belongings to companies who will pack, clean and move your belongings from place to place.

There are also more and more ‘complete’ pack and move companies springing up, designed especially for professionals – allowing them to move to their job, without the hassle of it all. These companies do it all – from finding a suitable house within your price range and requirements, to packing you and moving you in. Some even unpack at the other end for you.

hiring a removal company in IpswichYou’ll need to check any company out thoroughly before hiring them – each company should be vetted to your satisfaction, with viable references if possible. You should also search for any complaints or comments about them online, and see what comes up. These recommendations should also contain information on whether they were prompt, priced fairly, or added additional costs.

You may also want to ask the company themselves for references, and information on when their cheapest and most expensive times are to move. You may find moving midweek to be far more cost effective, as weekends always carry a premium.

The company you eventually choose to move you will want to come out and inspect your home, to work out what they will be moving, and to provide you with a quotation, so you may want to de-clutter before they arrive – they will take an inventory in most cases and decide what your quotation will be. These companies will also provide you with a complete overview of their insurance – review it carefully so you’re sure of what they cover and what you’re liable for, should the worst happen.

Cost Of Moving Home In IpswichU Need A Van Removals of Ipswich resolved the problem of the high home removal costs for local resident, Charles Engram. Mr Engram called us after calling the traditional BAR Registered removal companies in Ipswich and Suffolk. (British Association of Removers).

Great Value House Move in Ipswich

Our very own master mover, Daren Scott was able to get to Mr Engram the very same evening. Complete a full inventory of the exact requirements for the move, supply the quotation and book his removal there and then. Whilst securing a considerable saving compared to the larger local removal companies.

  • After receiving quotes from the large local companies, I felt the price was not justified as I was down scaling to a two bedroom bungalow. U Need A Van came from a high recommendation. I was dubious about using a small removal firm for my relocation as previously I had always used expensive national firm’s however; Pleased to say I was not disappointed, from the outset the team were professional and well turned out. They arrived on time with laser focus on what needed to be achieved. Throughout the day I observed great banter between the men. It was pleasant to watch them work in a precise and conducive manner. Our move went as smoothly as any move can and I was glad I gave them a chance, I would use them again and will keep hold of their number. Thanks. “
