Four Items That Are Always Harder to Move Than You Anticipate

You made the decision to relocate. This is a pivotal time for everyone in your family. You have sold the house, found a new one, gotten the job or whatever it is that is pushing you to move. Next, you start making an inventory of everything there is to move. Room by room all is ready. But, have you thought about the things that may require a little extra attention by the moving help? Naturally you attempt to go through everything possible, but there are some things that just require a little extra attention when moving. Here is a list of a few things:

  1. House plants help to make you home warm and inviting. They are a pivotal part of any indoor environment. From reducing indoor pollution to the great feeling they induce, plants really help to make a home more well rounded. However, there are precautions you need to take when moving them. You may want to consider moving your plants out of their ceramic pots, and into something a little more suitable for moving. This will make an easier job of moving the plants for the movers, and will make the move a little more safe for the plants. Be sure to start this process a few weeks before moving, if you choose to go this route. This way the plants will have time to adjust.
  2. Another big ticket item in moves is the piano. This can be a big deal for everyone involved. For the professionals you hire, there needs to be planning involved. For you  the piano may hold significance as an heirloom. No matter, it is still an expensive, arg item, and must have appropriate planning. Some movers specialize in piano moves, and you may want to consider ensuring the professionals you hire have the expertise to move the piano.
  3. Do you have fish and a fish tank? This can be another possible tricky item to move. Fish by themselves need to be moved outside of the fish tank, and you need to plan ahead to properly move the fish. This can be much more complex if the fish are tropical, or have special requirements. Additionally, the fish tank is another obstacle to over come. They can be heavy, fragile and large. You need to plan appropriately for moving this object.
  4. Finally, art is another issue to be aware of. Do you have sculptures? Do you have expensive paintings? These things require special handling, and need to be taken care of. This is another place where some movers specialize in moving art. You may want to check to see if your movers do.

No matter what special items you may have, hiring a moving service and moving is a big deal. Be sure you take the proper time to plan, and you ensure you have the proper pieces in place to make a successful move. It is also important that you do your homework, and be sure that all the boxes are checked when it comes to your move needs.
