Television sets, sofas, wine collections and fish tanks are only a couple of items that come to mind when we think of large and awkward objects. These can present a great deal of difficulty when it comes to packing, storing and moving due to their large size or awkward shape. You will often find that hiring interstate furniture removalists is the best route to take. At 1800 Removals, we offer a comprehensive packing and unpacking service. Our experienced and professional removalists will ensure your inventory is being handled with the utmost care.
Aside from being able to offer services for packing and moving your items, we can also provide helpful tips and suggestions on how best to deal with particularly large and awkward items:
Securely wrap the inventory
Most importantly to note, whether you’re packing a TV, sofa or a priceless work of art, make sure that everything is securely wrapped. Cover any exposed edges and corners to prevent scuff marks.
Although moving house can be a fast-paced and stressful process, you must take the time to lift heavy items carefully, especially if they are shaped awkwardly.
Squat down to pick heavy items up without rounding your back, and lift them by driving your feet into the ground and pulling with your upper back rather than your lower back which is more vulnerable.
The last thing you want is a back or hip when you have a whole house of items to move, so always be cautious of your lifting form and technique.
