A Quick Guide to Help You Avoid Injuries While Moving
And the day has finally arrived. It’s the day when you are supposed to shift to your new house and while you are battling all those emotions associated with leaving your old house and neighbourhood and settling into a new one, you are also equally aware of the practical demands of such an event (i.e. house removal).
Safety Tips while Moving: Are you Listening?
In the process of finding the best furniture removalists in Perth, supervising their work and finally settling into your new home, you hardly have time for yourself! While you are too busy thinking whether the goods will be moved safely or not, you perhaps are not paying attention to ways in which you can avoid injuries while you are moving.
You might as well have got the best professional removalists on board but you might as well be enthused to take part in the proceedings. So, there is actually no harm in keeping the safety tips in view.
Now, there are some people who end up committing the monstrous gaffe of moving heavy furniture sets on their own. The reason? They do not really want to invest money in removalist services. It’s often found that only one or two members of the family is/are leading the move – without quite realising the fact that moving a house is too big an event to be handled by one or two people and from thereon starts the risk of injury.
Firstly you are laymen and are not aware of techniques employed by professional movers to avoid risks to furniture and the property itself. You might as well go overboard in your attempt to ensure that both the responsibilities are duly taken care of, i.e., try to make a quick move through the staircase with a heavy sofa set or else try to dodge a playful kid while moving a heavy almirah. Let us tell you that there is virtually a plethora of injury risks while you are moving. So, make sure you are not relying on a one man team (DIY here) but accessing services of credentialed professionals.
Plan your move ahead. You can do this even when you are hiring professionals. Take a day to literally map out the corners of your home in your mind. Which corners do you think will create troubles when the furniture sets are being moved? Which furniture mover from Perth have you hired? Make sure you are informing the movers about the “dicey” corners beforehand so that they are extra conscious.
Wrapping it Up…
Last but not the least – do keep a first aid box so that injuries like cuts or minor bruises can be immediately attended to. Pain balms or sprays, ointments and bandaids – if you don’t have these supplies present at home – already make sure that you are making arrangements for the same without delay. Make sure you have access to them when needed.
Please remember these safety tips while moving! Avoid unnecessary hassles with their help.
Wish you a safe moving experience!
