Bending and Lifting
If you are moving on your own, one of the many things that happen are injuries occurring when lifting heavy objects from the house. Remember that you need to keep your back straight when lifting and use your legs otherwise you risk damaging your back or pulling a muscle. If you are not familiar with the techniques to do so, the best thing is to use a professional removal company who are fully trained at moving your precious property.
Two Pairs of Hands Are Better Than One
Weight of items is another thing to consider, some furniture and boxes can be far too heavy for one individual to lift safely so you can always get another pair of hands to help take the strain, this will help you get the job done quicker and more efficiently, getting help will also reduce the chance of injuring yourself, many hands make light work.
Pack Items Carefully
When it comes to packing, the most important thing is to make sure you have all valuables secured and not in any danger of smashing or breaking. These can be Glassware and expensive electronic devices that will break upon impact, placing delicate items in bubble wrap and other protective boxes will help keep your replacement bill down.
Team Work and Take Breaks
When packing for a move you will need to conserve your energy so you don’t burn out and give up, this means having regular breaks of food and water. If you’re still tired, make sure to pass the heavy lifting to others who are more energised, this means as a team you will accomplish more in the same time.
