Removal Van and Removal Helpers
Book the removal van in time, so that you can compare prices at your leisure. Mobilise as many friends and family members as possible to help on moving day.
If you have pets or children that need looking after on the day, ask for help with this in time.
Reducing and Decluttering
Let go of things that you no longer need. Have a garage sale or donate the discarded things to charity.
Each object that you clear out no longer has to be packed, carried and unpacked. Also raid your pantry and eat your frozen foodstuffs in time.
Organising Removal Material
Well in advance, make a list of all material that you will need and make sure you have it at hand in time. For example:
- Removal boxes, approx. one box per square metre of living space
- Packing tape
- Packing paper
- Furniture dollies
- Carrying aids
- Removal clips
Packing Correctly – Tips & Tricks
Make sure that all boxes are fully packed and labelled on the removal day. Important information: the contents and the room. The removal clips are very practical. They make it possible to unambiguously identify the boxes by means of pictograms and colour coding, without written labeling impairing their future reuse.
The stacking corners ensure that boxes stacked on top of each other are held securely.
The most important packing tips:
- Always pack only things from a single room into each box.
- Never pack a box to the brim with books.
- Only make the boxes as heavy as you can carry.
- Protect fragile objects with packing paper.
- Transport tableware upright instead of stacked on top of each other.
- Pack a survival box with everything that you will need on the first day.
- Always stack the boxes with the heaviest weight at the bottom.
- Use stacking corners for safe and neat stacking.
Dismantling and Transporting Furniture
Your furniture also has to be prepared for the removal. If possible, take apart large furniture, such as cabinets and shelves. This saves a lot of space in the removal van. You also need less effort to carry the individual parts. Use a suitable furniture dolly to move heavy or large pieces of furniture, such as couches. For this, we provide smart multi-part solutions with practical extra benefits.
Protecting Your Back
Don't risk back injuries when carrying the boxes. Most of us are not trained to carry heavy loads. For your own safety, use ergonomic carrying aids, such as our carrying belt system with shoulder and waist straps and fold-out carrying plate. It enables you to ergonomically carry cardboard boxes and drinks or shopping crates. Thanks to effective load distribution, you will benefit from 75% less exertion in the arms.
The First Steps in Your New Home
Guide the helpers through the new rooms and make sure that all boxes end up in the right rooms. Stack the boxes on top of each other to save space. You can now use the free space on the floor to assemble the furniture.
Connect your electrical devices and ask a helper to install the light fixtures and bulbs. Now the biggest challenges have been mastered and you can look forward to unpacking and decorating.
