office movers pretoriaWhen you are moving everybody is quick to say what and how you should pack and remind you of the essentials you cannot forget. As leading furniture movers Pretoria, we have dealt with a lot of people that looked back on their move and if they could go back, they would take a few things out of the truck. This article will help you with what not to pack in the truck.

Assemble a moving kit and pack it in the car or your suitcase if you will be flying. A moving kit will be your saving grace if the moving truck doesn’t arrive on time. Moving companies do their best to stick to the schedule, but unfortunately weather, traffic etc. can’t be controlled. Make sure your moving kit moves with you and not with the truck.

Your moving kit should contain all the necessities to last a few weeks after the truck arrival date, just in case. Pack things like towels, detergent, shampoo, soap and medication. If you are using prescribed medication make sure to pack a few months’ worth to avoid unnecessary health worries.

Something you absolutely have to remember is the contract and other information you were given by the moving company. This is the Bill of Lading and will contain the information and resources if something went wrong. This happens way too often and the papers will save you loads of time in handling the matter. Also, read through ‘Your rights and responsibilities when you move” on the government’s website.

The next thing to remember is how the system works. The sales person only brings in business and then their customers get passed on to the next person in the chain of the company. If there is a problem the sales person might not be the best person to contact. This, of course, varies from company to company, but make sure to ask your sales person who your contact is during the move.

Use these tips and tricks for a hassle-free, successful move. Moving is stressful enough, no need for any more worries.
