Furniture
Furniture is one of the most commonly damaged items during moves. The reason for this is usually the result of not having enough assistance and experience with moving awkwardly shaped, heavy, and bulky furniture. The solution to these problems? Hire a team of removalists! Removalists are experts at packing, carrying, and maneuvering furniture through awkward spaces and around corners. Leave the heavy lifting to them!

Sports equipment
Sporting equipment is often overlooked as something that may be easily damaged during a move. While it may look sturdy, it can be just as fragile as glassware, not to mention the fact that it is often quite valuable and difficult to replace. To avoid damage to your sports equipment, ensure equipment is packed and protected well. To begin, pack the equipment in its original packaging. If you still have the manuals for larger equipment, check if there are recommended precautions that need to be taken when moving the equipment. Also, take extra care when packing delicate sports gear including bikes, tennis racquets, and golf clubs.

Plants
If you’re a green thumb, it’s highly likely you will want to bring your favourite plants with you when you move. The good news is, you can! It will just take some special care as plants can be difficult to move safely as they are extremely vulnerable. A few days before your move, stop watering your plants, this will make them easier to move and cause less of a mess. Use ties and bags to protect branches and to separate each plant. If you are packing your plants in boxes, ensure there are holes for breathing. Don’t forget, always pack your plants last and unpack them first!
