This could be the one biggest headache in all of moving and removals Sydney! It is so easy for things to go wrong – boxes may not be durable enough and may get easily damaged, there may not be enough packing materials for you to finish packing and the biggest problem of procrastination! What we’ll say is that when it comes to packing, you should always aim to get ahead and start early so that you can tackle packing issues as they arise and not at the last minute.
When the movers arrive and things are getting shipped out the battle is almost over! But even in this last minute, there’s a possibility that items may get scuffed or damaged. Especially fragile items and breakables – if not properly labelled, it is possible that some things may really be spoilt beyond recovery. Do have a good content insurance plan installed, or check with your moving and removals company on what kind of coverage they can offer you.
Time problems are actually pretty subjective.
