Furniture moves – what to avoid

What are the things to avoid while preparing for furniture moves? That is something here at Martin Removals Edinburgh are asked very often. These are our 3 main “don’ts” for furniture moves:

AVOID moving old furniture unless absolutely necessary.
If you can replace old furniture, instead of moving it, that is always preferable (unless your furniture is very expensive to replace or has sentimetal value).  Think about whether you really need the old furniture in your new house. Furniture items can be heavy and large to transport, so the cost of doing so might be high. Do you really think it’s worth the work?

AVOID packing filthy and dusty furniture items.
Make sure your furniture is dust-free and clean before packing it up for your removal. Your furniture may get scratched during the move due to dirt and dust. For this reason, giving your furniture a good cleaning should come before packing it up.

DON’T loose your hardware.
When removing furniture, don’t forget about your hardware. The tiny fragments, nails, and screws are easily lost during furniture moves, and without them you may be in trouble.

DON’T apply packing tape directly to furniture surfaces.
Furniture surfaces shouldn’t be directly taped over with packing tape. It might leave a sticky residue and harm the finish. For the best protection of the furniture during furniture moves, start with packing paper or bubble wrap.

How to prepare for a house clearance

A house clearance can be a challenging and demanding task that is frequently influenced by feelings about the house, its contents and possibly its previous occupants.

The assistance of a professional house clearance company like Martin Removals Edinburgh can make the process go more smoothly and guarantees a stress-free experience.

To make the process of getting ready for a house clearance as simple as possible, we’ve included some helpful advice below.

Choose what should be removed.
Sorting out what needs to be thrown out and what needs to be kept is the first step. Allow plenty of time for this process, as it may take longer than anticipated, particularly when sentimental or emotionally charged items are involved.

Sort your belongings.
Sort the things you want to donate, sell, or keep from the ones you need to get rid of. Separate them into various rooms or piles, at minimum. Adding stickers with color codes—green for “bin,” orange for “sell/donate,” and red for “keep”—adds even more clarity.

Contact a company that has specific experience of house clearances. If you are in Edinburgh, Martin Removals has been helping with house clearances for over 40 years.

Take the environment into consideration
Do you think the environment matters? Again a company like Martin Removals Edinburgh will be a great port of call, as we make sure every item we work with is disposed of responsibly.

House clearance – rules and regulations

Hazardous Materials: tight house clearance rules are enforced by Edinburgh Council regarding the disposal of dangerous materials, such as oil based paint and chemicals. These pose major health risks if not handled properly, so it is imperative that they be disposed of responsibly and in compliance with all local laws.

Electronic Waste: One of the most prevalent household items that needs to be disposed of properly these days is electronic waste. These devices, which range from phones to computers and other gadgets, contain potentially harmful materials like lead that, if not disposed of properly can contaminate nearby soil and groundwater.

Recyclables: As more homes try to lessen their impact on the environment, Edinburgh Council encourages people not to put to land fill anything that can be recycled during your house clearance.
