Get a Move On

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Danny and I am here to tell you to GET A MOVE ON. I'm not being rude. I am just trying to give you some great tips on how to move your stuff when you need to move house. I have moved house 8 times in the last 4 years, so when it comes to packing, moving and storing stuff, I know a thing or two. I was a complete novice when I started out but having hired some of the best moving and storage contractors in the country, I have learnt from the best. I hope you like my blog.

How You Can Help Someone with Mobility Issues to Move to a New Home

Hazel Bailey

If you have a friend or family member who is affected by mobility issues, chances are that they'll need an extra helping hand when they move to a new home. Of course, you will want to do everything you can to assist, and there are a few things that can make the process so much easier.

Packing Up Their Possessions

They will need some assistance when it comes to packing everything up, particularly when it comes to items that they might not be able to reach so easily. Ensure that this part of the process has begun with plenty of time to spare prior to moving day.

The Benefits of An Unpacking Service

When it comes to choosing removalists, they should opt for a company that offers an unpacking service. There is an additional charge for this service, but it can be well worth it. The unpacking service might not be the removalists themselves, but is usually a separate team that arrives on moving day to unpack everything. This essentially means that your friend or family member can be settled in their new home on the same day. The unpacking team will need to be mindful of the physical limitations of the home's new inhabitant, but this can be as simple as ensuring that all key items are unpacked and placed within easy reach.

Inspection of the New Property

In the days before moving, you and your friend or family member should make a trip to the new home to perform an inspection. This is pertinent if any specialized equipment needs to be installed, such as handrails in the bathroom. Install these items yourself, if you have the time and the necessary equipment, or arrange for a professional to install the items prior to moving day.

Final Placement of Furniture

The removalists will need to ensure that all furniture and heavy items are placed in their final position, as your friend or family member will not be able to make any additional tweaks to their placement without assistance. This is not so complicated, and basically means that your friend or family member will need to sign off on the placement of the items in the room before it's deemed to be finished.

Moving to a new home can be a significant effort for anyone, but when you're helping a friend or family member with mobility issues to move, you will want to do everything you can to make the process as smooth as possible.
