How to avoid errors during a move

During a move, clumsiness and small mistakes can be very costly. Here are 5 mistakes that can be avoided with a little preparation in advance. 

1. Using the wrong truck for transport

The main problem is that the truck is not large enough for all your belongings. To avoid this first inconvenience, you need to know the volume of your belongings in cubic meters. If the truck is large, you need driving skills and in some cases a special driving license. If the truck is not well controlled, you can lose your furniture and the truck deposit! This should not happen with a truck with a professional driver who can deliver your goods without difficulty.

2. Loading the truck

The problem can range from a fine, to having your driving license revoked for several months in some cases. There are rules for storing goods in a lorry and a weight limit is also required depending on the truck used.

3. Storing your furniture

While waiting to move in, you will need to find a place to store your belongings. Most of these places are very busy and relatively expensive. This is why Abilect provides you with a storage place to guarantee the safety of your furniture and boxes.

4. Cleaning your flat

At the end of the lease, you will have to clean your flat. Your property manager will have strict requirements. You will have to be very meticulous, or call in professionals. Our cleaners have a perfect command of the standards to be applied for the end-of-lease cleaning and will allow you to avoid the final cleaning bill that your landlord could charge you.

5. Looking for a "cheap" moving service

Moving house is often a big expense, so we tend to look for a cheaper professional to keep costs down. This may seem like a good idea in the short term, but it can turn into disappointment. Theft, broken or lost items, failure to meet deadlines, poorly insured professionals: these are the types of problems you can face with these discounted deals. It is better to spend a little more for a result that meets your expectations.
