What To Do When Things Don't Go As Planned On Moving Day
Posted on 2013-08-31
When things go wrong on moving day, it can feel a little as if the entire universe is conspiring against you. Steve Hitchings is the General Manager of The Finishing Touch moving service. He says that there are some common things that often go wrong on moving day. Some of the most common include bad weather, traffic delays, lost keys and poor access to houses and units.
"Moving house is complex and time consuming, but most problems which occur in moving are highly predictable and hence preventable," Hitchings says. Hitchings believes that when you hire professional removalists, these things can still happen, but the problems are certainly minimised for a number of reasons. First and foremost, removalists ask the right questions before the day of the move. For example, if there is narrow access for a truck, the removalists will have a small vehicle to transport goods the last few hundred metres. While disasters are rare, in his business Hitchings has seen it all and says it's always important to have a plan B should anything fall through, especially when people are moving on the day of the settlement and there is the risk that something might not go through.
