Homeowners are always faced with some common questions when looking at their home removals. This post will look at these common questions and outline their solutions. Perhaps some questions going through your mind will be answered as well.

Aside from getting some help from a trusted removalist, some individuals might decide to perform their home removals themselves. Below are some questions that usually come through their minds.

Should I go with wooden boxes or cardboard boxes?

The usage of wooden and cardboard boxes is mostly determined by the type of materials to be transported. For fragile and most breakable contents, we always advise that you go with wooden boxes. If you are moving your usual household properties, a sturdy cardboard box is the best option. It is, however, noteworthy that the wooden boxes are more expensive than the cardboard boxes.

How to pack liquid inflammable safely

While some home removalists agree to carry flammable liquids, others do not. This is due to the risk attached. If you are lucky to have a company that agrees to transport your flammable liquids, you have to provide full details of the content to be transported. Communicate the necessary information to the company ahead of time. This will make them come prepared for you.

Most companies might insist that you put all flammables in well-sealed metal materials to prevent an accident. In the real sense, there are may be some additional charges attached to such products. Taking a second thought, the cost of transporting such flammable materials might be costlier than the cost of purchasing a new one. This is the reason we advise homeowners to compare costs before beginning the moving process.

How can I pack glass to avoid breakage?

This is a common question asked by homeowners during the moving process. A lot of people  are usually scared of packing glass because of the fear of an accident. If you are in this category, there is practically no need to fear. The wooden boxes are available and work like a treat.
