Items to leave to the professionals when moving

Moving all your possessions to a new home is a difficult task, especially if you are trying to move everything on your own.  There are some items that are best left to the professionals; do not try to pack and move such items yourself.

Musical instruments, for example, are very delicate, and the great majority are also extremely expensive.  Many instruments are also of great sentimental value to their owners and should be handled with great care.  The likes of keyboards, organs and pianos are very heavy and yet surprisingly fragile.  They will need several people to lift them and there are rules that need to be followed so that they are in the correct position to be packed.

Heavy pieces of furniture are also items that should be treated with great caution.  If such an item is mishandled, there is a strong chance that it will be damaged in some way.  Heavy furniture requires a great deal of strength and stamina to move, and specialist help is absolutely essential in such circumstances.  Professional movers will need to bring all of the proper equipment and personnel.

Everyone has fragile items such as plates or glassware, and you will need to make sure that you find boxes and materials that are adequate to protect them during relocation.  These can be supplied by professional moving companies, which will also be able to handle the packing of such items for you.
