People make plans so never assume that they will be there for you when you need them to be and make-sure that you have asked for help in advance! Van size!Remember that larger items need to be able to fit in the van! Ensure you hire one that is big enough. There is no use trying to squeeze everything into a tiny van it will only add to the stress and also it could cause injury to yourself or your hired help by trying to do so!

Packing!You may want to consider packaging some of your items to reduce damage or scratches that can occur during transit. Sometimes only a little padding to the corners and edges is all that’s required. Although this may seem like a waste of valuable time you could end up regretting not doing it afterwards, especially if anything were to happen!If you are moving a washer be sure to replace the transit bar, if you still have it. The transit bar is generally fitted to all washers at the time of purchase to reduce the movements of the drum; it’s very beneficial for making sure a washer is moved without causing any damage to the appliance. If you do not have one, you may be able to shop online for one, it shouldn’t cost you much and it certainly beats having to replace the washer all together should anything go wrong!
