The truth is that there are many things that are difficult to move. It’s just that we don’t realize how hard a task may be until after we’ve tried. If you want to save yourself such headaches, trust the professionals at Today Movers. Here is a list of things you should not attempt to move on your own!
Big and Bulky Musical Instruments
We realize that most people don’t think musical instruments are easy to move. It’s just that they don’t realize how hard they actually are. While you may be perfectly suited to take care of your guitar, the same doesn’t apply to a piano. The fact that your piano may have wheels, doesn’t really make it all that “moveable”. This is why one of the most common pieces of advice you will hear about moving musical instruments is to consider companies that have experience in that field.
Pieces of Art
You can just roll up a poster and stash it somewhere, but if you have valuable artwork, properly displayed in a frame, you should always handle it with great care. Truthfully, unless your day job involves gallery or museum installation work, you are not suited to handle it by yourself at all. Even if the piece isn’t all that big, you may end up inadvertently damaging it if you don’t know what to do with it.
The same applies to all kinds of physical artworks, including marble statues and sculptures. Don’t overestimate your capabilities and just call the pros.
Animals (and Fish Tanks)
While the previous two things may be quite obvious, you’d be surprised how many people actually try to move their animals without even thinking about their needs. Animals are live creatures, so take care when you move them. Do your research and don’t think that your pets can’t be stressed out.
Also, don’t think that moving a fish tank is an easy task either. If you have a fish tank you’d like to move, you will definitely need to do some digging on how to do it properly, otherwise you may end up with no fish at all.
Plants are one of those things that many people have around their house, but put little thought into moving. Right now, you may have a bunch of cacti and succulents lying around, but no flowers. If you do have flowering plants, especially delicate tropical plants or orchids, take good care of them while you are moving. In some cases, you may not even want to move them at all, because the stress of re-potting can kill them. Do your research, and enlist the expertise of a local nursery before you move.
