Fragile belongings can be easily damaged during amateur attempts at moving  luckily, when you work with Noah’s Ark Moving and Storage, there is no risk of having your belongings damaged, as our personnel are trained with a golden glove to provide exemplary service. In this blog entry, our residential and commercial moving service experts will provide some excellent moving safety tips that you can implement to make sure that none of your belongings are damaged.

Moving Preparation

Try to be prepared for eventualities before you start your move. Have a first aid kit packed,  and make sure to clear the pathway between your home and the moving vehicle of all potential hazards. If you’re moving out of an apartment building, let your neighbors know so they can potentially stay clear of the moving path. Its ideal to lessen the chances of bumping into people.

Leg Lifting and Stretching

Always stretch before your move, and make sure to always lift up from your legs not your back. Keep your back straight, don’t bend it, and bend your knees – and lift straight up using your legs. This protects your back and allows you to preserve balance.

Be Careful How You Carry

Make sure to always carry objects, especially heavy ones, over a clear path.l only carry amounts of weight that you can easily manage, and make a few trips rather than trying to compound all your items into just one trip. Walk slowly as much as possible, and try to hold boxes close to your body. Remember, moving tools like dollies, straps, hand trucks, and glides are your friend.

Assistance

Make sure to get assistance for moving heavy items like disassembled furniture. Make sure to work well with your partners, and discuss your plans for moving an item before you pick it up. Stay conscientious of needs for breaks. If you’re giving an item to another person, don’t let go of it until you’re certain they can carry that amount of weight.
