If you are going to move soon with VDW Verhuizingen, good preparation and starting on time is essential for a smooth move.
Of course, these tips apply to relocations where you as a customer pack yourself. VDW assists you with tips and advice throughout the entire process and provides sufficient packaging materials, all of which is included.
You pack everything that fits in boxes or meter boxes, VDW will do the rest!
Fill it 75% with heavy things such as: books, records, CDs, weights (divided), supplemented with light material such as a cushion from the sofa, a cloth or clothing.
Fill this with lying clothes, lighter items and things that have to go to the floor or attic.
Fill it with the contents of the kitchen, living room and all other things that do not fit in the regular moving box. Also ideal for crockery and other delicate items and small house plants. Umbrellas, hockey sticks, wrapping paper, etc. can also be packed well in these bins.
This allows you to pack the most vulnerable items such as crockery, vases, art, etc., nothing should rattle in the box or meter container.
For bundling and packing loose boards, furniture, etc.
Sticker the boxes (on top!) And individual items:
make sure there is always 1 number on the box!
For your neat hanging clothes, 1 meter per box, can be hung on the day itself.
Paintings, mirrors, glass plates, screens, small flat screen TV, etc.
With this we package the large, vulnerable furniture.
The large, fragile furniture is packed by VDW (standard procedure).
By using the packaging materials in the right way, you prevent boxes that are too heavy or boxes with the bottom breaking. for example from the hardware store, please use them only for clothing and our sturdy boxes and bins for other things as described above.
You pack based on the situation in the new home!
Give each separate room in the new home a separate number from low to high!
So: -1 = basement 0 = shed / storage room 1 = living room, 2 = kitchen, 3 = bedroom 1 4 = bedroom 2 5 = guest room 6 = study 7 = attic 8 = loft etc.
The above is of course an example and depends on your new home and the number of rooms.
You put the numbers of the rooms in a map and stick them on the doorposts of the room in question.
All boxes are stickered on top with the relevant number and that also applies to the individual items.
PROCEDURE ON THE MOVING DAY
We place large furniture in the right place in the relevant room according to your instructions.
In this way, all furniture and boxes are immediately placed in the right place without sliding and unnecessary extra movement.
