4 Essential Pieces Of Moving Equipment To Help You On Moving Day

Moving Equipment

Pads, dollies, and straps are all used to protect your belongings within the truck

Moving can be a really tough job. However, utilizing the right gear and equipment can really help to make sure that your move isn’t any more difficult than it needs to be. Some equipment helps to protect you, some to protect your equipment, and some of it just makes the whole process easier. The following pieces of equipment can really help to make your move go as smoothly as possible.

1. Padded Moving Blankets

Padded moving blankets are essential for every move. We find it best to secure pads to your furniture items with tape, stretch wrap, and/or elastics. Padding your furniture also helps to protect your walls and other things that the furniture might rub into; it’s a lot less damaging to hit a quilted moving pad than it would be to snag a wooden corner.

Aside from padding your furniture, moving blankets are also useful if you need to slide anything. For example, if you were to slide a dresser across a hardwood floor, you may damage the dressers legs, and you will most likely scratch the floor. However, adding a furniture pad as a buffer will work wonders in keeping everything protected.

2. Moving Dollies (Four Wheelers) 

The easiest way to move most boxy furniture and appliances is to put it on a moving dolly. This is even more important if you are moving within an elevator building, or any building with long corridors. You can’t really dolly your furniture up and down stairs, so that is one limitation of moving dollies. However, if you get creative with some locking moving straps, bungees, or ropes, you can secure almost anything to a dolly. That can be useful if you have any pieces that don’t set flat on your moving dolly.

3. Hand Trucks (Two Wheelers) 

Hand trucks can be great for shuttling large numbers of boxes along. They are also very useful for some larger pieces that might be awkward to carry, such as refrigerators, washers, dryers, armoires, and even bureaus. Some hand trucks are even special made for these large items, and will have straps to secure the cargo to the hand truck, as well as “stair climbers” over the wheels, which make it possible to bring these items up or down stairs. Proper use of hand trucks can shave hours off of your moving time, and can help to save your energy as well.

4. Simple Tool Kit

You’re going to want to keep a basic tool kit handy for any move. Essential items would be a hammer, philips & flat-head screwdriver, alan key set, and adjustable wrench. It can be handy to have a socket set, pliers, and even some power tools as well, but they aren’t as essential. You’ll want to make sure that you have all the equipment you may need to assemble or disassemble any furniture, remove doors from hinges, and possibly to unmount things from your walls, like TVs or framed items.

Discover Ways to Make Your Move Easier

Discover Ways to make Your Move Easier

Finding an easier way to do something should be commend and encouraged as it shows you are using your intelligence to make a tough task more manageable.
This can be applied to many situations from paperwork, tackling all of our day-to-day chores, decorating, cleaning up our abode and more. One thing it can,
and defiantly should, apply to is home and business removals. Tackling an entire move is prolonged and complicated progress that takes dedication,
strength, skill time, patience and knowledge. If you lack this and attempt to tackle all of the chores such as planning, packing goods, carry heavy items,
booking services, transport items and more, then it can be a disaster. You can break or lose your belongings, be delayed, have to rush through processes,
not properly complete a task, and more. If you want to stay on top of your move and find an easier way to do things, then read on.

The first way of making things easier is by having a comprehensive schedule. This will allow you to
keep track of all chores and the time you have to do them. It will prevent you rushing through things, allow you to have enough time to perform all tasks,
enable you to buy necessary materials in advance and so on. If you adhere to it then delays won’t be an issue, especially if you start early and give
yourself extra time. This will also give you the chance to see what services you need, as you can book them early on if you can’t do something yourself.

Thinking ahead also means that you won’t have to worry about not being able to get services and support when they are needed. A schedule can also be used
to assign job to different people so different members of your household/workplace can get involved and know exactly what they are doing, making the
process go faster and reducing the work for everyone involved.

Purchasing all the packing metrical you need before you begin the move is also of great benefit. With the additional time, you can work out how much
wrapping and how many boxes you need and then go out and buy the right amount. This will ensure you can complete the packing in one go, without worry of
running out or having to stretch materials further, which can risk your goods. It also gives you time to shop around for deals, ensuring you can get a
bargain.

As you go through items and sort them, you may notice that you have goods you no longer need. These can be old items, things that have been replaced, goods
that have broken, etc. There is no point packing and transporting these so you should get rid of them. You
could throw them away of recycle them if possible, but also consider donating decent items to charity. If possible, sell unwanted goods and make some extra
money.

Booking services well in advance provides multiple benefits. You can ensure you get a good firm, which they will be there when you need them and you can
get a great deal. If you leave it to the last minute, you may find that you have to hire a sub-par firm who may charge you too much. Preparing will allow
you to have firms arrive to a pack, carry and transport goods when you need them, so the process can go according to our schedule.

Making your move easier is the best way to approach it so take these tips to heart and see how simple a removal can be.

How To Organize Yours Moving Truck For Your Move

How to organise a large removal van when moving house

Planning the layout of how you will pack your furniture and boxes into a large removal van is an essential first step to consider when moving house!
Thinking about this right from the start will ease the entire process and will ensure the highest level of safety too.

Before the process of packing begins, ensure boxed items are labelled clearly with the room they belong to and any furniture to be taken apart has been
fully dismantled. Any screws, nuts and bolts from furniture can be stored in tupperware or biscuit tins and kept together, clearly labelled as to what they
belong to. Once your van has arrived, begin moving items out onto the street and begin the process of packing!

First – Pack all heavy appliances in first. This can include the fridge, freezer, dish washer, cooker, oven, washing machine and so on. Being as far
forward as possible means the heavier items are closer to the engine which makes life easier and safer for the truck and its driver. Remember, it is always
best to store appliances the right way up.

Second – Separate out all things that can be used as cushioning or padding. This can include cushions, blankets, towels, pillows, mattresses, duvets or
curtains. First, you may wish to wrap any of these for their own protection from dirt or damage. Have a roll of duct tape handy to aid in wrapping these
objects. Tape can also be handy in wrapping certain delicate pieces of furniture with towels or blankets, including mirrors or large ceramics.

Third – Pack longer, larger pieces of furniture along the sides of the van. This can include sofas, wardrobes, drawers, cabinets and the odd chaise longue!
It can also include long pieces of furniture that have been taken apart for transport including bed frames and book shelves. Any pieces of furniture that
include drawers are best packed with drawers facing the sides of the van to minimise the chance of
them opening in transit. Taping drawers shut is a good idea, although if you are worried about marking the furniture use rope or cables instead to secure
some kind of padding, either blankets or a mattress.

Fourth – Bring in the boxes! Normally a large truck will allow for three levels of storage. Ideally load
your lowest level with the heaviest boxes, the middle level with slightly lighter boxes and the top level with the lightest boxes. It’ll be far easier if
all boxes are the same size, keeping each level roughly the same height.

Fifth – Now bring in the remaining items to fill any gaps or holes in the van. Use any remaining soft items to cushion and soften any tight packing,
delicate objects or sharp corners. Remember, loose objects are dangerous objects! If you run out of cushioning, use cable-ties or rope where possible to
secure movable objects or layers of packing that might seem unstable.

What happens if you discover the truck is bigger than you need? It is never a good idea to layer your belongings too high in a large truck and leave a
large empty space at the back. This will allow things to shift and move once the van gets going. Instead, do not aim to create as many as three layers but
spread out your packing to create one even layer throughout. You are always aiming to allow for as little movement as possible, so even layers and secure
cushioning will be your best friends at all times.

Last Minute Moving Guide

Last Minute Moving Guide

In a perfect world, you’d have two months or more in which to plan and pack for your move. Nonetheless, sometimes you’ll have to make last minute moving
preparations. This is a guide to moving house when you are stretched for time. If you need to make a quick move, then consult this brief guide – you’ll
surely avert trouble!

You absolutely must, straight out the gate, hire some movers. Usually, we’d recommend taking some time over this process to find just the right mover and
to negotiate a great rate for moving, but the sad fact is that you do not have the time to give this process the consideration is deserves if you need to
move last minute. However, it is still very important to find the right moving company for your move, so dedicate some time to researching companies and
finding one that will provide you a good service for a price that won’t break the bank. We have created guides to choosing a moving company, so consult
them, but bear in mind you are working on a highly condensed timetable – limit your research accordingly!

If you are conducting a move yourself, and need van hire services, the same standards apply. Take the time to source quotes for van rental, and research
van rental companies, but ensure you spend far less time on this process. A quick internet search and some phone calls should be sufficient for you to find
just the right van rental services company. Remember, you may find renting a truck more difficult at certain times of the year – especially if you are
moving during the summer! If you are finding it difficult finding a moving van for hire, consider other options. Could you borrow a vehicle from a friend
for your move? Could you hire a car from a car rental services company? Remember, if you go this route, you will need to make more trips than if you hired
a proper spacious moving truck. This may not be ideal, but remain resourceful – bear in mind that in most cases you
absolutely have to move on a particular date, so be prepared to adapt your operations and practical needs according to the realities you encounter during
your research. Keep every option open, and leave no stone unturned!

You can also reduce the preliminary stages of your move (i.e. planning and packing) by consulting some experts. The best professional moving services will
be more than willing to give you a helping hand in your hour of need, for a small fee. There are even professional packing services who can help you pack
everything in your house for moving day – investigate this option if you are truly pushed for time and have far too much stuff to sort out to spend that
much time on organising your possessions and packing them to a professional standard. However, researching professional packing businesses can further
reduce the time you have to finalise your move, so be wary of dedicating too much time to this process.

Make sure also that you quickly equip yourself with the appropriate packing materials. There are lots of things you will need to conduct a move – again, we
have produced guides to packing materials which you should consult if in doubt. Some moving firms will even have comprehensive moving packs for sale, which
contain everything you may need to pack your possessions for your big move!

We wish you luck and urge you not to lose sleep if you have a last-minute move on the cards!

 

Ensuring That You Are Using The Right Packing Materials For Your Move

Ensuring that you are using the right packing materials for your domestic removal

Packing is the largest part of the job that you will have to worry about, and it can be especially stressful if you are not completely on top of things.
The best way to ensure an efficient as well as safe and stress free move, is to start early and plan thoroughly, to ensure that there are no issues buy the
time you come to the actual day of the move. In many ways, the smaller things, like the packing materials that you use, can be overlooked at first, and
these are often the things that make the largest difference to your process, in that they will dictate how safe your items are! With a thought towards
ensuring that your house removals go as smoothly as possible, ensure that you have a look over the following to ensure that you are using the right
materials.

Environmental laws have meant that it is now a lot harder to pick up cardboard boxes from shops and supermarkets. They are not dedicated to appearing
green, and recycle such items as quickly as possible. At any rate, the cardboard boxes that supermarkets use nowadays are rarely fit for use as packing
boxes. The best place to find appropriate packing boxes in the current
climate is from a dedicated removals company or storage outlet, as these two services are the ones with the most demand for such items. You will of course
find that packing boxes do not come cheap, and given that they are being supplied by a provider who understands the situation that you are in, they can
make you pay different rates on a wildly varying scale. Some suppliers may demand double what another would charge, so always do your research! This
research should encompass the nature of the boxes themselves as well; you will no doubt understand that some boxes will be better than others, and these
are the ones that you want, to be completely sure that you are at no risk of things getting damaged because of the boxes. Single and double walled boxes
play a large part in all of this, and you will find that the double walled boxes are a lot stronger, and can be used a few times, whereas single walled
packing boxes are a fair bit weaker, and may pose a risk to your items whilst they are in transit. At any rate, it is essential that you look up the sizes,
strengths and prices for a wide range of boxes, from different suppliers, to ensure that you are not in any risk of getting the whole thing wrong!

By far and away the best option is usually to go with your removals company when it comes to picking up new boxes. They will have deals with wholesalers,
and will be able to use the boxes as leverage when making the deal a little sweeter for your whole removals package. As domestic removals are so expensive,
the removals company will use their low margins of profit to entice customers to them, by offering low prices for their removals boxes. The added bonus of
this is that you know that such boxes have been tried and tested by these professional removals experts, and that means that you know they are up to the
job of protecting your items whilst you move house. You will find that you can get tape, tissue paper, bubble wrap, wardrobe boxes, furniture covers, sack barrows, van straps and all sorts
of other essentials form a removals company as well.

4 Tips To Help You Settle Into A New City

It doesn’t matter whether you’re only moving to a nearby neighborhood, or making the move halfway across the world – settling into your new home can be difficult. With time, patience, and a little help from the advice below, you’ll be loving life in your new area in no time at all.

1. Embrace the Internet

The internet is an incredible resource if you are moving to a new area. Google Maps can help you find everything you need and is more detailed and updated than pretty much any city atlas. Yelp is a great resource for finding local restaurants, grocery stores, hardware stores, doctors or dentists, swimming pools, gymnasiums and just about anything else. You can read real reviews from real people, and make informed decisions that will help you find the hidden gems and the places to avoid in your new neighborhood.

 

2. Be Brave

Okay, so moving to a new area in itself means that you’re already fairly courageous, but by showing just a little more bravery you will have a much easier and more enjoyable time moving into your new area. Don’t be afraid to explore. Visit new restaurants, new bars, new stores, and whatever else you can find that’s new. Most importantly, be brave and talk to strangers. Meet your neighbors, and invite them to lunch or to have a coffee with you. This will help you to not only make new friends, but also to find great restaurants, cafes, bars, and more in your area.

3.Walk

Even if you have a car, one of the best ways to travel through a new area is to walk. When you drive you are focussing on street signs, traffic lights, and trying to make sure you’re heading in the right direction to your destination. When you walk, however, you can’t help but notice what is around you. Walking through a neighborhood won’t only help you get oriented geographically, but it will also help you develop a feel for the vibe and atmosphere that different parts of town have. You can also stop and explore whenever you feel like it, which is much more difficult to do when you are driving.

 

4. Go Easy on Yourself

There’s no denying that moving to a new area can be hard. Leaving behind friends, family, and social safety nets to move into a new and different environment can be challenging and sometimes difficult. An important part of any such move is to realize that there will be hard times (especially early on) and to go easy on yourself, and those you moved with, when stressful situations arise.  Coping with the inevitable stress of moving to a new location involves taking each step one at a time, and trying not to worry about the totality of the tasks that lay ahead. Remember that challenges are a part of life, and you will overcome them (no matter how difficult they may first appear), if you take them one by one.

Moving Abroad For Business

Moving Abroad For Business

This might seem like a situation that not many people find themselves in but actually there are a number of parents working abroad without their families. Obviously, there is a reason that people choose to move away from their families and a lot of the time that motivation is financial. There are also a lot of other perks other than just the basic salary that might motivate you and a lot of these perks will help with the move.
Chances are, if there is just one of you, you won’t have enough to fill a container as these can be 1500kg compared to the 50kg maximum that you might need as an individual. Therefore, it makes more sense to have a suitcase of essentials for the three weeks it will take the rest of your belongings to be shipped out to you.
One of the likely perks is that, unless you’ve made arrangements for your residence before your move out there, you will probably be put up by your employer until you can be moved into more permanent accommodation. This could mean a hotel or it could mean a room in a flat share. Either way, it’s not bad as long as you aren’t paying for it.
The most important thing is establishing which makes the most financial sense in terms of your finances: buying all new furniture and furnishings out there or getting some shipped from home. If you are moving out to your new job without your family then it is likely that they will be staying in the family home and therefore, keeping hold of the family furnishings. This doesn’t mean that you should buy budget stuff, especially if the employer is giving you some sort of moving grant or loan. Often, even with the loans, they are repayable on something of a sliding scale so that the longer you are out there the less you have to pay back when you leave. This loan or grant might be a good opportunity for you to get better furniture so that when you return to your family you can take it back with you and replace the older family furniture.
Of course, it might be that your employer is less forthcoming but if you are in a position to be headhunted or doing them a favour in taking on this job then you are also in a position to ask for the necessary benefits of moving abroad. If you are not in this position then nevertheless you will be moving into a position where there is provided accommodation or the facilities available for accommodation – it might not be free though.

Make sure you factor in a regular number of flights home if you are moving alone.
Therefore, when moving abroad, for business, it’s all about the preparation. It’s all about the preparation when you move abroad for pleasure, of course, but getting the job is really only your first step on the journey to working abroad. There’s a lot more to it than just signing the contract and booking your flight and this article only concerns the removals. There’s also visas and residency all sorts of other things that will need considering in your big move. But it’s also new, exciting and fascinating to be working in a whole new place and all those experiences are going to be thrilling. So good luck and have fun!

The Lazy Persons’ Guide To Moving Into A New Office

The prospect of moving to a new place, a new neighborhood is almost the same as bungee jumping from an aircraft. Yes, the emotions are mixed. This holds more truth if you’re a lazy person who would want nothing more than just laze all day on that couch which needs to be cleaned and made ready to move, by the way.

Yes, your life IS difficult. And yes, you’re one of those last minute guys.

Chill out. We won’t do the moving for you, but we can certainly walk you through it; actually, cakewalk you through it. All thanks to our precious guide, you can ace the packing and moving in seven days flat!

Note of caution: some physical moving will be required. Oh come on, it’s about time.

Day 1: Be the man with a plan

Just sit there with your laptop, MacBook, smartphone or whatever you’re into, and start. Make a list- one that covers everything right from setting up the new forwarding address to utilities to packing supplies to deciding how to compartmentalize the packing. Yes it’s time consuming, but hey, it’s not that exhausting. Plus, it’ll work wonders in simplifying the rest of the move.

Day 2: Truck it out

You just cannot move everything on your own. Hire a local truck for the purpose. It’s faster and you have maximum control on things. Availability and pricing is of absolute importance. So we suggest you hire a truck the day you realize you have to move, but because you’re the lazy one, you can call them on Day 2. It’ll be more helpful if you decide to make the move on a weekday. Shop online, check reviews, call the friends and ask them to put you through a good company. In addition to everything else, make sure the trucking company gives you insurance. You can’t do anything these days without insurance. Oh and negotiate, always.

Day 3: Segregate

Divide your things into EXACTLY two things, the ones you need and the trash. That’s it; no maybes, no in-betweens. How do you decide if you really need something? Well, it’s simple; if you haven’t used it in over a year, you won’t use it again. This will cut down your packing task by a great margin, and make everything way too easier.

Day 4: More segregation

Don’t crib. Now that the first stage of the segregation is done, move further. Separate things according to their rooms, so that you can unpack them accordingly, as opposed to having to go through a treasure hunt of sorts later.

Day 5: Boxing day

When you have everything separated as per its respective room or purpose, boxing it up is amazingly easy. Just be careful with the fragile things. Whether it’s domestic or office moving, label all boxes as fragile; contents irrespective, if you want to keep them from damage. Yes, it may make you look like a mad scientist, but that’s okay. As you’re proceeding with this, bring out that checklist you made on Day 1, and cross-check. This will help you know instantly what is exactly where.

Day 6: Team Beta

You may be taking some silent satisfaction in playing one man army. However, honestly, in a moment like this no help is too much. Gather the family, the friends and anyone who’s willing to help. Delegate each one a specific task, if you will. One party handles the fragile, another carries the books, another all the electronics, while another ensures the new office is clean and ready, and also oversees the pizza delivery. Well, you get our point.

Day 7: Move!

Finally! Everything is boxed up and ready. The truck is here. The teams have taken position. Now, to the new office! Yes, this is an emotional moment. But, you’ve said your farewell. Kiss that old floor and door goodbye. Hop into the truck, crank up the radio and drive away.

What next?

Whether your new office is a few hours or days away, the one thing you should do the moment you enter is put the boxes in their designated rooms. What next? Easy. Now just sit back and enjoy the pizza! You’ve done very well so far, let’s leave the rest for another day.

The Top Mistakes People Make When Moving Home

Moving home is a rather large ordeal and one that takes a lot of time and planning. While it should of course be exciting to be moving somewhere new that will hopefully provide you with more space and/or nicer surroundings and decorating, it is also of course going to involve a lot of moving boxes, a lot of coordinating contracts, and a lot of budgeting to make things go smoothly. And this only gets a lot more stressful and complicated when something goes wrong and you find yourself with extra things to worry about. Here then we will look at some of the top mistakes people make when they move and at how you can avoid these pitfalls.

Packing Too Late:

There is nothing quite as stressful as having to pack an entire property up in a single evening or two, and if you leave packing too late then the job can be much more daunting when you finally get around to it. Much better is to start packing early so that you can do it at a leisurely pace and so that you’re all ready to go when the time comes. Designate a room for your boxes so that your packing doesn’t get in the way, the pack early.

Taking Too Much Stuff:

When you move home this is the perfect opportunity to have a ‘cull’ of your belongings and to really cut down on the things you don’t need. If you’re a hoarder this can be hard work, but actually you’ll find it’s incredibly liberating to just let go of a lot of your stuff and that it makes moving far easier. De-clutter now, and that goes for things like washing products and food – they just aren’t worth lugging around with you.

Using One Small Car:

You look around your home and think ‘there’s nothing here that won’t fit into my car’ and so you opt against using a removals company or hiring a van. In fact though when it comes down to it you’ll discover that things like your bed – even once collapsed – are not so easy to transport. To get the most from your removals van or an extra car, hire them early and pack some non-valuable items into them the night before. This way you’ll have much less clutter around the house and the first journey will be much simpler.

Having No Overlap:

Whether you’re renting or buying, it can be expensive to have an overlap between properties because it means you’ll be paying for two at the same time at some point. This might seem like a bad thing, but actually having two properties at once is very useful when it comes to moving as it will enable you to stagger your move. If you can’t organize any overlap at all on the other hand you might want to consider using a storage unit, or even a local and generous friend so that you can begin moving some of the items earlier.

Having the Wrong Containers:

The containers you use for your packing will make a big difference to every aspect of the move from the packing to the transporting. It’s very much worth investing in some heavy duty cardboard boxes then that have lids, that are well supported underneath, and that have handles. This is better than collecting free boxes from your local supermarket even if it is a bit more expensive, as the uniform nature of the boxes will mean you can stack them more easily while the handles and sizes will be designed specifically for moving home – it makes a difference.

At the same time though when it comes to other items like clothes and DVDs, don’t be above using just a black bin bag. Sure you won’t be able to stack them like this, but if the items aren’t heavy or delicate this will mean you can store lots easily and carry them around with ease too.

Not Labelling:

Labelling boxes might seem like it’s not all that important, but it can lead to problems if you find you need a book you’ve packed, or if it means you stand the delicate crockery under the books. This can help a great deal and it doesn’t take long, so just grab a pen and mark what everything is.

Making Boxes too Heavy:

What’s the worst thing to transport? It’s books right? Of course books are very heavy when combined so a case of them can be an absolute nightmare to try and shift. It needn’t be that way though – just distribute your books evenly across multiple boxes and you’ll not even notice their extra weight.

Before You Pack Up And Move Home You Should Consider These 5 Things

Can you think of anything more stressful than taking everything you own and moving into a new home? The only thing I can think of is moving home twice. You can’t close your eyes and wish for it to be over because nothing will happen, but eventually you will be relaxing with your feet up in your new home. In the mean time it’s probably a good idea to get ready for the move and we can look at a few little tasks you should do in plenty of time.

It’s time to let go

I know you love wearing your favorite cardigan, but you’ve had it for years now and it’s nearly falling apart. The same with all those tees that have finally lost their color after hundreds of washes. When you’re moving home you don’t need to take everything with you so just say goodbye. That applies to more than clothes which means all your furniture, kitchenware, and children’s toys are competing for the privilege of going with you to your new home.

The last minute rush

They call it the last minute rush because you’ll be moving so fast you don’t know what is happening. The reason you have to rush at the last minute is because you didn’t start packing things months ago. Once you start rushing around you can be sure mistakes will be made, so if you don’t want to forget anything important you shouldn’t leave everything until the very last minute. Just remember to label the boxes in case you need to get to something quickly.

Start saving materials

You can go out and spend money on boxes, but try to be sensible because they’re certainly not cheap. A better idea is to start saving boxes and newspapers months in advance and you won’t need to spend as much money. Don’t forget to let your family, friends, and neighbors know about the move because they can save materials for you too. You will probably still need a few big boxes, but a penny saved is the same as a penny earned.

Go easy on the food

Have you ever heard anyone telling you they can’t take their money to heaven? Anyone who has moved house will tell you it’s impossible to take perishable food with you and you better believe them. That means you need to think hard before you start buying food close to your move. If you don’t manage to finish it you’ll need to throw it out, but you can avoid having to waste valuable food in the first place by not buying it unless you’ll get to eat it.

Don’t open anything

If you need to open a new account or apply for a loan you should wait until you’re settled into your new home. Failure to do so could result in a few problems and it will just make your life a little harder. You will already have enough phone calls to make when you inform people of your new address. If you’re stuck in the middle of a loan application when you move into a new house the bank will not be very happy with you.

The future is bright

I’m sure you’re looking forward to moving into a fantastic new home because it’s one of the best feelings in the world, but it’s just unfortunate you can’t click your fingers and move all your possessions automatically. Take note of what we’ve spoken about today and it will save you from running around with your head in between your legs a few months from now. Don’t worry because the future is bright and the move will eventually be over.
