Tips On Shifting Items In A Kitchen During A Move


So your shifting house and you reach your kitchen and have that confused look on your face? A kitchen is an area of your house with the maximum number of appliances at hand. Such an area surely presents a challenge while shifting even with experienced movers and packers. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind while shifting your kitchen these will ensure a safe and convenient move.

The biggest and the heaviest of all would have to be your refrigerator. It is very important to completely defrost your fridge with care also essential is the cleaning part which should be done carefully. Always remember to completely empty your refrigerator of all leftover food items and drinks, having such things in transit may create a fowl odor in your fridge which will surely take a long time to leave. Secondly unplug all electrically operated appliances if you are leaving any behind to be picked up later, doing this saves electricity and helps the movers who come in later to pull out things without any hazards. Lastly, make a checklist of all the items in the kitchen by checking each and every drawer making sure that nothing is been missed out and then packing them in conveniently in different boxes.

Is Your Living Room Really A Living Room?


A living room is a place to meet and greet people when they enter our homes. Apart from being an entertaining room, it also serves as a reading room and a room where the family can sit and talk. Almost every one of us living in an apartment or a house has one designed right in. Initially after moving house we keep it neat and tidy but then soon enough, as the work cycle begins and everyone is busy with their daily lives, convenience kicks in. ‘Convenience’ in the form of laziness which forces us to keep things that we normally store elsewhere, closer to us for easier access.

Slowly and steadily you will find everything piling up around the couch and the armchairs. Books, magazines, photo albums, and a whole lot of other items some of which we do not even need. And the result is horrid. In such a situation the best thing to do is get up and start piling up the things you really would need (which is none) from the ones that you do. If you really need that old lamp around but don’t use it everyday, get a storage unit and keep it over there so you can pick it up when you change the d├ęcor of your home or if your house gets renovated. That tiny old antique drawer that made its way next to the couch can also be put in storage. Keeping things at a distance keeps us active, while having everything at hand makes us lazy and lethargic.

The Box, a storage facility in Abu Dhabi is a perfect place to store unused items, be it furniture to sporting equipment, to piles of old magazines, our climate controlled units are equipped to handle all your storage needs. To get more details log on to www.storageinabudhabi.com

Transporting Crockery For The Do-It-Yourselfer


Most of us at least one point in time have moved house. Well one thing that usually ends up breaking most of the time is crockery. Usually made of fine porcelain, some even have large collections of fine crockery at home. Such crockery is pretty expensive some even being antiques, so it’s a pretty pricey affair if something cracks breaks or gets scratched while transporting these expensive items while moving house.

Here are some tips to help out the do-it-yourselfer. Firstly ensure that every item in the box should not rub against the other to avoid this, always stuff in some sort of insulation in the form of paper or packaging insulation that you can buy easily from our Box Shop. Wrap saucers and plates up in at least two layers to avoid unnecessary scratches and damage. Secondly make sure that if an item belongs to a set, put them together in a box to avoid confusion and misplacing them while unpacking. We get a lot of complaints from customers who have packed things themselves and not found the same items while unpacking just to end up finding them in another carton. Thirdly, make sure that all items that are placed in the right size containers the last thing you want is a set of delicate porcelain rattling in a large box. Lastly, make sure delicate items like glass and porcelain are always marked with a sticker saying ‘Fragile’ with an arrow indicating which side is up.

The Box is a progressively driven moving and relocation company in Abu Dhabi. We provide everything from storage units for temporary storage to packaging materials such as bubble wrap, tape guns and boxes of all sizes for moving and shifting at The Box Shop. They even conduct professional office and house removals in Abu Dhabi as per the clients request and convenience.
