Many people try to save on costs when moving into a new home or office by asking friends to help them move, or by hiring a truck, or asking someone who owns one to help them out for a small reward such as a 6-pack. You may think these options could save you money in the short term, but they are likely to cost more in the long run. How?
- You cannot really trust anyone other than professional removalists like Removalists Perth to get it right. For starters, they are not likely to know how to pack your goods into their truck in a way that will stop them from moving. Scrapes and dents on your favourite pieces of furniture are likely and fragile treasures may get broken beyond repair.
- A non-removalist will not have the right insurance, so if anything gets broken you will have to pay the cost of repair or replacement yourself. And what happens if they are involved in an accident enroute to your new home? Most of your furniture will end up broken and you will have to pay for that, too. You may also have to pay for medical costs or truck repairs.
- If they are doing a freebie for you and suddenly a paying job shows up, they may ‘forget’ your deal and leave you without a truck at the last minute. It is almost impossible to hire a professional removalist at short notice, so your moving day and organisation will be thrown into disarray.
- A friend won’t be able to supply the correct packing boxes or offer extra services such as wrapping, carpet cleaning and packing like most professional removalists do.
For many years the only carpet cleaning products available were toxic chemicals. That was before people realised just how bad they were for the environment, not to mention the people who worked with them. It took longer for anyone to realise that such chemicals were also bad for those who used the room afterwards.
Unlike eco friendly carpet cleaning products, the fumes from chemical cleaners caused breathing problems, skin rashes and allergies. The ingredients in some chemicals are also known as carcinogenic, which means they are linked to causing cancer in some way. This in itself is a good reason to choose a professional carpet cleaner who uses environmentally friendly products to clean your carpet.
Whether you are deciding on the interior design of a new home or redesigning an existing one, the bedroom tends to be the room that gets pushed to the back of the queue. It is understandable given that the living room is the main room of the house and others like the bathroom and kitchen generally require a fair degree of remodelling.
Nevertheless, if you are in design mode remember that the bedroom is where you are likely to spend a third of your time when you are at home, so its design warrants some careful thought.
The first consideration is whether you share your bedroom with someone else such as a spouse or partner. If you do, then before you even so much as pick a pillowcase, you need to discuss the design with them. Now it could be they are happy to sit back and tell you that they’re willing to let you choose everything, and at first, this may seem a perfect scenario. However, you can bet your bottom dollar there will be something that you pick that they won’t approve of.
