Talking about moving out of your childhood home can bring tears to your eyes. It’s undoubtedly emotionally laborious. But that doesn’t overshadow the fact that it’s physically arduous as well!
The heartbreak isn’t the only risk involved in moving out of your home. It’s literally a backbreaking process—you can seriously injure yourself! Don’t turn your back to essential safety measures while moving out or you can even risk fracturing a bone or two.
Worst of all, there’ll be no warning or indication of a potential danger until it happens and you’re down with a twisted ankle or muscle cramps. You want to move into your new home in the best shape and that’s why it’s better you know about these safety risks.
You might think that it’s easy to move a chest of drawers yourself but think again. Are you prepared for any accident that might occur during the process?
Think back to the time when you stubbed your small toe against the bed and shrieked in pain. Now imagine what it would feel like to have heavy furniture fall on your foot?
You don’t even want to imagine that. This is why we urge you to let us handle the hectic job. Your safety is important to us.
(Almost) Fatal Falls
If your apartment is on the third or fourth story of the building and the boxes can’t be moved via the elevator, you’ll need to take the stairs. This is a high-risk job—especially for someone who’s not trained in balancing heavy objects while descending.
You don’t want to suffer a fall down a flight of stairs head-first and also have the object hit you next. That’s a formula for disaster. Let professionals carry it for you.
Sprains and Cuts
When moving out, you can injure yourself in more serious ways. You have to deal with a lot of sharp objects such as cutlery as well as fragile things such as glass table tops.
Accidentally scratching yourself with a knife or piercing your skin with a shard of glass can cause major injuries. It can get dangerous if it’s not treated and bandaged properly on time.
And sweat and blood is not all you lose while moving. You can sprain your ankles and your back if you don’t take precautions.
If you have toddlers in the family, you’ll need to be extra careful while packing. Babies, during the ages of 6 to 12 months have a habit of putting everything in their mouths. From pins, to bottle caps, bits of paper or any small object—everything can go in the baby’s mouth! And needless to say, this is the biggest health hazard that is there.
Sharp objects can pierce the soft flesh inside their mouth and cause bleeding. Other objects can be potential choking hazards. We can help save your child from enduring such medical problems. Allow us to do the job while you care for your child.
