There is little that is more exciting than seeing your new abode going from a drawing on the table to becoming the reality that is a home. A new home! How exciting! I have switched houses 4 times in the past 30 years and I’ve always been excited about this. The possibilities are endless. My mind fills with thoughts of “where shall I keep the stereo” and “maybe that portrait would look good on this wall, after I paint it in the same colour as the sunflowers in the foreground”. Happy times.
But with great excitement comes tedious preparation. Packing up all your belongings from your old place, loading up one or more trucks carefully to make sure that nothing reaches the new place in pieces, and then the equally tiring task of unpacking.
And getting rid of those boxes!
First up is the issue of finding boxes. But the bigger issue is, what do you do once you’ve unpacked them all? There’s a handy solution for this now; you can now hire crates for moving house. Made of sturdy plastic, these hardy containers offer an easy solution to the traditional flimsy cardboard boxes where your belongings can be neatly packed in and you can be certain that the hard exterior will protect the structural integrity of your things. Many are also fitted in with wheels, which allow you to effortlessly roll them along from one location to the next; definitely a blessing for those shifting from one abode to another.
The uses need not be limited to individuals or families going in to a new home. Offices, schools, clubs, community centers, or virtually any premises that requires that a significant amount of belongings be shifted from point A to point B can make use of these strong containers.
Another important benefit that you glean when you hire crates for moving house is that you simply return the empty crates once you have unpacked your belongings. No requirements any more to find ways and means of disposing used boxes. And I’m sure for many, it would also be an incentive to actually unpack and set up in the new house as you don’t need to concern yourself with disposing these containers.
It’s now a home (or a new office)
Once the unpacking is done, and everything placed in its new spot, the structure ceases to be just a dwelling, and becomes a home. Or, to be more precise, it can be whatever you want it to be; now that your stuff has reached their location safe and sound.
