FRIDAY FREEBIE: MOVING TIP: Shuttle Vehicle
Shuttle Vehicle at origin or destination
In today’s times a large section of the population reside within complexes, estates which are very secure for residents but does not always bode well for accessibility of large vehicles such as a household moving truck and trailer.
It is very important that when a person is relocating homes that they check the access points both at origin and destination and advise the removal company accordingly.
There is understandably an additional charge as there is now a second driver and a second vehicle required to transload the furniture from the large vehicle onto the smaller vehicle (tonnage dependent on complex / estate vehicle maximum tonnage allowed). There are inherent risks with this process as the furniture must now go through a double handling process at either collection or delivery points.
The shuttle process is a regular dynamic of the removal process within Cape Town as many of the older suburban areas have narrow streets, cul – de – sacs and streets with overhanging trees. All these factors must be taken into account and is the responsibility of the movee to inform the removal company accordingly. Not only will this assist you the movee with budgeting and avoiding unknown additional costs but will also allow the removal company to adequately plan your removal in terms of timing, vehicle requirements and labour to ensure a smooth relocation process.

“Life. This morning the sun made me adore it. It had, behind the dripping pine trees, the oriental brightness, orange and crimson, of a living being, a rose and an apple, in the physical and ideal fusion of a true and daily paradise.”

The dust is starting to settle as we settle into our new digs. Not going to lie, these past few weeks have been a weee bit stressful as we not only moved half our home into our rental and the other half into a large storage container, but also moved two home businesses at the same time 🙃🤪. Now that we’re done the heavy lifting it’s time to breathe. Just take a moment and give myself the grace to get re-centred and back to routine. Even got my butt back to the gym today! 💪🏼. In times of stress, girlfriend give yourself the space to breeeeeeeathe! Don’t worry that you didn’t post on Insta, or get to the Facebook live... get your immediate needs met, and when you’re ready reboot and get back on track! 🙌🏼.
Who’s with me on this?! Let’s hear from you sisters!! .

9 TIPS FOR AN ORGANISED OFFICE REMOVAL
Our office removals service has been assisting businesses moving from one office, to their next one.
Plan in advance: Depending on the complexity of your IT systems, the size of your office and the amount of furniture you need to move, begin planning at least 10 weeks in advance. Create a list of tasks, the date they need to be carried out and by whom.
Prepare your team: Let your team know in advance so they will feel prepared for the big day. It’s a big change for them as well as for you. They need time to prepare themselves and factor in possible extra transport costs, along with starting to organise their belongings.
Maintain productivity: Adopt a ‘business as usual’ approach. If you are organised, there’s nothing stopping you carrying on with work right up until the move.
Update your details: Make sure that all current and potential clients / customers know you are moving premises. Get your business cards updated, along with the contact details on your website and social media profiles. You may think that’s pretty obvious but in the chaos of moving, it can be overlooked.
Delegate tasks: Clearly delegate responsibilities to different staff members or department managers in advance of the moving date. Many hands make light work.
Prioritise: Larger, more valuable items may need to be transported before others. And setting things up like your IT system and phone-lines means your employees can begin working in your new premises as soon as furniture is relocated.
Label furniture: Make sure that all furniture is appropriately labelled to correspond with its intended location and, if necessary, the staff member that it belongs to. Any boxes should also be labelled to indicate their contents. Choose different colours of labels for each workstation or office to identify quickly and easily where each item will be located.
Follow the floor plan: Before you move anything, grab the floor plan and start measuring items. Where is everything going to go? Will it fit? And what about the number of power points
