It goes without saying that there are some bits of furniture that are just a disaster to move. From worrying about how to pack them, how to wrap them, how to prevent them from scratching, to the biggest problem, how to prevent the from breaking.

So what are some tricks to getting those hard to move objects moved?

The fish. Yes, these are one of the hardest things to move. Not the fish itself, but the entire aquarium. Made of glass and subject to shifting, this is one of the things that you just can’t afford to break. After all, where will the fish live when you’re finally in your new apartment or home. You’d hate to have to run out to get a hold of a new aquarium, set it up and go through all that after having done so much more throughout the day. Once you’re in your new place, you want to be able to kick back and relax a bit, before tackling the unpacking in the coming days.

Here’s how to transport your fish tank:

  • Don’t feed fish for 24 hours before transporting them.
  • Remove your fish from the tank and store them in a bag that contains water from the fish tank. Leave 2/3 of the fish bag empty, this should then be filled with air.
  • Store the fish in their fish bags in a cooler. This way you will keep them at the right temperature and because of how dark it will be inside the cooler, your fish will move around less and therefore use less energy.
  • Wrap the aquarium with a protective cloth. If you still have the original packaging it may be a good idea to put the aquarium back in and tape it securely for transportation.
  • Be sure to transport your fish in your vehicle rather than in the moving truck.

Because you love your plants and you’ve spent countless amounts of time caring for them and ensuring that the grow healthy and tall, you’d be devastated if something were to happen to them during your move.

Here is how to transport them:

  • Switch their pot to a plastic one, a week or so before you are scheduled to move.
  • When moving in Sydney rather than taking a longer trip, there shouldn’t be too much pressure on your plants and thus being able to transport them will be a lot easier.
  • Transport plants in your car rather than in the moving truck.
  • Be sure to leave enough room so that you won’t have other boxes falling on them.

Art is one of those things that can be exceptionally hard to move and can cause a lot of heartache during the moving process. Rather than subjecting your art to rips and tears or other damages that may be caused during a move, be sure to package properly and take the proper precautions so that it will get there in one piece, just the way you want it.

Here is how to transport art:

Bubble wrap and newspaper will be your best friend when it comes to transporting art. For all things that are framed, be sure to wrap each corner properly and add enough support to the areas made of glass. Cut a cardboard box in pieces and cover the back and sides and tape tightly. Once this is done, all your artwork can be stored together in a bigger box where all the spaces are filled with bubble wrap and newspaper.

Television.

There are two ideal ways to package your television for a move. You can either return it to the box it came in, ensuring that it is packed in tightly, or you can wrap it in a blanket. When wrapping in a blanket, stand the television on top of the blanket and then wrap it around your television and tape securely.
