  2. Hi guys, I would just like to share about my recent moving experience with Trusted Moving Services. Despite it being a really busy job, all the movers especially the one by the name of ''Pek" were moving rlly quickly and efficiently. Besides that, they were all very hardworking and polite which provides me with great confidence in them that they will definitely finish my job on time. I would actually admit that it wasn't a really easy job as I discussed with their manager ( Keith ) if it was possible to have the whole moving finished within a shorter time frame as my wife as been nagging to me about the auspicious hour..... Here I would rlly like to give them a huge shoutout to show my huge appreciation for having them as my mover. By the way, this mover was recommended to me by a colleague of mine. If any of you are interested in giving them some support and business, I will leave their contact number down below. Kudos to Trusted Moving Services ! ( Keith, 97101153 ) or ( trustedmovingservices@gmail.com )
  3. If your home is like mine, you will have many shelves with lots of books that you have to pack and move. While I always recommend removing anything that you do not use or do not need, books are things that I have a hard time giving away. But when packing books that I want to keep and move, there are several ways to pack them. This guide will guide you through three different book packing methods recommended by the university library in the town where I live. Each day they pack and send hundreds of books across the country. Sort and exit the book If you travel long distances, hire people, and are being charged by weight, make sure you read the book carefully and determine what you want to keep and pay for it. Very heavy books. Even paperback books can add a lot of money. And if you are like me, you tend to accumulate a lot in a short time, so find a good home for them and know that someone will get pleasure from reading them as you did. Use the Box on the right Once you've decided you're moving, pick an average box and check to make sure it holds the weight and it's not wet, especially if it's a used box. While I'm a big fan of packaging with the box used, when it comes to books, you want to make sure the box is solid, will hold the weight and not have any dampness that could harm the book. You can visit http://www.thuexetai.info/ for more packing tips. You also need to pack the tape to seal the bottom and top boxes and a marker marking the contents of the box. Prepare the box to pack If you buy a new box, you will need to place them first. Make sure you stamp the bottom by doubling the amount of tape. If you are using a recycling box, I always tape the bottom of the package to make sure it will hold. How to bind cardboard Hardcover editions can be packaged by placing them in a vertical box, the spinal column on the side of the box, just as you put it on the shelf. If you book this way, make sure they are well packaged, but not too tight so that they can be damaged when you remove them. If hardcover editions are of fair value, package each package on the wrapper before placing it in the box. Books of great value, such as old photo albums or first edition, require the hardcover between each compartment to keep spikes straight and to prevent any movement. Each book should also be protected by paper and placed in a cushion box. Bubble bags or wrapping paper can be used to queue up boxes before you pack each book. How to Pack Paperbacks Hardcover editions, as well as cardboard, can also be packaged flat and stacked. Both kinds of books can also be packaged with the first spine with paper edges up. To avoid spoilage, do not bind the book with the edges of the paper protruding and folding - this will cause the book to bend and to bend. Books can also be packaged using all three methods in one box. Just make sure you do not close the book at strange angles. Finally, use a sheet of paper to fill the remaining space. Books can move easily during the move, causing damage. Protect the box Tape canned and labeled "book". In the moving truck, do not stack the boxes unless you can secure them. Again, the book is heavy, and if the boxes should topple, they can cause a lot of damage to furniture or other items that are not well protected. Long Book Archives If you need to store books for any length of time, make sure the repository is dry and cool. And if your books are high on value, you may want to use acid-free paper instead of paper packaging. Acid-free paper will not get damaged or turn yellow over time.

  6. From the album: Downsizing Before You Move

    Many people think they should take everything to their new place when moving their home because they are convinced all those things will be useful and don't want to let them go, but they forget about the benefits of downsizing: the less household items they take, the less time for packing, less money spent on storage supplies, so on and so forth. Check out this infographic that shows the reasons why you should consider downsizing while moving.

  8. Shifting is never ever an easy process. Whether it’s the big move of yours or you want to shift locally, considering the task to be an easy one can become one of the biggest mistakes of your life. It takes your precious time as well as required energy to pack and move your things efficiently from a place to another. One of the absolute best investments you can make, and most accurate, to prepare for your move is to do an in-home moving estimate. Having the estimate is essential for you as it will aid you in knowing how much the move is going to cost and will also be helpful in developing the moving budget. And the best part of in home estimate is it is absolutely free. It will not cost you anything from you nor does the process require much. But the result will definitely help you in moving sensibly and according to your budget too. We are mentioning here few tips that would help you in getting the most appropriate in house estimate. Start Early: The early you begin the more chances of success will be there. Planning for your move is itself a stressful task and if you will wait for the process till the last minute then definitely you will be trapped under worse situation. The best thing you can do is to plan ahead as best as you can to save yourself from having to scramble last minute. If you are moving with packers and movers then don’t hesitate to call them for an accurate estimate of your move so that you can proceed accordingly. Clear Ideas: You are supposed to be through during the estimate time. Know exactly what needs to be moved, and this is something that only you can do.The best way to do it is to make a checklist and accordingly cross check it to ensure that you are only moving with the things that are of great value to you. Your detailed checklist will help you stay organized during your move and ensure that when you have an in-home estimate specialist visit you will know everything that needs to be packed. Fragile Items: Shifting your things is a big risk and it is because of the complex objects with which you are moving to the next destination. Make a list of the fragile items and also about their value. This estimate will not only assist you but will also help you to get compensation from the mover in case there is some damage. If anything requires special packing or handling it is important to note this to your in-home estimate specialist. Point out any larger items such as beds, dressers, musical equipment, etc. These are the most important points that will aid you in calculating the in house estimate. It is a great idea to calculate the estimate of your moving beforehand so that you can tally the estimate of packers and movers(gurgaon) and make out whether you are charged genuinely or not.
  9. I wish to share my moving experience about Yong Shen best mover. I was recommended by my Cousin he told me Yong Shen did the moving for his company, their movers are very experience and professional. They completed the 4 truck move in about 5hrs. The supervisors is very friendly and the movers is very cooperative when they move whatever his boss told them. My Cousin also told me the company were invited to the channel 8 program. But I also saw some bad comment about the company and after discussing with my husband, we like to give a try to their moving service. On the moving day, they come with 2 truck and 6 movers as like my Cousin say they were very fast. The movers wraps everything at the trolley and start to load up to the truck, before going to my new house they told us to see the truck it is completely fully load. The supervisor explains they base on truck load, so it is important to show customers the truck is it fully load to prevent misunderstanding. After finish the move the supervisor told us to write a comment to get the promo discount. I am very happy with their moving services that I have paid $800 for the move and I have no regrets using them thanks to Yong Shen best movers recommend
  10. "It’s a busy day at work but I can’t stop thinking about my entire place waiting to be sorted. I’m moving out this weekend and I don’t even know what to pack first. No one’s gonna be there to help me move. Should I rent a lorry and move my stuff on my own or should I just hire a mover? Grrr, not again. What am I gonna do with this wardrobe and my single bed? I don’t need them anymore but I gotta pay to throw them away? Unbelievable. I should give it to Salvation Army…what, it will take them a month to pick it up? Why is it so hard to donate furniture in Singapore?" This is exactly how the pressure of moving gets to me, almost every year. In 12 years of living here, I’ve moved 8 times. I lost count on the number of movers, property agents, and owners who tried to cut corners at my expense. I wish you never had to go through this but if you’re an immigrant who calls Singapore home, an exchange student or simply living on your own, this would sound all too familiar. If there’s only one thing that I learned that made moving a lot easier, it’s this: LIGHTEN UP. Get rid of everything you hardly use; old stuff that you no longer need. It’s gonna cost to bring them to your new place and it’s gonna cost to throw them away. So don’t. There are good people out there who will be happy to take stuff you no longer need. You can donate it to someone on Free Loved Furniture group or post it on a recycling community, Freevo Nation, to clear it fast and free of charge. The point of all these is to make someone happy; yourself. Moving to a new place is supposed to be an exciting thought! Now breathe in, breathe out, you got this.

  14. Hi everyone! My name is Jonah and I'm the principal photographer for All Aflutter (http://tobuildahome.sg); note that the website is still under construction and we're still uploading content to it. A quick FAQ on our project: What is To Build A Home (TBAH)? TBAH is a photography and videography project under the SG50 Celebration Fund that documents fresh home-owners moving into their homes for the first time. We want to show the customs and traditions that accompany the move-in as a way to engage and educate the audience, as well as highlight Singapore's rich melting pot of cultures and ethnicities. As a new home-owner myself, I was very intrigued by the intricate customs performed during the move-in, which I didn't know about until I was gently educated by my elders (mother-in-law, really), and I thought that it would be something very intriguing and unique to Singapore. I wanted to explore the meaning and significance of those customs. Who can join? Anyone who is moving into a new home - we don't want to limit it to only young, married couples moving into their new flat, but also explore Singaporeans of every stripe. We want to tell stories that highlight the diversity of our cultures and present the meaning behind the customs and traditions practiced by people moving into their homes for the first time. Instead of a nostalgic type of project, we want to do something that is forward-looking instead Do I have to pay anything? Short answer - no. As we're partially funded by MCCY under the Fund, there won't be any monetary costs on your end if you would like to participate. We would do a pre-interview together with you and your partner, and find out a little more about you and your new home. If needed, we'll arrange a meeting, probably at your new place, to discuss the shoot in detail and fill you in on what's going to be involved. We'll tag along on your official move-in date (when you would carry out the customs or traditions, such as throwing of the pineapple, to name one) and document the process, and do a few portraits along the way as well! What do I get from this project? We'll put together a little memento from the shoot - such as a portrait photo print - and any digital images we would take from the shoot. If you want some photos of your pristine home with all your lovely decor and furniture, just let us know and we can provide them for you as well. I'm in! Where do I start? You can send an email to jean.goh@allaflutter.sg or call me at 9726-1-726 to indicate your interest, and we'll get things started from there. We can also show you documentation/proof of our official appointment and approval by MCCY to show that we're not scammers or upselling you stuff you don't want or need. We look forward to hearing from you! Jonah Sun Principal Photographer All Aflutter
  15. I used Hometown Moving Services on my 7th time of moving house, and I now regret that I didn’t use another mover just because of a mere $100 difference. I chanced upon icompare.sg, a website that promises to offer multiple quotations for 1 enquiry. I signed up and asked it to recommend a moving company. Strangely, it only recommended me one, and that was Hometown Moving Services. When I requested for more through the website, I didn't receive any more replies or recommendations. It was only later that I learnt from the mover boss, Jeffrey, that he is on very good terms with the staff in the referral company, sigh. I went ahead with Hometown Moving Services since it was recommended and the price was right. Jeffrey assured me that they are an established company since 1984 with a Facebook page. I went into their Facebook page and thought I hired a cheap & reliable company after reading it. The moving plus miscellaneous charges (excluding deposit for boxes) would work out to be $900 for up to three 14 footer containers. That is where my nightmare started. On 8th January, the Hometown movers came late by over one and half hour, attributing it to a CBD jam. Unluckily for me, it rained heavily in the afternoon. As mine is a condo, moving has to be finished by 5pm. My husband pleaded with the condo management to extend till 6.30pm for us. Hometown managed to move two containers of stuff to my new house. When I came back from work to my new house, I was horrified to see my coffee table and two of my cabinets scratched. These were bought and moved into the original house two years ago at a cost of close to $5000. When they were relocated by Hometown’s movers, they acquired long scratches at the sides and front which were very obvious. These didn’t look like accidental bumps; it was more like the furniture had been roughly dragged across a surface. It really made my heart ache as these are my prized pieces that I took a long time to hunt for. Naturally I started complaining and making noise while the movers were still fitting the furniture; because it wasn’t just one piece, three of my precious wooden furniture got scratched. I unwittingly uttered a word ‘stupid’ in a fit of anger. Suddenly, one worker confronted me and yelled at me “why you call me stupid?”. I was in shock, I never expected a worker to shout in my face, when the word wasn’t directed to anyone in particular (I was just expressing my dismay at the unfortunate situation). My usual way of letting out frustration is uttering words like s-h-i-t, stupid, seow, faint ah, goondoo etc. I believe most of us have this habit. But he insisted I called him stupid, he turned very aggressive and kept scolding me, in the end, we ended up quarrelling. He also accused me of calling him ‘bastard’ when I actually said ‘basket’ (another reflexive swear word). He stormed off and told his supervisor. His supervisor wasn’t any nicer, he told me I should say sorry; he even rudely asked how a mother could behave in this way in front of her children, telling me he was a father and he would not show such example. Well, this time round, I did ‘apologise’, but in an angry manner because I can’t believe that I was being featured as someone bad in front of my child. I just wanted to end the episode of senseless squabbling … I shouted ‘sorry’ a few times back to the worker with my hand waving out to him. Suddenly the supervisor shook his fists several times right in front of my face, and shouted at me, “Is this the way you say sorry?”. My god, I shook my hand at a distance at the worker, he shook his fists right in my face, almost hitting me and yelling at me at the same time. I was very angry, my furniture had been damaged and the workers were close to physically assaulting me. I called up the boss, Jeffrey, and said I was not paying till Hometown finished moved the third container on the next day. I was worried they would mess up my things or cause further damage as we were now in conflict with each other. Jeffrey promised he would get his carpenter to restore the furniture. I seriously doubted that they can look as good again, but is there any choice? Jeffrey said the workers were hired on a daily rate, so they need to be paid on the spot after moving. He promised me he would give me a new team the next day, thus I paid. I was told to pay cash to the workers, but I was not told earlier by Jeffrey so I had to make a trip to the ATM to withdraw cash. That has never happened in any of my previous moving, where I had just issued cheques. Despite the damages caused by Hometown and the conflict that had just transpired, I paid as I would not short-change the other workers due to the bad attitudes of the two that quarrelled with me. I began to suspect that Hometown uses ad-hoc workers that are inexperienced in moving, as I have never suffered so badly damaged furniture before in my previous seven times of moving house. On the next day, Hometown Moving Services caused another horrifying experience. This time, the new parquet flooring in my children’s room was badly scratched in a few areas, one of my fan’s blades was broken, my storeroom shelving was left outside my house, and my small cabinet was missing. The Hometown movers did not heed my maid’s instructions to move the boxes to the right places. In fact, they put some in wrong places and we have to carry and move the heavy boxes to the right rooms. Out of plain laziness, they didn’t dismantle the two metal shelves in the rental house; they just carried and moved them to my new house and then said one could not fit into the storeroom, so they put one shelf inside the store and left one in my corridor. That night, my hubby and I had to dismantle it and then reassemble it inside the storeroom. It took us a whole morning as we are not apt in handling such work. I called up Jeffrey and asked why he given me the same team, he told me the other team cannot find available time to move house. He complained one of his men got badly hurt while moving my bunk bed. Gosh, it is as if my furniture is to be blamed for hurting his worker! If I have been informed earlier that day about having the same team, I would have taken a day’s leave and make sure everything is done satisfactorily. Jeffrey was aware of my concern about having the same team, but he still put in the same team without my knowledge. When I complained about Hometown damaging my new parquet, he promised he would get his carpenter to fix my flooring and damaged furniture at one go. Today is 24 January, it has been 16 days since we moved. Jeffrey has scheduled two appointments for his carpenter to come to my house; for these two times, I took leave because I really wanted to see my precious furniture properly restored and for two times the carpenter didn’t come and Jeffrey failed to inform me. When I sent an angry SMS, he messaged my husband that I threatened him. I admit, I threatened to post a negative review in his company’s Facebook and complain to the referrer (icompare.sg). Unsurprisingly, Hometown Moving Services’ Facebook page has disappeared completely; that is why I decide to post in forums to warn people of this terrible company. Jeffrey kept saying he is responsible, or else he wouldn’t complete moving my house on the second day. Gosh, I didn’t know I need to be grateful that a mover move the rest of my furniture on the next day if they cannot complete moving in one day due to the rain. It is their responsibility to finish a paid job regardless of unforeseen circumstances! When I told him the moving issues in my house, Jeffrey lamented about Hometown’s problems. If he thinks he is not making money moving my house, then don’t take up the job. Jeffrey said he can’t give a definite date for the carpenter because ‘it is a favour’ and it is not included in the moving package. Now he makes it seem that I need to patiently wait for him to get a favour to restore the furniture that HIS movers damaged, so again I should be grateful ... even though the carpenter has never come as promised. Jeffrey said the damages are accidents unavoidable in moving. In my seven times of moving, nothing of this sort has happened before. Only once has my children’s bunk bed not been fitted properly, and even so, the moving company responsibly sent someone to rectify that promptly. If it is damage on one piece of furniture, I could just dismiss it as an accident, but it happened on TWO long cabinets AND my coffee table. There must be something terribly wrong with their moving technique. My master and third bedroom’s parquet were not scratched with the first day moving, but why on the second day, my second room’s parquet had suffered so many scratches caused by the SAME team after the squabbling incident. Jeffrey kept saying his movers are experienced, but experienced movers would not drag my heavy massage chair to test if it was working. I mentioned I wanted to discard the massage chair, so they could have tested it out to see if it could be salvaged for themselves. That is okay but the way they dragged the chair to the power point left two long lines across the marble flooring of the living room in the rental house. Headache! I requested time and again on the moving day that they discard three big items in the rental house but Hometown did not want to do so as they said they were short of time. In the end, I have to pay much more to get another moving company to remove them 2 days later. My advice, NEVER get a mover simply because it is cheap. And avoid icompare.sg if you need recommendations. Check if the moving company has insurance. Jeffrey told me it was not necessary to keep cost competitive but I learnt my lesson painfully. My furniture, fan and new flooring got damaged, I had fists flying literally centimetres from my face for the first time of my life and I was accused of threatening when I got angry that he never keeps his promises. Has he realised who is the one being victimised and threatened from the beginning? Where is the customer’s rights? You won’t find it in Hometown Moving Services. Jeffrey hinted that I should have a heart for the underprivileged and he says ‘who wants to be movers’. I do charities, but on occasions deemed appropriate. When I move house, I want professionals; sorry to say, but I can’t afford hiccups and I can’t deal with ‘rough ‘people when things happen. I shiver at the thought of being aggressively confronted by two male workers in my own house. I thought local movers are better, and I have always supported local workers; I was wrong, they are not necessarily better as some lack the right attitude. If only I knew that Jeffrey is a smooth talker, an ‘armchair boss’ employing underqualified movers that cannot handle my furniture properly. He twists everything I say to make it sound as if I, the victim, is in the wrong. Here is our SMS conversations and photos of my furniture, you can be the judge. http://postimg.org/gallery/27pcogsas/

  19. Hi there! I am looking for some advice. I am moving to a much smaller place and need to leave behind 30 pots of plants. They are big (large Eugenia trees) and small (Thomatacaucus). I am considering hiring a disposal service to throw all of them away. However, I feel a bit sad that they would just become garbage. Any ideas on what I could do with them? Maybe Nurseries that would accept them? Thanks!
