Top Reasons Why Moving House is the Worst

Let’s face it, moving house is number one on a hypothetical list of the most stressful occasions we will ever face in our life. In fact, it can be such hard work that many of us will do anything to avoid the hassle that comes with packing up and relocating. From landlords raising the rent to troublesome youths, sometimes it takes a lot to get moving. Here at Jacksons Removals, we sympathise with our clients and understand how hard the ordeal can be. In this blog, we’re going to go over our top reasons why moving house is downright awful…

  • For some reason we forget how much junk we actually accumulate over the years and when it comes to packing for a house move, the sheer load of items can be quite daunting. You’ll find the children’s old drawings, clothes from a decade ago and perhaps even some spare change- however having the motivation to pack all your belongings can be quite a challenge.
  • The one thing we always forget to do is change our address in advance so that we don’t continue to mither the old landlord or new tenants for access to our mail, however trying to remember how many companies we have to call in order to organise this can be time consuming and exhausting.

The team here at Jacksons Removals hate seeing clients stressed which is why we try our best to make it the smoothest move they will ever accomplish! The way we see it is a stressed client is an unhappy client and at the end of your move, we want you to be overjoyed!

The Terminology of a Moving Company

Moving can be stressful enough without having to constantly decode the language and terminology that is being used within the industry itself. The team here at Jacksons Removals are able to admit that sometimes we forget the terms we use may not be familiar to the clients we are helping to pack up and move. In this blog, we’re going to go over a handful of the terms we use so that you are able to keep up to date when it comes to your move…

Transportation Charges – These are the costs that a moving company charges for transporting your belongings in the back of the van or truck and makes up the main cost of your whole move.

Inventory – A written or typed list of all the belonging and goods that will be moved. It should include how many of each item and the condition of it so that any unintentional damages can be recorded and documented.

Shuttle Service – The use of much smaller vehicles which are able to provide removal services to areas which are not able to be accessed by the regular van or trucks.

Now you know some of the terms we use, it’s time to book in your own removal service. After all, as the best removals in Wirral, its only right that we help our clients stay up to date and ensure that they feel fully included in the process of their removal.

How to Make Moving Fun

Moving house or office is rarely recognised as a fun activity. In fact, many people consider moving house a one way ticket to stress valley with no end date in sight. Here at Jacksons Removals, we think that moving should never be a gruelling task and while it definitely won’t be as luxurious as a spa trip, there’s certainly a few ways to make it more exciting. Here are a couple..

  • Though it seems like a waste of time, make a playlist to pack and unpack your belongings to. By separating your upbeat tunes into a particular place, you will be able to ensure that your motivation levels remain high. In fact, psychologists suggest that our brains respond better when we have designated music for a task. For example, people with a gym playlist are known to have a better workout than those who just listen the radio.


  • You don’t have to use large boxes all the time! Not only do they take ages to unpack, they tend to be heavy and harder to move around. Smaller boxes are your friends and will make packing much easier to negotiate. Plus, every time you unpack one it will feel like you’ve scored yourself a little win in the whole process of unpacking and, psychologically, we feel like we are getting somewhere rather than constantly looking into the bottomless pit of a large box that never seems to empty!

The team here at Jacksons Removals have one goal in mind – make your moving a stress-free occasion! Now you know how to make the whole experience fun, get in contact with the best removals Liverpool has to offer today!

The Lowdown on Pallet Wrap

Here at Jackson’s Removals, we work tirelessly to ensure that your items and belongings reach their destination in the same condition that we picked them up in. After all, you are hiring a removal company to take care of your things, not break them. Our team employ a range of different techniques in order to ensure the safety of your stuff and in this blog, we’re going to go over one in particular called pallet wrap…

Pallet wrap comes in handy when clients are concerned about the safety of items in a van that are going to be moved and offers an extra layer of protection in order to ensure that they will reach the final location intact. Although many people confuse it with shrink wrap, there is a very distinct difference between the two materials. Pallet wrap is a type of plastic film that has a stretching ability and is used either by hand or via a machine to ‘wrap’ items up.

It is commonly seen being used to wrap up multipack cans of fizzy pop, however the team here at Jacksons Removals use it in order to cling together items that we deem too sensitive to movement as we want our clients to feel like their belongings are in safe hands.

From placing blankets over large heavy duty items such as wardrobes to treating fragile items like the most important thing in the world, we do everything we can to ensure that breakables like TV’s, ornaments and kitchen equipment are as safe as possible.
