If a garbage truck is able to access the street, a removal truck is also able to do so. In some cases road blocks such as posts have to be removed, a street needs to be closed down or the municipality needs to arrange a traffic redirection.
Do you live above a shop or in a shopping area? Than in most cases a no parking rule applies and loading and unloading can only be done in the morning. A solution is to start early so that the moving company is finished before the shops are open. Discuss this with the moving company, they are experienced in this.
Do you live in a busy street? Consult with your neighbors on forehand and tell them about your move and that the removal truck might be in front of their house to and can be of some nuisance. Try to reserve three parking spots in front of the house for the truck. It saves time and money if the movers don’t have to walk unnecessary. Also in bad weather conditions it’s necessary to park the truck close to the entrance of the house.

In principal everything that could fit in a box should be moved in a box. Books, tableware etc. is obvious but also larger items such as vases, a tennis racket, posters, small planks, small mirrors etc. can best be packed in a move box.Why?
First of all a move box protects. The risk of damage is reduced. But second and even as important is that a move box can be easily transported. It’s much quicker than lose items. It’s also more efficient regarding the stacking in the removal truck. All the space in the truck is used and furniture is better protected against moving.
