Why you should leave packing to the professionals

packing-for-a-home-or-office-moveMoving anywhere is not an easy job at all. Engaging movers, checking if all your goods have been packed, and then making sure that the goods reach the venue in proper condition is not an easy job at all. It has often happened that the items have been found to be broken or damaged on reaching the destination.

This problem can be prevented if the goods are packed properly. A reliable Pretoria furniture removals company should specialize in making small moves fast and easy. Most people don’t realize that companies that are not well-versed in packing methods should not be approached when you are packing delicate items like antiques and glass pieces. Even electronics and furniture need to be packed properly so that they remain intact when they reach your new home.

There is another factor that should be kept in mind when the items are packed into the boxes. If the box is packed with few items, it will leave a lot of space between the items and when they are being transported, the box might be crushed by the other boxes. But then again, if the box is packed to capacity, there is a chance of it breaking open and the items getting damaged. The goods inside the box also need to be protected from moisture.

Your moving company’s team will have the knowledge and expertise to tackle the packing of both heavy-duty and light weight items. They offer two kinds of packages:

  • Complete Packing – Mini Moves will pack all your goods and oversee the entire process.
  • Partial Packing – You might not want them to pack all items. If you want your mover to pack items like books, vases, showpieces, you can easily avail their partial packing facility.

The transportation and delivery will be their responsibility. You can rest assured that the goods will be in perfect condition after the delivery. Any reliable Phalaborwa moving company also help you to unpack so that you can get settled faster. The best part is that they will save your time and ensure a hassle-free delivery. When your moving company is at your service, you are bound to get nothing but the best.

Still not convinced about us? Just check out the services. Your mover will also deal with various other services such as auto moving, crating, and full service moves. In case of any query, feel free to contact your removalist and they will be happy to help you out.

Do Your Bit: Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

At Mosnet Homes we believe that the small changes we make today will have a major impact on the world we have tomorrow. We can be the national theme for this year’s environment month, which was celebrated last month, was an ideal opportunity for each and every one of us to consider what we can change to lessen our impact on the environment. Human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation and unsustainable agricultural practices increases the greenhouse gas emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere and accelerating global climate change.

reducing your carbon footprint

The Long-Term Mitigation Scenarios (LTMS) showed that South Africa is vulnerable to the predicated climate change impacts. These impacts are expected to give pressure to the country’s water supply, agriculture, forestry, energy production, health, transportation, tourism and much more. The water resources in South Africa are extremely limited due to the country’s dryness, and greater environmental impact will only exacerbate the situation.

One of the most significant areas we can control our environmental footprint is savings on energy and water consumption as well as choosing environmentally friendly products. Actions on climate change reflect the rising urgency to tackle this global challenge with concrete investments while improving the country’s carbon footprint.

As a country we need to join together and live eco-friendly lives, so that generations to come can enjoy our earth’s bounty. Our lifestyle is the way we live, and that includes everything from how we get around and interact with each other to the way we shop and consume food. Eco-lifestyle including choosing products ranging from environmental-friendly material, organic food, hybrid cars, green building material, recyclable products, water and energy savings technologies.

As part of our environmental campaign, Mosnet Homes empowers people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development.  This also gives us an opportunity to promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards these environmental issues.

What Can We Do to Combat Climate Change?

Reduce our energy and water use. The more efficiently and wisely we use energy in our homes, at work and on the road, the more global warming emissions we can prevent. Transporting and treating water consume energy, using water more efficiently also means using less energy. Making use of solar energy can make a huge difference in reducing your footprint. A solar geyser installation might be costly upfront, but over time it will save you alot of money, as well as be more environmentally responsible. Talk with a reliable Pretoria plumber today.

Reduce. Be more responsible about how we use resources and opt for products that use less packaging, they would probably be fresher and healthier anyway.

Re-use. Products often have more than one life. Save money and time by finding new uses for used items you are have.

Recycle. Recycle our waste. Paper, plastics, cans and even glass can also be recycled. Use recycled paper and other products as much as possible at home and at work.

In addition, every product we buy contributes to the amount of rubbish going to landfill. We can also help reduce waste by adopting the following ‘green’ shopping habits.

Make sure that the product’s packaging wasteful or excessive

Most packaging will be discarded once the product inside it is used up, so look for packaging that is made from materials your local council recycles. A better alternative is to choose products that come in refillable or reusable packaging.

Choose products made from recyclable materials

Choose products made from recycled materials such as paper, cardboard, aluminium, steel and plastic. Avoid hazardous materials.

Buy locally Grown and Produced Products

Transporting products from around the world contributes to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Buying locally made products is a great way to reduce adverse environmental impacts while supporting local economies.

Use Eco-friendly Cleaning Products

Conventional cleaning products such as laundry detergents and households’ cleaners can leak chemical solvents and toxins into the environment.

Whether you own your home, or you are a first time buyer, it is your responsibility to preserve the earth for the generations to come.

Contact us today if you would like to discuss how you can be more environmentally responsible.
