3 Important Moving Tips to Consider

Professional movers are often not considered because they are expensive. You should be smart enough while choosing a moving company. You can still receive professional help and lower your costs by concentrating on three important tips.

Price quotes

When you are considering to move, you need to contact several companies and get an estimate for the moving process and the distance that you are moving. It is always better to know the amount of material that you are moving. Example, a two bedroom flat with appliances will cost more than a single bed room flat with appliances.


Packing on your own helps you reduce the costs. If you choose a professional moving company, then the cost might be much higher. It may also be time consuming to properly pack your items.

Some might wish to purchase boxes from the moving companies. However you can rent boxes for cheaper prices. You can even try for companies that rent trucks. These companies might rent items that you need to pack.


Some might also look to store your things. In that case, you can save a lot of money if you do it yourself. Most of the professional moving companies offer storage services while moving your things. Once its moved they will store the things in a secured place. However you need to pay an extra charge for the storage.

If you need to store things, you can choose a rental truck however if you don't have more things, you can choose a truck for moving alone. Check the charge for storage but it would be much cheaper if you do it yourself. It's always a good idea to compare costs. If the costs are not too higher, you can hire the work from a professional piano movers rather than doing yourself.

Lotus, Renault and Virgin F1 teams change names for 2012

formula1 teams

The battle, as you may recall, involves two outfits - neither of them directly owned by Lotus. One is based in Malaysia and licensed the name from Lotus' parent company, Proton, before subsequently "acquiring" the name from a third party that laid claim to it. The issue was further complicated when Lotus itself teamed with the Renault F1 team, resulting in two squads called Lotus-Renault.

The two operations have now reached a compromise. The green-and-yellow Malaysian outfit known until now as Team Lotus be named Caterham in 2012, while the Renault team will be cleared to use the Lotus name.
