Although very few people were familiar with movers and moving companies, I'd like to tip people who might visit this blog regarding lipat bahay services in Manila and where to best rent a truck to move your stuff when moving from one place to another or from one office to the other. First off, you have to make sure that all your things will fit in with the size of lipat bahay truck that you will be renting. Secondly, you will have to see to it that the people you are hiring for moving services have a track record with their lipat bahay service. If they don't chances are you might risk losing whatever else you have left when you move from one place to another.
Remember that it is a different case when you try to rent a lipat-bahay truck in the United States than it is in Manila or anywhere in the Philippines. In Sulit.Com is where you can find many service offers for moving your household stuff to your new place but remember that security and safety of your things is a primary concern. Take for example when you have sensitive valuable stuff to move like a piano or some expensive paintings. These kinds of household stuff are usually moved with utmost care and with the right equipment. One small mistake could lead to damage or worse, even destruction of your precious things rendering it useless instead of value.
Should you need piano moving service, please don't hesitate to hire a professional moving service or their moving truck especially designed to ship pianos or any valuable stuff you have. Be sure to ask first if they can do it and if they have the right equipment to use for your special lipatbahay needs.
Well, in case you didn't know, there are special boxes designed specifically for moving or for a specific lipat bahay service. Should you need one, I'd like to give you a tip where you can actually save enough money for the finishing of your new home or new place. Try to get your boxes from the nearest mall you can find. Groceries do offer giving away extra boxes to people when asked. If you can't get one from in there, there is another sure way to get your a cheaper option which is in the junk shop. Your nearest tekal boys is a good source.
Try to see within your neighborhood or talk to tekal boys, those with small carts passing by the street and consign with them if they find a good box or carton that you can use to pack up your stuff for moving. But it from them but be sure to buy it based on the price they are sold on a per kilo basis just like when it is bought in the junk shops out in the neighborhood. You can add up a little amount to pay these tekal boys just to encourage them to sell the boxes to you rather than in the junk shop.
Preparation of your Stuff
In case you didn't know, I came up with the moving box idea above because I have a previous experience in hiring a lipat bahay service in Manila going to Laguna in San Pedro. Just to give you an idea, some lipat bahay services offer just moving whatever stuff you have, meaning that you get to prepare it and pack it up with the use of moving boxes. If this is your case, do the tips I have above. You save a lot of time preparing everything in advance before you hire a moving service or the lipat-bahay service. A week before moving is advisable.
