Regardless of whether you’re moving within the UK ,Europe or even further afield, you’ll no doubt have heard superstitions and myths for relocations. While some of them are harmless and amusing, others require more scrutiny and should be debunked wherever possible. To this end, Aussie presents our very own guide to removals superstitions from around the world.
Relocation Superstitions from Around the World –
There’s an old Irish tradition that states you should always exit through the same door you enter. Not doing this is said to bring an untold amount of bad luck. Apparently, it’s fine to do this once and then use other exits afterwards. In the Philippines, it wouldn’t be unusual to scatter coins in the living room on moving in day. This encourages good fortune and prosperity, which sounds like a good idea.
In the southern states of America, people believe spirits can’t cross water, so they paint their porches blue. This is to trick any would-be ghosts into thinking the front of the house is water. Similarly, some people believe sprinkling a pinch of salt on the floors in every room and front door will ward off evil spirits. After twenty-four hours, you’re okay to hoover them up along with any evil spirits.
If the weather says it’s supposed to sprinkle or, even worse, thunderstorm on moving day, you might want to reschedule. It’s a superstition throughout many different cultures and countries that it’s bad luck to move on a rainy day. Others include avoiding relocating on a Friday or Saturday, but we’re not sure why.
A Range of Removals Services –
While these superstitions or myths are harmless enough, it’s worth noting that most removal companies can cope with rainy conditions. Additionally, there’s no actual reason to avoid moving on a Friday or Saturday, other than it is not very easy to secure Fridays or find a company that will work weekends. What’s more important to anyone who’s organising a relocation is finding the correct service.
A home removal service, which is often referred to as a domestic package, will share some traits for most removals’ companies. Similarly, every removals and storage company in London will offer a removals service that covers the basics. This will include all loading and transporting of your possessions.
One of the packages in Aussie’s range is our dedicated Packing service. Our team will do all the heavy-lifting, inventory, loading and unpacking work for you. This can be invaluable for people who have busy work or household schedules. And this is a service that covers national and European relocations. Aussie’s removals team have all the right packing materials which we also offer for sale from our website and branches.
If you run into an issue with moving dates, we have three storage options available for domestic customers. Our Container Storage package would be suitable if you want long-term storage without the need for regular access. The Self Storage package is typically for people who require frequent access or needs storage for a short period. And our AusBox Storage package combines elements of both the previous options.
