– The process of protecting your goods (insurance, valuation, estimate, etc.) is identical to that of a traditional move.
The most important step in deciding is the calculation of the volume to be moved.
Go on the Internet to make an estimate: if the result is more than 20 m³, we advise you to hire a mover.
