It is always a big step to make a move for the first time, at whatever stage in life it happens to be. Whilst accidents at work seem to be ones you can account for, a new home can offer all kinds of unforeseen hazards.
There is always a sense of caution in making a first move, as you want everything to run smoothly. It is normal that some first time movers try and take every necessary precaution to ensure they don’t leave themselves short.
Here is a list of five accidents that could occur when first moving if things didn’t go as planned:
- An object falling from a height, e.g. from a shelf;
- Any pre-owned electrical or large appliances not being moved correctly and causing harm when fitted;
- Unfinished DIY work from the previous tenants leading to accidents for new tenants;
- Problems with water, gas and electrical supplies, e.g. a fault with the boiler causing an accident;
- The furniture provided from previous tenants being unsafe, e.g broken chairs leading to an accident.
