No matter what kind of IFR8 freight you send, you’ll want it to arrive in good condition with no visible damage.  The first step is to choose a reliable transport company that comes highly recommended by friends, family or someone else you know and trust. Failing that, you can ask around hardware or furniture stores, or do some research online to find just the right company.

Here are 11 tips to ensure it arrives safely.

  • Packaging is the watchword if you want goods to arrive undamaged. Don’t just pack them up in any old box with a piece of string to keep it all together. Choose a box that is new or nearly new and has not been obviously battered around on other trips.

Enhance Your Life by Using a Professional Handyman

November 24, 2015 The Amateurs Digest 0

When you own a home there is always going to be some repair job that needs doing. While it is true that many homeowners develop the skills to do such jobs, they are rarely as good at doing them than a person who is a professional Perth handyman, simply because they don’t get the experience needed in doing them over and over again – not to mention the professional training in how to do them properly in the first place.

The trouble is that even though you may love your tools and enjoy working with your hands, you have another job that takes up most of your time and energy. Often, those repairs are left for weeks on end – maybe even months – simply because you don’t have the time or inclination to do them. Meanwhile, people who have to use the thing that’s broken get really stressed out because it is difficult to use, or it doesn’t work at all.

How to Get Paint Off Your Carpet

May 17, 2012 The Amateurs Digest 0

It happens. You are happily repainting your bedroom or living area and suddenly a big blob of paint falls off the roller or brush. Of course, you will have already covered the carpet carefully with a paint sheet or tarp, but somehow the paint still seems to get on the carpet through some tiny hole.  According to www.brilliancecleaning.com.au carpet cleaning is in order, but don’t clean the carpet as you would for ordinary dirt or spill.

Many people use water-based paint for their home these days because it is so easy to put on and clean up. And it is just as durable as oil based paint. But it is almost impossible to get out of the carpet, whether it has long or short fibres.  If you press that paint into the carpet with a cloth or kitchen paper towel, the colour will seep right through the fibres into the backing and never come out.
