Thousands of years ago peoples nomads moved their settlements walking from one place to another. In these times did not exist yet the moving companies to move their belongings, but there was also no need, since all their belongings loaded them in the back. Then, once domesticated animals, transfers were made to the horse’s back. When they began to emerge the cities, first came the need to move belongings from a House to another. Poor people had no problems because it was carrying all their belongings to the sack and they wore it in her arms.
But wealthy people used to have furniture, clothes and dishes of value. When they needed to move to a new House his servants were working on the move. They were responsible for moving furniture and baskets full of crockery to your new destination with the help of chariots and horses. The need for a moving service appeared in the 19th century. In those days the bourgeois families began to need to move your home to your new home. At that time appeared the first Coachmen who they offered their wagons for the transportation of furniture. The first moves were very rudimentary.
Furniture were large and solid so it is not easily disassembling. It was usual that furniture that could not be removed by the window remained on the floor forever. The furniture more manageable, such as beds, comfortable, furniture or small kitchen cabinets fell to the street by stairs or by the window. In those days there were no pulleys, by which everything down to pulse through the window with ropes. Later furniture were loaded to the cart to be transferred to your new destination. Shipping furniture were protected with the clothes of the customer: blankets, sheets and dresses to avoid blows and scratches. The smaller belongings were loaded into Wicker baskets. To protect fragile objects against breakage, the baskets were filled with straw or wood shavings. With time came the chests of different sizes, tailored for a specific type of belongings wicker. We can say that from this moment born profession of carrier of furniture which then turns into what today are called moving companies. In the 19th century when constructing buildings architects already took into account the needs of the workers of the removal company: on top of each building they built hooks designed exclusively for the use of moving. To hook riding a pulley which allowed operatives of the removal company climbing all furniture and furnishings by the facade of the building. Original author and source of the article.
