When Moving Keep These Things In Mind


The world is evolving and with time, we need to change ourselves to stay on course. Smartphones were once a part of sci-fi movies, cameras were some heavy piece of equipment and music was limited to iPods and mp3 players. But our genius scientists have brought everything together and given a single device that can do all the things we can think of. I am a camera collector and have hundreds of vintage cameras in my home in different kinds of showcases that I got a custom built to fit all the products. From Polaroids to DSLR I have almost every kind of camera.


What inspired me to be a camera collector?

The craving for camera collection started almost 15 years back when I saw people carrying various kinds of cameras during my trip to Canada. I was at Niagra falls getting my photo clicked with a very simple single lens canon camera with no zoom. And beside me was a family who had this big premium looking camera which looked advanced way ahead of time. So I got curious and started studying about cameras and the accessories that we can attach with the cameras to improve its performance. 


I had no idea that the camera I had was an old-school product and lacked every feature. So I went to the market and bought a new camera to test. I was shocked by the results. My old camera made me feel as if I was living in stone age. Slowly, steadily I started collecting cameras both old and new. 

Soon I realized that I was out of space and need to move to a new place. As a collector, I had got more responsibilities as I had to focus on preserving every single piece. I looked around couldn't find any help so I asked for help from the internet. At first, I thought I can move the house myself but these valuable items are delicate and a small mistake can cost me 100s of dollars. I tried reading blogs like 





After reading, I understood that I am unfit for moving as I need help from professionals to move my stuff. During my online search, I found one firm,  CBD Movers Brisbane that has been performing all kind of moving tasks for over a decade now. I called them instantly and in a few hours they were at my doorstep with the packing material and moving trucks. They analyzed the complete house and started explaining that I have no reason to panic as they will move my collection cautiously. I saw them packing all my cameras one by one and wrapping it in bubble wrap and boxes. I had a sigh of relief when they loaded all the stuff in their trucks and in 24 hours I was in my new home unpacking. 

For my cameras, I had got new showcases designed. I had a design of mixture of wood & glass in mind and have shared the same with carpenters. They showed me one or two samples and I knew what I was aiming for. They completed the process in two weeks time and I got this done in advance as I had planned a minimal time when moving to a new place. So I started placing all the products and with right kind of lights, It is a view that you would want to see every night before going to sleep.
