Moving to a new house is among the most ordinary situations we can experience in our life. And even though we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most stressful happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of moving everything you have between houses is an enormous task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the right hauler to assist you with the move, it becomes truly huge as well as quite nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be and considerably less stressful.
Packing and securing your items for shipment
The most important thing you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise plan that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is smart to create an inventory of all the things you want transported. Such a list will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were safely shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a great deal of stuff, including a big amount of small items that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will help you check if they all arrived to your new home safely. The next important step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more useful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen supplies as well as devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as jewellery in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked in the shipping car.
Take special care with delicate goods. Wrap them in thick layers of textiles as well as bubble wrap and then label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting delicate load and which boxes requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside separately. Any loose things in closets or cabinets can damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open on the road. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture from the apartment, make sure that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you can transport them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole method to ship them without harm. Be careful with that – be sure to have all the pins as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you need to use the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing minor things, such as books, kitchen appliances, decorations and so on … , boxes will be the smartest choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a couple of ways to get additional boxes. For example you can buy new boxes in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. However since you’ll most likely require lots of cardboards, you may decide upon a more budget-friendly way. Go to nearby stores and see if they have any boxes they no longer need. Stores tend to have a great amount of unnecessary cardboards and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, especially for storing textiles as well as little items. There is a much higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be a decent choice when storing textiles, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to tearing, if you choose to use them for transporting items with edges (for example books, stationery etc.). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously best to move them by yourself, but if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider is aware of what he will be transporting. One day prior to the shipment water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to let them take in what they can before placing the plants in a container (you must get rid of the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Searching for suitable hauler
Certainly, apart from properly securing your cargo for the shipment, it is also important to find a suitable hauler. Which factors should you consider while selecting the right person? Cost of the service, obviously, is of importance, particularly on lengthy, international routes, but it’s only 1 factor. Whenever transporting everything you have you have to in the first place think if your things will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you can read reviews left by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than reviews left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite difficult to asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is or the route length. If you are transporting many delicate things, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for international removals – routes within one country are normally more economical than moving your items across borders.
