Changing house is among the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our life. And despite the fact we change the place we live in averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most trying happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of shipping everything you have between houses is an enormous job and when you add packing, unpacking as well as choosing the suitable company to assist you with the move, it becomes really colossal as well as very stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is best to make an inventory of every item you want to transport. It will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal entails shipping a big amount of stuff, among them a lot of small items that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – an inventory will help you make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. The next important step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the most helpful methods of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen supplies and appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as personal items in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, so that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport fragile things. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric and bubble foil and then tag them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping delicate cargo as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal as well as ship everything that was inside individually. Any loose things inside cupboards and cabinets could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the only method to move them safely. Be careful with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea when you need to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever securing minor items, like books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., cardboards will be the smartest choic … e. It’s most likely that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a couple of methods to acquire some more. For example you can buy new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. But as you’ll probably need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more affordable way. Try visiting your local stores and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Stores tend to have a great amount of needless cardboards and they are usually happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting clothes as well as little stuff. There is a much higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be an adequate choice when storing clothes, magazines and little things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes and prone to breaking, if you choose to use them for shipping items with edges (like books, stationery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most difficult loads to transport are houseplants. It is always safest to ship them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. One day prior to the removal water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the shipment, but also to let them absorb what they can before putting the plants in a box (you must pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Searching for the right hauler
Of course, apart from suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. What factors must you acknowledge when making your decision? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, especially on lengthy, international routes, but it’s only one of the factors. Whenever shipping everything you have you should in the first place take into consideration if your things will be safe when given to the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers all the questions you require an answer to before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you may check out feedback given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than reviews given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite hard to estimate, 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 a lot of delicate things, the cost is likely to be higher. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are normally cheaper than transporting your items into another country.
