Moving to a new apartment is one of the most ordinary situations we can experience in our life. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most nerve-wracking activities that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of transporting everything you have from one place to another is a very large task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the right transport provider to assist you with the move, it becomes really colossal and quite stressful. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for transportation
The most important tip you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear plan that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is smart to make an inventory of every item you need to transport. It will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely shipped to its place of destination. Removal calls for transporting a big amount of stuff, among them a big amount of little items that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all made it to your new home safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you are able to. One of the more useful ways of labelling cardboards is by the room name. For example all the kitchen supplies and appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful with fragile goods. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric and bubble foil and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping delicate load and which boxes requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport all the things inside individually. Any unattached items inside closets and drawers can damage your furniture during shipment. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the house, make sure 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 transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to ship them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to store all the pins as well as screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also convenient when you need to use the transporting car to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing minor things, like books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and much … more, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may get new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. But as you’ll most likely require quite a few boxes, you may decide upon a more economical way. Go to your local shops and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually have a lot of needless cardboards and most of the time they are happy 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 quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be an adequate choice for storing textiles, magazines and little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes and susceptible to breaking, should you decide to use them for storing things with edges (like books, cutlery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most tricky things to ship are houseplants. It’s usually smartest to transport them individually, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler is aware of what he will be transporting. A day before the transportation water the plants thoroughly and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but also to let them take in what they can prior to placing the plants in a container (you have to pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the container).
Selecting the best hauler
Certainly, aside from properly securing your load for the shipment, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. What factors should you take into consideration while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is of importance, particularly on lengthy, international routes, however it’s just one of the factors. Whenever shipping all your belongings you need to in the first place consider if your things will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but moreover you may check out feedback given by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than feedback left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to estimate, because it varies considerably because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is or the route length. If you plan to ship a lot of delicate things, the cost is probable to be higher. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are normally cheaper than transporting your load across borders.
