Moving to a new apartment is one of the most common situations we can encounter in our life. And despite the fact we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most stressful happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics 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 help you with the move, it seems truly colossal as well as quite stressful. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as can be as well as significantly 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 coherent list of steps that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is good to make an inventory of every item you want to ship. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were safely shipped to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a big amount of various items, including a lot of little things that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to your new home safely. Another important step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most useful methods of labelling cardboards is by category. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and jewellery in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the shipping vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile items. Enclose them in protective layers of textiles as well as bubble foil as well as label them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” label). You also need to make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting fragile goods as well as which cardboards have to be handled with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport all the things inside individually. Any unattached things inside cupboards or drawers could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open during shipment. You may use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping car. Ahead of trying to move your furniture from the house, be certain that they will fit through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to ship them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to store all the nails as well as screws in one place for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also smart whenever you need to fill the shipping car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing sma … ller items, such as books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s almost certain that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a few ways to get some more. Firstly you can get new boxes in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. However since you’ll probably need quite a few boxes, you can choose a more affordable way. Try visiting your local stores and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Shops usually possess a lot of unneeded cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles and little stuff. There is a much bigger chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a decent choice when packing textiles, magazines as well as little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as susceptible to breaking, should you decide to use them for storing things with edges (for example books, stationery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most tricky things to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously best to ship them individually, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. A day before the transportation water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to let them absorb what they can before putting them in a box (you must pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the container).
Searching for the best transport provider
Of course, aside from suitably securing your items for the removal, it is also crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while selecting the right person? Price, obviously, is of importance, particularly on lengthy, international routes, but that’s only 1 factor. Whenever transporting everything you have you should firstly think if your load will be properly protected when given to the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers all the questions you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you may check out feedback given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to asses, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of many delicate things, the price is probable to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually cheaper than transporting your things into another country.
