Changing apartment is one of the most ordinary situations we can experience in our days. And even though we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking activities possible. Just figuring out the logistics of shipping everything you have between houses is an enormous task and when you add packing, unpacking as well as selecting the suitable company to help you with removal, it becomes really huge and very 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 the time of the removal
The most important thing you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise 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 ship. It can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a big amount of various items, among them a lot of little items that can be easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – an inventory will help you make sure they all arrived to your new home safely. Another important step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the more useful ways of tagging boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies and appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and personal items in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, so that you (and the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be placed inside the transporting car.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate things. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles or bubble wrap as well as tag them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile load as well as which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them prior to the removal as well as ship all the things inside separately. Any loose things inside cupboards and cabinets can harm your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they won’t open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture from the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to move them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole way to move them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you store all the nails as well as screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart when you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing smaller things, like books, kitchen appliances, decorations and so on, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is … a couple of methods to get additional boxes. Firstly you can acquire new boxes in all home-improvement and construction stores. But as you’ll most likely require lots of cardboards, you can decide upon a more budget-friendly method. Try visiting your local stores and see if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a great amount of unneeded boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing textiles as well as small items. There is a quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative for storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes and prone to breaking, should you decide to use them for shipping things with edges (for example books, cutlery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It is obviously smartest to ship them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. A day prior to the shipment water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the shipment, but also to let them take in what they can prior to placing the plants in a cardboard (you need to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the box).
Choosing suitable hauler
Obviously, besides suitably securing your items for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to find a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you acknowledge when making your decision? Price, obviously, is important, particularly on lengthy, international routes, but that’s only one of the factors. When shipping everything you have you need to in the first place take into consideration if your load will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective transport providers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you may check out reviews given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more believable than reviews given by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite difficult to estimate, because it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of many delicate items, the cost is likely to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are usually more economical than shipping your items into another country.
