Changing apartment is one of the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And even though we move averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most trying activities possible. Just working out the organization of shipping all your belongings between houses is a very large task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the best hauler to help you with the move, it becomes truly colossal and quite stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your items for transportation
One crucial thing you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to make an inventory of every item you need to transport. It will not only help you pack 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 stuff, among them a big amount of little items that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will help you check if they all arrived to your new home safely. Another crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more common ways of tagging cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, 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 in the transporting car.
Take special care with delicate goods. Enclose them in thick layers of fabric or bubble wrap and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping fragile cargo as well as which cardboards requires handling with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal and transport all the things inside individually. Any loose items inside closets or drawers could damage your furniture during shipment. It’s also smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture out of the house, 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 (be sure to have at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only way to ship them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – be sure to have all the nails and bolts gathered for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing smaller items, like magazines, kitchen appliances, decorations etc., boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s most likely that you will need more boxes than you have – but t … here is a couple of ways to get some more. Firstly you may buy new cardboards in all home-improvement and construction stores. However since you’ll most likely require lots of boxes, you can choose a more economical way. Visit your local shops and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Stores tend to possess a great amount of needless cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, especially for transporting textiles and small stuff. There is a quite higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative for packing clothes, magazines as well as little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and susceptible to breaking, if you decide to use them for transporting things with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult things to ship are houseplants. It’s always safest to move them individually, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he is going to transport. A day prior to the transportation water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can prior to putting them in a box (you have to pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Searching for the right hauler
Certainly, aside from properly securing your items for the shipment, it is also important to choose a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you take into consideration when making your decision? Price, obviously, is of importance, particularly on longer, international routes, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever shipping everything you have you should in the first place consider if your load will be safe when given to the transport provider. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers all the questions you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you may read feedback given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile items, the price is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – routes within one country are frequently more economical than shipping your items into another country.
