Changing house is among the most common situations we can experience in our days. And even though we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most trying activities possible. Just working out the organization of transporting everything you have from one place to another is a very large task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and selecting the right transport provider to help you with the move, it becomes truly huge as well as very stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible as well as significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for shipment
The most important thing you should remember while packing is that you need a clear plan that you will abide by during the move. It is best to create a list of every item you want transported. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, among them a lot of small items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another important step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the more common ways of labelling cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the box tagged ‘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 hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be stacked in the shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful with fragile goods. Enclose them in protective layers of textiles and bubble wrap and label them clearly (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile load as well as which boxes requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to empty them prior to the removal as well as ship everything that was inside individually. Any unattached things inside cupboards or cabinets can harm your furniture on the road. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they cannot open during shipment. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that they will fit through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to transport them safely. Be careful with that – make sure you have all the nails and screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to fill the shipping car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever packing minor items, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the most efficient choice. It’s almos … t certain that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – however there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you can buy new boxes in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. But since you’ll most likely need lots of cardboards, you may decide upon a more affordable method. Try visiting your local shops and ask if they have any cardboards they don’t need any more. Stores usually possess a lot of needless cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes and small items. There is a quite higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient choice for storing textiles, magazines as well as small things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes as well as prone to tearing, should you choose to use them for transporting items with hard corners (like books, cutlery etc.). Moreover – 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 usually best to transport them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. One day before the move water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but also to let them take in what they can before putting them in a container (you have to get rid of the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Searching for the right transport provider
Obviously, apart from suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation should you consider when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, of course, is important, especially on lengthy, routes between countries, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever shipping all your belongings you have to in the first place take into consideration if your load will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but also you can read reviews left by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than feedback left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to estimate, because it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of delicate things, the price is probable to be higher. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are normally cheaper than moving your things into another country.
