Changing house is among the most ordinary happenings we can encounter 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 logistics of moving all your belongings from one place to another is an enormous task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as selecting the best company to assist you with removal, it seems truly huge as well as very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for shipment
The most important tip you should remember while packing is that you should create a clear list of steps that you’ll have to stick to during the move. It is smart to create a list of all the things you need to ship. It can not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all your belongings were successfully transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a big amount of stuff, including a big amount of small things that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will help you make sure they all arrived to your new home safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the most useful ways of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as personal items in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember 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 cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the shipping car.
Be extra careful with delicate items. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric or bubble foil and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be transporting fragile goods and which boxes requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to take everything out of them before the removal and transport all the things inside individually. Any unattached items in closets or drawers could harm your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting car. Before trying to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you can transport them without disassembling (be sure to have at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the sole method to transport them safely. Be careful with that – make sure you store all the pins as well as bolts gathered for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to use the transporting vehicle to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller items, such as books, kitchen appliances, decorations etc., cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – but the … re is a couple of ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. However as you’ll most likely need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more budget-friendly method. Try visiting your local stores and ask if they have any cardboards they no longer need. Stores tend to have a great amount of unnecessary cardboards and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes and little items. There is a much bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be an adequate choice for storing clothes, magazines and small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to breaking, should you choose to use them for storing items with edges (like books, stationery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously smartest to transport them by yourself, but if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider is aware of what he is going to transport. A day before the removal water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to endure the shipment, but also to allow them to 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).
Choosing suitable hauler
Of course, aside from suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is also important to choose a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Price, certainly, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, however it’s only one of the factors. Whenever transporting everything you have you have to firstly think if your load will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you may check out reviews left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is really hard to asses, 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 you plan to ship a lot of fragile items, the price is likely to be higher. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are usually cheaper than moving your load across borders.
