Moving to a new house is one of the most common happenings we can encounter in our life. And even though we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most stressful activities that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of moving all your belongings between houses is an enormous job and with packing, unpacking and choosing the suitable company to help you with the move, it becomes really colossal as well as very stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be as well as significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is best to create a list of every item you want to ship. It can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a big amount of stuff, among them a lot of small things that can be easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to the place of destination safely. The next important step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more helpful methods of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget 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 shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful with delicate goods. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric as well as bubble wrap as well as tag them clearly (including a “This way up” label). You should also ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be transporting fragile cargo and which boxes have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them before the removal and transport all the things inside individually. Any unattached items in closets and drawers can harm your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture from the apartment, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without disassembling (find at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole method to transport them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to have all the nails as well as screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart when you want to use the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever packing minor things, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the most … efficient choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few ways to get additional boxes. For example you may acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. But since you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may decide upon a more budget-friendly method. Try visiting your local shops and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Stores tend to possess a great amount of unneeded cardboards and most of the time they are willing to share.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for storing textiles and little stuff. There is a much higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be an adequate alternative when storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as prone to tearing, should you decide to use them for transporting items with edges (like books, cutlery etc.). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It is always best to transport them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he will be transporting. One day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them absorb what they can before placing them in a box (you have to pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Searching for the right hauler
Obviously, apart from properly securing your cargo for the shipment, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you take into consideration when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is of importance, especially on longer, international routes, but that’s only 1 factor. When transporting everything you have you need to in the first place take into consideration if your load will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible transport providers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but also you can read reviews left by previous customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing is more believable than reviews left by someone who’s already hired the transport provider you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is pretty difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If you plan to ship many fragile items, the price is probable to go up. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually cheaper than shipping your things into another country.
