Changing house is one of the most common happenings we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most stressful activities possible. Just figuring out the organization of transporting all your belongings from one place to another is a very large task and when you add packing, unpacking and selecting the best hauler to help you with removal, it seems truly huge as well as quite nerve-wracking. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for shipment
One crucial thing you should remember while packing is that you need a precise list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is good to create a list of all the things you want to ship. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a big amount of stuff, among them a lot of little items that are easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will help you make sure they all arrived to your new home safely. The next important step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you can. One of the more useful ways of labelling boxes is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances go into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and personal items in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the hauler) can be sure which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the transporting car.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles and bubble wrap as well as label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping fragile goods as well as which boxes requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to empty them prior to the removal as well as ship all the things inside separately. Any loose items in closets and drawers could harm your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open on the road. You may use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that they will fit through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only method to move them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to store all the nails and screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you want to use the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing minor items, like magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., 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 methods to acquire some more. Firstly you may get new boxes in all home-improvement or construction stores. However since you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may choose a more economical way. Go to nearby stores and ask if they have any cardboards they no longer need. Stores usually have 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 transporting clothes and small stuff. There is a much bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be a decent alternative for packing clothes, magazines as well as little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as prone to breaking, should you choose to use them for storing items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult items to ship are houseplants. It’s usually safest to move them by yourself, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. A day prior to the move water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the transportation, but also to let them take in what they can before putting the plants in a cardboard (you need to pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Choosing the best hauler
Certainly, apart from suitably securing your items for the removal, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, of course, is important, especially on lengthy, international routes, but that’s just 1 factor. Whenever transporting all your belongings you have to firstly consider if your load will be safe in the hands of the hauler. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you may check out feedback given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than feedback given by a person who’s already hired the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If you are transporting a lot of delicate things, the cost is likely to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are frequently less pricey than moving your load into another country.
