Moving to a new apartment is one of the most ordinary happenings we can encounter 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 situations possible. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting all your belongings between houses is quite a job and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to help you with removal, it seems really huge as well as very nerve-wracking. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible as well as significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your items for shipment
One crucial thing you have to remember while packing is that you need a precise plan that you’ll have to abide by through the whole process. It is good to create an inventory of every item you want to transport. Such a list will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal calls for transporting a great deal of stuff, including a big amount of small things that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – a list will help you check if they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another important step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the most common ways of labelling boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies and devices should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and jewellery in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out 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, to make sure that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the shipping car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate goods. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles and bubble foil as well as label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile load and which boxes have to be handled with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to take everything out of them before the removal and ship everything that was inside separately. Any unattached items inside cupboards or cabinets could harm your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they cannot open on the road. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting car. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only way to transport them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to store all the pins and screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also smart when you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing smaller things, like magazines, tableware, decorations etc., boxes will be the smartest choice. It’s very possi … ble that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a few methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you can get new boxes in all home-improvement or construction stores. However since you’ll most likely need lots of boxes, you can choose a more budget-friendly method. Go to your local stores and see if they have any boxes they don’t need any more. Shops tend to possess a lot of unneeded boxes and most of the time they are happy to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting clothes and little stuff. There is a quite bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be a sufficient choice for storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to tearing, if you choose to use them for transporting things with hard corners (like books, cutlery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It is obviously best to transport them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he is going to ship. A day prior to the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them absorb what they can before putting the plants in a cardboard (you need to pour off the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the container).
Searching for suitable hauler
Certainly, aside from suitably securing your load for the removal, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. Which aspects of transportation must you consider when making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is of importance, especially on lengthy, routes between countries, but that’s just one of the things to consider. When transporting everything you have you need to in the first place consider if your load will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but moreover you may read reviews left by previous customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more reliable than feedback given by a person who’s already hired the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is really hard to asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If your removal consist of many delicate things, the price is probable to be higher. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually cheaper than shipping your items into another country.
