Moving to a new apartment is one of the most ordinary situations we can encounter in our days. And even though we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting everything you have between houses is a very large job and with packing, unpacking as well as choosing the right hauler to help you with the move, it seems truly huge and very stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and considerably less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for transportation
One crucial tip you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is smart to make a list of all the things you want transported. It can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal calls for transporting a great deal of various items, among them a big amount of small things that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more useful ways of labelling boxes is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories as well as devices go into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as jewellery in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the shipping car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport fragile things. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles or bubble foil and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” label). You should also ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting delicate cargo and which boxes requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s important to empty them prior to the removal as well as ship all the things inside individually. Any loose items in closets or drawers could damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Before attempting to move your furniture from the apartment, 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 can transport them without dismantling (be sure to have at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the sole way to transport them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – make sure you store all the nails as well as bolts gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you want to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing minor items, like books, kitchen appliances, … decorations and so on, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may get new boxes in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But since you’ll probably need lots of boxes, you may choose a more affordable method. Visit your local stores and ask if they have some cardboards they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a great amount of needless cardboards and most of the time they are happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles as well as little items. There is a quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be a decent alternative for storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes and susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for storing things with hard corners (like books, stationery and so on). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It is usually best to ship them personally, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. One day prior to the transportation water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them take in what they can prior to placing them in a box (you must pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Choosing suitable transport provider
Of course, aside from suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is also important to select a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you consider while selecting the right person? Price, of course, is important, particularly on lengthy, routes between countries, but it’s only one of the factors. When shipping all your belongings you have to firstly consider if your things will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you can check out reviews given by former customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be 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 really difficult to asses, because it varies considerably due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of delicate things, the cost is likely to go up. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are frequently more economical than moving your load into another country.
