Dominik made a fantastic job! Very nice and reliable guy. All my belongings were in Germany within 3 days. Would definitely recommend him!! Thanks again :)
Very nice and helpful team. Brought Juri safely to Austria. For travel documents I highly recommend vetsforpets in Romford, the Vet there is experienced and knows exactly what documents are needed. Thanks Melinda!
I would recomended 100%, the service was really good, he was polite, hard working and adaptable, giving the option to pay in different currency, and doing moves of large distance, with an excellent price, better than a moving company.
Changing house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking situations possible. Just figuring out the organization of shipping everything you have between houses is an enormous task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the suitable hauler to help you with removal, it becomes really colossal as well as very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for transportation
The most important thing you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to abide by through the whole process. It is good to make a list of every item you want transported. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a big amount of various items, among them a lot of little items that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another important step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you can. One of the most common methods of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the transporting vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile goods. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric and bubble foil and then label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping delicate cargo as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal as well as transport all the things inside separately. Any loose things in closets or drawers can harm your furniture on the road. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they cannot open during transportation. You may use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the apartment, make sure that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only way to ship them safely. Be careful with that – be sure to have all the pins and bolts in one place like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also smart when you need to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller items, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, decorations and so on, cardboards w … ill be the most obvious choice. It’s probable that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a few ways to get some more. For example you may get new cardboards in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely need quite a few boxes, you can choose a more budget-friendly method. Try visiting nearby stores and see if they have any boxes they no longer need. Stores tend to have a great amount of unneeded boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing clothes as well as little stuff. There is a quite bigger 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 things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for shipping items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and so on). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most difficult loads to transport are houseplants. It is usually smartest to move them by yourself, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. A day before the move water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to allow them to absorb what they can before placing the plants in a container (you have to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Choosing suitable transport provider
Certainly, besides properly securing your load for the removal, it is equally crucial to select a suitable hauler. Which factors should you take into consideration when making your decision? Price, obviously, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just one of the factors. When transporting all your belongings you should firstly take into consideration if your things will be safe when given to the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a transport provider but also you may read feedback given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than feedback left by someone who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is really hard to asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as the route length. If you plan to ship many fragile things, the cost is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – routes within one country are frequently less pricey than moving your load into another country.
