Changing apartment is one of the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking happenings possible. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting everything you have from one place to another is quite a task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the right hauler to help you with the move, it seems really colossal and very nerve-wracking. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible as well as considerably 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 should create a coherent list of steps that you will stick to during the move. It is best to create a list of all the things you want to transport. It 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 entails shipping a great deal of various items, including a lot of little things that can be easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you are able to. One of the more useful methods of labelling boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies and devices should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and jewellery in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting vehicle.
Take special care with delicate items. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles and bubble foil and label them clearly (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping fragile cargo and which boxes requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them before the removal and ship all the things inside individually. Any unattached things inside cupboards or drawers can damage your furniture on the road. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they won’t open during shipment. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Before attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the only way to move them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to store all the pins and bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you want to use the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing smaller things, like books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than … you have – but there is a couple of ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you may acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely require quite a few cardboards, you may choose a more budget-friendly method. Visit your local stores and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually have a lot of needless boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles as well as small stuff. There is a much higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient alternative for storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and prone to tearing, if you decide to use them for storing items with hard corners (like books, cutlery etc.). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
One of the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It’s usually safest to move them personally, but if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he will be transporting. One day prior to the shipment water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but also to let them absorb what they can prior to placing them in a box (you need to pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Selecting the best hauler
Of course, apart from suitably securing your load for the removal, it is equally important to choose a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you consider while making your decision? Price, of course, is of importance, especially on lengthy, international routes, but that’s just 1 factor. When shipping all your belongings you need to firstly think if your cargo will be safe in the hands of the hauler. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a transport provider but moreover you can check out feedback left by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than feedback given by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to asses, as it varies considerably because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of delicate things, the price is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are frequently less pricey than shipping your load across borders.
