Changing house is one of the most common situations we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most nerve-wracking activities possible. Just figuring out the organization of moving everything you have between houses is quite a job and when you add packing, unpacking as well as selecting the right company to assist you with the move, it becomes really huge and quite stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
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 clear plan that you’ll have to abide by through the whole process. It is smart to create an inventory of all the things you want transported. It can not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were safely shipped to its place of destination. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of various items, among them a big amount of small things that are easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more helpful methods of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) can be sure which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed inside the shipping car.
Take special care with fragile items. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric and bubble foil and then tag them clearly (including a “This way up” label). You should also make sure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile cargo and which boxes requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal and ship all the things inside separately. Any unattached things in cupboards and drawers could damage your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the shipping car. Before trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via 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 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to transport them without harm. 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 delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also convenient when you need to use the shipping car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing smaller items, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics and so on, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s very possible that you won’t … have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. For example you can get new boxes in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But since you’ll most likely need quite a few boxes, you can choose a more economical way. Try visiting nearby shops and ask if they have any boxes they don’t need any more. Stores usually have a great amount of unneeded boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for storing clothes as well as small items. There is a quite bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative for storing clothes, magazines as well as little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes as well as susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for storing things with edges (like books, cutlery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It’s always safest to ship them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. One day prior to the move water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can prior to placing them in a cardboard (you must pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Selecting the right transport provider
Of course, apart from properly securing your load for the shipment, it is also important to select a suitable hauler. What factors should you consider when making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is of importance, especially on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever transporting all your belongings you should in the first place take into consideration 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 possible transport providers all the questions you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but also you can check out reviews left by previous customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much is more believable than reviews given by a person who’s already hired the transport provider you are considering.
The cost 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 as well as how long the route is. If you are transporting many delicate items, the cost is probable to go up. The same goes for removals between countries – routes within one country are frequently less pricey than moving your things into another country.
