Changing house is among the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking activities that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of transporting all your belongings between houses is a very large job and when you add packing, unpacking as well as choosing the right company to help you with removal, it becomes truly huge as well as very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be and significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for transportation
One crucial tip you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is smart to create an inventory of all the things you need to transport. Such a list will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of various items, including a lot of little things that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – a list 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 tagging boxes is by category. So all the kitchen supplies and devices should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as blankets in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised 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 inside the transporting vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile goods. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric and bubble foil and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate cargo as well as which boxes requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside separately. Any unattached things inside cupboards and cabinets can damage your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open during transportation. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Before attempting to move your furniture from the house, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – make sure you store all the pins as well as screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you want to use the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever packing minor items, like magazines, kitch … en appliances, decorations and so on, cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a few ways to get additional boxes. Firstly you may acquire new boxes in all home-improvement or construction stores. However as you’ll probably need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more economical way. Try visiting your local shops and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops usually have a lot 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 and little items. There is a much bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a decent alternative when storing clothes, magazines and small items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for storing items with edges (for example books, cutlery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult things to ship are houseplants. It’s usually smartest to move them by yourself, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider is aware of what he is going to ship. A day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing them in a cardboard (you must get rid of the extra water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Choosing the best transport provider
Certainly, aside from suitably securing your items for the removal, it is equally important to choose a suitable hauler. What aspects of transportation should you take into consideration when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, of course, is of importance, especially on longer, routes between countries, but that’s only 1 factor. When shipping everything you have you have to in the first place think if your load will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible transport providers all the questions you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you may read feedback given by former customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more believable than feedback given by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If your removal consist of a lot of delicate things, the cost is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are frequently less pricey than moving your load into another country.
