Changing house is one of the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And even though we change the place we live in averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most trying happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of transporting everything you have from one place to another is quite a job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to assist you with the move, it seems really huge and quite stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
The most important tip you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is best to create an inventory of all the things you need to transport. Such a list will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of various items, including a lot of small things that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – a list will help you make sure they all arrived to your new home safely. Another important step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more common ways of tagging boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be placed inside the transporting car.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Wrap them in thick layers of textiles or bubble wrap as well as tag them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be transporting fragile load and which cardboards requires handling with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal as well as ship all the things inside individually. Any loose items inside closets or cabinets could damage your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape so that they cannot open on the road. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the apartment, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you can transport them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the sole method to transport them safely. Be careful with dismantling – be sure to store all the pins as well as screws gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing minor items, such as books, kitchen appliances, deco … rations and so on, cardboards will be the most obvious choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few methods to get some more. For example you may acquire new boxes in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. But since you’ll probably require lots of cardboards, you may decide upon a more economical method. Try visiting nearby stores and see if they have any cardboards they no longer need. Stores tend to have a lot of unnecessary boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing textiles as well as small stuff. There is a quite bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be a decent choice when storing textiles, magazines as well as small items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as susceptible to breaking, if you decide to use them for storing things with hard corners (like books, stationery etc.). Moreover – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It is obviously best to transport them by yourself, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler is aware of what he will be transporting. A day before the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but also to let them absorb what they can prior to placing them in a box (you need to get rid of the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the container).
Selecting the right hauler
Certainly, besides suitably securing your items for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. Which factors must you consider while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is of importance, especially on longer, international routes, but it’s just one of the factors. When transporting all your belongings you should firstly take into consideration if your cargo will be safe in the hands of the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you can read feedback left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than feedback given by someone who’s already hired the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is quite hard to estimate, 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 many fragile items, the price is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are usually cheaper than moving your load across borders.
