Moving to a new house is among the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking activities possible. Just working out the logistics of moving everything you have between houses is a very large job and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the right company to help you with the move, it seems really colossal and quite stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be and considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise list of steps that you will abide by during the move. It is good to create an inventory of every item you want transported. Such a list can not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully transported to your new home. Removal entails transporting a great deal of various items, among them a lot of little things that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to your new home safely. The next important step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the most useful ways of tagging boxes is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and blankets in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the transporting vehicle.
Take special care with fragile things. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles or bubble wrap and then label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting fragile cargo and which cardboards have to be handled with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal and ship all the things inside individually. Any unattached things in closets or drawers could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open during transportation. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the transporting car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture from the house, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only way to move them without harm. Be careful with that – be sure to store all the pins and screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you want to use the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing minor items, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics and much more, cardboards will be the most ob … vious choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a couple of methods to acquire some more. Firstly you may acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. But as you’ll probably need quite a few boxes, you can choose a more affordable method. Visit your local shops and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a lot of needless cardboards and they are usually happy to share.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for transporting clothes and little stuff. There is a quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as a decent alternative for packing textiles, magazines and small items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes and susceptible to breaking, should you decide to use them for shipping items with hard corners (like books, cutlery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It’s usually safest to move them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. One day before the shipment water the plants generously 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 before placing them in a box (you must pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Selecting suitable transport provider
Of course, apart from properly securing your load for the shipment, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. Which factors should you consider while selecting the right person? Price, obviously, is important, especially on longer, routes between countries, however that’s just one of the things to consider. When transporting everything you have you need to in the first place think if your cargo will be properly protected when given to the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you may check out reviews left by previous customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than feedback given by someone who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is or how long the route is. If your removal consist of many delicate items, the price is probable to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually less pricey than transporting your things into another country.
