Moving to a new house is among the most common 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 some of the most stressful activities possible. Just figuring out the organization of moving all your belongings between houses is an enormous task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as selecting the suitable company to assist you with the move, it seems truly huge and quite nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be and significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you should remember while packing is that you should create a coherent plan that you will stick to through the whole process. It is smart to create a list 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 of your things were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a great deal of stuff, including a lot of small items that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will help you check if they all arrived to your new home safely. Another important step is tagging all the boxes as clearly as you can. One of the most helpful ways of tagging boxes is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see 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 box, so that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the shipping car.
Take special care with fragile things. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric and bubble wrap as well as label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping fragile load and which cardboards have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal as well as transport all the things inside individually. Any unattached things inside closets or cabinets could harm your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they cannot open during shipment. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping car. Before attempting to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that they will fit through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you can move them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the only method to transport them without harm. 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 all the elements of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you need to use the shipping car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing minor items, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics and much more, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a couple of methods to … acquire some more. For example you can acquire new boxes in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But since you’ll probably require quite a few cardboards, you can decide upon a more budget-friendly way. Visit nearby stores and ask if they have any boxes they no longer need. Stores usually have a great amount of unnecessary cardboards and most of the time they are happy to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as little stuff. There is a quite higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be a decent choice when storing clothes, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to tearing, if you decide to use them for shipping items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most tricky loads to ship are houseplants. It’s obviously smartest to ship them individually, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. A 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 it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can prior to putting the plants in a box (you have to pour off the excess water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Searching for suitable hauler
Certainly, besides properly securing your items for the time of transportation, it is also important to find a suitable transport provider. What factors should you acknowledge when making your decision? Price, certainly, is of importance, especially on longer, routes between countries, however that’s only 1 factor. Whenever transporting all your belongings you have to in the first place consider if your cargo will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers every question you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but also you can check out reviews left by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than feedback left 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 asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically 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 fragile things, the cost is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are frequently more economical than shipping your load across borders.
