Moving to a new house is among the most common happenings we can come across in our days. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of shipping all your belongings between houses is an enormous job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the best company to assist you with removal, it becomes really huge as well as quite nerve-wracking. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for transportation
The most important thing you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to make an inventory of all the things you need to transport. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of various items, among them a lot of small items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all made it to your new home safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as clearly as you can. One of the more helpful ways of tagging cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and blankets in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, so that you (as well as the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the shipping car.
Take special care with delicate things. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric or bubble wrap and label them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You should also ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be transporting delicate load and which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to empty them before the removal and ship all the things inside separately. Any loose items in cupboards and cabinets can damage your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they cannot open during transportation. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the shipping car. Before trying to move your furniture from the house, be certain 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 dismantling (be sure to have at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the only way to move them without harm. Be careful with that – be sure to store all the nails 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. Disassembling furniture is also smart whenever you want to use the shipping car to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing minor items, like books, tableware, decorations … etc., boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s probable that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – however there is a few methods to acquire some more. Firstly you can buy new boxes in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However since you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you can choose a more budget-friendly way. Try visiting your local stores and see if they have any cardboards they don’t need any more. Shops usually have a great amount of unneeded cardboards and most of the time they are willing to share.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, especially for transporting textiles and small stuff. There is a quite bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient choice for storing textiles, magazines as well as little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for shipping items with edges (like books, cutlery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult loads to transport are houseplants. It is usually safest to transport them by yourself, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. A day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to let them take in what they can prior to placing them in a cardboard (you have to get rid of the extra water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Selecting suitable hauler
Obviously, besides properly securing your load for the time of transportation, it is also important to choose a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is important, especially on longer, international routes, however it’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping all your belongings you need to firstly consider if your load will be safe in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible transport providers all the questions you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you may check out reviews given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than feedback left by a person who’s already hired the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is pretty hard to asses, as it varies considerably due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If you plan to ship a lot of fragile items, the price is probable to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are frequently more economical than moving your things into another country.
