Moving to a new house is one of the most common happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking situations that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of moving all your belongings between houses is quite a job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the right hauler to help you with the move, it becomes really huge as well as very nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you should remember while packing is that you should create a coherent list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is good to make an inventory of every item you want shipped. Such a list will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a big amount of various items, including a big amount of little items that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to your new home safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the most useful methods of tagging boxes is by the room name. So all the kitchen supplies as well as devices should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and jewellery in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the shipping vehicle.
Take special care with delicate things. Enclose them in protective layers of textiles or bubble wrap as well as tag them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping delicate goods as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal and transport everything that was inside individually. Any unattached items inside cupboards or cabinets can damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they won’t open during shipment. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping car. Before trying to move your furniture from the apartment, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you can transport them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only way to ship them safely. Be careful with that – make sure you have all the pins and screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also smart when you need to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing smaller things, like magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the … smartest choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. For example you can buy new boxes in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. But since you’ll most likely require quite a few boxes, you can decide upon a more economical method. Try visiting your local shops and ask if they have any cardboards they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a great amount of needless boxes and they are usually happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing textiles as well as small items. There is a quite bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be an adequate alternative for storing clothes, magazines and small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as susceptible to tearing, should you choose to use them for shipping items with edges (like books, stationery etc.). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most difficult items to ship are houseplants. It’s usually smartest to ship them personally, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the hauler is aware of what he is going to transport. One day prior to the move water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but also to let them absorb what they can prior to putting the plants in a cardboard (you must pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Selecting suitable hauler
Of course, aside from properly securing your items for the removal, it is also important to select a suitable hauler. What factors must you take into consideration when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, especially on longer, international routes, however it’s just 1 factor. Whenever shipping everything you have you should firstly consider if your things will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before making your decision about a transport provider but moreover you may check out reviews given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than feedback given by a person who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is really 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 you plan to ship many fragile items, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – domestic routes are frequently more economical than shipping your things across borders.
