Changing apartment is among the most common happenings we can experience in our life. And even though we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most trying happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of moving everything you have between houses is an enormous task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as selecting the right company to help you with the move, it becomes truly colossal and quite stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as simple as can be as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for shipment
The most important thing you need to remember while packing is that you should create a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to create an inventory of all the things you want transported. It can not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a big amount of stuff, among them a lot of little items that can be easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – a list will help you make sure they all made it to your new home safely. Another important step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more helpful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies and appliances should be placed into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as jewellery in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out 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) can be sure which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the shipping car.
Take special care with fragile things. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric or bubble foil as well as tag them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You also need to ensure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile goods as well as which boxes have to be handled with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s crucial to take everything out of them before the removal and ship all the things inside individually. Any loose things inside closets and cabinets could harm your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You may use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Before 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 building has one). If they do, you can transport them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the only method to move them without harm. Be cautious with that – make sure you have all the pins as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing minor things, such as books, kitchen appliances, decorations etc., boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s very possible that you will need more bo … xes than you have – but there is a few ways to get some more. For example you can buy new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. However since you’ll most likely require quite a few cardboards, you may choose a more affordable way. Visit nearby stores and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually possess a great amount of needless boxes and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, especially for transporting clothes as well as little items. There is a much higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as an adequate alternative for packing textiles, magazines and small things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to tearing, if you decide to use them for shipping things with edges (for example books, stationery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It is usually smartest to transport them personally, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to ship. One day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but also to allow them to absorb what they can before putting the plants in a container (you have to pour off the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Choosing the right transport provider
Certainly, apart from properly securing your cargo for the time of transportation, it is also crucial to find a suitable hauler. Which factors should you consider when selecting the right person? Price, obviously, is of importance, especially on lengthy, routes between countries, however it’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping everything you have you need to in the first place consider if your load will be properly protected when given to the hauler. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a transport provider but also you can read feedback given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than feedback given by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If you are transporting a lot of fragile items, the cost is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are usually cheaper than transporting your items across borders.
