Changing house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can encounter in our days. And even though we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most trying happenings possible. Just figuring out the logistics of shipping all your belongings between houses is a very large job and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as selecting the right company to assist you with removal, it becomes truly huge as well as very stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you need to remember while packing is that you should create a coherent plan 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 also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a great deal of various items, among them a lot of little things that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to your new home safely. Another crucial step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more useful methods of labelling boxes is by category. So all the kitchen supplies as well as devices should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as jewellery in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the transporting car.
Take special care with delicate things. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric or bubble wrap as well as tag them clearly (together with a “This way up” sign). You also need to ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting delicate goods as well as which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to empty them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside individually. Any loose things inside closets or drawers can harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape so that they cannot open on the road. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture from the apartment, make sure 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 move them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only way to transport them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing smaller things, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., cardboards will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that … you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a couple of ways to get additional boxes. For example you can acquire new boxes in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However since you’ll probably require quite a few cardboards, you can choose a more budget-friendly way. Visit your local stores and ask if they have any boxes they no longer need. Stores tend to have a lot of unnecessary cardboards and they are usually willing to share.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting textiles and small items. There is a quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate choice when packing clothes, magazines and small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to breaking, should you decide to use them for storing items with edges (for example books, stationery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult things to transport are houseplants. It is always smartest to transport them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be transporting. A day before the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to putting them in a box (you must pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Selecting the best hauler
Certainly, aside from properly securing your cargo for the shipment, it is also crucial to select a suitable transport provider. What factors should you acknowledge while selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, especially on longer, routes between countries, however that’s just one of the factors. Whenever transporting everything you have you should firstly take into consideration if your load will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you may check out reviews left by former customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than feedback given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite hard to asses, because it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If you are transporting a lot of fragile things, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually more economical than moving your load into another country.
