Changing apartment is among the most ordinary situations we can come across in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most stressful happenings possible. Just working out the logistics of transporting all your belongings between houses is a very large job and when you add packing, unpacking and selecting the suitable transport provider to help you with the move, it becomes really huge and very stressful. Thankfully there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for shipment
The most important tip you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear plan that you’ll have to abide by through the whole process. It is good to create a list of all the things you want shipped. Such a list can not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, including a lot of small things that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most common ways of tagging cardboards is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as jewellery in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget 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 placed in the transporting vehicle.
Take special care with delicate items. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles as well as bubble wrap and then label them clearly (together with a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting fragile goods and which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal and transport all the things inside individually. Any loose items in cupboards and drawers could damage your furniture on the road. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open on the road. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Before attempting 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’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only way to move them safely. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you 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 properly. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever packing smaller items, like magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and much more, cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes tha … n you have – but there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. But as you’ll probably require quite a few boxes, you may decide upon a more economical method. Try visiting nearby stores and see if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops usually possess a great amount of unneeded boxes and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for storing clothes as well as small items. There is a much bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a decent choice when storing textiles, magazines and little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for transporting things with edges (for example books, stationery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult things to ship are houseplants. It’s obviously smartest to ship them personally, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. A day before the shipment water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but also to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing them in a container (you must get rid of the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Searching for the best hauler
Of course, aside from properly securing your load for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. What factors must you take into consideration when making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is important, especially on longer, routes between countries, but that’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever transporting everything you have you should in the first place take into consideration if your load will be safe in the hands of the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but also you can read feedback given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than feedback left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult to estimate, because it varies considerably because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If you are transporting many fragile things, the cost is probable to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are normally less pricey than transporting your things into another country.
