Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most stressful situations that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting all your belongings from one place to another is quite a job and with packing, unpacking and choosing the best transport provider to assist you with removal, it seems truly colossal and very stressful. Thankfully there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for shipment
The most important thing you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a precise list of steps that you will stick to during the move. It is smart to make a list of all the things you want to transport. It will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a big amount of stuff, including a lot of little things that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will help you make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the more common methods of labelling cardboards is by the room name. For example all the kitchen supplies as well as devices should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and personal items in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, so that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the shipping car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate things. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric and bubble wrap and label them clearly (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler knows 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 prior to the removal and ship all the things inside separately. Any unattached things in closets and drawers could damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they won’t open during shipment. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only way to move them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as bolts 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 convenient whenever you need to use the shipping car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing minor things, like magazines, kitchen appliances, decorations etc., cardboards will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you won’t have enough boxes … to fit all your belongings – but there is a few methods to get additional boxes. For example you may get new boxes in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. But since you’ll probably need lots of boxes, you can decide upon a more budget-friendly method. Visit your local stores and ask if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Stores usually possess a great amount of unnecessary boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as small items. There is a quite higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate choice when packing textiles, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes as well as susceptible to breaking, should you choose to use them for storing things with hard corners (like books, cutlery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It is usually safest to transport them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. A day before the move water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them take in what they can prior to placing them in a container (you need to get rid of the excess water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Choosing the best hauler
Of course, besides properly securing your items for the time of transportation, it is equally important to choose a suitable hauler. Which factors must you consider while selecting the right person? Price, obviously, is important, especially on longer, international routes, however that’s only one of the factors. Whenever transporting all your belongings you have to in the first place consider if your things will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. 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 can read feedback given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult 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 plan to ship many fragile items, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually less pricey than shipping your load into another country.
