Changing apartment is among the most common happenings we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most nerve-wracking activities that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting everything you have from one place to another is an enormous task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the right hauler to assist you with removal, it becomes really huge and quite nerve-wracking. Luckily there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for transportation
The most important thing you should remember while packing is that you should create a precise list of steps that you will abide by through the whole process. It is good to create an inventory of all the things you want to transport. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to check if all of your things were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal calls for shipping a big amount of various items, among them a big amount of little things that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next important step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more helpful ways of tagging cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and jewellery in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, so that you (as well as the transport provider) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the shipping vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Wrap them in thick layers of textiles as well as bubble foil as well as label them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You also need to make sure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile cargo as well as which cardboards requires handling with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside separately. Any loose things inside closets and cabinets could damage your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open on the road. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Before attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you can transport them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to move them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to store all the pins as well as bolts in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you need to fill the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing minor thi … ngs, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and so on, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few methods to get some more. For example you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely need quite a few boxes, you may choose a more economical way. Visit your local shops and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Stores usually possess a great amount of unnecessary cardboards and most of the time they are happy to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting clothes as well as little items. There is a quite bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate alternative for packing clothes, magazines as well as small items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as susceptible to breaking, should you choose to use them for storing items with hard corners (like books, cutlery and such). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most difficult things to transport are houseplants. It’s always safest to transport them by yourself, but if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider is aware of what he is going to ship. A day before the transportation water the plants generously 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 before placing the plants in a cardboard (you must pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the box).
Searching for the right hauler
Obviously, apart from properly securing your items for the removal, it is also crucial to select a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you take into consideration when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but that’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping all your belongings you have to firstly think if your cargo will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but also you may read feedback left by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much is more believable than feedback left by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to asses, because it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as the route length. If your removal consist of many fragile items, the cost is likely to be higher. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are usually more economical than moving your items into another country.
