Changing apartment is one of the most common situations we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most stressful happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of moving everything you have between houses is an enormous job and with packing, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to assist you with the move, it seems truly colossal as well as quite nerve-wracking. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as can be and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent plan that you’ll have to stick to during the move. It is good to make an inventory of all the things you want to ship. It will not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully transported to your new home. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, among them a lot of small items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to your new home safely. Another important step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the most common methods of labelling cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen supplies and appliances go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as jewellery in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. 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 box, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the shipping car.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric as well as bubble wrap as well as tag them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile load and which cardboards requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to empty them prior to the removal as well as transport all the things inside separately. Any unattached things inside closets and cabinets could harm your furniture on the road. Additionally it is good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open on the road. You may use regular Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Before trying to move your furniture from the house, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the only method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – make sure you store all the pins and screws 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 whenever you want to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing smaller things, such as books, kitchen appliances, decorations and much more, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s almost certain that you … will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few ways to acquire some more. Firstly you can acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement and construction stores. But as you’ll probably need lots of boxes, you can choose a more economical way. Visit nearby stores and ask if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually have a great amount of needless boxes and they are usually willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting textiles and little stuff. There is a quite bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as a decent choice when packing textiles, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to tearing, should you choose to use them for transporting things with hard corners (for example books, stationery and so on). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards the same way.
Among the most tricky loads to ship are houseplants. It is usually smartest to ship them personally, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider is aware of what he will be transporting. One day before the removal water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can before putting them in a container (you must pour off the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Choosing the best hauler
Of course, apart from properly securing your cargo for the removal, it is also important to find a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you take into consideration when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, obviously, is important, especially on longer, routes between countries, but that’s just one of the things to consider. When shipping all your belongings you should firstly think if your load will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers all the questions you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but also you can read reviews left by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than reviews given by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If you plan to ship a lot of fragile items, the price is likely to go up. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are normally more economical than moving your load across borders.
