Moving to a new apartment is one of the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our life. And even though we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of moving everything you have from one place to another is quite a job and with packing, unpacking as well as choosing the suitable transport provider to assist you with the move, it seems really colossal as well as very nerve-wracking. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
The most important thing you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise list of steps that you will abide by during the move. It is smart to create an inventory of all the things you need to transport. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to your new home. Removal entails transporting a big amount of various items, among them a lot of small items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will help you check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next important step is tagging all the boxes as clearly as you can. One of the most useful ways of tagging boxes is by category. So all the kitchen accessories as well as devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as personal items in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, so that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the transporting car.
Be extra careful with fragile items. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric or bubble wrap and label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” label). You should also make sure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile load as well as which boxes requires handling 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 things inside cupboards and drawers can harm your furniture on the road. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open on the road. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture from the house, make sure that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only way to ship them safely. Be careful with that – be sure to have all the nails as well as screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you want to fill the shipping car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller things, such as magazines, tableware, decorations and so on, cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s most likely that you will need more boxes than you have – … however there is a few ways to acquire some more. Firstly you may buy new cardboards in all home-improvement and construction stores. But since you’ll most likely need quite a few boxes, you may decide upon a more affordable way. Go to nearby stores and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Shops usually have a great amount of unnecessary boxes and they are usually happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as little items. There is a quite bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a decent choice for storing clothes, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes as well as susceptible to breaking, if you choose to use them for shipping items with edges (like books, cutlery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most tricky things to transport are houseplants. It is usually smartest to transport them individually, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he will be shipping. A day before the transportation water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the shipment, but it’s equally important to let them take in what they can before placing the plants in a box (you have to pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Choosing suitable hauler
Of course, besides properly securing your load for the shipment, it is also crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. What factors should you acknowledge while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is of importance, especially on longer, international routes, however it’s only one of the factors. When transporting all your belongings you should in the first place take into consideration if your cargo will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before making your decision about a transport provider but also you can check out reviews left by former customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile things, the price is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are normally cheaper than moving your things into another country.
