Moving to a new house is one of the most common situations we can come across in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most trying happenings possible. Just figuring out the organization of transporting everything you have between houses is quite a task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and selecting the best transport provider to assist you with removal, it becomes truly colossal as well as very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you need to remember while packing is that you should create a clear plan that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to make a list of every item you want transported. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were safely shipped to its place of destination. Removal calls for 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 ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next important step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you can. One of the most useful ways of labelling boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen supplies and devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and personal items in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting vehicle.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate things. Enclose 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 knows that he’ll be transporting fragile goods and which boxes requires handling with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them before the removal and ship everything that was inside individually. Any loose things inside cupboards or drawers could harm your furniture on the road. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they cannot open during transportation. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Before attempting to move your furniture from the house, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you can transport them without dismantling (be sure to have at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the only method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as screws gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart when you want to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing minor items, like magazines, tableware, cosmetics et … c., boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a few ways to get additional boxes. Firstly you can buy new cardboards in all home-improvement and construction stores. However since you’ll most likely require lots of boxes, you can decide upon a more budget-friendly way. Go to nearby stores and see if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops usually possess a lot of needless cardboards and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles and small stuff. There is a quite bigger possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient choice for packing textiles, magazines and small things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and susceptible to breaking, if you decide to use them for shipping items with hard corners (like books, stationery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most difficult items to ship are houseplants. It’s obviously safest to ship them individually, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he is going to ship. One day before the transportation water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the shipment, but also to allow them to take in what they can prior to putting the plants in a box (you have to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Selecting suitable transport provider
Certainly, besides properly securing your load for the shipment, it is also crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. What factors must you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Price, of course, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever transporting everything you have you need to firstly take into consideration if your cargo will be safe in the hands of the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers all the questions you need answered before making your decision about a transport provider but moreover you can read reviews given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much is more believable than feedback left by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is quite hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is or how long the route is. If you are transporting many fragile things, the price is probable to be higher. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are usually less pricey than transporting your load across borders.
