Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can encounter in our life. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most trying happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of shipping all your belongings from one place to another is quite a task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to help you with the move, it becomes truly colossal as well as quite stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as simple as can be and considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for transportation
One crucial tip you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to make a list of every item you need to ship. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were safely transported to your new home. Removal entails shipping a big amount of stuff, including a big amount of little items that can be easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to your new home safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you can. One of the more helpful ways of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories and devices should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘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 tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the hauler) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting vehicle.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate items. Wrap them in thick layers of textiles and bubble wrap as well as label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping delicate cargo and which boxes have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to empty them before the removal and ship all the things inside individually. Any loose things inside closets and drawers could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture from the house, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you can transport them without disassembling (be sure to have at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole method to ship them without harm. Be careful with that – be sure to have all the nails and bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to use the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever securing smaller items, like magazines, tableware, decorations and much more, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s probable that you will need more … boxes than you have – however there is a few methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. However since you’ll probably need quite a few cardboards, you can choose a more economical way. Go to your local shops and see if they have any boxes they don’t need any more. Shops usually possess a lot of needless boxes and they are usually happy to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for transporting textiles and little stuff. There is a quite higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate choice when storing clothes, magazines and little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for storing things with edges (for example books, stationery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most tricky loads to transport are houseplants. It is obviously smartest to move them personally, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he is going to ship. One day prior to the transportation water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing them in a cardboard (you must get rid of the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Selecting the best transport provider
Of course, aside from properly securing your items for the shipment, it is equally important to choose a suitable hauler. Which factors should you consider when making your decision? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, especially on longer, international routes, but it’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping all your belongings you have to in the first place think if your cargo will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you can read reviews left by previous customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much is more believable than reviews given by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If your removal consist of many fragile items, the price is probable to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually less pricey than transporting your load across borders.
