Moving to a new apartment is among the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our life. And even though we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking situations possible. Just figuring out the logistics of shipping all your belongings from one place to another is an enormous job and with packing, unpacking and choosing the right transport provider to assist you with removal, it seems really huge and very nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your items for transportation
One crucial tip you should remember while packing is that you need a precise list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is smart to make an inventory of every item you need to transport. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a big amount of various items, among them a lot of small things that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the more helpful ways of labelling cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as personal items in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the transporting vehicle.
Be extra careful with delicate items. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles or bubble wrap as well as label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” label). You should also ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile cargo and which cardboards requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them prior to the removal and transport everything that was inside separately. Any loose things inside closets and drawers could damage your furniture on the road. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open during shipment. You may use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture from the apartment, make sure that they will fit through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you can transport them without dismantling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only method to move them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – be sure to have all the nails as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also smart whenever you need to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing minor things, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and so on, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – h … owever there is a couple of methods to get some more. Firstly you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But since you’ll probably need quite a few boxes, you may decide upon a more budget-friendly method. Try visiting nearby stores and see if they have any boxes they don’t need any more. Stores usually have a great amount of needless cardboards and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes and little items. There is a much higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient alternative when packing textiles, magazines as well as small items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes as well as susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for transporting items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and such). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It is always smartest to ship them personally, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler is aware of what he is going to transport. A day before the transportation water the plants thoroughly and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to allow them to absorb what they can before placing them in a container (you need to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Searching for suitable transport provider
Certainly, aside from suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is also important to choose a suitable hauler. Which aspects of transportation should you consider when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is important, particularly on lengthy, international routes, but that’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping everything you have you need to firstly consider if your cargo will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective transport providers all the questions you need answered before deciding upon a transport provider but also you may check out feedback given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really hard to estimate, because it varies considerably due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is or how long the route is. If your removal consist of many fragile things, the price is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are usually more economical than shipping your load into another country.
