Excellent job with no problems picking up or delivering my motor bike. They forgot to drop off the cover which they then couriered to me at their cost.
Dominic was super friendly, impressive and very helpful in the transport of my 16 boxes from Dublin to Aachen. Very well organized and fairly priced. From planning, pick up, transport and drop off, everything went smooth. We can highly recommend him.
Changing apartment is among the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our days. And despite the fact we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking activities that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of moving everything you have between houses is a very large job and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and selecting the best transport provider to help you with the move, it seems really colossal and very stressful. Luckily there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for transportation
The most important tip you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent plan that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is best to make a list of every item you need to transport. Such a list can not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely transported to your new home. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, including a big amount of little items that are easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to your new home safely. Another crucial step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most helpful ways of tagging cardboards is by category. For example all the kitchen accessories and devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as jewellery in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out 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 transport provider) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be placed inside the transporting vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric as well as bubble wrap and label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping delicate load and which cardboards requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal as well as ship everything that was inside separately. Any unattached items inside closets and cabinets could harm your furniture during shipment. It’s also smart to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Ahead of attempting 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 so, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to move them without harm. Be cautious with that – make sure you store all the nails as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also convenient whenever you need to fill the shipping car to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing minor things, like books, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the smartest choice. … It’s probable that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you may get new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. However as you’ll probably need quite a few cardboards, you may choose a more budget-friendly way. Visit your local stores and see if they have any boxes they no longer need. Shops tend to have a lot of unnecessary cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for storing textiles and small stuff. There is a quite higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as an adequate choice when packing textiles, magazines as well as small items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and prone to breaking, should you decide to use them for shipping items with edges (like books, cutlery and so on). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards the same way.
Among the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It’s usually smartest to move them individually, but if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider is aware of what he is going to ship. A day before the removal water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but also to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing the plants in a cardboard (you must pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the box).
Searching for suitable hauler
Certainly, apart from properly securing your cargo for the time of transportation, it is also crucial to choose a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while selecting the right person? Price, certainly, is of importance, particularly on lengthy, international routes, however that’s just one of the factors. Whenever transporting everything you have you should in the first place take into consideration if your cargo will be safe when given to the transport provider. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers every question you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you may read feedback left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than feedback given by someone who’s already hired the transport provider you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult to asses, because it varies considerably due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If your removal consist of many delicate things, the cost is likely to be higher. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are usually more economical than shipping your items into another country.
