Moving to a new house is among the most common situations we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most nerve-wracking happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of shipping all your belongings between houses is quite a task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the right hauler to assist you with the move, it seems truly huge and very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be and significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you should remember while packing is that you should create a coherent plan that you will stick to through the whole process. It is good to create an inventory of every item you want shipped. Such a list will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully transported to your new home. Removal entails transporting a great deal of various items, among them a lot of small things that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the more common methods of tagging cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen supplies as well as devices go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as blankets in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the box, so that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate goods. Enclose them in protective layers of textiles as well as bubble foil as well as tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile goods as well as which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s important to empty them before the removal as well as ship all the things inside individually. Any loose things inside closets or cabinets can damage 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 shipment. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture from the house, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you can move them without dismantling (be sure to have at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the sole way to ship them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to store all the pins as well as screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea when you want to use the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller things, such as magazines, tableware, decorations etc. … , boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However since you’ll most likely require quite a few boxes, you can choose a more affordable way. Try visiting nearby shops and ask if they have some cardboards they don’t need any more. Shops tend to possess a great amount of unneeded cardboards and they are usually willing to share.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles and small items. There is a much bigger chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a decent alternative when packing clothes, magazines and little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes and prone to breaking, if you decide to use them for shipping things with hard corners (for example books, cutlery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously safest to move them personally, but if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler knows what he will be transporting. A day before the transportation water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can before placing the plants in a container (you need to get rid of the extra water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Selecting the best hauler
Of course, apart from properly securing your items for the shipment, it is equally important to select a suitable hauler. What factors must you acknowledge while selecting the right person? Price, certainly, is important, especially on lengthy, international routes, but it’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping everything you have you need to firstly think if your things will be safe in the hands of the transport provider. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you can check out feedback given by previous customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by someone 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 changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is or the route length. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile things, the price is probable to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – routes within one country are usually cheaper than transporting your items into another country.
