Moving to a new apartment is one of the most common situations we can experience in our life. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most stressful activities that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of moving all your belongings from one place to another is quite a task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best transport provider to assist you with removal, it seems truly colossal as well as very stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent plan that you will abide by during the move. It is good to make an inventory of every item you need to transport. It can not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of various items, including a big amount of little items that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you can. One of the most helpful methods of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories and appliances should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, so that you (and the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked inside the shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate things. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles or bubble foil and then tag them clearly (including a “This way up” label). You also need to make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate load and which cardboards requires handling with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them prior to the removal and ship everything that was inside individually. Any loose things in closets or cabinets could harm your furniture during shipment. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they won’t open on the road. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting car. Before 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 building has one). If so, you can move them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the sole way to transport them without harm. Be careful with that – make sure you have all the nails as well as screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart when you need to use the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller items, such as books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and much more, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s very possible t … hat you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – however there is a few ways to get additional boxes. Firstly you may buy new cardboards in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But as you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may decide upon a more affordable method. Go to your local stores and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Shops tend to have a great amount of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are willing to share.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as small items. There is a much bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative when storing clothes, magazines and small things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes and prone to breaking, should you decide to use them for storing things with edges (for example books, stationery and such). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
One of the most tricky things to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously best to ship them individually, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler is aware of what he will be transporting. One day before the move water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them take in what they can prior to putting the plants in a box (you need to get rid of the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Selecting the best hauler
Obviously, apart from properly securing your items for the removal, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you consider when making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is important, particularly on lengthy, routes between countries, however that’s only 1 factor. When shipping everything you have you should in the first place think if your load will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before making your decision about a transport provider but moreover you can check out feedback given by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing is more believable than feedback left by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult 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 you plan to ship a lot of delicate things, the price is likely to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – routes within one country are frequently less pricey than moving your things across borders.
