Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can encounter in our life. And despite the fact we change the place we live in averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most trying happenings that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of moving all your belongings from one place to another is quite a task and when you add securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the suitable company to assist you with removal, it becomes really colossal as well as quite stressful. Thankfully there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent list of steps that you’ll have to abide by during the move. It is best to make a list of every item you want to transport. Such a list will not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all your belongings were successfully shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of various items, among them a lot 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 the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you are able to. One of the most helpful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as blankets in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, so that you (as well as the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be placed inside the shipping car.
Take special care with fragile goods. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles or bubble wrap and tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting delicate goods and which cardboards requires handling with caution.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal and transport everything that was inside individually. Any loose things inside closets or cabinets could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Before attempting to move your furniture from the house, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without disassembling (be sure to have at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to transport them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – be sure to have all the nails as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you need to fill the shipping car to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing minor things, such as books, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the smartest … choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a couple of methods to get additional boxes. Firstly you may acquire new boxes in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But as you’ll most likely need quite a few cardboards, you can choose a more economical method. Go to your local stores and ask if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops tend to possess a lot of unneeded boxes and they are usually willing to share.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for storing clothes as well as little items. There is a much higher chance that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate choice for storing textiles, magazines and small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as prone to breaking, if you choose to use them for storing items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery etc.). Moreover – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most tricky items to ship are houseplants. It’s obviously safest to ship them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. One day before the move water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing the plants in a cardboard (you have to pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Searching for suitable hauler
Certainly, besides suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is equally important to find a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is important, especially on lengthy, international routes, but that’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping everything you have you need to in the first place think if your load will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers every question you require an answer to before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you may check out reviews left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by a person who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is quite difficult to asses, because it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or how long the route is. If you are transporting many fragile items, the cost is probable to be higher. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are normally less pricey than transporting your load into another country.
