Dominik made a fantastic job! Very nice and reliable guy. All my belongings were in Germany within 3 days. Would definitely recommend him!! Thanks again :)
Had a move of 20 m3 furniture, packages and bicycles from nothern germany to Greece. Transport service was very good. Litt delay due to boarder queues. Mr.Vasileios works thoroughly and is very kind. For future transports we would ask Mr.Vasileios again.
Moving to a new house is among the most common situations we can experience in our days. 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 happenings possible. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting everything you have between houses is quite a job and with packing, unpacking as well as choosing the best transport provider to assist you with the move, it becomes really huge and very nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as possible as well as significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial thing you need to remember while packing is that you should create a coherent plan that you will abide by during the move. It is smart to make a list of every item you want shipped. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of stuff, including a lot of little items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all made it to your new home safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more helpful methods of tagging boxes is by the room name. For example all the kitchen supplies and devices go into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as personal items in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out 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 (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting car.
Take special care with delicate things. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric or bubble foil and label them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping delicate cargo as well as which boxes requires handling with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s imperative to empty them prior to the removal and ship everything that was inside separately. Any unattached things inside cupboards and drawers can harm your furniture on the road. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors as well as 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 into the shipping car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture from the apartment, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (make sure that you have at least one person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to transport them safely. Be cautious with dismantling – make sure you store all the nails as well as screws gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing minor items, such as books, tableware, decorations and much more, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s almost certain that … you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement or construction stores. But as you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may decide upon a more affordable way. Visit nearby shops and see if they have any boxes they no longer need. Shops usually have a lot of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing clothes as well as small items. There is a quite higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as a decent choice for packing clothes, magazines as well as little things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than cardboards and susceptible to tearing, should you choose to use them for transporting things with hard corners (for example books, stationery etc.). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most difficult loads to transport are houseplants. It is obviously safest to move them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the transport provider knows what he is going to transport. One day prior to the move water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can prior to putting the plants in a box (you must get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Selecting the best hauler
Of course, besides suitably securing your items for the shipment, it is equally crucial to select a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation should you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Price, certainly, is important, especially on lengthy, international routes, but it’s only one of the factors. When shipping all your belongings you have to in the first place consider if your load will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers all the questions you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you can read reviews left by previous customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Not much can be more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is really hard to asses, because it varies considerably because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If you are transporting many fragile items, the cost is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – routes within one country are usually less pricey than transporting your things into another country.
