Moving to a new apartment is one of the most common happenings we can encounter in our life. And even though we change the place we live in at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most trying activities possible. Just working out the logistics of moving all your belongings between houses is a very large job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best transport provider to assist you with the move, it seems really colossal and very stressful. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and considerably less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for shipment
One crucial thing you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will abide by during the move. It is good to make an inventory of all the things you want shipped. Such a list can not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a big amount of various items, including a big amount of little things that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will help you check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another important step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more useful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen supplies as well as devices should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and jewellery in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, 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.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate items. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric and bubble foil and label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile goods as well as which cardboards requires handling with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them prior to the removal and ship all the things inside individually. Any unattached items in closets or drawers can damage your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they won’t open on the road. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Ahead of trying 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 so, you can move them without disassembling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the sole way to move them safely. Be careful with that – make sure you have all the nails and screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also smart whenever you want to fill the shipping car to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing smaller things, such as books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s very possible that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all y … our belongings – but there is a few ways to get some more. For example you can get new cardboards in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely need quite a few cardboards, you may choose a more budget-friendly way. Try visiting your local stores and ask if they have any cardboards they don’t need any more. Shops tend to have a great amount of unnecessary cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for storing textiles and small stuff. There is a much higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be a decent choice when storing textiles, magazines and little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than boxes and prone to breaking, should you decide to use them for transporting items with hard corners (like books, cutlery and so on). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
One of the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It is always best to ship them personally, 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 prior to the move water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but also to let them take in what they can before placing the plants in a box (you must get rid of the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Selecting the best hauler
Certainly, besides suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally crucial to select a suitable hauler. Which aspects of transportation should you acknowledge when making your decision? Price, certainly, is important, particularly on lengthy, routes between countries, but it’s only one of the factors. Whenever shipping all your belongings you need to firstly take into consideration if your cargo will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but also you may check out reviews left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to asses, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or how long the route is. If your removal consist of many delicate things, the price is likely to be higher. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are normally more economical than shipping your items into another country.
