Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can encounter in our days. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking happenings possible. Just working out the logistics of moving all your belongings from one place to another is an enormous job and with packing, unpacking as well as choosing the best company to assist you with removal, it becomes truly colossal as well as very stressful. Luckily there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
The most important thing you need to remember while packing is that you need a clear list of steps that you will stick to during the move. It is smart to create a list of every item you need to ship. It can not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to check if all of your things were safely transported to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a great deal of stuff, including a lot of small things that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – an inventory will help you check if they all made it to your new home safely. The next important step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the most common ways of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and jewellery in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, regardless of how they will be placed inside the transporting car.
Take special care with fragile things. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric as well as bubble foil and label them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You should also make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping delicate load and which cardboards have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to empty them before the removal and transport everything that was inside individually. Any loose items in closets or drawers could harm your furniture on the road. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open on the road. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Before attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you can move them without disassembling (find at least one person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with dismantling – 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 want to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing minor things, like books, kitchen appliances, decorations and so on, cardboards will be the most obvious choice. It’s most likely that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – but there is a couple of methods to acquire … additional boxes. For example you may buy new boxes in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. But as you’ll probably need quite a few boxes, you may choose a more economical way. Try visiting your local shops and see if they have any boxes they no longer need. Shops tend to have a great amount of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting clothes as well as little stuff. There is a much higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative for packing textiles, magazines and little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as susceptible to breaking, should you choose to use them for transporting things with edges (like books, stationery and so on). Moreover – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards the same way.
Among the most tricky loads to ship are houseplants. It’s usually best to move them individually, 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 prior to the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but also to let them take in what they can prior to placing 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 suitable hauler
Obviously, apart from properly securing your items for the time of transportation, it is equally important to find a suitable transport provider. What factors should you consider while selecting the right person? Price, certainly, is of importance, particularly on longer, international routes, however it’s only 1 factor. When shipping everything you have you need to firstly take into consideration if your things will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but also you may check out feedback left by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more reliable than feedback given by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If you are transporting a lot of fragile items, the cost is likely to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are normally less pricey than shipping your things across borders.
