Changing house is among the most common situations we can come across in our life. And despite the fact we move at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most trying activities possible. Just figuring out the organization of shipping all your belongings from one place to another is a very large job and when you add packing, unpacking as well as selecting the suitable transport provider to assist you with removal, it seems really huge and very stressful. Thankfully there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as possible as well as considerably less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for shipment
The most important tip you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise list of steps that you’ll have to abide by through the whole process. It is smart to create an inventory of every item you need to transport. It will not only help you pack but also will allow you to check if all of your things were safely transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a big amount of stuff, including a lot of little items that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all arrived to your new home safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most helpful ways of labelling cardboards is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories and appliances go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and blankets in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the hauler) can be sure which box goes where, no matter how they will be stacked in the transporting car.
Take special care with fragile goods. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles and bubble wrap and label them clearly (including a “This way up” label). You also need to ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping delicate load as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them prior to the removal and ship everything that was inside individually. Any unattached items inside closets and cabinets could harm your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they cannot open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the transporting vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture out of the house, 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 so, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the sole way to transport them without harm. Be cautious with that – make sure you store all the pins as well as bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you want to use the transporting car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing smaller things, such as books, tableware, decorations etc., boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s most likely that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all you … r belongings – but there is a couple of ways to get some more. For example you can get new cardboards in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However since you’ll probably need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more affordable way. Go to nearby shops and see if they have any cardboards they don’t need any more. Shops usually have a great amount of needless cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing textiles and small stuff. There is a quite higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient alternative when packing clothes, magazines as well as little things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as susceptible to breaking, if you choose to use them for shipping things with edges (for example books, stationery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult loads to ship are houseplants. It is always smartest to transport them personally, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the hauler is aware of what he is going to ship. One day prior to the transportation water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can before placing them in a box (you must pour off the excess water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Selecting the best hauler
Obviously, aside from suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally important to find a suitable transport provider. What factors should you consider while making your decision? Price, of course, is of importance, especially on longer, international routes, however that’s only one of the things to consider. When transporting everything you have you need to in the first place think if your things will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective haulers all the questions you need answered before deciding upon a hauler but also you may check out feedback left by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If your removal consist of many delicate items, the price is likely to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are normally cheaper than moving your things across borders.
