Changing house is among the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And even though we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most trying happenings possible. Just working out the organization of transporting all your belongings from one place to another is quite a job and when you add packing, unpacking as well as choosing the suitable company to assist you with the move, it becomes truly huge as well as quite nerve-wracking. Luckily there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for transportation
The most important tip you have to remember while packing is that you should create a clear list of steps that you will abide by during the move. It is good to make an inventory of every item you need to transport. It will not only help you pack but additionally 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, including a lot of little items that are easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – an inventory will help you make sure they all arrived to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most useful methods of tagging cardboards is by the room name. For example all the kitchen supplies and appliances go into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as jewellery in the cardboards labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, so that you (and the hauler) can be sure which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the shipping car.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile items. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric and bubble foil and then tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” label). You also need to 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 important to take everything out of them before the removal and ship all the things inside separately. Any loose things in closets or drawers can harm your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they cannot open during shipment. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture inside the transporting car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to move them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to have all the pins and bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you want to use the shipping vehicle to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing smaller things, such as magazines, tableware, decorations and so on, boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s probable that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – ho … wever there is a couple of methods to get some more. Firstly you can buy new boxes in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However since you’ll most likely need lots of cardboards, you can choose a more affordable method. Go to nearby stores and see if they have some cardboards they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a great amount of needless boxes and they are usually willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles and small stuff. There is a much higher possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient alternative for packing clothes, magazines and small items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for transporting items with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most tricky items to ship are houseplants. It is usually smartest to transport them individually, but if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. A day before the transportation water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the shipment, but it’s equally important to let them take in what they can prior to placing them in a box (you need to get rid of the excess water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Selecting the best hauler
Of course, aside from properly securing your cargo for the time of transportation, it is also important to select a suitable transport provider. Which factors should you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is of importance, particularly on lengthy, routes between countries, but that’s only 1 factor. When transporting everything you have you have to in the first place take into consideration if your load will be properly protected when given to the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers every question you need answered before making your decision about a hauler but moreover you can read reviews given by former customers on every transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more reliable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is pretty difficult to asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or the route length. If your removal consist of a lot of delicate items, the price is probable to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually more economical than transporting your load across borders.
