Changing apartment is among the most ordinary happenings we can come across 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 among the most trying situations possible. Just figuring out the organization of transporting everything you have between houses is an enormous task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the right company to help you with the move, it seems really colossal and very nerve-wracking. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for shipment
One crucial tip you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will abide by through the whole process. It is smart to make a list of every item you want to ship. It can not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of various items, including a lot of small items that are easily forgettable 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 tagging all the cardboards as clearly as you can. One of the more helpful ways of tagging boxes is by category. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as devices should be placed into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll quickly find out how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be placed inside the shipping car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate goods. Enclose them in thick layers of fabric as well as bubble foil and then tag them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You also need to ensure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate load as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal as well as ship everything that was inside separately. Any loose things inside closets and drawers could harm your furniture on the road. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that they will fit through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you can transport them without disassembling (make sure that you have 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 – be sure to have all the pins and bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you want to use the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
Whenever packing smaller things, such as magazines, tableware, decorations etc., cardboards will be the most obvious … choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a few ways to get some more. Firstly you can get new cardboards in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. However as you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may decide upon a more budget-friendly method. Visit nearby shops and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops tend to have a lot of unneeded cardboards and they are usually willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes and little stuff. There is a much bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient alternative for packing textiles, magazines and little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards as well as prone to tearing, if you decide to use them for storing items with edges (like books, stationery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes the same way.
Among the most difficult items to ship are houseplants. It is obviously best to transport them individually, however if something prevents you from doing that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to ship. One day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but also to allow them to absorb what they can prior to placing them in a container (you must pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Searching for the best transport provider
Of course, apart from suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. What aspects of transportation should you consider while making your decision? Cost of the service, obviously, is important, especially on lengthy, routes between countries, however that’s just 1 factor. Whenever transporting everything you have you need to in the first place take into consideration if your things will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible haulers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a transport provider but also you may check out reviews given by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to asses, because it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as the route length. If your removal consist of many fragile things, the cost is probable to go up. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually more economical than shipping your items into another country.
