Changing house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can come across in our life. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most stressful activities that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of moving everything you have from one place to another is a very large task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to assist you with removal, it becomes truly huge as well as very stressful. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for transportation
The most important thing you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a clear plan that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is best to create a list of all the things you want to ship. It can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all your belongings were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a big amount of stuff, including a big amount of little things that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – an inventory will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to your new home safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as clearly as you can. One of the more helpful methods of tagging cardboards is by the room name. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as appliances should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and jewellery in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the box, so that you (as well as the transport provider) can be sure which box goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the shipping car.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile goods. Wrap them in protective layers of textiles as well as bubble foil as well as label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate cargo as well as which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside individually. Any loose items in closets or drawers could damage your furniture during shipment. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they cannot open during transportation. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Before trying to move your furniture out of the house, make sure that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (be sure to have at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the sole method to move them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you have all the pins as well as bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing smaller items, such as magazines, kitchen appliances, decoration … s etc., boxes will be the most efficient choice. It’s most likely that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely require lots of boxes, you can choose a more budget-friendly method. Visit your local stores and ask if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Stores tend to possess a lot of unneeded cardboards and most of the time they are willing to share.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting clothes as well as little items. There is a much bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will be an adequate alternative when packing textiles, magazines and small items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes and prone to tearing, should you choose to use them for storing things with hard corners (like books, cutlery etc.). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
Among the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It is always smartest to ship them personally, however if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the transport provider knows what he is going to ship. A day prior to the shipment water the plants thoroughly and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but also to let them absorb what they can prior to placing them in a container (you need to pour off the excess water from the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Searching for suitable transport provider
Of course, aside from properly securing your load for the time of transportation, it is also crucial to find a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration when making your decision? Price, of course, is important, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever transporting all your belongings you should in the first place consider 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 every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but also you can check out feedback given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Nothing is more reliable than feedback left by a person who’s already hired the hauler you are considering.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is really difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo or how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile items, the price is likely to be higher. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are normally more economical than shipping your things into another country.
