Moving to a new apartment is among the most common happenings we can experience in our days. And even though we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most trying activities that can happen to us. Just working out the organization of moving all your belongings from one place to another is an enormous task and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as choosing the best company to assist you with removal, it seems truly colossal as well as very nerve-wracking. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your items for transportation
The most important tip you have to remember while packing is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will stick to during the move. It is smart to create an inventory of all the things you need to transport. Such a list can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all of your things were safely shipped to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, among them a big amount of little things that are easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next important step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the more common methods of labelling boxes is by category. So all the kitchen supplies and devices go into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and blankets in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised 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) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the transporting car.
Be extra careful with fragile goods. Enclose them in thick layers of fabric or bubble wrap as well as tag them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” label). You should also make sure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be shipping fragile load as well as which cardboards requires handling with care.
When it comes to furniture, it’s crucial to empty them before the removal as well as ship all the things inside separately. Any unattached items in closets or cabinets could harm your furniture on the road. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You can use regular Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the shipping car. Before attempting to move your furniture from the house, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (be sure to have at least one person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole method to ship them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you store all the nails and screws gathered for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also convenient whenever you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing smaller things, like books, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the smartest choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxe … s than you have – but there is a couple of methods to acquire additional boxes. Firstly you may get new boxes in all home-improvement and construction stores. But since you’ll probably require lots of boxes, you may decide upon a more economical way. Go to your local shops and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops usually possess a lot of unneeded cardboards and they are usually willing to share.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, especially for storing clothes and little stuff. There is a much bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient choice for storing clothes, magazines and little things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards and prone to tearing, should you choose to use them for storing items with edges (for example books, cutlery and such). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult things to ship are houseplants. It is always smartest to ship them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler is aware of what he will be shipping. One day prior to the transportation water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s important that the plants have enough water to suffer through the shipment, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to placing them in a box (you have to pour off the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the box).
Searching for suitable hauler
Of course, besides suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to find a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you acknowledge while making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is important, particularly on longer, international routes, however it’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping all your belongings you should in the first place consider if your cargo will be safe when given to the transport provider. Whenever posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like 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 reviews given by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than reviews left by someone who’s already hired the transport provider you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is quite difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as how long the route is. If you plan to ship many delicate items, the price is likely to go up. It’s similar for international removals – domestic routes are usually less pricey than moving your items across borders.
