Got the job done even tho Ruslan had to hire a van as his was on for repair.
Had a move of 20 m3 furniture, packages and bicycles from nothern germany to Greece. Transport service was very good. Litt delay due to boarder queues. Mr.Vasileios works thoroughly and is very kind. For future transports we would ask Mr.Vasileios again.
Dominik made a fantastic job! Very nice and reliable guy. All my belongings were in Germany within 3 days. Would definitely recommend him!! Thanks again :)
Changing apartment is one of the most ordinary happenings we can experience in our life. And even though we change the place we live in averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking activities possible. Just working out the organization of moving everything you have between houses is quite a job and with packing, unpacking as well as selecting the suitable transport provider to assist you with the move, it seems truly huge and quite nerve-wracking. Thankfully there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible and significantly less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your items for shipment
The most important tip you have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a clear plan that you will stick to through the whole process. It is good 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 your belongings were successfully transported to its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a great deal of stuff, among them a big amount of little items that can be easily misplaced 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. The next crucial step is tagging all the boxes as clearly as you can. One of the more common methods of labelling boxes is by the room name. For example all the kitchen accessories as well as devices go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as blankets in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll quickly find out how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, so that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, regardless of how they will be placed in the transporting car.
Take special care when preparing to transport delicate items. Enclose them in thick layers of textiles and bubble wrap and label them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate cargo and which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s crucial to take everything out of them prior to the removal and ship everything that was inside separately. Any loose things in closets and drawers could damage your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape to make sure they won’t open during shipment. You can use regular Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Before trying to move your furniture from the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (find at least 1 person to help you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the sole method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to have all the pins as well as screws gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to use the shipping car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing minor items, such as books, kitchen appliances, decorations and so on, boxes will be the most obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you will need more boxes than … you have – but there is a few methods to get additional boxes. Firstly you can acquire new cardboards in all home-improvement and construction stores. However since you’ll probably require quite a few boxes, you may decide upon a more economical way. Visit nearby stores and see if they have any boxes they don’t need any more. Stores tend to have a great amount of unneeded boxes and most of the time they are happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, especially for storing textiles as well as little items. There is a much higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be an adequate choice for packing textiles, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards and susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for storing things with hard corners (like 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 tricky items to ship are houseplants. It is usually smartest to ship them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, you need to be certain that the hauler knows what he will be shipping. One day before the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to take in what they can prior to putting them in a cardboard (you have to get rid of the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t accidentally leak through the box).
Choosing the right hauler
Of course, apart from properly securing your cargo for the removal, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. What aspects of transportation should you acknowledge when making your decision? Price, obviously, is of importance, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever shipping all your belongings you have to firstly think if your things will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible haulers every question you require an answer to before making your decision about a hauler but also you can check out feedback left by former customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews given by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are considering.
Prices of removal
The cost of removal is quite hard to estimate, because it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as how long the route is. If you are transporting many fragile items, the price is probable to go up. The same goes for international removals – domestic routes are frequently more economical than shipping your items into another country.
