Changing house is among the most ordinary situations we can encounter in our days. 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 situations possible. Just working out the organization of moving everything you have from one place to another is a very large job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to assist you with removal, it seems really colossal and quite stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as possible and considerably less stressful.
Packing and securing your belongings for shipment
One crucial thing you should remember while packing is that you need a precise plan that you will stick to through the whole process. It is smart to make an inventory of all the things you want shipped. It can not only help you pack but also will allow you to make sure that all of your things were safely transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a big amount of various items, including a lot of small items that can be easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another important step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you can. One of the most helpful methods of labelling boxes is by category. So all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the duvets and personal items in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the cardboard, to make sure that you (as well as the hauler) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be placed inside the shipping vehicle.
Take special care with fragile items. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric as well as bubble wrap as well as label them clearly (together with a “This way up” label). You should also make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be shipping fragile load and which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to empty them before the removal and transport everything that was inside individually. Any unattached items inside closets and drawers can harm your furniture on the road. It’s also good to secure all the furniture doors and drawers using tape so that they cannot open on the road. You may use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the shipping vehicle. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the house, be certain that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If they do, you can transport them without disassembling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they cannot, disassembling them is the only method to transport them safely. Be careful with that – be sure to have all the pins and bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you need to fill the shipping car to the maximum, as dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever securing smaller items, like books, tableware, decorations etc., cardboards will be the most efficient choice. It’s most likely that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – bu … t there is a couple of methods to get some more. For example you can get new cardboards in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. However as you’ll most likely need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more budget-friendly way. Try visiting nearby stores and see if they have any cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually possess a lot of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are willing to give them away.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting textiles as well as small items. There is a much higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be a sufficient alternative when packing textiles, magazines as well as small things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than boxes and susceptible to tearing, should you decide to use them for storing items with hard corners (like books, stationery and so on). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most tricky items to transport are houseplants. It’s usually best to transport them individually, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler is aware of what he will be shipping. A day before the shipment water the plants generously and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to endure the shipment, but also to allow them to absorb what they can before putting them in a cardboard (you need to pour off the extra water from the saucer, so that it won’t soak through the container).
Selecting the best hauler
Of course, besides suitably securing your items for the shipment, it is also crucial to select a suitable hauler. Which aspects of transportation must you consider when making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is of importance, particularly on longer, international routes, but it’s just 1 factor. Whenever shipping everything you have you should in the first place consider if your things will be properly protected when given to the transport provider. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask prospective haulers every question you need answered before making your decision about a transport provider but also you can read reviews given by previous customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is pretty hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is or how long the route is. If you are transporting a lot of delicate things, the price is probable to go up. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are usually cheaper than transporting your items into another country.
