Dominic was super friendly, impressive and very helpful in the transport of my 16 boxes from Dublin to Aachen. Very well organized and fairly priced. From planning, pick up, transport and drop off, everything went smooth. We can highly recommend him.
I would recomended 100%, the service was really good, he was polite, hard working and adaptable, giving the option to pay in different currency, and doing moves of large distance, with an excellent price, better than a moving company.
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.
Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary happenings we can come across in our life. And even though we move at least a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most stressful activities that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of shipping everything you have from one place to another is quite a job and with packing, unpacking and choosing the suitable transport provider to assist you with the move, it seems truly huge and very nerve-wracking. Fortunately there are a few ways to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing as well as securing your items for transportation
The most important tip you need to remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a precise plan that you’ll have to stick to through the whole process. It is best to create an inventory of every item you need 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 its place of destination. Removal entails transporting a big amount of various items, among them a lot of little items that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will help you make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is tagging all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most common ways of labelling boxes is by the room name. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into boxes tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and blankets in the box tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be 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 in the transporting car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport fragile items. Wrap them in thick layers of fabric as well as bubble foil as well as tag them clearly (including a “This way up” label). You should also ensure that the transport provider is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile goods and which cardboards requires handling with caution.
When it comes to furniture, it’s crucial to empty them prior to the removal as well as ship everything that was inside individually. Any loose things inside closets or cabinets can harm your furniture during transportation. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they cannot open during shipment. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting car. Ahead of trying to move your furniture out of the apartment, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your building has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (find at least one person to help you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the only method to ship them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to have all the nails and bolts in one place like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture sufficiently. Disassembling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the shipping vehicle to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing smaller things, such as magazines, tableware, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the most efficient choice. It’s probable that you will need more box … es than you have – however there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you may get new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll most likely require quite a few cardboards, you can choose a more affordable method. Visit your local stores and ask if they have any boxes they no longer need. Stores usually possess a lot of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are willing to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing textiles as well as little items. There is a much higher possibility that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will be a sufficient choice for packing textiles, magazines as well as little items, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards and susceptible to tearing, if you decide to use them for transporting things with hard corners (for example books, cutlery and such). Moreover – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most difficult things to transport are houseplants. It’s obviously smartest to transport them personally, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider is aware of what he will be transporting. One day before the removal water the plants generously and let them sit. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to allow them to absorb what they can before putting the plants in a cardboard (you have to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the cardboard).
Selecting the best hauler
Obviously, besides properly securing your cargo for the time of transportation, it is equally important to select a suitable hauler. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration while selecting the right person? Cost of the service, certainly, is of importance, particularly on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever shipping all your belongings you should firstly take into consideration if your load will be safe when given to the hauler. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers every question you require an answer to before making your decision about a transport provider but also you can check out reviews left by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Nothing can be more reliable than reviews given by a person who’s already used the services of the transport provider you are considering.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is really difficult to estimate, as it varies considerably because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as how long the route is. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile items, the price is probable to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually more economical than transporting your items into another country.
