Moving to a new house is one of the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And even though we change the place we live in at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still among the most stressful happenings that can happen to us. Just figuring out the organization of moving all your belongings between houses is a very large job and with packing, unpacking as well as selecting the suitable transport provider to help you with the move, it seems really colossal and very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as simple as can be and significantly less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
The most important thing you need to remember while packing is that you need a precise plan that you will abide by during the move. It is best to make a list of every item you need to transport. It will not only help you pack but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were safely shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a great deal of various items, among them a lot of small things that are easily forgettable when packed in a hurry – a list will ensure that you will remember to check if they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the most common methods of tagging boxes is by the room name. For example all the kitchen supplies as well as appliances should be placed into cardboards labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows 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. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the hauler) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked inside the shipping vehicle.
Be extra careful with delicate goods. Enclose them in protective layers of textiles and bubble foil and label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be shipping fragile goods as well as which cardboards have to be handled with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s imperative to take everything out of them prior to the removal as well as ship everything that was inside separately. Any loose items inside closets and drawers could damage your furniture during transportation. It’s also good to close all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they won’t open during transportation. You may use regular Scotch tape to do that. Another issue is the matter of loading the furniture inside the transporting vehicle. Before attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, make sure that they will fit through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you can move them without disassembling (make sure that you have at least 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole method to move them safely. Be careful with that – make sure you have all the nails as well as bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also smart whenever you need to use the transporting vehicle to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When securing minor items, like magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., boxes will be t … he most efficient choice. It’s probable that you will need more boxes than you have – however there is a few ways to acquire some more. Firstly you may get new boxes in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll probably require lots of cardboards, you can decide upon a more affordable way. Go to nearby stores and see if they have some boxes they no longer need. Shops usually have a lot of unnecessary boxes and most of the time they are happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes will be using bags, particularly for storing clothes as well as little stuff. There is a quite bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As stated above, bags will serve as a sufficient choice for storing textiles, magazines and little items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much more flimsy than cardboards and susceptible to tearing, if you choose to use them for transporting items with edges (for example books, cutlery and such). Moreover – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most difficult items to transport are houseplants. It is always best to transport them individually, but if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the hauler is aware of what he is going to ship. One day prior to the move water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to endure the transportation, but also to let them absorb what they can prior to putting the plants in a cardboard (you need to get rid of the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the container).
Searching for the right hauler
Obviously, apart from suitably securing your load for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to select a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation should you consider when making your decision? Price, obviously, is of importance, especially on longer, international routes, however it’s just 1 factor. When transporting all your belongings you need to firstly consider if your cargo will be properly protected in the hands of the hauler. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible transport providers every question you require an answer to before deciding upon a transport provider but moreover you may check out feedback given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much can be more reliable than feedback left by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is really hard to estimate, as it changes, sometimes drastically because of the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as the route length. If you plan to ship many delicate things, the price is likely to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually less pricey than moving your load into another country.
