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.
Got the job done even tho Ruslan had to hire a van as his was on for repair.
Moving to a new house is among the most ordinary situations we can come across in our life. And even though we change the place we live in averagely a few times in our lifetime, removals are still among the most nerve-wracking situations that can happen to us. Just figuring out the logistics of transporting everything you have from one place to another is quite a task and with packing, unpacking and selecting the best transport provider to assist you with removal, it seems truly colossal and very stressful. Luckily there are a few ways to make the move as simple as can be and considerably less nerve-wracking.
Packing and securing your belongings for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will stick to through the whole process. It is smart to create a list of every item you want transported. Such a list will not only make the packing easier but also will allow you to check if all your belongings were safely transported to its place of destination. Removal entails shipping a great deal of various items, among them a lot of little things that can be easily misplaced when packed in a hurry – an inventory will help you make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as clearly as you are able to. One of the more helpful methods of labelling boxes is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the pillows and personal items in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how time-saving tagging can be once you get to the unpacking part. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (and the hauler) will be able to recognize which box goes where, no matter how they will be stacked in the transporting car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport fragile items. Enclose them in protective layers of fabric or bubble foil as well as tag them in an easily visible place (together with a “This way up” label). You also need to ensure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile cargo and which cardboards requires handling with care.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal as well as transport everything that was inside separately. Any loose things in closets or drawers can damage your furniture during transportation. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape for that. Another issue is the matter of putting the furniture into the shipping car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the apartment, be certain that they will fit via front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to move them without dismantling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, disassembling them is the sole way to transport them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you store all the nails and bolts in one place for example in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate parts of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also convenient when you want to use the shipping car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will be much easier to stack efficiently.
When packing smaller things, like magazines, tableware, decorations and much more, boxes will be the most … obvious choice. It’s almost certain that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – however there is a few methods to acquire some more. Firstly you may buy new cardboards in most of the home-improvement and construction stores. But as you’ll most likely need lots of cardboards, you can decide upon a more economical way. Visit your local shops and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops tend to have a lot of needless cardboards and they are usually willing to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing clothes as well as small items. There is a much bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As stated above, bags will serve as an adequate choice for packing clothes, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes as well as prone to breaking, if you decide to use them for transporting items with hard corners (like books, stationery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most tricky loads to transport are houseplants. It is usually best to transport them by yourself, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. One day prior to the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to endure the transportation, but also to allow them to absorb what they can prior to placing them in a cardboard (you have to pour off the extra water from the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the box).
Choosing the best hauler
Obviously, besides suitably securing your cargo for the removal, it is also important to find a suitable transport provider. Which aspects of transportation must you acknowledge while making your decision? Cost of the service, of course, is important, particularly on lengthy, routes between countries, however it’s just one of the things to consider. When transporting everything you have you should in the first place consider if your load will be properly protected when given to the hauler. When posting your listing on a transport marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective haulers all the questions you require an answer to before making your decision about a transport provider but moreover you may check out reviews left by previous customers on each hauler’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than feedback left by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to asses, as it varies considerably due to how much the cargo weights and how big it is as well as the route length. If your removal consist of many delicate things, the price is probable to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are frequently more economical than transporting your items into another country.
