Moving to a new apartment 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 in our lifetime, removals are still some of the most trying situations that can happen to us. Just working out the logistics of moving everything you have between houses is quite a job and when you add packing, unpacking and choosing the best hauler to assist you with removal, it seems really colossal as well as quite stressful. Thankfully there are a few ways to make the move as simple as possible as well as significantly less stressful.
Packing and securing your items for the time of the removal
One crucial tip you need to remember while packing is that you need a precise plan that you will abide by through the whole process. It is best to create a list of every item you need to transport. Such a list will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal calls for transporting a great deal of various items, including a lot of small things that can be easily misplaced under the pressure of time – a list will ensure that you will remember to make sure they all made it to the place of destination safely. Another crucial step is tagging all the cardboards as precisely as you are able to. One of the more useful methods of tagging 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 cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll see how time-saving tagging can be once you start the unpacking. Remember to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) can be sure which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be placed in the transporting vehicle.
Take special care when preparing to transport fragile things. Wrap them in protective layers of fabric and bubble foil and tag them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to ensure that the transport provider knows that he’ll be transporting fragile cargo and which boxes requires handling with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them prior to the removal as well as ship everything that was inside individually. Any unattached items inside closets and drawers can damage your furniture during shipment. Additionally it is good to close all the furniture doors as well as drawers with some tape to make sure they cannot open during transportation. You may use ordinary Scotch tape for that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture inside the shipping car. Ahead of attempting to move your furniture out of the house, make sure that they will fit via front doors, stairways and into the elevator (if your old apartment has one). If so, you can transport them without disassembling (find at least one person to help you!). If they cannot, dismantling them is the sole way to ship them without harm. Be cautious with that – be sure to have all the pins and bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured all the elements of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea when you want to fill the transporting car to the maximum, because dismantled furniture will take a lot less place.
When packing minor things, such as books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and so on, cardboards will be the most obvious choice. It’s most likely that you will need more boxes than you have – but … there is a few ways to get additional boxes. For example you can acquire new cardboards in most of the home-improvement as well as construction stores. But as you’ll most likely require quite a few cardboards, you can decide upon a more affordable method. Try visiting your local shops and see if they have some cardboards they no longer need. Shops usually possess a great amount of unnecessary boxes and they are usually willing to give them away.
An alternative to boxes will be using bags, particularly for transporting textiles as well as little items. There is a quite bigger possibility that you will find the bags at home. As mentioned, bags will serve as an adequate alternative for packing clothes, magazines as well as small things, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as susceptible to breaking, if you choose to use them for shipping things with hard corners (like books, cutlery etc.). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much harder than stacking boxes the same way.
One of the most difficult loads to transport are houseplants. It is usually best to transport them by yourself, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider knows what he will be shipping. A day before the removal water the plants thoroughly and allow the water to sink in. It’s crucial that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but also to allow them to take in what they can before placing the plants in a box (you have to pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Selecting the right hauler
Of course, besides properly securing your load for the shipment, it is equally crucial to select a suitable transport provider. What aspects of transportation must you take into consideration when making your decision? Price, certainly, is of importance, especially on longer, routes between countries, but it’s just 1 factor. When transporting all your belongings you need to in the first place take into consideration if your things will be properly protected in the hands of the transport provider. When listing your delivery on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask possible transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before making your decision about a hauler but also you can read feedback left by previous customers on each transport provider’s profile page. Nothing can be more believable than feedback given by someone who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
Prices of removal
Price of removal is pretty difficult to asses, as it changes, sometimes drastically due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo or how long the route is. If you are transporting many delicate things, the cost is likely to be higher. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are frequently less pricey than shipping your things into another country.
