Changing apartment is among the most ordinary situations we can come across in our days. And despite the fact we change the place we live in at least a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most trying activities possible. Just figuring out the logistics of shipping everything you have from one place to another is quite a job and with packing, unpacking as well as selecting the best company to assist you with the move, it seems truly colossal as well as quite stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do to make the move as efficient as can be as well as considerably less stressful.
Packing as well as securing your belongings for shipment
The most important tip you should remember while preparing for the removal is that you need a coherent list of steps that you will abide by during the move. It is good to create an inventory of all the things you want to ship. It can not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to make sure that all of your things were successfully transported to your new home. Removal calls for shipping a great deal of stuff, including a big amount of little 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 your new home safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the boxes as precisely as you can. One of the most useful methods of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and devices go into boxes labelled ‘kitchen’, all the pillows as well as personal items in the cardboards tagged ‘bedroom’ and so on. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you start the unpacking. Don’t forget to label both sides and the top of the box, to make sure that you (as well as the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, no matter how they will be stacked in the transporting vehicle.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport delicate items. Wrap them in thick layers of textiles or bubble wrap as well as label them in an easily visible place (including a “This way up” sign). You should also make sure that the hauler knows that he’ll be transporting delicate cargo as well as which boxes have to be handled with care.
When you want to transport furniture, it’s imperative to empty them prior to the removal as well as ship everything that was inside separately. Any loose things inside closets and drawers could damage your furniture during transportation. It’s also smart to secure all the furniture doors as well as drawers using tape so that they won’t open during transportation. You may use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of putting the furniture inside the shipping car. Before 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 building has one). If so, you’ll be able to transport them without disassembling (find at least one person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the only method to transport them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – make sure you have all the pins as well as bolts gathered like in a Ziploc bag and that you’ve secured delicate elements of the furniture properly. Disassembling furniture is also smart when you need to use the shipping vehicle to the maximum, because disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
When securing smaller things, like books, kitchen appliances, cosmetics and much more, boxes will be … the most obvious choice. It’s very possible that you won’t have enough boxes to fit all your belongings – however there is a few ways to get some more. Firstly you can get new boxes in all home-improvement as well as construction stores. However as you’ll probably need lots of cardboards, you can decide upon a more affordable way. Go to your local stores and ask if they have some boxes they don’t need any more. Shops tend to possess a great amount of unneeded boxes and they are usually willing to share.
An alternative to boxes would be using bags, particularly for storing clothes and small stuff. There is a quite higher chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be an adequate alternative when packing clothes, magazines as well as small items, there are some downsides, though. Bags are much less durable than boxes and prone to tearing, if you decide to use them for transporting things with hard corners (for example books, cutlery etc.). Also – placing bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking cardboards in similar fashion.
One of the most tricky things to transport are houseplants. It’s always smartest to ship them individually, however if something prevents you from doing that, you need to be certain that the transport provider is aware of what he is going to transport. A day before the move water the plants thoroughly and let them sit. It’s important that the plants are watered enough to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them absorb what they can before placing them in a box (you need to pour off the excess water gathered on the saucer, so that it won’t accidentally leak through the container).
Selecting the best transport provider
Of course, besides properly securing your items for the time of transportation, it is equally crucial to find a suitable hauler. Which aspects of transportation should you acknowledge while making your decision? Price, certainly, is of importance, especially on lengthy, international routes, but it’s only one of the things to consider. Whenever transporting all your belongings you need to in the first place consider if your things will be properly protected when given to the hauler. Whenever listing your delivery on a transport marketplace, such as Clicktrans, you not only can ask possible transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but moreover you can check out reviews given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Nothing is more believable than reviews given by someone who’s already hired the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is really hard to estimate, because it changes, sometimes drastically because of how much the cargo weights and how big it is or the route length. If you are transporting a lot of fragile things, the cost is likely to be higher. The same goes for removals between countries – domestic routes are usually less pricey than moving your items into another country.
