Moving to a new house is among the most common happenings we can encounter in our life. And despite the fact we move averagely a few times before settling for good, removals are still some of the most stressful activities possible. Just figuring out the organization of moving everything you have between houses is a very large job and with securing your belongings for transportation, unpacking as well as selecting the right transport provider to help you with the move, it seems truly huge and very stressful. Fortunately there are couple of things you can do 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 have to remember while preparing for the removal is that you should create a precise plan that you will abide by during the move. It is best to create an inventory of every item you want to ship. It will not only make the packing easier but additionally will allow you to check if all of your things were successfully shipped to your new home. Removal entails transporting a big amount of stuff, among them a lot of small items that are easily forgettable under the pressure of time – a list will help you make sure they all arrived to the place of destination safely. The next crucial step is labelling all the cardboards as clearly as you can. One of the more helpful ways of tagging cardboards is by category. So all the kitchen accessories and appliances should be placed into cardboards tagged ‘kitchen’, all the duvets as well as personal items in the box labelled ‘bedroom’ etc. You’ll be surprised how much time labelling can save once you get to the unpacking part. Don’t forget to tag both sides and the top of the box, so that you (and the transport provider) will be able to recognize which cardboard goes where, regardless of how they will be stacked in the transporting car.
Be extra careful when preparing to transport fragile goods. Enclose them in thick layers of fabric and bubble foil as well as tag them clearly (including a “This way up” sign). You also need to make sure that the hauler is aware that he’ll be transporting fragile goods as well as which boxes have to be handled with caution.
When you are shipping furniture, it’s important to take everything out of them before the removal and transport all the things inside separately. Any unattached things inside cupboards and drawers could damage your furniture on the road. Additionally it is smart to secure all the furniture doors and drawers with some tape to make sure they won’t open during shipment. You can use ordinary Scotch tape to do that. There is also a matter of loading the furniture into the transporting car. Ahead of trying to move your furniture from the apartment, make sure that you’ll be able to transport them through the front doors, stairways or into the elevator (if your building has one). If they do, you’ll be able to transport them without dismantling (be sure to have at least 1 person to assist you!). If they can’t, dismantling them is the sole way to ship them without harm. Be careful with dismantling – be sure to have all the pins as well as screws in one place like in a Ziploc bag as well as that you’ve secured all the parts of the furniture properly. Dismantling furniture is also a good idea whenever you need to fill the transporting car to the maximum, as disassembled furniture will take a lot less place.
Whenever packing minor items, like magazines, kitchen appliances, cosmetics etc., cardboards will be … the most efficient choice. It’s very possible that you will need more boxes than you have – but there is a few ways to acquire additional boxes. For example you may buy new cardboards in most of the home-improvement or construction stores. But since you’ll probably need lots of cardboards, you may choose a more affordable method. Try visiting nearby shops and ask if they have any boxes they no longer need. Shops usually possess a great amount of unnecessary boxes and they are usually happy to share.
Another options, instead of boxes would be using bags, especially for transporting clothes and little items. There is a quite bigger chance that you have some bags already at home. As mentioned, bags will be a sufficient choice when storing textiles, magazines and little things, but unfortunately they have a couple of disadvantages. Bags are much less durable than cardboards as well as prone to tearing, should you decide to use them for storing things with hard corners (like books, cutlery and so on). Also – stacking bags on top of each other is much more difficult than stacking boxes in similar fashion.
One of the most tricky loads to ship are houseplants. It’s obviously best to transport them individually, but if for some reason you cannot do that, make sure that the hauler knows what he is going to transport. One day before the shipment water the plants generously and give them a moment. It’s crucial that the plants have enough water to suffer through the transportation, but it’s equally important to let them absorb what they can before putting them in a box (you have to pour off the extra water gathered on the saucer, to make sure it won’t soak through the cardboard).
Choosing the right hauler
Obviously, aside from suitably securing your load for the removal, it is also important to find a suitable hauler. What factors should you acknowledge when selecting the right person? Cost of the service, obviously, is important, especially on longer, routes between countries, but that’s just one of the things to consider. Whenever transporting everything you have you have to in the first place think if your load will be properly protected when given to the hauler. When posting your listing on a shipping marketplace, like Clicktrans, you not only may ask prospective transport providers all the questions you require an answer to before deciding upon a hauler but also you can check out feedback given by former customers on every hauler’s profile page. Not much is more reliable than reviews left by a person who’s already used the services of the hauler you are thinking of hiring.
The cost of removal
The cost of removal is really hard to estimate, because it varies considerably due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo as well as the route length. If your removal consist of a lot of fragile items, the cost is likely to go up. It’s similar for removals between countries – routes within one country are usually cheaper than shipping your items into another country.
