Important Tips For Transporting Your Stuff
So, here are a few recommendations that you should stick to when transporting your stuff with a moving company.
1. The choice of the transport company
This point you have already successfully passed. All that remains is to conclude a contract with a transportation company.
It is understandable that when you move you want to save some money. However, do not immediately prefer the cheapest offer on the market.
2. Consider the option of insuring the cargo
The unexpected can also happen through no fault of the moving company. If your shipment contains valuable or expensive items, it is advisable to take out additional insurance.
3. Consider the number of boxes or other packaging
Scotch tape, polyethylene with “bubble wrap”, cardboard sheets, colored markers, stickers, and large-capacity garbage bags will definitely come in handy. Pay attention to the capacity of the boxes. To transport clothing out of the cabinet right on racks, you might use specific transport boxes of cardboard that include holes for hooks right inside.
4. Planning ahead
It is worth starting to assemble things in advance, at least 4 days before the expected date of transportation. Originally, though, you must place objects that you won’t be needed at once. For example, photo albums, spare towels and linens, books, and photos in frames. Put the basic items in separate containers and label them as last to be downloaded and first to be pulled out.
Various expensive items such as documents, appliances, jewelry, cash, etc. always wrap up them at the very last minute and take with you instead of in the shipping compartment. Other items can be organized and stacked in any sequence. Some of the separation guidelines include: by living room (bedroom, nursery, playroom, living room, kitchen, study) as well as by use (things and items for sports, laundry and cleaning products, cookware and utensils for preparing meals, etc.).
5. Protect cargo from rain
Even if the boxes get wet, you need to make sure the contents stay dry. This is easy to do as follows: first, we put an open garbage bag in the box and spread it out, and then we put the things and fix the bag.
6. Preparing the furniture
If you have large items that you will transport, first disassemble them into smaller pieces. This is necessary in order to smoothly remove the furniture from one home and bring it into another. If necessary, you can call a furniture assembler/disassembler. Do not disassemble bulky furniture, so as not to spoil it.
If you plan to disassemble the furniture yourself, then make yourself an algorithm that will help when assembling the furniture. Put the fittings in a container or sturdy bag, and then wrap it with cling film and tape. You can use sheets of cardboard or the same film to pack the furniture pieces. Pay special attention to the corners of the furniture.
