You have to move away but you are concerned? Inspire yourself by our advices how to move reasonably and mainly without stress. To have everything under control.
Have a plan
Plan everything thoroughly about the moving in time. Plan every step of moving, whether it’s a room, a flat or an office, all you have to do is plan. And in advance you should also think of the removal service. Order them in good time to avoid of occupied term. Especially the last weekend before the end of the month isn‘t often free.
It has a reason. This is when the lease is over. Removal company will be available on request for a visit and give you an approximate cost of transportation. They will plan the necessary staff, a suitable truck, the number of ways and the order in which things will be taken. The informations about on which floor do you live, if the lift is available, size and capacity of the lift and also dimensions of staircase are really important. Because details often take decisions during the moving.
You shouldn’t forget about possibly permissions. For example, parking next to the entrance isn’t always matter of course. If the entrance is forbidden for trucks, it is necessary to arrange a permission from the city office. Before the transportation check the staircase. Although is‘s common space, the neighbors can store unnecessary things or have flowers to preserve, and so on. If you moving the whole apartment, you should also remind it of other tenants of the apartment or panel building. In order to avoid any misunderstandings.
Fortunately, thanks to us and our portal, you don‘t have to spend hours on the computer and look for the right company on the Internet. Just register on our website, fill in the order and wait. Then you just have to choose the right shipper or removal company and it is done. The difference between larger and renowned companies and smaller ones is mainly in the price. Their system is based on a specific amount for a flat that is different from the number of rooms depending on the area, square meters. This price doesn‘t include a shipping charge and a standing charge, as well as various surcharges, such as overpayments or staircases if there is no elevator in the house, heavy duty charges and daytime or holiday pay surcharges.
On the other hand, the advantega is, that they have wide fleet and they will send you a car of the right size. From some companies you can buy packiging material or they can even provide you for a charge a space if you don’t have enough. Disadvantage is more expensive transportation and harder estimate for the price, that you will pay.
To the smaller companies you will pay exact amount per hour, regardless of the floor, the possibility of lifts, removal and packaging. Amount of this price is dependent of the number of workers, it also includes standing cars, and in the first hour there is a shipment. Most companies charge after one hour every started half an hour or fifteen minutes. You will pay only for heavy loads or moving over long distances. Many smaller companies don‘t charge surcharges for free days and holidays. So the biggest advantage of this smaller companies is lower price and chance to count an approximate price.
Smaller disadvantage is, that they have limited fleet and during the moving a bigger appartment or house, it may happen that everything won‘t fit in the car at once.
Don’t forget about thorough packing, to avoid of possible damages. The strong paper boxes with holds on both sides are appropriate for packaging, and you will appreciate it when simply lifting and wearing. Moreover, they are made of high quality multi-layer board with reinforced walls and bottom. Covers from the shops are free, but they don’t have necessary capacity, so ensure the bottom of the box for example by taping, and be careful during the transport that the buttom is not opened or damaged.
Rope up more pieces
If you need to bring for example books, rope them up together before putting into the box. At least 5-7 books. Don‘t forget that book and documents have thier weight. Therefore is the best to choose smaller boxes. Not only you and shippers won‘t pick up one large box, but during the transportation can be damaged. Less is more. And this also apply on the moving. Transfering of more ligher boxes is more convenient than effort with one large. You should better take closable boxes, to not to damage things you are transporting during the ride.
Fragile things and texitles
Fragile things thoroughly pack into bubble foil before you put them into the box. If you don’t want to spend your money on it or you don’t have it at home, you can use newspaper as well. It isn’t economically demanding and it will safe glass and fragile things from scratches and possible damage very well.
If you are transporting textiles, use the plastic waste bags. Buy coarser bags and also be careful about overload. Very practical are plastic bags with vacuum suction, which you can use later to store seasonal clothing or feathers. Everything mark thoroughly. It is useful to number your boxes because you can quickly chceck, if something is missing.
Notify the staff of the shipping service by yourself about breakable things and heavy boxes.
Breakable electronics pack into the boxes. Refill and defrost the frigde. Be aware that it can’t be swich on immediately. As a result of transport, the cooling system may not function properly. Secure the washing machine with the screws to prevent damage.
Finally the last advice. Things of personal and everyday needs transport at the end to have them right by your hand after moving. If you think on such things ahead, you will avoid stress and you will move reasonably and without problems.
