How to transport things easily, quickly and without losses?We have collected for you the most important and relevant tips for collecting things and transporting them Autumn is not only the "velvet season" and the beginning of the school year, but also the most popular time of the year for moving. How to organize this process so that all things reach the new address safe and sound - today in our article. Packaging A few days before the move, conduct an audit in the apartment to see if you have enough bags and boxes to pack all your belongings. Boxes and bags should not be too large, their optimal weight with things is up to 20 kg, so it is more convenient to carry them. Stock up on bubble wrap, newspapers, and plastic (such useful things are often left behind). If you don't have a lot of boxes of a suitable size, go to the nearest store, or even better to the pharmacy. There they will be happy to give them to you! Boxes should not be packed. They deform, become unstable when loaded, and can break. In addition, two heavy boxes are much harder and harder to carry than four small ones. When folding things, do not forget to sign the boxes, and then seal them with tape. In general, you will spend at most an hour on this. But when unpacking things, save a lot of time by not opening all the boxes in a row in search of a book or blanket. Fold fragile items and dishes by placing newspapers or a soft cloth between them. Towels, pot holders and sheets will be used here. The rest of the items can not be packed in boxes, but put in shopping bags. If there are not enough bags, take large trash bags, seal them (by nesting 2-3 bags inside each other) and pack the remaining things there. This option is good for transporting bulky outerwear, pillows and blankets. can be transported together with hangers, this will save time when disassembling. Just pack all your belongings right on the hangers into a bag and tighten the laces. Oversized furniture Cabinet furniture (andin general, everything that can be disassembled) disassemble into separate panels, fold in a pile and wrap with cling film. Only then wrap them with tape so as not to damage them during transportation. The most bulky thing should be the mattress. It can be wrapped with foil, and then with scotch tape or on both sides, put sheets on it with an elastic band. Washing them will be much easier than cleaning the mattress later. Household Appliances Small toasters, microwaves, steamers, multicooker, TVs and monitors shouldn't be a problem. The ideal option would be to transport such equipment in the original box. But if these things have served you faithfully for many years and the original boxes have not survived, pack the equipment (especially for monitors and TVs) in a soft cloth, then wrap it in plastic and wrap it with tape. Pick a box that is close to the size and pack the equipment there, filling the empty space with bubble wrap (or crumpled newspaper). Large household appliances Everything is much more complicatedthe case with refrigerators and freezers. The washing machine must be prepared in advance. Unplug it and let it dry so that water from the filters does not get onto the boxes during loading. Secure the motor and drum to help the washing machine safely navigate through bumps and speed bumps. Transporting the refrigerator also requires preparation. Unplug it in advance and defrost it, pack food separately so that the refrigerator does not have to be taken out with them. We do exactly the opposite with the freezer. You need to turn it off and take it out right before loading. It is not necessary to take out and eat food in advance, since modern freezers maintain the required temperature for several hours without electricity. Usually this time is enough for the move. Remember that refrigerators and freezers can only be transported while standing. You may notice that the movers, unfortunately, do not handle your equipment very carefully. Therefore, before taking out the freezer (or other large-sized equipment), wrap it with transparent film, and after loading, pack it in the original packaging or wrap it with a blanket and blanket and fix it in the car body. After transportation, the refrigerator and freezer must "rest" for several hours before turning on. Especially if they were tilted more than 40 degrees during transportation. Flowers Indoor plants need close to eachput a friend in boxes with high sides. If there are not many flowers, it is better to distribute to household members one at a time and carry them in your hands, it’s safer! Palm trees and other large indoor plants will have to be transported in the back anyway. Calculate a place so that boxes do not fall on them as you move. Just in case, the plant needs to be tied up so that it does not break. Transportation A few tips for choosingtransport company for the move. Make sure that the company you choose can provide a car with a body of the correct height (considering the height of the refrigerator, mattress, etc.) and equipment for vertical lifting of the refrigerator and freezer. It is better to overpay here than to spend money on repairing these things later. In addition, some companies offer discounts on overnight transportation.
