Packing & Shipping Small Equipment
Need to ship small equipment for your house or office? Hesitating between hiring an end-to-end mover or Do-It-Yourself? Here’s what you should take note of!
The size of your items
If your items comprise less than a truckload, but are too much or huge to fit in your car, then this is considered a small moving load. Common examples include:
- 2 or 3-seater sofas
- Medium-sized dressers
- Small to medium-sized boxes
- Washing machines
- Office desks
In Singapore, such items can utilise the help of DIY van hire services to be transported.
Benefits of On-Demand Van Hires
Van hire services, such as GetVan, offer several benefits. Firstly, van hire providers operate in a cost-efficient manner. By specially assisting you with small-load moves, service providers should ensure that you don’t overpay for services that you don’t fully utilise. Secondly, on-demand van hires give you the assurance and flexibility that your shipping needs are met as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Executing a DIY shipping
However, there are some pointers to note when shipping small-to-medium-size equipment. A successful move begins with early planning and packing. Packing should always commence days or even weeks before the actual date depending on the volume, so that you can get your equipment moved to the new location on schedule.
To pack all your equipment, you will need some packing supplies, namely:
- Cardboard boxes
- Bubble bags
- Duct tape
- Proper tools to disassemble furniture
- Moving sheets or blankets to pack and move equipment
Aside from that, you must also ensure that your boxes are properly labelled and organised. This is to help you with a smoother unpacking process.
