Some Simple Rules For Moving and Cargo Transportation

Today transportation and cargo deliveries by the means of motor vehicles are the most optimal variants according to "price - time of transportation" ratio.

One of the key factors of the success in cargo transportation and moving is the compliance with several simple rules, which will help you avoid the troubles and the headache and will make cargo transportation or moving less problematic.

First of all the size of the packaging materials are of great importance, since an improper box may and most certainly will cause additional troubles: under the weight of its content and under certain moving circumstances the box will fall apart or brake. Never think you can save on packaging quality, since it is only a first glance impression while in reality the choice will lead to considerable losses.

For safe cargo fixing you should verify the pad presence: it will be especially useful for fragile commodities transportation.

You've decided to transport cargo. It might be joint cargo, dangerous cargo etc. If it is necessary to transport especially valuable cargo then it is better to use wear proof double-layer boxes.

You may close the box tight using a wrapping machine. However if you have no such machine, you may replace the cords with adhesive tape.

In order to not damage the content of a package when transporting liquids it is advisable to pack them in hermetic containers and seal them with polyethylene. Do not forget to separate them with inflexible sealing material. As to different greasy and redolent substances, it is advisable to wrap them in greaseproof materials and seal with adhesive tape.

Packing of small items should be made with particular care. As to gifts remember that gift wrapping is not good for transportation purposes. It is advisable to use pad between different discs and cassettes. Knifes, scissors and other cutting tools must be wrapped accurately, especially their pointed ends. Also insure that their unpacking during the transportation is excluded.

On transportation of not solid substances you should consider position of the arrow sign on the box.

Addresses should be indicated clearly and exactly in order to avoid misunderstandings during transportation and upon delivery. If the packages have to be repeatedly used, remove all labels and stickers. But do not use old, formless or misshapen boxes.

As for international transportation, taking into account that customs officers have the right to verify cargo, there is no point to pack cargo overmuch, complicating its opening. And remember that marks like "Caution" or "Fragile" will not replace firm and qualitative packaging.
