What is devanning?

Packing can be a difficult task. When you’re moving from one place to another, you’re usually overwhelmed with confusion, excitement, or a mixture of both. You’re unsure about what to pack and what to leave behind, but you’re still pretty psyched about the big move coming up. It’s going to be a big change but a good one nevertheless. After you’ve packed up all you can and moved all your personal belongings to your new place, the headache moves from the stress of packing to the stress of unpacking. Usually a more difficult task than simply packing up your things.

While you’re packing, you know where all your things are and all you’ll have to do is put them in containers and maybe label them for ease. While unpacking, you’ll have to show more caution and care than that. You have to decide where to put all your belongings so that they make an aesthetically pleasing picture. You have to decide the outlook and interiors of your new home. You’re starting afresh and besides, the layout of your new place would be a completely new one so you can’t just put everything back the way it used to be at your old place. A lot of thinking goes into unpacking and devanning your personal belongings.

Not only do all your things need to be handled with the utmost care, but you’ll also need to put a lot of thought into where you’re going to place them once you’ve taken them out of the van.

The standard definition for devanning says that it’s simply unloading products or packages from a container. After the container lands, it is unsealed, and its contents are all taken out. However, devanning could mean so much more than its simplified standard definition.  

Devanning services can help you unload shipping containers, unpack the containers with your personal belongings, and even help you unpack at times. Half of your job is already easier once everything has made it out of those boxes. Devanning services can help you with that. Moving companies and movers usually also provide a devanning service. If you’re interested or would like to know more, contact your movers to find out whether they also do devanning.

Advantages of opting for a devanning service:

Devanning saves you a lot of time. While your movers are devanning your items, you can go about your day and get busy with something more important. The best part is, they all know what they’re doing. They’re experienced and trained to unpack all your items quickly and efficiently. They are thorough and accurate so you won’t have to worry about your belongings going missing or getting lost in the mix of it all.

You can rely on devanning service providers. The crew responsible for devanning all your containers or unpacking all your things are professionals who are trained in the field. They are thorough, pay attention to detail, and almost never make mistakes. Usually, devanning companies are certified in handling all kinds of goods like glassware, furniture, electrical goods, consumer goods, and more.

Opting to go with a devanning service will also save you a lot of money. It’s truly cost-efficient, and you won’t regret your decision. The crew will have the satisfaction of having done their job accurately and you will have the satisfaction of getting unbeatable value for the money you spent. Most devanning jobs come with a fixed price, so ask around and get quotes from a number of companies before you pick one. Weigh the pros and cons of each company carefully and pick one that’s best suited to your needs personally.

How to pick the right devanning team

  1. Do a lot of research.

Know your devanning teams. Look into the pros and cons of each company, look for qualified employees, an experienced crew, and professional, high-class equipment for the actual devanning process. Maybe even get testimonies from previous clients if you want to be extra sure.

  1. Ask a lot of questions.

For your peace of mind, it’s better for you to be on-site while the team is doing all the devanning. Not only will it ease your worries to a degree, but it will also give you a sense of what the devanning and unpacking process is like for future references. So ask if you’re allowed to be present while the crew is doing their thing.

Devanning doesn’t have to be all that difficult to navigate. It isn’t a complicated concept. All the movers are doing, is helping you with something you’d rather not do yourself. They have professionals to do the job more efficiently and accurately than you ever could, and just for a small, affordable fee. You can relax and do other, more important tasks, while this part of your moving is taken care of.
