Moving Tips

Stay organised - of course there will be unexpected issues on moving day but for the most part you can have a comfortable move by packing and organising your possessions in advance.

Gather packing supplies in advance

Label all boxes clearly

Have extra cash on hand

Plan for your first night in your new home

MOVING home is hardly on my top 10 list of things to do. It is hard work and research says right up there with death and divorce in terms of the stress generated. Planning and preparation as well as key professionals are necessary to ensure things go as smoothly as possible.

Professional help

Your home is full of prized possessions be it sentimental or material value. The last thing you want is to get to your new residence and find that furniture has been damaged or that precious box of crystal glassware dropped.

Professional movers are the best way to ensure your belongings arrive at their destination intact. They have the muscle, equipment, expertise and experience to ensure the greatest care is taken. If something does happen they are usually insured to cover damages.

Be sure to tell them which pieces are especially valuable. Items like pianos may require specialist removalists.

Professional removalists can also provide packing material, actually pack and unpack your home and provide storage if needed.

You can book movers for the duration of the move (like Grace Removals Group at 131442, All Purpose Removals and Storage at 1300139 595 and Affordable Home and Office Removals at 5491 1078) or by the hour with the number of removalists you would like (try Citymove at 1300 970 540 or Location to Location Removalists at 1300 362 403).
