10 Effective Tips – To Keep In Mind- While Movers Are Moving Your Things

10 Effective Tips – To Keep In Mind- While Movers Are Moving Your Things

We are right in the middle of the crazy rush for moving season. Schools go back in 2 weeks, universities and tertiary education goes back in 4-5 weeks. There’s a lot of plates for you to keep spinning right about now – and even with the help of the best removalists Western Sydney or the Eastern Suburbs have to offer, here are 10 effective tips to keep in mind. 

1. Fail to plan, and plan to fail

I’ve said this a few times, but make sure to plan out everything you are going to do well in advance, otherwise you will feel like you’re chasing your tail for a while. 

2. Pack Boxes According to the rooms they will go in – not from

Trust me when I say this – not even in the best removalists Sydney can boast can read your mind. If you label a box “bedroom 2” but you want it to go to bedroom 3 in the new place because you’re up-sizing, don’t be surprised if they bring it to the wrong room!

3. Get packing materials ahead of time

It might seem like elongating a move, but the sooner you start packing, the more seamless moving day is likely to be. 

4. If moving with kids or pets, make sure someone can babysit

It’s always a good idea to keep your kids away from the action on moving day for a number of reasons – whether it’s ensuring that they are in school, or with a family member who can look after them for the day. But you might not know that one of the basic house moving principles is to also keep your pets away too. 

5. Have some of your items prepped and ready on moving day

You can help the efficiency of moving day by doing things like pre-switching off fridges, draining out washing machines, and taking the feet off sofas or deconstruction bed frames. This helps greatly in terms of fitting things properly on the truck, or even through the front door in the first place. 

6. Use spare time to tick other tasks off your list

If you have arrived at the new place ahead of time and find yourself waiting, why not use the time to get your address changed for bills, utilities and banks etc, or by cancelling direct debits or disconnecting your service from your last address. 

7. Don’t break traffic laws!

This may seem obvious to most, but there might be some who need reminding: it’s not worth speeding, or going through that red light, or recklessly speeding around that roundabout. I know it can feel like there’s too much to do and not enough time in the day, or by the time you’re done going back and forth for the 3rd time you get tired, but don’t! 

8. Remember to take the time to eat and rehydrate

It’s another one that you would think should go without saying, but seriously, I’ve seen this too many times. Make sure to refuel yourself. There’s a lot of stress, a lot of activity and movement and you need to make sure to drink plenty of water, and get your caloric intake. 

9. Make sure to keep talking to your movers about where things should go

As I mentioned earlier, most removalists aren’t psychic. It may seem obvious to you that your piano should go in the dining room, but they may not know this unless you tell them! 

10. Remind yourself on why you moved!

It can be very easy to get overwhelmed or succumb to stress on moving day. Use the quieter moments of the day (wherever you can get them) to remind yourself of the future and why you’re moving! 

With these in mind, enjoy your move this crazy season!

Meet The Author - Bill Chen

Before 2008, Bill was working with a local removalist company in Sydney and was witness for a number of deformities and wrongs in the working of the company. Observing the atmosphere, a thought came to Bill’s mind that he could do much better if he were the owner of the company, by offering a fully transparent service to the clients with a friendly and trustworthy staff and no hidden fee structure; and thus, in 2008, AAA Bill Removalists Sydney was formed with just one truck and only Bill as staff. Even if Bill Chen began the company as just one man, the company grew fast. The operation expanded beyond the Sydney suburbs and to the surrounding cities: Wollongong, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other.
