It does not matter which state you are moving to and which state you are leaving, the moving process is similar. It is essentially just the distance that is the qualifying criteria between the different interstate moves. As usual, planning is the most critical part of the removals process. The better your plan, the more successful your move.

Moving house plants interstate

However, there is one caveat that you need to take into account when you are planning your move. It is not a simple matter to pack and move your house plants as it is for the rest of your household goods. According to the InterstateQuarantine.org.au website, “there are restrictions on what you can take as you cross state and quarantine borders within Australia.

In other words, let’s assume you are moving interstate from Sydney to Melbourne, you need to check the quarantine guidelines before deciding which plants to take and which plants to leave behind. This can be a challenging path to navigate; therefore, here are a couple of tips to help you add your plants and flowers to the move.

Obtain the necessary clearance certificates

It is not possible to transport all plants across state lines because of the risk of introducing pests, weeds, and diseases from one region to another. Essentially, Australia has different ecologically sensitive zones that can be destroyed by the introduction of alien plants, diseases, and pests.

Therefore, to transport plants across the state line, you first need to check the quarantine guidelines to see what you can and can’t carry across the state or territory line. Secondly, there will be plants that need a plant health certificate before you can take them into a new area. This certificate will certify that the plant is free of pests, weeds, and diseases. This needs to be completed before you move, so it’s important to add it to your moving to-do list.

Consult your removals company

Quality removalists Sydney to Melbourne will be able to guide you on what plants you can take with you and what you have to leave behind. They will also advise you whether your house plants and flowers are on their do-not-ship list, as they are for most removal companies; however, this does not mean you can’t ship your plants to your new destination. It is possible to move them successfully by taking extra care of them.

Packing your plants

It’s important to prepare your plants for moving a couple of weeks before you move. The plants that are in the ground need to be potted, while the plants that are in clay pots need to be re-potted in sterile soil in plastic pots. It’s a good idea to do this fairly early to ensure that the plant adjusts to its new container.

It is also a good idea to source boxes that the pots will fit in securely. Additionally, add bubble wrap, newspaper, or packing paper to each box between the pot and the sides of the box. This will ensure that the pot won’t move during transit.

In summary, the most important part of a move is to ensure that you ensure that you have cheap Interstate Removalists from Bill Removalists Sydney to help you plan and execute your move of all your household goods, including your plants successfully.

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

Unfortunately, packing up and moving your home or office to a new city or state is going to become a reality at one or other stage of your life. It doesn’t matter whether you want to move or not, or even whether you like moving or not, the fact of the matter is that a relocation is on the cards.
office removals Sydney

Preparing for a long-distance relocation

Once you have come to terms with the fact that a long-distance move is imminent, the next step is to determine what possessions you are going to ship and what you are going to sell, dump, or give away.

Even though relocating can be stressful and time-consuming, there are advantages to moving. Simply stated, it is a good time to sort through your household goods as well as your possessions to throw out old, broken, and unused items, especially kitchen appliances, and office items such as computers, printers, laptops, mobile devices, as well as their associated peripheral devices. The reason for this clear-out is that relocating costs money; ergo, the less there is to move, the less it will cost.

Once you have sorted out what you are going to take with, the next step is to make a list of your delicate household and office goods as the removalists need to pay particular attention to these items to ensure that they do not break during the move.

Packing up fragile items

Are you going to pack up your home or office? If so, here is a list of tips for packing delicate furniture:

Source the original boxes and packing materials

When you purchase items such as computer equipment, television sets, and other fragile items, it is a good idea to keep the original packaging that the item arrived in.

Ergo, when you move, you can just repack the item securely in its original packaging, and it will be protected on the long journey. If you have disposed of the original packaging, source packing materials that are similar to the initial wrappings and securely pack the item into the new box

Purchase bubble wrap, shrink wrap, and felted blankets

There will be furniture items that are too big to be securely wrapped and packed in a box. Therefore, wrap these items in a combination of bubble wrap, felted blankets, and industrial shrink wrap.

Consequently, when the movers pack your possessions in the removals truck, the items won’t get scratched or damaged as they won’t be able to rub against one another.

Kitchen appliances, crockery, and glasses

Before you pack multiple plates, drinking glasses, and dishes into one box, make sure that you securely wrap each item in newspaper, packing paper, or bubble wrap. The next step is to pack these items together in a box.

In order to prevent these objects from breaking in transit, it’s important to make sure that there is enough padding between each item.

Furthermore, it is a good idea to pack similar items together in a box so that they fit securely without being able to bump into each other during the move.

Final words

Even though you might need to organise most of the move yourself, it is a good idea to contact the removalists in Wollongong. Apart from relocation your possessions to your new office, they will offer you sage advice to make your moving experience simpler and easier to manage.

People around the world were moving from one place to another. No one was staying.”- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

cheap and professional Interstate removalists

Are you moving to a new home or office? If so, do you need to move your household or office contents from your old location to your new location? It is a fact of life that people have to relocate to new environments; albeit it a new home or office. Therefore, the question that begs is where do you find cheap and professional Interstate removalists to help you plan and execute a successful move?

 The cost of moving

There is no doubt that moving to new home costs a lot of money, and takes up an enormous amount of time and effort. According to a guide published by the Home Purchase Advisory Service of Australia, the average cost of a move will average out to between $550 and $3500.  Needless to say, these figures depend largely on the distance you are moving, what you are moving, and whether you pack and move yourself or hire professional removalists.

Therefore, it makes sense to look at ways to save money while moving your house. Ergo, here are four ways to cut costs when relocating to your home or office.

Prepare a detailed budget

It is very easy for scope creep or the ease with which moving costs increase as you pay for items that were not added to your original budget. Therefore, to make sure that you keep on top of your moving costs, make sure that you create as detailed a budget as possible. This budget will help you keep track of your costs as well as ensure that you don’t overspend on unnecessary items.

Hire packing boxes and pack yourself

You can cut down on your moving costs by hiring packing boxes instead of buying brand new boxes. Furthermore, you can pack your belongings instead of contracting your removalists to pack for you. On the other hand, should you have fragile possessions or antiques that need to be professionally wrapped and packed, you can ask your removalists to

Cut down on the number of movers that you hire

If you have a number of friends who can help you load your possessions into the truck, you can cut down on the number of movers to come out to help you load and unload your possessions.

save money while moving your house

Cut down on the household or office possessions that you move

It’s important to sort through all of your household or office items before you move. You will be amazed at how much you can rehome or throw away. In essence, every object that you move will cost money. Furthermore, to ensure that your move costs as little as possible, only pack the goods that will fit into your new home or that will cost you less to move than to purchase a new one.

Final words

Relocating to a new home or office can be time-consuming, energy-sapping, as well as expensive. However, as Jonathan Safran Foer notes in the quotation mentioned at the beginning of this article, people are moving all of the time. Even though it is not a comfortable experience, moving is sometimes necessary.

Are you moving your business to a new commercial space in another state, or even locally? If so, do you need help moving, or do you have everything under control? It’s important to remember that moving is a stressful time for everyone involved. Furthermore, it is not a sign of weakness to admit that you need some help and advice planning and executing your move. We believe that it takes courage to ask for help.

Checklist and moving tips

To help you plan your move, we have put together the following concise, yet simple relocation checklist:

  • Decide on your moving date

The first task is to decide when you will move your business to your new office space; otherwise, you won’t be able to plan a successful move. It is critical that you move when it will have the least impact on your business operations. For example, it is a good idea to move over a weekend so that you can be up and running without adversely impacting your customers. You can also consider staggering your move; ergo, move half of your business while the other half continues to operate.

  • Sort and clean-up

It goes without saying that the less you move, the easier and more cost-effective your move will be. On the other hand, it is not a good idea to throw out office supplies and machinery that you will need in the future. Therefore, sort through all of your office equipment and determine what you need and what can be donated to charitable organisations.

  • Use up sundry office supplies

If you have office stationery such as printer paper that can be used up before you move, it will simplify your move if you use up your existing stock before your moving date; ergo, you will have less to pack and move. You can always place a stationery order for delivery to your new premises.

  • Investigate removal companies

It is important decide which interstate removalists you are going to contract to move your possessions. In order to partner with the removals company that will conduct your move speedily and efficiently, it is a good idea to have a look at what the different companies offer before you make a final decision.

  • Order packing supplies

Are you going to pack up your office and factory yourself. If so, you need to order enough packing materials such as boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and cling film. When you are ordering packing boxes, it is essential that you include different sizes as well as specialist boxes in your order.

  • Measure your new commercial space

Measure the floor space of your new office and workshop, or ask your new landlord for a floor plan of the commercial space you have rented from him. In this way you will be able to plan where your furniture, machinery and equipment needs to go before you move.

  • Pack up your office in anticipation of the move

It is a good idea to pack up unused but necessary supplies and equipment ahead of your moving date; however, you will need to pack up the majority of your machinery, furniture and equipment just before you move. This includes breaking down and loading your machinery into shipping containers.

Working from home can be considered a dream come true; however, what will you do when your business has outgrown your home office?

Entrepreneurs are held in high-esteem by the global workforce. Amongst other things, they are known for their groundbreaking business strategies and for their problem-solving skills. However, when they have outgrown their current office space, they will need help packing up their home office and moving to a commercial space.

Consider moving from your home office to a commercial office

Are you an entrepreneur, a person who loves the freedom of self-employment, and who doesn’t mind working long hours to build up a business that you can be proud of? Most entrepreneurs open their startup by working from a home office, with the end goal of growing their business into a sizeable, sustainable, flourishing company. For the purpose of this discussion, let’s assume that your startup has outgrown your home office. What do you do?

free tips when moving to your new office

I believe that you have one of two choices: either rent or purchase an office in a commercial space or downsize so that you will fit back into your home office. Downsizing your business after all the hard work to grow your business is not really a viable option; therefore, looking for a bigger office space is the best route to take. Once you have found the right office to suit your unique requirements, the next step is to pack up your existing office and move into your new office.

How do you go about packing up and moving? Let’s face it – moving to a new office is very stressful; consequently, you are likely to need as much help as possible. Here are a few free tips when moving to your new office which will help you get the move over and down with as little downtime and disruption as possible.

Added to these free tips, here are a some important points that you need to consider before you moving into your new office space:

  • Chose your office space wisely.

Make sure that your new office is in an accessible location for both you and your staff. You don’t want to have to spend hours of each day in your car travelling from your home to your new office.

  • Consider your finances.

Office space rentals are expensive; therefore, it’s vital that you can afford to pay the monthly rental costs.

  • Calendarise your move

Ergo, build the moving cost and time into your budget. As we have said before, time costs money, so you need to make sure that you make time to move.

  • Contract a professional removals company to help you move.

It makes sound business sense to take as little time off from your daily business tasks to move; consequently, by hiring professional movers to move your office equipment will cut down on your moving time.

  • Weigh up your options

You do not need to move into a big office with high monthly rental costs. You can increase your office space in stages. Before you move into a big office, you can consider moving into a fully-serviced office where you can rent a couple of desks in an open-plan working space on a monthly basis, or you can move in to a shared office space where you have to use your own furniture.

John and Judy

John was offered a promotion with his firm; however, the caveat was that he and his family would have to relocate to another city. John is married with three children, and a menagerie full of 4-legged children. Just the idea of moving was daunting enough to consider turning down the promotion offer.

Fortunately, reason prevailed, and, along with his wife, Judy, he sat down and compiled a list of what they needed to complete before moving day. They also decided that, as his company would pay for the move, they would hire us to pack and move their household goods. Consequently, we met with them and put together a project plan with included the packing up of their household items, moving them, and then helping them unpack at their destination.


Matt is a young and upcoming millennial. When he started working, he purchased a small apartment in the inner city, while saving as much as he could in order to purchase a brand new home out in the suburbs. As he was a bachelor and hadn’t accumulated much furniture and household goods, he decided he would pack up his own possessions but would ask us to move his furniture to his new home.


Timothy and his fiancée were planning on moving into a new home together once they had married. They came to us for help as Jody, Tim’s fiancée had accumulated a fine collection of antique furniture. We gave them tips for preparing and packing delicate furniture. They also then asked us to amalgamate their furniture and household goods from both of their individual homes and move it to their new home while they were away on their honeymoon.


Pam’s husband of 55 years had just passed away; as a result, she wanted to move from their large family home to a smaller cottage. As you can imagine, downsizing was very difficult for her. Not only did she have to pack up her husband’s personal items, she also had to choose what to take and what to sell. She came to us for help, and we helped her plan her move with exact packing and moving dates so that she had a plan to follow. Needless to say, it wasn’t long before she had sorted out the contents of her home, and she had moved into her new home.

Moving your home Interstate is more challenging than moving within the same state.

Are you considering moving to a new home or office in a new state? Has your company transferred you to one of their other branches in another state?  Do you need to pack up your family and household to move interstate? There are many reasons why you might need to pack up your household or your office, which means that you will have to start packing up your home or office.

Moving is known as one of the most stressful life-events that anyone can go through. Unfortunately, moving interstate is even more stressful than moving locally as it is a much bigger job with complicated logistics.

tips to make packing much easier before moving

Packing and unpacking

We appreciate just how stressful moving can be, so we have decided to pass on our top tips to make packing much easier before moving:

  1. Declutter, recycle and dispose of unwanted items.

The less you move, the easier the task of packing and unpacking will be; therefore, it’s a good idea to sort through all of your household and office items, decide what you want to take with you, and recycle or dispose of the rest.

  1. Packing materials

It is a good idea to make sure that you have gathered enough packing materials such as boxes, packing tape, blankets, and bubble wrap, so that once you have started packing you do not need to stop because you have run out of packing equipment.

  1. New/used boxes

You don’t need to buy new boxes so that you can pack your possessions in. There are places where you can rent new or used boxes. You can also find used boxes at your local grocery store.

  1. Different box sizes

Make sure that you have a range of boxes in different sizes. Smaller boxes are good for heavier items, while bigger boxes are best used for packing lightweight goods in. This will allow you to pick up the box without straining or hurting yourself. For example, if you pack all of your books into a wardrobe box, you won’t be able to pick the box up. Pack all of your books into a range of smaller boxes that are easy to manoeuvre around.

  1. Label each box

In order to prevent chaos at your destination, it’s important to label each box with both its contents and the room it belongs in. In this way, you will be able to see which box belongs where and what is contained within the box.

  1. Packing clothing

A wardrobe box has a metal rail across the top of the box, allowing you to leave all of your hanging clothes on their hangers and to pack them straight into a wardrobe box. You will be able to open this box at your destination and unpack its contents straight into the wardrobe.

  1. Pack emergency items separately

You will need to pack a box consisting of the goods you will need for the first couple of nights in your new home. Label this box well and make sure it is loaded last so it can be unloaded first.  This will allow you to make beds and cook a simple meal while the rest of your household items are being unloaded.

Tips to pack up your home or business with the minimum fuss, stress, and hassle.


Everyone seems to be winding down for the Christmas holidays. We are all looking forward to the long, lazy, relaxing days that we will be spending with family and friends.

What happens if you have to pack and move during this period? You might own a business and the Christmas/New Year period is the only time you are able to shut down your business and move without losing customers. You might have been transferred to another city, or you might be relocating your business to another city. The reality is that there are so many reasons why you might need to move over the festive season.

Most people are exhausted from the long year, and the last thing anyone feels like doing is having to pack and move. Unfortunately, we sometimes just have to get on with packing and moving, no matter how difficult it may seem.

Packing tips

Here are 5 packing tips to help you pack up all of your possessions with the minimum amount of stress and fuss:

  • Packaging materials and boxes

It’s important to make sure that you have enough packaging materials and boxes to pack up all your household/business furniture and other content. There is nothing worse than having to rush out to the shops to buy boxes, packing tape, and protective packing materials. You might not be able to buy more packing materials during the period as all of the packaging companies will more than likely be closed.


  • Industrial strength bubble wrap, newspaper, and blankets for delicate items

You will be amazed at how much fragile furniture and other possession you own. In order to protect these items from damage and breakage during our move, make sure you wrap the smaller items in bubble wrap or newspaper before you pack them in a box. Cover your delicate furniture with blankets and bubble wrap. Secure the blankets etc. around the furniture; thus, making sure that it can’t be scratched, damaged, or broken during the move.

  • Wrap individual items separately

As tempting as it may seem, it is not a good idea to wrap more than one item in the same protective wrapping. It’s important to wrap and pack each item individually; otherwise, you run the risk that these items will be damaged or break during the move.

  • Secure computer hardware

Before you start packing up all of your computers and related peripherals, make sure that you have backed up all of your data; thus, if anything should happen to your computer equipment during the move, you will have up-to-date copies of your data. Once this has been completed, make sure that all of the components such as hard drives are secured inside the PC tower before you pack them up. Finally, wrap all your towers and related peripheral items in bubble wrap before you pack them into boxes.

  • Pack your hanging clothes into wardrobe boxes

A wardrobe box is the largest standard box that you can buy/hire. It is a long box and is constructed with a metal hanging bar at the top of the box. This box is designed to transport all of your hanging clothes without removing them from their hangers; thus, allowing you to pack and unpack your clothing easily and quickly.

Final words

Even though you might be dreading packing during the festive season, you will soon be packed and ready for your move. Then you can enjoy the long, hot, lazy summer days relaxing beside the pool, or at the beach.

Packing up your home is one of the stressful life-events – a simple how-to guide on help you pack up your delicate furniture.

Packing delicate furniture or any furniture for that matter requires proper planning. One of the tasks that you will have to undertake is to decide what items you can take with you, and which items you can’t fit into your new home.


We tend to be great hoarders and keep old/broken items for much longer than we should; therefore, I believe that it’s a good idea to think of your move as a way to spring clean and clear out all of the junk you no longer need or want.

Once you have decided what to take with and what to leave behind, you will then need to decide how you are going pack your delicate possessions.

On the other hand, you do not have to pack up your own delicate furniture, you can consider approaching our cheap and professional removalist in Liverpool for some professional help packing up your furniture.

Here are 6 tips to help you pack your delicate furniture:

1. Decisions….

Possibly the most difficult task of the move is deciding what you want to or can take with you. Make a list all these items. You can give the rest away, or even sell them if you have high-value delicate antiques.

2. Lists and categories…

The next tip is to make a list of all of your items that you will be taking with you. Divide the list up according to fragility and size. This will help you determine number and sizes of packing boxes you will need, as well as what packaging materials to use in order to protect your possessions.

3. Packing and protection…

The third tip is to make sure you purchase adequate amounts of packing boxes (in different sizes), packing tape, bubble wrap, newspaper, and other protective packaging materials. Delicate items often come in awkward-to-wrap shapes and sizes; thus, it’s important to ensure that you purchase enough packing and wrapping materials to suit all of the different delicate item’s shapes and sizes.

4. Blankets, comforters or tarps…

Wrap your delicate items that are too large to fit in boxes in comforters, blankets, or tarps. Make sure that the blankets etc. are secured around the item in order to prevent it from slipping off when being transported.

5. Electronics and computer equipment

Check to see whether you have kept the original boxes for each of these items. If so, do you best to pack them back into their boxes as close to the way the manufacturer originally packed each item. On the other hand, should you not have the original packaging, securely wrap each item in bubble wrap and pack it in a box that is as close to the original box as possible.

6. The art of packing…

Carefully wrap your glassware, dishes, and other small items in bubble wrap, packing paper, or newspaper. Make sure that when you pack each item in a box, there is an adequate amount of padding between the different items and they can’t move.
