So, you’ve found your dream house. And what’s more? It’s not that far away from where you are now. PLUS you’ve roped in a few mates with promise of a 6-pack and a takeaway Chinese. Easy, right? Well, then it comes time and things are hectic and disorganised and a mess. There are many things that the most reliable removalists Western Sydney has to offer knows about moving that you might not, through doing multiple moves every single day. This article is about sharing some of those principles.
Organised Packing is Worth the Slog
The biggest and most obvious trick to a good and successful move is an old mantra on this blog. Fail to plan and you better plan to fail. Organise your belongings, boxes and rooms in a way that will make for swift and easy loading and unloading for your friends or Eastern Suburbs or Inner West removalists. It’s worth putting in the hours and hard thinking before the move, take it from me.
Loading your items
This is a task that requires patience, strength, geometry, and tetris skills. Some household belongings are hefty, some are awkward, and some are both. You will need to have a vision of your route from room in your house, to the back of the truck or your car boot with every item. If you’re going to go down the route of DIY moving, then make sure you don’t rush the process.
Change Your Address for Utilities and Bills in Advance
This is something that is totally worth being ahead of the 8 ball on. I suggest writing a to-do list for house moving, and ticking off each item on your list to feel the progress. There’s absolutely nothing worse than missing an important notification or bill because it was mailed to the wrong address, or receiving a bill for someone else’s electricity usage. The worst of all is not connecting your new place to a provider, forgetting all about it because the lights are switching on, and then coming home to it all disconnected.
You May Need to Buy Short Term Storage
Let’s face it, not everything is going to be able to come with us, or we might be selling our sofa as it doesn’t match the shapes, sizes, and decor of the new place. Have a look into a short term storage service.
Research Your New Area
This might be OK if you’re staying in the same suburb or street, but chances are, you are likely moving a little further. If so, make sure to research your local shops, restaurants, public transport options and traffic conditions (red lights, one way streets, etc). This may have a large impact on your new day to day routines and is equally as important as the home itself. Remember, location, location is important.
Removalists are Almost Always Worth the Money
Pay a little bit of money to save a LOT of time and stress – removalists can literally do all of the heavy lifting for you. A good quality removalist will give you a very good quote, will provide extra services like cleaning and packaging materials, and will have insurance to protect your belongings.
Now that you’ve read through, I’m sure you will have a smooth, successful move. Stay safe and happy hunting!
