Are you looking to move house to or from Randwick? Perhaps you’re downsizing due to your kids growing up and moving out or perhaps for a tightening of the financial belt…whatever your reasons are, you will want to find the best removalists in Randwick, and saving space is always a must. You should consider the following 8 tips to help you save space:
Put Your Shoes in one Box
We know, we know. It depends how many pairs of shoes you own. But basically, keep your shoes altogether, in one box if possible. This will help you to both save boxes for other items for the move, but it can also serve as a way to work out how much space you need in your new place for your shoes.
Keep Your Clothes on their Hangers
This may seem counterintuitive at first. But hangers can take up a lot of space when you put them altogether. Might as well put them in boxes still attached to the garments they are holding – save that space more.
Plan Your Move
The old saying goes, “fail to prepare and you should prepare to fail”. This is so true when it comes to moving. By using a Moving House Planner , you will be sure to conserve space! Plan what items will go in what boxes and bags. And then stick to it. If you do this, you will always conserve space.
Store Smaller Things in Bigger Things
We don’t just mean putting things in big boxes. We mean, cutlery can fit into pots and pans, clothes or other things can fit into your bags/ suitcases. This is a great way to reduce your trips from your house to the truck!
Take Legs Off Big Ticket Furniture Items
Or probably anything that can be taken off – but legs/ wheels are the most common. When you’re loading up the truck or your trailer, you can really maximise your space simply by reducing the size of the large, heavy furniture items. Your bed frame, or your sofa can take up far less space if you take the wheels or legs off. Usually, doing this helps you to get them out of the door in the first place, but it actually conserves a lot of space.
Scan Any Documents that Can be Scanned
This tip applies to movies, CDs, books etc. Maybe you like having physical copies of books and DVDs and some written documents and forms etc. However, if you’re not attached to holding these physical copies, we thoroughly recommend having soft copies on your computer or device. An incredible amount of space can be saved by having ebooks, itunes, and streaming services as well as saving your filing cabinet in your computer drive.
Fold Your Clothes
There is a temptation to just chuck all your clothes in a box willy nilly. This can be totally understandable based on time constraints. However, it’s much easier to fit more clothes in one box if they are folded up, you can fit around 2-3 times as many clothes in that same box.
Practice Your Tetris Skills
You might be laughing. But hear us out. Tetris is a game where you need to fit boxes into rows and columns to score points. When you complete a row, you get a points bonus. These are skills that will really help you to “match the shapes” in your truck/ trailer with boxes etc. Trust us, you’ll thank us later.
It’s true that finding a top quality removalist such as your efficient inner west removals can help you with a lot of this. However, you might not be using a removalist. Either way, if you follow these tips then you will be sure to save much space!
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.
