Moving is exciting. You are setting off on a new adventure, and for those moving to Sydney, there will be no shortage of great things to explore. There are some things to keep in mind, however, to ensure you keep the stress levels low and enjoy the moving experience. To help, the most professional Eastern Suburbs removalists in Sydney, Bills Removalists, have compiled the top ten things you need to know before moving to Sydney.
Moving homes is one of the top five most stressful life events, so read on to learn how to make it less so.
Tip 1: Hire professional movers
Save yourself time, ensure the protection of your belongings and a stack of tricky physical work by outsourcing to the professionals!
Tip 2: Be organised
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail – no truer words have ever been spoken. Think about the things you will need easy access to during your move or upon your arrival, so you aren’t digging through boxes to find a bowl or some underwear!
Tip 3: Gather some friends
Many hands make light work, so a reliable workforce to help you pack or unpack can be very valuable in terms of how long your move will take you.
Tip 4: Ensure you have the right tools
Something like a sack truck to move heavy items can seriously save you time, not to mention make the act of moving a much safer experience. Think ahead and make sure you have everything you need.
Tip 5: Gather those boxes
Boxes – you need a lot of them. Better to play it saves and have several boxes that are easier to move than one big box that holds the entire contents of your kitchen and is heavier than an elephant!
Tip 6: Use belongings as packing material
Rather than adding to the waste pile post-move, use sheets, towels, and clothing as a way to pack and secure precious items. You need to move that stuff anyway, why not do something that helps the environment by cutting down paper and bubble wrap in the process?
Tip 7: Research your new area
Sydney has plenty to see and do in every suburb, hit the ground running by finding the hotspots in your new area beforehand! You’ll need a good spot for that wind-down coffee after your move.
Tip 8: Be wary of tolls
Sydney has many toll roads, so you’ll want to make sure you have appropriate passes to access them and avoid a large fee for unpaid tolls in the mail. Cover yourself by visiting this site.
Tip 9: Avoid peak hour
Peak hour on Sydney roads can be intense. Try to dodge these hours during your arrival as a car or truck full of your possessions in peak hour traffic can be frustrating and time consuming.
Tip 10: Enjoy the experience!
Yes, moving is stressful, but this is an exciting new chapter of your life in an even more exciting area! Savour the experience and enjoy yourself, after all, half the fun is getting there!

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.
