Are you looking for a house to buy or rent right now? Or have you cleared this hurdle and are now feeling anxious about the big move into your new home? Unpack the stress of moving house with these five handy moving tips.
1. Start recruiting early.
Start collecting your packing boxes as soon as you know you’re moving. Ask your family and friends who have recently moved house. Or you could post on your local Buy Nothing Group to save yourself some extra ka-ching. If you need a few extra boxes, you can purchase them from your nearest Bunnings Warehouse or Officeworks.
2. Book the essentials before it’s too late.
Book your removalists, or hire a moving van for the big day. Due to high demand, these bad boys are driving out the door. The earlier you book, the less stressful your move will be. Oh, and don’t forget to order a truck with a loading ramp, your back will thank you for it!
3. Need for speed.
Invest in a ‘Movers Dolly.’ These beauties are small but very effective. If you own heavy furniture or awkward-shaped belongings, you’ll be moving in no time with these wheels; they get the job done swiftly and safely.
4. Give your old belongings the new life they deserve.
Donate your unwanted belongings to help those in need and free up your space before the move. The Australian Red Cross, The Good Sammy’s, and The Salvation Army all have local bins or stores around the city for drop-offs.
