Easymove is the Melbourne moving company that’s here to make moving day a breeze for you and your family.
No one enjoys moving day. Moving to a new house is one of the most stressful days in the life of many people. This is because of the organising, sorting, packing and more. Plus, trying to lift impossibly heavy furniture up and down flights of stairs won’t help! When you’re moving, there are a million things you need to arrange. Change of address notices, applying for a new job, changing your child’s school, connecting up power in your new home… the list goes on!
Here at Easymove, we think that you have enough to deal with already. That’s why we have compiled our list of top tips for an easy move!
It’s time to get organised. The first step is to start a moving list. This checklist should include everything that you need to do before you move. For many families, a moving list includes enrolling their children in a new school and letting their power and internet companies know that they are moving. You may also want to add sending out change of address cards, decluttering your home, and cleaning. Another useful tip is to research ahead of time whether you want to switch power or internet companies at your new address. Call around a few and see if you can nab yourself a better deal.
You should also make a list of the items needed for moving. This might include packing boxes, duct tape, bubble wrap, and tissue paper. Having these at the ready will make it so much easier when you start packing. Otherwise, you will waste time scrounging around for these or running to the store. Having the items needed for moving beforehand will make for a much more efficient move.
Pack A Box for The First Few Days
When you’re packing up your home, most people tend to arrange everything by room. This works exceptionally well, except when you pack up your everyday items as well. Anything that you use every day should be placed in a separate box or two, or three, earmarked ‘everyday’.
It’s unreasonable to expect that you will have everything unpacked on moving day or even in the week following. That’s why having this box of the items you will need immediately will be hugely useful! Rather than ferreting through dozens of packed boxes looking for your everyday essentials, you can find them quickly and easily.
We recommend filling one everyday box with cooking and eating implements you will need immediately. This might include a frying pan, cooking utensils, plates, cups, and cutlery. In another box, place your shampoo, toothbrush, and other toiletry items. Finally, have a box of clothes that you can access easily. You might want to put your old clothes on the top so that you have some casual gear to wear while unpacking in those first few days.
As children grow up and move away, many people downsize into a smaller home. If you are in this situation, you may find that you have more furniture than you need or will fit in your new home. Sorting through it and selling or getting rid of this furniture before moving day is just another thing to get done! If you’re running out of time to sell it, or you want to keep this furniture, why not store it? Easymove can arrange a competitively priced storage option and then take the furniture there on moving day. That’s the benefit of hiring luxury removalists like us! Get it all done at once so it’s not another thing to worry about in the lead up to your big move.
If you have young children who aren’t going to be too helpful on moving day, it can be useful to arrange childcare for them for the day. This means that you can focus on cleaning your previous home or unpacking at the new place without them getting bored and irritable. We often see parents stop and entertain their children, which draws out the moving day and makes everything take that much longer.
Arrange ahead of time to drop off your children to a friend or a family member. This will help you to enjoy a hassle-free moving day.
If you have too much on your plate, let us take care of something on your to-do list. Numerous families get us to do their packing for them. We are luxury removalists, and that includes providing packing services for our clients. So, whether you’re looking for office removals or a house mover, we are the Melbourne moving company who can offer you something extra.
By not having to pack up, you will save yourself a heap of time that you can spend on planning your move. If it is an office move, your employees will appreciate not having to pack up their desks. Book the move over a weekend. That way, they will be able to leave on Friday without doing anything for the move and arrive at the new premises on Monday. They will find their work items in a box on their desk and they can unpack and be ready to work in no time. This can save you money because otherwise, you will need to pay your employees for the time they take to pack. By contrast, our movers are experienced and efficient packers who will get the job done quickly.
