5 Tips To Ensure An Easy Move

Moving house doesn’t have to be stressful. Check out our tips below, and make your next move stress free.

Book 6 weeks out

We recommend booking your removalist company 6 weeks out from your intended moving day. This gives you lots of time to get organised and account for any unexpected events that may pop up! We also suggest, if you can, avoiding booking for a weekend. The prices can be a lot more inflated on the weekends, and these days are in high demand.

Dispose of flammable liquids in advance

It’s actually illegal to transport any flammable liquids. Check any gas cylinders, air bottles or similar containers and empty a few days before the move. Ensure you are also not intending to transport anything like thinners, paint and some cleaning products.

Have a survival kit

A great tip we have picked up from removalists and professional packing companies is to have a survival kit already prepared in advance for the first few days in your new house. This should include those things you find yourself reaching for on the regular, and need on hand (not at the bottom of a box).

Put all the little parts in one box

All those little things that fall to the bottom of the box, put them all in one. Remotes, nuts and bolts, Allen keys, batteries, instructions for things, tv stand legs, those felt dots that stop furniture from scratching the floor. These are the things you will be looking for, use this tip to save yourself pain later.

Measure doors, entrances and hallways first

If you do no other preparation for your move, please just do this. We can’t tell you how many times we have heard horror stories of furniture not fitting through doorways and entrances. It’s much easier to work these things out before! If you have any questions about buying or selling a property on the Mornington Peninsula, we are here for you.
