Follow these tips!

It is often the case that life intervenes on one's best-laid plans. A change in health, a new job you must start next week, relationship problems, aging parents, or having to watch your grandchildren because of new work responsibilities may necessitate you to move quickly.

The good news is that you don't need to panic. You can have a smooth short notice home removal if you follow these tips:

1. Hire a removalist to provide boxes

In the rush of a short notice move, you won't have time to collect boxes at stores and from neighbours. Rather than buying boxes, use the ones your removalist provides. As well as saving you time, those boxes are much stronger than the ones found in supermarkets.

2. Eat Takeaway Food for the Duration

Food preparation will not be possible during a quick removal. Instead, opt for healthy takeout options. You won't need to worry about washing dishes if you use disposable utensils.

3. Notify Australia Post, medical providers, and schools

For your mail to be forwarded to your new address, you must notify Australia Post as soon as possible. You should arrange for your utilities to be turned off when you leave and to be turned on when you move. Make sure all your billers are aware of your new address as well. Transfer your medical records and records of your children to your new medical providers and schools by notifying your providers and schools, this is a must when conducting an interstate removal.

4. Ask for Help from Friends and Neighbours

Ask for help whenever you need it. If you need help packing, deciding, or watching your pets, children, or elderly family members while you pack or do your errands, your neighbours and friends may be willing to help.

5. Store What You Can’t Take with You

In the meantime, find a temporary storage facility to house your furniture and other belongings until you find permanent quarters.

6. Ask Your Removalist to Pack Your Goods for You

Short notice moves can leave you without time to pack. Let your removalists handle some or all of this task. As a result of their expertise, they can handle the packing process quickly and efficiently, freeing up your time for other tasks.

7. Pack a Bag for Each Household Member

Don't forget that clothing and toiletries will need to be with you for the first few days of your move, not with your removalists. Be sure to pack a bag for each member of your household so you won't need to buy extra items when you get there.

You can overcome all the special challenges that come with moving on short notice if you follow these tips.
