All the kids are now living on their own. You spend a lot of time dusting, mowing, and sweeping. The time has come for you and your partner to downsize during a home removal.

How about all your stuff? What is the point of moving into a smaller home when we can hardly fit all our stuff into this one?

Hold on to your treasures!

Thanks for asking. There is a possibility that your stuff is causing the problem. The first thing you should do is go through all your belongings. Set aside the heirlooms, the keepsakes, and the expensive furniture.

Sort out the stuff you rarely use!

After that, there's the stuff you don't need and don't want, but have been hoarding for a rainy day. Something like that. You know how it feels? It's a relic from your mother's grandmother, who lived through the Great Depression and taught her (and you) to treasure every scrap. Donate or recycle them. There is a possibility that they may be someone's treasure, you want to get this done correctly because you don’t want to realize you left something behind, especially during an interstate removal.

Finally, store the belongings that you rarely use in another corner. Invest a couple of months in furniture removals storage by contacting your removalist. If you no longer miss them after that, divide them into two categories: 'Sell' and 'Donate'. Donate those you can and sell the rest at a garage sale or on Gumtree.

Find the right home for you!

Once you've cleared out the clutter, you can begin looking for a smaller home. If you are looking for a house to sell, speak with several local real estate professionals.

Why not clear out the clutter first? All other things being equal, a clutter-free house is more likely to sell for more money than one filled with stuff.

Choose a home that will not only accommodate all your remaining belongings but also a more downsized lifestyle. Materials that require little maintenance and surfaces that won't collect dust can reduce your household chores.

You can pocket the difference when you buy a smaller home because it usually costs less. You've always wanted to visit a remote island? When you downsize, you may be able to do it.

Finally, once you've sold your old house, you'll save money on moving. A removalist will usually charge less if you have fewer belongings. Our two men and a truck page also offers smaller trucks.  Keep heirlooms and other valuables with them and have them handled with special care.
