Your dream job just came your way. There's just one problem: It's in a faraway state, and you'll have to have an interstate removal. As you were wrapping up loose ends at work, you didn't have time to hire a removalist, pack your things, or prepare all your paperwork. In either case, you are facing a move within the next few days-and you are in panic mode. It's no problem. For ant friction-free movement, here are some handy tips.


1. Call those removalists first!

When moving during their peak season, it's important to book your removalist as soon as possible. Our last-minute removals page, for example, is especially designed to make your home removal quick and easy for you.

If you tell them your situation, they will do their best to accommodate you. Consider having your removalist pack most of your belongings if you haven't packed yet.

2. Organize your paperwork before moving

Make sure your medical, dental, and veterinary records are transferred to the providers in your new location. In such a case, our address change checklist would be a great help. You must fill out all the required paperwork to transfer your children to their new school if you have children in school. Scheduling utility service to be turned on at your new home will allow you to cancel utility service at your old one.

3. Organize your essentials and purge them

Keep it light. Defence families and rising corporate executives know that to move successfully, you must cull your belongings to eliminate all but the most valuable and essential items.

Every piece of paper the kids bring home from school is not necessary. By limiting it to a few, you can enjoy all the memories without all the clutter. In a similar fashion, pitch that clothing that used to fit but you cannot get into today. If you get down to the required weight, the item will probably be hopelessly outdated.

You and your household should keep things that are valuable to you. Sort your collection and pack your most valuable items, whether they're monetary or sentimental. Five sets of crockery really aren't necessary. Donate or sell the items you don't like.

Rather than wasting space on something you value, consider storing it instead. You'll be able to retrieve it if you do find room for it in your new home.

4. Make sure you pack your first-week essentials

Don't forget to pack enough clothes, food, and household necessities for your new home. Important legal documents and valuables should not be left in the moving van.

5. Get Friends and Family to Help You Move

Don't hesitate to reach out to those who are close to you if you run out of time. Organize a farewell party with a takeaway menu and good vibes-and you'll create memories you'll treasure forever. Here are a few tips to help you get settled in your new home in no time. If you are planning to move soon, and you need a removalist in Eastern Suburbs, please call us on 1300 441 331.
