How to Prepare for your Move

Moving can be a stressful and time consuming ordeal. But it doesn’t have to be. With Careful Hands Movers, you can rest assured that your moving experience will be a positive one. Our team of movers are qualified, experts in their field, providing only the best personal service and careful moving processes for our customers. Here are 4 tips on what we recommend you do prior to the big dreaded moving day, to help make you feel a little more prepared and less overwhelmed!

1. Start packing early

Many weeks prior to moving day, once you’ve confirmed your removalist, schedule, and how you’re going to get to your destination, start the packing. This might be starting with the biggest or smallest room in the house – whatever works best for you. Start by going through your things and making a pile of things you’re going to either give away or donate including household items, furniture or non-perishable food items. Go at a steady pace, moving from room to room and until you’ve only got the kitchen, main family area and bedrooms to go. These can be done closer to the big moving day, after all you still need to eat and sleep!

2. Get labelling

As you’re packing, get out your trust label maker. We suggest marking boxes by room, but it depends on your own personal preference. Label anything that is heavy or fragile so our movers know to be extra careful when loading these items on to our removalist truck. Our movers will take extra care handling all your items, so you don’t need to worry! We offer removalist insurance with every move to make sure everyone and everything is covered for your peace of mind. Additionally, our no damage policy will help assure you that your items will be taken care of and will arrive safely at your new destination.

3. Prepare and plan on updating your personal details

Be sure to alert your bank, insurers, employers, family and friends of your upcoming move and provide them with your new address and / or home phone number.

4. Do your research and plan a visit

Doing your research and visiting an area prior to moving is always a good idea. Book your family in for a mini get away to the new area and have a look at what’s on offer in the area such as local parks, playgrounds, schools, cafes and restaurants, libraries, sporting clubs and other recreational and lifestyle facilities.
