So you are planning to move house? The question is, can you trust your interstate removers to do the right job for you? Of course, nothing prepares you completely for the trauma of a major move, but there are some things you can do to minimize stress and make the movement relatively painless. With careful planning and some considerations on how to organize things, one may be surprised at how easy it is to get the intergovernmental step.

You may be lucky enough to have your removal paid for in full by your company, in which case you can place everything in their hands, from packing and preparation to placing your furniture in your new home. But for most people, there are many things to do and usually not much time to do it. So let’s take a look at how you can prepare and plan to make everything as smooth and practical as possible.

The first thing to do is to think carefully about all the things that need to happen. You must cancel all your utilities and make sure you pay all outstanding bills. Many people have a negative report on their credit file because they forgot to pay their last bill.
Next, it pays to think about the space you are moving to. Plan where each piece of furniture will be placed in your new home, and label the furniture in your existing house either by color code or number so that the removal members can easily put the furniture in the right room in your new house.
If your removal advocates are not making the complete move for you, this is a good opportunity to test your friendships by encouraging everyone you know to give you help moving the day. Make sure you distribute tasks in an orderly manner so that there are no overlaps, and prioritize the tasks that take the most time. For example, it can be a timely task to unpack the kitchen, because each cup, saucer and glass must be packed individually and placed in boxes.
Once you have completed a list of all your items, you can get advice from the removal manager on how many boxes you need. Also consider the size of boxes because you do not want too much weight in a single box. Do not forget to buy as much wrapping paper as possible. It is always better to have too much than too little. Also, remember to buy plenty of tape and a few tape dispensers to make sealing boxes much easier.
Make sure the kids take care of the moving day. This is where grandparents and other family members can provide a valuable service, so do not forget to line them up early.
All that is required is a little advance planning and your move can actually be very smooth. Interstate removers are always able to give you a guiding hand, and some of them even provide helpful checklists, but if not, the above five points should get you through.
