Moving house can be a complicated process, packed full of challenges ranging from finding the right house through to settling into your new surroundings.

Book your Furniture movers in Gold coast

If you have lots of possessions that need moving, the chances of you moving them alone are pretty slim. Recruit the help of a moving company, who can offer you professional packers, and book them in early (4-6 weeks before the move). The removalist’s staff is trained to safely transport your belongings in the best way possible and reduce the risk of any damage along the way. Measure the spaces in your new home to ensure that your furniture will fit, and then draw up a plan for furniture placement and provide it to the removalists so that everything will be put in the right place from the get-go.

Pack smartly

Before you start packing, make sure that you have all the essential packing tools you will need, such as boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap and packing paper. Use butchers paper rather than newspaper, which may mark items. Also, always use proper removals boxes, as other boxes such as fruit boxes are flimsy and cannot be properly packed on top of each other. These materials can all be found at your local storage outlet.

Pack room-by-room and clearly label everything so that you know where to find things when you need them. Don’t be tempted to fill boxes with little trinkets from other rooms – keep it all separate, which will make unpacking much easier. Pack large, heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in large boxes. Keep essential items separate and pack these last, so that you will have them right up until you move, and also have easy access to them once you arrive in your new home.

Last minute details

Have a final inspection carried out the day before settlement to ensure that the home is in the condition that you bought it in, and the fittings and fixtures remain the same as those outlined in the contract.  Defrost your refrigerator so that it’s ready for the removalists. Check on top of cupboards for any forgotten items.

Most Furniture Movers in Gold Coast recommend that you unpack one room at a time, but some people prefer to unpack all the essentials first before unloading the rest. However you choose to unpack, take your time and stay focused.
