10 Essential Home Removal Tips For A Smoother Move, Sydney

Even in the best of times, moving houses can be a challenging process that requires time, effort and organisation. Luckily, T&U Removals is here to offer a helping hand to make the experience stress-free. In this blog, our team of moving home experts gives you expert tips on how to relocate in an efficient way.

Moving House Checklist

Take the Opportunity To Declutter

Our first tip is to cut back on all the unnecessary clutter that invariably builds up in homes over time. Moving home is a good time to take a closer look at all your belongings and discard or donate items that you don’t want to pack. Less packing means you save on packing materials as well as valuable time.

Pack in Advance

There’s nothing more stressful than rushing to pack everything in your home as the moving date draws closer. Start packing well in advance so that you can unpack in an organised manner and reduce the chances of losing belongings or damaging them in transit.

Keep Essentials Within Reach

Not everything needs to go into a taped packing box. T&U Removals recommends packing an easy to carry bag with all the essentials you and your family will need. Items such as a toothbrush, change of clothes, your child’s favourite toy, medications and paperwork should be within reach even during the chaos of a house move.

Break Down Large Items

Large items of furniture such as bed frames should be dismantled well before the move so that the components can be marked to avoid confusion. Most bed frames and furniture use specific screws and bolts that should be kept safe in an envelope so that everything can be reassembled with ease.

Better Packing for Better Protection

Packing household items correctly is the most important aspect of a successful house move. When you are moving houses, always pack heavier items first on the bottom of boxes, with lighter items on top. If there are empty spaces in packing boxes, fill them up with clothing or packing paper to prevent movement in transit. Keep your boxes organised and avoid packing belongings from different rooms into the same box.

Use High Quality Packing Materials

Using high-quality packing materials and tape will give your belongings the best possible protection. Sturdy cardboard boxes are more resistant to wear and tear, easier to carry and can handle heavier loads, including objects that may have sharp edges.

Hire a Trusted House Moving Specialist

Need help with the moving home experience? Hire a trusted moving specialist to help you organise your belongings, pack and move them safely to a new location at a reasonable, all-inclusive price.

Unpack As Soon As Possible

Unpacking can often be a daunting prospect, especially when you’re tired after a long move. The best way to get ahead of this, is to unpack as soon as possible, flatten and stow away boxes and start putting up your belongings in the home.

Create a House Moving Folder

Create a folder that has hardcopies of all receipts, quotes and other paperwork that you may have to refer to during a move.

Change Your Address

Don’t forget to change all addresses before you finally leave your old home. It is always better to update addresses with schools, medical professionals, banks and utility providers so that you feel more settled in your new home when you get there.

Get a Truck With a Loading Ramp

Considering a DIY move? Always hire a moving truck that includes a loading ramp so that you can move heavy objects quickly and safely.
