Whether you need a bigger space for your growing family or you’re taking the plunge and moving across the country, moving into a new home can be an exciting time in anyone’s life. But between packing and dealing with last-minute emergencies, it can also be a highly emotional and stressful experience.
Safe Removalists Australia is highly experienced in helping Australians move houses quickly and efficiently, so we decided to share our top tips for a successful move! In this blog, you’ll find everything from simply saving hacks to locating a reliable mobile storage facility.
Budget for added expenses
No matter how organised we are, life throws us a curveball now and then, and moving is no exception. During the moving process, you’re bound to have some unexpected expenses pop up along the way. If you are in the beginning stages of your move, ensure you allocate some cash for emergencies to prepare you for unexpected costs that may arise. That way, you can keep yourself from dipping into your savings.
During the final stages of moving, where your cooking utensils are likely packed away, you might have to rely on takeout meals throughout the day. In this case, set aside extra funds for takeaway meals to avoid draining your bank account.
Update your address
One common detail many Australians tend to forget when moving is informing billers and other institutions of their new address. During your packing schedule, take some time to jot down a list of places where your address information is stored. This could include any subscriptions that are sent to your home, various insurances, your car registration or even your favourite online retailers!
Toss, keep and store
Moving is the perfect opportunity for deep decluttering. Not everything has to come with you when you move, plus it can help you save on space when you move into your new place. It can also help reduce stress and keep you from feeling overwhelmed.
Dedicate a day to go through each room and declutter the items you no longer need or use. This could include clothes or shoes you don’t wear anymore, old textbooks or appliances that no longer work.
You’ll need to consider your storage options for the items you wish to keep. While many options are available, mobile self-storage delivers a convenient and cost-effective solution — which brings us to our final tip.
Consider a mobile storage service
Mobile storage companies come to your home and pick up your belongings, store them in a secure facility, and then deliver them back to you when you need them.
Mobile storage solutions are a great option for Australians who don’t have a lot of storage space in their home or for people who are moving and need a temporary place to store their belongings. Other benefits of using a mobile self-storage service are:
- Cheap and convenient — This is one of the biggest advantages of using a mobile storage service, as you don’t have to worry about renting a truck or van to move your belongings. The mobile storage company will pick up your belongings and deliver them to your new location, so you don’t have to lift a finger. Safe Removalists Australia offers free delivery to your door and free access to our safe and secure storage facility.
- Helpful extras — Many mobile storage companies provide customers with additional extras to simplify their move. With Safe Removalists Australia, customers can hire plastic moving boxes and access free cardboard boxes and tape.
- Flexibility — No matter how long you need to store your belongings, Safe Removalists Australia gives you the flexibility to take your time during your move, providing access to your items whenever you need them.
