Not only can we handle local moves, but we can also help you with those further away. Our team is able to assist you with both local and interstate moves and Bundaberg is one location where we are happy to be when you need to move house. We’ll get it all moved from one house to another without the stress you expect.

Packing and Unpacking

The task of packing and unpacking is perhaps one of the most time consuming jobs associated with moving house. Our removalists are able to help you every step of the way and know the best ways to get everything stowed in boxes so it’s safe and secure during transport. We also have packing materials so we come to you with everything needed to pack it up. Then, when you get to your new home, we will be there to help you unpack it all too.

Packing Materials

As mentioned above, we can provide you with the materials needed to pack well. In addition to boxes, that includes tape, paper for wrapping breakable items and covers for your belongings. This ensures that everything is safe during the move and that you won’t get any surprises when you arrive.

Preparation Is Key

When it comes to moving house, preparation is key. Ensuring all of your belongings are safely packed and ready for collection prior to the big day can significantly reduce your overall stress levels when it comes time to move. A bit of pre-emptive organisation can go a long way, so here are some tips for ensuring everything goes smoothly.

Label Your Boxes

The last thing you want when you arrive at your new property is a pile of boxes and no idea where anything is. Labelling each box with the room that it needs depositing into is a great way to speed up the process, and makes it easier to prioritise unboxing the essentials during the first days in your new property.

Clearly write the contents and room it belongs to on each box using a permanent marker, and our moving team will take care of the rest.

Pack A ‘first Day Essentials’ Box

You’ve arrived at your new home after a busy day of packing, travelling and finalising the details. Now all you want is a cup of coffee and a snack before the unboxing starts – but you have no idea where to find what you’re looking for. Packing a ‘first day essentials’ box ensures you can easily locate the belongings you will need during the first 24 hours in your new property. We recommend including:

  • Kettle
  • Mugs & glasses
  • Tea bags, coffee or soft drinks
  • Snacks – or cash for a takeout!
  • A change of clothes
  • Toiletries for your first night: toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, toilet roll etc.
  • Any medication
  • Phone chargers
  • Bedding, or sleeping bags if your bed is yet to arrive or be assembled

Have A Clear-out

Moving house is a great time to have a clear-out and get rid of any belongings you no longer want. Clearing out your possessions prior to moving day means you aren’t transporting unnecessary luggage from A to B and can make the unpacking process a lot easier when you reach your new home. Why not organise a yard sale and earn a bit of extra cash to help with the cost of moving?

Arrange Pet Care

Moving day can be stressful for your pets, and it may be best to get them out of the way until you’re settled in your new home. Consider arranging pet care for your furry friends for the duration of the moving period – check out local pet-sitting services, or enlist the help of friends or family. Although you mightn’t want to part with your pet, spending a few days apart during moving can help to keep them feeling calm and happy.

Should pet care not be an option, ensure you have adequate plans in place to transport your pet during the big move. Invest in a comfortable carry case that is large enough for your pet, and make sure you pad it out with their favourite blanket or toy. You’ll need to make sure you have food, water and any leads at hand too, so consider adding these into your ‘first day essentials’ box.

Other Services

In addition to the primary services listed above, we also have a few that you may want to take advantage of in other situations. We offer backloading so you can save money when you only need to move a few items. If you need help taking furniture apart for the move and then putting it back together upon arrival, we can help with that too. If you’re not taking everything with you, we have secure storage facilities where it will be safe until you’re ready for it.
