Get Rid of Unwanted Belongings
As you pack your possessions, don’t be afraid to get rid of things you don’t want or don’t need. There’s no sense in packing them and taking them with you if you aren’t going to have a place for them. Start a donation and trash pile and toss things into those piles as you go so that you don’t have to deal with items more than once. If you have things you’ve been holding onto that need fixing, be sensible (and ruthless). If you haven’t fixed it yet, will you ever? Throw it away instead of letting it take up valuable space.
Pack with Care
Packing is a big job and we can help you do it. Whether you pack it yourself or let us help you, taking proper care ensures that all of your possessions arrive at your new home intact and safe. Pack like items together and keep things that belong in the same room together too. For example, pack dishes with tea towels for protection, but also because they are both items that will end up in the kitchen when you unload your stuff in your new home.
Start Planning Early
Giving yourself a couple of months to move is ideal. This allows time to book your moving truck, carefully pack everything up and clear out of your old house without being rushed and stressed. You’ll also have time to do any work at the old or new house, arrange for your pet to be moved and place items in storage that you won’t need right away.
Make an Inventory
This is important because it ensures that all of your possessions are accounted for when the move is finished. As you pack your belongings, write down what you have and keep it all in one place, such as in a notebook or on your smartphone. That way you can compare notes if you feel like something is missing and know for sure if you packed it or not. You can also write what’s in each box as you pack it so you can see what it is and identify things that might be missing.
These tips are useful whether you’re doing your own packing or paying professionals to do it. When you need experts in house removals in Bundaberg, call us at Bargara Removals or ask for a quick quote online.
