Moving homes can be stressful and half the time you might feel that you are running around like a chicken that’s lost its head. However, it doesn’t have to be hard if you organise yourself and your family in advance so the move goes as smoothly as possible. This can be done by notifying everyone of your new address, organizing your household items and booking Brisbane truck hire or moving services.
Who to notify
Before you move it is important to notify everyone of your new address. This includes subscription services, Government agencies, schools, banks, etc. If you are stuck for who to notify create a list and check them off one by one as you notify them. This will make sure you notify as many people as possible.
You will also need to notify your electrical provider, gas supplier and the rates department of the day that you move in. This is to make sure that your new home is fully functioning with gas, electricity and water when you settle so your family isn’t put out.
Organising your household items
After notifying everyone that you are moving the next step is to organise your household items. To start, you should separate the things you need and don’t really need. You can sell the things you don’t want so that you have fewer items to pack when you move.
If you can’t sell the items then you can donate them to charity or throw them away depending on what they are. This will allow you to focus on the items that you are keeping and the workload will be less in the long run.
For the items you are keeping it is important to separate them into groups. Documents and important files should be kept together and things like books, kids toys, kitchen utensils and clothes should be separated into their own categories as well. This will make it easier to access your items after you have moved into your new home.
Should you hire a truck or moving service?
A moving service is great for those who can’t move heavy items by themselves. A team will load your items into their vehicle, drive to your new address and unload your items there. This is convenient but can be expensive depending on the amount of time it takes to move everything. This can be troublesome if you are not packed and ready.
Brisbane truck hire is also a great option as you can hire the vehicle for as long as you need. It doesn’t come with movers to help with the heavy lifting but if you have friends and family that can help it is a cheaper option.
