Moving is not easy, especially if you have years of stuff to move. One way to make it easier is to hire Perth removalists. If you are on a tight schedule, they can do a full move for you. This includes packing everything, loading it, transporting it, and then unloading and unpacking it for you. Whether you are packing things yourself or letting a removalist do it for you, there are some things you should do first.

Before things are packed for the move, go through your stuff room by room and throw out things that are broken or outlived their purpose. Other things can be donate or you could have a yard sale to make some extra money.

If you are just hiring them to move your boxes and you are packing boxes yourself, do it room by room. If you haphazardly pack boxes, it will take longer. Have a checklist so you do not forget anything. If the children are old enough, they can be task with packing their toys.
Make a moving binder where you can keep all the important information such as your rental agreement with the movers, a checklist to remind you when to turn the utilities off at the old house and on at the new home, and other important information like school records. This will make it easier to find information instead of having to search for it in packed boxes.
When packing, pack a box of essentials for every member of the house. It should include sleepwear, change of clothes, and anything else they might need to help get through a night before everything is unpack and put away.
Go to the post office and do a change of address about a month before you move with the date you want it to take effect. Also, notify your utility company of the date you want everything turned off at your current address and turned on at your new one.
Do not wait until the last minute to pack. Start early so you won’t feel rushed. If you are hiring a removalist, you want to have everything ready for them to move when they arrive.
Following these simple tips will help to make your move easier and it will go smoother. To make it even easier, hire a removalist for a full move and you will not have to worry about anything. Yes, it might be a little more expensive but it will make things easier.
