Things to Remember When Moving House

Moving house is an exciting yet stressful event. There are some things you should consider first before packing up your belongings and moving along to your next destination. These things to remember when moving house can help you for a seamless change.

Getting a Quote

Moving house can be a lengthy and expensive ordeal, especially if it is interstate. The last thing you want when you move to your new home is an unexpected bill, or paying more than you presumed you would. Getting a removalist quote for your furniture removal is imperative so you know how much roughly you are going to pay for the service. Lots of removalist companies offer free quotes, so ensure you compare before deciding.


Insurance is another thing to remember when moving. Contrary to popular belief, removalists aren’t like they are in movies that drop everything while carrying it, but there are still occasions where your belongings could be lost or damaged. Transit insurance offers great peace of mind, because it’s the last thing you want to be stressing about whilst moving. Combining transit insurance with your removal is great value too.

Packing and Unpacking

Packing and unpacking your belongings is usually another daunting thought in the back of your mind that sometimes isn’t favourable after a long journey. Removalists often offer packing and unpacking services to alleviate the burden of moving all of your belongings from your old home to your new one.

Box Hire

Until you start to move, you don’t realise just how many boxes you need to fit all of your belongings in! Box hire is usually quite cheap and companies typically offer free delivery and pick up after you have completed your moving.
