3 Tips for an Effective and Enjoyable Interstate Move

An interstate move may be a great opportunity to build a rewarding career, start a family, or buy a cheap house or apartment in an idyllic small town, where you could feel the warmth of a friendly community. On the other side of the coin, most interstate moves tend to be quite stressful, considering the long distance between your old home and your new residence, plus the fact that you would have to pack, transport and reorganise a large number of household contents.

In this situation, a team of competent, dependable removalists can help you complete this process rapidly, effectively and absolutely stress-free. If you have already decided to rely on the support of experts hired by a local moving company to make your transition simpler and more enjoyable, here are 3 key tips that you should apply to avoid any mistakes while getting ready to say goodbye to your old dwelling and open the door to your new house or apartment.

  1. Research Interstate Removalists.

    Start by calling different companies specialising in interstate removals. Get a few quotes, ask about the additional services that they provide-such as packing and unpacking, and consider multiple factors, including the level of client service, the rates and experience of each candidate before making a final call.

  2. Don’t Exceed Your Allocated Budget.

Choose to work with a team of removalists whose services you could realistically afford, and take all costs into account before signing on the dotted line. Will you need insurance? Will you have to pay extra for certain services, such as the transportation of values requiring special storage conditions in transit? Also, keep in mind that the end costs of furniture and appliance removal are influenced by a number of factors, including the number and size of the things that you wish to take with you in your new home. This is why you should consider trimming your collections as much as possible, to avoid clutter inside your new dwelling and also keep expenses in check. It’s also a good idea to book the services of a removalist as soon as possible (at least 10-12 weeks before your big move) to make sure that you have enough time to research various companies and opt for the one offering the most convenient service package and competitive rates.

  3. Learn How to Pack Like a Pro.

Start by creating your own storage system- prioritise and group your belongings based on their purpose and condition; then put them in labelled containers, use additional packaging materials such as plastic foam if needed, then seal all boxes and let your removalists load your boxes inside their vans. To avoid misplacing some of your items or leaving things behind, create and follow a checklist, and also think about getting insurance for your peace of mind. At the end of the day, by working with experienced interstate movers you could transport the contents of an entire house with ease, in a convenient and cost-effective manner all across Australia.
