Anyway, you have made the decision, so better be ready for it. You are smart, and you know moving is stressful. You did your research and hired the right Cheap Removalists Melbourne to relocate you.
Mover’s staff works like machines, so it’s your responsibility to create the right working environment for them. How can you help them? How do you get ready for the move in advance? I am giving you top tips on what to do before a moving day (Advice from Cheap Removalists Melbourne.) This is a series. Let’s begin.
Things to do (4-6 weeks prior):
1) Booking Cheap Removalists Melbourne: Well, this step is the vital one. Booking your removalists in advance allows you to hire your first choice. Many movers are there in Melbourne, but finding the right firm for your relocation is a tricky task. I mean, you have to get it right in the first place. What’s your budget? Depending on your budget, you can compare mover’s quotes. OK, it’s not about hiring the cheapest mover.
Make a list of services you will need. Packing, storage, and so on. Arrange on-site visits with 3-4 Cheap Removalists Melbourne. No quotes online or over the phone, please. Know about liability coverage and insurance. Don’t just settle with the first company you see on the Internet. Ask for references from friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
2) Prepare your place:
* Are you living in a rented property? If you are, inform the landlord about leaving the house within the next few weeks, so he can take actions to quit your lease. Repair any damages from your side. Handing over the house without any damages would get you the full bond back.
* This is the time for sorting out your stuff. Go around the house and make a list of items that goes into the new house and what goes to the bin. If you have many items to throw, contact the local council for a rubbish pick-up. Don’t take any unnecessary items into your new home. Taking junks into your new home would increase cost for transport too. It’s simple. Leave the junks.
* Here’s a good point to remember. Usually, we forget our garage, attic, back garden shelter, and the garden. Remember to show these areas to the Cheap Removalists Melbourne representative during the on-site assessment. Your garage may have many items that should go to the bin. The back garden shelter is the same. You don’t take any flammable liquids so get rid of them. Your kitchen may have expired food packets and canned foods.
3) Legal stuff: Here’s a headache. You will have to visit some places to get these done. Meet lawyers/estate agents to confirm the key collection day. If it’s an interstate move, recheck your car condition and insurance. If you are moving overseas, plan the things in advance. Inform your address change to the Electoral Office. Your driving license and car registration address need to update too. Inform the “Australia Post” about your new address. Newspaper deliveries and magazine subscriptions? Send a group email to your friends and family members.
OK, let’s meet again with part-2.
