Moving house fast and easily

Get organised before moving day

We’ve put together a list of tips and ideas to help you get everything in order before the moving van arrives – and help make moving in as easy as possible.

Start early and make moving simple with our week-by-week moving checklist

The list of things to do when moving home can seem endless but don’t worry, it’s not. Our moving checklist will help make sure you don’t miss a thing.

Obtain a floor plan of your new home and plan what furniture will go where.

Have a garage sale – get rid of the things you don’t want or that won’t fit in your new home anymore. If they don’t sell on the day, drop them off at a charity shop.

Start collecting boxes of various sizes, this will save you lots of money instead of having to buy all your moving boxes.

Decide whether you are going to rent a van and move everything yourself, or hire removalists. 

Remember to hold or redirect your mail

If you’re moving, redirect or hold your mail with Australia Post so it moves with you. You can also notify providers of your changed address to ease the hassle of the move process. ^
