Let’s face it, moving home and/or planning any kind of relocation to a new area is a big deal. Yes, local moving services like ours can help get you and your belongings from A to B safely and easily on the big day. The only problem is that moving isn’t just about packing boxes and/or finding professional moving companies whom you can trust to handle delicate pieces of furniture and family heirlooms.
Cut your Removals Costs by Planning your Move Early
One of the simplest ways to cut costs and reduce stress when moving is to plan your relocation early. Of course, this will always be easier for people moving into a brand new property which is already sitting empty. However, the benefits of setting a moving date as far ahead of schedule are simple. Many local moving services, for example, will quote cheaper moving rates for weekday dates outside of peak moving periods, especially end of month dates and dates outside of the busy Australian summer season.
Always Beware of Hidden Relocation Costs
Are you on a budget and planning to hire a van rather than seek assistance from (apparently) overpriced professional moving companies? If so, be careful. While hiring a self-drive van might sometimes seem like the cheapest and simplest solution, this isn’t always the case. This is because as well as factoring in the price of the size of truck you need, you also need to think about what mileage you will be covering, your overall fuel costs, and whether or not you will also need to take out insurance on your moving vehicle.
The Importance of Packing Boxes for Moving Ahead of Schedule
By far the easiest way to reduce stress when moving is to always pack boxes for moving as far ahead of schedule as possible. Setting a weekend aside to pack simply never works. This is because last minute work and life events will almost always conspire against you. This being the case, make sure to get into the habit of packing boxes for moving every night after work. In like regard, always make sure to have everything aside from essential day to day items packed at least a week ahead of the date of your big move.
Change your Banking and Personal Address Details Early
While moving your family and belongings to a new location can be stressful, it can be doubly stressful to arrange chaadjusting your utility billing addresses and banking details after a move has taken place. This is because essential correspondences will often still be sent to your previous address rather than your new one. This being the case, once a new home purchase or lease agreement has been finalised, always make sure to notify banks, employers, and other people about your upcoming move as expeditiously as possible.
