Whether you’re moving to Dunsborough, Melville or Cottesloe, careful planning is the key to an easy move, even if you hire professionals. Most professional movers take a lot of pride in their work and great care with client’s possessions, but accidents can happen. Many movers have insurance policies from full insurance to limited policies for specific items. Full value protection costs more but may be worth it if you are moving fragile goods over a long distance. A restricted policy might be better for you if you are moving short distances and need to cover the basics like glassware, kitchen goods and the flat screen TV. Today, most households choose to do the packing themselves. Check to see if the removalist insurance policy will cover your contents if you choose to do all the packing. Number the boxes clearly so they refer to a more detailed contents schedule kept by you. Work out a basic floor plan for your new home so the movers can place all the heavy items like beds and tables where you want them. Also take time to label the boxes to be placed in particular rooms. This will really help with the unpacking task at the other end. If you decide on moving things yourself, plan the operation carefully. You’ll need lots of help from friends and family. Before you hire a truck work out: · how much you need to move · where you are going to put it · identify items that might require special attention · if you need trolleys, straps and blankets You might also need to be prepared for how you might react if a volunteer, friend or family member breaks a prized possession or injures themselves. Professional removalists are never rushed and work to a plan. Allow yourself plenty of time for the move and map out an order for the items to be loaded and unloaded to make the best use of the van, your time and the space. Remember, the boxes loaded first into the truck are will be the last ones to come out, so work with that. Moving is tiring so don’t rush the process. Organisation is the key to a stress free and easy move. Pack a small overnight bag before the move. Take a change of clothing and a few essentials so that you don’t have to rummage through boxes for your toothbrush at the end of the day. It is possible to take some of the stress out of moving by being organised. Do you want to move to a new home?
