How to organize a move step by step?

Moving houses takes a great deal of your time and energy. Not only because you have to pack all your belongings and assemble and disassemble the furniture that you will take with you to the new home, but also because you must carry out some procedures related to the supplies of water, electricity, gas, Internet, etc. So it is normal for you to feel overwhelmed just thinking about it. You may not be able to move mountains, but you can go little by little if you organize it in advance. Here at RBR Moving, we explain how to organize a move step by step.

When organizing a move, start 2 months before

1. Order and throw away what you don't need

Organize things room by room to decide what you would take with you and what you don't use and are going to throw away or donate. You should also ask yourself if there are items that will need special packaging or take out insurance for valuables.

2. Compare moving companies

If you are going to hire the services of a moving company, it is important that you look early. Do not rely on estimates over the phone: ask them to visit you so they can analyze the real cost of the move and can give you a written estimate. This will avoid unpleasant surprises of additional charges. Contact us today!

3. Create a moving schedule

Use the calendar to keep track of everything you do. Have a folder to keep estimates and receipts. Also, make an inventory of all the items that you will take with you on the move.

Six weeks to move

1. Order supplies

Buy cardboard boxes, packing materials, and permanent markers to see what you put in each box. Pad the inside of the boxes well if you are including fragile objects.

2. Spend or throw away

Start spending what you don't want to take with you like frozen food, cleaning products, or perishable items. Anything you do not spend, you will have to throw it away or give it to someone.

3. Take measurements

Check the dimensions of your new home and make sure the furniture will fit through the door.

One month before move-in

1. Choose a moving company and confirm the details

When choosing a company, it is important that you have a written contract with the date of the move, the costs included in the service and other details.

2. Start packing

Pack the things you use less frequently first, and while you're doing it, think about whether or not it's worth taking out additional insurance to cover expenses in case they get broken or lost. The ideal is to declare any item with a cost greater than 100 AUD.

3. Labels

It is important that each box has its number and a label with its content, as well as the room in which it goes. So you can control the inventory and have everything located when you arrive.

4. Valuables separately

Items such as jewelry or important documents are best taken by yourself to your new home. That way they will be safe.

5. Make the change of address

Notify the change of address to the bank, supply companies and others. It doesn't hurt to ask a close neighbor to check your mail from time to time after you've moved.

Two weeks before moving in

1. Ask for the day off from work

By law, Australian workers have the right to a day off for moving. Request it in advance so that you can make the transfer comfortably.

Just a week away from the big day

1. Organize a medicine cabinet

Carry the emergency medications that you may need for the next two weeks in a box, since the rest of the things should be practically packed.

2. Pack your bags

Finish packing your things a few days before your move-in date. Pack a suitcase for each family member with clothes and hygiene items for the first few days.

A few days before you move in

1. Defrost the refrigerator

If you're taking the fridge with you, be sure to empty it, clean it, and defrost it at least 24 hours before moving day.

2. Check all the details

Confirm all the details with the moving company. Give them your contact information and mobile phone so they can talk to you in case of any changes or problems.

3. Gather the money for payment

If you haven't paid for the service yet, have your credit card handy or collect the cash. It is always good to leave a little tip if you are satisfied with the work.

Move-in day! The most important

1. Verify

Make sure that the moving truck that comes to your house is the one you have hired. These types of tricks are more common than it seems. The client hires a larger truck and a smaller one arrives where things are more crowded.

2. Take inventory

Before the company begins the transfer, check that all the boxes and furniture that you want to take with you have been put in the truck.
