How to Lower The Stress during Your Sydney Move

How to Lower The Stress during Your Sydney Move


When moving, stress levels seem to rise. Before you let yourself get too wound up, consider the following tips from AAA City Removalist on how to keep stress down during your Sydney move.

Get rid of the clutter.

Clutter is stressful, and when moving the last thing you want to fill your new home with is clutter. Clean out your closets, your drawers, and organize. Organising now will help ease the stress as you will not have as much to move, nor will you be filling your new home with unnecessary items. Decluttering can also mean a few extra dollars if you have a yard sale with the items, or at the very least, you can donate the items to your favourite charity and have a tax deduction at the end of the year, so be sure to get a receipt.

Keep your days clear.

When moving it is essential to allow yourself ample time. If you are running from one end of town to another, you will be stressed. Try to arrange your schedule so that you can handle all the tasks that you have to get done. Forget about the night out, and organise and pack. When you have to go across town, get out your to-do list and be sure that you take care of everything that needs to be done in that area while you are there, etc.



If you are not using a moving company like AAA City Removalist that supplies boxes, then start to accumulate boxes so that you have plenty when packing time rolls around. Ask your grocer and your local liquor store to save boxes for you.  Also, start to accumulate newspaper. Save your daily papers and ask your neighbours or friends to save theirs, as well.


When you pack, it is essential to have a plan.  One of the best ways to pack is to pack room by room. You may choose to have one packing room with all your boxes and supplies and move the room to the packing room, packing up the items there. Whatever you do, have all your boxes and supplies before you start to pack. When you are packing, be sure to pack your essentials box for your first night into your new home.

Keeping your valuables safe

When packing valuables, be sure that you have them in something that protects them, as well as having them in a safe location, such as on your person, or inside of your purse or a safe deposit box.

Don’t procrastinate

Procrastinating is a stress builder as suddenly you will have more to handle than you can. Allow yourself plenty of time when moving. Put the date on the calendar and create a “to-do” list so that you know what needs to be done and when to do the tasks, crossing them off your list as you go.


One of the best ways to reduce stress when moving in Sydney is to get help. Enlist friends and family or get or hire a removalist. Having the help, you need to pack and move furniture and household items will help to reduce the stress as most homeowners cannot move a home themselves.
