Preparing For Your Move In Bankstown


While an exciting time, moving is also a stressful time. Few property owners enjoy moving. To take some of the strain from moving, below is a short guide from AAA City Removalists to help your move and transition be more at ease.

A Month Prior to the Move

The time to start to get ready for a move is no less than a month prior to a move. You need to start to get organized and begin to research and decide on your mover. You’ll also want to arrange for disconnection and reconnect services- some movers like Removalist Bankstown a part of AAA City Removalists do provide these services. Arrange to have your utilities disconnected and reconnected at least two to three weeks in advance. You don’t want to move into your new place just to discover that you have to wait a few days for the utilities to be connected.

Go through your furniture and personal belongings that you don’t use, or don’t often use and begin to sort through them, as well as pack. What you won’t be taking to the new place with you, put in a donate pile or a yard sale or throw away pile.

Make a list that includes the following, to notify them of your new address:

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Doctor
  • Bank
  • Post Office

A Week Away

About a week prior to your move, prepare an overnight kit for your first day in your new place. The kit should contain all the essentials to get you through the first night:

  • Basic tools
  • First aid kit
  • Toiletries
  • Prescription medicines

You will also want to have a separate box containing kitchen supplies like:

  • Utensils
  • Mugs or disposable cups
  • Kettle
  • Plates
  • Instant beverages
  • Dish soap and sponge
  • Microwave

You will also want to pack a personal overnight bag for yourself and each member of your family that contains things you’ll need a change of clothes, your favorite pillow and entertainment items. Also, have your sleeping bags handy and ready to go so that each person can have an enjoyable sleep your first night in your new place.

Defrost your fridge and freezer no less than two days prior to your move. Be certain that all Removable Parts are taken out, and the door is property secured. This will help to ensure an easier move, as well as no damage occurring.

Day of the Move

You’ll want to make sure that you not only have all fragile items marked, so they are easily identified, you also need to point them out to your Removalist Hills District. Simply let your movers know what boxes and items are fragile and to handle and load with care before they begin to transfer items onto their vehicle.

You’ll want to walk through each room in the home to make sure that nothing has been forgotten.
Before you wave goodbye to your old home, be sure that your neighbours have your new address, even if you aren’t close as there may be a need for them to get in touch with you at a later date like mail arriving at their home for you or someone looking for you at your old address.

If you will be moving in wet weather, take the following suggestions into mind:
As we mentioned earlier, it is important to start to prepare for your move no less than a month prior to your move. Your Moving Checklist needs to be detailed; and, if you are moving in wet weather, you need to consider the following.

Easily damaged items

Easily damaged items like artwork, wicker furniture, etc. need to be guarded and cushioned with sturdy materials that will protect them from the move and the wet weather. Removalist Fairfield help you in your relocation and they provide the best secure and damage free removal services.

Packing materials and storage boxes
