Finding a new home can be exciting and fun, however sometimes moving to a new house is the worst. It is one of the most disruptive, stressful and chaotic of life experiences. It can also be expensive. Here’s a list of some things you will need to consider when planning the move.
Put simply, you will always need more boxes than you think you will. It’s so much better to over-shoot the mark with this one. You can buy boxes cheaply from Bunnings. Unless you have been hoarding newspapers for the last few months, you will also need bubble wrap or butchers paper.
Moving is dirty. Both the old and new place will need a clean, including many of your items that were cleaned before they left your old house.
If you’re looking to save as much money as possible, don’t hire removalists as it is usually the biggest expense in a move. However, they are also much quicker, a lot less stressful and will mean less physical exertion on your behalf.
With everything packed away in boxes, takeaway is the only option for over a week. Add to that the moving-day thank you when you then shout your family and friends who helped you with the move.
