A House Moving Guide for Busy Professionals

Moving house is an exciting time, but it can also be incredibly stressful, especially for busy professionals who have little time to spare. Luckily, with some careful planning and preparation, you can minimise stress and make your house move as smoothly as possible. In this guide, we will provide you with everything you need to know to ensure that your house move is a success.


Planning Your Move

The key to a successful house move is careful planning. This means creating a schedule and sticking to it. Start by setting a date for your move and working backwards from there. This will give you a clear idea of how much time you need and help you stick to a schedule.

Other things to consider during the planning phase include:

  1. Sort through your belongings and decide what to keep, donate, or throw away.
  2. Make arrangements for the disposal of any large items that you don’t want to take with you.
  3. Notify utility companies, banks, and other organisations of your new address.
  4. Arrange for your mail or deliveries to be forwarded to your new address.

Choosing a Removalist

Choosing the right removalist is crucial to the success of your house move. It’s important to choose a company that you can trust to handle your belongings carefully and deliver them to you efficiently.

When choosing a removalist, consider:

  1. The company’s reputation and track record
  2. Whether they are insured and licensed
  3. Their staff training and experience
  4. Whether they provide other services like packing, unpacking, and storage solutions


Packing Your Belongings

Packing your belongings is one of the most time-consuming aspects of a move. It’s crucial to start packing well in advance. Start by packing items that you won’t need in the weeks leading up to your move, such as out-of-season clothing, books, and small decorative items.

When packing, make sure to:

  1. Use sturdy boxes that can sufficiently hold your items.
  2. Label each box clearly with its contents.
  3. Pack fragile items carefully, with bubble wrap or newspaper.
  4. Pack heavy items in smaller boxes to make them easier to lift and move.
  5. Consider hiring professional packers if you are short on time. 


Moving Day

Moving day can be hectic, but with we can help make the process as smooth as possible. Other than availing of our greater Gold Coast removals, here are some tips to help you stay organised:

  1. Keep important documents in a safe and easily accessible place.
  2. Take an inventory of your belongings as they are loaded onto the truck to ensure that nothing is left behind.
  3. Make sure that we have your contact details in case of any issues during transit. 



The first step to unpacking is having a plan in place. Identify which items you’ll need right away and which ones can wait a while. Consider the layout of your new home and which rooms you’ll need to prioritise. Create a to-do list to keep yourself on track.

Unpacking the essentials first can help you settle into your new home quickly. Begin with items like bedding, toiletries, and kitchen essentials. This way, you’ll have everything you need to feel comfortable in your new place.


Organising Your New Home

Organising your belongings room by room can help you stay organised and focused. Start with one room and unpack and organise all the items in that room before moving on to the next one. This will help you avoid getting overwhelmed and ensure that everything is in its proper place.
Moving houses is a great opportunity to get rid of unnecessary items. Consider donating or selling items that you no longer need or use. This will not only make the unpacking process easier, but it will also help you declutter your new home.


Opting for storage solutions can help maximise your new space and keep your belongings organised. We offer Gold Coast removals and storage as a bundle, depending on what you need.
