Tips for a Stress-Free Gold Coast Move

While moving to a new home can be exciting, it can also be a challenging chore, especially if you are moving a whole house or needing to travel a long distance. It involves planning, organisation, and considerable physical and mental effort. By following a few simple tips, you can reduce your stress levels and make your Gold Coast move as smooth as possible. Whether you’re moving locally or interstate, these tips are helpful.


1. Plan Ahead

Careful and early planning is key to a successful move. Start planning at least 2 months before your moving date—possibly less if moving only locally or packing up a smaller household. Make a timeline and checklist of all the tasks you need to complete before your move. Set a budget and stick to it.

Make arrangements for packing supplies, such as boxes, tape, and markers. This is something Robina Removals can help you with as well. Planning ahead saves you from last-minute panic.


2. Declutter Before the Move

Moving is an excellent opportunity to get rid of things that you no longer use or need. Sort through your belongings and donate, sell, or discard anything you haven’t used in a while.

You can opt to sell items that are in good condition but no longer serve a purpose, such as clothing, books, and furniture. Any items that are broken or damaged beyond repair should already be discarded. Decluttering will not only make packing easier but also save you money: you can reduce moving coasts, and possibly earn cash to add to your moving budget.

As a Gold Coast removalist, we charge based on the time it takes to move your items, so the less items needing to be moved, the cheaper it will be.


3. Pack Systematically, or Better: Use Professional Packers

Packing is one of the most time-consuming and daunting aspects of moving. To make the process easier, pack systematically and label each box clearly with the contents and destination room.

Proper labeling is essential to avoid confusion and save time when unpacking. Use a permanent marker to label boxes with their contents and the room they belong to. You can also use colour-coded labels to make it easier to identify boxes or household item types.

Use high-quality packing materials, such as bubble wrap, packing paper, and sturdy boxes, to protect your belongings during transit. Pack heavy items in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes. Avoid overpacking boxes, as this can make them susceptible to breaking and difficult to lift and transport.

Better still, you can use a team of professional packers from Robina Removals. Robina Removals is accredited to relocate government employees. All such moves require pre-pack, so our team has all the required skills, knowledge, and materials to make sure that your valuable belongings are protected. 


4. Take Inventory and Photos

Before you pack your belongings, take inventory and photos of each item. This will help you keep track of your belongings and identify if anything is missing or damaged. Use a spreadsheet or app to create a detailed inventory of each box and its contents. Take photos of any valuable or fragile items, such as artwork, electronics, and antiques, and note their condition.

At Robina Removals, our team has extensive experience and special forms to conduct the inventory inspection and produce Inventory Condition Report (ICR). Please let our removals consultant if you would like our help. 


5. Book a Reputable Moving Company

Hiring a reputable Gold Coast moving company like Robina Removals can save you time, effort, and stress.

We provide a formal quote (fixed or an hourly rate) that outlines all the costs and services involved in your move. This helps avoid any surprises or hidden fees later on. You can call us at (07) 55 200 488 to get your custom quote or fill out our quote request form.

Make sure to provide accurate information about the size and type of your move, such as the number of furniture or items, your exact current and new locations, and any special items that require extra care.

You can read reviews from previous customers to ensure you’re getting reliable service. Any good removals company will provide you with detailed cost information and happily answer any questions you may have about the moving process.


6. Communicate With Your Movers

Communication is key when working with a moving company. Make sure to provide them with clear instructions and access to your home. If you have any special requests, such as moving fragile or valuable items, let them know in advance. This will ensure a smooth and efficient move.
