What to Do Before You Move

Moving houses can feel a bit daunting at times. Everything you own is to be packed and whisked away to your new address. Therefore, it’s understandable how the process can seem overwhelming to some. This is the reason it is so imperative to understand exactly what you need to do before you move.

Make a List

The first – and perhaps most important step – you should take in your moving journey is to make a detailed inventory of the items you wish to move. Doing this will help you understand the exact magnitude of your move. Further, by knowing exactly what it is you wish to move, the process of finding a suitable removalist will be made much more streamlined.


Once you understand the size of your move you should be able to settle on a budget that works for you. So, what should you budget? The answer to this question will be heavily reliant on the type of move you are wishing to complete. Outlining whether your move is local, interstate or international will be the deciding factor as to how much your move will cost.

Another important factor to consider is how much you are willing to pay for assurance and the safety of your items. There are a lot of removals companies, but this does not necessarily mean they will all keep you items safe. If you are willing to pay more for a removalist who is nationally qualified through an organisation such as AFRA (Australian Furniture Removalists Association), this should be accounted for in your budget.

Regarding budgeting, it is also important to consider whether you will need to account for the cost of packing and materials. This can include the purchase of items such as boxes, tape or perhaps even bubble wrap!

Reputation & Communication

The next step can be regarded as the biggest and that is booking the removalist you wish to work with. It is imperative that your items are put into safe hands. So how can you do this?

When looking for a removalist company, it is smart to consider the following facets of information:

It may also benefit you to ask around for recommendations for Gold Coast Removalists, as word of mouth is a powerful form of assurance.

Completing these steps will ensure that not only are you well informed about the process but also prepared for your upcoming move.
