The thought of moving will cause many of us to pause and put the kettle on; moving can be stressful. However, having professional movers and packers makes all the difference in helping create order from chaos. Whether your move is to the next suburb or the next town, an experienced moving and packing service will make the world of difference in helping overcome the challenges involved in moving. 

The initial chaos of packing and moving

You’ve got a couple of options when moving. You can either pack up your own home, or call in the experts and let them pack and unpack your belongings.

Packing and moving companies turn what looks like chaos into a calm, ordered process, leaving you ready to start life in your new home. Having an experienced moving and packing service will make a big difference to ensure your most treasured and fragile possessions are well looked after. 

To help overcome the chaos, your movers and packers will have boxes, porta-robes and bubble wrap available to ensure your items are well protected. That way, when moving day arrives, your special items will be well looked after. The movers can then handle all the work of packing and unpacking your boxes, leaving you to settle into your new home faster. 

Overcoming the challenge of decluttering

When moving, the challenge of dealing with years of clutter, whether it be in the home, office or yard, can be overwhelming. Packing and moving companies that offer a premoval decluttering service can alleviate the stress and help you move with only what you really need. 

A moving and packing firm that offers this sort of help would be like a gift! Help to clean up the yard – tick; getting rid of years’ worth of office files – tick; and giving the illusion of more space thereby increasing the chance of achieving your home’s sale price. Yes – big tick!

Creating an organised packing plan

Being organised on moving day will save you a lot of time afterwards. For your own peace of mind, make a list of what you need to achieve on the day. This will be your master list which includes everything from, ‘don’t forget dog bowls’ to ‘drop off the keys.’ 

Next, create an organised packing plan which – if you’re packing up your own house – includes the number of boxes per room. This will help come moving day when things tend to happen rather quickly. 

Getting packing materials from the moving and packing service will allow you to start packing straight away so you’ll have a good idea of how many boxes will be needed. It’s also useful – if you’re going directly from one property to another – to label or colour code your furniture for the new property. 

If you’ve decided to have your moving service pack and unpack your boxes, they’ll create the packing plan and be responsible for ticking off each box and itemising all your possessions. They’ll number and label each box so that as they’re unloaded, each box can be delivered directly to the room they’re intended for. This will make moving less chaotic.

Tackling the logistics of transportation and storage

To pack and move is a big deal. Sometimes you’re not just moving a few streets over but maybe all the way up the coast. As you think about your family’s next adventure, consider packing and moving companies that have the experience and knowledge needed for your move. Maybe you’re relocating 1500 kilometres away with pets and valuable artworks. You need a moving service that can tackle the logistics of transportation and any storage that may be required. Professional movers and packers offer storage promotions, often between four and eight weeks. Keep an eye out for these before you decide on a moving company, especially if your family has a long-haul move coming up.

Efficiently unpacking and settling into your new space

Packing can seem like a never-ending job and once the move is done, there’s the unpack. Torture! Unless of course, there’s an option to get someone else to do it for you. 

Moving and packing services provide dedicated teams that remove the hassle from already tired homeowners by completing the job in a lot less time. Teams are experienced, armed with the right materials, and will treat your belongings with the care they deserve. 

Conclusion: Turning chaos into order

Moving house can be a messy, chaotic experience, but in the hands of experts, it doesn’t have to be. Using professionals who know how to pack and move house will ensure the job is done as quickly and efficiently as possible so order is restored and you can settle into your new home as soon as possible. 

Moving house? Don’t be afraid to call in the experts – your peace of mind is worth it!
