How to Handle Your House Removals Like a Pro

Ged Lunny - Monday, October 01, 2018

House removals can either be a breeze or a big source of worry. It all boils down to one thing, and that’s preparation. Needless to say, there’s a normal amount of stress that will come with any relocation, but that doesn’t mean it’s something you can’t be prepared for. If you find yourself concerned about an upcoming house removal that will take you to or from the Sunshine Coast, then read through the following article to see how you can make life a whole lot easier.


Preparation is absolutely essential if you want your house removal to go smoothly. And a smooth house removal process only amounts to less stress, and more time for you to focus on other tasks. It helps to get organised before the big move, and this includes keeping your professional removalist in the loop of any plans you may be making.

Your Personal Priority Box


Let’s start from the basics. With any relocation or house removal comes a need for packing. Are you packing your things in an order that will make the move easy? Before we get ahead of ourselves, how about starting with your personal needs? Set aside your personal items into a priority box that will travel with you. This should make absolute sense, as there’s always the chance that you may not have access to all your other items at all times during the move. This box should keep all the things you would need within the first day of your move. Think about all the essentials you’ll need for your personal hygiene – such as a change of clothes, basic toiletries, and any accessories that may come with your laptop or mobile phone.

Items According To Rooms


Now that you’ve got your immediate necessities out of the way, it’s time to have a thought about how you want everything else organised. When it comes to keeping your house removal smooth and efficient, think about stashing your items away in order of the rooms they belong in. Furniture and electric appliances tend to be bulky on their own, so there’s no need to worry about that for now. Go through each of your rooms and think about where the items in each room will end up based on their room equivalent at your destination. If you are packing items to be moved from one study room to another, then it should make sense to try and fit the items that sit on a shelf within the same few boxes. It definitely helps to keep things organised if your boxes are labelled according to the room, and area of the room in which those items belong!

Get the Family Involved


House removals don’t have to be a responsibility that you handle alone. Whether you’re moving with your housemates, or with the rest of your family, it could be a shared responsibility and experience for the lot of you. Just as you might want to organise your packing according to each individual room, it might help for you to delegate the packing and organising of each room to a different member of your household. That way, the house removal process can become a shared experience that you can all work on to turn into good, lasting memories.


Remember: house removals don’t have to be stressful! All it takes is a bit of preparation. And if you ever run into any problems, you can always call on your friendly professional removalist to help you keep things organised!
