All of us would agree that its no small feat moving interstate from Melbourne to Sydney. Melbourne’s menopausal weather is one to get used to, let alone converting from NRL to AFL. The rivalry between which sport is better is never ending. Not to mention the long 8-10 hour drive across the border. Here at Interstate Removals moving from Melbourne is a regular thing, here are some hints on how to minimise your stress levels and prepare for your new venture:
What are you taking for your move?
You will need to create an inventory list of all the items you need to move. The inventory list needs to be as accurate as possible, this will minimise the inconvenience of misjudgements on the day of pickup. You do not want anything left behind, or any additional charges to occur. Backloading services would be ideal to look in to if you are likely to not fill an entire removal truck. This will allow you to share the cost of the truck and reduce your carbon footprint.
Change of address – Don’t forget the mail diversion
Start updating your address and contact details with the main companies you use, i.e. Commonwealth Bank, Insurance provider etc. Keep a record of which ones you have done, as it is easy to lose track. If you would rather deal with updating your details later, organise a mail redirection with Australia Post until you settled in to your new abode.
Have a moving out checklist – Smart Mover
It is simple to think we have it all covered, however in times of stress something can be forgotten. Interstate Removals will send you a moving out checklist, along with tips and tricks for packing. This will entail organising your power and phone to be disconnected, organising your pets to be transported, when to clean out the fridge and many more important steps to moving out of your home.
If you are moving from Melbourne to Sydney, organise an experienced removalist like Interstate Removals. Ask us about our weekly backloads and our professional contractors. Once you have us on board, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the drive to Sydney.
