Moving interstate takes of planning and preparation. There are so many things to organise besides the move itself that the last thing you want to do is be worried about the removalists.
Here are three of the most important things you need to do to make sure your interstate move goes smoothly.
1. Find the right interstate removalist
There are many removalists that do interstate relocations, but not all of these companies provide the proper training of their personnel for this task.
Distance is a huge factor in transferring all your items and furniture, and you need to make sure your removalist knows how to handle everything including your most fragile items.
Give yourself time to choose the right removalist company to hire. Ask for recommendations and find out how they do things.
The best removalist companies are confident enough to answer all your queries and walk you through the process.
Once you’ve decided on your removalist, discuss their services and confirm as soon as possible to avoid scheduling problems.
2. Pre-pack before your move
Two weeks gives you ample time to double-check if you have packed everything that you need to bring. It’s easy to miss many of your favorite items when you are rushing the packing.
If you’re too busy and frazzled to do it, hire a pre-packing service and let the professionals handle your pre-packing needs.
3. Redirect your mail
Make sure that you have your mails redirected to your new address.
Inform your utility providers for your gas, electricity and water of your move. Call your phone company and pay TV as well, if you have them
You don’t want to have to settle your bills after you’re already living somewhere else.Your utility providers will usually give you advanced meter readings and estimation and will issue your closing bills on the day of your move.
Your removalist plays an important role in your interstate move
The success of your interstate move depends on how well you have prepared for it, and the removalist company you hire will play a huge part in it.
