Moving is never easy and while hiring an excellent removalist can ease the burden, you need to take some steps to prepare as well. Many of our clients here at We Move Melbourne ask our advice for a smooth, stress-free move. Unfortunately, a move is a big transition so it’s never completely stress-free but we help wherever we can and here are some moving tips in Melbourne that can ease the burden.
Hire a Reliable Mover
We don’t just say this because we offer removal services and are considered reliable. Our previous clients have expressed just how stressful dealing with an unreliable removalist can be. A good removalist will:
Help you schedule the move according to your convenience.
Communicate well and always be there to answer your calls.
Provide tracking facilities and keep you updated of the progress.
These are just some of the services a good removalist should provide to ease the burden off of your shoulders, which is why you should hire someone reliable.
Removalists will handle furniture, clothes, and other such items. However, you need to carry some essential items with you; these items shouldn’t be handed over to your removalist:
Money and cards; It’s always good to have some cash on hand.
Valuable jewellery, watches, and other personal items.
Essential toiletries like dental hygiene products, shower items, personal hygiene products, etc.
All prescription medication along with your prescriptions.
Laptops, phones, tablets, iPods, and other such devices that you might need access to immediately. (Don’t forget the chargers!)
Paperwork including your driver’s license, identification, insurance, school documents, work documents, and medical documents.
A change of clothes in case you’re in no mood to unpack after the move.
You’ll find this in almost all articles for moving tips in Melbourne because that’s how important this list is. Your move can be very stressful if you don’t have all your essentials at hand.
The Day Before the Move
We’ve observed that our clients are very anxious during the day before their move so it’s important to take a deep breath and relax for a bit.
Make sure you and your family have a healthy, substantial meal. This is especially important if you have children. It can be tempting to just order pizza or burger, but it’s wiser to stick with non-greasy meals that aren’t likely to make your children ill during the move.
Communicate with your removalist regularly to confirm their arrival time.
Visit your neighbours and hand out your forwarding address, phone numbers, and say your goodbyes.
Sleep in early so you wake up early enough to arrange things and have a healthy breakfast.
Make sure your children have something to entertain them during the move.
Feel free to contact us at We Move Melbourne if you have any questions or want to book our services. You can fill in our web form, call our number, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would just like to say a BIG THANK YOU, to John and Alex from We Move removals, you guys went above and beyond to help me pack up and move. After what started as a disastrous morning by the other removalist I had previously booked in and they did a NO SHOW. I can not thank Samantha enough, for taking her time to calm me down (I was quite frantic at this stage) and book me in at such short notice. You made sure I was ok thru out the day by following up with me and the boys. I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know, and will use you over and over again .

Great team, a big thank you to Alex and Sam, From we Move Melbourne
Our move was very difficult with a steep driveway and very heavy furniture.
These men worked effortlessly until the job was done.
We are moving office soon and will book you again.
