  • Moving House: the big day. How to do it efficiently
    is long distance or you require extra muscle power they are up for the job The peace of mind in knowing you have the right vehicle equipment and manpower far outweighs any possible savings accrued by trying to do the job with inexperienced friends and family Your back will thank you Boxes are only part of the equation When it comes to the heavy stuff it s important to keep removalists in the loop They have the right equipment for moving heavy pianos overweight refrigerators and any other big items and providing an accurate appraisal of your belongings will help the mover give you the right cost estimate for the job At this stage you should also inform them of any access difficulties at your present of future home Considerations include overhanging trees parking restrictions narrow staircases and small elevators Keep it together There are several strategies to keep in mind when boxing your belongings Heavy items such as books should be packed in smaller boxes while lightweight and bulky items such as bedding comforters and pillows can go in larger boxes Another sensible idea is to pack accessories with their device For example extension cords with appliances and brackets with shelving You might even have a bits and pieces box with cables screws remotes connectors and other odds and ends all packaged in individual bags and containers for easy identification when you are ready to unpack and re assemble at your new address Start packing ahead of time The tendency will be to leave packing to the last minute so everything is still available for use at your present home However packing takes much longer than most people realise and can lead to delays and added expense or heartache A better strategy is to get on with packing things you don t require These boxes can be placed conveniently aside so you can continue with your orderly life and you can always leave them open during the interim until moving day gets closer In any case it s a good opportunity to clear out clutter dispose of things you don t need and maybe even host a garage sale to offset moving costs Unwanted belongings can also be given away to family and friends or donated to a charity shop Cleaning supplies and materials There is invariably quite a lot of cleaning to do when moving house Once you start to shift furniture and clear cupboards you will discover a whole world of dust and grime that had been hiding behind the scenes By commencing packing early you will be able to get the cleaning phase underway in stages rather than taking on the monumental task all in one go Keep your cleaning kit and materials aside from things that you are packing You will need a range of different products and materials for cleaning the oven windows tiles cupboards and more Unwanted clothing can be used as cleaning rags so don t pack or give everything away While

  • Will Moving House Upset My Dog
    Sydney Moving are efficient and considerate your dog might still feel intimidated by the radical change taking place in their environment Some people prefer to keep their dog away from the disturbance by having friends or family do a little pet sitting for a day or two Every dog is different and some will actually enjoy the excitement Others might be OK if they are kept temporarily inside a room with a comfortable blanket and some nibbles Remember to put a do not enter sign on the door As much as possible stick to feeding and walking routines and give your dog plenty of reassurance Your pet will feel less stressed if you are not overly anxious If possible refrain from packing your dog s bedding toys and bowls until late in the moving preparation Familiarity is important to pets and although you want everything to feel brand new at your new address it s not a good idea to wash dog blankets until after you settle in Your dog will appreciate familiar smells Bring along some of your dog s usual treats The occasional snack along the way will provide distraction and create further familiarity Consider packing some of your dog s usual food just in case it s not available in the new area Give your dog plenty of attention once you arrive Spending a little time together will reassure your pet that everything is fine Settling in at the new home Moving to a new home is an exciting time and there will be a lot to do and much to explore However your dog should be introduced over time so it is not too exciting or overwhelming Keep your dog mostly indoors for the first couple of days and remember to use a lead if venturing
