June 3, 2016 0Blog

When you are looking to relocate from Perth to another state, you have a lot on your mind so it is a good idea to engage the services of an interstate removals firm early on and get them working on your behalf from the outset. Ask the firm to provide references and obtain a price quote in advance.

To make your removal date run smoothly with as little stress as possible, advance planning is the key. Make a list and work backward from your removal date to ensure you don’t miss anything.

Prepare Your Furniture and Possessions

Furniture removals interstate can be convenient. This might be a good time to take a close look at your household goods and determine if you can do without some of them in your new home.

PROFESSIONAL PACKING

Consider having your removalist pack your possessions for you, especially fine products and other breakables. If you plan to pack clothing and some or all of your possessions yourself, the removal company can provide you with new cartons and packing materials. Be sure to take extra care to protect heirlooms, antiques and the like.

Advise Authorities

Moving Day
