Moving into a new home is exciting, however it can be extremely daunting if you don’t know where to start!

So if you are prepared before moving day – it will be a breeze!

To assist you in navigating the ins and outs of the moving process, check out our handy checklist below to assist you with preparing the contents of your home for the removalist’s on the day.


  • Dismantle your furniture If you’ve got large or bulky furniture to be moved dismantle them if possible prior to the removalist’s arrival to save money and time. Removing drawers or taping shut, unscrewing bed bolts or disassembling shelves for example are all things you can do ahead of time to ensure a smooth moving process.

  • Order packing materials heading into the packing process underprepared can be stressful and time consuming. Before putting things in boxes make sure you have all the essentials handy that you need to protect your belongings like packing paper, fragile tape, bubble wrap or packing peanuts. Other things you’ll need are different size boxes to hold different loads, markers and labels, and even old towels or blankets are handy to fill in gaps in boxes.

  • Be strategic in your packing make life easier for yourself and the removalist’s by thinking carefully about how your going to pack each box. Avoid packing heavy items in large boxes to make it easier to lift pack small boxes with heavy items and large boxes with lighter items.

  • Label your boxes Properly labeling your boxes saves your removalist’s a lot of time at the other end and saves time which saves you money. Clearly mark which room each box belongs to on the top and sides of the box to be simply offloaded to the corresponding room. Even colour coding the boxes can be helpful for easy navigation.
