Moving Tips
Planning should begin several weeks before the actual day of the move:
  1. Determine the prefferred day of the move - This will also depend on availability of the removal company.
  2. Review what items will be moved and which will be left behind, sold or thrown away.
  3. Begin by clearing all items to be sold or disposed - This will allow you to see exactly what needs to be moved.
  4. List an inventory of items to be moved by room - This will be for your own record, obtaining quotes from the removal company and for insurance purposes. For DIY movers, this will also assist in determing what type and size of vehicle will be rquired. 
  5. Should you be a DIY packer, you will need to estimate the packaging materials required i.e. boxes, cushioning, tape etc. 
  6. Obtain at least 3 quotations from movers and make your booking early.  
 
 


DIY Packing & Moving
Most removal companies will charge extra for packing and although hard work, costs can be reduced if done by yourself. DIY packing requires reviewing your inventory list and estimating your packaging material needs. It's best to pack room by room, detailing both the contents of the box and location clearly on the outside i.e. "Tools/Garage". This makes unpacking much easier by offloading the boxes in the correct location and then being able to prioritize unpacking.   
 
Although we recommend DIY Packing, we must stress that DIY Moving can be exhauasting and risky. We suggest you only consider this if you do not have much furniture and no large and/or heavy items. When comparing costs, make sure you include all expenses such as vehicle hire, fuel, temporary labour, lunch etc. You will also need to consider the risk of breakages and injury to yourself, a friend or tempoary labour - This could result in damages and/or medical expenses far exceeding the cost of a removal company.
 
Moving Pot Plants
Drain all excess water from the pot, line a suitable sized box with a plastic sheet or bin liner and place the pot plant inside. Provided their is sufficient space and depending on weight (taking the soil into account), you can place more than one plant in the box by ensuring you keep the pots apart using suitable cushioning material. Do not close the box so that the movers can see there are plants inside and will treat with care and avoid stacking.
