(1) Plan Your Move

Before you finalise any details in relation to your move, you must plan. This involves doing research, consulting family members or colleagues and discussing your intentions with service providers. You will need to determine when you want to move, what you will be moving and how you will go about moving the items. We can help you with all three considerations and provide you with options to help it suit your needs and requirements.

The following list of features will help make your move simple.

  • We can deploy removalists to assist with your move at a time that suits you.
  • We have the equipment to help you move all your possessions, so nothing is left behind.
  • We can help you list all your items, so you can keep track of what you wish to move.
  • We can help move your possessions in stages to help you transition to your new place without any rush.
  • We can provide you with all the packing supplies to help you securely pack your possessions.

(2) Document Your Items And Pack Carefully

Especially when you are moving interstate, you need to document all your possessions. Whether you are moving home or business, creating a catalogue of items is necessary. You might think that you know all your belongings and where you have stored them. However, when it comes to unpacking you will forget and you will spend unnecessary time trying to find a particular item/s which delays the unpacking process. You can avoid the hassle by allowing us to perform this task. Our staff are trained to handle your belongings with care, work to your timelines, prevent damage to your items and securely transport your belongings for your peace of mind.

(3) Pack Well in Advance

Do not underestimate the time it takes to pack. Once you have locked in the date to transport your items, make sure you spend a couple of weeks before the move packing your items. There will be many items to pack and there is no benefit to be gained by rushing the process. When you pack in a rush, you will misplace items and it will make it harder for you to locate your items.

Here are some tips to help you when you pack:

  • Label your boxes or crates so you know where you have placed your items.
  • If you had a draw or cupboard which contained certain items, ensure you place those items in a separate box and do not mix them up.
  • Place similar items in the same box.
  • Make sure you wrap items carefully, so they are not damaged in transit.
  • Do not squeeze items into the box or crate as the box or crate might collapse or damage might occur to the items inside.
  • Tape and secure your boxes so nothing falls out or no foreign substances come in.

(4) Consider Additional Services

When you are packing your belongings, you might require specialist services. At Dawson Moving & Storage, we can help you move your grand piano, fridge, billiards table, large wall painting, chandelier, and more. Our staff are equipped with specialist tools and equipment to safely and correctly dismantle your items for safe transit. Our removalists also have years of experience and are familiar with moving items from various types of properties. Also, if you make a mess after you have packed your items we can also undertake house cleaning services to get your property ready for rental, sale or as a spare/holiday home.

(5) Arrange Insurance

It is wise to obtain insurance to ensure your belongings are protected during transit. We can help arrange appropriate and adequate insurance cover that will suit your needs. We partner with reputable insurance companies to give our customers reasonable insurance products at affordable prices.

(6) Do You Require Temporary Secure Storage?

After you have planned your move and things do not go to plan, we can help you temporarily store your possessions in secure storage. We understand that circumstances might change which may require you to move into temporary accommodation because you cannot move into your new place as scheduled. To ensure your belonging are not left behind, we can safely transit your possessions to secure storage while you make changes to your plans.

(7) Organise Your Transportation To Your New Place

It is important that you do not forget about organising transport for yourself, your family, your pets and/or your friends/colleagues. With an interstate move from Melbourne to Canberra, you might want to consider car, bus or plane travel. You may need to make a few trips up and down to help you finalise your move. Ensure that you have booked appropriate transportation, so you can move everybody in comfort without any delays.

(8) Ensure Utilities, Essential Services and Permits Are Active

Before you move into your new place, remember to connect utilities and essential services (such as water, gas, electricity, telephone connection, etc.) and activate any permits (i.e. for driving, pets, etc.). If your new place has been purchased or recently built, it is also wise to inspect your new property before you move into it. This is to ensure your transition is smooth without any delays or unexpected costs.

(9) Be Prepared To Unpack

At your destination, you will need to factor in the time to unpack your possessions. If you have to start working or sending kids to school, remember to ensure you plan for time to unpack. In addition to other tasks you need to complete, unpacking your possessions does take a lot of time and rushing the process will only make it difficult to find your belongings.

At Dawson Moving & Storage, we can help you unpack, reassemble and place your items in accordance with your instructions. For delicate items and bulky items, we have special tools and equipment to ensure your possessions are correctly unpacked, so they can be placed wherever you like in your new home or business. We can help you move things up floors, in tight spaces and carry items over long distances to help your move everything without delay.

(10) Make Sure Everything Has Moved Safely

After you have unpacked all items, make sure you check everything. It can be difficult to undertake a complete assessment. However, it is important to ensure nothing is missing or damaged. This is to ensure you discuss any concerns with your removalist in a timely manner or submit any insurance claims without delay. We understand moving is difficult, and we try our best to help you following the move to ensure you transition peacefully without any delays or unexpected costs.
