A report out today from Brilliance Removalists Perth, says that the 5 most stressful things in life include making a speech in public, and at number three? Moving house! If it’s your first time move, then the stress is tenfold. The amount of organisation, the strain emotionally, and just imagining all the new things you have to adapt to in your new home are the main drivers of stress.
If you are moving for the first time it’s almost certain that you didn’t think to organise your removalist service early, or worked out how you will pack all your gear correctly.
The tip is to get quotes from removalist companies well before you are due to move…allow at least a week to avoid panic. Don’t start packing the day before the removalist arrives either. Stuff you know you won’t use over the next couple of weeks should be packed in boxes and labelled well before moving day.
Labelling is going to save you a lot of time at the other end when you start looking for certain items.
You are in your new house and it’s chaos. You can’t find the things you want because they are all packed in plain boxes, no labels. Does this sound like a situation you want to be in? Definitely not. The smart thing to do is to label your boxes while you are packing.
