Clearing your junk
One of the biggest things that you can get done while you move is clearing out your junk. This has various benefits, both for your move and in general. Firstly, clearing your junk reduces clutter which can be useful as it will free up more space. This not only means that you will be able to fit in more things into your move that aren't junk. It also means that things will be less crowded and easier to get to. Secondly, it clears up space in the moving truck. This could potentially save you money as you may be able to get a cheaper option for your move by reducing the amount of things that you have to transport. Lastly, this means less things that you will have to carry, move and unpack when you move home. This means that you can save both time and energy during your move.
Cleaning your car
Some states in Australia, such as Western Australia, will require you to have your car properly cleaned. This is due to things such as quarantines to protect the native wildlife and this is particularly important for interstate moves. Because of this, cleaning your car or removals vehicle becomes an important part of your move. If you own a car, this is something that you are going to want to do at some point anyway. This makes moving a good opportunity to clean your car.
Organising your belongings
As well as clearing out all of your junk, you may also want to sort your belongings. When you live in a place for long enough, your belongings tend to accumulate. Occasionally, when putting something away, you will be too lazy to put something away in the right place. Over time, things that are put away in the wrong place will build up. This results in you eventually having a lot of your belongings in the wrong place. This can be problematic, as having your belongings disorganized can make it hard to find things when you need them.
When you are packing for your move, you will want to organise the boxes based on where you are going to put things. This presents a great opportunity to move things that may be in the wrong place, into the correct box. This will mean that when you eventually move into the new home, all of your belongings will be in the correct place and easy to find.
