Moving home can be quite difficult. There are a lot of things that can go wrong and even if they go right, there is a lot that needs to be done. Thankfully, there are some ways to make the process easier. Here are some tips to make your home move easier.

Plan everything

Planning is the best way to make any task easier. By writing a detailed plan you ensure that everything gets done on time and that it gets done properly. A good plan should include every task that needs to be done, when it should be done, and who will be doing it. You will want to have a physical copy of your plan so that you can mark off tasks as they are done. This will show you if anything is forgotten.

Find a good moving company

There are hundreds if not thousands of moving companies all across Australia; Each of these companies will have different prices, different qualities of service, and strengths. Because of this, you must choose the right one for you. This requires you to figure out what you need from a company and then do some research. Moving Select is a great place to look if you want to compare quotes from different moving companies.


Properly labelling all of your boxes will make your life easier later down the line. You want every box to be labelled with its contents and the room it belongs in. For any fragile items, you will want to clearly mark them as fragile, as well as indicating which way up the box needs to go. This is to ensure that the box is handled carefully. Labelling the contents and room will make a world of difference when unloading and unpacking. The movers can unload all of the boxes into the right room and you can unpack everything into the right place.

Start early

As with any task, the earlier you start, the less work you have to do at a time. Depending on when you start preparing to move home, the process can either be an easy few months or a stress-filled few days. Just make sure not to do anything too early. With packing, for example, you don't want to pack anything you know that you still need. Having to go through boxes every time you need something isn't worth it.


Before moving home is the best time to sort all of your belongings and get rid of your junk. This may seem like extra unnecessary work, but it will make the rest of your move easier. Go through everything you own and look for anything that you no longer need. After this, figure out if the item would still be useful to someone else. If it is useful, you can either sell it or donate it to a charity shop; If it isn't you can throw it away.
