Self Storage Of Caloundra Moving & Packing Tips
So you’ve decided to make the move in or out of your Sunshine Coast home, and you're not exactly sure where to start. On top of the stress of having to pack all your belongings, you also have to decide what goes into storage, what to get rid of, and how you will be getting all your things to your new home. These can be daunting and overwhelming tasks. But they don’t have to be! Moving can be stressful, but if you have a plan and stick to it, the process can be a smooth one. Here are some household packing and moving tips to help you get through your big move.
Make A List
Before you start packing and getting all your things together, make a list. What are you keeping? What are you getting rid of? What will go to storage? Write down what you’re going to be packing and place a number or label on each box you have that corresponds with the list. This way, if you misplace anything or are trying to figure out which boxes have certain things in them, you can refer to your list. This will also help you keep your things together. Refer to the list and the labels on the boxes if you’re looking for something specific or figuring out which boxes go to certain rooms.
Supplies, Supplies, Supplies
You can never be too prepared to move, and you can never have too many boxes. It’s very likely that if you’re not prepared, you will run out of boxes. So make sure that you have more boxes than you think you might actually need, and don’t forget to keep other supplies on hand - like tape and marking pens.

Tips For Working With Movers
If you’ve hired professional movers to help with the move, make sure you’re on the same page with them. Give them any necessary information that will make the move easier. This will make the process flow as smoothly as possible. Here are some other tips when working with professional movers:
Two Months Before The Move
Go through all the rooms in your house and decide what you want to keep and what you will be getting rid of. Will any items require any special packing?
Do your research on moving companies at least two months before the move. If you have kids, organise their school, dental and medical records and be sure to arrange to transfer their records to their new school and medical practitioners.
Six Weeks Before The Move
Now that you’ve learned the basics of the do’s and don’ts of moving, you’re ready for your big move. Be sure to be well prepared, and don’t leave anything to the last minute. Minimise your stress by preparing, packing and doing your research with moving companies. Prepare what you will be keeping, getting rid of, and moving to storage. Leave your old home on good terms and enter your new one happy and stress free!
