Whether you are moving to a big house in the suburbs or relocating to a smaller place because the kids have moved out, you will need to consider exactly how you are going to get your things from A to B. The most important thing is, of course, to transport all of your prized possessions to your new home in one piece but there are a few steps you can take to substantially improve your moving house process. Choosing the right moving method could be the difference between a chaotic, lengthy relocation process or a seamless transition to your new home.
Option 1: Do it yourself
There is, of course, the option of taking care of the whole ordeal yourself. And by yourself, we mean contracting your hulky entourage of friends who will willingly sacrifice their Saturday to drive to and from your ex-residence to your new abode with your belongings packed tightly into their boots. If said hulky entourage is at your disposal, then this could be a viable option for moving house. DIY moving day can be pretty fun – just make sure you are on top of direction at the receiving end to ensure all your furniture is heavy-lifted into the right room! Of course, the risk your run with this option is that you will likely be called upon to repay the favour some day down the track.
Option 2: Rent a van
If you’re keen to get stuck in with the removal process but don’t quite have the means to do so, Wilson Storage are here to help. We stock a full range of packing boxes and packaging supplies including bubble wrap, tape, butchers paper and furniture protection covers to help your pack like a pro. And when you’re ready to go, you can rent a Wilson Storage moving van that comes with trolleys and tie-down ropes to transport your expertly packed up belongings, well, expertly!
If you are downsizing, Wilson Storage also offers convenient self storage space at various locations around Melbourne. This will enable you to store belongings seasonally or long-term. And if you are planning to fix up a room in your new house, it can be a handy solution for keeping your new home clutter-free until renovations are done.
Option 3: Leave it to the experts
This option is for those who prefer to, well, not lift a finger. By using a removals company like Master Relocations, Wilson Storage’s preferred mover, you can kick back with a cup of tea and leave all the packing, moving and unpacking to the professionals. Master Relocations provides all packing materials to ensure your goods are kept in pristine condition during the move, so that’s one more thing you don’t have to worry about. And if you have big furniture pieces such as wardrobes, bookshelves or perhaps a grand piano, this is definitely the easiest route. We like to call this option DNY – do nothing yourself – and trust us, it feels good.
So, will you rise to the occasion and get out your label maker and protein shakes or simply take the stress out of moving and get the trusty experts to take care of it all for you – no judgement here, we would choose the latter option, too.
