Your Moving House Checklist

Moving house is a big task – there’s a lot to think about and organise. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. Use our moving checklist to make sure you’ve got everything covered, from booking a removals company and buying enough moving storage boxes to forwarding your post.

Before moving house, forward your post to your new address.

Forward your post

Remember to forward your post to your new address – you don’t want your mail getting lost in the move. Australia Post allows you to do this online or at your local post office. You can currently choose to redirect your mail for anything between 1, 3, 6 or 12 months, depending on your needs.

Consider moving house storage

If you need some extra space during the move, our storage units can help. We have a range of sizes to choose from, so you can store everything from boxes of belongings to furniture. And our prices are very competitive – give our experts a call!

Pack your things

Start packing up your things well in advance of the move. You’ll need boxes, packing tape and bubble wrap to protect your belongings. It’s a good idea to label each box with what’s inside and which room it needs to go in at your new place.

Before moving house, clean it thoroughly.

Clean the house

Don’t forget to give your old place a good clean before you leave. If you are renting this will help you get your bond back from your landlord, or it will put the person who bought your place in a good mood if you’re selling.

Change your address

Update your address with all the important people and organisations – your bank, doctor, school, work, etc. This will help make sure you don’t miss any important mail or appointments. It’s also a requirement to inform the drivers licence authority in your state or territory of your change of address.

Book a removals company to help with moving house.

Book a removals company

One of the first things you need to do when moving house is book a removals company. They’ll be able to give you an idea of how much stuff you need to move, and what size van or truck you’ll need. It’s a good idea to get a few quotes from different companies to compare prices.

At Wilson Storage, we can take care of the whole process for you, from pack to storing, removal and delivery to your new home. Just speak to our experts today.
