So, you have hired Sydney / Canberra furniture Movers to streamline your moving. You are done with the packing and transportation. Now what? Moving is not a one-day job. You can’t just call the Brisbane to Melbourne removalists, pack all the items, and have them transported to your new home in one day. It is going to take weeks to settle in a new place and get back to your normal routine.

Here are a few tips that will help make your move easier.

1. Find Removalists in Melbourne

If you want a stress-free and smooth unpacking experience in a new place, hire removalists in Melbourne. They will give you tips for packing and moving your stuff safely to your new place. This will make unpacking a lot easier after moving.

2. Start with Unpacking

Do not start with cleaning, as your house will become a mess again when you unpack. So, always unpack first.

Now, where do you start? Go for the essentials - the items you need for daily use. You only need bed linen, toiletries, and a towel on your first day. So, unpack the boxes that have comfy clothes, toilet items, and kitchenware. You don’t need to unpack everything at once.

It is easier to unpack when you have organized your items properly at the time of packing with a clear label on each box. Take one box at a time, get your stuff, and organize them in your new home. That’s how the packing and unpacking should be done.

3. Clean Your House

It’s okay if it takes you a week for unpacking your house items. But, once you are done unpacking and organizing everything, give your new place a good wash.

Start with vacuuming and wash your floors with warm and soapy water. . If you don’t have the energy to clean your house after days of unpacking, hire a house cleaning service. 

4. Change the Locks and Security Systems

The previous tenants or the landlord of your new house (if it’s a rental home) probably have keys to your entrance doors. As soon as you move in, call a locksmith and have your locks and other security tools replaced. If you have too many locks to be replaced, consider getting deadbolts instead. They offer the highest standards of security while preserving the look of your house.

5. Baby-proof Your House

If you are moving into a new home with a toddler, baby-proof the entire place within the first week of the move. For those with a baby or pet, it’s better to unpack boxes that have dangerous items first. Cover the electrical outlets and install small gates or any kind of barrier near the stairs to keep your baby safe.

6. Schedule an Inspection

You must have already done this step before moving, but a post-moving house inspection is totally worth your time and money. Get the roofs, plumbing, floors, electrical units, and other places checked thoroughly. This way, you can get peace of mind knowing that your new home is safe for you and your family.
