Moving Tips

Have you already finalised your moving day? Booking in advance is certainly a wise decision, but that does not mean you can just relax till the day finally arrives. There is still a lot to do on your behalf. And, especially on the moving day, you have to give your best performance.

So, before you get zoned out, we thought of giving you a glimpse of the day. Well, of course, the experience will differ depending on the stress level one can really manage. Some people just lose their calm due to overtly stressing on any matter. You surely don’t want to get counted among those people.

For that, you need to follow our guidelines below. Find out how you can actually avoid common ‘Moving Day’ mistakes that most people make, with this essential moving checklist.

Things You Should Do on Moving Day

Things to do on moving Day

  • Before the movers come in, make sure you have the moving boxes adequately prepared and labelled. Our movers will be there to help you at every step on your moving day but if you forget to label your moving boxes, you yourself might forget which boxes contain fragile goods. Follow these tips safely packing fragile items when moving house for more details.
  • Keep a moving special bag aside. You can never assume how much time it will actually take to finish up the moving process. You might not get the time for unpacking on the very day. That’s why keeping an essential bag or survival kit with all the necessary things ready will be a must thing to do.
  • Keep the floors dry, and the access points open to make sure the movers don’t have to face any obstacle, especially, when they are shifting big furniture like your bed or couch. Also, keeping the floor wet may lead to unpleasant accidents that you certainly did not expect to happen.

Thing You Should Avoid Doing on your Moving Day

Things not to do on moving days

For things to avoid, let’s give you an on-point list to follow. Make a comprehensive plan for a smooth house removal by keeping these things at bay.

  • Don’t Stress
  • Don’t forget to arrange for parking
  • Don’t forget to let the property owner know that it is your moving day.
  • Don’t keep your pets (cats or dogs) in your house on a moving day
  • Don’t skip your sleep just the night before the moving day
  • Don’t keep anything unpacked for the moving day
  • Don’t panic if you are not finding anything important at that exact moment. Wait for us to shift and then concentrate on searching the missing item.
  • Don’t keep your car keys or house keys loose out there
  • Don’t keep the essential documents scattered everywhere
  • Don’t forget to save some cash in hand on a moving day.

I was deeply impressed by Pat's thorough & kind communication style when I made some inquiries. I had never experienced such friendly & informative responses from any other removalist companies I contacted before. On the day, Pat's guys arrived right on time. Te & the team did an amazing job for me. They were all very courteous and brilliantly fast & smart. I have hired many removalists before and experienced them stretching out time, damaging my furniture, and stopping work & smoking cigarettes for ages when I wasn't on-site. Pat's guys Te & the team worked incredibly hard and got the job done very well in half the time other companies' guys would have. I can highly recommend Richards Removals. Richards would tremendously reduce the enormous stress & hassle of your relocating. Pat, Te & the team, thank you very much!!

I would highly recommend using Richards, they moved me from my home into a storage unit. The two young men completed the move without an issue and in very efficient time. Ash and Jake were very personable and polite. I am using Richards again to move from the storage unit to the new house and have requested these two young gentlemen do the move. I was asked by a neighbour could I recommend someone for their move in January so I of course said Richards.
