If you are ready to embark on your first big relocation, particularly with a house full of heavy and ancient furniture, then it is important to plan your move before-hand.

One thing you need to be clear about is, even if your furniture may seem easy to move around, they look much heavier than it looks. So, you need to assess which pieces of furniture need special attention.

A lot has been told to you about ‘How To’s’ of your relocation and so this time we intend to bring to you something that could ease your mind and help you in coping with the stress that comes complimentary with relocations.

No matter how easy the entire process gets with removalists helping you pack each belonging, the cleaners coming over to help out with that vacate cleaning stuff, having everything ready at the new house, there is still that little thing that goes on in everyone’s mind about the entire process having to be hassle-free.

If you have been living in a particular house for almost over half your age, then there is this attachment that you get where you have to leave your friends and neighbours and move to an entirely different place. While nothing much can be done about that, there is the need to bring about positivity from your end to ensure the life ahead is easy for you.

To make the strenuous task of furniture removal a little bit easier, here are some important tips to follow.

1) Identify the necessary furniture and sell the rest

When planning to relocate, the first thing to do is to identify the necessary furniture. Many make the mistake of packing things they could have avoided. So the smart thing would be to save time and energy in selling off the unwanted furniture sets.

Only take the ones which serve regular usage and then if you need one or two extra chairs or tables; you can always buy new ones later.

2) Plan for the move 4-8 weeks in advance


Last minute relocation plans are always dicey and should be avoided at all costs. Instead; you should plan 4-8 weeks before, segregating the heavier and larger furniture items from the fragile ones. Then accordingly make a list of the type of boxes, tapes, bubble wraps, markers and sticker labels.

To help you with your furniture packing and moving, experts of Richards GC Removals will help you sort out your packaging needs as well as the right truck for safe transfers.

Having so much experience, these experts know how large a van to use. They even use a relocation van calculator to meet your requirements properly. For further details, feel free to speak to our skilled professionals.

3) Ensure all furniture is cleaned

Regardless of whether you intend to move your furniture to your new house or some storage facility; you should ensure that they are cleaned so that all your tables, chairs and other furniture items look perfect your fresh start in your new house.

To protect your expensive furniture sets, our furniture removalists in Gold Coast take extra precautions in the form of plastic sheets and silicon sachets within the plastic covers. This ensures your furniture doesn’t suffer from mildew formation and humidity. 

4) Identify your entry and exit points


You might have bought flat pack furniture and assembled inside your house without the thought of moving at a later date. But since you are faced with this situation, then the smart thing would be to sort out your entry and exit points.

Some furniture can be moved via a sophisticated moving approach, while some would require dismantling into pieces to make it transportable.

Hiring our professional furniture removalists will free you from that headache as well. They will use their field knowledge, and move your furniture in whichever way deems adequate for them, but without causing even a scratch to it.

5) Be very positive about everything


Just as you got rid of the old stuff lying in the attic before you got your belongings packed, the same way you need to get rid of that emotional baggage and understand that life goes on. It is a chance for you to move to a new place and explore better possibilities. A positive mindset makes everything fall into place. You move to a new place with all your belongings, and that is enough to make you feel at home at the new place that you are going to.

6) Get to know the new place better


Even before you move, let the Internet help you out. You could look around for cafes and restaurants, gyms and pubs and anything that you were a regular at in the present house. It could be grabbing your favourite sandwich and a cup of coffee before heading to work, and when you look out for all this in the new locality that you are moving to, life gets easy. You get to feel that vibe of being at the same place with similar amenities to make your life easy without putting in much of an effort to gel into the new place.

7) Ensure that everything is in place before the move


With this we mean getting the house removalists in Gold Coast ready for the move, ensuring the on-time arrival of the cleaners to help out before you hand over the keys to the designated person, keeping your essentials handy keeping all the keys to the furniture and the new house in the right place and ensuring the kids are fine. When all of this is planned well and put to place beforehand, you can rest assured that you wouldn’t have anything to stress about.

8) Bring in that excitement with you


If you as an adult were stressed, it would not have a great impact on the kids when it comes to leaving a house and going to the new one. While you are to develop that excitement for everyone to follow, you would see a change in your approach while making you feel positive about the move while watching everything fall into place.
