It’s as much of a fact as gravity… moving is the most stressful activity you are likely to do. Add an interstate relocation into the mix and it can seem almost impossible.

Your interstate moving checklist

A lot of people think packing is the start of your move, but there is some groundwork you can do before this to help make your move easier and more efficient. So, let’s start at the beginning:

  • Do a thorough audit

Boring as it is, make sure you do a thorough audit of all of your possessions and get rid of what you don’t need. There is no point wasting money on moving things that you don’t need and are likely to throw out as soon as you get to your new place.

Also identify your fragile items or items in your home that need special care. Let your removalist know your special requirements are relating to these.

  • Do you need storage?

Next Level Removalists can help with storage options and removal of your furniture or items to your storage unit.

  • Calculate how much furniture you have

Once you are confident you are moving only the absolute essentials, do an accurate volume estimate of your furniture and large items. To get the most accurate view of your household items, use our furniture calculator.

  • Do you need a container to move your home interstate?

If convenience is your number one concern, container removals for interstate moves may be for you. Next Level Removals are the experts in container removals.

  • Engage your removalist

Next Level Removals are your trusted moving service for Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane removals.

For a quick removal quote, you will need to provide your removalist with the number of rooms in your home. Your more accurate estimate from the furniture calculator will help at this point also.

  • Order your removal boxes

Next Level Removalists provide you premium boxes, free of charge. We have a full range of large item boxes, small item boxes, fragile item boxes and porta robes.

  • Start packing

You can do it yourself, or you can outsource it. If you are choosing to outsource your packing, Next Level Removals have a specialised packing team that can help with both your packing, and your unpacking at the other end. So convenient!

  • Organise your services at the other end

Remember that your electricity, gas and internet services won’t follow you automatically, so make sure you remember to connect them in time for your arrival. Next Level Removalists can do this for you. Just ask our friendly team.

And most of all… Enjoy your new home!
