7 Ways How to Make Your Move as Smooth as Possible
Moving can be incredibly stressful, but add the added stress of an interstate move and it can feel a whole lot harder! Australia is a big country – and the logistics of an interstate move can feel incredibly daunting.
To ensure you have a successful (and stress-free) move you’ll need a plan. These are our top seven tips for making your interstate move as seamless and achievable as possible.
1. Plan, Plan, Plan
When you’re undertaking an interstate move, a moving checklist is essential! There are so many things you need to keep in mind when embarking on an interstate move and a detailed plan can really make or break the experience for you. Work out everything you need to get done before you begin, detail when each task needs to be done and try to prioritise tasks into an order of most to least important.
2. Consider Downsizing
The most stressful part of an interstate move is making sure all your belongings make it to your new place. If you can lighten the load, you’ll reduce your stress and your overall moving costs. Our calculator can help you determine the overall moving costs but downsizing can help you streamline your load and give you the option to start fresh in your new home!
3. Secure Quotes
When you’re planning your interstate move, it’s best to get the quotes out of the way early! Ensure you’re going with a reputable and reliable moving company that you can trust to get your belongings from A to B safely. The sooner you get your quotes in order the more time you have to incorporate the moving costs into your budget.
4. Consider Moving Insurance
You may want to choose a removalist service like us at No Limits Removalists that has moving insurance. When you’re moving your belongings, especially a distance like an interstate move, having insurance is very important. Protect your belongings over a long haul move and ensure that all your items make it to your new home in one piece!
5. Get Your Utilities & Documents In Order
When you’re moving around the corner, you normally only have to remember to get your utilities – like internet, water and electricity – switched over. When you move to another state, you may have a lot more to consider! You’ll need to remember to update your drivers licence, get your medical information sent to a new clinic and to get schools sorted if you’re moving with little ones.
In addition to all this, you’ll still need to ensure you sort the regular utilities like water, wifi and electricity, too. Go into your interstate move with a plan of attack to make sure you have everything sorted before you hit the road.
6. Pack Early Or Opt For The Professionals
Time is of the essence when it comes to an interstate move, and packing early is crucial! If you’re packing yourself, you’ll want to give yourself heaps of time to get everything in order before you set off. If you’re on the time-poor side, you may want to consider getting the pros to take care of your packing services for you! Our wrapping and packing service means you can stress-less about packing everything up.

7. Stay Positive!
We know moving interstate can be especially draining, but it’s also really exciting! Try to maintain a positive attitude during your move and reduce as much stress as possible, ask for help when you need it, enlist the help of professionals to make the job easier and try to have fun! Moving interstate is an exciting step in your life and you should try to enjoy the experience as much as possible.
