Oops! Don’t Forget These Things When Moving House

When you’re moving house, you have hundreds of little things to remember. Even if you write the best to-do lists in the world, there’s loads of room for “Oops!” moments. If you’re moving to Hobart, you’re feeling super-excited despite the upcoming move. Let’s help you to reduce your moving-day stress.

Start Packing Early So You Can Take It Easy

There are tons of things that you really don’t need every single day. Some of them are worth getting rid of, others are treasured possessions you want to take along. Avoid a last-minute moving week rush by starting your packing as soon as you know for sure you’re moving.

Things like book collections, ornaments, out-of-season clothes, and your best crockery are all good candidates for early packing. You now also have time to sell up or give away the things you don’t really want any more.

Let the Grocery Cupboard Get Emptier

It’s time to use up as many of your groceries as possible. Look for ways to use up stored items in your grocery cupboard – you might end up with some creative culinary adventures! When you shop, think short-term and only get what you need right now. You can always stock up again when you arrive in Hobart.

Don’t Forget to Label or Colour-Code Your Boxes

When you’ve just moved to Hobart, you’ll want to unpack the basics first. If you have loads of time, you can write down what’s in each box and label it. Otherwise, you can just label boxes with general category names or try our easy colour-coding tip. Either way, it won’t be a lucky dip when you arrive and need to find the kettle for that first cup of coffee!

Sort Out a Few Items for the First Days and Pack Them Together

On the subject of things you’ll want as soon as you arrive in Hobart, remember to make a mixed pack of all the basics you’ll need during the first few days. It’s just like going on holiday! Pack up a few simple items so that you can have necessities and a few creature comforts handy the minute you arrive. Now you can start making yourself at home as soon as you arrive.

Be Kind to the Environment

Even though newspapers and even bubble wrap are recyclable, it’s kinder to the environment when you reduce waste. Throws, tablecloths, dishtowels, linen and the like are great for wrapping delicate items that need a little extra protection – and you’ll have less rubbish to dispose of after unpacking.

Be Sure Services Will be Available When You Arrive

Imagine arriving at your new home in Hobart only to discover that the electricity isn’t on! With Baxton to take care of you, that won’t happen. But if you’re renting privately or have just bought the property you’re moving to, you need to be sure that basic services are in working order before you arrive.

Moving to Hobart? Cut the Stress, Take Your Time, Enjoy the Ride

Anyone who has done their fair share of moving will know how stressful it can be – if you aren’t well-prepared. Things may take a few weeks to get done if you pace yourself, but you won’t have the last- minute, flustered rush that leaves you feeling flustered and worn-out on the day. Turn moving to Hobart into an experience that’s memorable for all the right reasons. Baxton Property Management will ensure that your new home is ready for you – all you have to do is ensure that you’re ready for your new home.
