How To Declutter Your Home Before Moving

One of the best tips any removalists will give you if you are in the process of planning on moving home is to use it as an opportunity to declutter. Years of hoarding, stashing, and keeping stuff, ‘just in case’, have possibly meant that up to 30 or 40% of the items currently in your home, do not need to move with you to your new one.

The benefits of decluttering include the obvious one that you will have fewer items that need to packed and moved by your removalists, and therefore the costs should be lower – if you’re in Sydney, check out Sticking with the practicalities of the actual move, it will also mean fewer boxes that have to be unpacked at the other end, and thus you can have your new home organised much quicker.

On a more personal level, it will mean that everyone in your home has more storage for the things they are keeping than they would otherwise have, and it should also make finding things once everything is unpacked, easier too.

So, let us look at how you should declutter, and depending on your family and their ages, whilst you should encourage everyone to declutter their own items, do not be too draconian about it. If a younger child wants to keep their broken toy racing car that they love playing with, then let them. If a teenager has clothes they insist that they will still wear, then do not insist right back that they should throw them out.



Top Things to Consider When Moving Your Business

If you’re looking at relocating your office, there are some pretty important things to keep in mind. Otherwise, you will almost certainly run into problems, which can impact your normal business operations and your income, among other things.

At Brilliance Removalists Perth we’ve been working in the industry for years, and we’ve developed a reputation as one of the region’s leading business removalists. Drawing on this reputation, we’ve developed the following list of the top things to consider when moving your business.

  1. The Cost of Moving

Although it’s probably not the first thing that pops into your head, it’s actually extremely important to consider the cost of moving before making any major commitments. Think about:

  • The potentially higher rent and other costs associated with your new location.
  • The cost of packing and moving your office.
  • The cost of unpacking and setting everything back up, especially if you require specialist IT services or similar.
  • The lost income caused by downtime during the move.

Fortunately, you can minimise the income lost through downtime by working with a professional relocation company like us at Brilliance Removalists Perth.

It’s absolutely essential to make sure you plan in advance if you want your office relocation to go smoothly. Choose a professional removalist, work with them to develop a detailed moving plan, and make sure you stick to it.

Doing this will allow you to identify and prioritise the most important equipment to move first. This will reduce the amount of time your business isn’t running for, and should reduce any negative impacts on your income and/or customers.



Why Should I Use a Professional Removalist?

A lot of people move house on their own, but this isn’t always a good idea. Moving can be time consuming and stressful, but using professional removalists can help.

Ultimately, there are numerous benefits associated with using a professional removalist. And, although you might not realise it, doing so can even save you money in the long run.

In the rest of this article we’ve outlined a few reasons why we believe it’s worth using professional removal services like those we offer at Brilliance Removalists Perth.

Using a Professional Removalist Will Reduce Your Stress

Fortunately, our team at Brilliance Removalists is here to help keep your mind healthy and prevent you from going crazy with the stress. We offer a wide range of professional removal services, and can help you with everything from packing and getting organised to unpacking and setting up your new home.



Moving All Creatures Great and Small

Moving with Pets

Moving Pets

The animals in your home are going to be affected by your relocation as well as family members. Dogs are particularly tuned into the emotions of their owner, and all the hustle and bustle of preparing for the removalists will have them fretting days before it happens. Cats may appear to be cool, calm, collected, and their usual distant self, but they will be stressed and a bit confused as you prepare to move.

Stay Close

Cats and dogs are quite sensitive to any changes in their environment and may even be worried in an animal sort of way that you are abandoning them. It’s a good idea to keep them with you at the old property for as long as you can so that you don’t leave them unattended in an unfamiliar place for long. Kindness, patience and some understanding will help them overcome any fright or nervousness about what is happening around them.



What Not to Pack When Moving

What Not To Pack

Wait! Is there really anything to not pack when you are moving? Naturally, you need to pack everything, but some things are better left off the furniture truck.

These can go into the boot of the car so you will have them right at hand when you arrive. When you consider that this will usually be quite late in the day and you’ll all be tired and hungry, two things to not pack for the truck are food and bedding.

Food and utensils

On the day of the move, you will need to be up early to get those last minute things packed. You’ll have the crockery and cutlery that you left out for last minute use, the things from the refrigerator and your breakfast cereals. These can all go in the car so you will have them handy for the next morning – the first morning in your new home. You won’t have had time to unpack much by then, so having food and utensils handy will be a boon.



Long Distance versus Local Move (things to consider)

Local and interstate removalists

When is a move not a move? If you’re removals are to another nearby home, that’s a simple move. If you’re removalist is taking you somewhere that’s about an 8 hour drive away, or move to another state, that’s almost a paradigm shift! So, not all moves are the same. Here are a few things to think about when you are planning that relocation.


If the move is to a house still in the same neighbourhood and you can still visit friends frequently, or when you come to work, a change of address will not be necessary if you have a post office box. Some mail senders may have to be notified if they have to send letters to your home address, that is street and number. Of course, if you have not got a PO Box, then you will still have to notify address change to utilities, banks and government departments.

Moving to another city? Well, everything needs to be changed. Banking should be okay if you do it online.



Moving House Tips to Make Your Relocation Less Stressful

Moving House Tips

Packing is anything but pleasant and is the last thing anyone wants to do. The entire process can be a complete nightmare from boxing your belongings to actually getting them transported to the right location. Whether you are hiring professional removal of services or doing everything yourself, the following are five moving house tips to help with your relocation.

1. Start Early

This one is obvious but is worth mentioning. Starting as early as possible with the relocation gives you time to start organising and making the necessary preparations. This is also a great time to make a week by week checklist to keep you on track.

Waiting until the last moment will definitely cost you a significance of stress. Most people tend to underestimate how much effort it takes to relocate to another property which is why it is so important to start immediately.
