How to Hire Great Movers and Still Stay Within Your Budget

Whether you are moving across Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane or buying a new home halfway across the country, a professional mover can make your life easier. The DIY approach may be fine for small and short-distance moves, but you cannot exactly ask your friends to follow you from Sydney to Melbourne or Brisbane.

If you have a large and complex move, you are going to need professional help to make sure your possessions arrive in the same condition they left in. But how can you find a quality mover who can do the job with honesty and integrity? Even more importantly, how can you fit that professional move into your overall budget?

There are a few things you can do to trim the cost of those professional moving services. With a few simple changes, you can reduce the high cost of moving and still get the professional service and property protection you need.

As with all things moving, planning ahead could save you a lot of time and money. As moving day approaches, you should create a detailed moving checklist, one that clearly spells out what you need to do and when.

That checklist should start months ahead of the move and continue on to the day the move takes place. Once you have that checklist in place, you can easily see where you stand and how much you still have to do. If you get off track, you can make midstream readjustments to get back on course. Just as important, you can share your checklist with the movers you hire, so they can see at a glance which tasks have been completed and which ones still remain. Creating and following your pre-moving checklist has another important benefit, one that could save you even more time and money.

By taking care of some of the work on your own, you can take a hybrid approach to the professional movers you hire. Instead of having those pros do everything, you can let them focus on the big-ticket items - things like furniture and appliances. These big-ticket items would be very difficult to move on your own, but professional movers handle them every day. At the same time, you can pack up and move those smaller items on your own, reducing the cost of the professional move and making the entire job a lot easier. Packing isn't for everyone though, that is why we offer a full service that includes a packing service

This approach can work well, especially if you are driving to your new location and have a reasonably large vehicle. You may not be able to take everything, but you can make a money-saving dent in your professional moving bill.

No matter which approach you take to your move, it is important to check the movers out carefully. Read the reviews, ask lots of questions, ensure you are across terms and conditions and know exactly what is and is not included in the service.

The more you know, the easier it will be to complete the move without losing your mind or your money.
