Around two weeks before moving day, you can start packing.
Pack non-essential items and clothing – nothing you’ll need in the next two weeks! Remember to label boxes and packages to make unpacking easier later on. Arrange for disconnection of phone, electricity, internet and other services (make sure you give your providers the right date for the move) and set them up at your new place.
It’s also a good time to rope friends and family into helping with the move, packing or looking after children and pets. Start thinking about which items you need us to move, and which you’d like to handle yourself.
Tell Australia Post about your new address and arrange mail redirection. Start working your way through the food in your freezer and pantry – it’ll mean less work on moving day!
