 If it doesn't, reliable moving companies can offer security either involved or as an additional cost, nevertheless, be sure to read the small print.

Removalists

Ask around for recommendations on removalists and request quotes from approximately three or four to decide which is the most cost-effective.

To reduce the cost, book at least six weeks in advance and consider moving during the week rather than over the weekend. When evaluating removalists, price is however not the only consideration.

 Make sure the company you choose is a member of the Australian Furniture Removers Association; this will reduce the risk of getting an amateur removalist – which can be a costly mistake.

Organize your utilities

Disconnect and reconnect your electricity, gas, telephone, and water approximately two weeks leading up to the move. This also provides you with a good opportunity to review your quarterly spending and consumption and see if there are any areas you could be saving money.

Packing

Get rid of the clutter in your home, start room-by-room and try and clear out the junk as you go by either dropping it off at charity stores or giving it away. The less you have to move the more time and money you'll save.
