There comes a time in life (well, many times actually) when you wish you were still a kid worrying only about which games to play and whether your friends would also be up for your ideas. Looking at my kids and their carefree mindset I really get that Peter Pan philosophy and why he loves Neverland so much. I’ve spent a great deal of time watching Disney’s animations and reading stories with my kids, if you can’t tell, but just as I’m writing this article, I am reminded of my responsibility so I’ll let my kids stay in that lovely world of their own for a little longer while they still can. Now, back to the reason why I’m writing this article, we recently had to go through the life-changing process of moving out and changing homes. Not because we didn’t love our current home, but duty calls.
I must admit, even though we had to relocate because of me, I felt as lost as a kid myself, full of questions: Where do we begin packing? How do we all stay organised? How do I know which supplies I should get to begin with the packing? Can I stay calm enough and not show my family how stressed and worried this makes me feel? It was painstaking enough to find the appropriate new home so I thought the moving part would be a piece of cake. Boy, was I in for a surprise. We had plenty of things around, most of which I’d forgotten we had in the first place, and don’t even get me started on all the piles of toys.
My first idea was to try and come up with a list of all the items that really have to make it to our new home and a list of the items we could donate. Such moments are also perfect for teaching your kids some values of kindness, and it went much better than expected. In the end, however, my planning turned inefficient as we wasted more time than was meant, despite all of my prior preparations to get all the info on how to stay organised, so I thought why not get some professional help instead. Let me tell you, you’d be amazed how many advantages there are and you will pour more money down the drain if you try to do everything yourself rather than relying on removalists.
There are Sydney moving services that companies provide, just waiting for you to do the search and contact them. Reasons to consider their help? They have tons of experience, they have all the supplies you’ll need and much more muscle strength than you (seriously, they lift all kinds of items on a daily basis), and they have the ideal vehicles.
Now that I look back on it, I wonder why I didn’t get the courage to do so earlier, it would have saved me a lot of trouble. Luckily, the lists we prepared came in handy later for the removalists and it gave them a notion of all the valuables as well as the packing supplies that were necessary. My advice is that you talk to the company of your choice for every detail you want to know before the actual moving takes place. As part of the Sydney moving services of some companies, you’ll be informed on the whereabouts of your belongings at any time, thanks to their GPS communication software. We also got their help with unpacking once the whole moving was complete. Trust me, it was all money well spent and no damage was done to my belongings.
As I am writing from my new home, I can say I wouldn’t have made it without the help of experienced professionals. I’m happy, my family’s happy and we get to fully enjoy getting used to our new surroundings. Don’t hesitate and get some help, you’ll thank yourself later.
