Protecting your furniture and personal belongings from accidental loss or damage is one of the biggest concerns when moving house. For the comfort of knowing your belongings are insured we provide a range of cover options for you to consider at competitive rates. Our team will also advise you on how to determine the sum insured for replacement value.
The most pain-staking task when moving house is the time and effort that it requires to pack up your household items and have them ready to be moved to your new home. From ensuring that you’ve packed fragile items with materials to minimise damage, to making sure that the box you’ve packed isn’t too heavy, there are numerous factors to consider along the way. This is where a Wridgways valet service can save you time that can be spent doing more enjoyable things like furniture shopping for your new home or getting the family together to decide where everyone wants to explore in your new area.
Here are three ways valet services will make your move far easier:
- Packing – Your dedicated Wridgways valet lady will come to your home and carefully pack all of your precious belongings so that they’re ready to be moved, including the use of specialised protective materials for any fragile items that you may have. They will also ensure that your boxes are of a safe weight for lifting and transportation.
- Cleaning – Your professional valet member can then clean your home completely, so that it is ready for the next family to move in and/or any inspections as arranged by your real estate agent. Upon arrival at your new destination, your valet services team can also give your new home a thorough clean prior to unpacking your furniture and household items, ensuring it’s nice clean and fresh for you to move into.
- Placement & Unpacking – Organising your new home to suit your families’ needs and preferences can be a demanding task. Our valet ladies do this for a living and have extensive experience in ensuring the set-up of your new home is just perfect for your family. From placement of furniture, to the setting up of your bedrooms, office, bathrooms and kitchen in the most efficient manner possible, you can kick back and relax while having someone else do all of the hard work for you.
Packing and unpacking your kitchen is often one of the most dreaded tasks when moving house. After making sure you haven’t left anything behind, then to organise the kitchen upon arrival at your new place, there are many things you can do in between to make the process not only less-stressful, but achieve the most beautifully organised kitchen as possible.
We’ve listed some tips below to make the transition to your new kitchen an easy and gratifying project:
The Clear-Out/Packing Stage:
- Clean out all cupboards and drawers – Start by setting up boxes for things that are either travelling to your new place, being donated to charity or going in the bin; whether that is recycling, compost or general waste. Follow this up by going through your food items, appliances and storage containers – have you used this item in the last 6 months? Are you likely to use it in the next 6 months? If not take it out of the “moving” pile, and put it into the “donate to charity” pile. This should minimise the contents you will be moving to your new home already.
- Wrap crockery and breakables carefully – Bubble wrap is great to utilise if you’ve got some, if not, cardboard dividers in conjunction with towels will do just fine. For extra protection, contact a professional moving company that offer a packing service – they provide all of the packing materials and do the hard (and delicate) work for you. If you are moving with Wridgways and have elected to pack yourself, we will happily provide you with recycled packing cartons and wrapping materials free of charge! After all, we want to make the moving process as easy and safe as possible for you.
Moving house is the perfect time to get organised and declutter, sell and dispose of any unwanted items! Even if you’re moving to a larger home with more space, streamlining will help revitalize your life and provide a fresh start in your new home.
It’s never too early to begin clearing out the clutter and typically, the longer you live somewhere, the more clutter you gather! To make the process less overwhelming, just take your time; begin a month or so in advance and go through your home one room at a time. It may be hard to ask yourself the often excruciating question: “do I really need this?” But rest assured, once all of these difficult decisions are made and extraneous belongings removed; both packing and unpacking will be much faster and easier.
So here’s a room-by-room guide to get you started:
Kitchen – start with your kitchen appliances; seek out old, broken or unused items. If you haven’t used an appliance in the past 12 months, let it go! Next check your plates, pots and pans. If it’s broken, chipped or cracked, throw it out. Finally, go through your cookbooks. When was the last time you used them? Consider getting rid of old ones and any you have never used. Now there’s the kitchen drawers, including cutlery and the bits n bots drawer, go through one at a time and dispose of the items you simply no longer need or use.
Pantry – clear out any out-dated food cans, jars, spices etc. Half empty containers of food and stale snacks can all go too! Remember your removalist can’t pack or move open bottles of liquids so give them to a neighbour or move them yourself.
Dining room – old, unused or damaged dining ware, china and glassware is a good place to start. If you have any stained linen like table clothes or runners, add these to your purged pile. Keep an eye out for any broken or damaged artwork also.
Lounge Room – old ornaments, nick-nacks and damaged items can be quickly discarded. Outdated picture frames and wall hanging features are always welcomed items at your local Op Shop too. The old favourite CD’s and DVD’s can be recoded to your iPod and make ways for new music purchases. When it comes to movies; if you don’t love it, let it go. Try listing them on eBay or adding them to your give-away pile or hold a garage sale before you move. Consider selling unwanted video games and kids electronic hand-held game devices to gaming stores; you may be surprised at how quickly your funds grow from the sale of your unwanted goods.

When it comes to packing, being faced with boxing up your entire house with a looming deadline can be a very daunting process! But never fear, we have a few ideas and words of advice to assist keep your stress levels at a minimum:
- Hire a Professional if possible – The obvious answer is to hire the carton packing services of a professional removalist company like Wridgways! Our skilled packers can pack the entire contents into cartons in one day! But don’t try this at home, these girls and guys have been professionally trained and pack fragile and non-breakable items into boxes every day and it is what they do better than anybody else. If you can’t afford to pay for a full pack, consider having the professionals pack your fragile items only. This consists of glassware, ornaments, electricals, pictures and anything breakable. Keep in mind that anything you self-pack may not be eligible for insurance cover.
- Plan – Regardless of whether you are packing part of all of your belongings, be sure to start as soon as possible. Devise a plan and set dates against each room or area. In your plan include set dates to pack each room and work room-by-room. Start with the drawers and cupboard contents you use least. The key is getting organised early and allowing plenty of time to complete the process. This will help keep your stress levels to a minimum.
- Clear out unwanted items – Start getting rid of all the things you don’t intend to take with you to your new home. It’s a great opportunity for a fresh start plus will save you time and energy moving it to the new home. Unwanted items can be donated via a cool website called Ziilch.com or of course sold using EBay or the good old-fashioned Garage.
