Moving is a real tiresome job, whether you live in Sydney or anywhere else. Those, who have to move quite often due to their professional interests, know what it entails. Days of packing and unpacking are followed by fuss over the important things left in the old house, unintentionally. Any good and reliable moving services Sydney can be hired to do the herculean task of moving, but it remains on your mighty shoulders that nothing of consequence should be forgotten before you make the final move to the new location. Best would be to make a list of the (hidden) places (to check and recheck) and things that are most prone to unintentional negligence. Let us start from some of them given below.
Item Given for Repair / Cleaning / Mending
Clothes for laundry, dry cleaning or tailoring, your favourite antique walkman to match the pair of earphones, foot wear for mending to the cobbler and many such things are on the list. Paying for shipping of such items will be an added pain.
Voracious book readers might like to add books they have given to their neighbour in the same list, but you understand what the point is being made here.
Possessions of Others
Most of the time, in your haste to pack every last bit, there are chances of forgetting things that do not strike unless it is late and possessions of others are among them. DVDs brought on rent; books taken from the neighbouring library or borrowed from a friend (just as you gave to others) and credit due on you are some of the issues you should clear off before moving. This is your personal responsibility and Sydney removalists cannot help you here for sure!
Contact Details of Friends, Relatives and Others
There is nothing wrong in taking help of Internet / smart phones to keep a record of contact info of important people and agencies. However, there are the issues of remembering and identifying the name (number comes just after that) and why it is important. Hence, keeping a list of such people always helps, especially when you might need them the most i.e. the day you leave for another location.
Records You May Need
Medical history of your family members including you and your pet, prescriptions, financial records, academic reports along with other necessary related documents of your child and likes are needed once you are well settled in a new place. Your legal / financial adviser and doctors may not have all the records and it will come with an added cost and inconvenience. On the other hand, education portfolio is a different issue altogether.
The miscellaneous items include spare keys, new address and contact information, and valuables that even you have forgot after hiding. Don’t forget to look for them when leaving finally after all the necessary clean up of the old home.
