Ensure The New Home Has Easy Access

Before you get started, you must first ensure the new home has easy accessibility for your needs and meets all safety checks in terms of getting your belongings in and out.

Start With a Checklist

Making your new home have ease of moving around is key here. Especially when dealing with essentials such as the bathroom and main bedroom as a few examples. This can be a daunting task at first, but by having a detailed list of things to do and check off can make the task much easier. Things such as establishing your living space can help. You should be covering everything from slopes for easy access, right down to details such as the entrance to certain rooms such as your bathroom and kitchen. Much of this will depend really on the level of your disability, but it’s a good idea to be prepared with a list ahead of time, so as to make it much easier for you in the end.

Seek Professional Help For Accessibility Aspects

Its possible you may need to make adjustments to your new home, in order for to suit your needs for your disability. Things such as handrails and modifications to slopes may be needed. If this is the case, it’s a good idea to contact professionals that can help with accessibility issues.

Declutter And Remove Anything You Don’t Need

Let’s be honest, all of us to some extent are hoarders. There’s always something you can find that you are keeping around that you will probably never ever use again. Ask yourself are you going to use that item in the next year or so? If the answer is no, you should bin and remove it. Getting rid of unneeded items will make the move go so much more smoothly and efficiently. And on top of that your new house will seem much more organised without the excess stuff.

Come Up With An Inventory List

You can absolutely lose track of what’s leaving your old house and going into your new house. In amongst all the chaos, this can get lost in the moment. It’s a good idea to come up with an inventory list that you can check off as going out, and then check off as going into the new places. This is especially important for the major items such as fridges and TV’s etc. it’ll give you that little bit of extra peace of mind when it comes to the move.

Don’t Pack Too Heavy

Getting the weight right when you start packing boxes is essential. In essence, you want to keep light. Don’t make the boxes too heavy, as it gets harder to transport later. This will help to make things go much faster with the move in the end. As a rule of thumb, the heavier the item, the longer it will take and will only add more time to your move.

Important Items Box

It’s a good idea to keep the smaller more important items together in one or two boxes. That way maybe in the end you can label it with an “extreme fragile” label. Or even you could personally oversee the move of that box to ensure it is ok. Another good idea is to have essentials on hand in a box, things such as toiletries, any medication you might need. Even things such as common clothes you might find handy when you are in the new home

Final Check Off With The Movers

movers and packers for people with disabilities sydney

Last thing to do before you start relocating the stuff is to check off with your professional mover if everything is in order. Get them to take you through a final walk through just to give you ease of mind that it will run smoothly. Its important all the major items are able to be looked after on the day. Especially big items such as the furniture and the fridge, these need to be covered by the professional mover to ensure a swift move. lastly make sure everything has been securely moved from the old place, before moving on to the new place.

Be Methodical In The Unpack

Once you have arrived at the new pace, its time to start unpacking. Its important to stay as organised as possible in this process. It’s a good idea to start with your important items first. A good idea might be to next organise stuff in the kitchen, as you’ll no doubt need that soon enough to cook. People generally go for the living room next, as the first thing you will probably do is turn on your TV in your lounge room to relax after the move.

Pick The Right Professional Movers

We strongly recommend you hire a moving professional for all your disability moving needs. Professionals are the way to go if you want to ensure it is a safe, quick and efficient move. let us take the hassle out of the move for you with our years of expertise in doing relocations for the disabled.

We have experience helping out people with wheelchairs, and things such as CPAP’s and lift chairs to name a few. We will provide the extra care needed to make your move stress free.

Packing up your belongings and moving to a new premises doesn’t have to be hard and laborious. Here are some moving and packing tips to make life a lot easier when it comes to that tricky relocation. Learn here on how to be prepared and how to use your packing boxes properly to make your moving experience smooth and effortless.

When it comes to moving, ultimately the success of an easy move can lie in the details of avoiding common mistakes most people make. If you make the choice to plan ahead, this will make a massive difference in the end.

movers and packers sydney

Preparing Ahead Of Time – be moving house ready!

For the majority of people, at some point in their lives they are going to end up having to do the annoying exercise of relocating and moving. A great first tip to consider is creating a moving list of itemised things to do and tick off as you go. This should help to keep track of things a hell of a lot easier. This can also help you guide you through the beginning process and see you through to the final stages.

Another great tip and trick is to efficiently learn how to set up your belongings and pack them in a truck for relocation purposes. Being able to effectively jigsaw puzzle all your precious stuff into a truck can save hours of heartache. Other obscure issues may pop up such as looking after a pet or small child during a move. Having them looked after and out of the way is highly recommended, so as not to slow you down in any way.

General Tips And Hacks for a stress free move

Remove All Stuff You No Longer Need

Going through all your stuff beforehand and determining what you actually don’t and do need, can save you a lot of unnecessary manpower. The way I like to look at it, is if I have not used this item in the last 5 years, then chances are I will not be using it for the next 5 years. So for me, that’s bin time. But you should determine yourself, what you do and don’t really need moving forward.

Start Packing As Early As You Can

packing and unpacking sydney

The sooner you start packing, the better off you will be. If you can manage to pack days, even weeks ahead of time, this will end up easing the burden on your moving efforts. A good idea is start packing the uncommon stuff, and other items you won’t really miss in your day to day. If you’re in a particular season, say winter, then you can potentially pack all your summer clothes first as you won’t be needing them for a while. When the time comes to move the rest, the burden will be eased significantly.

Book A Removalist Ahead Of Time

If you plan on organising a removal specialist, or plan on getting moving equipment, then it would be a good idea to get this sorted as soon as you can. The earlier the better if possible. The longer you take on this, could actually end up costing you more money. You may be able to secure a cheaper price by locking it in earlier. Doing it last minute can also result in shortages of movers, and quite possibility a premium price being paid due to the urgency of last minute.

Get Your Utilities Organised

As soon as you know the dates you are going to move into the new place, you should organize to get your utilities activated at the new address as soon as possible. Call your internet provider to get that booked in on the particular date you need it. Same goes for any electricity or gas that you might need activated. The sooner you get this organized, the better. The utility companies should be able to accommodate you once you’ve given them the dates.

Essential Tips For Packing for your move

Box Sizes Need To Be correct

A key factor and tip, that many get wrong is to have the right things go into the right size boxes. The heavier items should go into small boxes. Whereas the lighter goods should go into bigger boxes. Putting heavy items into big boxes is never a good idea for transporting and lifting, for obvious reasons.

Packing The Box Correctly

As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to put the heavy belongings on the bottom of the box. And then to proceed with the lighter stuff on the top. This should help, especially if you are transporting the boxes yourself.

Categorise Your Boxes

A good general tip is to categorise your boxes by room type. If you keep everything from the lounge in boxes labelled “lounge room”, then this well help compartmentalize your belongings. And it will also make it a hell of a lot easier when you are unpacking.

Securing The Boxes

Don’t be stingy with the tape! Make sure you tape up the boxes well, so they are nice and tight and secure. The last thing you want is the box breaking and your stuff falling out whilst transporting it. Make sure you wrap the tape all around the box to make it ultra-strong and secure.

Packing The Kitchen Items

You should extra care and pay special attention to the kitchen items. You want to make sure you pack the dishes and other brittle items in the correct manner. It would be really annoying for your plates to break whilst transporting them. Things like knives should be given special attention too when packing. To have knives falling out of the box is probably not the safest of ideas. A good tip is to scrunch up old newspaper to fill in as padding so the items are secure.

Have Your Wardrobe Organised

movers that pack for you sydney

Packing your clothes and having them ready for transport can be an easy enough task if you have a plan. A good general tip is you can fold the common clothes like shirts and shorts, and pack them in garbage bags. You can even fold them into boxes as well, whatever suits you. A nice little trick is to cover your hanging clothes in garbage bags. I like to cut a small hole at the top of the bag, so that the hangers can loop through. This way I can fit in 4-5 items on the hangers to be covered by the one garbage bag for protection whilst transporting.

Relocation & Moving During Lockdown In Sydney (updated 2021)

MOVING DURING SYDNEY LOCKDOWN

We here at Mooving Matters we go out of our way to continually provide reliable and essential moving and relocations services. In the event of the state wide lockdown, we aim to make sure all the stress of a move during these trying times can be made as easy as possible, whilst also ensuring we are adhering to all the governments rules and regulations.

Please note: This was last updated on the 21st of July, 2021. 

Relocating and moving houses is something people usually dread doing. Most people who have done it, usually hate to go through it again. Being that we are in a global crisis right now with the covid 19, and with the situation it currently is in Sydney, fears are even greatly heightened than normal unfortunately. Currently there are new regulations in place that the NSW government have put in place, so these definitely need to be considered and addressed in terms of how this will impact your move. What Mooving Matters aims to do is to alleviate all the problems and stress associated with the move.

Currently the situation in Greater Sydney has unfortunately seen the numbers spike to over 100 a day, there or thereabouts. This has resulted in the NSW government issuing stay at home orders for most of Sydney, also including other such places such as Blue Mountains, Wollongong and Central Coast. The restriction will likely stay in place at leas until early August it would seem.

So, what’s the story now with moving? Are we able to move during the lockdown? And if so, are we breaking any rules? Read below to get some of the more common queries and questions we get regarding the lockdown, and what you can do to make sure your moving process during lockdown runs as smoothly as possible.

movers and packers sydney

Am I ABLE to MOVE DURING THE LOCKDOWN RESTRICTIONS IN SYDNEY? 

The short answer is “Yes” you are absolutely able to move during the lockdown. Moving or relocating to a new place of residence within Sydney is deemed and considered to be a valid reason to leave your home. This applies to people in greater Sydney, even though you are currently under lockdown laws where you are required to stay at home.

If you are still not sure, you can always double check on the NSW governments website to double check it for peace of mind. Go to https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules/greater-sydney#stay-at-home-rules for the most up to date information.

SO, what rules do the removalists have to follow? what can and CAN’T they do?

Currently all operating removalist companies have the green light from the government to continue to work and complete jobs in NSW. But the situation with the outbreak for covid 19 has resulted in certain precautions and measures to be taken into consideration. Mooving Matters has taken the necessary safety measures to adhere with the NSW governments guidelines regarding covid 19 rules. We aim to minimise the risk of the outbreak, by ensuring that all our staff are required to ear masks whilst on jobs, whilst at the same time also respecting the social distancing rules in place. We will determine the risks involved prior to us beginning your moving job, to provide a clear picture of what needs to take place.

What are the safety implications during the lockdown?

Mooving Matters will take all necessary safety measures in order to ensure that you the customer will get the correct move done that comply by all the necessary safety standards. We will conduct a safety plan before the move to give you peace of mind. We have the necessary safety equipment as well, so that the move will go as smooth as possible.

We have years of experience in getting your moving job done securely and efficiently. The government guidelines and rules will be followed to a strict tee, and all precaution will be taken in regards to the outbreak. Let us bring our year of experience to help you with your job.

What about my own stuff? Can I pack that?

Hoarder No More….8 Of The Best Decluttering Tips

Clutter and general mess seems to have a habit of increasing when we aren’t looking and least expect it. It accumulates subtly, away from plain view and without you even noticing it getting worse and worse. For hoarders, (or individuals with strong storing inclinations as a nice way of putting it), this mess frequently appears as junk, items that are often unusable, or just a collection of things that have in general gotten totally out of hand.

Become a hoarder no more, with these 8 tips to help with decluttering. But should you need any help with this, Mooving Matters can take the hassle and headache of decluttering away. We can solve this problem for you to make life easier. Mooving Matters services the North Shore of Sydney, Australia……anywhere from Wahroonga, to Pymble, all the way to Woolwich, Hunter Hill and even Drummoyne.

A hoarder’s house can sometimes be akin to a minefield. A lot of the time its not just a little messy, often or not its regularly hazardous, unsanitary, and, now and again, unacceptable for everyday living.

Below are 8 decluttering tips for those we refer to as hoarders that should help you get to a good start.

moving boxes Sydney

1. SEEK ADVICE FROM PROFESSIONAL MOVERS & PACKERS

Getting help for a hoarder can come in many different aspects. You should really start by seeking sound advice from professionals. Especially if you suspect someone or someone close to you is a hoarder. Having an expert, authorized guide on your side will permit you to deal with the pain of releasing things in a sound manner. This often comes in the form of getting sound advice from a qualified counsellor.

Once you’ve consulted a counsellor, you probably should find someone that the hoarder can trust to help bring the initial phase of dealing with the hoarding problem. This usually comes in the form of a partner, or perhaps a family member who can help ease with this transition.

Understanding this process can help a great deal to resolve the issue, and letting them know they have support will go a long way in the end.

2. PUTTING A STOP TO THE JUNK PILES

As previously mentioned, having the expectation that a hoarder should totally stop the collection of unneeded items is probably unreasonable and improbable, and can possibly blow up and result in a serious glut of shopping binges, which doesn’t help anyone. Changes should be implemented slowly, and gradually introduced to help deal with the matter at hand. We can’t just rip off the band-aid and expect things to change over overnight.

All things considered, in the event that you or somebody you love is a hoarder, the objective should be to try to free up your home of a bigger number of things than you get.

We should be trying to focus on getting rid of things that are deemed not essential. Focus on additional cleaning up days and fewer shopping days.

3. ITS OK TO TAKE SMALL GRADUAL STEPS

As previously mentioned above, we need to start with small gradual steps when you are dealing with a hoarder. For those of us out there who are “go getters” we may inclined to rush into it and employ the “cold turkey” method by simply forcing a declutter into their home and cleaning it up yourself. Doing so will likely result in a bad reaction from the hoarder, and they may fall into an even more rapid decline when it comes to their hoarding problems.

Instead try to implement a plan where you can start declutter the hoarders things slowly by slowly. Maybe start with decluttering a small section of a room. Then you can move onto decluttering each room one by one, in a gradual manner. Phase 1 can include decluttering their primary room first. Then maybe you can move onto the lounge room etc etc.

Look at it from a perspective that the first step will eventually lead to the last step. But we have to take the first step first, then only move onto the 2nd step when we are sure they are able to handle it.

4. MAKE IT EASY TO ADAPT BY SHOWING THEM A CLEAR PATH

The principal thing you ought to do while cleaning up a hoarder’s house is to make paths where they walk be very clear of any mess and clutter free. The key living areas within a house should be paid extra attention such as the kitchen, the bathrooms and also their bedrooms where they normally sleep. Its essential that we get the basics right and keep these areas clutter free so they can adjust at a faster rate. A potential safe route is essential in the house while cleaning up. All things considered, you will not have the option to clear the messiness until you can really get to the messiness

5. REMOVE THE UNWANTED USELESS GARBAGE FIRST

People that are trusted, such as family and friends can really be of benefit here and help alleviate the problem fast when it comes to a hoarder. The majority of hoarders have a serious problem when it comes to other people handling their items. Primarily they fear that their stuff will be disposed of without their knowledge, or possible be even taken without being informed.

The most important factor here is that you first ask the hoarder for their OK or permission for you to potentially get rid of non essential items. Items that really in the long run they don’t need at all. You can often find all sorts of crazy things that hoarders will collect over time, stuff that most people would consider rubbish.

This is a great gradual step to take, and often results in a small win for both sides, as the hoarder has given their consent. From here on in the decluttering process should begin to flow more easily, and we can start to concentrate on decluttering more bigger items, such as sentimental items the hoarder may hold dear to the heart, but ultimately really need to go.

6. KEEP THEM INTERESTED

The most ideal approach to keep them interested when cleaning up is to restrict the measure of time spent on each cleaning up session. It helps to slowly implement this with manageable tasks such as 20 minute cleaning sessions. Or 30 minute decluttering where you concentrate on one room first. This can be progressed on a daily basis, or perhaps 4 out of the 7 days for example.

Another popular method used is to take photos of different stages of the declutter. For example a before and after photo. This often results in extra motivation when the hoarder sees the progress they are making whilst gradually going about the completion of the task.

7. KEEP THEM ON TASK

Many people who have clutter problems usually also suffer from being able to concentrate for long periods and have attention deficiencies. Generally the average person will be able concentrate longer, hence we need to deal with these averages in a clever yet effective way.

Turning off common distractions such as the TV or mobile phones, can often go a long way to keeping them concentrated. This can help you stay the course at hand and get the task completed. Of often helps to only have 2 designated piles, a yes or a no pile. There is no maybe pile that should be allowed. We make a decision to either keep it, or dispose of it. The word maybe should not even be considered when dealing with a hoarder.

It’s a good idea once the hoarder has agreed to remove the item, that we do so immediately. Get rid of the item or items right away and get them out of the house so that the hoarder cannot see it and change their mind.

8. DON’T EXPECT OVERNIGHT RESULTS

Things don’t happen overnight when it comes to dealing with hoarders and the decluttering process. We shouldn’t expect it to happen right away, it’s a gradual process.

Try to get the hoarder to make small changes and give up on certain items in a gradual process. This should help them get over the process in a much more effective way. Last thing you want is them starting to 2nd guess themselves, and stumbling when they make decisions.

Save your back with proper moving lifting techniques

When you hire the services of a professional moving service such as Moving Matters, your packing, unpacking and moving specialists, you don’t have to worry about using proper lifting techniques. Proficient and able movers realise how to utilise the correct strategies to evade and avoid injury and to take care of the job at hand at a fast and efficient pace. Here’s a summary of the critical proper lifting methods when moving heavy objects without hurting one’s self or causing any damage to the residence during a move.



moving boxes Sydney

Have A Plan and safety In Mind First

Assembling a plan should be first and foremost on the list of things you need to do prior to packing and moving. An arrangement of some sort for moving is imperative to the accomplishment of the move. Prior to anything being lifted and moved into the truck on moving day, it’s critical to have a plan. Proficient movers do this each and every day and they generally set aside the effort to have an arrangement before they lift one single thing. So try and sort out a plan of some sort, as this can help save time and effort in the end.

If you intend to move items you need to ensure the following safety measures are in place before hand:

  • Keep exit paths clear. Make sure no trim hazards are present along corridors, and random items can seriously jeopardize your safety and the safety of others involved in the move. The paths outside your home should also be free of any debris, excessive dust, water, mud, etc.
  • Wear appropriate footwear. Wear appropriate and comfortable shoes – ones that will give you the best protection possible. Enclosed toe shoes with rubber soles that offer good traction and flexibility such as joggers or sneakers.
  • Ask friends for help. Lifting heavy furniture and packed boxes is not something you should do on your own as it can be a rather dangerous task. Ask good friends or family with no health or physical aliments to give you a hand when you need it the most. If your friends cannot come to the rescue, you must consider hiring professional movers to avoid unnecessary pain and injury in the near future.

It May Be A Good Idea To Stretch First

It’s almost critical you try and stretch before and prior to lifting. If you somehow happened to go to the gym often, you’d probably stretch as a piece of your warm up before you start your full exercise. Lifting is similar as an exercise and first goes a long way to preventing injury. Stretching is definitely worth the extra effort in partaking, and a good idea to make sure you don’t get injured.

What Exactly Will You Be Lifting During The Move?

Mooving Matters are extremely experienced in lifting items. Generally we will not move something without first knowing what we are lifting. It’s a good idea to first have an idea of what you are lifting. How heavy will it be? Will you be able to move it through the door? How will you get it through the door?

For example, even when we move boxes. Generally we will know first whats inside the box before we attempt to lift it. The contents of the box are important, and how fragile or heavy the items may be. These all play a part in the decision making process before we attempt to move an item.

The Importance Of Using the Proper Stance

Moving anything substantial requires the correct position prior to lifting. An athletic stance with your feet at shoulder-width length separated is ideal. One foot ought to be slightly further forward than the other, too. If you incorporate these suggestions, it should help a great deal in moving items.

Prevent Back Injury By Bending with Your Knees

The quickest method to become injured while lifting items is to lift with your back. This would be termed by professional movers as an unacceptable lifting procedure. Proficient movers will bend and twist at the knees to ensure their back is safe and does not get injured. Furthermore, they will keep their back straight, shoulders back, chest out, and keep your eyes fixated ahead while they are lifting and moving hefty and heavy items. Your back is something you want to look after in the long term, as injury to the lower back can be very expensive and painful.

Have a firm grip

Make sure you have a good grip on the heavy object before attempting to lift it. Wearing good quality work gloves will improve the grip significantly and at the same time protect your fingers and hands. Whenever available, use handles to reduce the risks of any accidents.

Carry items close to your body

While moving heavy boxes, for always try to keep them close to your waist line– as it is relatively centred in relation to your body. This is the best way to maintain your stability as the weight will stay close to your centre of gravity. It’s also a good technique to keep your elbows tucked in and your eyes looking forward at all times.

Move your feet, do not twist

No twisting and shouting necessary here! It’s very important not bend or twist your back when lifting and carrying heavy objects whilst moving. Rather than turning with your hips at the waist, try to move your feet to turn together with the load.

Move slowly and smoothly

Avoid doing any sudden and jerking movements that may place a great amount of pressure on a certain part of the body. Always take slow and gentle movements allowing your muscles and soft tissues in your body to have the time to process and adapt. Also, make sure your footing is as secure as it can be, taking only small and careful steps – one at a time.

Keep the load below waist level

Try to lift heavy items up to your waist. Never lift heavy things over your head, as you will put extra strain on your arm and back muscles. Weight distribution in such cases is critical, if the load you’re trying to lift over your head turns out to be more than you can handle safely and its weight is not distributed evenly, you could easily become injured.

Push rather than pull

If you’re using mechanical aid as a furniture dolly or placed sliders under the legs of super heavy furniture pieces, then be mindful that it’s safer to push heavy objects forward than to pull them backward. By doing so you’ll not only need less force to keep heavy items moving, but you’ll also be able to see what’s going on in front of you.

Don’t Be In A Rush

It is of the uttermost importance to remember before moving heavy objects that you’re not trying to speed up the process. Your goal is to prevent personal injury, especially back injury. While proficient movers need to take care of business on schedule and get the job done fast, they will not be in a rush while lifting and moving things into the truck or out of the truck. All things being equal, they will set aside the appropriate measure of effort to move everything securely without injury to themselves or hurting your valuable belongings. Allocating the proper amount of time, whilst still maintaining a proficient speed is of the utmost importance to us here at Mooving Matters. And we value your belongings and ensure nothing gets damaged. Maintaining the integrity of the customer’s possessions is always at the forefront of our service.

Likewise, proficient movers gradually lift with their legs as they keep their backs straight during the interaction. By lifting gradually, movers can assist with preventing injury, which could also lead to damaging your things, which we seek at all costs not to do.

Step By Step To Communicate

At the point when you enlist proficient movers for your private move, you will see they make little strides and small steps while moving substantial things. Communication is key to the process, and they will likewise speak with one another to guarantee things are moved appropriately without injury. It’s particularly critical to convey when two individuals are moving a bigger item together.

Moving can be perilous. Without the appropriate lifting methods, attempting to move large items on your own could prompt and lead to injury. At the very least you will end up extremely exhausted and probably conclude doing that yourself was absolutely not worth it all. There are no motivating factors to risk it and put it to chance.
