Three Extras You Should Take Advantage Of When Using Interstate Removalists

by Martha Reed

Australia is one of the biggest countries in the world, and traversing its states to move houses is not as easy as it sounds. Most of the time people will use ground-based interstate removalists because using air travel is simply too expensive and a pain to organise. However, what many people don't realise is just how many different services that interstate removalists offer that so few take advantage of. Here are a few different services that are offered by many interstate removalists that you should always try to add to your order so that your items are as safe as possible during the long trek to your new home.


It might sound a bit unusual, but interstate removalists can often offer storage options that can come in very handy for families who don't quite know what they will need in their new home. Perhaps you simply don't want to keep all your items but know that if you have them delivered to your home, they will take up a lot of room and get in the way. Simply use the storage spaces provided by removalists and then take your time to find a new home for your old knick-knacks, or wait until you are better settled and can put these items into a storage space inside your home.


Packing up your belongings is not as simple as it might seem at face value. Different items require different storage solutions — from the very fragile, like your plates and glasses, to the very heavy, such as furniture and major appliances. Most removalists, especially interstate removalists, offer packaging services for an extra fee, but it is well worth it because of how much effort this can take. Knowing your items are all well and truly secure during the long journey is very good for your state of mind, and it also means you can concentrate on other plans during this busy time.


It is always a good idea to spend a bit extra to get insurance on your interstate moves. You won't do this many big moves in your life, and making sure that the items you have worked so hard to buy over the years stay safe is crucial. Spending a little extra so that the time when your items are most vulnerable is covered by insurance is a great way to make sure you feel safe and have a more comfortable moving experience.
