How to Move Interstate on a Budget

  • Ask questions about items that concern you
  • Pack items you will need upon arrival in a box and place in your car
  • Keep jewellery, passports and other valuable documents separate to be conveyed by you
  • Check the manufacturer’s instructions for moving appliances
  • Empty all petrol powered items safely. BBQ gas cylinders need to be purged by an authorised dealer
  • Wash all garden tools of soil if travelling interstate and check which plants can be taken
  • Keep cleaning equipment apart so you can clean when the removalist has gone
  • Inspect the house thoroughly before leaving for the last time

Professional interstate furniture removalists are few and far between so be warned that unless the removal company has the credentials like we do here at Caloundra Removals they aren’t worth considering.

Interstate furniture removalists with years of experience value the importance of making your move as painless as possible.

Choose right first time

By doing your research and checking out the important aspects of what is going to give you peace of mind for your interstate move will be the most cost effective route to take.

Visit the company website

The way the information you need is presented is important. The site should be easy to navigate and the information clear and to the point. If you chance upon a shabby site, it is almost certainly an indication of what to expect from the actual process of your household removal.

Check customer reviews

These will give you a good indication of what the interstate furniture removalist will do for you. Go to our about section of our website’s “about” section and click on the “testimonials” tag to see what our customers have to says.

The services you provided are truly exceptional and we would reiterate that everyone from the guys to the office admin are streets above every other company we have personally dealt with.”
