If you're in the market for a new home, you're probably aware of the stress that can come with moving. As Metricon has been in the home building industry for over 40 years, we know a thing or two about building and moving. These moving and packing tips will help you to be prepared and avoid moving day troubles.
Donate, sell and recycle what you don't need
Once you've decided that you're moving, it's time to start the big clean and declutter of your home. Rather than packing everything, find what you don't need, donate it to op shops, sell it on Gumtree or recycle it. Don't take everything from your current home to your new home – you'll only waste space trying to find a new spot for it to gather dust!
Create a couple of packing kits
It pays to invest in the right packing materials, and keep them all bundled together. If you don't create one of these kits, markers and tape will somehow disappear and reappear in the strangest places. You can keep packing tape, bubble wrap, permanent markers, scissors, screwdrivers, a Stanley knife, and any other items that you'll need frequent access to in this kit.
