Your big move

It is not unusual for people who are downsizing, moving in to a smaller unit or having to move into a nursing home to have 50 years or more of accumulated goods and belongings.

The situation can be even more difficult for people who are on their own or where family are interstate and not available to help. Many people who are moving need packers, removalists, unpackers, sorter/ de-clutterer, assistant, confidant, coordinator, cleaner and gardener all rolled up into one.

The stress of both finding professional assistance and then coordinating can be overwhelming. If you need help the best avenue is to speak to a case manager, social worker, placement consultant or contact a business that specialises in practical assistance with all aspects of relocating.

There are a number of businesses that offer this type of service, one of these is Moving On. They provide practical assistance with:

  • De-cluttering and sorting through household contents and personal possessions prior to moving
  • Supplying wholesale boxes and packing material
  • Packing, moving and unpacking into your new home
  • Sorting the saleable items and having them either valued or sold at auction on your behalf
  • Delivering unsalable goods to various charities
  • Removing all items deemed as rubbish
  • The final touches such as gardening, repairs and much more
  • Having the house ready for sale or rental

There are so many things to prepare and organise. Companies like Moving On alleviate all the emotional and physical work involved in relocating yourself, a friend or loved one into an aged care facility. They understand the challenges involved during this kind of change and their professional team will help you
