Preparation for your move

To help you prepare for the move, here is an outline of some key steps and recommendations …

TOP TIP – Get a plan together and create a schedule

  • Declutter and Organise: Before you even start packing, take some time to declutter your belongings. Sort items into categories: keep, donate, sell, or dispose of. This will not only reduce the amount you need to move and save you money, but also help you start fresh in your new home.
  • Create a Moving Plan: Establish a timeline for your move. Decide on a moving date and coordinate with our team to ensure availability. Having a plan in place will help you manage the process more efficiently.
  • Packing Supplies: Ensure you have ample packing supplies on hand, such as sturdy boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and markers for labelling. We can also provide you with professional packing materials if needed.
  • Parking and Accessibility: If possible, reserve a parking spot for the moving truck at both your current and new locations. Ensure that there’s clear access for loading and unloading. And do let us know in advance about any tricky access issues.
  • Notify Service Providers: Remember to notify relevant service providers about your move, such as utilities, internet, and postal services. This will ensure a smooth transition and prevent any disruptions in services.
  • Marlborough Sounds Properties: If you’re moving to a property in the Marlborough Sounds without road access, rest assured that our barge services are equipped to handle such scenarios. We’ll work closely with you to coordinate the logistics and ensure a seamless move.
