Moving to Melbourne? Self Storage Can Help

Melbourne is a great city to move to. There is always something going on and even if you choose to live in the suburbs you are just a short commute away from all the action. While it is a fun place to live, the move itself may not be the most fun. Today we’ll share a few tips to help make the move a little easier including storing some of your stuff in Self Storage Campbellfield while you make the move.

1. Purge your Items First

Before you start diligently packing items away into cardboard boxes, do yourself a favour and take a look at the items you have in your home and decide if you really need all of them. You’ll likely find that there is a good amount of items that you can give away, donate, or dispose of prior to the move. This is a great way to ensure that you are not wasting time packing items that you will literally never use again.

3. Enlist the help of Friends

When it comes to packing all of your stuff into boxes, it is always better to have as many people helping as possible. This means that you should purchase some snacks and drinks and invite all of your friends over to help you pack your things into boxes and load onto the moving truck. If your friends are willing, enlist their help to assist you in unpacking your boxes as well! The more hands you have unpacking things, the quicker you will be moved into your new home in Melbourne!
