How to Downsize Effectively Before a Move: Our Expert Advice

Downsizing your home is sometimes necessary, whether because of financial reasons, moving to a new area, travelling overseas long-term, or just to start fresh.

Start as Soon as Possible

Giving yourself weeks or months to prepare before a downsize helps to limit stress and increase your chance of an effective, hassle-free move. Start as soon as you can and make a plan, room by room.  

Find a Decluttering Strategy 

Decluttering comes naturally to some, while for others it can be hard to let go. Find a strategy that works for you when you start to declutter your space. You could start by purging your wardrobe of clothes you haven’t worn in a year. Alternatively, go through each room with four boxes labelled ‘bin’, ‘donate’, ‘keep’ and ‘store’. There’s a strategy out there that will work for you!

Take Inventory 

Make an inventory of what you have. Maybe room by room, take stock of your belongings and figure out what you really need in your new house. There may be sentimental items you don’t want to store or donate, and that’s okay. Just make sure you know where everything is going to live when you unpack it.

The Importance of Properly Labelling Your Moving Boxes QLD

When you’re moving your home or office space, you can easily miss things, get overwhelmed and rush through it. If you label your moving boxes properly, however, it can make all the difference at the other end. Here at Dawson Moving and Storage NQ, we are the experts with all things packing, sorting, organising and transporting, and we know the difference proper labelling can make. If you’re after a stress-free, low effort move, contact the professionals and make sure it gets done properly. If you need someone to help with pack and send in Townsville, feel free to get in touch today.

Organisation and Priority 

Label boxes as you pack them, writing a short summary of the contents and which room it belongs in. This way, your pots and pans won’t end up in your bathroom. When you’re unloading furniture and boxes from the moving van, it will be much easier to put your boxes in the right room, based on what room is written on them. This means that, at the very least, you know that whatever you need is in the room it should be in!

Transporting Your Boxes Safely

When you properly label your moving boxes, you remember what’s in them. This can mean the difference between handling a box full of fragile items, like porcelain and fragile crockery, with care or rushed enthusiasm. If you cover your boxes with fragile stickers and tape, and label according to room or contents, this will ensure that you or your home or office moving company handle your belongings with care.

Unpacking Made Easy

When your boxes are already where they need to be, this makes unpacking so much easier. When your belongings are also labelled on the front of the box, for example, labelling where your cutlery is, you can unpack by priority.

Townsville’s Hidden Gems: A Neighbourhood Guide for New Residents

Townsville is a coastal city in northeastern Queensland. Popular with tourists looking for beach, wildlife and active opportunities, it’s a beautiful place to live and call home. If you’re thinking of moving to Queensland or you have your move to Townsville planned, the professionals at Dawson Moving and Storage NQ can help. Our moving services are second to none, some say the best removalists in Townsville. As we are locals, we can recommend the best hidden gems in the area. 

The Popular Sights of the Neighbourhood 

The Strand Esplanade has a pier and a water park, making it a great spot if you’re looking for a fun, family day out. There’s also the sea turtle hospital at The Reef HQ Aquarium if you’re looking for a great first day with the kids. Southeast of the city sits the Billabong Sanctuary wildlife park, home to koalas, wombats and crocodiles. Offshore sits Magnetic Island, surrounded by coral reefs and a national park full of wildlife.

Castle Hill Hikes and Drives

Castle Hill is an amazing spot for 360-degree views, and you can take the option to hike up the hill or drive. If you’re up for a challenge, try the goat track at sunrise. Alternatively, take your car for an easier, more leisurely way up (maybe with a blanket and a pizza).

City Lane Dining Precinct 

City Lane is Townsville’s laneway dining and bar precinct and the perfect spot to meet with new friends for a bite to eat. It’s modern and relatively new on the scene, so it’s an awesome hangout for locals. If you’re new to the area and looking for a new favourite for after-work Friday drinks, this might just be the perfect place. 

Wallaman Falls

Wallaman Falls is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it’s also the highest permanent single-drop waterfall in Australia! Part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area in Girringun National Park, this is an amazing spot for a moderately challenging hike with a big reward.
