Moving house can be scary. Finding a new place, selling the old one and moving the entire contents of your home (whether human, animal or furniture) is a lot to manage. While unfortunately we can’t do anything about the housing market, we can offer you some advice on easing the anxiety that comes with any decision to move. Deciding to move is the first step. Think of it as an adventure—a new home in which to make new memories. If you’ve been feeling stuck or like you’ve outgrown your current place, then its time to make a fresh start.

Have you been feeling like your company has outgrown its current space? Are you tired of commuting to an inconvenient location that’s nowhere near your customers? Maybe you would like to be in Melbourne CBD or a specific suburb like Port Melbourne or Hawthorn? There are a number of reasons it might be time to relocate. Figuring out what your company will achieve by moving and how the move will support your business objectives can help you make a strategic decision. 1. Perception:The location of your office can affect the way your business is perceived. If your office is in an unappealing neighborhood or not visible to traffic, that will lead people to have a low opinion of your business. On the other hand, if you are in a nice location an...

One of the most common questions our booking team is asked is: What size truck should I book? Generally, if you’re moving a smaller place, such as a studio or one bedroom apartment, we recommend booking our 3 tonne truck. For larger moves, such as houses of two or more bedrooms, we recommend booking our 8 or 12 tonne truck. You can find full details of our removal trucks’ dimensions and other helpful booking hints {here}. Still unsure? We always say when in doubt it’s best to book the larger truck. Keep in mind that here at Move On Removals we only charge you for the time we’re out on your job. It’s often works out far cheaper for you to book the larger truck and only do one trip battling Melbourne’s traffic than risk having to do two trips. ... Read More

RBA Claims It’s Better To Rent Than Buy

RBA Claims It’s Better To Rent Than Buy

It’s the perennial property debate – will you be financially better off buying a house rather than renting one? In a recently released report, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) says that Melbourne tenants have the upper hand financially; at least for now. The study Is Housing Overvalued? argues that costs applicable only to homeowners, such as land rates, purchase price and interest rates, makes renting the more financially sound option. In order for buyers to catch up to renters, house prices would need to rise by almost 2.5% per annum. The RBA says recent figures indicate that house prices are forecast to either slow or decline over the coming few years, meaning that in the short-term at least, renters will continue to be better off. The study’s authors, howe... Read More

In the two years that we’ve been helping move Melbourne households, we’ve observed lots of little tips and tricks that you can make the most of on moving day to ensure a speedy and cheap move.

If you’d like to use our Pack ‘n’ Wrap ‘n’ Unwrap service, our team can come out and have everything organised either the day of your move or prior to it.

We find the quieter times are mid-morning to mid-afternoon early in the week, and on Sundays. Help out.... Read More

You’re more than welcome to box your smaller items on the day of your move and then transport them to your new home yourself.
