How To Make Moving Day Easier

Moving houses is no easy feat, especially if the whole family is moving from one residence into a brand-new home. On the bright side, it is a clean slate and a new beginning that forces you to re-evaluate the things you own and have a big spring clean. To make moving day as easy and as enjoyable (dare we say it) as possible, we have some handy tips that’ll shorten the labour and simultaneously help you put things in place much quicker than you’d anticipated.

Give Yourself A Timeline & Make A Checklist

The worst thing that could happen on moving day is that the removalist’s truck shows up and you’re completely unprepared. Moving into a new home makes you very busy in a short period of time and occupies your mind with the many things that need to be done. To avoid forgetting things or getting overwhelmed with the process, make a timeline and a checklist to go with it. You’ll then be able to tick off the things that need to be done two weeks before, a week before, two days before and so on. Make the list as extensive as you need to. The more detailed, the smoother your moving day will be.

Sell Items Weeks In Advance

If you plan on selling furniture, appliances or any other bulky household items, publish your ads weeks in advance. There’s no telling that someone will want to purchase your items on the week you need get rid of them, so give your ads time to get exposure for as long as possible. If you need the items up till the day you move out, like a fridge, you can still put the ad out and let buyers know that it will be available for pick up on a specific date.

Donate Clothes That You Don’t Wear Anymore

We all have a “just in case” stack of clothes. The “just in case I need old clothes to paint in” or “just in case I have a dress up party” items. The truth is, if it hasn’t seen the light of day since last season then it’s time to part ways. If you don’t give some clothes up from a wardrobe that collects dust, you’re going to make it much harder for yourself to settle into your new place and struggle to utilise storage space. The best way to decide which clothes will make the cut into your new wardrobe is by packing your favourite items and the ones you wear every day first. From there, it’s a process of elimination. Create a pile of clothes that are still in good condition to donate to goodwill and another pile that need to be thrown away. A good tip to avoid wastage is to use old clothes as rags to clean surfaces of the property you’re vacating.

Don’t Stress!

The biggest no-no on moving day is stressing. You don’t want to be drowning in one hundred boxes hoping to be completely unpacked all in one day. Unless you have an army of helpers, it won’t happen. So, be prepared to give yourself some time to settle in. You’ll actually enjoy moving day if you let yourself get excited about the prospect of living in a new home – and if you built with New Edge Homes, you’ve got a lot to look forward to!


Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

We would just like to say a massive thank you once again for all your help with the house. We moved in on the weekend and we are loving it ! So thank you for being part of the team that made our dream come true.

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -

Monika & Mayur, Elara
