Get clear on the day/date you want to move. If you book for the move earlier, you tend to get better deal from the movers.
3. Clear with your current and new home estate management
Nothing as frustrating as having all your household items packed in a truck and then they can not leave the housing estate because a certain form was not signed. Be sure to get all clearances well before the move date especially if you are moving on a weekend or public holiday.
Cats, dogs and other animals are known to disappear on the move day. It is overwhelming for them to see very many strangers in the house. Be sure to keep your pets in a pet carrier and keep them in a corner until it is time to leave. At this point, you can take them to your personal vehicle. Movers do not carry animals with them unless prior arrangements have been made for pet transport.
