Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Removalist?

Moving can be an exciting time. You are going to a new home in a new neighbourhood, and you are probably looking forward to it. What you likely aren't looking forward to is the actual move itself. After all, it can really be a pain, because there are so many details to take care of. One way to take a lot of the stress of moving away is to hire a removalist. If you are interested, but are wondering about the cost, here are some of the things that are factored in when calculating the total moving cost.


The length of time it will take to complete the move is a huge factor when it comes to the cost of hiring a removalist. Most removalists charge either by the hour or by the half-hour. If you don't have a lot of stuff to move, it could take less than a couple of hours, so you won't have a huge bill. On the other hand, if you are moving a lot of things, it is going to take longer, and you will be charged more. There are things you can do to make things go faster, so you don't have to pay as much, including making sure that everything that is being moved is all ready to go when the people from the removalist company arrive.

Amount of Workers

If you have a lot of heavy furniture to move, the removalist company is likely to have more than one person doing the job. The more workers there are, the more the move is going to cost. You can save money by getting friends to help with loading and unloading the truck, so you only have to pay for the moving truck and the driver.


You can get people from the removalist company to do all of the packing for you, but remember, this is going to cost more money. If you have the time, it is best to pack your own belongings. It is best to use proper packing supplies, such as proper boxes, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, labels, shrink wrap and moving pads, which you can buy from the removalist company.

Moving Items Yourself

You can save on the cost of hiring a removalist company by moving a lot of the smaller items yourself. You may be surprised at how many boxes and other items you can fit into a car. If you have a half-ton truck, or have access to one, you can move all of the smaller items, and all that is left for the removalist are the heavy furniture items and appliances.
