Many Perth families are moving out of a rental into a home of their own.
If you’re one of the people ending your lease forever – or moving out of one rental into another – keep reading to find out how a Perth removalist can take the stress out of moving day.
A Perth removalist’s tips for moving out of a rental
Check your rental agreement carefully
Most rental contracts specify that you need to give 28 days’ notice before moving out.
Your contract might also specify terms unique to your property, like handover condition, making time for viewings, or your cleaning responsibilities.
So read through your rental contract well before you plan to move out of your rental.
That way, you avoid nasty surprises and last-minute moving stress.
Settle unpaid charges before you move out
Try to pay any utility bills before handing the keys back to your landlord.
Take photos of your meters when you settle your bills for lasting proof that your dues are all paid.
Then you can apply to receive your bond quickly, so you have money for the move.
You also need to cancel or re-route subscription services.
Otherwise, the new tenants will receive your weekly grocery box, and you will be in your new home with nothing to watch on TV.
Be careful not to damage the property
Moving out of a rental often involves manoeuvring bulky furniture around tight corners and down stairs.
When you’re tired and rushing, it can be easy to lose concentration and damage the walls on your way out.
This is where hiring a reliable removalist in Perth can save you considerable stress, not to mention the unexpected cost of paying for repairs.
