Your guide to moving home

This home moving guide outlines the seven steps to ensuring a successful relocation to your new home:

Step 1: Make an enquiry

Speak to a removal company to arrange a survey of your home. Pickfords’ move consultations are free and face-to-face.

Step 2: Meet your move manager

At your home, your move manager will ask about your relocation and conduct a full survey of your belongings to understand your move requirements.

Step 3: Receive your move quotation and move plan

Your move manager will send you a full move quotation and a schedule for the day.  

Step 4: Choose your preferred removal options

Your move quotation may include several options for move day services to suit your needs. Decide what’s best for you, mark it on the acceptance form that arrived with your quote, and return it to us.

Step 5: Book your move

Contact your move manager to formally book your removal.

Step 6: Prepare for move day

If you opted to pack all or some of your belongings yourself, contact Pickfords for packing materials and tips on secure wrapping and sealing. Make sure the removal van and crew will have clear access to your property on the day.

Step 7: Sit back and relax!

Our removal crew will pack and transport the remainder of your belongings on move day, delivering to your new home and unpacking as per your requirements.
