Whether you’re moving to a smaller house because you’re getting set to retire, your children have grown and moved out on their own, or you’re trying to save money, downsizing the number of items you own, and therefore must pack, move and unpack, can be challenging. As a trusted Brisbane removalist, however, we’ve learned some tried and tested tips for effectively eliminating all the unnecessary items you really don’t need or want while holding onto the items that are of value to you and your family.
Deciding What Stays
This is undoubtedly the hardest part of moving to a smaller house; choosing which items you will keep, which you will store and those that will be tossed or donated. Here are some helpful hints to make the furniture removals process a little easier:
*Start by getting rid of anything that’s broken or damaged beyond repair
*If you haven’t used it in the last 6 months to a year, you’re not going to and so these items should be tossed or given away
*Only keep items that you use on a regular basis or that have sentimental value, such as family heirlooms and photos
*If there are items you use only during certain seasons, consider putting them in storage

Often, when people put items they can’t quite commit to tossing in storage, they soon discover that they can live without them quite easily.
