  • - Department of Inland Revenue (I.R.D) - Electoral Registrar - your local council - the Police Department if you hold a firearms licence - your solicitors - your church or clubs you belong to - publications to which you subscribe (cancel or transfer subscription) - friends or family
  • Confirm your removal date with Ausmove, along with any other aspects of your move, e.g. packing, storage, insurance, documentation, your pets etc.

  • Empty gas bottles.
  • Clean out medicine cabinet and dispose of unwanted medicines in a safe way, i.e. via the chemist.
  • Have your TV aerial taken down and dismantled.
  • Anchor the drum of the automatic washing machine – please consult your local appliance dealer.
  • Arrange an easy meal for moving day with disposable utensils, or eat out.
  • Disposal of, or arrange with Ausmove to store unwanted furniture.


  • Set aside jewellery, money, valuable documents, travel documents, stamp collection, to take in your possession. Don't forget books and games for the children.
  • Lock up pets if required.


On move day

  • Be sure someone is at the old house to answer questions.
  • Anything left behind? Prior to Ausmove leaving, check the garage, under the house and in unused cupboards?
  • No clothes at the dry cleaners or goods at the repairers?
  • Surrendered keys.
  • Has your new house been cleaned prior to moving in? It's easier to do when it's empty and Ausmove can arrange this if required.

Handy Hints

  • Ensure fridge/freezer cleaned – wipe out using a damp cloth with vanilla essence, blow dry (especially corners), put silica gel into a compartment or four to five tea bags which will soak up any moisture and will ensure it won’t go mouldy.
  • Don’t place breakables, liquids or heavy items in drawers.
  • Avoid overloading drawers with linen, etc. and don’t forget to check that all items have been moved.
