Moving Tips – Red X Transport

Moving house is stressful, and Red X is here to provide you with tips to help you with the process as well as providing all the services you need to make this change as easy and stress-free as possible.


Make sure you’ve covered your pre-moving needs

1. Have you received a quote for the move?

2. Make sure you’ve set a date and booked for the move.

3. Do you need:

A: Help with packing ?

B: Packing materials ?

C: Storage services ?

4. Make sure you’ve covered your personal records and rent or ownership requirements.


Organise your move early

Everyone underestimates how long it takes to pack items into boxes. Make a list of each room, the large items that need to be shifted and the small items that need to be packed.


Arrange for packing materials

Once you have an idea of everything you need to pack and move, you can organise the materials you need.

Make sure you have:

  • Boxes and cartons – large and small depending on weight and size of your items
  • Packing tape
  • Permanent marker or labels for the cartons
  • Bubble wrap and packing paper
  • Furniture covers

Also, Red X can deliver packing materials straight to you. Just contact us and we can help you determine what and how much you need.

Red X also provides packing services if you run out of time or just want to make sure everything is packed securely for your move.



What do you need within the first day of arrival?

Before you pack, think about what needs to be readily available when you arrive at your new residence. Separate your bed linen, kitchen utensils, bathroom items, clothing or other items you will need within 24 hours of moving in.


Label your boxes clearly

Our removalists will place everything where you tell us, but if you label the box with the room they are going into, the less you need to think about on the day.

List the contents on the box so you can be sure where everything is.

Label the boxes in the order that they need to be unpacked so you don’t need to rearrange everything again after unpacking.


Red X Transport has the experience and services to help you

Our staff are friendly and professional, so if you have any questions prior to the move, just call us. We are also happy to give you assistance on the day, all you need to do is ask.

We provide all services to help you with your removal needs, whether you need storage, packing and unpacking, removal of special items such as pianos, gym equipment and antiques, or just advice.
