We had done quite a bit of pre move preparation but today did involve a lot of "take this box, throw that random stuff in it, don't bother with the tape, can we fit anymore in the car?" and we got it done!
Ja basically unassembled ALL of our furniture in under 40 minutes whilst Ka did a few "drive and unload" at the new house. We then had removalists come from Local Small Moves come to help move some of the things that just wouldn't fit in the golf (fridge, washer, mirror, cabinets etc) and they were SO fast and so cheap with moving everything (it was around $150 to move it almost 20 minutes across town, including packing and unloading). I was super impressed and if we (god forbid) ever move house again, we will have no hesitations in using them again!
We then decided that we need to get some things suchs as bins for the new house and all of a sudden ended up in bumper to bumper traffic to Ikea. We made it, had some food and then instead of just purchasing bins like we needed we also left with a rug, a coffee table, bins and a whole bunch of other bits and pieces which it turns out we did need!
Now comes the fun of unpacking and further culling down our belongings! *phew*
