It is no secret that moving is a challenging task - especially if you have children, are on your own, or are unable to take time off from work. The importance of finding some helping hands cannot be overstated.
You can easily post jobs you need assistance with on Airtasker, such as moving, packing, cleaning, or assembling Ikea furniture.
How does it work? The app's users respond to your ad, and you choose a suitable respondent to hire and negotiate a fee.
Internet is crucial — especially on the first night in a new home. Whether it's streaming movies, finding your local coffee shop or playing music while unpacking, you’ll want your internet up and running as soon as possible.
With Optus, all you need to do is message the digital agent within the My Optus App. Just type ‘Relocation’ in the chat and the agent will direct you on how to set up a relocation date. Then follow the prompts to register your change of address to have internet set up from day one. Existing Optus customers can take their current modem with them if they’re moving within the same coverage zone.
If organised packing is your style, then this app is for you. Use Moving Van to keep lists and photos of what’s in each box and track specific items during the move. It’s especially helpful for keeping tabs on what items are going into long-term storage.
While purging your belongings can help declutter your home, it doesn't disappear. This is why it's a good idea to know exactly what you can recycle and how to recycle it.
The Recycle Mate app, made by the Australian Council of Recycling, will tell you what you can reclaim and reprocess, which bin to use at home, or suggest drop-off locations for household items such as batteries, mattresses, white goods and electrical items.
