Remember if you hire a cheap movers you may have to pay for boxes and other packaging material if removalists are doing the packing for you. So why pay ?, when you can always find boxes around you.

Bunnings is a great source of Free/ Cheap cardboard boxes. Even photo-copy paper boxes are pretty good in moving.
2. Get Rid of Your Junk
Even Cheap Removalists charge hourly rates for the move, the more junk you have the more hours it will take to load and unload the truck.

Donating is another way to get rid of stuff you do not need. Donating to Salvation army is a great way of recycling, helping the needy and feeling good about yourself.
