Personally I did not learn anything but that is because I did not have this wonderful book as a reference, I had to learn it over the years the hard way, with many possession lost and costs incurred. If you have never moved, or only done it a couple times, GET THIS BOOK! It not only helps you organize and plan ahead, it will help you feel in control of your move, which believe me, is something you will value during this stressful time.
From page one you are taken step by step through the move, into the sale of a home or the vacating of a rental, all the way to your new house. My only complaint is a minor one, and that is that the language is not American. She doesn't use the word "movers" and it took me a while to realize that is what she is talking about, not some new kind of service. Also, she states that most movers charge by volume so notify them if you get rid of stuff after your estimate. Here in the US I have found they go by weight, not volume, which is a minor difference but just be aware of it. Lastly, a lot of the book may not apply to the average person since many of the things she suggests (hiring a professional home shower to decorate your house or rent furniture) the average person cannot afford. However, I still say it is a must have since you can always find a talented friend or do it yourself!
In today's market I do think there is room to sell your home yourself, if you do it the right way, whereas she maintains that a Realtor is the only way to go. But that is a matter of opinion and if you want to do it yourself you would need to read a whole other book on the subject anyway.Read more ›
As an American, it took me a moment to get used to the Australian lingo (e.g. removalist = movers, etc.), but overall I found this to be an easy read with a lot of valuable information. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about relocating, or as they say down under, moving house!
This book does not get into the process of price negotiation, guaranteed versus non-guaranteed pricing, types of 'mover's insurance' (a misnomer) available from the removalist, and other topics that might be of interest to an American. One thing also not mentioned is the *critical importance* of completely reading both proposals and contracts. One of the biggest causes of major problems between a removalist and a client is a customer thinking they bought/paid for an item that is simply not included in the proposal!
I think "Moving Without Mayhem" fills a void and I hope the author in subsequent editions will expand on the topics I've mentioned. As it is, it will help immeasurably in assuring a minimum of heartache and moving to a new house stress free! Well worth reading!
