Roy’s Round-Up

Roy’s Round-Up

Roy Butler MP

It has been another busy fortnight, one week sitting in Parliament, and since Parliament rose, I have been in Canberra talking water and energy with federal actors. I also managed to slip down to Eden Monaro where Matt Stadtmiller is running for the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party in the by-election. Matt and I spent a couple of days talking to locals and looking at the impact of recent devastating fires. We also turned to locals for advice on what needed to happen to prepare for the next fires.

In early July I am heading out to Coonamble, Walgett and Lightning Ridge. I hope to speak to plenty of people, and report back on the work we have been doing relevant to their communities.

Please keep your guard up on Coronavirus, as we see people moving around more and more, social distancing and hand hygiene is our best defence to keep the virus at bay. You have done an amazing job, hopefully in coming months we can see zero cases, and get back to a more normal life.

'If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty'

'If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty'

Opinion - John Tough

After years of delays, the NSW state government has approved the expansion of the controversial Narrabri gas project, despite opposition from many in the local community. 

The project, which was opposed by the vast majority of submissions during the consultation process, could involve up to 850 new coal seam gas wells being drilled on 1,000 hectares of a 95,000 hectare site covering the Pilliga forest and nearby farm land.

If you've never seen a gas drilling site up close, they're not pretty. 

Towers being raised across the countryside, orange flames from gas flares, glaring floodlights, constant noise from the grind of the drill - and that's not even touching on the potential for land and water pollution from fugitive emissions during the drilling process.

Moving Made Easy: Packing Tips For Your Next Moving Day

Published on Friday, October 18, 2019

Moving Made Easy: Packing Tips For Your Next Moving Day

Ways To Reduce The Stress of Packing It All Up 

Are you avoiding packing for your next move?

Stop procrastinating.

One of the most stressful things about moving to a new home is not house hunting or getting the money together, it is actually moving.

The thought of moving makes most people feel like there is a weight crushing on them.

Moving has even being ranked more stressful than divorce!

Imagine that!

Well, here are 8 ways that you can help ease the stress:

Tip #1 - Move During Autumn

Moving during Autumn is much better compared to the summer.

This is because most people know that moving when it is too cold is a nightmare, so they will be moving during summer.

That means more demand for moving and packing companies, houses and other services associated with moving.

Autumn means there is less demand, which means that you can get cheaper packing and moving services.

Tip #2 - Handle The Administrative Tasks Before Packing Day

Do not wait until the day you are packing to deal with administrative tasks such as cancelling:

  • Gas
  • Heating
  • Internet
  • Lease cheques (if this applies) 

You should also make sure that you have the utilities that you will need at your new place set up before you get in.

If everything is organised before the day that you plan to move you will have a much easier time transitioning.

Moving can be busy, and it can be easy to run out of time if you don’t prepare. Wellness experts at Shen Ko Vitality say that “nobody likes admin, so it can slip our mind if you don’t prioritise a time to do it. Having everything organised will give you a greater sense of calm and ease so that you can put your attention elsewhere and avoid unnecessary stress.

Tip #3 - Wrap Up Your Jewellery And Liquids

There is nothing worse than finding out that your liquids poured during the move.

They will probably spill into other things and cause damage.

For liquids, place the cling wrap between the bottle and the lid. This will prevent them from spilling when shaken during transit.

Jewellery is also at risk of getting tangled and destroyed when it is not stored properly.

A cheap and easy way to prevent damage would be by use of cling wrap. You can get enough to put your jewellery in and wrap it individually.

Keeping jewellery with soft items can help too. Online boutique, Tierra Alma, have tried many things to keep their jewellery safe when shipping it around the country and recommend to “always pack delicate items such as jewellery packed with soft items where you can. When our jewellery is shipped with clothing items, they are less likely to break in transit. Consider layering delicate items amongst your clothing when packing to reduce risk of damage.”

Tip #4 - Move On A Convenient Day

You can choose the days that you will be busy to move.

However, studies have shown that most people prefer to move on a Friday Or Saturday.

But the best option would be a Sunday.

There are fewer people moving which means that you can find a good moving company with sufficient time.

Ensure that you check if the moving company is available on Sundays since most companies do not require workers to go to work then.

Tip #5 - Find Out The Charges For Parking Fees

Keep in mind that the movers will need to be near your house in order to be able to move the things easily.

That means that you should have a space close to the entrance so that there is no long distance to carry the items.

If there is a chance that you can park your car at the front then move it when the movers arrive, then take it.

Keep in mind that some moving companies will charge a fee for items that have to be carried past a certain amount of metres.

You will also need to make the movers aware if they have to disassemble furniture during the move. This way, if there are any parking charges to be incurred, you are aware of them beforehand.

You should also find out the parking regulations for your area and the new place you will be moving to. If the movers are aware of the rules then there will be no delays caused by parking issues.

Tip #6 - Label Your Items According To Degree Of Use

During labelling, it is essential that you place the labels clearly.

This way, you will not have to struggle to get something when you arrive.

Sydney marketer George Bounatsos says it’s important to remember that you may not be able to unpack on the same day you arrive, he explains, “which means that you will have to know the boxes that certain items are in. This is why it is important to place the items that you use frequently in the same boxes. You will not have to get frustrated looking for things the first few days after your move.”

Tip #7 - Improvise Wrapping Material

You can find alternatives to using bubble wrap when moving.

You can wrap glasses in several layers of newspapers and you can also use your linen clothing to cover fragile items.

This way, you do not have to go out looking for bubble wrap. Additionally, you can use any large drums that you may have to store items like refrigerator trays. They will not have to fall out of an open fridge during transit.

If you have unused styrofoam, use it to prevent plates from breaking by placing it between the plates then placing them in the moving boxes.

It is also more environmentally friendly to use alternative wrapping options. Skip bin providers, Bargain Bins find that they “meet a lot of people moving home, and we can definitely notice a difference in the amount of waste between people who used things they already have around the house and those who bought single-use options such as bubble wrap. Be creative in the way you pack and you will benefit your pockets and the environment.

Tip #8 - Keep Pets And Children Safe And Out The Way

Do not forget to call a babysitter if you are moving and have small children.

You will have a much better time when you know they are safe and you do not have to stop the moving process to check on them.

If you have pets, ensure that they are placed in holding pens so that they do not run away during the move or distract the movers.

The presence of new people or the noise from clanging items could scare pets, especially cats.

This is why you should make sure they are at the new location prior to the move or safe with a neighbour.

So what are you going to do to make your next move a breeze?
