Mikey's Moving and Storage Tips Hello, my name is Mikey and this is my moving and storage blog. I would like to welcome you all to what I hope will grow into a fantastic blog. I must say, I didn't know a thing about this topic until last summer when I had to pack up my stuff and move it across Australia from Perth to Syndey. I had been offered a fantastic new job so I had to relocate. I had a few friends in Sydney and I thought the move could be a real adventure. I hired a moving company and contacted a storage place so I could keep the stuff I didn't have room for safe. I learnt so much from working with the professionals who worked for these companies, I want to share it here.
