Time to move on(line)

OK. So maybe movinghome.com.au doesn't have a Beam Me Up, Scotty transporter in place yet. But it covers just about everything else you could possibly need to worry about in your trek to a new place.

The site aims to make the dreaded task of moving house a little less painful for the 1.5 million people that change habitats each year in Australia. Dr Steve Hodgkinson, movinghome.com.au's CEO, summed up the rationale behind the site. "Movinghome.com.au provides home movers with easy access to a comprehensive range of essential moving-related services and tools at the one address available any time of the day or night. It's the sort of service the Australian market has been desperately seeking for some time. It's moving made easy," he said.

At present, the site assists registered users in acquiring a number of services to help them with their move. Some of these include changing their address, arranging insurance, disconnecting and connecting utilities, hiring a removalist or truck, and arranging storage. Other services being planned for the near future include home services such as cleaners and gardeners, trailer and mini-skip hire, purchase of packing materials, furniture and appliance purchase and rentals, renovations, painting and landscaping, and even pet transport.

In the process of creating the site, movinghome.com.au has forged links with more than 30 suppliers, including AAPT, Associated Marine Insurers, Delta Rentals, f2 Interactive Network, Grace Removals, Kennards Self Storage and Mortgage Choice.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
