The Moving Van!


Hi this is Peter Van and I’m about to become “The Moving Van”! 

I am moving house after 30 years.  Have you moved house recently? Boy, exciting and in my case a house full of stress!

My Son Scott is going to help out his Dad  so many things to sort out and don’t tell anybody (it’s just our secret). 

I haven’t begun to pack yet... Help...  Where do I Start!!!!


Peter Van: Mon to Fri: 7:00pm - Midnight

Nothing but hits for three hours, every weeknight from 7-10pm. Re-live the Classic Top 40 era of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and from 10pm to midnight, turn the lights down low and relax with some of the smoothest music ever recorded. A great way to wind down at the end of another busy day.

  • Dear Peter,
    I enjoy listening to Magic 1278 n yr choice of music.

    About shifting house - Start at the very beginning -a very good place to start.
    By the way, u must be just moving to another house.Right?

    Just imagine moving to another country after 20 years in one house - we moved from Madras (now called Chennai) to Melbourne about 10 years ago.

    • Peter, the best hint that I could give is to label every box with the contents and to pack a box with kettle, tea, coffee and biscuits. Good luck!

      • Hi Peter,

        Sounds like you've made a good start by roping in ..... errrrr .... getting your son to help. The next move is to see if there's any crystal, silver or chinaware that I may want and from then on it's up to you. LOL.

        I've moved house about 20 times (I think I must be part gypsy) so I'm pretty good at it. I'm sure you will be, too. If you need a hand, just give me a call!

          Have a give away box to local op shop a throw way box and a keeping box.
          Believe me its not easy but you will surprise yourself.
          Best wishes and enjoy your new phase in your life

          • Hi peter, I jhave moved house more times than I like to remember. The first thing I do is go around to stores and ask them about boxes that they are throwing out, They are usually great packing boxes and you don't have the expense of buying crates etc. The stores are usually really happy to have them moved. I was just think if you haven't moved for 30 years the first thing is to sort out what you really can do without and haven't used for YEARS and start packing things that could go to op shops or have a garage sale. It is amazing what is trash to you is treasure to someone else.

            Good luck Peter in your new house,

            Cheers, marion
