Tips

For some quick and easy Do’s & Don’ts when moving read below:

 

Do:

  • Pack items you will need upon arrival in a box and place in your car eg medications, phone-charger, keys
  • Check the manufacturer’s instructions for moving appliances such as washing machines & fridges
  • Furniture you purchased in a box inc Ikea & Freedom needs to be dissembled and packed in a box before moving.
  • Empty all petrol powered items safely. BBQ gas cylinders need to be purged by an authorised dealer.
  • Wash all garden tools of soil if travelling interstate and check which plants can be taken
  • Keep cleaning equipment apart so you can clean when the removalist has gone
  • Inspect the house thoroughly before leaving for the last time
  • Pack everything that fits in a box into a box before the day of your move.
  • Disassemble beds, take pictures off walls, wrap-up cords etc – the more you are prepared the less time the move will take and the lower the cost to you.
  • Advise us of hazards such as damaged or fragile furniture, broken stairs or impediments which may affect the move.
  • Do whatever you can to reserve parking for the removal truck. The further we have to walk to the truck the longer it will take and the more it will cost.

Don’t:

  • Don’t leave your packing till the day before
  • Don’t leave any articles you don’t want packed in the house
  • Don’t hover around the removalist and offer suggestions
  • Don’t leave dirty dishes or dirty clothing unattended
  • Don’t leave food in the fridge
  • Don’t insist on the workmen packing your things the way you want it done
  • Don’t pack your wallet, passport or airline tickets!
