• Can I keep costs down by helping with the furniture removals?

Jump on in!! You can help our removalists as little or as much as you like. The faster the move, the more you save!

• How much notice do you need for the booking?

You can book for same day service if you like. However, the more notice you give us the more likely we will be available at the time that you require a furniture removalist. One to two weeks’ notice is standard.

• How long will the move take?

This depends on a number of factors including, the nature and number of the items to be moved, the access (eg stairs or lift) at either end of the move and how close we can park the truck to your front door. As a rough guide:
One bedroom: 2 to 3 hours
Two bedrooms: 3 to 4 hours
Three to Four bedrooms: 5 to 6 hours
Rest assured that our professional furniture removalists always aim to move you as efficiently and safely as possible.

• When and how do I pay?

You can pay by cash, visa or master card. All payments must be made immediately at the completion of each furniture removals job. A $10 fee applies to all credit card transactions.

• Why does Jake Removals charge by the hour for furniture removals?

Charging by the hour results in a cheaper price. Sales people from other companies calculate a fixed price based on the estimated MAXIMUM time each part of your move will take. They always allow for additional time, so fixed prices are costed to the maximum time your move may take.
