Moving Heavy Furniture without Breaking the Bank | Jake Removals

Furniture Removals

Moving heavy furniture can be a nightmare, especially if you do not have a plan. Jake Removals and Storage have come up with some tips to help you with your next move on a budget.

Hiring a removalist company does not have to be costly. We offer affordable services for your moving needs, from furniture movers to pool table movers.

Moving Heavy Furniture

Many people do not know where to start when they decide to move heavy furniture on their own. Why not consider a removalist company instead? There are several advantages associated with hiring one

  1. You will be less stressed. It is our job to lessen the burden on moving. On your moving day, you will be attending to more important matters such as looking after your children.
  2. We know the steps of moving heavy furniture. Our movers have knowledge and over 20 years of experience to ensure that your furniture will be safely moved without damage.
  3. We have the necessary equipment that you may not consider. We offer padding and wrapping for your heavy furniture and more importantly, well-equipped vehicles such as our extensive fleet of trucks.
  4. You are less likely to get an injury. Moving heavy furniture requires multiple people and the right equipment. Hiring a removalist company, like us, removes the risk of getting hurt.

Moving Pianos

Pianos are heavy and fragile. An upright piano weighs around 130kg and a baby grand piano weighs more than 200 kilograms. There is a misconception that pianos look sturdy, given their weight. However, pianos contain strings, pedals and keys that can get damaged easily.

There are many things to consider when moving pianos on your own. You need to gather a few strong people to assist you, get the right equipment such as tape, straps and a moving dolly, move the piano into the moving truck, secure it inside the truck and remove it from the truck. Sounds tedious, doesn’t it? Why not hire a removalist company to save you the work and time? Sure, you will initially save some money but do you really want to cut corners on your valuable piano?

Jake piano movers ensure that your piano is carefully moved and safely packed. We offer the right equipment such as our purpose built hydraulic tailgate lifts which allow pianos to be easily moved. For added security, we provide insurance for every move and you are covered up to $50 000 and you will get public liability claims of $20 million if necessary.

Moving Pool Tables

Pool tables weigh up to 1000 kilograms. You may think moving a pool table is similar to moving a dining table, but it simply is not. It is a tricky process that involves several steps such as dismantling the pillars, loading the legs and assembling the legs. We strongly recommend hiring a removalist company to handle these aspects and avoiding the DIY approach as it may cause injury to you or damage to your pool table.

Jake pool table removalists ensure that your pool table is moved and protected using specialised equipment to avoid any damage. Our friendly removalists are highly experienced in moving your pool table. For added security, we also provide insurance for your goods and you are covered up to $50 000 and you will get public liability claims of $20 million if necessary.

With Jake Move, you’ll never have to make a second call. Mr. Dowding had previously booked another removalist for his massive move from an area located upstairs of a building in Rosanna to Amanda Addams Auctions in Kew. When they had arrived and taken a look at all of the items, they told him that they could not do it because it was too heavy for them. Amanda Addams Auctions highly recommended Jake Move to him and we received their booking shortly after.

We offered him 3 furniture removalists and a 10t truck to help him with the heavy move and the guys even carefully removed a very large marble table top down the stairs.

At last, all of the items were successfully transported to the auction shop without any damages.

Early in November, Laurent enlisted Jake Move to help her in moving houses from Mentone to Beaumaris. Laurent was previously a homeowner living in a large house in Mentone, moving only a short 4.5km away. The whole move spanned only an estimated 10min drive. However moving houses can be a stressful ordeal for any homeowner with the worry of protecting your precious household items and furniture plaguing you even in your dreams. Luckily our reliable movers assured her that her items would be safe and secure in their hands.

She booked for 3 of our experienced and helpful men and a 10T truck to help with the process of her moving houses. Our guys first carefully dismantled her beds and other furniture properly so as to not damage anything pre-move. Large items such as her leather couch, big double door fridge and other items were wrapped in heavy duty blankets to ensure they would survive the move without any wear and tear. All the items were then assembled onto the truck, making sure everything was in place and no item would roll around and get damaged in the process.

After successfully packing everything neatly into the moving truck, we made the trip up to Beaumaris where Laurent’s new home resided. After arriving our movers realized that a few items she owned were too large and heavy and would not be able to fit through her new home’s front door. Luckily our expert movers identified this problem early on before trying to shove the items through the door. Instead our team moved them through the balcony to get to the upstairs or her new home. In no time all the items were placed in her new house and Laurent was extremely pleased with our furniture removalists Mentone services

When living in your dream house – or any house for that matter – it’s easy to get carried away with filling up your personal space with a truckload of furniture…and honestly, a whole bunch of other stuff! That’s why when Lily reached out to Jake Move for moving services, she was somewhat concerned about the amount of stuff that needed moving. The Jake Move team, however, assured the client that she was going to witness the best furniture removalists Glen Waverley had ever seen.

Part of Lily’s belongings involved a giant trampoline that had been assembled a few years ago when she initially bought the house. Now here’s where the challenge kicked in: the trampoline could not be dismantled, which meant the movers had to consider carrying it from the backyard, around the house to the front yard where the truck was located. This is where the second problem kicked in. The pathway leading from the back to the front of the house was covered by roof, rendering it physically impossible to take that route.

Ultimately, it was decided that the trampoline was going to be lifted and carried over the house – by no means any easy feat. But this is where Jake Move thrives. Well-prepared for any kind of job, and the technical know-how to solve these types of issues, the guys found a way to pull it off.Lily was truly impressed by the professionalism and level of commitment the team had shown her. It was easy to see why Jake Move has a reputation for being the best furniture removalists Glen Waverley had to offer.

If you require the professional services of the best removalists Melbourne has to offer, contact Jake Move for storage and removal services. Not only reliable and efficient, Jake Move likes to do things the right way. Since lifting and moving heavy equipment can put quite a strain the human body, it’s important to address the right safety precautions from the get-go.

Part of guaranteeing efficiency in the removals process comes down to the safety procedures that are undertaken by all Jake Move professionals – and it doesn’t have to apply to just storage and removal jobs. If you’re interested in more information on workplace safety, visit WorkSafe Victoria.
