Jake Removals Melbourne February Update

Jake Removals Melbourne

Jake Removals Melbourne February Update

The month of February has been extremely busy and exciting with the final month of Summer coming to an end and hundreds of new and existing customers requesting to move before the colder Autumn months begin in March.

During this unusual time due to Covid-19 we thought Jake removals Melbourne would advise some reminders of steps we are taking and advising customers to take to keep everyone as safe as possible during this time as this is our highest priority.

With the roll out of the vaccine the world will hopefully be back to “normal” within the year but until then we do need to continue our safety measures.

Limiting interaction is encouraged at the moment, so while you can still expect the same high level of customer service from our removalists that Jake removals Melbourne is known for, you can also expect some small changes.

These include our staff refraining from shaking hands and maintaining a safe distance from you and each other throughout the move, in accordance with recommended social distancing practices. Our removalists do travel with and use hand sanitiser throughout each move, in addition to using essential personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and face masks.

Other steps you can take, though not required, include:

  • Limiting the number of people in the house on move day, ideally to just one responsible person, aside from our removalists.
  • Having your own pen close at hand for any documentation you may need to sign.
  • Providing our removalists with access to a washroom or bathroom, so that they can regularly wash their hands throughout the move, in addition to using the hand sanitiser they all travel with.
  • Either move all boxes into a single room close to the entrance our removalists will use, or moving them into a single space within each room. This helps speed up the actual move, while also limiting unnecessary movement through your home.
  • Provide our removalists with floor plans for each room in your new home, showing where they should place the boxes or specific furniture items when offloading your belongings.

Note that none of the steps listed above are required for house moves taking place during coronavirus restrictions on movement and interaction, but they can make the move a little easier and safer for everyone involved.

If we all play our part we can get through this safely together with the least amount of disruption to our lives and those around us.

We look forward to providing more excellent service and many more moves in the cooler months ahead.

Jake Removals Melbourne Cares Our Customer’s Stuff Very Much

Removals Melbourne

Jake Removals Melbourne Cares Our Customer’s Stuff Very Much

Of all the things we are known for, professionalism is at the very top. When we’re doing a move, our team not only arrives at your home on time but we are also very gentle with your belongings. Case in point, although in our latest escapades we had to move a client with a ton of furniture, we were extremely successful.

And this client really did have it all; huge couches, big cabinets, and even a piano to boot. While we would be lying if we said it wasn’t a bit stressful, we handled it all in stride. First of all, Jake Removals Melbourne went over to the client’s home and took a thorough inventory of all that had to be moved. And after fully understanding what we were dealing with, we sent them a detailed quotation.

Once we were in agreement about all logistical aspects of the move, we started our preparations, assigning a team of 4 movers to the case. On the day of the move, the team arrived early in the morning and began loading the vans, starting with the bulky furniture first.

To make things easier, we used dollies, sliders and ramps, especially when moving the piano. Moreover, we used plastic wrap, heavy cloth, bubble wrap, and padding to farther protect the furniture from any sudden shock during the trip. And as if that wasn’t enough, we made sure to carefully store together all parts of the furniture pieces that we did manage to disassemble, especially the screws.

Since we also had to drive very carefully to avoid sudden movements, we were really glad to reach the client’s new home in just over 4 hours. And if his glowing feedback is to be trusted, the customer was really happy too.

Customer Moved For Doing Home Renovation In Glen Waverley

Jake Removalists Melbourne

Customer moved for doing home renovation in Glen Waverley

In our years in the moving business, we have worked with a variety of clients. Apart from those who simply need to move from one house to another, we have also worked with those who need their belongings moved into storage so that they can renovate. Whatever the case though, we have always risen to the challenge.

In fact, we just recently facilitated a successful renovation move. Our client wanted to do a home renovation in Glen Waverley by 5J Building Group and needed to get their belongings removed beforehand. After thorough consultation between us and the client, we agreed to move the house items to a nearby store location.

Together with the client, we then took inventory of everything that needed to be moved and created a checklist. Afterwards, we presented the client with a detailed price estimate that they promptly approved. As agreed, on the day of the move, we arrived on site early in the morning and helped with packing before we loaded the items into the truck.

To ensure that delicate items were safe and secure while in transit, we wrapped them in bubble wrap and some padding. And when it came to moving large items like couches, we used doilies and sliders. Ultimately, while it was quite a hassle packing the items and loading the truck, it was done quickly and efficiently.

By the time we got to the storage unit, everything was still intact and undamaged, even though the unpacking process. Needless to say, the customer was so pleased that they promised to hire us again once the renovation was complete!

The Summer month of January has been great for the team here at Jake Removals

Jake Removals Melbourne

The Summer month of January has been great for the team here at Jake Removals

We have welcomed hundreds of new and existing customers moved through January, through the stormy rainy torrential Summer days to the scorching heat and sometimes the hurricane like winds which for Victoria is standard.

We have also recruited new staff members throughout the month to assist with our moves as the company continues to grow in popularity through word of mouth by our extremely happy new and existing loyal customers.

We feel extremely lucky and blessed to be part of such a great team and to also be involved in an industry which has seen very little impact though the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout this time we continue to gladly adhere to the safety guidelines provided by the Victorian Government to ensure all staff members and customers are as safe as possible during this everchanging and unforgettable moment in history.

We also continue to evolve our online booking and phone systems, trucks and work place protocols to ensure we are at the top of our game to guarantee we can operate as best as possible and offer the highest level or customer service.

Occasionally we have had to adapt the working environment like many to between the office and from home on multiple occasions which provided some interesting challenges but nothing we could not handle.

My personal challenge highlights would be my two small dogs deciding to bark and chase each other throughout the house during an important phone call or my partner deciding to make a coffee on the noisy espresso machine whilst having a loud conversation oblivious to me working.

With a roll out of an always controversial new vaccine we hope that will bring back some much needed normality to the world and look forward to the months ahead assisting many people with their home, business, office or very small single or few item moves here at Jake Movers Melbourne.

Jake Removals Melbourne helped a customer moving within a very tight timeframe

Jake Removals Melbourne helped a customer moving within a very tight timeframe

There is nothing quite as stressful as having to move suddenly. It is still really difficult to just up and leave like that. Fortunately, that is where we come in. Due to our years of moving experience, we can help you have the most seamless transition, even on short notice.

We even recently handled such a case; a customer called us looking to move the very next day. And while it was last minute, we were successfully able to pull it off. Immediately we got the call from the customer, we asked them to make a quick checklist of the items to be moved.

Also, we got one of our move coordinators to take the client through the step-by-step process of preparing for the move and to ensure that their needs aligned with what we could offer. This was just to ensure that we were on the same page expectations-wise.

While we were fully booked at the time, we managed to squeeze in a couple of vans and a team to facilitate the move for the next afternoon. If there was one thing that worked out for us though, it was that the customer didn’t have a lot of belongings. So by the time the team got to their home, they packed most things.

As such, the van was locked and loaded in a matter of minutes. And guess what? We got to the new house so fast that we had enough time to help with the unpacking. Needless to say, the customer was quite pleased with Jake Removals Melbourne and gave us a 5-star review on Word of Mouth

Popular Questions About Removals During Melbourne COVID-19 Lockdown

removals melbourne covid-19 faq

Is house moving essential?

Currently Yes, Removalists are considered an ‘essential service’ under freight & logistics definitions by each State Government and you are able to move your goods either locally or interstate in Australia. Government information states that those with more than once residence “can choose which one to be your principal residence and then must stay there for the stay at home period”.

Can I move interstate during covid-19 restrictions?

Most Australian states and territories have various border control measures in place, with some enforcing mandatory quarantine periods or turning people back if they don’t have a good enough reason to be entering the state.

Unless you’re classified as an essential traveller (and you’ll need documents to back that up) you may be subject to 14 days quarantine paid by the state(each state is different) or possibly out of your own pocket.

You can apply for an exemption that classifies you as an essential traveller, but there are conditions attached to that.

For more information Please refer to DHHS website.

Should I hire removalists or get friends to help when moving a house?

You can only assist someone in another household(friend or family) or vice versa with moving house where care and support is required due to age, infirmity, disability, or because of their health.

Hiring removalists is the safest and easiest option for house moving during stage 4 if possible.

Is house moving stressful?

Moving house is stressful enough, but with stage four COVID-19 restrictions in place in Melbourne, spanners you never knew existed have been thrown into the works especially with the prospect of a $1,652 on-the-spot fine for breaking stage four rules.

We have comprised a list of some helpful moving house tips when moving to help ease the stress.

What are house moving costs?

Moving home can come with a variety of expected and unexpected costs depending if you are renting, purchasing or renovating a home.

Costs can include packing material fees, building fees, furniture removalists, professional cleaners, lawn and garden care, painting, utilities(phone, waster, power) and possibly higher grocery food bills why you arranging the move as you may be eating takeaway/delivery during this time.

It is also a good idea to increase your bottom line amount to make sure you have extra money reserved for unexpected costs or higher fees than anticipated.

How much does it cost to move a house in Melbourne?

Moving homes within Melbourne and or Victoria can vary depending on your needs.

If you are moving a small 1 bed home or a large 4 bed family home for example will understandably have varying costs which will also vary depending on the pickup and delivery locations.

Small House Moving From Longwarry North to Ringwood by Jake Removalists Melbourne

  • Brett called our office to discuss his upcoming move. He was a new customer and we were happy to help.
  • Brett was looking for assistance to move from his Longwarry North 2 bedroom single storey home which is a rural suburb of Victoria to Ringwood which is closer to the hustle and bustle of busy Melbourne.
  • Brett advised that we had your standard household furniture, beds, side tables, dressers, sofas, white goods, dining and between 15-20 boxes.
  • Once we gathered all the information provided we settled on our 6T truck. The 6t is perfect for your standard 2 bedroom home or for a large 1 bedroom home or small office relocation.
  • The 6T comes fully equipped with high quality furniture blankets, plastic wrapping, dolleys, trolleys and the all important hydraulic lift which is capable of lifting items in excess of 1 Tonne.
  • Our team for this move was the amazing Robert and Ray. Robert is one of our more experienced if not the most experienced furniture mover we have at Jake Removals.

Small House Including 8 ft Pool Table Moving From Doncaster East to Park Orchards

Movers Melbourne

8 foot Pool Table Moving From Doncaster East to Park Orchards by Jake Movers Melbourne

  • Lissy was a returning customer looking to move her large 3 bed room home once again.
  • Previously we had moves Lissy the year before from Doncaster East also to Doncaster East to her home where she was currently living.
  • As we had moved Lissy before we were more than confident in the size of truck required and also the estimated time frame for this move.
  • With this move however she had the addition of a large 8 foot slate top pool table and also some other large than usual items which take great expertise and also extreme care when moving due to the nature of the items.
  • With this is mind we decided to use our largest of the trucks which is our 10T, perfect for moving large 3 bedroom homes to 4 bedroom homes.
  • Lissy also opted this time to go with 3men for the job which is highly recommend when moving very heavy and large items as furniture removal is already very physically straining on the movers bodies so the additional man does help to ensure a smooth move.
  • Our team for Lissys move this time was James, Karl and Eddie. All very strong men and nationally diverse which is always great. James born and bred in Australia, Karl from France and Eddie from Japan. All great guys that work extremely well together and enjoy assisting out customers to the best of their ability.
  • The guys moved everything with extreme care and efficiency, making great use of all equipment available to them from the furniture blankets, plastic wrapping, dolleys, trolleys and the hydraulic lift.
  • With the Pool table that requires a specialised custom made trolley. The legs are dismantled from the pool table and the slate top is wrapped and placed on its side on the trolley and wheeled onto the lift and into the truck. Without the availability of the pool table trolley it would take at least 5-6 people to move a pool table due to the weight which can range from 250-300kgs.
  • Lissy was once again very impressed by the skill and professionalism of our workers and left us with a great 5 star review.
  • “Awesome guys. Very nice and accommodating. Took care of items. Highly recommend.”
  • Great to have a returning customer and another outstanding move performed by our exceptional workers, great work and another satisfied customer happy to recommend our services to anyone seeking Furniture and Pool table movers in Melbourne.
