What You Need To Do On the Moving Day

Removalists Melbourne

Moving day is closer, lots of things you may need to think and prepare. Jake Removalists Melbourne gives you some tips you need to know couple days before moving day.

1-4 Days Before Moving:

• Make a schedule or action plan for the day of the move.
• Drain fuel from lawn mowers and discard any hazardous or flammable substances which could prove dangerous during the moving process.
• Make sure essential tools are handy (screwdrivers, tape, vacuum cleaner, etc.).
• Pack a bag for water bottles, pen/paper, snacks, documents, and essentials.
• Set aside boxes/items that you have decided to move yourself.
• Clean!

Moving Day: At your old home

• Remove bedding and disassemble beds – be sure to pack bedding in your essential items box.
• Babysitter – if possible, organise to get somebody to look after the kids and pets.
• Esky – have an esky and ice packs on hand to put in all the food from the fridge.
• Check off all furniture and boxes against your inventory list as they go into the moving truck.
• Bed assembly – Get the removalists to help you assemble any furniture like beds, it’s a job that you really don’t want to be doing late in the evening while everybody is exhausted and tired.
• Complete one last check of the old property to ensure nothing was left behind ( i.e.) look behind doors and in cupboards, etc.
• Leave your contact information for new residents to forward mail.
• Make sure the movers have the correct new address and you have their mobile number to contact them if there is a confusion.
• Carry all important items with you (passports, cash, other important documents, etc.).
• Lock the windows, doors and turn off the lights.
• Return keys if applicable.

At Your New Home

Before you move give your new house by Jake Removalists Melbourne a good clean before moving all the boxes over.  It’s so much easier to wipe over kitchen shelves and vacuum all the carpets while the house is empty.  Despite the showers looking clean I gave them a good clean again.

  • Verify utilities are working: Phone, Internet, Water, Gas, Electricity, Heating & Cooling
  • Organise pest control– get the pest control to spray the house the day before you moved in, then you don’t have to worry about moving any furniture later.
  • Clean the kitchen and vacuum as needed (especially where furniture will be going).
  • Assemble beds and make up beds as soon as possible.
  • Begin unpacking – start with the kitchen and bathroom and other essentials
  • Bathroom stocked– put toilet paper, hand soap, hand towel in each of the bathrooms. Shower ready – put soap and bath towels for each person in the bathrooms, after a long day you will want a nice shower.
  • Take photos of your new home– so you can take the time to look through them and be able to visualise where you want items placed before the move. This is also good for renters to have as a reference for their landlords to prevent unnecessary repair fees (as it may have been broken before moving in).
  • Don’t be too organised – unpack the boxes and place into drawers and cupboard, but don’t be too worried about it being orderly and organised, once all the boxes are unpacked you can go back when you have time and neaten it up.

June 2018

Type of service: Multiple heavy item moving into storage

Moved to Jake Removals Storage in Notting Hill

Moving items like an upright piano or a pool table can come with some unique challenges. On this day our customer Kerryn required not one but both items to be moved along with a motorbike and various other items creating a not so ordinary move. Luke and Kevin conquered this challenge with ease, exhibiting years of experience and skill to combat multiple steps and awkward turns with the use of well placed ramps, trolleys and coverings. Kerryn was very impressed and relieved to see her belongings treated extremely well and to also know they would be left in great hands in our secure storage facility with 24-hour surveillance. Thanks guys.

Sharing 2 Moving House Melbourne Stories From Our Customers


We always value feedback of moving house Melbourne from our customers so we can keep improving our services. It time to share two true stories from our clients.

No. One – Type of service: 4 bedroom home with a stopover

From Bundoora to Beveridge to Wallan (Department: Moving House Melbourne)

Picking up the whole family for a move from the beloved family home full of memories is typically a stressful and some what bittersweet task. Stacey and Phil were very delighted and impressed with how well our guys Rob and Jay handled the move. No job was too much for them to handle combining great time management, safety and using extreme great care with all belongings helping the family settle into their new home with ease. “Would use again”. Great work!

Moving House Melbourne

No. Two – Type of service: Few items with steep driveway and “wonky” steps

From Noble Park to Millgrove (Department: Moving House Melbourne)

“Worked hard to deliver to a very difficult location” were the words used by Sasha on this move. This was no ordinary relocation as the property came with a very steep driveway and some not so friendly wonky steps. Adding to the difficulty of the move included moving 3 full sized video arcade games which one would find some time ago sprawled across various fish and chip shops in the late 80s and 90s. Sasha was very impressed with the skill, quickness and efficiency that our very talented movers Jack and Eric displayed. Fantastic job guys.

Organize your packing


1. Make an inventory sheet with what you are packing. Get rid of the stuff not on the list.
2. Pack room by room in order to avoid confusion between your belongings when unpacking.
3. Prepare your packing materials. They can be purchased in store or ordered online. You can also ask the movers to provide you with some.
4. Do not pack valuable items, you should take them with you on moving day or place them in a deposit box for the safety.


Get a stress free moving day


1. Be thrifty, find free moving boxes. Save a little cash and get as many boxes as you need for free. Best places: the grocery and clothing stores, and warehouse style stores.

2. Create a schedule so you don’t get overwhelmed. Don’t forget to defrost, towel dry, and clean your refrigerator one to two days before moving day. Otherwise, it’ll be pretty stinky and leaky!

3. Take pictures of your electronics before unplugging. Before you disconnect them to be boxed up, take a picture on your phone or camera of the cords on the back of your television and other electronics so that you can remember where they all go! This will save you lots of time when you set it up again.

4. How to pack jewelry? You can use egg cartons to easily transport your jewelry and tape them shut therefore nothing falls out! You can also use toilet paper rolls for packing necklaces or loose bracelets. Just put one end through the roll and fasten the clasp.



Plan Your Moving


Planning tips:

Six weeks from move day:
Inform landlord/estate agent of your moving date

Start packing up non-essential items
Cancel any regular deliveries (magazine subscriptions etc) and inform companies of change of address
Organise parking for you/your removals company at both homes

Have your post redirected and inform family and friends of your new address
Defrost your fridge and freezer
Organise key collection
