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.

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.

If you are looking for affordable removalists in Melbourne without breaking the bank, please contact Jake Removals and Storage at 1300 766 658 or 0433 955 908. Alternatively, you can email info@jakemove.com.au to receive a quote.

Organize your packing

moving-home-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

Moving-Home-pic

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.
