Moving from Reservoir to Berwick In The Rain By Jake Removalists Melbourne

Removalists Melbourne

A large part of life’s novelty lies in its unpredictability – its ability to change in a second. But this doesn’t go down so well when it comes to the weather, especially when you are in Melbourne. This is the worst time for you to even see a hint of rain. Fortunately, Jake Removals Melbourne is usually prepared for such unexpected circumstances.

For instance, our Melbourne removalists recently successfully moved a customer from Reservoir to Berwick in the rain. Both we and the clients had counted on it being a sunny day when all hell broke loose. Fortunately, we always pack a lot of moving blankets and plastic wrap with us.

As such, it was easy for us to adequately wrap the client’s belongings in a way that made them waterproof. What’s more? We used some of the moving blankets to line the house’s doorway so that we could move in and out without getting water everywhere.

But what really helped us was the fact that we had enough staff onsite to make it possible for some to permanently stay outside and others permanently inside. This way, those who were inside could quickly pass items to the ones outside without much back and forth.

Also, Jake Removals were lucky in that the client’s compound had a sheltered area where we could pack the truck and quickly load it without having to be in the actual rain. All these factors combined ensured that all the client’s property remained clean and dry throughout the loading process.

And even when we were on the move, we were not worried about any leakage since our trucks are usually fully waterproof and regularly maintained. Needless to say, the client was thrilled when we safely got all their belongings to their new apartment and promptly unpacked them. Not only did he give us a good review, but he also sent a lot of referrals our way!

House moving from Ringwood to Glen Waverley

Laura required our assistance to help move herself and some friends from multiple locations into the same home. Altogether the home would make up the equivalent of a large 3 bed to 4 bed home and locations started from Ringwood, Ringwood North, Mount Waverley and moving to Glen Waverley. Due to the size of the move, we required our largest truck which is a 10T truck with 3men as there were steep driveways and many stairs involved. Our team for this move was Billy, Fan and Andrew which is another of our amazing teams with many years of experience and come from diverse cultural backgrounds. The move was completed without any issues and in great time and Laura was very pleased and left a 5-star review and stated “Amazing service. They know how to do the hard moving items up the stairs. Great people and fast. Would recommend 100%”.

Regional apartment moving from Hawthorn to Ballarat

Anthony requested our assistance to move his 1-bed apartment from the inner city suburb of Hawthorn to the Regional town of Ballarat Central as he was looking for a change of pace in life. We were more than happy to help and generally, we would use our 4T truck however as that was already booked we upgraded Anthony to the larger 8T truck for the same rate as the 4T truck to move his belongings which allowed for plenty of space and a faster move as the movers do not need to stack items in such a way to ensure all belongings fit. Our team for the day was Luke and Ken and they treated Anthony’s belongings with great care and the move was completed very promptly. Anthony was extremely happy with the move and rated us 5 stars with a review that stated “Fast, efficient, careful with our items and great communication, what more could you ask for?”.

Jake Removals June Moving Cases

Jake Removals Melbourne Update June 2021

 

Today we would like to share two furniture removal cases from our happy customers.

Customer one: Nengsy

Moving Date: 15 June 2021

Nengsy was requesting help to move her 3 bed home from Mulgrave to Ashwood. We arranged for our 8T truck for this job which is suitable for a large 2 bed to a standard 3 bed home. The truck comes with a large hydraulic lift on the back. It is suitable for all the larger belongings which included in this move an upright piano. Pianos are a specialty item that we move as it does take extra care and experience to handle. Luke and Ming are the team on the day and they are more than capable of such tasks of large and bulky items. With the assistance of the specially designed piano trolley and lift the piano was delivered in perfect condition. Nengsy was very happy with the move and left a 5 star review which stated “Professional, arrived on time and made the move without hassle.”

Customer two: Doug

Moving Date: 26 June 2021

Doug contacted us the ask for assistance in moving his 3 bed single-level home from Eltham to another single-level home in Eltham. As the move is within the same suburb we can be flexible with our choice of the truck as the distance between the properties was very minimal which allows us to make multiple trips if required. Our choice of the truck on the day was our 6T and a 2man move consisting of the team of Dan and Matthew. They are both great younger men and hard workers who work great together. The team took great care with all belongings including some fragile antique pieces. Doug was extremely happy and left a 5 star review advising “very timely, handled our items, including antiques, very careful. Courteous movers with competitive rates. Highly recommend – will definitely use again”.

Never Too Short – Moving By Jake Removals Melbourne

Removals Melbourne Case

Never Too Short – Moving By Jake Removals Melbourne

If there is one thing you should know about us, it is that we are keen on both long-distance and short-distance moves. Even if you are just moving across the street, we will ensure you have a pleasant experience. We will pack your belongings just as keenly as we do for long moves and will arrive on time for the move.

Case in point, just the other day we successfully helped a client move from one Melbourne estate to another. Even though the client’s family had a lot of belongings, the move took less than an hour. This was primarily due to our thorough preparation process. Before the day of the move, we not only visited the client’s house but also gave them a thorough checklist with all they had to do.

So by the time we arrived at their house, most of the packing was done and most of the furniture was disassembled. We sent over a team of 4 movers, ensuring that the remaining packing and truck loading only took a short time. The team also ensured that the unloading and unpacking at the destination were done swiftly and safely. They used tools like doilies, bubble wrap and wrapping paper to effectively move couches, beds, and even pianos.

At the end of the day, everything was done as efficiently as possible. The client was thrilled and even referred us to other people who were looking to move.

Interstate Moving – From Melbourne with love

Interstate Moving Melbourne

Interstate Moving – From Melbourne with love

Interstate moving can be a pain, especially when you live in a huge apartment. The packing process is usually tedious and the long journey is really tiresome. However, even in such unfavorable conditions, we can provide a pleasant moving experience. In fact, we recently did just that for a client who was seeking to move from Melbourne to Sydney.

They were moving from a 3-bedroom apartment to a slightly larger bungalow. To avoid any delays, we had to be very detailed in our processes. For one, we had to go to the client’s home and do a full inventory of their belongings beforehand. This came in handy not only with the pricing but also with planning.

Afterward, we gave the client a step-by-step rundown of the moving process and gave them a checklist of what they need to do before the move. At this point, we also agreed on the day and time of the move. On the predetermined day, we arrived early in the morning and quickly packed all the stuff in the trucks, starting with large items like furniture and home appliances.

Since we knew we had a long road ahead, we used a lot of bubble wrap and wrapping paper to keep all the items secure during the move. Ultimately, we got to Sydney in just under 11 hours, and with all the client’s belongings in one piece. The client was so thrilled that he still refers other clients to us to this day!

Moving out from Melbourne CBD – Jake Removals Melbourne

Jake Removals Melbourne Trucks

Moving out from Melbourne CBD – Jake Removals Melbourne

Successfully moving a client’s belongings from point A to point B is not always as easy as it seems. It can be a path wrought with challenges, some greater than others. One of the most common yet annoying ones is undoubtedly getting stuck in traffic. And while we would really have been grateful if we had never experienced this, like many movers, we have.

In fact, it happened only just recently. We were helping a client move out of Melbourne CBD when we encountered the worst traffic we have ever seen. In total, we spent almost 40 minutes in traffic, really throwing us off our estimated arrival time. Fortunately, we have a way of ensuring that we never complete our moves too late – over preparedness.

As a rule of thumb, we always start our moves super early and give ourselves around an hour to play with. So if we know that the entire moving process should take 2 hours, when talking with the client we give ourselves 3 hours, just in case something happens. As such, at the very worst, we are usually exactly on time.

In the past, apart from heavy traffic, this technique has helped us navigate unforeseen challenges like vehicle breakdowns and accidents. And while it may seem inconvenient for us to always be excruciatingly early, the smiles on our customers’ faces always make it worthwhile.

In the case of this move, things weren’t any different. Our client was very happy that despite what we had notified him to be a very stressful traffic situation, we managed to get his belongings moved in time. Ultimately, he provided great feedback and promised to hire us again!

Always be prepared-How does Jake Removals Melbourne deal with a hard situation

Working in the moving industry requires a lot of resilience and dedication. You need to push through and deliver results even when the odds are not in your favor. The truth is, even those who have been in this industry for as long as we have face some challenges along the way.

For instance, just a while ago, a logistical problem threatened to negatively affect a project we were working on. A client had just scheduled a move with us when something unexpected happened. On their way to the customer’s place, our team’s truck broke down, leaving them stranded on the side of the road.

Fortunately, Jake Removals Melbourne has trained all our movers on how to deal with such situations. As such, they called us immediately and we sent out another truck and team to the client’s place. While this did delay the move by a few minutes, since we always leave early anyway, the lag wasn’t that big.

As for the truck that broke down, we organized for it to be towed and repaired. Also, we ensured it got a full assessment to keep this kind of thing from happening in the future. At the end of the day, the moving team still managed to get all the client’s belongings packed, moved, and unloaded in good time.

If there is one thing that this experience taught us, it is to always be prepared. Ultimately, it is this preparedness that impressed our client and pushed them to give us a glowing review.

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

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.
