Jake Removals Melbourne February Update

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.

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

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

Jake Removals Melbourne helps to keep your furniture and reminiscence alive

Some time it is not about the money but also about the nostalgic value of something that you don’t want to leave behind. As a professional furniture removal company in Melbourne we not only move things from one place to another but also advice you in a best possible way about what to disassemble and what to not. We have many stories where people don’t want to leave their childhood birthday present. Or a 20 year old wedding gift that someone doesn’t want to leave behind.

To know our efficiency and professionalism you can have a look at our customer reviews. Most of the people came to Jake Removals Melbourne by recommendation of friends and family.

After getting a lot of positive feed backs now I can recall one of them which was quite heartwarming. Where there was an entrepreneur who wants to carry a study table and a chair while he was moving from one pole of the country to another. It was a matter of great curiosity since it was seems to us that he could buy a better chair and table with this removal cost. We have asked about it with a hesitation and came to know that this table and chair was a 20 year old birthday gift given by his father. After the successful and safe delivery we got a thanks note. He was also thankful to a friend who recommended him to choose us. This kind of gestures makes us more determinant and committed.

Long Moving Job From Bayswater to Doncaster by Jake Removals Melbourne

Jake Removals Melbourne

Long Moving Job From Bayswater to Doncaster by Jake Removals Melbourne

Let’s be honest, moving to a new house is usually a stressful experience. And as a moving company, Jake Removals Melbourne has to help our clients to alleviate this stress. So when a client recently sought out our help on a moving job, we naturally tried to do so. The client lived in a four-bedroom house in Bayswater and wanted to move to a new place in Doncaster. The house was filled with furniture and had the potential to be a moving nightmare.

Before we started the move, we had to disassemble everything we could, carefully storing the screws. We then had to wrap the furniture pieces in bubble wrap to prevent any scratches and marks. While we still wrapped furniture pieces that couldn’t be disassembled, we were forced to use sliders to ease them out of the home and into the truck.

And when it came to packing items in the truck, we started with the heavy-duty ones like the couches before placing the light ones. To ensure the safety of our team and to avoid damaging the house’s surfaces we used a lot of dollies and lifting straps to move things around. Since this was an 8-hour move, we also had to drive carefully to avoid any sudden turns.

When we finally got to the Doncaster house, we still had to unpack the truck and assemble everything we had previously disassembled. While this was undoubtedly a long and tedious move, it was definitely worth it seeing the smiles on our customers’ faces. Customer promised to recommend Jake Removals Melbourne to his friends for sure.

Upright Piano Move From Frankston to Beaumaris by Jake Piano Movers Melbourne

Upright Piano Moving From Frankston to Beaumaris by Jake Piano Movers Melbourne

Moving an upright piano from one place to another is no easy feat. It requires great care and expertise; something many people lack. Fortunately, that is where professional movers like us, Jake Piano Movers Melbourne, come in – filling the gap so that you don’t have to. So when we got a call to help a client move three upright pianos from Frankston to Beaumaris, we were excited, excited that a customer would trust us so much.

The customer had just bought the pianos from a store and was eager to get them home quickly and safely. While the distance from the Frankston store to his Beaumaris home was a short one, we wanted to ensure that nothing went wrong safety-wise. First of all, our three-man team from Jake Piano Movers Melbourne carefully placed a four-wheel piano dolly under each of the pianos. This made it easy to ease them out of the store.

To ensure maximum safety, we moved them slowly into the company truck we had packed out front. Before going into the store, we had dutifully opened the back of the truck and placed a ramp between its bottom edge and the road. This is the ramp that we now used to slide the pianos into the truck. For further safety, we taped the lids over the keyboards, wrapped the pedals with plastic wrap, wrapped all sides of the pianos with heavy cloth and used padding all over them.

This ensured that they were secure and didn’t suffer any sudden movements throughout the ride. While the whole journey took only 30 minutes, as a professional piano movers Melbourne, we wanted to ensure that the pianos got the best treatment. Needless to say, the customers were elated when we delivered them safe and sound.
