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.

New Home Buyer Moved New Purchased Furniture to Our Storage Facility

New Home Buyer Moved New Purchased Furniture to Our Storage Facility

Victoria was looking for self-storage facility because she wanted to store some new large furniture before moving to the new house. She came to us by searching “Storage Melbourne” on Google and told us her requirement over the phone. Victoria purchased a new house and supposed to move in this September. However, the settlement was delayed due the Coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, some new furniture bought which bought from overseas cannot be moved into their new house. They have now arrived and sitting in the depot to be collected. Victoria also cannot send those furniture to their existing house as it is too small. These furniture sets were all unassembled and well packed in the carton so our mobile storage boxes (1m x 2m x 2m) are really suitable for her needs.

We booked a 4T truck for Victoria to collect all big cartons from the wharf and delivered to our warehouse in Notting Hill. All her stuff perfectly filled up 3 mobile storage boxes. Our customer can hire the storage box month by month and there is no locked contract which is very flexible. Victoria was really happy with this solution and she will contact us as soon as her new house is settled. We can then book another move to deliver her furniture as well as providing un-pack service if required. She also shared this story on her social media and said will recommend Jake Removals Melbourne to her friends too.

Uni Studnet Moved to City Apartment by Jake Removals Melbourne

Mia is a Uni student and had come to us from a friend referral. She felt really confident and said she did not even check other Melbourne removalists. Her renting apartment in Melbourne CBD expired by the end of September so Mia was going to move to another bigger apartment as the renting price in CBD dropped due to the number of oversea students.

We booked a 4T truck for Mia because she didn’t have too many stuffs to move. On the moving day, our team members arrived on time however they were stopped by the apartment management staff. They were asked for special working permit during Melbourne Stage 4 lockdown. Jake Removals planned everything as soon as Stage 4 restriction has been announced, so our staff shown their working permit as well as Jake Removals’ COVID Safe Plan on our website. Everything was under control. The move was within Melbourne CBD and took around 3 hours. Mia was satisfied with our boys and left a five-star review on Google. Good Job boys!

Young Couple Moved From Mordialloc to Frankston by Jake Removals Melbourne

Removals Melbourne Townhouse

Moving From Mordialloc to Frankston by Jake Removals Melbourne

Jelena sent her enquiry through our quoting system on website. When we followed up her enquiry, she told us she found us on Google by searching movers Melbourne and checked reviews as well. She actually received three quotes and finally chose us for her moving.

Jelena and her husband are all currently working at home so their time is quite flexible. We booked the job on Tuesday morning as they can get our “Tuesday & Wednesday Special price”. This young couple and their child were moving to a 4-bedroom townhouse from their old 3-bedroom unit because they are expecting their second baby. Two properties are about 30 minutes driving distance.

We sent an 8T truck to do this job. Jelena is very organised lady as we can see most of their small stuff have been packed in boxes and well labelled. All beds had been dismantled before the boys arrived and all white goods had been undone and emptied as well. Jelena put small boxes in her own car and worked same time as us. These were all making the move easily and also saving their cost.

As everyone expected the whole process of moving was very smooth at both properties. The moving job lasted around 4 hours, Jelena and her husband were very happy with our boys and gave them tips for their wonderful works. She asked for several business cards and said she will definitely recommend Jake Removals Melbourne to her friends.

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.

Moving from Cranbourne North to Seaford by Jake Removals Melbourne

  • Tracey was a customer we had originally moved a few years ago and she had recently contacted us the help move her home once again as she was very pleased with the work we had provided previously and was happy to book our services again.
  • Tracey was living in a 2 bedroom townhouse within Cranbourne North and needed assistance to move to her new single storey home in Seaford.
  • Tracey advised us that she had a few more pieces of furniture than her previous move so we opted to go for a slightly larger truck than the last move.
  • We were very comfortable to use our 8T truck, which is perfect for 2 to 3 bedroom homes as we had previously used a 6T Truck.
  • The 8T truck also comes equipped with a larger hydraulic lift to assist with the larger items like the fridge, washing machine and sofas.
  • The 8T like the other larger trucks also has everything to protect the items from trolleys, dolleys, high quality furniture blankets and plastic wrapping.
  • Our team for the move for Tracey was Eric and Kevin. They are both very hard workers and dedicated to providing an amazing and stress free moving experience for all of our customers. They enjoy providing the best experience for all our customers.
  • All items were treated very well and no damage caused to either of the furnishings, property or the workers.
  • We were also able to keep the moving time at 3 hours which was exactly how long the previous move took but this time there were slightly more items which is great.
  • Tracey was once again very happy with the service provided and left an amazing and well deserved review and happy to recommend our services to everyone seeking House Removals Melbourne.
  • “You guys are awesome. This is the second move we have had with you and you were super quick and professional and I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting a removalist.”
