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.

  • Through this life changing time us here at Jake Removals have not been effected as much as many others around the world as we are luckily considered a much needed essential service as people are still needing to move everyday and even more so at the moment.
  • As many businesses have unfortunately had to close and many staff let go from their jobs we are lucky enough to be able to stay open and continue to provide exceptional service through these tough times.
  • February has been a very busy month as this is still considered to be part of the yearly busy period concluding the official end of summer.
  • There are many people who have homes being sold or had already sold during this time and there are also many people who are wanting to move out to rural or country Victoria due to fear of contracting the virus.
  • Our staff are very mindful of the essential health precautions recommended by the government and health officials during this time.

Moving within Rowville by Jake Removals and Storage Melbourne

  • Nicole was a brand new customer of ours. She had contacted us through our website requesting a quote for her upcoming move.
  • Nicole had advised up that she wished to move her 3 bed home from Rowville and was moving not too far away within Rowville also.
  • Nicole had advised that her home did contain the standard furnishings and items you would typically expect, so nothing out of the ordinary.
  • Given that she was moving within the same suburb it does allow for more flexibility with the truck choices as it does allow for the possibility of a second trip if required due to location.
  • We had decided on using our 8T truck for his move which is generally the perfect size for a 3 bed home, occasionally a 6T may be sufficient if quite minimally furnished or sometimes the 10T is required if the customer is quite the collector.
  • Our team for this move was Robert and Kevin. A very solid team who work very well together and are both very experienced in their work and very efficient.
  • All items were moved very carefully and no damage to property, belongings or our workers which is always great to hear as this is a very physically demanding job.
  • Nicole was very happy with her move and left a great review.
  • “On time, all our items handled with care, a pleasure to have Jake’s help us with our move.”
  • Another satisfied customer who was happy to recommend our services to anyone seeking Removals Melbourne
