Quick and steady- Jake Removals & Storage Melbourne

quick-and-steady-jake-removals-melbourne

Since the onset of Covid-19, road speed restrictions have increased. However, this hasn’t affected the quality of the moves we undertake. While it has been a challenge, we have consistently managed to come out victorious.

So when we were recently approached by a client who wanted to move from Lakes Entrance to Melbourne, we were sure we could handle it. We quickly sent an inventory for the client to fill and sent them a quotation thereafter. Because the client lived in a tiny one-bedroom apartment and had few items, we concluded that 2 movers would be enough for the move.

On the day of the move, they arrived bright and early, with all their moving tools in hand. They quickly took apart the client’s furniture and wrapped it up in wrapping paper and blankets, making sure to safely transport it to the trucks. Once all the packing and loading was over, they hit the road.

Ultimately, the journey was smooth, despite the increased road speed restrictions. In fact, the movers arrived earlier than they had expected and finished unpacking with a lot of time to spare. Not only were the movers professional and efficient, but they were also friendly with the client, creating a rapport that has endured to date.

It’s therefore not surprising that the client not only gave us a 5-star review but also recommended his friends and family to us.

Moving Home With Pets – Jake Removals & Storage Melbourne

moving-home-with-pets

Having a pet is a lot of work – in many ways it’s like having a child. As such, we understand how important it is to hire movers that care for your pets. Fortunately, we are those types of movers – we ensure that both your belongings and pets reach their new home safe and sound.

So when a client recently approached us to move her stuff and cat into a new house within Melbourne, we were eager to help. Our staff members arrived at the 2-bedroom house on time and started packing and loading her furniture and appliances into our trucks. And since she had done some packing by herself, things moved rather swiftly.

In fact, the only processes that took a significant amount of time were taking apart the furniture and properly wrapping large appliances. Otherwise, everything else was a breeze. Even convincing the stressed-out cat to get into its cage wasn’t that hard. And since the client was simply moving from one region of Melbourne to another, the journey was quick and stress-free.

Not only did the movers reach the destination early and unpack quickly, but the cat got there safely as well. Since then, the client has given us a 5-star review and has hired us again and again. Beyond that, they have referred us to several of their friends and family members.

When Duty Calls – Top Class Furniture Handling From Jake Removals Melbourne

Removalists Melbourne

If there’s one thing that makes us stand out from other movers, it has to be our attention to detail. No matter how many things you want to move, Jake removalists Melbourne will ensure that every little one will arrive safely and quickly – even your plants will be grateful.  So when we recently got a call from a client looking to move his family from one 4-bedroom house to another, we were sure we could handle it.

First of all, we went over to their house and helped them take inventory of all the stuff they were moving. While we would ordinarily just send over a checklist for a client to take inventory themselves, we felt that the size of the move warranted an extra pair of eyes. So we sent over a team member to handle that.

After setting the date and time of the move with the client, we organised a team and ensured we had allocated enough trucks for it. Once the day of the move arrived, our team members arrived on time and started carefully packing the client’s items into the truck. This involved taking apart large pieces of furniture, using doilies to move things around, and wrapping everything in blankets or wrapping paper.

They also ensured that everything was arranged properly in the truck to avoid breakage. Needless to say, by the time we finished our 4-hour journey to the client’s new place, everything was intact. In fact, the client was so pleased with Jake removalists Melbourne’s services that they referred their friends to us.

When Covid Strikes – Quick Response From Jake Removals Melbourne

Interstate-Removalists-Melbourne

Since the onset of COVID-19, everyone’s life has changed. The way we do business has particularly changed, with a lot more attention being paid to hygiene and health. As such, it is now commonplace for employees to be unavailable on short notice, forcing businesses to be flexible and adaptable in ways they wouldn’t have to before.

For instance, a key member of the operations team can suddenly test positive for COVID-19, leading them to get quarantined or even hospitalized. Alternatively, they could unwittingly have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, forcing them into isolation and mandatory testing.

Case in point, we recently had a team member miss moves because of a COVID-19 related case. This particular team member had unknowingly had dinner in the same restaurant as someone who ended up testing positive for COVID-19, classifying them as a close contact. As such, they couldn’t show up the next day for moves and had to stay home until they got a negative test.

However, all was not lost – our admin team responded swiftly. They quickly organized a backup team to do all the moves for the day, effectively avoiding any delays. This is a testament to the fact that we have an organized and highly competent team. Our staff is highly communicative and collaborative.

Ultimately, they have each others’ backs and are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that all our clients’ moves go safely, smoothly, and on time.

Moving a piano by professional movers from Jake Removals From South Melbourne to Cranbourne

piano-movers-melbourne

Whether you are a piano enthusiast or even a music teacher, moving your upright piano is not something you should leave to just anyone. Since these instruments can weigh up to a thousand pounds and have thousands of moving parts, they can easily be damaged during a move. As such, you need to hire professionals like us who will ensure that they reach their destination in one piece without costing you a fortune.

Over the years, we have moved several upright pianos and have developed quite a knack for it. All our staff are trained on how to safely move even the heaviest upright pianos and are always looking for opportunities to do so. So when a customer hired us to move their piano from South Melbourne to Cranbourne, we were ecstatic.

We arrived at the premises early and began working immediately. First of all, we checked on the doors and passages to ensure that nothing would nick or obstruct the piano as we moved it outside. Secondly, we taped the lid over the piano and wrapped its pedals using plastic wrap.

Thirdly, we used heavy blankets to pad it on all its sides. Afterward, our 4-man crew lifted it onto the doily and rolled it to the truck outside. All this preparation was done to make sure that the piano would be safe during the entire journey, no matter what bumps were encountered along the way. And it worked – the piano got to Port Melbourne safely and in time.

Sharing Two Moving Cases in June 2021

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

Movers Melbourne

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.

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.
