Small House Moving From Kensington to Essendon West By Jake Movers Melbourne

Jake Movers Melbourne

Three Bedroom House Moving from Kensington to Essendon West By Jake Movers Melbourne

  • Rebecca contacted us via email requesting information about services we can provide for her upcoming move.
  • Rebecca advised us that she was moving from a double storey 3 bedroom home in Kensington to another 3 bedroom double storey home in Essendon West.
  • After discussing Rebeccas needs we agreed on our 8T truck which is great for moving a large 2 bedroom or standard 3 bedroom home.
  • As Rebecca was moving on a Tuesday we do offer special rates on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with any truck 6T and up starting from $100+GST per hour for 2 men which is a great bargain and can save our customers hundreds of dollars potentially.
  • Our team designated for this move was Rob and Jay. A great team who are very hard workers and have many years of experience in the furniture removal industry. They are very efficient and dedicated to providing great service and a stress free move for our customers.
  • Rebecca had your standard household furniture, bedroom items, living, dining, white goods and miscellaneous items. She did also have an upright piano which is not your standard item of furniture. Pianos do take extra care and experience to move due to the size and weight of the items. Luckily our workers are very experienced with items like pianos and pool tables.
  • Rebecca also required some items like her beds to be dismantled and reassembled at her new home which is not a problem as our trucks do also come equipped with many tools for such requests.
  • Dismantling of furniture such as beds makes a big difference in the space available in our trucks, providing more room for other items.
  • Each of our trucks comes equipped with a specially designed trolley for moving upright pianos. The specially designed trolleys combined with the trucks hydraulic lifts makes moving items like pianos and pool tables possible with only 2 strong workers required.
  • Rebeccas items were treated extremely well and all fragile items were wrapped and moved carefully, providing a stress free and easy move which we strive for.
  • Rebecca was very happy with her move and left us a great 5 star review.
  • “Very happy with the service. Rob and Jay have done a good job with care of our items. I would recommend their service.”

Small House Moving Blackburn to Brunswick By Jake Movers Melbourne

Jake Movers Melbourne

Moving from Blackburn South to Brunswick By Jake Movers Melbourne

Ronny was a customer we had originally moved a few years ago and recently contacted Jake movers Melbourne the help move his home once again as he was very pleased with our services we had provided previously. Ronny was now living in a 2 bedroom home within Blackburn South and needed assistance to move to Brunswick. Although Ronny did live in a 2 bedroom home he did not have a great deal of furniture.

The furniture consisted of the usual fridge, washing machine, dining table, sofas and few bedroom furnishings. We were very comfortable to use our 4T truck, which is perfect for our smaller moves, including 1 bedroom to minimally furnished 2 bedroom homes. The 4T truck also comes equipped with a smaller hydraulic lift and ramp access to assist with the larger items like the fridge, washing machine and sofas. The 4T 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 Ronny was Eric and Lee. They are both very hard workers and dedicated to providing an amazing and stress free moving experience for all of our customers. All items were treated very well and no damage caused to either of the furnishings, property or the workers. Another successful move for our returning customer Ronny who also gifted us with an amazing 5 star review. “The service was amazing. They were on time and fast but safe when moving the furniture. I would highly recommend Eric and Lee. Pleasant and professional.”

  • Rochelle contacted our office towards the end of June wanting to get some advice and how she would go about relocation of her 3 bedroom home from Warrandyte out to the country town of Venus Bay.
  • Rochelle advised us that it wasn’t a complete move and that she planned to move quite a few of the smaller items and some boxes before her initial move.

  • The 8T truck is great as it does come with a large hydraulic lift on the back to assist with our movers with the larger items and to help prevent any damage to the items and to our workers.
  • Our movers Melbourne team for this move was Luke and Ray. Both very experienced professional movers who are very strong, careful and enjoy helping customers like Rochelle move into their new home as moving homes can be a stressful time and they assist to make the moves as stress free as possible.
  • All items were treated with the greatest of care, including one particularly large item that was required to not only be moved between homes but also up a flight of stairs at the new residence.

The Month of July for Jake Removals Melbourne

Removalists Melbourne Month of July

The Month of July for Jake Removalists Melbourne

  • The Month of July for Jake Removals was very productive. We had a great number of bookings from new and existing clients adding to our large portfolio and happy customers within Australia.
  • July being the middle of winter can bring with it some challengers when it comes to the somewhat unpredictable weather of Victoria as most who live in this state would know.
  • Most people prefer not to move during the winter months for obvious reasons, however most people also do not typically get to choose when they are able to move due to home settlement dates, landlords moving back into their homes or a variety of many other unforeseen circumstances.
  • Luckily for our customers our workers at Jake Removals are more than prepared for what mother nature brings, whether it is raining one day then sunny the next or 5 constant days of icy winds, hail and rain which we did unfortunately receive this July.
  • Suited up in extra weather proof clothing and armed with plenty of plastic wrapping and furniture covers our workers bravely face the harsh winter months to give our customers the same excellent and professional service they would expect any day of the year.
  • As most people would understand furniture removal is a very physically demanding job and it is during our winter months when the weather can also take a toll is where the determination, professionalism and hard work our movers provide is appreciated more than ever to provide our customers with stress free and the best service possible.
  • With our excellent service also comes with it the rewards or our ever growing 5 star online reviews and personal comments from our clients which is greatly appreciated and helps grow the company to be bigger and better.
  • We look forward to the following month and to the end of winter and say hello and welcome the much warmer days of spring.

Two Days Interstate Move From Seaford SA to Traralgon VIC

Interstate Removalists Melbourne

2 Days Interstate Removals by Jake Interstate Removalists Melbourne

  • Daryl was a very friendly and happy customer. We had many great conversations leading up to his move with what kind of service he required and where he was moving to.
  • Daryl was moving from Seaford in South Australia as he was selling up his home and making the long move across to Traralgon in Victoria which is around the 9-10 hour drive time for our trucks and that’s not including the stopovers for lunch and bathroom breaks.
  • At first Daryl was not too sure on the date that he would be able to move as he was awaiting settlement to go through and for anyone who has been through the house selling and purchasing process it can sometimes give an uncertain feeling waiting on banks and other parties to agree on fixed times to settle.
  • Eventually we were able to finalise a date which was Sunday 23 June and Monday 24 June.
  • Daryl had a large 3 bedroom home that he required to move and we had worked with him in coming up with an agreeable fixed rate pricing which we offer for all interstate moves due to the amount of time involved and gives a great competitive rate for our customers.
  • With our interstate moves they are generally also over 2 days due to the distance of the move and not physically being able to complete everything in one day.
  • For this move our team assigned for the day was the double Eric team, which makes it a lot easy for our customers to remember their names. They are a couple of great friends who are always happy and ready to assist our customer at the best of their ability.
  • The truck size required was our largest which is the 10T truck which carries around 53 cubic metres worth of furniture, you could possibly get away with an 8 T truck for a 3 bedroom, however with interstate moves we do need to go over to be sure that it can all fit as it is only possible to do one journey interstate with a 9-10 hour drive understandably.
  • The team of Eric’s first part of the move on Sunday 23 June was to make the quite long journey from our depot in Notting Hill to South Australia with some very picturesque views along the way.
  • It was decided that our team would travel on the 23rd June and load the truck that day also. They would then travel back to Traralgon in Victoria after a good nights rest the following day and unload Daryl’s goods that day also.
  • As per usual all items were treated with the best of care with the assistance of the hydraulic lift on the back of the truck and also thanks to a large supply of high quality thick furniture blankets, heavy duty trolleys and dolleys and also plastic wrapping if required.
  • Daryl was very happy at the end of this move with the whole process from booking through to the move and service we provided.
  • Daryl sent through a great 5 star review with these comments “Absolutely fabulous. Eric 1+2 were great value, fab, service great and will definitely recommend Jakes.”
  • Another satisfied customer who would gladly recommend our services for Interstate Removalists Melbourne

Large office Relocation by Jake Office Movers Melbourne

Office Movers Melbourne

Large office Relocation From Coburg To Derrimut by Jake Office Movers Melbourne

  • David contacted us to enquire about our services for his up-coming move. He was calling from a very well-known company Bega. As many people would know they are famous for their very popular cheese and dairy products.
  • As one could imagine the size of their office was quite substantial and would take quite a large amount of time.
  • That’s where our professional services and hard workers come into play.
  • As the office contained between 20-30 people each with their own desks, filing cabinets and other miscellaneous items along with your standard office furniture and electronic equipment it would take more than one day.
  • Our solution to this move was to have two teams of 3men each for the first part of the move which would be on Thursday 13 June.
  • Each team would also have a 10t truck which is our largest with a hydraulic lift and complete with trolleys, dolleys and high quality furniture blankets.
  • Jake Office Movers Melbourne workers for the first part of the move were. Team 1: James, Karl and Eddie and team 2: Robert, Jay and Tylor.
  • All very experienced furniture removalists who pride themselves on outstanding customer service and work ethic. They all do bring their own individual style of work and personalities to make for a great and diverse working environment.
  • As we did have two teams on site that day they both decided to split the move into two sections where one team took care of a certain area of the property and the other team handled the other section to keep the move organised and on schedule.
  • The move did also involve quite a large amount of dismantling of desks and cabinets and storage units which is to be expected with any office move as many of the desks once assembled are to large to fit through the doors as they are.
  • At the end of the first move our teams had done an amazing job clearing out and moving the majority of the office to their new premises.
  • The following day on 14 June our Team of Robert, Jay and Tylor continued moving the remaining items.
  • All items were treated with he best of care from dismantle to the move to reassemble at the new premises.
  • David and his co-workers were extremely happy with the outstanding work provided by our staff and would gladly recommend our services to anyone looking for Office Movers Melbourne.

What You Need To Do On the Moving Day

Removalists Melbourne

Moving day is closer, lots of things you may need to think and prepare. Jake Removalists Melbourne gives you some tips you need to know couple days before moving day.

1-4 Days Before Moving:

• Make a schedule or action plan for the day of the move.
• Drain fuel from lawn mowers and discard any hazardous or flammable substances which could prove dangerous during the moving process.
• Make sure essential tools are handy (screwdrivers, tape, vacuum cleaner, etc.).
• Pack a bag for water bottles, pen/paper, snacks, documents, and essentials.
• Set aside boxes/items that you have decided to move yourself.
• Clean!

Moving Day: At your old home

• Remove bedding and disassemble beds – be sure to pack bedding in your essential items box.
• Babysitter – if possible, organise to get somebody to look after the kids and pets.
• Esky – have an esky and ice packs on hand to put in all the food from the fridge.
• Check off all furniture and boxes against your inventory list as they go into the moving truck.
• Bed assembly – Get the removalists to help you assemble any furniture like beds, it’s a job that you really don’t want to be doing late in the evening while everybody is exhausted and tired.
• Complete one last check of the old property to ensure nothing was left behind ( i.e.) look behind doors and in cupboards, etc.
• Leave your contact information for new residents to forward mail.
• Make sure the movers have the correct new address and you have their mobile number to contact them if there is a confusion.
• Carry all important items with you (passports, cash, other important documents, etc.).
• Lock the windows, doors and turn off the lights.
• Return keys if applicable.

At Your New Home

Before you move give your new house by Jake Removalists Melbourne a good clean before moving all the boxes over.  It’s so much easier to wipe over kitchen shelves and vacuum all the carpets while the house is empty.  Despite the showers looking clean I gave them a good clean again.

  • Verify utilities are working: Phone, Internet, Water, Gas, Electricity, Heating & Cooling
  • Organise pest control– get the pest control to spray the house the day before you moved in, then you don’t have to worry about moving any furniture later.
  • Clean the kitchen and vacuum as needed (especially where furniture will be going).
  • Assemble beds and make up beds as soon as possible.
  • Begin unpacking – start with the kitchen and bathroom and other essentials
  • Bathroom stocked– put toilet paper, hand soap, hand towel in each of the bathrooms. Shower ready – put soap and bath towels for each person in the bathrooms, after a long day you will want a nice shower.
  • Take photos of your new home– so you can take the time to look through them and be able to visualise where you want items placed before the move. This is also good for renters to have as a reference for their landlords to prevent unnecessary repair fees (as it may have been broken before moving in).
  • Don’t be too organised – unpack the boxes and place into drawers and cupboard, but don’t be too worried about it being orderly and organised, once all the boxes are unpacked you can go back when you have time and neaten it up.

What You Need To Do and Plan 2-4 Weeks Before Your Moving

Removalists Melbourne

The actual moving day is getting closer. Jake Removalists Melbourne recommend you some tips which can be planned 2 to 4 weeks before the moving.

 

• Finalize moving transportation and make necessary arrangements (i.e. helpers).
• Schedule disconnection / connection of utilities at old and new home:
• Phone, Internet, Water, Gas, Electric- have a few spare light bulbs on hand just in case. Strangely some people take them when moving
• Discontinue any delivery services, automated payment plans and local memberships (i.e. gym).
• Change your contact details with various service providers (banks, licence, insurance, lawyer, etc.).
• If you have a pet you must change/update its registration with your council.
• Organize contents insurance if you don’t already have any.
• Create an inventory list of items (furniture, boxes etc) to use as a check list on moving day.
• Begin packing non-essential items. You can buy some packing material form Jake Removalists Melbourne if needed.
• Label boxes by room and contents (bathroom, kitchen, laundry, etc.) -get the removalists to put the boxes directly into the room labelled on the box, this will help make the unpacking process more manageable.
• Identify valuable items to transfer separately – label as DO NOT MOVE.
• Create an essentials box to keep with you on the day of your move and the first couple of days of moving so you don’t have to search through and open all of the boxes.
• clean bed linen for each bed, toilet paper, paper towel, snacks, water, cups, coffee, all-purpose cleaner, bin liners, scissors, paper plates, hand soap, tools to help you assemble items, toiletries, medication, such as pain relief, first aid kit, you may need a Band-Aid or two, tissues, pet supplies, dustpan, kitchen sponge, detergent for dishes, corkscrew/bottle opener
• Store valuable items like jewellery and legal documents at the bank / or in a safe place while moving.
• Confirm the time of settlement with your Lawyer/Conveyancer if buying.
• Contact a cleaning service, if you are using one, to ensure they are available on moving day.
• Arrange time off work if possible for moving day.

Additional tips if you are renting

  • Formally notify your landlord or property manager of the date you’re vacating the premises.
  • When moving out of a rental property, you may need to steam clean your carpet, and ensure the property is returned in a satisfactory state.
