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.

Removals Melbourne Movers May
  • The month of May has been a very interesting time for Jake Removals.
  • As most people should be well aware that the world has changed drastically for everyday life for millions of people over the past few months due to Covid-19 which for most is most commonly known as the coronavirus which has taken over the news, media and the minds of all with quotes like “unprecedented times” and “flatten the curve”.
  • 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.
  • Staff are protecting themselves and customers by wearing hospital grade face masks, high grade hand sanitizer
  • , work gloves and they have also been disinfecting the trucks at the end of the moves to ensure the safety of all as this is paramount.
  • Our workers are also practicing social distancing with our customers and vice versa to ensure we assist in helping to stop the spread of the virus and continue to update ourselves daily with the latest information provided by the government.
  • We will continue to strive to create great moving experiences for all customers and to ensure that the safety of all customers and staff is taken very seriously to do our part for Australia.
  • We look forward to what the future brings as we head in the cooler months of Autumn an encourage everyone to take care and to do your part.

  • 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

Jake Removals Helped A Customer (Non-profit Organization) Relocation Needs

Relocation Removals Melbourne

Jake Removals Helped A Customer (Non-profit Organization) Relocation Needs From Western Suburbs to Melbourne

  • Brodie had contacted us via phone to enquire about her services she required in which we were more than happy to oblige.
  • Brodie has become a great regular customer of ours. Her moves however consist of helping others in need through not for profit organisations in assisting them finding accommodation and to also assist with their moves.
  • We first conducted services with Brodie who works for a great organisation called Jesuit Social services back in November 2019.
  • For the past 3 months we have completed multiple home relocations for Brodie and other members of Jesuit Social Services to assist many of their customers who have needed a little help with funding for their moves.
  • Each of their moves typically is only quite small ranging between 3-4 hours at most. The moves generally also involve collecting items from storage facilities and units the company and other not for profit organisations acquire as they also provide customers with an opportunity to pick certain items of furniture and necessary belongings that they need for their new home.
  • We do also try to keep costs at a minimum as not for profit organisations do have limited funds that need to be spread for the many people requiring assistance.
  • Along with Jesuit Social services we also work with many other great organisations like Women’s Housing, Unison and Co Health.
  • These are all great companies assisting with others in need and we are more than happy to help the best we can. It does feel good to be able to assist people who have been struggling to afford accommodation, furniture, moving costs and unfortunately many do come from situations of domestic violence and all are very grateful to have been given this opportunity and for many a second chance on life.
  • Brodie and all other members of Jesuit social services and all other not for profit organisations are very happy with our work and advise all their customers have been extremely happy with their moves.
  • We enjoy being able to assist with customers of all walks of life and moves like these are additionally satisfying and we look forward to many more moves in the coming future.
