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.
  • Arrange for a property inspection to recoup the bond.

  • Eileen advised us that she would be moving from her large 3 bedroom home containing many years of collected belongings of all natures from your typical living room furniture to paintings, plants and many other miscellaneous items.
  • As an interstate move is understandably quite long and this move would be conducted over 2 days.
  • Interstate moves generally involve travelling to the pickup on the first day and loading all the items into the truck to then hold overnight and move the following day.
  • As not all the movers have the time or ability to undergo an interstate move due to other daily commitments at home it is generally a volunteer situation as to who doesn’t mind travelling the long distance and to stay overnight in another state.
  • Our team decided for this move were our very experienced movers Eric and Kevin. A great couple of guys who always go above and beyond to help any of our customers. Both reliable, hard working, friendly and strong. They have been workers with our company for many years now and have gained themselves a great reputation in the industry.
  • With the move the guys had decided to leave very early on the morning of the 4th at 7am from our depot as they had a very long drive ahead of them expecting to arrive in Canberra around 5pm.
  • Once the guys arrived they loaded everything into the 8T truck which would be perfect for your standard 3 bedroom property to guarantee it would all fit in one trip which is absolutely necessary for an interstate move.
  • This move also included a much loved upright piano which is an item that requires much more attention than your standard household item due to the size and weight and requires and specially designed piano trolley and the use of ramps for any steps at the properties.
  • The guys are very professional and use all furniture blankets, wrappings and any equipment necessary to complete the load with no damage to any item or property.
  • Once everything was loaded the guys settled in for a night in Canberra to get a good nights after a hard days work rest before the following day to complete the rest of the move.
  • The following morning the movers continued on their journey back to Victoria to Box Hill North to reunite with the customer Eileen at her new property.
  • All items were carefully placed in their new dwellings with the utmost care at the delight of Eilleen.
  • Eilleen sent us through an email afterwards stating “Thank you a lot and also your staff Kevin and Eric for the good work. I will recommend you to all my friends. I have given the best feedback wording I was able to think of. Many thanks again and kindest regards”.
  • Another great outcome and very good job completed by our amazing team of Eric and Kevin resulting in another very happy customer.

  • On this day the 6 Tonne truck was required, which we generally use for a pool table removal as it has a hydraulic lift on the back assisting with lifting heavier than usual items.
  • Luke and Jay who conducted the move are very skilled and experienced movers. They are very competent, professional and hard-working guys who love their job and helping customers move their homes and property they are also very strong which is a bonus with a move like this.
  • They use special pool table trolleys to assist with pool table removals, usually starting with dismantling and taking the pool table top off and carrying the top on its side on the specially designed pool table trolley. Some pool table tops require the tops to be separated into smaller pieces and then put back together once it has been moved to the new location.
  • They are very careful at making sure both the pool table and the properties are never damaged and use the hydraulic lift on the back of the truck to lift the pool table into the back of the truck.
  • Once at the new property the pool table is put back together and positioned to the area of the home that the customer requires.
