Three Bedroom House Moving Within Caulfield By Jake Movers Melbourne

Movers Melbourne

Three Bedroom House Moving from Caulfield South to Caulfield North By Jake Movers Melbourne

  • We first met Isaac during the relocations his daughter and daughter in laws properties about a month earlier. He was also a large part in organising their moves and they were arranging renovations to their properties and were moving items between multiple locations and storage facilities.
  • It is through the amazing work provided by our movers for these relocations that he insisted on also using our services for his personal move.
  • Isaac was living in a 3 bedroom home and required some of his items moved to a property in Glen Huntley and also to his new residence in Caulfield North.
  • As Isaac did have quite a large number of furnishings and was also delivering and collecting some items from both Glen Huntley and Caulfield North we required the use of our largest truck, the 10T.
  • The 10T is required for a large 3 bedroom to a 4-5 bedroom home and is the largest truck we have in our fleet.
  • This move also required the use of not 2 but 3 of our movers. Our team on this day was Robert, Jay and Tylor. These three men are all great workers who work very hard and well with each other. They are very efficient, professional and very friendly.
  • Amongst the usual furnishings you find in a family home, Isaac also had 2 large marble top tables which understandably come with significant weight in which the 3men were an integral part of this. With our professional and experienced movers this was a task they were very comfortable with and handled with great care and ease.
  • Another of the items was a large trampoline which required dismantle understandably as it would take up substantial space if not dismantled in the truck.
  • Isaacs move was conducted and completed extremely well and took most of the day understandably as it was not a small move. All items were delivered and assembled in the excellent condition they left the pickup address in with the use of the hydraulic lift, trolleys, dolleys, furniture blankets and the expertise of our team.
  • Isaac was more than happy to leave a 5 star review in appreciation of our hard work.
  • “We had an absolutely wonderful experience. The movers were professional, friendly and nothing was too much for them. Would highly recommend them to anyone needing movers.”

Moving out of Storage From Jake Storage Melbourne’s Facility at Notting Hill

Moving out of Storage From Jake Storage Melbourne’s Facility at Notting Hill

  • Duminda has been a customer of ours since the beginning of 2019 in January. We were first introduced as he required our services to move his home from Mulgrave into storage a couple of months while he was building his new home in Glen Iris which then turned into 6 months.
  • June came around and it was time for Duminda to move into his new home in the suburb of Glen Iris.
  • We were holding the contents of a 4 bedroom home, which is the equivalent to 4-5 of our storage units.
  • Each individual storage unit is 8 cubic metres and they are all held in our warehouse which is under 24 Hour video surveillance and can be accessed with at least a days notice anytime between 9am and 5pm weekdays and 10am-4pm Saturdays.
  • One of the larger items that we were storing for Duminda was an 8foot pool table. With pool tables they take considerable extra care due to its size and weight which averages 350kg for a slate top. As professionals we are very prepared for this item with our custom made and high-quality pool table trolley. This item turns a somewhat near impossible task for two movers into a less difficult obstacle due to its clever design which assists our movers to complete the task successfully and with no damage to the pool table or the men.
  • All items in our storage had been wrapped carefully with our high quality furniture blankets and plastic wrapping from when our movers first moved them into storage. This helps the items stay protected while in storage and during relocation to their new home.
  • During the relocation process Duminda also decided that he would not be taking all of his belongings but would be requiring the use of one unit to hold certain items until they required relocation also.
  • Duminda was extremely grateful for all the hard work our guys put into firstly moving into storage and then also relocation of his belongings and with no damage caused to any items.
  • We look forward to further assisting Duminda in the future with the relocation of his remaining belongings or storing them for as long as he needs.
  • Another satisfied customer giving a 5 star review and would be happy to recommend our services to anyone seeking Storage Melbourne

The Best Way To Pack Fragile Items For Storage – Tips From Jake Removals & Storage Melbourne

Storage Melbourne

The number one problem most people encounter with storage is damaged or broken items. Fragile ones are most at risk, and it can cause quite a headache – particularly for expensive items or those with sentimental value. Thankfully you can prevent this happening by packing fragile items properly for storage. A bit of preparation and care will prove the difference between a stress-free move and a box of broken plates. Follow tips Jake Storage and Removals Melbourne below to pack fragile items for maximum protection, stability and safety.

Collect the right packaging materials

Great protection for fragile items starts with the best packaging materials. Arm yourself with packing tape, a tape gun, newspaper and packing paper (either will do, but newspaper ink runs), bubble wrap and a permanent marker. Finally, collect yourself enough boxes to fit everything in. It’s tempting to use second-hand ones to save money, but for valuables, you should invest in new boxes. Jake Storage Melbourne recommend asking boxes with double-corrugated walls to stop your valuables being crushed in storage.

Line the box with padding

Construct your first box and use the tape gun to secure the bottom with tape. When it’s ready to go take a sheet of packing paper and use your hands to scrunch it into a ball shape. Don’t worry about making it too tight. Place it inside the box to create some padding for your fragile items. Keep making balls until the entire floor of the box is covered. You may buy packing material from Jake Storage Melbourne.

 

Wrap your fragile items

The best way to protect valuables is to wrap each one individually before packing. For extra fragile pieces, wrap with bubble wrap first and then with packing paper. Here’s a simple process to follow:
1. Find a stable bench to work from, and lay out your packing sheets flat in a pile
2. Place your first item in the middle of the top sheet.
3. Fold one corner of the sheet to the diagonally opposite corner and edge the end underneath your item. Do the same with all other sheet corners.
4. Seal the edges using packing tape.

Fill the box carefully

It goes without saying to handle fragile items with care, but the right techniques offer superior protection. Place your heavier items on the bottom. Cut your cardboard (old boxes can be used here) to create dividers, and use them to add structural support between items. Make sure you fill up all the spaces. If you’re packing dishes for storage, load them sideways for better shock absorption.

Finish and seal the box

Pack your box to the rafters, but be careful not to make it too heavy. When you’re finished, follow the same process as before to scrunch up balls of packing paper and place them on top for padding. Finally, seal the box with several layers of packing tape and finish it with a ‘fragile’ label big enough for your removalists to notice!

Follow these tips to keep your treasures safe in storage. And if you’d like the professionals to take care of it for you, check out Jake Storage Melbourne affordable packing services.

How To Declutter For Storage Before The Move – Tips From Jake Removals Melbourne

Removals Melbourne

A critical part of every big move is decluttering your house, particularly if you’re moving things into storage. Clearing your possessions reduces moving costs, decreases time and effort on move day and generally helps you feel a whole lot lighter. If you’re building a new place, renovating or just downsizing for a while, decluttering takes some much-needed weight off your shoulders. It can be very therapeutic. If you’ve got a big declutter job ahead of you but can’t decide how to approach it, follow these simple tips from Jake Storage and Removals Melbourne to declutter for storage like the best of them.

Don’t start with the wardrobe

Most people get overwhelmed thinking about where to– but often the wardrobe is the biggest mental hurdle. Instead of going for broke and attacking that first, however, get started on something easier. Try going for a less essential room like a laundry or a study to kick off the job. Once you’ve built some momentum, take a big breath and go storming into your clothes collection.

Apply the multiple rule

Do you really need that many towels, or five sets of bedding? Over time we collect multiples of household items and save them for a rainy day or when family comes to visit. However, in most cases, people tend to save way more than they practically need. Look past those multiple sets that you do need (think cutlery and kitchenware) and cull those you don’t.

One room at a time

Decluttering across the whole house leads to burnout. Approach it practically by choosing a smaller part of the house (a room or large cupboard) and commit clearing until it’s done. To save time later start loading moving boxes as you go. Only then can you move on to the next one. Try to move slowly, and identify a room or area to stack your unwanted goods. Anything in good condition you can bundle up and give to charity or sell online for some much needed moving cash.

12 months or it’s gone

This is a harsh one, but fewer belongings to move means cheap storage. Try it on anything where you need a quick keep-or-throw answer. If you’ve physically used it or thought about it sometime in the last year, keep it. If not, it’s usually a bad sign. Obviously, this isn’t the case for record-keeping like photos and family heirlooms, but it does force you to get serious about everything else.

Essentials only

We tend to purchase or hold on to items that sound practical in theory but hardly see the light of the day. Kitchens and bathrooms tend to be the biggest culprits for this. Pans, baking trays, pots and bread ovens all take up critical space. Same applies to the bathroom – soaps, creams, gels, sprays, the list goes on. Do you really need them all?

Checklist For Moving Items Into Storage

Storage Melbourne Checklist

While you’re moving house, renovating or relocating, Jake Removals and Storage Melbourne offers the perfect way to keep your stuff safe in the process. As with anything else, it’s best to plan your storage in advance and ensure every little detail is covered so nothing is left behind. By preparing correctly you’ll protect your items against damage, breakage and mould – all of which can cost more money in the long term in replacements and repairs.

What’s the best way to organise? With a storage checklist of course. Jake Removals Melbourne have 10+ years experience moving Australians, and we’ve put together the checklist below to make your move as fast, easy and stress-free as possible.

 Getting started

The first step is planning phase. Tick these boxes off 1-2 months before moving day if you can:

  • Confirm your storage items. List everything to store. Note if it’s fragile, as well as any other storage requirements.
  • Book your storage as spaces can be limited due to high demand.
  • Collect packaging materials. Purchase boxes, get your packing paper and tape ready. Pro tip – a tape gun will save you a lot of time.
  • Organise removal Call or email Jake Removals to lock in the move to storage. If storage is short term, book for the return trip as well.

 Packing Your Storage Items

 The best time to start packing is weeks before your move. Aim to get these done 2-4 weeks prior to the big day:

  • Check storage requirements. Some items can’t be stored, such as dangerous goods or foodstuffs. Review your packing list if needed.
  • Pack fragile items.Follow the right procedure to wrap and pack fragiles to prevent any damage. Label ‘fragile’ clearly.
  • Pack items in boxes. After fragiles, pack the rest of your smaller household items into strong, sturdy cardboard moving boxes.
  • Prepare your electronics. To pack electronics for storage, remove batteries and place items back in their original boxes for best protection.
  • Deconstruct furniture. Reduce your furniture to pieces if possible, and obtain some blankets or protective sheets to stop scratches and dents in transit.
  • Disconnect and drain whitegoods.Unplug your fridge, washer and dryer, and follow correct techniques for packing whitegoods to ensure they won’t produce mould.

Stack your storage area effectively

This information is useful if you are moving the items to storage yourself and would like to load the units to save on money. When moving your items into the storage unit, follow these tips for the best results:

  • Make use of every space. Maximise the space by filling every corner to make storage cheaper.
  • Place lighter items on top. Stack heavy items at the bottom to prevent crushing.
  • Mattresses on their side.Most miss this one – the best way to pack mattresses for storage are vertically. This protects the springs from damage.
  • Protect your items. Throw a plastic sheet on top of everything to protect from dripping or falling items.
  • Lock it up Padlocks are given from Jake Removals and keys can be kept in the office or given to yourself to hold onto.
