Your Move Planner
One of the most difficult things you will have to do as a client who has contacted a Sydney removalist to pack your belongings, is to trust that they will do it correctly. As you know, there are correct methods engaged in making sure furniture is packed professionally to assure your goods arrive intact. Your professional Sydney removalist will know the right method, as professional removalists they have been trained in the correct furniture relocations procedure, and this should ensure your goods will arrive in one piece. If you choose to do your own packing, you will want some helpful advice before you move. One Month before you move Pick up a change of address kit from Australia and complete. Have a look around the house and think about what you don’t want to take with you. Prepare a list of what you want moved and where. Removals Packing Materials you want • Standard Removals Cartons • Book Cartons • Tape • Packing Paper • Marking Pens • Bubble wrap, Stretch wrap Organise to pick up your important records. Pack your essential documents in one place. Two weeks before your Removals Make arrangements to disconnect utilities. Do meter readings and give new address for accounts. Organise cleaning. When you are packing yourself The fee we offer you gives you motivation to be packed-up ready and organised on the day of your move. The more organised you are on the day of the removal the quicker and thus cheaper the removalist costs will be. Some of these relocation tips may seem like common sense, but they are often forgotten during a move. If you have any questions please call us and we will assist you in any way we can. Start by packing items you do not use every day. Pack-up your boxes and stack together and ready to go. Have beds, cots, dryers, washing machines and furniture dismantled and ready to go remembering to put the bolts and fittings in a plastic bag and fasten with tape so it will be safe for when the removalist movers arrive. Tape keys in a secure place. When packing, use the correct furniture Removals Boxes as they are designed for moving. Clearly mark each Removals box, showing which room it should go. Label fragile boxes boldly so we will top load. Cloth or leather lounges should be covered with protective plastic to prevent stains or damage. Carpet and Rugs should be cleaned before the move. Remove globes and shades from all lamps. Lamp shades should be packed separately in a strong relocations box. To protect wrap them in bubble wrap. When packing use butchers paper rather than newspaper as ink makes items very dirty and dusty Glass tables and glass doors on furniture should be wrapped with stretch wrap or bubble wrap for safe transport with the other furniture. Dry and tinned foods may be moved as long as they are packed in a strong box. Food stuffs are not to be moved into storage. Hazardous materials cannot be moved or stored by the moving companies. We are not permitted to carry gas bottles on the furniture removals truck. Drawers in furniture should be cleared of heavy items. Light clothing only may be left in sturdy furniture. Appliances should be disconnected prior to your Sydney furniture removalist team arriving. Also, take down shelves, light fixtures etc if applicable. Pack biggest and heaviest items in bottom of box first. Books and other heavy items should be packed in small removals boxes. Large mirrors or pictures should be wrapped individually, covering both sides with bubble wrap or stretch wrap then fasten with tape. Items should be packed in boxes that are the proper size. If there is empty space in the box use butchers paper to fill the little gaps. Small appliances and electronics should be packed in the boxes they came in when possible. Dishes and glassware you should use butchers paper. Pack dishes on their sides. Fridge drip trays should be drained before they are put on the truck and covered with furniture removals pads. Wrap sharp tools with care to maintain safety. Ensure adequate parking is available for the furniture removals truck. We recommend that clothing be packed in Port-a-robe, wardrobe boxes. Fill the bottom of the Port-a-robes with lightweight items.
