5 Tips Before You Contact The Melbourne Removalists
If you moving home it can either be a breeze or a storm depending on one big factor how organized you are before you execute your move. Our experience as removalists in Melbourne has taught us many lessons and so we put together a set of tips for you to follow that will ensure that you moving home is trouble free and leave a smile on your face.
Maintain a folder
From the time you begin to shortlist Melbourne removalists.
Be it making lists of the goods you are going to hand over to the removalists in Melbourne or getting quotes and estimates from the removalists file all of it in a movers folder. This way you will be able to refer to all your estimates, your receipts, and an inventory of goods you are handing over to the Melbourne removalists. It will come in handy especially when you are tallying the moved goods and making you payment at the end of the home move.
Our experience tells us that every once in a while we are at work in spite of all precautions we come across a piece of furniture that no matter what you try doesn’t fit through the door or gets stuck in a stairway.
The good practice we suggest to all clients is to measure up all the items you think may cause you trouble when you shift home. In fact, measure all the large items and then make a trip to your new home and measure all doorways lift doorways windows right up to where you want to place the bigger items in your new home. Inform the Melbourne removalists of these items and their shifting pattern. Let them double check as well when they go to the new home for a pre-visit, that way you will never go through the heartache and cost of bringing down a wall to fit a grand piano in.
One very important task that does not affect the Melbourne removalists job directly but gets forgotten very often is the task of informing all the authorities and your neighbors that you are shifting home.
A visit your local post office and filling out a change-of-address form, notify banks, insurance firms’ courier companies, the magazine and newspaper company, that you are moving well in advance. Also if the new owners are ok with it, put up a placard for a month informing everyone that you have moved along with your new address.
If you are going to entrust your refrigerator to the Melbourne removalists make sure that you finish all the stuff lying in your refrigerator and freezer well in advance, defrost at least 24 hours before moving day. This very important and an oft forgotten to do before you call in the Melbourne removalists.
Pack keys and emergency kit
Many a time we as removalists in Melbourne have removed and transported the client’s items to the new address, only to be told by the client that he has forgotten the keys to the new home in one of the items that are packed. This is a nightmare for the removalists. To avoid this, pack an emergency kit that is handled separately by the removalists. Put your keys, important documents, prescriptions etcetera and your emergency medicines. This will save both you and us the Melbourne removalists a lot of headaches when you move home.
