1 SHORT DISTANCE = BIG SAVING
Each trip from your house to the truck takes time. The closer we can park the truck to your house the more money you save. Make sure trees & gardens are trimmed ( Trucks need 3m wide & 4m high).
If you can bring your cartons & smaller items close to the truck this will make loading times quicker saving you time & money.3 CHILDREN AND PETS
Please ensure that small children and any pets are controlled at the time of uplift and or delivery.
At times these distractions can present a risk to all involved, and the last thing we would want to see is injury to your loved ones, your pets or our removalists.4 PACKING
Reduce the number of items to be moved. Sell or donate unwanted items. Bundle items such as mops and brooms and place all smaller items into cartons.
They not only travel better but also reduce the time required to complete the move.5 EMPTY DRAWERS
Chests of drawers need to have breakables, loose, and heavy items removed. The structural integrity will be compromised if moved with loose weight inside.
Light clothing may remain.6 DISMANTLING
Items such as beds, dressing table mirrors, trampolines, swing sets and furniture which were assembled after purchase should be disassembled.
We can do this on your behalf, however this will reflect in the cost of moving.7 USE ONLY PROPER REMOVAL BOXES
The use of good quality removal boxes will speed up the removal because of their strength and ease of stacking. This saves money in the long run.
Boxes are available from Wonthaggi Removals & Storage.8 ITEMS THAT ARE IMPORTANT
A good idea is to have a “Load last carton” or “Essential item carton”. This might contain things you need first at your destination.
Things like Tea, Coffee, Kettle, Nuts& bolts from dismantled furniture and remote controls.
