Here are some moving tips to help you before the movers get to your home. If you have arranged for our packers to assist with your pre-packing, then this usually takes place the day before your move, or, if you are having a partial or kitchen pack, then this can be done on the morning of your move. Our packers have extensive training in the potential logistical and emotional aspects of packing up a home. They can work closely with you during the packing process or you can simply leave it to them to perform their miraculous pack-in-a-day tasks. All your cartons are labelled with the room designation and contents for an easy unpack.
If you are doing your own pre-pack of small items into boxes, then make sure you begin well before your move day as this can be quite a time consuming process. We can advise as to what boxes and packing materials you may need and deliver at no charge directly to your home.
The big day is finally here and you are all ready to go. Here are some moving tips for the day of your move. On your move day, your removalists will have a designated team leader who will oversee the relocation logistics during the move. Your move coordinator will also be available to ensure you are satisfied with the quality of service.
Our blue and white, soft-glide suspension MetroMovers trucks are fully equipped with state-of-the-art moving equipment to ensure the safest, quickest move possible. This includes furniture pads and blankets, flat straps, furniture shrink wrap, mattress and couch bags, door frame and floor protector pads, upright and flat-bed trolleys, piano and pool table dolleys, dismantling and reassembly tools, portable wardrobes and plasma/LCD boxes.
All furniture items are wrapped snugly in blanket furniture pads and firmly secured in the truck with flat straps. Mattresses, couches and specific items can be plastic wrapped prior to lifting for added protection during the loading and unloading stages. Our removalist crews can attend to any basic dismantling and reassembling of furniture items such as bed headboards, bookshelves and trampolines. Flat screen televisions are packed in plasma crates for maximum protection. Complementary portable wardrobes are provided for your convenience on move day for the transport of your hanging garments. Protector pads are provided for areas of your home which need added protection such as door frames or wooden floorboards. At your new home, the MetroMovers team will place and arrange all your furniture until you are happy with where it is all situated and they can complete any necessary reassembling. Boxes can be set down in the appropriate rooms ready to unpack.
Most of our moves are booked on the hourly rate system which is always the cheapest way to move and gives you the flexibility to control the cost of your move. We can do as much or as little as you would like us to do on move day. Choose our complete moving service where we take care of everything while you relax or choose to control your costs by helping with the small things while we attend to the heavy items. The choice is yours. Either way, our removals teams and trucks are all fully trained, equipped and prepared for every moving eventuality that may be required on your move day.
The move went successfully and now it is time to unpack. Here are some moving tips once it’s all been completed. For the ultimate, stress-free move, have our unpackers add the final relaxation element to your move by transforming your box filled house into a home in one day. We offer a full or partial service where we unpack all boxed contents into shelves, drawers, cupboards and countertops. We can even add the final touch by making up your beds ready for you to enjoy your new home immediately! We can complete your unpacking the same day as your move or begin early the next day – the choice is yours.
If you are doing your own unpacking, let us know when you would like your used moving house boxes collected.
