What to Tell Your Furniture Removalists Before Moving Day

When you book a furniture removalist for moving day, it's always best to do it well in advance. But before you finalize your booking, you need to ensure that both you and your removalist are fully prepared. To ensure that you don't miss anything important, something that could affect your move, tell your moving company everything you can about your home and your furniture.

If you aren't sure what you should tell your removalist at the time of booking, use the following points to help you.

List Your Very Large Furniture Items

If you own any very large items of furniture, then inform your removalists when you book with them. Especially large items of furniture can cause numerous issues. But if your mover knows in advance, they can prepare to dismantle your large items or have enough manpower and equipment ready to move them.

Your mover will likely send someone to your home to look at your furniture. This will help them give to prepare a fair quote and create a potential strategy to move the large item.

List Your Fragile Items 

A furniture removalist cannot move fragile items of furniture like pianos and large antique mirrors in the same way they would a general piece of furniture like a kitchen table. Greater care is necessary. Some furniture removalists already offer specialized services for fragile items of furniture. So, all you need do is inform them in advance, and they can then prepare accordingly.  

Describe Awkward Entry Points and Stairwells

Is your home a little bit on the small side? Or does your main stairwell make moving furniture more difficult than usual? Then this is something you should let your removalist know early on. They can then send a team out to measure your furniture and examine the path from your home to the truck. This will help them to eliminate any potential problems that might slow down your move.

Detail Any Vehicle Access Issues

Be aware too that your removalists will be arriving in a truck, not a car. This means that you need to make sure there is enough space for the truck to drive up to your home on moving day. If your movers show up on moving day and can't access your road, you could waste valuable time trying to come up with a backup plan.

To prevent problems on moving day, inform your furniture removalists of any issues or potential problems. A good removalist will have the experience and knowledge to deal with any potential problems well in advance of your move.

On the Move: Moving and Storage

Hello, my name is Dan and I live with my friend Barry in Syndey, Australia. When I first moved in with Barry, I realised that our new place didn't have enough storage space for all of my things. I wanted to make sure that all my stuff would be safe and kept in good condition so I booked a unit in the local self-storage place. The staff there were really nice and took the time to clearly explain the best way of transporting and storing my stuff. I decided it would be wise to start a blog to pass on some advice to others.
