TIPS FOR MOVING INTERSTATE

 

Once you have booked your move it’s time to start getting organized. Most people always underestimate the time it takes to get everything prepared before the truck arrives on the day. From getting rid of any unwanted furniture to connecting the power, gas, and phone to probably the biggest job of all – Packing the entire contents of your home!

BOXES & PACKAGING MATERIAL

  • Make sure you organize your packing materials well in advance: Don’t underestimate the time it takes to pack everything. Being totally prepared before your moving day will dramatically help the loading of the truck.
  • Make sure you only use professional moving boxes: Moving boxes are of the same size, which makes it easier for them to be put on trolleys and carried out. They also stack perfectly into the truck. Supermarket boxes are commonly known to topple over and squash easily, damaging your goods inside them!
  • Professional packing tape is a must: It stays on & won’t come off, making sure your contents stay safe. Cheap quality packing tape lacks in strength and often quite easily becomes unstuck. You may need to repack a number of boxes if you use cheap tape or even worse have your belongings fall out while they’re being moved!

You can get boxes from “Hire A Box”. They deliver to your home and can buy them back off you after you’ve moved, even if you’ve moved interstate. Click here and quote the code SEA100 to receive free packing tape and tape dispenser.

GET ORGANISED

  • You can move smaller furniture and non-essential items to the garage so it’s easier for the removalists to load up on the day, this can be done days before you move to save time.
  • You can put all packed boxes into the garage but try not to pack them too high, also try to stack like-sized boxes together.
  • Another good idea is to dismantle any non-essential furniture. If this is left for the removalists to do you will most likely be charged a fee for the time it takes.

GATES

Check that the truck will fit through the gateway: The majority of furniture trucks are about 2.5m wide. If you’re unsure about the width of your gate step it out or even grab a tape measure. Be sure to let the removalist know in advance if there is any chance of difficulty with access.

ACCESS BOTH PROPERTIES

  • Is the driveway clear? Clear any hazards: garden hoses, debris, etc. This will ensure the movers get a good head start on the day of your move.
  • Are neighbors cars out of the way? It’s always a good idea to let your neighbors know you moving the day before, this will help with minimizing the truck being moved in order for vehicles to get out.
  • Check stairways are unobstructed and safe: Stairs are part and parcel of the removal industry, all you need to do is make sure they are safe and clear of hazards, this will provide a safe working environment for the movers and will also help quicken the trips to and from the truck.
  • Ensure all doorways are accessible: Check any doorways that have trouble staying open, you might have double doors or a back door that may be best to get particular items out.
  • Do you have any large or awkward items? Remembering how a large or awkward item got into the residence can be a big help on the day, did it need to be dismantled, goes over a fence? Any recollections may help with the time taken to remove these items.

PREPACKING GUIDE

Being packed up properly is the biggest factor in avoiding unnecessary damage. And if you do it right it will make the unpacking a breeze rather than a headache.

The items that take the most amount of time organizing are small things like crockery, cutlery, books, clothes, etc. Pack these items into the right size boxes.

Most of the time a box is the best thing to use for packing items. The larger the box the more items you can fit in it, the more economical it is. However, if your box weighs too much because you filled it with books or cans of food it’s not only uneconomical but it’s unsafe. Choose your box wisely. For heavy items use a small box and for lighter items use a big box. Pack boxes with heavier items on the bottom and lighter items (towels, pillows, etc) at the top.

Do not be fooled into thinking that all boxes are created equally. Fruit boxes from your local supermarket are for storing fruit not for moving your valuable belongings. You should always use good quality boxes designed for moving house from a reliable provider. These boxes are designed for easy packing and easy stacking into the truck and for the maximum protection of your goods. They’re easier, safer, and quicker to load!

PACKING HINTS

REMOTE CONTROLS

Pack your remote controls in a place easy to remember. Usually in the drawer or the cupboard of the TV cabinet is a good spot.

BUTCHERS PAPER VS. NEWSPAPER

Compared to the loss of one of your favorite most expensive pieces of china, glass, or porcelain a roll of plain butcher paper is cheap! Make sure you use plenty of it to help protect your treasured possessions. Newspaper is fine for packing around items in the box to ensure a snug fit but be aware the newsprint will rub off on anything it touches so you need to use plain butcher paper to actually wrap your individual items.

OVERLOADING

Make sure you don’t overload your boxes. If your box is bulging or cannot be closed then you have packed far too much into your box. Overloaded boxes are less safe to carry, slow to move, and are more prone to damage the items inside them.

KITCHENWARE

The kitchen is one of the biggest jobs in the house to pack because of all the small items. Crockery needs to be wrapped up with plenty of butchers paper, this is one of the biggest jobs you’ll have so make sure you allow time. Plastic containers and silicone cookware can be packed into large boxes with little or no paper needed. For pots and pans, a large box is a good choice as they are not heavy. Be careful though when dealing with ceramic, stoneware, and cast iron as they are heavy and need protection. They need to either go in the bottom of the box or into a book/wine size carton. Also, make sure nonstick cookware is wrapped separately as they scratch easily.

BOOKS/DVD’S ETC

Books are very heavy when packed together so make sure you only use small boxes. DVDs, CD’s & videos are light individually but putting them all into a box makes the box extremely heavy. Only use small boxes.

WINE

Wine should always be packed into small boxes.

HOW TO PACK THE PERFECT BOX

When packing yourself understanding some of the basics the professionals use will help. Most professional pre-packers go-to packing school and they are taught to pack a box so that nothing is broken when the box is dropped from a height of 2.4 meters. Certainly, you don’t need to achieve this standard however, if you value your small ‘breakables’, you will want to pack properly.

  1. Use proper “moving” boxes. It will make your task easier and your items will be safer.
  2. “Cross” tape the bottom of the box with good quality tape.
  3. Plan what you are putting in each box. Keep breakables to the minimum number of boxes.
  4. Place a good layer of ‘screwed-up’ newspaper across the bottom of the box, and up the sides as high as the first row of items.
  5. Form a layer of the heaviest items, individually wrapped in PLAIN PAPER. Never let the newspaper touch your goods as the ink rubs off. Make sure they fit snugly together so there will be no movement.
  6. On top of this layer of wrapped items, place another layer of crushed newspaper, and again up the sides.
  7. Continue layering the items wrapped in the plain paper between layers of crushed newspaper, working up from the heavier items at the bottom to the lighter items on the top.
  8. Finish flush to the top of the box with a final layer of crushed newspaper. All items should fit tightly to ensure there is no movement.
  9. Close and tape the box, marking clearly its contents and the room it’s going to. Eg. Glassware & Dining Room.
  10. Don’t overload or overflow boxes. Don’t pack large boxes with books or heavy items.

GENERAL PREPARATION

CLOTHING

If your wardrobes are being moved make sure you empty them first. One option is to use Portarobes which are large boxes fitted with a metal crossbar for hanging clothes. If you are using Portarobes you can place shoes, belts, or handbags into the bottom of the box beneath the clothing. Portarobes are always carried upright so any items will be kept in place easily. If you are not using Portarobes then for protection from scratching, pack those items into a box. Portarobes are handy to keep for storage purposes!

CUPBOARDS

Furniture items with doors such as cupboards and standing wardrobes must be emptied of their contents, this is for two reasons:

  1. The items inside will get damaged simply from the motion of being moved: Without being packed into boxes even slightly tilting the furniture can cause considerable damage.
  2. The doors may fly open causing injury or damage: However, the movers can secure the doors using large elastic furniture bands.

FLAMMABLE ITEMS

Due to Health & Safety Regulations, we cannot carry any flammable or potentially flammable items in our trucks. These include gas bottles, lawnmowers, old-fashioned oil-filled sewing machines, jerry cans of mower fuel or petrol, or any other items containing either petrol or oil. We are of course more than happy to carry these items once you have emptied them.

DRESSING TABLES

Always remove small loose items from all of the draws, large lighter items should be fine. If possible remove the mirrors, they will be safer carried & transported separately. Any screws or clips should be placed into a snap-lock bag, mark the bag with which item they belong to, and place the bag in a sealable container.

BROOMS AND MOPS

The easiest way to ensure your brooms and mops are both kept together and moved quickly is to tie them together using tape.

WASHING MACHINES

For ease of reconnection remove your washing machine’s hoses and drain thoroughly then place them into the bowl of the washing machine so that you know where they are. Take care not to lose the rubber washers as sometimes they will stick to the taps. If you have a front loader make sure you have the transit bolts in place as most moving companies will not cover it if they are not in place. Be mindful as frontloading washing machines can be very heavy so you may need to ask the movers if they can secure the transit bolts on the day of the move. This service will not be included in backloading quotes, you will be charged separately.

ARTWORK AND WALL MIRRORS

Take large pictures and wall mirrors down and lean them against the wall, these items will typically be packed in felt blankets by the removalists. If you have something of considerable value make sure you inform your moving company. Small photos and framed items should be packed into boxes.

FRIDGE AND FREEZER

If your fridge/freezer is hooked up to plumbing, be sure to have it disconnected.

POT PLANTS

Water your potted plants a few days prior to the move to stop the chance of water leakage. In order to reduce the time your move takes, we recommend you move your small potted plants to the front of the house. Large, awkward & heavy pots are most easily moved by removalists using their trolleys. It is also important to note that in Qld, biosecurity regulations prohibit the transport of potted plants or other soil products outside of declared Fire Ant Zones without approval.

OUTDOOR FURNITURE

In most cases it is not necessary to dismantle your outdoor furniture but if large or fragile pieces of furniture can be disassembled for safety or ease of lifting.

BEDS

Dismantle your beds early on a moving day. If any bolts or screws are involved, put these into a small snap-lock plastic bag, mark the bag with which item they belong to, and place it into a sealable container with all other bits and pieces.

FLATPACK FURNITURE

Unfortunately, when you transport these items into the house they were flat packed and much smaller so it might be that the item won’t fit out the door now it’s assembled. Make a few measurements, if you’re unsure whether it will be able to be moved out, your time is best spent dissembling the item before the removalists get there. If you think the item will be able to be moved in one piece take the time to tighten all screws and locks as there is a high risk of damage when moving flat-pack items that are unstable.

As with all other screws and locks from disassembled items place them in a snap-lock bag, mark the bag, and place it in a sealable container.

LABELING

If you’re sending your belongings with a backloading service it’s a good idea to have everything labeled clearly. Even though the removalists will have their own way of separating each load, large bold labels, or a bright-colored tape or anything that easily distinguishes your items is helpful and will give you peace of mind.

WHEN THE REMOVALISTS ARRIVE

Show them EVERYTHING that you want them to move: Garden Sheds, Out Door Furniture any Storage Areas. This will ensure nothing is left behind and the movers know exactly what they are moving.

Show them the best access points: Outline any hazards or difficult items and the best access for these.

When you arrive at the drop off address.

  • Show the movers the best access points.
  • Show the movers what room is what.
  • Outline where the furniture is going to be placed.

HELPING THE MOVERS – WHAT NOT TO DO

Leave the large items such as fridges or wall units to the movers. Do not attempt to help them while they’re moving an item as this could result in damage or worse an injury. Professional movers have all the equipment and experience necessary to move these items quickly and safely.

INSURANCE

Although some removalist companies will include transit insurance in their quoted price as a service to their customers, is not the removalist’s responsibility to ensure each customer’s goods. If you choose a reputable removals company they will know how to wrap items and pack them into the truck to minimize damage and avoid breakage. If you’re still concerned you should look into taking out “All Risk Insurance” although sometimes the insurance cost and the access are more expensive than the items you’re protecting! Some household insurance policies will cover accidental breakages.

FOOD

Fresh food should never be packed into a box to avoid spoilage; either reduce your amount of food on hand in the weeks leading up to your move, or transport using coolers and ice packs. Canned food is extremely heavy, and should never be packed in a large box. Also, avoid packing dry goods with liquid to avoid a mess in case anything spills. Finally, always clearly mark any food-bearing boxes so your removalists know what they’re dealing with. These boxes should be the last into the truck so that they are first out.

BOOKS/DVD’S ETC

Books are very heavy when packed together so make sure you only use small boxes. DVDs, CD’s & videos are light individually but putting them all into a box makes the box extremely heavy. Only use small boxes.

If your wardrobes are being moved make sure you empty them first. One option is to use Portarobes which are large boxes fitted with a metal crossbar for hanging clothes. If you’re travelling locally why not save some money and simply lie the hanging clothes across the back seat of your car? Especially if you’re moving from a built-in wardrobe to a built-in wardrobe, this can be the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to move. If you are using Portarobes you can place shoes, belts, or handbags into the bottom of the box beneath the clothing. Portarobes are always carried upright so any items will be kept in place easily. If you are not using Portarobes then for protection from scratching pack those items into a box.

In most cases, it is not necessary to dismantle your outdoor furniture but if large or fragile pieces of furniture can be disassembled for safety or ease of lifting this can be a considerable time saver.

BEDS

Dismantle your beds early on a moving day. If any bolts or screws are involved, put these into a small snap-lock plastic bag, mark the bag with which item they belong to, and place it into a sealable container with all other bits and pieces.

FLATPACK FURNITURE

Unfortunately, when you transport these items into the house they were flat packed and much smaller so it might be that the item won’t fit out the door now it’s assembled. Make a few measurements, if you’re unsure whether it will be able to be moved out, your time is best spent dissembling the item before the removalists get there. If you think the item will be able to be moved in one piece take the time to tighten all screws and locks as there is a high risk of damage when moving flat-pack items that are unstable.

As with all other screws and locks from disassembled items place them in a snap-lock bag, mark the bag, and place it in a sealable container.

WHEN THE REMOVALISTS ARRIVE

  • Show them EVERYTHING that you want them to move: Garden Sheds, Out Door Furniture any Storage Areas. This will ensure nothing is left behind and the movers know exactly what they are moving.
  • Show them the best access points: Outline any hazards or difficult items and the best access for these.
  • Preparing to move the fridge
  • When time, place all the remaining items from the fridge into either an Esky or a small box with a plastic bag liner.
  • This will ensure no items defrost and spoil.
  • Esky’s or boxes containing food should be put on the truck last or even put in the car so they come out first at your new address.
  • When you arrive at the drop off address.
  • Show the movers the best access points.
  • Show the movers what room is what.
  • Outline where the furniture is going to be placed.

BEFORE THE MOVERS LEAVE THE DROP OFF ADDRESS

Ask them to do anything you know you won’t be able to manage when they leave like relocate furniture, reassemble furniture.

HELPING THE MOVERS – WHAT NOT TO DO

Leave the large items such as fridges or wall units to the movers. Do not attempt to help them while they’re moving an item as this could result in damage or worse an injury. Professional movers have all the equipment and experience necessary to move these items quickly and safely.

INSURANCE

Although some removalist companies will include transit insurance in their quoted price as a service to their customers, is not the removalist’s responsibility to ensure each customer’s goods. If you choose a reputable removals company they will know how to wrap items and pack them into the truck to minimize damage and avoid breakage. If you’re still concerned you should look into taking out “All Risk Insurance” although sometimes the insurance cost and the access are more expensive than the items you’re protecting! Some household insurance policies will cover accidental breakages.
