You’ve taken the first big step by hiring expert furniture removalists to help smooth the process on moving day. But in order to get the most bang for your buck, there are a few tips to help you save even more money during the move.
1. Moving boxes
Movers charge by the hour, so help them do the most efficient job possible by packing up your possessions ahead of time. Invest in identical heavy duty packing boxes sealed with packaging tape. These containers are especially essential for items like books and records which can easily split standard issue cartons. By buying crates which are all the same size, the removalists will be able to save space by stacking boxes upon one another. Quickly label the contents of each one with a permanent marker to help us place them in the right spot in your new home.
2. Pick up the keys
You might be surprised how often we arrive at the new house, only to find we can’t access it. Any dallying with picking up the keys will mean that you’re paying your removalists to hang around and twiddle their thumbs. Pick up the keys the day before at the latest, and keep them in a save spot to ensure your move flows smoothly.
3. Cull your belongings
Moving house is a great excuse to reconsider what you need. Because movers’ rates may vary according to the weight or volume of your items, consider culling some of those things that you don’t really need. A garage sale, a quick trip to the op shop, or just giving away pieces to friends can be effective ways to trim your load. Not only does it make the move go quicker, but you’ll also have less to unload on the other end, and your new place will be free from unnecessary clutter.
4. Prepare your furnitureIt’s easy to convince ourselves that we’ll give each item a thorough cleaning when it’s in the new place, but this rarely happens in reality. At the end of the move, we’re so tired that we are ready to just give up and fall asleep. Make the most of your pre-move energy and work on wiping down your dusty furniture. Hose down garden furniture, disassemble bulky items like clothes racks, and defrost the fridge several days in advance.

Why Should You Hire Professional Furniture Removals?
Professional and reliable furniture removals in Adelaide
Moving can be a costly process. In between taking time off work to pack up your belongings, laying down the deposit or bond for your new residence, and performing any pre-move in renovations, the fees can quickly add up. It’s no wonder that in this time of financial strain, some residents consider DIY moving to save on removalist fees. In our experience, tenants performing removals themselves more often than not end up paying more than the simple, all-inclusive cost of a removalist, not to mention being a whole lot more difficult. We’ve collated some of the top reasons to hire a professional furniture removalist .
Hiring out a trailer or truck will most often incur a day or half-day flat rate, rather than charging by the hour. If you’re moving the contents of a three bedroom home across town in a 3x3 trailer, you are looking at a full day and endless back and forth trips. Add the cost of a tank of petrol on top of your trailer hire, and that DIY choice is starting to look less and less appealing.
Most people don’t lift heavy furniture on a day to day basis. Spending eight hours or more disassembling, loading, securing, unpacking and reassembling furniture can leave you feeling completely drained, and ready to collapse after the move. Moving already involves so much work, from negotiating with landlords or agents to hooking up power and facilities. Trying to add moving to your own to-do list will leave you completely burnt out.
Our staff employ recommended safety procedures when approaching heavy lifts. Inexperienced or untrained movers will risk doing serious long term harm to themselves, as well as risking damage to precious or fragile furniture items. Dropping a bed frame on the new hardwood floors, or scratching up a fresh paint job is not the way to break in your new home.
It’s common for DIY removals to take 12 hours or more. By stark comparison, one of our trucks will most often complete the job in a single trip, because we are able to efficiently stack your items. Add to that the time saved by having experienced removalists do all the heavy lifting, as well as expert packing and padding, and you’ll find that your move could be completed in half a day. When you pay by the hour, you’re ensuring that you’re only paying for the hours that people were actively completing your work.
