Tips to Ensure Easy Access For Your Perth Removalist on Moving Day
You will be surprised to find out how common the issue of easy access comes in when removalists arrive for a house removal. The cost for a house move in Perth today can range anywhere from $00 to $000’s of dollars and with the average mover on a strict budget, it is well worth the effort to be prepared. Furniture removalists such as Emmanuel Transport are experts in the field with many years of experience under their belt so before your house move, contact us for tips that can facilitate your move. Below are tips that you should consider before your Perth removalist arrives on your moving day.
1: Trees on Your Driveway
This is a problem that we come accross on a regular basis. Although driving a car might not cause a problem, trucks are much larger in size and also tall in hight. Having trees overhang the driveway might cause the removalists to park on the side of the road which might not be as close to your driveway. Not having that easy access might mean an extra few seconds to walk in and out of your property therefore meaning more time and a higher budget. Having this taken care of will save money on your moving budget. If you are not able to clear your driveway yourself, you could always get a touch with a professional which could help you with the task.
2: Long Driveways:
This one is pretty self explanatory. The longer the driveway the longer it will take to move your furniture from your house to the truck. Our team of experienced Perth removalists have all the tools to ensure that your furniture is safely moved from your house to the removal truck but we need to be realistic; the boys are still human (unlike some people might believe) and we cannot flick our finger and have everything in the truck. CBD apartment are a good example of this. It could take an average of 2-3 minutes to carry an item from your apartment to the truck compared to an average of a few seconds in a stand alone house. It is therefore important to consider whether your property has easy access and to inform your removalist when making your booking.
3:Ensure Good Access Inside Your House:
Everyone knows this one. Having your work area clear of obstructions is a must if you want to work efficiently and this is no different when your removalist are there to move your furniture. Imagine trying to move a bed out of your bedroom through the lounge and out the door but there are boxes, fans and suitcases in the way! All removalist will enter your home and view the furniture before starting. This is done for two reasons: a) To ensure they do not pick anything you want to leave behind and b) To see what furniture you want to move and figure out how to pack the truck. Ensuring that there is easy access to the truck would ensure a smooth load up.
4:Disassemble Beds and Other Bulky Furniture:
Most affordable perth removalist will arrive at your home without having seen it before. This is the reason why it is imperative to inform them at the time of booking if there are any beds and bulky furniture that will need to be disassembled on your moving day. Some removal companies will charge extra if this was not mentioned during the booking process and others might refuse to move the items at all. So if you have items out of the ordinary do not feel frightened to mention it. Better safe than sorry.
5:Seek Parking Permits If Moving from a CBD Location:
This one is perhaps one of the most important tips to be considered. Carefully consider your location in the cbd. Is there easy parking? Do you require a permit from the council? Getting this one wrong can increase your moving cost by a few hundred dollars and as you want to keep your cost down, its important to do your research and contact the relevant authorities if that permit is required.
