Tips on finding the right place to live – from your Brisbane Removalists

As Brisbane Removalists, we have chatted to thousands of people who have moved house and in the process we have developed a keen insight into how people find the right home for their family.

So before you jump the gun and call your local moving services in Brisbane to ask them about their house packing services, make sure that you have ticked all the boxes outlined below. This way, you can be sure that you are making the best decision for your family.

  • Apply for a pre-approved loan: It is always less stressful looking for a new home and negotiating the price when you know how much you can borrow from your financial lender. As Brisbane Removalists we have heard many sad stories from home owners about houses that we lost due to not being able to borrow as much money as they first thought.
  • Check out the local transportation: Even if you own multiple vehicles, at some time or another you will likely need to use public transportation. So make sure that there is a regular bus service not too far away, as well as a train station if possible.
  • Explore the schools in the area: If you have children or are thinking or starting a family, the local schools may be a big priority for you. So always check not only their location, but also their reputation. For high schools, you can check their standing with a quick internet search and as Brisbane Removalists, we know that for many of our clients, the local schools are definitely part of their moving decision.
  • Find out the local facilities: Even though you usually drive to do your grocery shopping, it is always better if there is a large shopping mall close to your new home, as well as GPs, Dentists, Vets, restaurants and cafes.
  • Are there any recreation facilities nearby? Another consideration, before you call your local moving services in Brisbane, is to check out the local parks and see if they are well maintained and have facilities for your children or dogs. Also look for walking and hiking tracks, swimming pools, golf courses and any other sports centres that you are interested in with your family.

Decluttering? Lighten the load with specialist Brisbane Removalists

If your home has collected a lot of clutter over the years, the easiest option is to call in your local Brisbane Removalists to take it all away and leave you with a much more spacious and clutter free home.

Most of us have so many belongings that we don’t want to throw out, because we might use it again or wear it again, but which gather dust and take up space. From old furniture, broken tree decorations, camping gear, kid’s toys, and broken equipment and appliances, they all accumulate slowly over time, until all of a sudden we feel inundated with junk.

This usually happens when you are packing your house for a move and you realise that you have so much stuff! So this is the ideal time to organise a pre packing company in Brisbane to also pack up all of your clutter and transport it to the dump or to a storage unit.

House packing before your move is already a long winded and stressful time, so asking your Brisbane Removalists to help out with your de-cluttering session makes complete sense. But how do you start?

Start your house packing and decluttering in one room first

Packing for your move is best done room by room, because this lets you easily de-clutter at the same time. Everything you want to keep, you pack into your moving boxes, everything you want to go to charity can be packed separately and the rest can be put aside to go to the dump.

If you move through each room methodically like this, it won’t add too much time to your house packing time frame. Of course, the easiest option is to start well ahead of your moving date and de-clutter first. This way you can get all of the junk out of the way and then call in your specialist Brisbane pre packing service to pack everything else for your move, cutting down your packing and decluttering time dramatically.

So if your home is full of clutter and taking up too much of your valuable space or you are moving and realise that you seriously need to declutter before you move, why not call in your local Brisbane Removalists to fix the problem?

4 Items that need the expertise of Brisbane Removalists to move and pack

You can certainly pack and transport all of your belongings and furniture when you move yourself, rather than hiring the help of Brisbane Removalists. There are however, four items that are best left to the experts, because tackling them yourself will quite likely lead to injuries, as well as causing damage to these items.

The four items that are best left to the expert movers and packers in Brisbane are: pianos, fish tanks, artwork and large plants.

Pianos: No-one should really move and lift a piano themselves, even with help from friends. Moving these huge, heavy and bulky items through doorways, up and down stairs and onto a truck can not only cause serious injury to yourself and your mates, but can also damage your piano. Pianos are actually finely tuned instruments that don’t take well to being moved, often requiring to be re-tuned after a difficult move. It is always best to leave piano moving to your expert Brisbane Removalists.

Fish Tanks: Can you imagine the weight of a fully filled fish tank? This is why you always need to empty out most of the water before moving a fish tank, leaving enough water so that the bacteria can quickly repopulate when the fresh water is added. You also need to remove your fish and transport them separately, because they don’t do well when sloshed around repeatedly in a large fish tank. Once partly emptied however, you could move the fish tank yourself, but it is always easier to ask your local house packing and transport company in Brisbane to do the job for you.

Artwork: Avoiding damage to artwork is essential due to its monetary value, as well as its sentimental value. Artwork can come in all shapes and sizes, as well as being very bulky and heavy. Nothing is impossible to move and you can certainly pack and transport your own artwork, but to be on the safe side, it is always better to hire specialist Brisbane Removalists for the job.

Large Plants: Small plants are not a big deal and the best way to transport them is to transfer them from a ceramic or pottery container into a plastic pot for the move. This prevents the loss of your pots and helps to protect the plant’s roots from being damaged. Large plants however, are a different story, requiring specialist lifting equipment. This is why you need to call your local movers and packers in Brisbane for all large plant transportation.

What to expect when you pay for house packing in Brisbane

Not many people have heard about house packing in Brisbane, but it is one of the best solutions for reducing all of the stress and worry that comes with moving house. If you haven’t used a house packing service yet, here is an insider’s view on how to get the most out of this type of service.

What does a house packing service in Brisbane do?

Essentially, house packers will come in a few days before your actual moving date and pack up everything in sight! This means that you need to sort out what needs to be packed and what needs to be thrown out, recycled or given to charity.

A house packing service won’t sort through your belongings, they will simply pack up everything into boxes (including the rubbish!). So for example, you need to make sure that beds are stripped, and the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier are all empty, clean and dry, because they will all be packed away and won’t be inspected.

How long does the house packing take?

This depends on the size of your home and how much furniture and belongings you have to be packed. Generally however, a typical 3 or 4 bedroom home can take between 6 and 10 hours to pack, all things being equal. House packing services are really fast and they can pack up your home much quicker than you can yourself, because they do it every day and they are not wondering what to pack, throw out, send to charity etc.

This is the reason why everything must be ready for the house packers when they arrive at your home. They will simply start in one room and move through each room packing everything as they go, so if you haven’t sorted everything out beforehand, you will slow them up and you might even miss your moving slot.

All you need to do for a successful house packing experience in Brisbane is to be organised and ready for the packers to arrive. Why not get a quote online and enjoy the benefits of someone else packing up your home?

3 Cost saving tips for long distance moves using furniture movers in Brisbane

Long distance moves can be stressful and hard on your family, so if you live in Brisbane, the best solution is to hire your moving services early, giving you plenty of time to have everything organised before the big day.

Inevitably, if you are moving interstate, you will spend a sizable part of your budget on the furniture movers, however there are a few sensible tactics you can use to minimise these costs.

  1. Consider your moving date: Weekends, school holidays and public holidays are the most sought after dates for moving, so if you can select a day outside of these popular times, you can often save a few dollars. Summer is also another very busy time for moving services in Brisbane, meaning that if you can schedule your move at another time of the year (particularly winter) you can also shave a few more dollars off your costs.
  2. Do you need everything? The more belongings you need transported interstate, the greater the costs. So it pays to spend some serious time sorting through all of your furniture and belongings to decide if you really need to take it all with you to your new home. Maybe it is time to update your old fridge and you always wanted a new sofa and dining room setting, didn’t you? Don’t forget that a garage sale is also a great way to help pay for your moving costs!
  3. Think about food: If you are driving and following the moving services from Brisbane to your to new home, think about the length of the drive and how many stops you will need along the way. Even if you are heading off before the moving truck leaves your old home, you will still need a number of food stops along the way and with a family of four, this can add up to a lot of extra money. So pack an esky with cold drinks and sandwiches, and maybe a quiche, salad and sausage rolls for example – finger food that can be easily eaten on the go and won’t break the bank.

Are piano and pool table removals safe?

At Packers & Movers Brisbane, we provide a professional and safe piano and pool table removals service for our customers in SE QLD.

5 Steps for safe piano or pool table removals

As professional pool table and piano movers in Brisbane, we know what it takes to lift, secure and transport these heavy items. However, if you are considering doing it yourself, here are the steps involved.

  1. Manpower: You can’t move a piano or pool table on your own and depending on its size and weight, you will need lots of help to safely move them, particularly onto a truck.
  2. Dismantling: An upright piano can be moved as one piece, however a grand piano or a pool table needs to be dismantled before being transported. If you don’t know how to take apart and put these items back together again properly, then it is best to bite the bullet and invest in professional piano and pool table removals – call us at Packers & Movers Brisbane for a free quote.

  4. Tailgate loader: Unless you want to trust your piano or pool table to a fork lift and the back of a Ute, you will need a tailgate loader to safely load your piano or pool table onto the truck.
  5. Insurance: Occasionally, your home contents will cover piano or pool table removals, however this doesn’t always happen. At Packers & Movers Brisbane we are fully insured for any damage caused during loading and unloading, as well as during transport.

How do specialist Brisbane removalists price their moving services?

So in this vein, we thought it sensible to open up and let you know how we calculate our prices, so you can be fully confident that we really do offer the best value moving services in Brisbane.

What do we include in our prices?

Obviously, our prices reflect the costs and time involved in our moving and packing services in Brisbane. For example, the rising cost of fuel and the salary of our removalists. These costs are based on the time it takes on the road, transporting your furniture and belongings, and the length of time it takes to load everything and tie it all down safely on the truck.

We also need to include time for offloading, and if you want to use our packing services, then we need to account for this as well. Costs are also determined on the number of rooms, whether we have to go up and down stairs or elevators, and whether you have any large, heavy or cumbersome items that need to be relocated.

When people engage our moving services, some of them want part of their furniture and boxes to be left in storage for a while, so we need to factor in an additional trip in our prices, as well as unloading at the storage facility.

To be as competitive as possible, we charge by the hour, so you don’t end up paying a day rate, if your move only takes a few hours.

Tips for safe piano and pool table removals in Brisbane

As expert furniture movers in Brisbane, we regularly move heavy and cumbersome items for our clients, such as pianos and pool tables. These are the sort of items that should be left to specialist removers, because you can not only damage them, but you can also injure yourself if you don’t know how to move them safely.

So first of all, let’s take a look at how specialist piano movers can save you a lot of stress and worry by transporting your family heirloom safely to its new location. Then we can take a quick look at why you should also leave pool table removals to the experts as well.

Tips from piano movers in Brisbane

With large upright pianos weighing upwards of half a ton, to move one of these monsters you will need at least two, if not three or more people. Make sure that you secure the lid of an upright piano to prevent it from opening and wrap it in blankets to protect it from damage.

You will also need heavy duty lifting straps and a large furniture dolly that supports the weight of the piano. Remember that an upright piano has an off-kilter centre of balance, so it can easily tip over when you are moving it to the truck. This is why professional piano movers are so popular!

Tips for safe pool table removals in Brisbane

Whilst an upright piano can be moved whole, you can’t do the same for a pool table. These need to be dismantled before transportation, so you need to have an idea of how to take your table apart.

You will need the right tools, because you have to remove the legs, the six side pockets and rails, and the felt. Make sure that you keep all of the bolts and screws and label everything, so you know how to put it all back together.

As with moving a piano, you need to make sure that the dismantled table will fit through doorways and ensure that it is secured properly in the truck. Moving a piano or pool table up and down stairs and through tight doorways can be frustrating, which is why most people leave it to the experts.

Is it better to hire or buy moving boxes for house packing

As professional removalists in Brisbane, we have a large range of house packing boxes for hire and for sale, making it easy for you to protect and pack all of your belongings. We have boxes that are specifically designed for specific items, for example plasma LCD TVs, bicycles, wall pictures, lamp shades, books and wine. and even porta robe boxes that allow you to hang your clothes, rather than fold them.

We also supply all of the butcher paper, tissue paper and bubble wrap you will need, as well as protective mattress covers, dining chair and lounge covers, in fact everything you could possibly need for your move. It goes without saying that to move a household from one location to another, you will need a lot of boxes, but should you buy them or hire them?

The case for buying house packing boxes

The best reason to actually buy all of the house packing boxes you need for your move is because you want to use the boxes for storage. Many home owners don’t bother to unpack everything when they first move into their new home, particularly when they are renting.

Instead, they will store a lot of their belongings, either in the garage or in a storage unit. This means that they need good quality boxes, but they want to keep them long term. If you want to transport some of your boxes to a storage unit and others to your new home, just let us know and we are happy to oblige. Don’t forget that we also buy back unused house packing boxes as well.

The case for hiring house packing boxes

Hiring all of your boxes is a great idea when you don’t really want to keep anything in storage. You might take a few weeks to unpack everything, but once you are done, you are left with a mountain of boxes! As busy removalists in Brisbane, if your used boxes are in good condition, we can reuse them for our other customers, so if you call us to collect them within 2 months, we will give you a 50% refund on their original price. We also deliver and pick up these boxes free of charge in the Brisbane Metro area.

How long does it take to pack and unpack a typical house?

At Packers & Movers Brisbane & Removals, we offer house packing services to Brisbane home owners, making the weeks before your move wonderfully stress free. If you have ever packed up your household and moved to another location yourself, you will understand that the weeks prior to your move can be quite hectic.

As movers and packers in Brisbane, we can easily pack up a 4 bedroom home in less than a day, but that is when everyone is out of the house and we can pack everything in one hit! When we come in, we pack up all of your belongings and furniture room by room, not needing to worry about keeping items aside, because they might be needed before the move.

DIY packing vs professional packing services in Brisbane

That is the difference between you packing all of your belongings yourself, and professionals coming in and doing the house packing. In Brisbane, we generally start at one end of your home and keep on going until it is all packed. On the other hand, you will most probably start packing weeks ahead of your move, packing the items that you don’t think you will need before moving into your new home.

The problem is that when you are faced with an entire household to pack, it seems like a sensible idea to start packing weeks ahead, but as we all know, this can become extremely stressful. At some point you will be faced with looking for something that you are pretty sure you have already packed in one of the boxes, spending even more time rummaging around trying to locate the item.

Living amongst boxes for weeks on end isn’t conducive to a happy household, which is why our packing services in Brisbane have become so popular. When you don’t have to bother about packing everything yourself, you can simply live your normal life right up to a day or two before your move. This takes a huge amount of stress away from your family, letting you look forward to your move, rather than stressing all the time.

Very few removalists provide packing services in Brisbane, which means that you have to pack and unpack all of your belongings yourself. When you are moving house, you can spend weeks and weeks packing everything in boxes only to find that you have packed something you need!

Let’s look at some of the benefits of our house packing services, so you can appreciate why our customers are so happy.

Our house packing services give you a stress free move to your new home

When you are faced with packing up your entire household for the move to your new home, it can all look a bit daunting. Where do you start? What can you pack that you won’t need before you move?

We will come in and pack everything for you a few days before your move, giving you the freedom to keep living your normal life right up to your moving date.

10 Tips to save money on house packing in Brisbane

House packing in Brisbane has to be one of the most stressful things you can do when you move, so the solution is to hire professional removalists, who are also expert in house packing.

However, if you want to DIY your own house packing, here are 15 tips that will help you through the process.

  1. You need boxes: The best way to pack all of your belongings is with boxes, as they can be easily stacked in the removalist truck. You can purchase sturdy boxes from your removalists.
  2. Start early: Don’t leave all of your house packing in Brisbane until the last minute, because you will usually throw everything into boxes, rather than take your time to do it all properly.
  3. Identify rooms: Pack boxes by room, colour coding or clearly marking the room on each box. This helps the removalists to unload each box into the right room in your new home.
  4. Label: On each box make sure to write the contents, as this helps you to unpack and decide where everything is going to go.
  5. Number the boxes: House packing can be confusing, but if you number each box as it is filled, you will know how many you have in total and you won’t lose any boxes.
  6. Number the boxes by room: Numbering all the boxes for each room is also a great way to know that you have all of the right boxes in the right rooms and you aren’t missing any of them.
  7. Organise: When you start your house packing in Brisbane, begin by packing items and clothes that you won’t need before the move and leave other items until closer to the moving date.
  8. Weight: Don’t fill the boxes to the top, unless they are very lightweight items. If you fill a box with heavy items, such as books, you might not be able to lift the box.
  9. Packing: Put heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top, so that you don’t crush or break the light items.
  10. Bubble wrap: Breakable items, such as glass and crockery need to be wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them during the move.

How to plan ahead for safe pool table removals Brisbane

Pool table removals in Brisbane are not something that you should really try yourself, even though many people do attempt a DIY move. The obvious reason for calling in the professionals is because pool tables are so large, heavy and cumbersome, you can not only damage the table, but you can also seriously injure yourself.

Wrenching your back is an injury that can take years to heal and sometimes you are still left in pain, so calling in the experts for any pool table removals in Brisbane simply makes sense. One of the important points you need to understand is that a pool table cannot be moved whole, it needs to be dismantled and put back together again after the move.

Far too often, people who try to move their own pool tables don’t know how to dismantle and reassemble their table correctly, ending up frustrated when they need to call in someone to help. This is why the safest and surest way is to call in the professional for all your pool table removals in Brisbane.

There are things you can do however to hasten the process and prepare your pool table to be safely moved to its new location.

How to prepare for pool table removals in Brisbane

Obviously, you can leave all of these preparations to the pool table removers, but if you prefer, you can start by removing the six side pockets. To remove the pockets you will either have to loosen the screws on the underside of the table or if they have been stapled into place, you will need a staple remover.

The next step is to remove the side rails of the pool table and for this you need a socket wrench to remove the bolts. You then need to slide the side rails away from the table and store them safely out of the way. The third step is to remove the felt from the table, but this is one of the most complicated parts of pool table removals in Brisbane, so it is best to stop at this point and leave the rest for the professionals.

Who are the best piano movers in Brisbane?

Are you looking for specialized piano movers in Brisbane? Well Packers & Movers Brisbane are one of the best and most professional piano movers in the area and their prices are very affordable as well.

  1. You can injure yourself: If you don’t know how to lift heavy items correctly and you don’t have the right equipment, you can seriously injure yourself.

  2. You can break the piano: When you don’t know how to lift a piano correctly, you can drop it and cause undue damage to the piano and maybe even to the flooring. At the very least you will need to have your piano retuned and at the worst you can seriously damage it requiring extensive and expensive repairs. You might even crack the floor tiles, a repair job that is also expensive.
  3. Are you insured? If you injure yourself lifting a piano or if any of your friends injure themselves moving your piano on your property, you need to be insured. Anyone who comes onto your property and injures themselves can actually sue you for recompense, especially if you asked them to help you move a heavy piano. This is why professional piano movers in Brisbane always have their own insurances, covering them in case any injuries do happen on your property. It is important that you conform that the piano movers are insured and always ask to sight their insurance for your own peace of mind.

As you can see, trying to move a piano yourself is not the best idea, as you can injure yourself or your friends and you can also damage your piano and the flooring.

What’s the Benefit of Hiring Packers and Movers in Brisbane?

Professional packers and movers in Brisbane can make your life so much easier and less stressful when you are relocating. This is something that many people don’t appreciate, but quickly realise when they are stuck in the midst of a chaotic and stressful move.

Trying to pack up all of your belongings, load them onto a truck and then do it all again at the other end, is seriously hard work. So let’s take a look at why hiring an experienced team of packers and movers in Brisbane is something definitely worth considering for your next move.

Packing services: Lots of people start packing weeks before the move, because quite frankly, there is just so much to pack, that trying to leave it all until a few days before the move is not possible. The problem is that if you start too soon, you usually end up looking for something you have already packed, and honestly, trying to live amongst a house full of boxes isn’t pleasant. This is why hiring packers and movers in Brisbane is a great solution, because we will come in a day or so before your move and pack everything up for you, taking all the stress and worry from your move.

Moving services: When you add up the cost of hiring a truck yourself and the people to help you, even if they are your friends or relatives, it hardly seems worth the effort. Add to this the problem of carrying all your large appliances and furniture out to a truck and loading it all safely for the trip – then having to repeat the process at the other end. Professional packers and movers in Brisbane will take care of this for you, leaving you free to have a coffee and relax on moving day.

Insurances: Moving companies are insured for damages during transit, but not all of them have the extra insurance that covers loading and unloading. At Packers & Movers Brisbane we have this additional insurance, giving our customers complete confidence in our services.

What are the Benefits of Hiring Moving Services in Brisbane?

Not everyone sees the value in hiring moving services in Brisbane, but when you have a house full of furniture it can be daunting to tackle the move yourself. Let’s take a look at the 5 key benefits of hiring a removalist company for your next house move.

1. Save time: Professional moving services in Brisbane can come in and pack up all of your furniture and household belongings in a single day. If you do this yourself, it can take weeks or even months of packing before the moving day finally arrives and by then you will be well and truly over packing.
2. Save money: When you DIY your own packing you can spend a mountain of money on packing boxes, which can add up to a small fortune. Professional packers however, use the fewest number of boxes, because they know how to pack efficiently, saving you a substantial amount of money on packing boxes.
3. Instant insurances: All professional moving services in Brisbane should have insurances to cover damages to your belongings during transit. When you DIY your own move however, you will need to check with your insurance company to see if your belongings are covered during the move. Even better, since most of the damages occur during loading and unloading, a few removalist companies also include these extra insurances. This can save you a lot of heartache and added expense if damage occurs during the move.
4. No heavy lifting: Professional removalist companies know how to lift heavy items safely and will have the right equipment for the job. This saves you a lot of hard work lifting these items yourself and if you drop anything heavy on your foot, you will have more to worry about than replacing or repairing the dropped item.
5. Storage facilities: If you want to store any of your furniture or household belongings, then the moving services in Brisbane can also drop these off for you as well. You will have one quote for the job, even though there might be two different drop-off points.

3 Tips on Saving Money When Hiring Furniture Movers in Brisbane

Some people do their best to avoid hiring furniture movers in Brisbane, because they don’t want to spend the extra money when their budget is already tight. Moving can be expensive, but the benefits of having someone else move all of your furniture and belongings is monumental, compared to a DIY move.

If you are on the fence and are unsure whether you can afford to hire furniture movers in Brisbane for your next move, your first step is to calculate the costs of hiring a truck yourself, the cost of fuel and the number of trips you will need to do. Next, compare the costs in time and money with the cost of hiring furniture movers in Brisbane to do it all for you. Furniture removalists will cost you more money than a DIY move, but sometimes it is worth paying the extra money to give yourself and your family a stress free move.

If you still think that hiring removalists is too expensive, here are 3 ways you can save money when hiring furniture movers in Brisbane.
1. Hold a garage sale: The more of a load you need moved, the greater the cost. So get rid of everything you don’t need in your new life. If you are planning on buying a new sofa, bed, fridge or freezer for example, then get rid of them now and cut your removalist costs.
2. Book early: If you leave booking your removalists too close to your moving date, you might have to pay a premium, because they will have to try and slot you into their tight schedule. So make sure to book early and hopefully, you will be charged at a lower rate.
3. Be flexible: If you can fit in with the removalist’s tight schedule and be flexible with your dates, then there is no reason not to ask them for a discount. This is a win-win situation, because they earn more money and your moving costs are discounted.
