The budget is usually the reason why people avoid hiring removalists in Brisbane, but unfortunately, going it alone can often be more trouble than it’s worth!
Here are 4 reasons why not hiring furniture removalists in Brisbane is a bad idea.
Why pack early? Families need their clothes, personal items, computers, furniture and kitchen appliances just to live and businesses need everything to simply keep operating. However, if you hire removalists in Brisbane who also specialise in packing and unpacking (we do!), you don’t have to worry about any of it, as they will do it all for you the day before the move.
When you avoid hiring furniture removalists in Brisbane, you will have to load and unload everything yourself. Not to mention that you need to pack everything correctly on the truck to ensure that things don’t move around and become damaged during transit. When you hire removalists in Brisbane however, you can leave everything in their capable hands.
When you hire furniture removalists in Brisbane it’s their job to move everything from your property to their truck and then from the truck into your new property. They are the people who will have to negotiate stairs, lifts and narrow entrances, not you! Moving yourself can be really hard work and at the end of the day, do you really want to lift the family sofa up a flight of stairs?
Will your policy cover any damage or loss to your belongings during the move? Professional removalists in Brisbane have insurance cover for loading and unloading, but they don’t always have cover for damage during transit. This is an additional cover that you need to ask about, before hiring your removalists (we have this additional insurance!).
In the end, the biggest tip we can give you is not to go it alone and not to hire a cheap removalist Brisbane, just to save money. Both of these options can cause you more angst and grief than you ever anticipated – always hire reputable removalists in Brisbane who can get the job done quickly, safely and on time.
Not every move goes to plan, even when you hire the best furniture removalists in Brisbane! For many of our clients, they find that their home has sold before they have found another property to purchase and they need to put all their furniture and belongings into storage.
Others find that their new rental property is rather small, so they decide to place some of their larger items in storage, until they can move to a bigger property. Timing isn’t always perfect, which is why these storage facilities can be a life saver for our clients, particularly if they move around a lot and regularly employ furniture movers in Brisbane.
Whether you require short or long term storage, it’s always best to hire a company that specialises in furniture removal to transport your belongings to the storage facility. This way, you know that they will arrive safely at their destination!
Here are five more tips to make sure that your belongings and furniture stay in good condition in storage.

Moving an entire office can be a huge undertaking and requires expert timing, which is why you need to select the best office removalists in Brisbane for your relocation. After all, every minute that you are not operating, is another dollar lost, and as we all know – time is money!
This means that you need to start preparing for the move well in advance, so that on the day, the move goes smoothly and quickly, and you can be open for business as fast as possible. To help you relocate to your new premises, here are our tips on getting the most out of your office movers in Brisbane.
This is the time when you should have already selected and booked your furniture movers in Brisbane, informed your landlord that you are moving and have all your employees onboard. If your lease includes specific renovations on termination, then this is also the time to have a builder organised to step in as soon as you have vacated the premises. Start an inventory of all your furniture, supplies and equipment, decide what you will take with you to your new location and what needs to be donated, sold or sent to the tip. Organise the removal of these unwanted items in the next few weeks.
Make sure that there is adequate parking facilities for your removalists in Brisbane, contacting the property manager or local council if necessary to make these arrangements. Inform your electricity, internet and phone providers of your moving date and new address, and arrange for everything to be turned on at your new location. Order new stationary supplies and business cards with your new contact details and backup all your important files to external drives or the cloud.
Contact all your clients and inform them of your new location, update your website and all of your social media platforms as well. Give any last minute instructions to your movers in Brisbane, then once you have checked that everything has been loaded, lock up the old office and follow your furniture movers to your new location!

At Packers & Movers Brisbane & Removals, we know how difficult it can be to relocate when you have a family and the children are at home. Whilst we all love our children, packing and moving when they are underfoot can add another layer of complexity to an already stressful situation.
This is why you need a plan of action that will make the day go smoothly and keep your children from being underfoot all day and possibly being injured. Brisbane removalists are professionals, but having young children racing around when they are lifting and carrying heavy loads can create an unsafe situation for everyone involved.
At the same time that you book the furniture movers in Brisbane, and if your children are old enough to understand that you are relocating, it helps to explain your reasons for the move and to familiarise them with their new home.
Packers & Movers Brisbane & Removals have been around for a long time and we have seen how many parents help their children to cope with moving to a new home. For example, we know that showing them your new home and visiting parks and playgrounds in the area, helps children to actually look forward to the move, rather than stressing out about leaving their friends.
With young children, it’s best to ask a friend or relative to give you a hand, either looking after your children while you supervise the move or taking them away for a few hours. This gives you an opportunity to focus on the move, ensuring that the Brisbane removalists have everything in hand, rather than spending your time worrying about the children.
If you don’t have anyone to help care for your children on moving day, then depending on their ages, you can give them a few jobs to do or occupy them with a few of their favourite toys. Furniture movers in Brisbane are well versed at moving families with children, so once everything is packed away in boxes, it won’t take long for your belongings to be loaded and you can be on your way!

Are you are moving in the near future? Then house packing is going to become one of your main priorities very soon! Most of us however, have collected so much ‘stuff’ that decluttering seems to go hand in hand with house packing.
If this situation seems familiar to you, then your best option is to call a specialist removals company that also offers house packing services in Brisbane, as they can help you to declutter before your move. On the other hand, if the very thought of throwing anything away fills you with an attack of the vapours – here are a few questions that might help get you started.
House packing can make you face a lot of emotions about your belongings, so you need to ask yourself why you have ferreted away all of these items. These could be your old childhood toys or your late parent’s belongings, or maybe you have a wardrobe filled with clothes that no longer fit you or a penchant for kitchen utensils.
One reason we hang onto these items is because we often have an emotional attachment to them or we keep them out of a sense of guilt or obligation. Once you recognise why you have saved these items, it can often be easier to let them go and declutter your home. Understanding that you need to declutter can also make the decision to hire a company that specialises in house packing services in Brisbane easier as well.
After all, many of these items actually clutter your life – just think of the time it takes to dust or maintain some of them, as well as all of the storage space that is needed. If you know that you won’t ever use these items or you haven’t used or worn them in the past 6 months, maybe it’s time to send them to a new home?
Decluttering and house packing in Brisbane doesn’t have to be stressful, all you need to do is start early and take it slow. Decide which items need to be placed in the trash, which can be recycled, given to charity or sold, and which you want to keep.

Summer is the busiest time of the year for both piano movers and for furniture removalists in Brisbane, because most homeowners decide to sell their home in spring, resulting in a move during the summer months. This is most probably a popular strategy because parents don’t need to worry about taking their kids to school for weeks on end and they don’t need to change schools during the semester, disrupting their studies.
The problem with moving in the summer is the heat, particularly in SEQ where we have high temperatures and high humidity for weeks on end. Nevertheless, since spring is the best time to sell your home, you usually find yourself battling the summer heat during your move. So, if you are looking at moving home this summer, here are our 3 best tips for a stress-free move.

As the leading furniture removalists in Brisbane, we love the autumn weather, because the heat of the hot Aussie summer is declining and the days are clear and crisp. Many homeowners decide to sell their homes in the spring, but this means that they will need to move in the heat of the summer. This can put a big strain on your family, as not everyone can cope with so much activity in the hot summer days that we experience in SEQ.
If you are considering moving from one residence to the other then it is always better to move during March, April or May because everyone benefits from the cooler temperatures. After all, it’s no fun working hard outside when the temperature is hot enough to fry an egg!
Even piano movers in Brisbane, look forward to the autumn, because as experts in lifting very heavy and cumbersome loads, they really feel the effects of the heat in summer. Of course, sometimes your moving dates are out of your control or you simply must have your piano moved by a specific date. If you have any choice in the matter however, always look to move in the autumn with winter and spring being good options as well.
Autumn however, is the perfect time to move because it’s one of the least popular times of the year to relocate. This means that furniture removalists in Brisbane won’t be overly busy, giving you more chance of locking in your dates and at short notice as well. Summer is a particularly difficult time to move, not only because of the heat, but also because it’s the most popular time and removalists and even piano movers in Brisbane are usually working flat out.
The reason that summer is usually so busy is because parents prefer to move when their children have finished school for the year and can start afresh in a new school at the beginning of the next school year. If this isn’t a problem for you, then moving during the off-season (autumn) gives furniture removalists in Brisbane much more flexibility and homeowners many more options for their move.

With most people buying and selling properties in late spring and summer, booking professional moving services in Brisbane during spring ensures that you have your dates locked in securely. There are many reasons for summer being the season for moving, but basically it’s because the kids are on holiday from school and parents can also take time away from work to handle all of the logistics.
Another great service you can consider booking at the same time is house packing, because in Brisbane, the hot summer months it make hard work packing in the heat. Not forgetting that if you have really heavy objects like pool tables or pianos that need to be moved, it’s best to book the piano movers in Brisbane as well.
With so many people wanting to move during the summer season, most moving services in Brisbane become booked out, so if you leave it too late, you might not be able to book your preferred dates. So it pays to get in early!
If you are moving home soon, here are a few tips to help you get a head start:
If you are moving in the next few months, be sure to book your moving services in Brisbane now and lock in your moving dates. Why not get a quote online with Packers & Movers Brisbane.

If you are ready to contact professional furniture movers in Brisbane, it’s best to ask whether they offer a pre-packing service. This is because professional packers know how to pack absolutely everything to prevent breakages during loading, unloading and transit.
Adding a pre-packing service onto the cost of your Brisbane removalists will no doubt increase your costs, but it saves you an enormous amount of time that you would otherwise spend packing before your move. After all, many homeowners spend months packing up all of their belongings with one mad rush at the end. Just imagine how good it would be not to bother packing at all!

As more and more home owners use our house packing services in Brisbane, we tend to hear of problems they have gone through when organising their move. One of the most common problems is moving with pets, particularly when you have children and pets!
For example, if you are renting and you have pets, it is important that you make sure that the landlord lets you have pets at your rental accommodation, particularly if you are moving to a unit or a gated community. As Brisbane Removalists, we come across many families who have to give up their pets because their new landlords won’t let them keep pets.
This is only one of the problems pet owners can face when they don’t think ahead. So if you are ready to book your packing services in Brisbane, here are 3 more tips to help you have a trouble free move with your pets.

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?
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?

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.

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.
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.
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?
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.

As professional furniture removalists in Brisbane, we know how to keep your furniture safe during your move, no matter how far away your destination.

The safety of your furniture is paramount to us and so we have a three step process that insures a successful move for everyone: packing, loading and unloading, and transportation.
Packing: The one way to ensure that your furniture and belongings will be safe during your move is to pack them correctly. We are the only furniture removalists in Brisbane to offer customers a packing and unpacking service, so you can be 100% sure that everything is packed safely.
Loading & unloading: This is when many accidents happen and items get damaged or broken, so our entire team is well trained in how to load and unload furniture and boxes safely. Everything is loaded onto the truck (and unloaded at your destination) using whatever equipment is necessary to get the job done right.
Transportation: Only professional furniture removalists understand how to load a truck correctly and how to tie everything down securely, so that it not only fits into the truck, but it won’t move during transit.
When you hire furniture removalists for your Brisbane move, you have an expectation that none of your furniture will be damaged. To make our customers feel absolutely safe with our company, we not only have the above 3 step process, but we also guarantee to repair or fix anything that might be inadvertently broken or damaged during your move.

At Packers & Movers Brisbane, we provide a professional and safe piano and pool table removals service for our customers in SE QLD. However, as with all types of removals, you can move your own pool table or piano, but if you drop one of these heavy items, you can not only do yourself an injury, but you can also cause a lot of damage to the items.
Pianos and pool tables are so large, heavy and cumbersome that it is not worth the pain, injury, stress and potential loss to DIY the move, particularly when the cost of pool table or piano movers in Brisbane isn’t expensive and won’t break the bank.
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.

As a customer, do you ever wonder how businesses come up with their pricing structure and why everything is so expensive nowadays? Well, as the leading removalists in Brisbane, our pricing structure is completely transplant and is very clearly outlined on our website for all of our customers.
We believe that our prices are very competitive, but as with everything, it always pays to be better informed. 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.
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. Don’t forget, that if you want to move on a public holiday, then we do charge an extra fee, simply because we need to pay our removalists a higher rate.
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. As the leading removalists in Brisbane, we know that the logistics of moving from one place to another can be complex, so if you have any special requests, you can call us on 0411 182 208 for a chat about your requirements or get a quote online.
