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.

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.

Is It Safer and More Cost Effective to Hire a Furniture Removalist in Brisbane than Going It Alone?

Sometimes when you are moving house, you think that it is best to forget hiring a furniture removalist in Brisbane and do it all yourself. Many single people and families do this, but is it really safer and more cost effective to do it yourself instead of hiring a furniture removalist in Brisbane?

Safety factors to consider: When you start moving furniture, glassware and other valuables around there is a real potential for breakages and injury as well. The last thing you want to do when you are already stressed out about the move is to damage or break your favourite glassware or drop the piano on your foot. Don’t forget that any damage caused during the move would normally be covered by the furniture removalist in Brisbane. However, when you move yourself these breakages might not be covered by your home and contents insurance (check on this to make sure), so as the old saying goes – if you break it, you pay for it.

Cost effective factors to consider: Who can put a price on your sanity? When you have to spend days and weeks packing all of your belongings and furniture, then loading it all onto the truck, to just turn around and do it all in reverse at the other end, how cost-effective is it really? Sometimes it is simply easier to pay a furniture removalist in Brisbane to do the work for you, particularly if they are highly experienced and have a reputation for doing a good job every time.

Another factor to consider is the stress of packing, unpacking, loading and unloading, and then driving the truck to your new destination. When you hire an experienced furniture removalist in Brisbane who can do all of this for you, you seriously reduce the amount of stress involved in your move.

Of course, you always have the option of moving yourself, but when you compare the safety and the cost aspects of DIY versus hiring a furniture removalist in Brisbane, the odds are stacked in favour of the experts.

If you are searching for a furniture removalist in Brisbane, call Packers & Movers Brisbane & Removals on 0411 182 208 for a free quote and a safe and very cost-effective moving experience.

Is It Really Worth Hiring Piano Movers in Brisbane?

No-one wants to spend more money than they have to, so is it really necessary to hire piano movers in Brisbane? Well, pianos come in many different shapes and sizes from heavy to absolutely huge, so moving one yourself wouldn’t be the best idea in the world.

Trying to move a piano yourself, instead of hiring piano movers in Brisbane, is a short cut to doing yourself an injury and damaging your prized possession, all at the same time. These are two of the best reasons for leaving piano moving to the experts, but as you will see below, these are not the only reasons that piano moving shouldn’t be part of your day.

Damage caused by transporting your piano
Professional piano movers in Brisbane know that any damage caused to your piano is most likely going to happen during the loading and unloading of your piano onto a truck. Pianos are very heavy and are difficult to handle, so that without the right equipment, you are left to manhandle the piano on and off the truck yourself, causing untold damage to your piano.

If you know anything about pianos, you will know that despite their weight and bulk, they are very delicate musical instruments and even following a move by professionals, they can still require retuning, before they can be played again.

If you don’t value your health and your piano, retuning it will be the least of your problems when you drop it from the back of the truck. Professional piano movers in Brisbane have been moving and transporting pianos for years and they have all of the right equipment to make the move safe for both your piano and everyone involved.

Piano movers in Brisbane are also covered by insurances, so if by any chance, your piano is damaged during loading, unloading or transportation, their insurance policies will cover the costs of repairs or replacement. You might find that your house contents insurance doesn’t cover the cost of replacing a piano that wasn’t tied down properly on the back of a Ute and fell off going round the roundabout.

When you need to move your piano, it pays to call in professional piano movers in Brisbane, so the move goes smoothly and your piano arrives safe at its destination.

Search online for specialists in pool table removals in Brisbane
If you haven’t already found a few good names for companies that move pool tables, then you can do an online search using those keywords. It is important to check out their websites to make sure that the company looks professional and that they do indeed have experience moving billiard tables or pool tables.

3 Reasons Why you Need to Hire Expert Piano Movers in Brisbane

Are you looking for piano movers in Brisbane? When you purchase a piano, you don’t often give any thought to what happens when you need to move it again. Once it has been delivered and is in place, you just carry on and enjoy your piano with your family. Then a day comes along when you want to move it to another room, maybe you are having the hardwood floors sanded or new carpets laid, or maybe you are moving house.

There are a multitude of reasons that might require you to move your piano, so for whatever reason, eventually you will need to source piano movers in Brisbane. Moving your own piano is not something that you should take on yourself for 3 really good reasons:

1.It is very heavy: Pianos are heavy and bulky and are not easy to move around. You might get away with pushing and shoving it a few feet if that is all you need, but when you have to move it between rooms or between residences, the best idea is to bring in the professional piano movers in Brisbane, who have all of the tools and the experience in moving heavy furniture safely.

2.It is very delicate: Pianos don’t do well when they are moved and if they are inexpertly moved between locations, they can quite often need to be tuned again. So you really need to be careful when you are moving a piano as you don’t want to damage it and have to pay for repairs. This is another reason why you need expert piano movers in Brisbane.

3.Are you insured? If you are trying to load your piano onto a truck or take it up a flight of stairs, what happens if you drop it? It is doubtful if your house contents insurance covers you dropping your piano from a great height, but if you call in the expert piano movers in Brisbane, they will be insured. Of course they don’t drop pianos, but it is always good to know that they are insured.

So if you need your piano moved and you are searching for specialised piano movers in Brisbane, call Packers & Movers Brisbane on 0411 182 208 for a free quote.

How Do You Find the Best Furniture Removals in Brisbane?

When you are ready to move all of your furniture and belongings to your next residence, one of your first priorities is to find a reliable company that specialises in furniture removals in Brisbane. Of course you can just hire a truck and do it all yourself, but this always takes longer and you have to lift and move all of your own furniture as well.

Other problems include having to pack and unpack all of your own belongings and furniture. So if you can find a company that also offers house packing in Brisbane, then you have everything covered.

How do you find a reliable company that specialises in both furniture removals and house packing in Brisbane?

Ask around your own network

One of the best ways to find any company with an honest and professional reputation is to ask around your network of friends, relatives and co-workers. Many of these people will have previously hired a company to organise their own furniture removals in Brisbane and a good reference from someone you trust will really help you to make a decision.

Do an online search for furniture removals in Brisbane

When you have a few names of furniture removalists to hand or even if your search around your network came up empty, the next step is to search online for a few websites. This is a great way to find out how professional the company appears to be, because their online presence tells you a lot about their work ethics.

So look for client testimonials on their website, as these will give you a fair idea of their reputation. Any company proud of their work will always display testimonials on their website, because these are well known to drum up more business. Also check that they are fully insured for losses or damages in transit and during loading and unloading.

Many furniture removals in Brisbane only have insurance for damages during transit, so when they load and unload your furniture and belonging, if they are damaged at this point – you are not covered. This is clearly an important point that you want to check before you make your decision.

If all of this sounds a long process to you, then call Packers & Movers Brisbane and Removals – who are experts in furniture removals and house packing in Brisbane.
