Here at EasyMove, we get a lot of questions asked of us by our customers, so we’ve decided to compile a list of the most frequently asked questions about moving. Read the following moving FAQs to familiarize yourself with the moving process and find answers to your burning questions about moving house in Melbourne.
What Should Be Moved First When Moving?
This is a great question – the best way to pack up a moving truck is by shifting the largest, heaviest objects first. For example, a chest of drawers, dining room table, or bookshelves. Then other, smaller items can be placed around these to pack up the van as safely and efficiently as possible.
How Should I Communicate with the Movers?
The best way to get started with planning your move is to give the friendly team at EasyMove a call. That way, you can discuss your moving requirements in-depth and attain an accurate quote that matches your exact needs.
Then your movers will generally contact you on the morning of moving day to get the details of how to gain entry to your home and anything else that may need to be discussed. For example, you may have specific instructions for your heavier pieces of furniture or more breakable items.
Can I Move Safely During Covid?
Questions about Covid are probably the most important of moving FAQS. The answer to ‘can I move safely during Covid?’ is absolutely you can! Here at EasyMove, we have made it our mission to ensure that our clients feel as safe as possible moving during Covid. For this reason, we hire only vaccinated staff and follow all mandated guidelines.
Our workers wear masks and gloves at all times inside the homes of clients to minimize the risk of transmission. We also regularly disinfect our equipment and vehicles and ask our staff not to come to work when sick.
Additionally, we offer contactless moving solutions so that we do not have unnecessary in-person interactions. Leave some keys out for us to enter your home, let us know where they are, and we can complete the move without ever needing to meet in person. Then, we’ll call you when we’re all done so that you know it’s safe to return home!
How Much Does It Cost To Move?
This is one of the most common questions about moving that people ask us. However, it’s harder to answer than you might think. The cost is based on the difficulty of the move and how long it is going to take. This depends on factors such as how much stuff you own, how many bulky items need to be moved, and whether there are extra challenges, such as moving things upstairs.
To give you an idea of cost, our base hourly rate is $159 + a minimum of a $79 callout fee. You must book us for at least 2 hours. So the starting rate for extremely small moves starts from $397 and up.
You can add on extra services such as additional movers, a larger moving truck, moving on a public holiday, and more. Each of these incurs an additional fee.
What’s The Best Way To Make Relocation Easier?
This is another of our most common moving FAQs – and if you’re reading this article, you’re already in the right place because the number 1 way to make relocation easier is by hiring professional movers. Honestly, it can be overwhelming when you think about the stress and hassle of packing up, lifting, and shifting everything you own to your new home. If your priority is making moving easy on yourself and your family, hiring movers is well worth it.
How Much Notice Is Required?
The more notice you can give us before your move, the better. Dates do fill up quickly, so it’s best to book online as soon as you know when you’re planning on moving. However, if you are moving soon and haven’t organized movers yet, it’s worth giving us a call to find out if we’re free. You never know; we might be able to slot you in if we have a cancellation or some extra time available.
That’s all the questions about moving that we’ve been getting lately! If you have any more questions, you may find that we’ve already answered your question over on our moving tips section. Take a look at our previous blogs to see if we might have already covered what you need to know.
