Are you planning on moving any time soon? With careful planning and organisation, you can definitely save time & money when moving. Your stress levels will also be much lower.
The first thing you need to do is find the right removalists company. But finding a good moving company is not as simple as you may think. Of course, research is the key.
Company reviews are a great place to start, here is the link to Brisbane Removalists reviews that we are extremely proud of.

Moving in South East Queensland
If you are moving in South East Queensland, why not contact us here at Brisbane Removalists? Here is a link to all the areas we have assisted previous clients throughout SE Queensland. In case your suburb or postcode is not on the list, just give us a call & I am certain we can assist.
Here are 6 ways to make moving faster for your removalists. These will save you money.
1. Make your needs clear right from the start.
To get what you want from your removalists, you first have to know exactly what it is you want from the removalists company and what kind of move you need. For example, do you only want the removalists to move the heavier type items? Or do you need assistance with packing up all of your items into boxes?
Maybe you need help packing up the kitchen as part of the move or you have specific lift times that are only available. Or there is a piano or pool table to be moved.
Communication is certainly the key when booking in the removalists company. If for example there are access issues to your property additional movers may be required. A small truck may well assist to make moving quicker in areas of the CBD where parking a large truck is near on impossible.
Then again if you have a fully furnished large house a large truck & team would normally be assigned to help make moving faster. I can’t believe the number of times clients inform us they only have a relatively small number of items to move when booking in. Only to find on arrival they have considerably more, and 2 trips are required as a smaller truck was assigned to the move.
Providing clear and accurate details to the removalists company when booking in your upcoming move is just so important. Otherwise, the move may take longer than expected costing you extra money. For further information on The Things Removalists Need to Know When Booking in A Move
Here is what can happen if you don’t provide all of the information when you book
As an example, on a recent move, the client advised the piano was downstairs and it was being moved to the lower level of their new house. But, on arrival, the piano was actually on the 2nd floor with extremely narrow stairs. But as usual, our professional team were able to solve the problem helping our clients to save money when moving.
This meant an additional team of specialist piano movers and equipment had to be assigned. More cost for the client and more stress. Here is the published article on Google for more reading.
Another client forgot to mention that the property they were moving into was settling in the afternoon on the day of the move. If we knew about this when completing the booking for the move a later start time than 7 am in the morning would have been arranged.
It only took 3 hours for the movers to safely load all of the client’s possessions into the truck & then another 25 minutes to drive to the delivery address. As the property didn’t settle until 3 pm the client paid our team to sit around until they could commence unloading at 3.15 pm when the client arrived with the keys.
In other words, over4 hours of extra charges the client wouldn’t have had to pay for the correct information.
2. Do everything the Removalists advises you to do.
This will certainly assist in making moving faster and therefore save you money.
Your removalists, being the pros in this should provide you with some tips and hints to save you time, money and reduce stress with your move. That is of course if you have chosen the right company. These tips could include:
- Advise on the right packing materials and supplies to use. And of course, how to pack them should you choose to do your own packing.
- How to prepare and pack your pot plants.
- Booking lifts and loading docks if required if either location has these.
- Booking the correct size storage facility.
- Preparing your fridge and freezer for the move.
- Protecting your artwork.
Yes, I know this sounds like a no brainer make moving faster. But you would not believe the number of times our teams arrive on-site for a move and the client is not prepared or organised at all. Cupboards not packed up, loose items not in boxes. Books still on the shelves.
This adds additional time and cost to the client while our team packs everything up.
Here is a video from a recent move that explains this perfectly.
Our company’s objective is not only to save money for the client but also to make moving safely. I just can’t stress the high priority we place on safety.
As a matter of fact, it is our #1 priority. Here is an article we published on this for more reading.
3. Mind the kids and the pets.
Sounds crazy I know, but kids and pets running around the house while the removalists are working is a recipe for disaster. And yes, it happens regularly.
Depending on the age of the children, it may be a good idea to leave them with a family member or friend if they are not at school during the move. Any distractions may mean extra time taken on the move and therefore extra cost.
A recent article we published, the survival guide for parents moving with kids will provide a great read.
Frightened or aggressive pets that may suddenly dash out is certainly a recipe for an accident. Putting your possessions and the movers themselves at risk. Again, safety for all is the number 1 priority on any moving job.
If your pets are on-site during the move, please have them restricted to a room or part of the house for their and everyone’s safety.
4. Dismantle what you can
The majority of client moves require the bedding, tables etc. to be dismantled and reassembled as part of the move. If you can do this yourself it will certainly make the move faster and save you paying the removalists to do it for you.
Most furniture items these days are relatively simple to dismantle with basic tools such as a screwdriver and allan keys. Of course, our experienced team can certainly do this for you if required and the are no additional charges for this service. Just the time taken to perform.
5. Secure all doors and drawers.
Swinging doors can be extremely dangerous to the movers as they walk. The same with drawers if they slide in & out. Not to forget the damage they may cause if they slide into the wall while being moved. Simply empty out the drawers prior to moving and these can then be moved separately or simply tape up.
Decluttering doesn’t mean throw everything out, it simply means removing items you no longer want, use, or need. this too, to help to make moving faster.
More than likely you won’t need or want everything you currently have at your new address. And why pay to move items you don’t need or want. Doing this will certainly make moving faster, therefore saving you money.
Many furniture items along with clothing can be sold on Market Place or Gumtree. Or, simply have a garage sale and use the profits to help fund the move.
Now you know more about how to make your move faster & cheaper
Hopefully, this article will provide you with a better idea on how you can save time and money when moving along with lowering your stress levels as well.
As soon as you know you are going to move, start the planning process. I can’t stress enough how important that is. And booking in the removalists as early as possible is 1 of the 3 cardinal points for moving stress free.
In fact, on an almost daily basis, I have clients calling wanting to book in a move at short notice even though they have known about the move for weeks. Only to find the day and time they want to move is fully booked out.
