A poorly planned move results in increased moving costs. Your Local Movers can save your time, energy & money by following our proven Your Local Movers 5 phase plan to a stress free moving day.
A detailed consultation
First our expert will undertake a detailed fact finding audit. This allows the team to be prepared on the day and enables them to anticipate potential issues, plan parking and access, smoothing your moving process and saving you time and money.
Receive your planning pack
Print it out and use it to assist in planning for the pick up and delivery of your possessions. When you decide where you want things to go and the names for your new rooms you can label your boxes and/or your furniture items to match. This helps our planning, and helps you envisage your new home too.
This plan is just a guide. If you change your mind on the day, we can accommodate, don’t worry.
Moving a big family or an office?
If you have four or more bedrooms or an office with over 8 people we recommend visiting you for a FREE site inspection and a fixed price quote. Just ask your moving consultant.
Moving in or out of an apartment?
Save time and stress on the day by calling your body corporate and planning parking arrangements, find out about height restrictions and lift access. You will need to book in you lift, different buildings have very different rules so its always best to check. Or ask your consultant at Your Local Movers and they’ll do it for you.
Moving into storage?
We have secure on site storage that will always save you time and money. By storing with us you don’t pay any driving time to the delivery or pickup of your items. We also always have easy access to your items so no long walks at storage facilities and no slow lifts. Best of all you only pay for exactly the space you need and we can adjust your volume at any time. All of these factors lead to huge storage savings.
Your Move consultant will help you decide what packing materials you’ll need. We always suggest getting a little bit more than anticipated. If you don’t use all your boxes they’re simply taken off your final bill.
You’ll receive a copy of our moving guide to help you plan for the day
Our guide focuses on preparation, with plenty of handy tips like:
Good quality boxes make for a good quality moving experience.
Packing with boxes sourced from Your Local Movers makes a BIG difference on moving day. Our boxes are incredibly strong, custom made, unique to us and sourced from sustainable tree plantations. And you only pay for what you use, so order a few extra to be sure.
Time Poor? Try Our Packing Service.
Our packing service is perfect if you’re short of time, or find packing overwhelming. Arrange this for a day or two before the move, and let our experts take care of it.
We’ll give you a call a few days before your move to make sure you’re going well and to ask if we can help you in any way.
On Your Moving Day, We’re There For You. If You’re Not Satisfied, Then Neither Are We.
We’ll call 30 minutes before we arrive for any bookings made after 7am and give you a two hour arrival window so you’ll know when to be ready.
We’re in constant communication with you.
The first thing your team leader will do once he/she arrives is go through your moving plan with you and plan the fastest way to load your truck. If you have any questions or if something is concerning you, please ask your team leader.
Help with the little things.
We can take apart most things for you, including disassembley of beds or disconnecting the TV. We can even walk the dog and mow the lawn! Just let us know.
You can be as involved as you like.
If you want to help the team, please do, we just ask you not to get on our vehicle. No doubt you have many other tasks to be doing, once the original brief is complete, you can get on with them. And if you have to be elsewhere, we’ll keep in touch by phone.
If you’ve already pre-labeled your boxes and furniture with their new location in your new home or premises, it saves us time (and you money) because we don’t have to keep asking you where to put everything.
Pre-planning on arrival
Your team leader will require you for a quick audit and pre-plan before beginning to unpack the truck. This ensures the smooth unpacking and placement of all your possessions, saves time and avoid double handling.
Unpacking the truck
Because you will have worked with our team through the planning phases in steps 1, 2 and 3, the unpacking process should be easy. Especially if you’ve pre-labeled all your boxes and furniture. Our experts always pack the truck systematically, so unloading should be seamless and planned to suit the layout of the destination.
Help To Set Up
Our team members can also help by putting together beds and other pieces of furniture, moving furniture pieces within a room in order to achieve the best position, and they’re experts at getting items through tricky accesses.
It’s your home, so we want you to be happy with the location of each of your possessions before we leave. Our Movers are mindful of the importance of your moving day and will do everything they can to make sure you’re completely happy with your move and our service, if this means moving entire rooms around for the best effect, we’re happy to help.
Your Team Leader will cross check the placement and treatment of your possessions with you and confirm you are happy before we leave. You don’t want to be left with a cabinet on the wrong side of the room or beds still in pieces after a long day.
Your Team Leader will then ask for your signature to confirm your job is complete. Only when you are satisfied with the placement of your furniture and goods will you be invoiced for the day. We have eftpos machines on every vehicle to save you even more time.
If there’s anything you require after moving day, please contact us and we’ll come back and assist.
Moving house is rated as one of the most stressful events in a person’s life, ranking high along with divorce or bereavement. There are so many things that need to be done, and many of them need to be finalised in the last week before the move. For example, did you remember to notify the:
