Moving checklist for removals to Australia
Although Simpsons will take care of all the details they can for you, this convenient checklist will make preparing for your move to Australia as simple and worry-free as possible.
Moving out: Before the removal men arrive, be clear about what they are contracted to do and what you are expected to do. If in doubt, ask the surveyor or a member of our staff. Ordinarily, both householder and the removal men have fairly defined responsibilities (though a measure of flexibility on both sides is of course desirable)
Children: Children, who are naturally curious and can easily get in the way, may potentially be injured. The younger ones are best left with a neighbour or friend until it is time to leave.
Swings/Climbing frames: Generally dismantling these is one job you will do yourself, but be careful not to lose the bolts. If you wish us to arrange to dismantle please discuss this with our surveyor
Garage/Shed: Tie together garden tools, and prepare items to be lifted straight onto the vehicle.
Self-assembly furniture: If you have any furniture of the home assembly type particularly if made of chipboard, please note that we recommend dismantling units before the move, as the joints are seldom strong enough to survive even careful handling if the furniture is moved whilst still assembled.
Washing machines: Secure your washing machine drum, and disconnect it from the water supply and electricity.
Books: Books are very heavy, use our book cartons as they are smaller and easier to manage.
China & glass: Wrap each item individually in packing paper or bubble wrap, packing the heavier items first with lighter pieces on top. Remember that plates and dishes are packed vertically and not laid flat.
Moving in: Make sure that you (or some other responsible person) is on hand to admit the removal men. If no-one is there and a reasonable waiting time expires, you could find yourself landed with storage and re-delivery charges. Enquire how long the vehicle will wait should you be inadvertently delayed on the way. It can also save time and confusion if you stand at the entrance and specify the location of each item as it is carried in.
Helping the move along: If you follow the guidelines suggested on this page you will find the removal men themselves responding to your good sense with extra efficiency and relaxed good humour. You can also help the move along by remembering to pack the kettle last. A cup of tea all round is a gesture always much appreciated.
Tipping: There is, of course, no obligation to tip the men, but, as with all personal services, people like to reward extra attention, willing good humour or a job well done. If you feel that a reward has been earned, the driver or packer in charge will distribute any gratuity given amongst the crew.
