Removalist Tools: How To Move With Style

As removalists of Geelong, one of the most common questions we get is “What is the secret for the quality of your service?”. The answer of course is experience, dedication and professionalism. But more often than not we find out that what they are asking what are the tools and practices that allows us to move things efficiently and while ensuring the integrity of both the packages and both the old and new places we are moving from and into. The first answer will always be care. Regardless of the task at hand we make sure to consider all the conditions and materials, to avoid any unwanted accident or damage. But our tools also help a lot, so let’s take a look at some of our favorite removalist tools so you too can know what helps us pack and move items for all of our clients in the Geelong area.

The importance of the basics can never be understated. When people ask about removalist tools they think of powered forklifts or the like, when we do we think of crates and wrapping. Whether it’s us or you packing a successful relocation starts with the proper packaging. Items are only as fragile or sturdy as the box you pack them in. There’s nothing as important for us removalists as a well packed crate. If a box is damaged or old it might open or spill while it’s being moved. If the items aren’t properly wrapped they might bump or even clash against each other. Boxes are always the first step of moving and you can never be too safe when packing.

When it comes to tools you might not have at hand efficiency still matters more than fanciness. Moving blankets are great to avoid scratches both on furniture and on walls. After all when moving we want to ensure both your packages and your new home are safe, so there’s never a thing as being too cautious. On a similar note furniture sliders are great to move your items to a precise location without worrying about scratching the floor. And of course, we can’t forget about the classic moving dolly. A dolly is pretty much part of the moving team, and the name too helps with the familiarity. A moving dolly simplifies carrying items, allowing us to work faster and safer. The wheels are also better for surfaces than dragging, meaning that a single dolly can help on pretty much every aspect of your moving. Dolly might not be the only one of our removalist tools, but it’s definitely one of the most reliable, and it allows us to provide you the best possible service.

If you need a removalist, get these guys. We have way too much stuff, but Tom and Cam smashed it out so quickly – and with a smile on their face the whole time. Great service, fair price, and no issues.
