Preparing Your Furniture Removal Inventory

How many boxes do I need for my removal?
Often described as one of the hardest parts in doing an online quote is working out how to calculate the number of boxes you may need. We have put together a quick guide that hopefully will help you work this out. It's often most straightforward to try and work it out on a room by room basis, but please read more details on working out how many boxes you will need for your move. What Boxes do I need and how do I pack them? Moving Again does not insist that we pack your boxes, though it is a service we can provide on-demand.
However, to ensure everything arrives safe and sound we do recommend the correct use of cartons and packing materials for more details instructions on how to pack moving boxes please read in more detail.
Do I need removalist insurance?
If you are moving a long distance, then you should consider removalist insurance. You would not drive your car without insurance; your house is covered by insurance, maybe even you have health insurance
When moving furniture interstate there are always inherent risks involved, so please do check all your options. If you’re putting items in storage - get insurance, to protect against loss or damage. You want to enjoy your new home. Not mourn the loss of expensive furniture or belongings. Moving insurance is your answer.
Relocating plants interstate
When dealing with long-distance moving, we would prefer not to transport pot plants but will if they are essential to customers.
Do you need to find self-storage when you move?

Dangerous Items not transported by removalists
Any removalist will not carry Fuels, fertilisers, acids, ammunition, paints, aerosol cans, corrosives and flammable liquids as it may invalidate their insurance.
It's probably a good idea to dispose of these items in an environmentally friendly way (i.e. give them away)
Under no circumstances should you dispose of these items in waterways and drainage systems.
Not only would you be polluting the environmental surroundings, but it is also against the law.
Lawnmowers, wiper snipers, etc. please empty of any fuels or gases well before transportation. Again dispose of these sensibly.
With gas bottles, we now suggest giving the Gas bottle away we can not transport them
All removalists will refuse the transportation of any and all items they feel fit into the “dangerous goods” category.
If you are unsure what is classed at any time Contact Us for more information.
