Can I Move House In Alert Level 3?

The answer is yes.

We are still fully operational, as we were last time in Alert Level 3.
Our team will be conducting removals with face masks, and hand sanitizer will be kept in each truck for removals.

We please ask that you adhere to the social distancing guidelines. This is for the safety of not only our movers but you and your families also.

If you or someone in your household is unwell, please let us know and we can reschedule for you at no extra cost, we would rather do this than to have anyone in our team be infected, even if it is just a common cold etc, we can’t take that risk as our movers have young families/elders to go home to.

We want to take this time to say that we understand how stressful it is for everyone right now, and it is scary, not knowing what is going to happen, but we just have to be kind to one another and get through this. We’ve done it once, we can do it again. Hopefully, this is the last time we have to do it.

Once again, thank you to everyone for your understanding and ongoing support, we really appreciate it.

Top 5 Things To Consider Before Moving House

Hello everyone,

Hope you’re all staying warm during the colder weather we are enduring at the moment.

Just something to mention, even though it isn’t the best weather to be moving house, we still have you covered as we supply blankets for the furniture etc to ensure nothing gets wet during the move.

I just wanted to take the time to share some handy tips with you in hopes that your next move will be without any extra stress, as we all know how stressful moving can be.

Once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll start to know what steps you need to take in order to have everything ready by the time “Moving Day” comes along, but in case you haven’t had to organise moving before, here are a few helpful tips to get you through.

  • Check that the company you’re looking at choosing has good reviews. This is a good way to tell if they are essentially a service that you would recommend – Google Reviews can’t be deleted, therefore it is open for anyone to see. Most companies will have had a bad review or 2, but if there are several, it might pay to keep looking as it’s a good insight into that company.
  • Insurance – Unfortunately not many Furniture Movers in Auckland offer their services with Contents Insurance included. They may have Public Liability Insurance but this only covers eg. If the movers were involved in a traffic accident, then your contents would be covered. The best advice would be to check in with your House & Contents Insurance provider, firstly, to inform them that you will be moving properties but also to inquire as to whether your cover includes moving house. Otherwise, there are a few companies that specialise solely in house removal insurance. Generally, most people aren’t concerned about it as finding reliable furniture movers is a big part, but if you aren’t wanting to take that risk, ask your movers who they would recommend for Removals Insurance for that peace of mind.
  • Decluttering your home – This will be a money and space saver. We can also offer this service when you move with us. You could do this by giving some away to the Salvation Army, friends or family, or even posting on Trademe or other market pages so you could also be making some money back. It just means that when you move into your new house, if you have gotten rid of everything you don’t want to take with you, then you’ll have more space in the house, less unpacking to do, less to worry about.
  • Packing – If you don’t have a tight budget for your move, it might be worthwhile to get your movers to do it for you. They can provide packing materials including packing paper for all your fragile pieces. This way, you can focus on other aspects of your move. Some furniture movers will unpack for you as well, taking a lot of stress off your shoulders. If you decide you want to pack everything yourself, this will definitely save you money. The better you pack everything before the move, the easier it will be when unpacking and if you have as much of your items in boxes as possible, it will take less time for moving. We can offer you affordable packing material with our eco box rental or we have cardboard boxes for sale. If you are wanting to save money on packing materials, you could drop into your local supermarket to see if they have any available.
  • Make a checklist – List everything you need to complete before moving. This way you can work through it without procrastinating. This way you could also get friends or family to help if they know what you need to get done.

Just following these steps will be a total game-changer for when you move house.

Keep Moving

So, we are week 2 of Alert Level 3, in the midst of Covid-19.

First of all, I just want to mention how great it is to be back and also how thankful we are to have received such positive feedback from our customers who we have been able to move since the commencement of level 3. Your support has meant a lot to us through these hard times, as we know there have been many businesses that sadly, have had to close their doors. So we are very grateful that we have been able to stay afloat during the lock down and are now back in business.

We have been very fortunate to have such an awesome team of movers in auckland behind us who have worked tirelessly in the days before the Level 4 Lockdown and in the days since Level 3. We have had some new additions to our moving team as well as a new member of our admin staff to keep up with the influx of inquiries. We have been carrying out these jobs with the mindset of knowing that the numbers of new cases of Covid-19 are low, but we can’t be complacent.

We, as a team, are ensuring that while we are on the job, we are using hand sanitiser regularly, wearing gloves and face masks, as well as keeping our distance from our customers. Not only for the safety of our customers, but the safety of our team also, as they have families to go home to at the end of the day and we need to keep them safe.

Our storage units have been operational for a little while now and have been proving to be a great success as they can be moved around the warehouse ensuring an easier transition for moving in new items as we can place the unit right at the door for easy loading and unloading.

Moving forward, we just wanted to keep you all updated on how things are progressing. With our fantastic team, your support and by spreading the word about the “Auckland Movers that take the stress out of moving”, we can do anything. Our aim is to become Auckland’s Top Movers and with your continued support and our quality service, we know we can achieve this.
