Melbourne is filled with colourful street art, interesting food fusions and endless alleyways filled with pokey coffee shops and high fashion.
Moving in Melbourne

WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A REMOVALIST?
You get what you pay for
Highlight any Fragile or Special Items

Packing and storage
The worst part about moving is packing right? It starts with great intentions but tends to go down the drain quite quickly when you realise just how much work is ahead of you. A quality removalist company will not only be able to supply packing materials and a checklist, they should also offer packing services to do the job for you.
Removalists should also have storage space for your items, should you be downsizing, still waiting for your new home to be finished or if you’re moving into temporary accommodation. If they’re not ready to care for your items over a longer period, you should consider looking elsewhere.
