Walk 50 meters in your removalists shoes.
After months of searching, you finally found the perfect family home on the perfect little tree lined street in Balwyn – Congratulations!
Now, as you book your removalist and prepare for the big move, it becomes clear that your perfect family home doesn’t necessarily include perfect truck access. But don’t panic. As usual, your removalists have a few recommendations! Removalists in Melbourne know that access in the suburbs with the biggest moves, like Balwyn, Hawthorn or Toorak, can often be the trickiest when it comes to parking massive trucks and unloading all their contents.
Basically, you want to figure out how to get the truck as close as possible to the entrance point of your home without damaging your property or the truck. The closer your removalists can get the truck to your house, the faster your move will go and the more money you’ll save.
The ideal situation would be a wide, unobstructed driveway that our trucks can easily fit in. The driveway can not have tree branches hanging down that could hit and scratch the trucks as they drive in. Generally, driveways end up close to a door, minimizing the distance the removalists have to carry all of your items.
However, as experienced Melbourne removalists, we know that yard size and layouts can differ significantly in these large eastern suburb properties. Most people don’t have driveways wide enough to park a 12 tonne truck, because really why would they?
If you’re driveway is too narrow, our other option is to park on the street. For this you will probably need to reserve a space in front of your house. Let your neighbors know when you’re moving and why you will be blocking off parking space on that day.
What you don’t want to do is wait until your removalists pull up to the house to figure it out. Be sure to discuss property access when you make your booking. Once the best access is determined, just leave the rest to your removalists Balwyn will be your new home in no time!
