Getting the Job Done: 6 Unique Challenges our Movers in Melbourne Overcome

By Nextl3v3l | 13/03/2023

At Next Level Removals, our state teams understand that every move comes with unique challenges, and this is no different for our team in Victoria. Here are some of the challenges our local and interstate movers in Melbourne face and how we overcome them to ensure a smooth moving process for our clients:

1.Traffic Congestion

Melbourne is known for its traffic congestion, which can significantly impact the moving process. It can be difficult to navigate through busy roads and narrow streets in large trucks, especially during peak hours. To overcome this challenge, we carefully plan the moving route and schedule the move during off-peak hours. This helps us avoid heavy traffic and ensures the move is completed on time.

2.Weather Conditions

Melbourne’s notoriously unpredictable weather can make moving trickier depending on the conditions. Rain, strong winds, and extreme heat can make the moving process more complicated. However, our experienced local movers are well-equipped to handle all the crazy weather Melbourne throws our way. We use protective gear to protect our client’s belongings from the rain and cover them with tarps to protect them from the scorching sun.

3.Limited Access

Some homes in Melbourne are located on narrow streets, and while this adds to the city’s unique character, it can make it difficult for our moving trucks to access them. Limited access can also be an issue for high-rise buildings, where moving large furniture can be challenging. We tackle this by using specialised equipment such as hoists to move furniture and other heavy items through narrow spaces.

4.Parking Restrictions

Parking restrictions in Melbourne can make it challenging to park our moving trucks near our clients’ homes, especially if they are located in the CBD. This can add extra time to the moving process and make it more complicated. To overcome this difficulty, we obtain permits from the local authorities where necessary to ensure we can park our trucks at a convenient distance. This ensures that we can move our clients’ belongings in and out of the truck with ease.

5.Fragile Items

Some items, such as antiques, artwork, and glassware, require extra care during the moving process. Our veteran removalists know how to handle such items with utmost care. We use specialised packing materials such as bubble wrap, blankets, and custom crates to ensure that these items are well-protected during transportation.

Learn about our packing services to keep your precious items safe and secure during transit.

6.Moving Interstate from Melbourne

Moving interstate from Melbourne to another city like Sydney or Perth presents a whole new set of challenges for our team. While some aspects are similar to those faced when moving within Melbourne, there are a few unique factors that can make an interstate move more complicated.
One of the biggest challenges when moving interstate is the distance involved. Australia is a large country, and moving from Melbourne to Sydney or Perth can mean driving for thousands of kilometres. This means that our movers need to be prepared for a long haul, with all the logistics that entails, including planning for overnight stops and ensuring that the moving truck is equipped for the journey.

Moving interstate from Melbourne can also involve different weather patterns and environmental factors. For example, moving to Perth from Melbourne means dealing with the hot and dry Western Australian climate, necessitating additional preparation and planning for our team.
Despite these challenges, our movers in Melbourne are well-equipped to handle all local and interstate moves. Learn more about our local Melbourne removals and interstate removals services.
