Removals to Melbourne from the UK — Our Process
Schepens has been performing removals for well over 100-years. Our vast experience has helped us develop very precise processes for international furniture removals. These processes help to ensure each removal is performed efficiently, securely, and safely.
Our processes are guided by the standards set out by the British Association of Removers (BAR). BAR has published an extensive standard that sets out how removals should be performed. It covers everything from packing materials through to contingency plans. All of our removers are familiar with these standards and ensure they are implemented. The fact that we adhere to BAR standards gives our clients piece of mind.
We take the security of our client’s cargo very seriously and use the latest security technology for all removals. This includes electronic/photographic inventories and GPS tracking. All removers are security-checked and trained on cargo security.
Our furniture removals to Melbourne are always fully insured. The vehicles and removers have comprehensive insurance. Clients have a variety of cargo insurance packages to choose from.
The Schepens quotation process
The first stage in the Schepens removals process is the quotation of the removal. One of our move coordinators will organise a meeting with you to learn more about the nature of your removal. For smaller removals, this meeting can be conducted over the phone or via email. For most business customers and owners of larger homes, this meeting will take place in person. This is because an in-person meeting gives the move coordinator the chance to examine your cargo and ask detailed questions.
One of the benefits of using Schepens for furniture removals to Australia from the UK is that you work with a dedicated move coordinator. By having a single point of contact, so the lines of communication are kept nice and clear!
Your move coordinator will constantly be available to answer any questions that you have and will provide useful advice on moving to Melbourne from the UK. They can help you with any paperwork that you have to complete when moving from the UK to Melbourne.
The move coordinator will ask you a number of questions during the meeting, including:
- Where is your cargo headed?
- Where is the pickup location for your cargo?
- Are there any access issues for either location?
- What are your preferred departure date and arrival window?
- How many pieces of furniture are going to be moved?
- Are any of the pieces very heavy, large, or fragile?
- Do you have any extremely valuable pieces that require additional security during the removal?
- Would you like to use a dedicated container or a shared container?
- Would you like to use our professional packing service?
- Would you like to store your cargo with Schepens?
Most consultations can be performed in 20 or 30 minutes. Only very large removals will take longer, because the move coordinator may need to inspect your cargo.
After the move coordinator has a strong understanding of your cargo, they will prepare a detailed quote. Our quotes clearly show what is being moved, the departure date, delivery window, cargo insurance plan, and total cost. We are transparent about our costs and the figure listed on the quote is all you will ever pay. All quotes are 100% free and completely obligation-free.
Using the Schepens professional packing service
Preparing cargo for an international removal can be quite time-consuming for our clients. It can also be difficult for a client to ensure their cargo is appropriately protected for the long journey. That is why many clients use our professional packing service.
The Schepens professional packing service involves our talented removers packing your cargo for you. Because they are experienced professionals, they can pack cargo extremely efficiently. They can also ensure each piece is adequately protected for the journey.
When you choose this service, Schepens provides all of the packing materials, including packing tape, cardboard boxes, and bubble wrap.
The furniture packing process for removals to Melbourne
The Schepens team uses tried-and-tested techniques for wrapping furniture for the removal. Each piece is carefully wrapped in packing paper or bubble wrap before being placed in a 200-grade packing box. When preparing furniture, the following steps are performed:
- Some pieces of furniture may be partially disassembled if it improves the safety of the removal
- Delicate objects like porcelain or glass handles may be removed if it improves the safety of the removal
- Glass table tops and mirrors are wrapped with layers of bubble wrap and plastic. Their edges are lined with cardboard to prevent chips.
- Furniture made from soft timbers may be covered with corrugated cardboard and plastic
- Upholstered items may be covered with plastic
The loading of the removals truck is then very closely monitored by the move coordinator.
“We wanted to say that it has been a pleasure dealing with Schepens from start to finish! Everyone has been so helpful, and certainly made the move less stressful, the men arrived on time, packed up with no problem, they were so quick, but careful and thoughtful too. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even though I must have seemed like a crazy lady at times!! Dan and Chris, our removal men of the day, you are stars in our eyes, you are absolutely brilliant.
