Trampolines are Great Fun

Trampolines are Great Fun

Sure, trampolines are great fun for kids and adults alike. But they can be a real challenge on moving day!

The sheer size and shape of them often mean they will not fit in a furniture moving truck. And if they do, will often require a dedicated load between addresses (maybe with outdoor furniture and BBQ thrown in).

They will often therefore require full disassembly – especially if it’s important to fit everything in a single load – as is usually the case in moves involving settlement and specific timings around getting keys and access.

It can be a time consuming process to pull apart and then reassemble at the new property. To ensure a speedy and efficient move, we would highly recommend (where possible) that trampolines are disassembled prior to the movers’ arrival. If not, we need to know about them in advance – so we can schedule time and truck size accordingly.

Springfree Trampolines do offer a service of disassembling, moving and reassembling their tramps. Please see www.springfreetrampoline.co.nz/relocation-services

We would also recommend you think about the need to take your trampoline with you. Will you have sufficient space at your new property? Do your kids still use it? If not, it may be sensible to list it on Trade Me (with the buyer responsible for removing it ahead of your move date). Or see if the new people moving in might want it?

Occasionally our clients move very close by – so we can take the tramp for a little walk. But only if it’s safe with regards to traffic, overhead obstructions, etc. And only if it can safely be gotten out from your current property and back into your new property in one piece!

The Third Man – Furniture Removals

Are you trying to decide how many men you require for your move? while still keeping to your budget?  Our advice is don’t forget about The Third Man, sometimes he can get quite lonely.

Yes, we can all agree that our two man rate is lower than our three man rate, but is two always better than three when you are trying to save some $$?

The truth is that three men working on your household or office removal can get your move completed 50% faster than with two men (or put another way you will have less overall hours than you would with two men).

It’s all in the co-ordination of the loading and unloading, fitting the furniture in like a giant jenga puzzle so that nothing moves or gets damaged during a trip and the basic truth is that three men can get this task done more efficiently than two.  The extra man power is also great for those difficult or heavy items so they can manage more safely and efficiently.

The Smooth Mover are able to provide you with a recommendation of how many men you may require and allocate these men to your move based on the information that you provide to us.  So please don’t under report how big your move really is, think about the third man, he is always there ready to help and in the end will reduce the overall cost of your move!.
