The Smooth Mover is expanding! We are proud to offer both a Removal and Storage Options to our customers from the 1st August 2015. We will be moving to our new premises at 11 Tarndale Grove, Albany, taking over and maintaining the good work currently being done by Safe T Storage.
The warehouse contains purpose built storage units that come in 3 sizes.
25cbm 2.4 x 4.5m suitable for a 2brm home or flat
33cbm 2.4 x 6.0m suitable for a 2/3 brm home
42cbm 2.4 x 7.5m suitable for 3brm – moderate 4brm home.
The secure, clean, dry storage units are suitable for household effects, commercial stock holdings or document storage. All units are easily accessible and with our solitary structural design, it makes loading and unload a breeze on those wet miserable days.
This not only protects your personal effects from being rain damaged while loading into storage it also prevents mildew from developing on them during your stay.
Furniture blanks (the same as used in our removal trucks) are supplied in each unit to cover and protect your furniture while being stored, so international wrapping of your effects isn’t necessary. More floor area is available per cubic metre in our units and a low ceiling height of only 2.4 high, makes stacking easier (no steps required) and reduces the pressure placed on the items below.
24 hour monitored security alarm is installed and security patrols inspect the premises at night. A separate fire alarm system incorporating smoke and heat sensors are linked directly to the Fire Service.
So now The Smooth Mover can offer both removal and storage options for a complete package.
Stay tuned as our website gets an update with more storage information.
Thank you to all our clients, without your support we wouldn’t be heading in this great direction.
With such nice customers we seriously don’t mind being Millwaters choice for furniture removals. One of our wonderful clients in Millwater has forwarded us a screenshot of the Millwater Families groups’ page. Makes for interesting reading… seemingly we’re doing a good job!
We would like to thank everyone for their business to date, kind words and hope we can help you for any future removals.
For any new customers thinking of moving to Millwater or within Millwater please contact us on 0800 363610 or via our contact page or email. We look forward to hearing from you.
Our guide can save you hours in preparing for your home for your upcoming move. We will be adding to this list regularly so stay posted!
Packing home contents can be very time consuming (especially the kitchen ), so start early, packing as much as you can. Leave out only the minimum amount of crockery etc that you can get by with, and pack the rest.
If you have enough notice before moving it is great to get the job done in a stress free way by packing 2 or 3 boxes a day/night so there is not rushing and panicking the week before your move. The Smooth Mover will assist with small packs in conjunction with your furniture removal, so please ask when booking your move. Alternatively consider employing the help of professional packers such as The Finishing Touch for your full home pack.
Keep entrances clear of boxes. Try stacking into corners of each room, or have one bedroom reserved for all packed boxes, alternatively use your garage. This will ultimately save you money if all your boxes are located in one area.
Take pictures and mirrors down, wrap and put them all in one place.
Sell, give away, and dump anything that you no longer need or want. Moving is the ideal time to have a clearout! We may be able to sell furniture items on your behalf – either at reputable second hand furniture shops or via the Trade Me website. Storage is available for this service, if required.
Clean as you go, as rooms or cupboards are emptied.
As you pack, it’s great if you can create a pile in the garage or similar area on the ground floor. This keeps your house uncluttered while you pack, and saves time during your move!
Keep ‘last minute’ things and other essentials (kettle, tea, coffee, snacks, medication, cleaning supplies etc) out and pack them last. This box should also be loaded on the truck last or taken by car ready to come off first at your new property.
If disassembling furniture, tape screws, bolts, bed legs and other loose items to the underside of the furniture or place in the drawers of furniture items destined for the same room at your new property. Make sure you bag screws etc first.
Disconnect your TV, check with your provider (eg Sky) for reconnection.
Have a good idea of where you want your furniture placed in the new property. It can be handy to make a sketch of the floor plan of your new home to determine the placement of furnishings.
