Frequently Asked Questions
We do not mind this on local moves; however, there are a few things to consider. If the draws do not have a solid base, the weight in them can be detrimental to the draws during transit. Also consider the removalist who has to share carrying this item to the truck. Leaving stuff packed inside can increase the weight the removalist has to carry, Light weight stuff we do not mind, but generally, it will be best to have it completely emptied prior to removal.
On a local move, we don’t mind if some food is left in the freezer compartment. If your move is considerably longer in distance, its best to seek some eskies to pack your food. We do prefer the fridge to be completely empty as this will make it lighter for the removalist to manoeuvre and prevent any spills and or damages happening inside.
We simply ask that you remove the glass plate inside or carefully pack it inside the microwave. Failure to do so may cause the glass plate to break in transit. If unsure, please ask the removalist on the day and he will know what to do.
While we do prefer that tv’s including plasmas and LCD’s are packaged all is not to despair if it isn’t. We have moved many tv’s over the years, incident free. A manufacturer packages their tv’s so well that during shipping, there is no possibility of damages occurring. We can replicate this safely here at WASWFR by carefully wrapping the tv in furniture wraps and placing a foam protector matt against the wall and then securely roping it to the wall where it has no chance to move around.

Unfortunately, pot plants are not stackable and therefore take up a lot more room in the truck.
