Making your move easy

Moving is stressful – there’s no doubt about it. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving down the road or across the nation, uprooting all your things and your life can be very unsettling.

The last thing you want to worry about is how to get your stuff from A to B safely and securely. Let’s face it, most people don’t own big trucks or packing devices!

Whether you want to move a single item to the largest of house lots, or a house full of furniture and other precious items, we can take the stress out of moving your things, so you can simply focus on the move itself.

Our removalists provide personalised and friendly service.

Moving home is already an expensive undertaking - that's why our services come at affordable prices.

Horsham removals

Horsham removals

Moving house can be painful and time consuming, but putting everything into boxes and hoping it all reaches your new home in the same condition doesn’t have to be difficult.   Lo Cost Horsham Removals offers you these simple tips to make packing easy!

  1. Get rid of those possessions that have been gathering dust and cluttering up the cupboards.  This will save you time and money as you will have fewer things to pack and you could even make some extra cash by having a garage sale or putting things onto sites such as Ebay. 
  2. Only use quality removal cartons and boxes.  Mismatched old boxes are difficult to stack, and are much less likely to adequately protect your belongings.  Lo-cost Removals can provide you with the necessary pre-packaging wrappings, cartons, and purpose designed packaging. 
  3. Now for the packing!
    1. Use packing tape to reinforce the boxes – this is particularly important for breakable or heavy items.
    2. Layer items according to weight and size – heavy items first followed by lighter items on top
    3. Try not to leave empty space in boxes – make sure items can’t move around in boxes with space fillers like towels, bubble wrap or newspaper.
    4. LABEL everything!  This helps with the unpacking process as your Horsham removalist knows precisely where the boxes need to be deposited.  Remember to add ‘fragile’ to those boxes with breakable items. 
    5. Map out where things need to go in your new home.  Beds, shelves and dressers, tables etc.  Create diagrams that you carry with you and give one to your Lo-Cost Horsham Removals supervisor. 
    6. Prepare well in advance and enjoy your move with Lo-Cost Horsham Removals!

Geelong to Melbourne Removalists

Removalists Melbourne to Geelong - Melbourne to Geelong

Moving from Geelong to Melbourne or Melbourne to Geelong may not seem like a big stress as it's just down an hour down the highway but it is still a major relocation. Hiring removalists can take a lot of the stress out of the day. Lo Cost Removals not only take large and cumbersome furniture, we can also fill our trucks with all of your boxes, clothes and appliances rather than you taking car loads back and forth. Once you've used the services of experienced removalists, you'll never again want to attempt it on your own. Our huge trucks, trolleys, ramps and specialist materials help to protect your valuable furniture or antiques mean light work for you and no damaged or crumpled goods when you arrive.

Tip of the Month for your Melbourne to Geelong Move

Begin to pack all of your belongings into clearly marked boxes (list of contents and room) in the weeks leading up to the day of your Geelong to Melbourne move so that when the removalists arrive they are doing all the heavy lifting and spending their time filling the truck rather than standing around. Give your removalists clear instructions at the start of the move so that you can maximise their time.
