Once you know your move date, it’s time to start planning.
Organise all cartons and packing materials
Start packing. Red Truck can provide professional packers to do some or all of your packing should you require.
Label all cartons with the room they belong to and two key items enclosed (please write on the tape rather than the carton so that cartons can easily be recycled).
Clearly mark all items to be stored or disposed of.
When dismantling furniture, put all screws in a sealed bag. Attach it firmly to the item so you can find it later.
Trampolines need to be disassembled prior to relocation.
Defrost the fridge 24 hours before your move to allow the interior to dry. If your items are being stored, towel dry and wipe the fridge with vanilla essence, tape a couple of unused tea bags to the inside and place a toilet roll on the bottom shelf to absorb any condensation.
Use a portable hard drive to backup your computer.
Organise for a rubbish and recycling removal service, or let Red Truck take care of it.
Return any DVD’s, games or library books.
An important reminder: dangerous goods cannot be stored or transported. These include flammable items such as (but not limited to) fuels, oils, gas cylinders, aerosol cans, paints.
Let your current home and contents insurance provider know you are moving.
If you’re moving from or into a block of units, find out if there are any other moves scheduled that day, to ensure there’s room for the truck.
Where possible, secure parking adjacent to your property.
Arrange to have your telephone, internet, pay TV, gas and electricity disconnected.
Arrange with Australia Post to have your mail redirected.
Change your Electoral Roll.
Be prepared on the morning of move. Everything must be packed and ready to go.
Ensure all last minute items are packed and the floors are clear.
Make sure the path to the removal vehicle is clear.
Keep pets away from the activity, where possible.
Pack all items you will need on arrival into a priority box and place in your car.
Empty all garden machinery, bikes or other petrol powered items safely.
Keep cleaning equipment apart so you can clean when the removalists have gone.
Walk around the house with your crew leader and double check every room and cupboard before leaving the house for the last time.
MOST IMPORTANT TIP: Keep a kettle, tea bags, coffee, milk, sugar and mugs unpacked. Everything looks better after a nice cuppa.
We’re here to make sure your move goes smoothly, please let us know if you have any questions at all.
Please extend my thanks again to the gorgeous men Aaron and the team for the effort they took in our move. You know we have an awful time with a previous removalist so I was anxious from the get go.
They were meticulous and patient with all our things and were extremely organised. I was ignorant of the fact the time and effort taken by Aaron to plan the truck and all the equipment often asking him to ‘chuck that piece in there if he had room’. He always kindly obliged and was a gentlemen and extremely patient. I appreciate everything Red Truck has done, this is really a case of ‘getting what you pay for’ service was above and beyond expectations.
Hi Trish, I just wanted to say thank you to yourself and in particular Dave for looking after us with our move, we truly appreciate it! The boys who moved us were absolutely fantastic, they were very friendly, very professional and they worked so hard even in the incredibly hot weather. A huge thank you to everyone, we will highly recommend Red Truck to everyone we know.
I would like to thank everyone involved for making my move uncomplicated. The removalists worked so hard but were fabulous. They were considerate, polite and patient. Could you please pass on my thanks.
I will have no hesitation recommending your company anytime.
Hello Trish, Dave and team,
Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful service offered by Graham and Mick to do the packing and of course the four very fit and friendly young men you sent on Thursday to move us. They were fantastic, cheerful and professional and made everything run very smoothly.
I would happily recommend Red Truck to anyone.
We were so impressed with the Red Truck experience. The guys did a fantastic job; they were meticulous, communicative, polite, hard working, careful around the kids, and nothing was too much trouble. They were clearly proud to be part of Red Truck, and they made the experience much smoother for us. We will definitely use you guys again in our next move.
The guys (Justin and Lawrence) did a fantastic job. They arrived right on time, handled our stuff really carefully, moved everything really quickly and had a great attitude. Such a difference to the “cheap” providers we have used previously. Will be glad to recommend you to friends.
We wanted to formally express our appreciation for the removal of our goods from Epping to Jerrabomberra – this was a fantastic job from start to finish. David got us off to a good start and the moving team led by Manny were polite, friendly, helpful and very professional. Please convey our thanks also to Graham, Trent and Lee.
This was our first house move in 33 years so we didn’t know what to expect but we would now thoroughly recommend Red Truck for any removalist job. Great work and many thanks
Just had Jack, Justin & Brad here unloading the furniture. They were amazing! Polite, efficient & very careful with all the furniture. I won’t hesistate to book you again or recommend you. Thankyou for a great experience.
David and team,
From the moment Lawrence and Graham arrived to pack on Thursday to when Manni and Mick departed King Creek on the Saturday, this has been the best of our 9 moves in 36 years. To Lawrence, Graham, Glen, Ben, Justin, Mick and Manni and the depot staff well done. Only one broken item which was a fruit bowl I hated so thanks. And we even loved Glen’s true yarns and stories. Great bunch of guys who represented the values you espoused during your quote. Well done and a heartfelt thanks
A big thankyou to the guys who moved us from Sydney to Orange. A great job well done!! No breakages, no damage, and they were so pleasant and helpful.
We certainly made a good choice when we chose Red Truck Removals and Storage.
We just wanted to send an email to say how impressed we were with the team who moved us last Thursday. We knew we had a lot to get through, and the boys were friendly, organised and chatty the whole time. Jack was particularly helpful, quite a character! They worked consistently through the day which was a refreshing change to some of the previous experiences we’ve had. Please pass on our thanks to Nick, Jack and Trent.
On the recommendation of a friend, we recently used Red Truck Removals to move our apartment into storage. True to their experience, we found the entire Red Truck crew to be friendly, accommodating and highly professional throughout the process. The move was stress free and our furniture was cared for and moved expertly by the RT removalists. I highly recommend David Seehusen and the Red Truck team. They exceeded our expectations.
I would highly recommend this company for reliable, efficient and friendly service in moving your furniture. We had Matt, Ben, Jason and Mick as our team and found the four men very professional, very friendly and took really good care with our belongings. We are so impressed that when our house is built we would like to have the same team again move us. Thank you to Dave and his great team of movers.
I was extremely impressed, they were polite, professional at all times and always helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Worked well as a team with each man knowing what to do and doing it well. Excellent presentation of truck and uniformed crew showed a high level of professionalism. Excellent demeanour of phone call, which was confirmed by professional approach of surveyor.
The crew were very efficient, courteous and very competent. We were completely satisfied with every aspect of our move and congratulate you on the service provided. Competitive pricing and came recommended.
Very impressed with Red Truck Service, would definitely recommend them to family and friends. Professionally done. David’s professionalism on inspection & quote. Trish’s efficient service over the phone, obliging and flexible.
Found the service excellent and well above expectations. Couldn’t be better, have recommended the service to others. Personal approach by David.
The crew were very obliging and helpful, definitely a 10 out of 10. Deciding factor to use Red Truck Removals was how well you handled our friends move previously.
Recommendation from a friend, the whole process and move was just excellent. Will definitely use them for our next move.
We were really happy with everything. Just so professional & we would highly recommend Red Truck to anyone. Deciding factor to use Red Truck was purely recommendations from friends and confirmed with professional communication once we began the process.
Was very impressed on all fronts, would highly recommend, care was shown at every stage and staff were very friendly/ personable felt like all our things were in good hands. Professional yet friendly from first meeting, liked approach plus fact packed straight into container, was definitely edge on competitors.
We would just like to thank you so much for making our move very smooth and stress free. The boys who were led by Emanuel were very professional, organised and friendly. They truly made our day a lot easier. They were wonderful.
The team at Redtruck made themselves available to help me out with a big move with less than 24 hours notice. David, Trish and Rosie were more than helpful on the phone, and the removalists on the day were just the same. Honest, hardworking, accommodating and affordable. I would recommend this business to anyone wanting a genuinely smooth move. Thank you Redtruck!
Mick and Jack were fantastic. Arrived on time, worked extremely hard, careful with everything, even protected stair railings and put beds back together. Will recommend to everyone. Thanks again!
First impression when I met David was honest, professional and highly recommended.
Red Truck removals and storage took all the stress out of moving, from start to finish the job was handled with the utmost professionalism. I will highly recommend David and his team in the future..
David inspired confidence when Conducting the survey, very professional and final price was very reasonable. Excellent job, had a solution to all problem items, made the move look easy, thanks guys.
The move was phenomenal. Their attitude from the moment David came to quote, To meeting his staff was exceptional helpful & professional. They rated 10 our of 10 for attitude and professionalism. No heap sales tactics and talk. Just genuine and professional. P.S. In my work role I’m a trainer in customer service and sales. You could write a book on how to facilitate this process.. You were absolutely fantastic.. Nothing was too much of a problem.
Thank you guys for all your hard work, the boys were fantastic and really hard workers, they have done an exceptional job and even wiped off the top of the fridge and connected the washing machine for me… Unreal and unexpected.
Thank you Trish for being helpful and your “can do/no worries” attitude, it was a pleasure to deal with you.
They were great, professional and friendly, nothing but the highest of praise.
David who came to quote on the job understood what was required. Not just a salesman. Very impressed with the whole experience. Made a stressful day easy.
Excellent service and will highly recommend to friends and family.
