Frequently Asked Questions

Do WridgWays use accredited Melbourne removalists?

Yes. At WridgWays we only employ Melbourne removalists accredited by the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA). Not all moving services in Australia use AFRA accredited removalists.

Melbourne removalists accredited by AFRA have the necessary equipment, vehicles, premises, and staff training needed for local removals. All AFRA removalists understand the correct procedures involved with packing furniture and other household possessions for transport.

AFRA removalists are the most qualified people in Australia for handling local removals.

How are you going to protect my large belongings like furniture and mattresses during my move?

No matter how short the moving distance is for your local move, it’s always worth protecting your furniture. Our Melbourne removalists will ensure your household goods and furniture will be protected with specialised protective materials. Furniture pads, blankets, and specialised export wrapping are used to protect your belongings during handling and transportation.

VIP plastic covers can be used to protect your fabric furniture from getting soiled. Blankets made from a breathable fabric are used to prevent your leather furniture from sweating. For electronic equipment such as your television or speakers, our Melbourne removalists use specially-designed boxes for safe transport and storage.

If you are packing your own items, they may not be covered under your insurance policy during transport. Please refer to the exclusions and Limitations in the WridgWays Removal and Storage Insurance brochure for more information.

Upon arrival at your new home, your WridgWays Melbourne removalists will carefully unwrap and place your furniture and belongings where you request them to be placed.

Can I pack the boxes myself, and what are the implications of me doing this?

Yes. But there are certain precautions you need to take. Try to avoid packing with used boxes that previously contained food or plant items.

Our Melbourne removalists use and recommend boxes that are specifically designed for moving. Small book cartons are used to help protect books from damage such as folds and tears. Our Melbourne removalists can provide a diverse range of specialist packing boxes for all of your belongings.

Do I have to dismantle all of my furniture before moving?

Our Melbourne removalists are always equipped with a toolkit to dismantle large furniture items such as your bed. Our Melbourne removalists will request that items such as your swing sets, cubby houses, and built-in fixtures are dismantled before moving day.

If you require assistance with outdoor items and built-in fixtures, our Melbourne removalists can provide a disassembly service for you. Ask one of our WridgWays moving consultants for a quote on this additional service.

Can I leave the house while your removalists are busy packing or unpacking at my home?

On the day you move, our Melbourne removalists will need a representative to be present at all times.

We also require someone to direct the moving crew when it’s time to unpack. Only you know the perfect places to position furniture in your new home.

My new house isn't ready to move in yet, can you organise secure storage in the meantime?

Yes. Our Melbourne removalists can advise a secure storage option that best suits you.

Our state-of-the-art storage facilities are located in every state and utilise the latest innovations to ensure your belongings will be safe and secure. These facilities provide short and long-term storage options for local removals.
