Moving a motorcycle interstate

One of our past customers has kindly provided the following tips on packing a motorcycle in a shipping container. Thanks to Phil who moved from Newcastle to Perth with us. Read what Phil had to say here.

Before the moving container arrives

Unless you are a frequent mover, you may have accumulated a pile of stuff that is used infrequently if ever. A major move is the perfect time to have that big clean out. Read our recent blog post about decluttering here. We recommend getting in a skip either before the container arrives or at the same time. The more you try to squeeze into a container, the longer it is going to take to pack and the more packaging materials you will need. As a leading container removals provider between Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Perth, we can offer a removalist experience second to none.

Packaging materials for moving interstate

Depending on where you are moving from and to, you may receive furniture blankets, boxes, ropes and a trolley. These are not everything you will need to pack your home into a container. To do the job properly, it is recommended that you have lots of corrugated cardboard, packing tape, tissue paper and newspaper, small and large boxes, heavy plastic wraps for mattresses.
