To avoid disappointment on your moving day, it is important to know what items can and can’t be moved by the removalist. Some items that can be moved may have to be properly prepared prior to the move. And in some instances, you may have to have a qualified tradesman attend to your property.
Items Requiring Special Attention
Gas BBQ bottles
Lawnmowers or other gardening equipment containing flammable liquids
Prohibited dangerous goods
Plants (Certificates are required for moving plants to Tasmania and Western Australia)
Items in unclean condition.
Firearms - John Ryan Removals will move and store firearms for clients providing they hold current and appropriate licences, conditional such weapons have been rendered inoperable and unloaded. Ammunition and its components will not be moved or stored under any circumstances.
However, there are steps you can take to make it possible to have the removal company move them for you.
BBQ gas cylinders will not be carried by a removalist unless you can provide a certificate from a Gas Cylinder Test Station certified by Standards Australia, stating the cylinder has been purged. You should never burn off the gas nor simply release the gas into the atmosphere. Gas is heavy and will not dissipate making an explosion a distinct possibility.
Lawnmowers and other gardening equipment should have the petrol drained from the tanks. If you are sending these items interstate or into store, they will also need to be steam cleaned.
Contact the company who made your washing machine to find out what you need to do to ensure it is prepared for removal.
