What are the benefits of using Fernandos Half Price Removals for your interstate move?

Cost Saving - The biggest cost for a traditional removalist is the cost of labour to load and unload. With our Melbourne to Adelaide Shipping Container Removals solution you save that cost by loading and unloading yourself. Depending on your location and the time of the year, you can save up to 50% on the price quoted by a traditional removalist firm. We are available by telephone 7 days a week for a quote and to explain how Shipping Container Removals works.

Less Pressure - You get up to three days to load and another three days to unload. That equals much less pressure for your Melbourne to Adelaide interstate move. You also have the opportunity to sort and cull as you load.

No Worries - We co-ordinate all transport with proven top quality road, rail and sea going contractors. We also supply structurally sound certified containers so as to ensure the safe and secure transport of your goods.

Security - Unlike removalists, no one else shares or has access to your container. You place your lock on it and you control who has access from the time it is delivered to your current home to the time it is delivered by us to your new home.

On Going Storage - You can leave your goods in the shipping container in storage on your site or ours for as long as you like while you search for a house, build, or simply clean(need a trusted and professional cleaning service? MCO Cleaning conduct Vacate cleaning services.) your new home. Additional charges apply so please discuss this option with us before you move.

Things to think about when organising your Shipping Container Removals from Melbourne to Adelaide:

Would you prefer to use our container(s) or would you prefer to buy and use your own?

What size container do you need? A 20 foot shipping container will generally hold the contents of an average 3 bedroom home or a small 4 bedroom home.

Do you have enough room to safely place the container at your house or business?

Which way would you like the container doors to be facing when it arrives?

Is up to three (3) days to load and the same to unload enough time for you? if not, talk to us.

Do not forget that you will need blankets to wrap your furniture, straps to tie your goods into the container and cartons to pack the smaller items. We can advise on all of this.

Do you want to hold on to the container for a longer period while you clean, paint or find a new home?

Shipping Container Packing Tips

There are some container removal considerations you’ll want to keep in mind when packing your storage container for the big move from Melbourne to Adelaide. Don’t leave small items loose – make sure everything is packed tightly in a box. Double box fragile goods if necessary. If possible, load the heaviest items in first, and make sure they are equally distributed around the container and tightly secured. Then fill in the spaces with boxes, heaviest boxes on the bottom, and lightest boxes on the top. Be sure to bubble wrap mirrors and paintings and other fragile items, and use removalist blankets to protect furniture and furnishings. The tighter you pack the boxes, the safer your goods will be. Strapping and tying items so they don’t move in transit is also a good idea.
