Keep your furniture clean

At Inner West Removals, our professional packers and movers always suggest furniture cleaning before you put those in the storage.

Never forget to instruct your packers and movers:

Before our expert removalists start packing your items to move those into storage, make sure to instruct and ask the following ones:

  • Be sure to mention your fragile item list if you have any! Our packers and movers will ensure then that your items stay well-protected and avoid knocking.

  • Ask our removalists to wrap up your items with more fabric covers than plastic ones to preserve those in perfect conditions.

Store perishable food items and risky goods
