Smart Move Tips

Moving with Difficult Access

Are you moving with difficult access and have oversize furniture?

Here at SmartMove we often come across properties with tight stairwells or obstructing walls that mean you can’t get your much loved furniture to the desired spot in your home or even worse not even in the front door.

SmartMove have solutions where as other companies might struggle.

Balcony Lifts

The solution to moving with difficult access might be a balcony lift, this involves protecting your furniture with removal blankets, shrink wrapping to ensure the maximum protection then some cleaver removal rope tying before man power come into play.

In order to conduct a balcony lift we often require images of the item, the view of the balcony from the ground and the view from the ground to the balcony to ensure its safe to carry out.


When an item is exceptionally heavy we have the resources to bring in a mobile crane to mechanically lift the item to an access point.

Using the crane does require a site visit prior to the move to ensure we meet all the OH&S requirements and the lift can take place without incident but can be the only answer to moving with difficult access for some customers.

No matter what lifting job you need to be done, SmartMove has the skills and knowledge you need!

With many unique landmarks such as Lavender Bay, Admiralty House and Luna Park North Shore is a popular travel location. Furthermore, the area offers a mixture of pretty cottages, contemporary and period apartments, fabulous waterfront homes and commercial developments.

Despite the exorbitant prices, it has not deterred the demand and people are often on wait lists for rental apartments in North Sydney. Furthermore, the heart of Neutral Bay is Neutral Bay Junction along Military Road. It features many boutiques, trendy cafes and restaurants and is a very fast-growing market including one of our favorites and the best chicken pad thai in Sydney (in our opinion) at Sam Thai!

On the bottom of McMahons Point, houses face one of many Sydney’s boatyards. This suburb offers a unique lifestyle, that of a city location but with a village feel. Additionally, tree-lined streets and parks make it an oasis within the busy North Sydney.
