Chris is one of our Sydney team of professional removalists at Hire A Mover. Read on to get to know a bit more about him, the time he moved a coffin for someone and his top tip for a smooth move…
My name is Chris, and I was born in the Philippines. My Mum’s Phillipino and my Dad’s from Tasmania, and we lived there for about eight years. I travelled around quite a bit when I was younger, so a lot of moving!
For five and a half years now.
We’ve been working in Pyrmont today, moving up to Mona Vale.
What’s the most unusual thing you’ve had to move for someone?
I had to move a coffin once…
No no one, but the same lady also had a big cross for us to move as well. That would be the most memorable one.
We’ve had a few longer trips up to Newcastle and other places, I turn my bluetooth on and play my own music and if I get tired of that, then I’ll turn on the radio.
I listen to anything really but I like a bit more rock ’n’ roll.
Something like this…?
When did you last move house yourself?
Nearly two years ago.
Lastly, what is your top tip for a smooth move?
Have everything ready to go, that’s the best tip I can give. Have everything ready for when we arrive; all the bed’s disassembled, boxes organised and no clutter. Having everything clear really helps!
