Choosing the right removalist company can completely help or hinder your whole moving experience. It’s important that you find the right team to do the job, or else you could be faced with an already stressful situation becoming something full of regret.
Without the right team, an easy two-hour move could be stretched to six hours, your furniture could come off the truck damaged, and your removalists might not even show up. Ask any frequent mover, and they will have a horror story to share. By following these five tips of what to look for in a removalist company, you can bypass the drama and enjoy a seamless transition from your old place to your new home.
It might sound simple, but people are caught out regularly by assuming that the cheapest removalist will deliver the same job as a more expensive one. Rates between companies vary, and what might seem like a cheap hourly rate at one company could creep up high with added costs or even removalists that take their time.
Always ask for a free quote and be clear with your removalist about how much you will need to move. Whether it’s a commercial office or a simple home move, you need the right team equipped with the right truck and tools to provide you with the best possible service. Sometimes, it might mean paying a little extra for better service and peace of mind.
There’s no higher praise than word of mouth, so if your friends or family have a trusted company, chances are you can expect that same quality treatment. Do some research: most removalists will have social media pages of some kind where you should be able to get an idea of unfiltered feedback to help make an informed decision.
If a removalist company doesn’t have an insurance policy available, that’s one big red flag. Brisbane Furniture Relocation Specialists are members of the Australian Furniture Removers Association, the official body which helps regulate the removals industry, meaning you can be sure that your belongings are in safe hands with us and won’t be out of pocket if accidents do happen.
Sometimes there’s just not enough hours in the day. Many removalist companies offer additional services, like help with packing. We offer pre-packaging services at a competitive rate and can take care of your entire home.
Every household and office is different – from different furniture and belongings to different layouts to maneuver. If you have any concerns, have a chat with your potential removalist so they know what’s to come and how they can best support you through this period of transition.
