When it comes to choosing a removalist, it can seem like a daunting task. There are so many to choose from so how do you pick and know you have made the right choice? By taking into account the following tips, you’re sure to find a removalist that will not only meet your needs but that you will feel comfortable handling your possessions.
If a mover is industry accredited, you can feel comfortable knowing that they are up to standard and will do an exceptional job. In Australia, the Australian Furniture Removers Association is the industry body for removalists. The Australian Furniture Removers Association sets professional standards and provides leadership in furniture removals.
Recommendations from family and friends are often the best way to hire a removalist. You can be sure that you get an honest review from people you know. Look up testimonials online and independent websites as well to help you compare moving companies so that you also get an impartial, third party opinion.
Your mover should offer you adequate insurance cover for your move. The insurance should cover any damage that is the fault of the mover. There are insurance brokers that specialise in moving insurance. Also make sure you read the policy carefully so you know exactly what you’re insured for and what your excess is should you need to use your insurance policy.
A reputable removalist will discuss with you any fragile or special items you may need to move. They will advise the best way to pack them and suggest if there is a particular way they should be moved or transported.
A good mover will discuss your needs in detail. They should determine if you are moving to and from a single or double storey home and approximately how much you have to move. This will allow them to provide a quote that factors in how much time will be required on the day. Make sure you receive a written quote so you can ensure you get exactly what you pay for. If you find there is a large difference between quotes, ask questions to determine why you are paying more or less for the service. You should know exactly what you’re getting for the price you’re paying.
By finding a removalist that fits these requirements you should hopefully find it easier to employ the services of a reputable moving company.
