The Top Five Things to Look for in a Removalist Company

Moving can be a stressful venture. From time management, sorting out packing priorities to finding the right “manpower”, moving can be one of those activities that can be an unpleasant experience for many.

To make the process as streamlined as possible, choosing the right removalist company is important.

Here are top 5 things to look for when choosing your removalist company.

Too cheap to be true

Cheap is not always best when it comes to furniture removal services. No matter if you are moving in Melbourne, Adelaide or Sydney, if interstate removal companies or state based services have a very low hourly rate, it should signal red flags.

Ensure your removalist tells you upfront about their fees, and includes items such as petrol, how many people will be on the job and GST.

Check up online

Interstate moves can be stressful and sometimes scary. To put your mind at ease, reading reviews online is a great way to see which of the interstate removal companies is right for you. Check out how many stars they got and if there were any negative comments, ensure they aren’t “deal breakers”, such as not even showing up for job.

Ask about truck size

You need to ensure the truck that you hire to move your belongings is big enough to fit not only regular size boxes, but also larger items such as furniture, desks and large appliances.

Rate their customer service

There many companies out there that can take care of your removalist job, however, a good way to separate the competition from the right people for the job is to judge their customer service from the outset. Were they friendly when taking your inquiry? Did they answer all your questions?

Do they have the correct insurance?

It’s important that you ask not onlyif the company has insurance, but also whether they have the right insurance. They need to be covered for not only accidents, but your items as well if they are in transit.
