Furniture Removals and Transport

Posted in Moving Tips

If you are planning a move, whether it be near or far, choosing a removal company with adequate manpower and appropriate transport will make the job a whole lot easier.

Are furniture removalists necessary?

A lot of time, organisation and labour goes into moving all your furniture and belongings to a new home. The initial excitement of packing boxes will soon wear off when you realise just how many boxes you require, including the added necessity of packing tape and cushioning for valuable items. Carrying heavy contents through doorways and up stairs is exhausting, especially if you need to make multiple trips using a small van.

There is also a tendency to underestimate the time involved, and a last minute rush will invariably lead to damaged possessions, which can be heartbreaking if you are moving fragile and expensive pieces. Choosing a removal company such as the moving company will ease your burden and enable you to concentrate on the enjoyable aspects of the move.


Can I get an accurate quote before the move?

A professional removal company will take everything into consideration, so you don’t pay any unexpected costs. Removal companies can send out a sales estimator to give you an accurate quote, or alternatively, a phone or email inquiry will suffice for most moves. Packing services are also available so you have confidence that your goods are well taken care of.


At what stage should I organise the move?

Give yourself time to find a company that will make the move easy. Removal companies are often booked well in advance, so it’s a good idea to schedule a time well ahead of the big day. You may be involving family or friends in the move, and making sure the time suits everyone is half the job done.


How can I help make the move easy?

If your present property or new address has difficult access you will need to inform the removal company so they can provide the right vehicle and enough manpower to get the job done with a minimum of fuss. You can also inform neighbours and give them the opportunity to move vehicles or other obstacles out of the way. Everything that makes the job easier and ultimately faster will save you money.


How safe will my goods be?

This will depend on the removalist you choose. Avoid cowboys that provide ludicrously low quotes and inappropriate vehicles. Everyone needs to make a dollar but it’s not worth risking your investment with inexperienced labour and unsafe vehicles. The professionals removalist will make sure your goods are secured properly for the journey, and have the experience to deal with any moving difficulty.
