REMOVALIST  

Here are some tips to consider in choosing a removalist:   

Before you call the removalist and ask for quotes, take a look around and take note of how much stuff you are moving. Creating a list is a good start. Take note of major item inside your home first, such as a furniture, beds, tables, couches and also record their dimensions. But don’t forget outside items also, outdoor lounges, BBQs or even potted plants and all that needs to be moved. Check your garage; decide what you want to take with you. Lawnmowers, bicycles, and tools need to be accounted for. It will impact the cost as they require space to safely move them.    

When you’re done on your list, the next important thing to do is to request for removal quotes from different companies. It is a very important piece of information in planning to move that you need. There are factors that will affect on your quote, the distance of pick-up and drop-off points, how much you are moving and insurance will impact in your quote. A good removalist company can help you understand the different cost involved and will you manage or even reduce your cost. They might charge you hourly so you should be honest as possible when asked about how many items on your list to be moved. Some companies might send out someone to help guide you and to perform a survey. You can also ask about it if you are unsure.    

Given you have checked out some companies and starting to feel you have different options out there. The next thing to do is to check the list of accredited members on the AFRA website. AFRA is an official body of removal experts to help regulate the removal industry. Government departments consult the AFRA before making decisions about the industry. If the removal company is a member of AFRA, they are bound by a code of conduct and must meet their guidelines in order to become a member.  

Always keep in mind when you choose a removalist, don’t base on who’s the cheapest. Don’t risk your precious items to a company based only on the lower cost on quotes. Check the company first if they have premises, if they have back up trucks just in case your items are bigger than expected or when something wrong with the truck if they have replacement trucks. Ask questions, a good company will answer.
