Removalists Interstate and Local Moves
If you're moving home you need to get everything right and it's much easier to do this from the start so you aren't chasing your tail constantly.
To do this you need to choose a removalist who can get the job done in a quick and professional manner.
Shopping around for moving quotes
Check out customer reviews online and ask around to see if anyone you know can recommend someone (social media really increases your reach).
Removalist Comparison websites are a good place to start too.
Get the whole cost of the removal process
To get an accurate quote you need to find out how long the move will take, whether you are being charged a flat rate or by the hour and where the start and finish are (this might not be where you assume). Ask about extra charges and storage costs if required; get an itemised moving quote.
And get it in writing
Any reputable firm will provide you with a written, itemised quote. Use it to develop an inventory and tick everything off when your move is complete.
Removalists are professionally trained experts in transporting the contents of your home when you need to move interstate or locally.
An extremely arduous job and to do it well takes years of training and experience.
Removalist costs can vary quite a bit, often the size and distance of your move is the main contributor to the overall cost of the move.
However some removalists can be far more expensive than others.
It always pays to compare removalists services by sending them the same list of items to move, and then following up with similar questions, try not to ask one removalist one thing and then the next one different questions or a different list, be sure you compare removalists correctly
There are countless removalists online, the best way to ensure that you are booking your move in with a quality removalist is to look up their reviews, ask them questions and compare the answers each give against the others until you feel confident with your choice. We take a lot of the hard work away by only offering the service of verified quality providers.

We suggest that you have your move locked in a minimum of 2-3 weeks before your desired moving date.
The more notice you can give the better though.
There are many things to get organised when moving so in our opinion it's a good idea to lock in the mover early and then you can plan things around the moving dates.
The cost of having a removalist pack for you, commonly called a "pre-pack" typically comes down to how much packing is required.
The cost for this service is usually calculated at a per box rate.
However having them actually load your belongings into the truck is included in their quote. It is only packing the boxes for you that is extra.
Liability for damage often depends on how the damage occurs.
For example if you pack something into a box, and that box is loaded/unloaded properly, yet an item inside it is damaged, the removalists would not be liable for the damage.
If they drop your fridge off the side of the truck, then they would be liable. We suggest contact the removalist directly for more information about anything specific.
The best option is to always have your own moving insurance
Removalists are happy to provide a dismantling/assembly service on top of the moving service for you.
The cost for this service is quoted at an hourly rate and they will calculate how long it has taken to dismantle everything for you.
There is so much involved in getting ready for a move. We first suggest that you cull as much as you can, this will help bring the cost of your moving down. Then pack everything into boxes and if possible, load all non-essential items into your garage to allow the removalists easy access come loading day.
Most companies are happy to book in your move as far in advance as you want.
However we always suggest that you try to book in a minimum of 1-2 weeks in advance.
Think about the whole journey.
- Are their stairs that need to be climbed at your destination?
- Is there an elevator?
- Is there parking and easy access?
- Get all of the little things boxed off and think, think, think when it comes to the detail.
Make sure that you tell your removalist all of this so you don't get hit with any unexpected costs.
Check your removals company contract
Make sure that it contains the correct pick-up and delivery addresses, the right dates and times, an inventory and insurance details.
Read the fine print; in fact, read the terms and conditions in their entirety so you know what you are getting yourself into.
There is no such thing as a stupid question, apart from the one that you didn't ask!!
Insurance For Removalists
Any removalist worth their salt will recommend that you take out insurance for your move.
It's a good idea to ask your removalist who they recommend.
If you do this you may be able to get preferential rates from their recommendation, but additionally, this is an indicator of a reputable firm who takes the protection of their customers' belongings extremely seriously.
An alternative is to Google "moving insurance"
