Your furniture removalist company makes all the difference to the success of your moving day and an efficient, professional service can go a long way to reducing your stress levels. If you’ve been looking for cheap removalists Perth who also provide a quality service, there are a few questions you should ask ahead of time to make sure your moving day runs as smoothly as possible.
1. How much experience do you have?
Your removal company is transporting precious cargo on moving day so it’s fair enough that you’d want reassurance that they know what they’re doing. Don’t be shy about asking about the level of experience of the company and whether they’ve been in charge of many moves in the past so you can be confident that you’ll be receiving an efficient service.
2. What happens if it rains?
If you’re worried that your move is scheduled right in the middle of a rainy period, speak to your removalist about what would happen in case of bad weather. In most cases, a good removalist will be happy to proceed as scheduled and will simply wait for breaks in the weather to bring items in and out of the truck.
3. What will the cost be?
This might seem obvious but always take the time to get an accurate quote before moving day. If you want any additional services such as packing services or disassembling of furniture, mention this ahead of time so your removalist knows what you expect and can let you know of any added cost.
4. Are there any restrictions?
Some companies have restrictions on the items they can transport, so ask ahead of time to check if any of these apply to you. The last thing you want is to find out on moving day that some of your items can’t be transported. For example, most companies will ask that your fridge should be defrosted etc.
5. Are you insured?
It’s industry standard that a removalist company have insurance in place to cover your possessions for issues such fire and theft while in transit. A good removalist will have quality insurance cover in place and will happily show you proof of this on request. Although it’s unlikely that anything will happen to your possessions in transit, insurance cover gives added peace of mind.
6. Can you provide packing material?
There’s nothing worse than being right in the middle of packing only to realise that you don’t have enough packing material. To make life easier, ask if your removalist can provide packing material and boxes to help get your items ready for the big move. As experts in all things moving house, they should also be able to give you accurate advice on how many boxes you’ll need for the job.
