Booking a removalist?
Accurate moving details
I cannot stress enough how important it is to provide your removalists with accurate moving details. Apart from cheap hourly rate companies that are just plain dangerous to book with this is the major headache most removalist companies complain about. Here is an interesting article called “Why you don’t hire the cheapest removal people is just plain crazy“.
In brief, the correct information allows us to ensure we have the appropriate truck and team for the move. It also allows us to provide a realistic time frame and costing estimate for your move and to provide yourself and other clients with accurate arrival timing.
Just recently we had a client provide a list of items and locations for their joint settlement move. Based on this we dispatched an appropriate truck and team for that move. After a perusal of the items being moved our team were in contact with the office. They advised there was nearly double the number of items to be moved. Therefore, all would not fit into the truck and certainly would not be completed prior to settlement. Luckily, we were able to send another truck and team to assist.
This could so easily have been avoided if the correct information was provided. A larger truck and team and earlier arrival time would have been assigned. This would have meant a cheaper move and less stress for all! In conclusion, appropriately sized trucks, teams and timing are all based on the information we are provided with.
Here are some tips
Make a list of items being moved. Do this room by room and then provide this when booking in your move? You may not know exactly how many boxes you will end up with, but we can certainly assist with this. If you require assistance with professional packing. Here is a very helpful LINK for more information on this.
Not disclosing that there is a Pool Table, Piano or similar will not make the move any cheaper. In fact, it will probably cost more. When we are unaware these items are being moved the appropriate truck, team and tools such as Piano Trolley, straps etc. may not be in the truck. Subsequently, it could mean we are unable to move the items or require additional assistance and therefore more cost and more stress for all.
Size really doesn’t matter
Our team will definitely book in and turn up to any sized move. If you only require assistance moving a couple of the heavier type items such as the fridge, washing machine and bed, or a small number of office items tell us when booking in. No Problem. We cater to all sizes and types of moves. House, unit, apartment, office and business moves. In short, our teams do them all.
Only last week we had a client book us to move all of their items from their rather large 25-person office. As a result, we dispatched a team with a large truck. Only to find they actually only wanted 6 desks, 6 chairs, fridge, 4 filing cabinets and a printer moved. Close by parking was a real issue for the large truck, meaning a long walk to and from the building. If accurate details were provided a smaller truck would have been dispatched meaning close-by parking and again less cost.
Then we have had the client advise the pool table was only very small thinking this would save them money. Here is an article we published on this. Click on the photo to read the article.
