It is a big task to move home, and it takes a few individuals to make it happen. If you have found an agent, found a buyer, sold out and even picked up your new spot, you are doing great. Finding the best removal company is next on the list. Often, the best option depends more on the particular needs than merely using the first one that shows up on Google. Here are our top tips for helping you find the best removalists Sydney company for you.
Get Several Quotes
Make sure you receive multiple removalists’ quotes well in advance of any completion date suggested. Take into account the amount, the service you will get, and when the companies can carry out the change. Many larger removal companies will also offer a packing service for extra ease and convenience so that you can be confident that everything will be taken care of.
Many can send you an instant online indicative quote, but it is best to get a thorough evaluation from the removal company. Most removal businesses will send out a sales estimator to see what you have to move. This helps them price the quote more accurately and select the best removalists Sydney company more effectively.
Give Yourself Enough Time
The quote process can take a couple of weeks, and it may take another couple of weeks to find an available date, so give yourself enough time to select a removal company. Remember, several removal companies are booked up weeks in advance, so it helps start searching for a removal company long before your completion date is due.
If you can, include details of your new property’s access points and layout to your removal company, so they know what to expect when they get there. For starters, how many stairs are there, can furniture fit through the doors, are there alternate routes of access.
Make Sure You Are Insured
Many removalists firms will provide you with reliable moving protection against your property’s failure or breakages when it’s in transit. Before booking anybody, make sure this is the case. You can also contact your home contents insurer to find out whether your new policy will ensure your property when it is being moved, too.
Negotiate On Price
See if you can get some removal company discounts if you are comfortable negotiating the price. Be aware that moving house at peak times, such as Saturdays and during school holidays, would be more costly, as demand is typically very high at these times. If you can, try to plan to travel on a normal weekday when it may be cheaper, and there may be more space for a discount. Many removalists companies will provide you with a dedicated movement.
Get a Recommendation
A positive recommendation from a friend or family member provides the best way to choose the best removalists Sydney company. If you can be reasonably sure of their success with other clients, this takes away much of the confusion surrounding service standards.
Then trust your instincts and go with the company that has shown professionalism, helpfulness and friendliness in your contact with them if you cannot get a recommendation. Ask if they can negotiate a lower price for you if they are slightly more expensive. Above all, when you trust them with your worldly products, make sure you have a good relationship with your removal company, and a good relationship will make the transition as smooth and painless as possible.
