What you need to know when picking a moving company for interstate removals
Interstate moving is a big move. A lot of planning goes into it. And many things should be considered. Selecting an interstate removalist tops the list and should be your starting point. Your search, however, should land you an interstate removals company that is going to be best suited for you. And for this reason, there are several things that you need to be aware of and consider before testing the waters.
Hopefully, by the end of this article, you’ll be able to narrow down your list of potential movers to a single mover. One you can trust for your removals. Someone you won’t need to break the bank to hire. And of course, one who will save you the headache of interstate moving.
So let’s jump straight into it!
First of all, before adding any Perth removals company to your list of potential removalists, you need to ensure the company is reputable and legitimate. Choosing a company that does not provide the right service for your needs will only cost you money and time, and even further complicate the moving process.
A good interstate removals company knows the value of creating a professional image, from branding to marketing. And it’s easy to identify one. Not by the fleet of moving trucks they have or the size of their offices. But by their website – and in this case a website with relevant content.
Get all information you need on the company by thoroughly checking their website. If that is not enough, see how the company stacks up with customers by searching the company in online reviews.
Once satisfied, contact the company and arrange a quote. Also, take this opportunity to ask plenty of questions and get some referrals. Otherwise, you can schedule a one-on-one meeting with a removalist from the company. This can help you feel more comfortable about the firm and get further insight on their level of service.
To avoid snarl-ups during the moving day, it is important to ensure the company will be available when you need their assistance. Booking earlier, probably 4 to 8 weeks in advance, will increase your chances of a smooth interstate move.
How long the company has been in business can give you a general idea of the company’s nature and the services they offer. It’s a big plus if the company has insurance and liability cover.
Being open and honest with the removalist can make the quotes more realistic and the whole process easier. To create a quote for you, the interstate removals company will require a full inventory of your belongings. That’s not all. The nature of your household items and the structure (or accessibility) of your property will also be considered in the quote making process. Fully disclosing such things can make the move much easier and less costly.
Remember your belongings and furniture will be out for long during the interstate move. The interstate removals company you pick should be one you can feel safe with and trust to handle your move. Once the goods are delivered at the new home, make sure nothing is damaged and everything is accounted for.
The journey to your new home should be enjoyable. Not a stressful ordeal. And selecting the right interstate removalist is the way to go.
