The Key Qualities of Great Furniture Removal Companies

Moving house is the second most stressful event in anyone's life, next to losing a loved one. Uprooting yourself and family, packing prized possessions into boxes, organising mail and utilities transfers, and moving your whole life into a new house, apartment or unit is incredibly daunting and at times overwhelming.


One of the keys to making this hectic time of your life more bearable and less of a hassle is to hire reliable furniture removalists Melbourne. The market can unfortunately contain a few dodgy operators and finding the best furniture removalist company for you can be a chore. But don't fear; for every bad apple there are 10 reliable and trustworthy companies. It is well worth obtaining a number of furniture removal quotes from different companies to ensure that you get the best value for your dollar. Give yourself an ample timeframe in which to research and choose a company for you. It is also worth investigating if your insurance company covers your contents for a move and if the removalist company has insurance of their own.


A good furniture removalist company will either answer your initial telephone enquiry or return your call or online request promptly. If a company doesn't bother returning your call it either means they don't need your business or it is a sign of their business practices. Sometimes recommendations from family, friends and acquaintances can be a good way to find a reliable company for your move.


Your removalist should be up front and honest about the costs involved in the move, including minimum billable hours, cost per hour and extra costs such as moves for multiple storey dwellings and interstate moves. If it is a big job for them and therefore worthwhile to them, you could even diplomatically discuss the possibility of a discounted rate for your move.


Your removalists should be well-presented, have a reliable and safe van or truck and be punctual and polite. They should take the utmost care with your prized possessions, your furniture and practice safe lifting and carrying techniques. The vehicle should be packed well and every item should be well secured and treated with diligence and due care.


The company should have an ABN and be willing and able to provide a tax invoice upon request. Some companies even offer packing services as well as moving your goods and furniture! Good luck and try to take it easy during this stressful period of your life!
