You’ve probably heard some horror stories about dodgy removalists who damage items, don’t turn up on time, and generally make moving day even more stressful. If your moving day is approaching and you’re ready to book your removalist, you need to be confident that they’ll do a good job. Let’s take a look at some of the questions you should ask potential perth removalists to help find a quality company.
1. How much experience do you have?
Although it may look easy, moving everything to a new house is a bit of an art and you need to be confident that your removalists have the necessary experience to get it done. Ask about the level of experience of their team and also look at reviews on their website and social media to see the quality of their service.
2. What’s included in your price?
When you get a quote from a removalist, ask what’s included in this price. You need to be confident that there won’t be any unexpected costs which appear on moving day. Don’t assume that everything is automatically included and get assurances that the quote won’t change once your booking has been made.
3. What steps do you take to protect fragile items?
Make sure you ask questions around the steps that your removalist takes to protect your items, particularly pieces which are fragile. They should be able to explain the steps they’ll take, such as using large moving blankets to avoid damage. If you have particularly fragile or antique pieces, let them know ahead of time so they can take extra care.
4. Can you transport specialist/awkward items?
The last thing you need on moving day is to discover that your removalists can’t transport certain items. If you have awkward items, such as kayaks or exercise bikes, ask your removalist ahead of time if they have the capacity to transport them for you.
5. Do you have insurance?
This is an important question to ask. Although you’d hope that nothing will go wrong while your possessions are in transit, sometimes the unexpected can occur and you want to be confident that any theft, loss or damage will be covered by insurance. If a removalist tries to tell you that they don’t need to have insurance in place or that it’s not necessary, move on!
