Your removalist can make or break moving day and can be the difference between a stressful, rushed day or a smooth, hassle-free process. It goes without saying that you need to choose a reputable removalist but with so many companies out there, how do you know if you’ve made the right choice? Let’s take a look at some of the signs of a good removalist Perth so you don’t have to wait until moving day to find out!
1. Positive feedback
One of the best signs that you’ve found a good removalist is that they have positive feedback from previous customers. Whether it’s a word of mouth recommendation from friends or family or online reviews, this is a great indicator of the experience you’ll have. You can usually find reviews and feedback on the company’s website, Google reviews, and social media.
2. Extensive experience in the industry
When it comes to finding a quality removalist, the more experience the better. Removals can be more complicated that they look and an experienced team can offer a smooth transition and overcome any issues that may come up. Take a look on the website to see if a company outlines their experience or give them a call and ask a few questions.
3. Insurance cover for your items
Any reputable removalist should have insurance cover in place to cover your goods in transit. This cover means that if your items are damaged, lost or stolen while in transit, the company will be able to cover these costs. Your removalist should also have public liability insurance in place as standard. No matter how cheap a company’s prices are, it’s just not worth the risk without insurance in place.
4. Willing to assist with special items
There are certain items that some removalists won’t take on so it’s a good idea to find a company who are comfortable with specialised furniture removals. This could include very heavy items, awkward furniture, antique items or custom pieces which need to be handled with care. If you have any items which you think need extra attention, make sure your removalist perth is aware of it and happy to go ahead.
5. Easy quotes and clear rates
There should be no hidden costs or nasty surprises on moving day so look for a company who offers transparency with their rates. Their rates should be clearly outlined on their website and the company should also be happy to give an obligation free quote once you give them more details. Also look for easy payment on the day – a company with mobile EFTPOS facilities makes life a lot easier!
