removalist

When it comes to moving house, there are many things on your mind. One of them; the logistics of how to relocate your entire household to a new property without losing or breaking anything. The solution? A local removalist company. Of course, you can’t just pick a removalist out of thin air, there’s a process you need to go through in order to find the best one for you.

Recommendations

The first and easiest place to start is with recommendations from family, friends, neighbours and the internet. Customer reviews provide a great scope of what removalists do and how they have treated their past customers. It’s important to take every review you read with a grain of salt though.

AFRA approval

The Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA) is one of the governing bodies in the removals industry. To become a member of AFRA, removals companies must pass regular audits conducted by the body. Removal companies are audited on their maintenance of vehicles, appropriate packing materials, first aid kits for staff, driver fatigue management and police checks for every employee. Grace are one of approximately 350 furniture removal companies that are members of AFRA.

Research services

Make sure the removalists you’re looking at offer the services you need. Some will offer an inclusive removal service that only includes packing and transporting your home. Look for specialist services such as home cleaning, pet and vehicle moving and storage services. At Grace, we work by our motto ‘Always More’ and provide more services, all the time.

Ask questions

Trusting a removalist to move your entire household is a big deal so it makes sense that you’d have questions to ask. There are a number of important questions you should ask your removalist before agreeing to hire them. To ask Grace any questions, contact us today.

Insurance

Does the removalist you’re thinking of hiring offer insurance? Insurance is the best way to safeguard your belongings and household items against loss and damage. Make sure you understand what the removalist covers and doesn’t cover, and in which circumstances the insurance applies.
