What to look for when hiring a good home removal company in Sydney
So, you’ve decided to move. You’ve found a new home, negotiated the price, but now you’re stuck. You’ve made the decision to pay a removalist to ease your stress on moving day. But how to choose the right one? Why such a difference in price? From expensive overarching services companies, to cheap removals Sydney offers it all. Let us help you with what to look for.
This really should be a non-negotiable, regardless of the price negotiated. If you’re using a moving company, they really need to have these protections for your property. It’s just a fact that no matter how careful, and good the movers might be, things can happen. And when they do, it’s the insurance that will help.
Clear and Simple Quotes
The only real exception here is for an interstate move, where it might be quite hard to accurately quote. In most other circumstances, the best removalists Maroubra or Marrickville has to offer should be able to give you an easy to understand, and accurate quote and this should be put in writing without any difficulties. Once quoted, this price should not change and so the more they put into providing the right quote from the get go, the better.
All removalists offer at least a basic service of moving your belongings. You may not be aware that the best ones will also offer other services, for instance providing packing materials such as boxes. Some even better ones still may offer more services such as packing and unpacking for you! Personally, I have found the best ones also offer you advice and even some tips for moving as part of being a trusted advisor as well, not just a business looking to earn some money.
Online Reviews and Client Feedback
We are certainly living in a digital age of public opinion and reviews. There’s a good reason for this, as people who have utilised a company’s service now get more of a voice. It’s a good idea to research these when making your decision, however, I always say do not rely completely on them.
Many companies may have 4 out of 5 stars on Google from 1000 reviews, but actually give you a better service than 4.9 stars rated company with 5 reviews. However, a company with 3 stars or under is definitely a red flag!
Fast Response Times
It’s always a good sign when a company responds quickly to you – valuing new business and your time is definitely what you want from your new removalists! If you make an enquiry on the website and get a response within the hour or less, this is a good start.
A Calm, Reassuring Presence
Let’s be honest, you’re going to be panicked and stressed at times during the move. The last thing you want is someone who will get frazzled when you do. Make sure to sound out the company during your interactions for this – telltale signs could be seeming too busy when on the phone with you, not giving you full attention during your interactions.
Looking for these traits will ensure you have a successful move with a top removal company. Happy moving!
