If you are moving interstate, you will find that it can be in your best interest to hire a professional removalist. There are many benefits that are associated with hiring a removalist when moving interstate and it is worth it for most people. Because you don’t hire removalists each and every day, it can help to get some tips on how to hire a great removal company when moving from New South Wales to another state.

Check Out Past Customer Experiences

One of the best things to do when looking for a removalist for an interstate move is to learn from the experience of others. In order to do this, you will need to make sure you are giving yourself enough time to research. The best way to do this is to get on the internet and simply search for reviews on the removalist of your choice. These days, people are quite vocal about what they like about companies and what they didn’t, so things like specific review sites, message boards and even a general search will typically yield some great results. The best part about looking at past customer experiences is that you will be able to eliminate any bad companies from the start, instead, you can spend your time with companies that are worthwhile.

Want to Save a Bit of Money?

Another tip that you can use when looking for an interstate removalist is to save money by doing some of the work yourself. Yes, it is true that removalists can pack for you, but if you do it yourself, you can save a little money. However, if you don’t pack correctly, you can end up spending more than you would if you let them pack for you. Here’s why…if you allow the removalist to pack your belongings, you will be certain that everything will fit in the fewest amount of boxes. Because you will likely have fewer boxes to move, your trusted removalists Inner West will be able to load and unload much more quickly. Since you are paying by the hour, this could add up very fast.

Compare Quotes

Finally, you will want to compare quotes fairly.  Do this by comparing apples to apples and not apples to oranges. In other words, it will not be fair to compare a company that gave you a quote for packing and moving with a company that only gives you a quote for packing. Of course, adding the packing in there will be a bit more expensive. Instead, you will want to look at the value of your dollar instead of the actual price. This way, you will know which company is a better value for your interstate move and which will be better for you in the end.

About The Author

Bill Chen

Before 2008, Bill was working with a local removalist company in Sydney and was witness for a number of deformities and wrongs in the working of the company. Observing the atmosphere, a thought came to Bill’s mind that he could do much better if he were the owner of the company, by offering a fully transparent service to the clients with a friendly and trustworthy staff and no hidden fee structure; and thus, in 2008, AAA Bill Removalists Sydney was formed with just one truck and only Bill as staff. Even if Bill Chen began the company as just one man, the company grew fast. The operation expanded beyond the Sydney suburbs and to the surrounding cities: Wollongong, Wagga Wagga, Albury, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Canberra, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, and other.
