Removalists – How Trained Consultants Will Make Your Move Easier

04-Nov-2015: >>> Back to Articles

Finding the right removalists services to meet your specific needs is a key step in planning to relocate your belongings.

Having a moving house checklist is a good start, but your first step is to contact a removalist company with a consistent high level of service – one that has trained consultants that have the experience to assist you.

Following a few simple questions they will quickly determine whether they can provide an estimate over the phone or whether it would be best to visit you in your home. Either way a consultant can explain the entire move process and inform you about all of the services that are available. This will include issues such as:

  • Packaging & wrapping
  • Transportation modes and storage options
  • Destination delivery services including unpacking and reassembly of furniture
  • Special requirements for pets, vehicles or fragile items
  • Transit protection insurance

A consultant will help you choose the service delivery that best meets your needs, explain what to expect when you arrive at your new destination and answer all of your questions. Together, you can discuss preferred packing and delivery dates.

You will need specialist packing materials and removalist boxes to pack your belongings to the highest of standards.

Depending on your circumstances, your destination and the goods you are moving, you must be certain that you have the right materials that provide maximum protection. For example, do you need?

  • Cushioned Craft Paper
  • Custom crating
  • Tissue and corrugated bubble
  • Contour-packing
  • Lay-down cartons
  • Upright wardrobes
  • Purpose made packaging

On your pack day, your removalists should have a team leader that will confirm all the details that were discussed and agreed with your consultant. You should also point out those items that must not be packed including important documents, clothing, toiletries and other essentials should be set aside. Find a special location for these items and alert your team leader that these items must not be packed.

Once your goods have been carefully wrapped and packed they will be labeled and individually numbered. Your team leader will note each item on a “packing inventory.” At that point all items can be removed from your home and loaded for transit. On arrival at destination you will be able to use your copy of our packing inventory as a checklist.

Of course international or interstate removals aren’t just about relocating your household goods. There are many other treasured possessions that can be equally as important such as: motor vehicles, boats, trailers, camper vans, motorcycles and family pets. You may have particular concerns for high value items, collections or antiques. Your removalists should have the expertise to cover all bases for your move.

Your removalists will exercise a high level of care when packing, transporting, delivering and unpacking customer goods. However, make sure that you take every precaution to eliminate risk. Any relocation of personal belongings comes with inherent risks. Obtaining a comprehensive transit protection program for interstate removals offering full replacement cover is always recommended.

Choosing the interstate or international removalists such as Crown Relocations or perhaps your local Sydney removalists or removalists in Melbourne will give you confidence of a successful interstate removal, local or international relocation and that your belongings will reach their new home.
