When it comes time to move, regardless of the size of your move, it is important to choose the best removalists. Perth property owners may be tempted to rely on family and friends, but this can be a costly mistake. After all, your family and friends are not likely to have professional experience and skills, which could lead to your items not being properly packed and at risk of damage during the move. Since choosing home removals is so important, you need to ensure that you choose the right company for your requirements. So, here are some tips to help you choose the best company.
Ask For Recommendations
Word of mouth is one of the most reliable ways to find any great service provider. If you’ve asked family members, friends, neighbours and work colleagues for recommendations, you can have confidence that you’ve heard an honest opinion about the value, service and customer care. Just remember that you should rely on up to date information, so you don’t really need to hear about who moved your parents into their first home thirty years ago.
Look for Reviews
Unfortunately, you may not be fortunate enough to have a contact who has had a recent and positive moving experience. Don’t despair! The age of the internet has made it easier to conduct your own research and get insight into the services on offer. Look for review sites and forums that discuss local companies. Read through the reviews and check for any red flags. Remember that some people will always find something to complain about, so take some reviews with a pinch of salt. However, if there are multiple reviews highlighting the same issue, it is worth investigating.
Check What’s Included
While it is tempting to just opt for the cheapest quote, it is essential that you’re comparing like for like. That cheap quote may be cheap for a reason. Some companies omit insurance and other “extras” from their estimates. This means that when you add these items in and compared them to the other quotes, they are not actually that competitive. When you are comparing estimates, you should be comparing like for like, so check what is and is not included.
Finally, it is worth assessing what additional services are offered. For example, you may find professional packing services is beneficial. Professional packers can save you valuable time and alleviate your stress, as you can be reassured that all of your items are protected during the journey to your new property. Additionally, your removalists may offer storage solutions, to allow you to move excess items out of your home while you’re selling the property to make your house look more spacious, or move your out of season items to make moving day easier.
