Removalists – Trucks and muscles or fragile handling
Search for a removalist on True Local and take a look at what other locals had to say about them, so you can find a business that has been tried and tested, ready to hire.
Professional removalists are fast-moving teams of motivated individuals who like to get in and get the job done. As tempting and cost effective as a self-move may sound, professional removalists bring a wealth of strength, knowledge, specialised equipment and experience to every job. Where you could slip a disc, they have a hydraulic lift designed to move your fridge or bespoke Tasmanian oak dining set quickly and easily, saving both the table and your back.
The services offered are usually quite varied and will include:
- Household/office furniture removal
- Full house/office pack up and move
- Live animal transfers (regional and interstate)
- Specialist movers for sensitive equipment (such as grand pianos, hospital machinery, industrial machinery)
Household & office movers
Trucks and muscles is what you usually expect when you engage a local removalist in your area to take care of your household or office furniture. Depending on the company, they may offer a complete moving solution which even includes packing your belongings for you, transport to the new location and unpacking.
Tips for a painless move
- Have everything ready and waiting on Moving Day – if they’re not packing for you, make sure you’ve packed carefully and clearly labelled your boxes.
- Settle on an hourly rate before the move and ensure overtime rates, petrol levies and truck kilometres are clearly understood.
- Your removalist knows what they’re doing – try to remain on hand for questions but otherwise let them get on with the job.
- Understand liability insurance details – especially if your belongings are going on long haul moves.
Specialist movers for sensitive & fragile items
Care and careful planning before moving anything particularly large or sensitive will always pay off in the long run. If you’re looking for a particular type of removalist, spend the time until you find them. Try calling local firms and request quotes and insurance details – usually your local contacts will know someone in the business if they can’t help you themselves.
