How to Choose the Right Sunshine Coast Removal Company

Moving is incredibly stressful. Whether you are moving your home or office across town or across the country, the thought (and logistics) of packing everything and moving it to a new location can be overwhelming. Removal companies are typically supposed to make this task easier, but when it comes time to choose the right Sunshine Coast removals company, what should you look for?

The Proper Paperwork

When choosing a removalist, it’s important to know if they have all of the necessary licenses, insurance, and registration needed to do business. It may seem appealing to hire your brother’s wife’s cousin’s nephew because he’s cheap, but if something goes wrong, you could wind up very sorry. 

References and Testimonials

It’s one thing to hear from a salesperson that a moving company is great. It’s another thing entirely to hear from customers who have actually gone through the entire process. Check the website or ask your sales or customer service person to provide you with some references or testimonials from clients who have used them before. 

Beware of Odd Payment Terms

Most reputable removal companies will require payment at the conclusion of your move. Some will request a small deposit to reserve your date and truck, and that’s perfectly ok. But if the mover demands full payment up front or does not provide you with an itemized estimate or bill, you should be wary. 

You should also have a clear understanding of the exact method the company uses to calculate your total bill. Good movers will be open and transparent when it comes to all costs. Companies that avoid this topic or are unclear, or evasive should be avoided. Understand what the upfront costs are, if extra charges are incurred over certain distances, whether the company charges you for tolls, etc. 

Understand the Logistics

Are you expected to pack your belongings or does the removal company do the packing? Is there an extra charge if they pack or do you pay the same in either case? Logistical issues like this are important when choosing a removalist. Good companies will also ask a lot of questions about the logistics of getting your items in and out of each location. It’s essential that you provide them the most and best information possible so that there are no surprises the day of the move. Unexpected issues can end up costing you extra money when the day is over.

Safety First

Moving is a physical activity, and reputable movers respect the health and safety of their staff. Ask the company if they have written safety procedures and request a copy. These safety procedures should be readily available and should outline their position on safe moving. Any company that doesn’t respect their staff or your items should not be on your short list of companies to use. 

Take Your Time

When choosing a removalist, plan well in advance. Conducting a proper move takes time, so you’ll want to choose your company far ahead of the date you wish to relocate. A good company will work with you to create a detailed quote, answer all your questions and help you plan out your move day. So wherever you are moving look for the best Sunshine Coast removals.
