Avoid Horrendous Moving Day Disaster with 2 Easy Tips

Everyone wants moving day to go smoothly. The house removalists come, load up your perfectly packed goods, take them to your new home, and then unload them—each in its proper place. No worries, right?

Maybe that’s the way it goes in the movies. Most often, though, there are a few glitches along the way. But you can avoid the worst of the worst disasters by following these tips:

1. Vet House Removalists to Avoid Scams

Before you hire a house moving company, check out their reviews on the Internet. Ask your friends and colleagues who they would recommend. Check them out to make sure they have a brick-and-mortar location. Have a look around to make sure they’re legitimate.

Too many people just hire the first removalist they find when they search online. Anyone can put up a website. If they aren’t findable in real life, they may be a scam company. We at Zoom Removals Sydney have heard far too many stories about people who hire a relocation company, give them a down payment, only to have the house removalists never show up. To ensure high quality, dependable work, make sure the ones you hire are approved by the removal industry’s highest governing board, the Australian Furniture Removers Association.

2. Hire Only Experienced, Professional Removalists

Even more familiar is the story about how homeowners hired an inexperienced company or relied on the help of friends and neighbours to move their goods. Unless a removalist has years of experience with packing and hauling belongings properly, you risk scratched furniture, ripped upholstery, broken china, and broken dreams.

To avoid such heartbreak, simply do your homework before you hire. Hire only licensed removalists with a good reputation. Make sure you have purchased insurance that will cover your goods in case of an accident. Though well-trained removalists will pack and move your belongings with the utmost care, they can’t account for the rogue driver that swerves left of centre, hitting the moving truck. Insure your belongings and you’ll have fewer worries.
