Moving does not have to be a stressful experience. Local and Interstate Removals have paid particular attention to several common misconceptions that arise when providing furniture removal services throughout Australia and interstate to cities such as Sydney and Melbourne. And guess what? They remain consistent regardless of our destination.
So we're here to assist in putting a stop to ten of them!
- You can save money by doing it yourself rather than paying movers.
Notably, many believe that moving independently is more accessible and less expensive than hiring a removalist. Not everything on this list will be evident at first, but it will add up to a substantial amount of time and money spent moving:
Time away from work to pack and move is compensable but lost.
Purchasing boxes and packing supplies
I am driving a hired automobile, truck, or other vehicle.
The price of gasoline
Giving money or free food and drink to relief workers as a reward,
- It doesn't matter what you carry with you.
Using moving boxes rather than any ordinary box you can find is critical. Free boxes from the supermarket or the local fruit stand will not hold a candle to the sturdy moving boxes available, putting your possessions at risk if they break. Oh, and did I mention the newspaper?
Is it just me, or does the blank ink get everywhere, including on your hands? Everything is a jumbled mess! We firmly promote the use of packaging paper.
3) Marking boxes and tracking inventory is redundant and inconvenient.
We assure you that we understand. The time and effort invested in labeling and inventorying is well worth it.
When packing, it's easy to believe you'll remember what's in each box, but untagging everything makes unpacking and rearranging your new house a chore. We promise that if you haven't tagged and filed anything, unpacking will take you longer.
4) You must load everything separately and quickly.
Many people must be aware that removalists Central Coast also offer packing services. Hiring a professional can help you save time and ensure everything is properly labeled and inventoried.
5) Choosing one is optional Because all removal businesses are the same and charge the same price.
This needs to be corrected. Removalists, like all persons, are not created equal. We take great delight in ensuring that every move goes off without a hitch, and it gives us great joy to know that we are assisting our clients rather than adding to their stress. Your specific needs will determine our cost.
6) If you hire a moving firm, something will break.
Again, incorrect. Because of our high-quality work and rigorous attention to detail, Local and Interstate Removals enjoy a good reputation and committed consumers.
People make errors, but when your items are carefully packed in our truck, we are less likely to harm them than if they were spread across the backseat of your sister's boyfriend's car.
7) The removalists' insurance will cover everything.
This is no longer the case because no entity verifies that all removalists have insurance. Before you book a removal firm, ensure they have insurance and what it covers.
Full coverage insurance can be costly, but it can offer you peace of mind if something happens to your belongings.
8) Weekends are ideal for relocation.
Because many people work from 9am to 5pm, they believe Fridays and weekends are generally the greatest and cheapest days to relocate.
Moving during the week will save you money on removalists in Marrickville charges, but we recognise that with Saturday and Sunday just on the corner, you'll have more time to move and unpack. We save time because we avoid the headache of dealing with weekend traffic!
9) It is time for you to relocate to your new home.
Please only take your belongings into your new home once you have thoroughly inspected it and noted any faults or damage, even if the paperwork shows that the property is move-in ready.
This allows you to troubleshoot any issues and prevents you from having to pay for someone else's effort.
10) Buying new furniture is more manageable, less expensive, and less stressful than transferring all your old furnishings.
After examining catalogs or observing store displays, it may be tempting to purchase new furniture; after all, there will be fewer items to move and less space in the truck, so it should be easier and less expensive.
Remember that some components are flat-packed and likely require more time to assemble than you anticipated! At times, using what you have may be more cost-effective.
