Here, we discuss 7 tips to follow when hiring an interstate removalist in Canberra so that you make the best decision.
Moving interstate requires patience and care. As you plan to organise your belongings and prepare it for removal, it is important that you submit a quote request to the removalist so that you understand all the costs involved. At Dawson Moving and Storage we will assess your circumstances in detail and provide a comprehensive quotation inclusive of all costs and terms and conditions. We ensure that our clients receive a transparent estimate that will prevent any surprises at the end of the service.
Ask the removalist questions. Get to know them well and ensure that you have raised all queries. A professional interstate removalist will spend time answering your questions and understanding your concerns. Questions about costs, limitations, exclusions, insurance, pick-up and delivery timings, safety of the belongings, collection from within the home and drop-off within the home, unpackaging, bulky items, fragile items, and much more will need to be discussed and considered.
As you discuss the interstate transition with your interstate removalist it is important to create a checklist of all the items you wish to transfer. For peace of mind, go through the items you wish to have transferred so that you are not confused after delivery of the items where things are. This can also help you to identify additional services that might be required, such as, piano moving, antique removal, packaging, unpacking and sorting, etc.
You want to make sure that your goods arrive in a safe manner and that you are financially secure should anything happen to your belongings during transit. The unexpected can always occur and it is better to plan for any contingencies. Discuss this topic with your interstate removalist to understand their policies. At Dawson Moving and Storage, we have access to insurance policies that can be tailored to suit your needs.
There are many Canberra interstate removalists in the market. Whilst all companies will offer a similar base service, each company will try to gain a competitive edge with unique additional offerings.
