Melbourne is one of the most beautiful cities in all of the world. It has one of the highest net migration rates in the world with over 400,000 new people each year calling it home. As such, the removalist industry in Melbourne is thriving and your choice of partner when moving house in Melbourne is broad.
We’ve created a guide which will help you choose the right removal company in Melbourne to ensure your goods are looked after to the highest degree.
1. Ask the perspective moving company how many times they have moved a house from where you live to Melbourne. It may sound silly but local knowledge is key when performing a removalist job. Are there big hills in the area, are there low bridges? If they don’t have the experience, don’t hire them.
2. Do they use their own staff members for the Melbourne Removalist jobs, or do they use contractors? In house staff members are obviously better and contractors are more likely to damage your goods and not let you know about it. This is a huge factor for me.
3. How old is the truck they are using, and when was it serviced last. This one is also very important. Last week I saw a removal truck in Melbourne which was spray painted on the side, its rear suspension was obviously shot as it almost rolled when it turned a corner. I don’t want my precious items traveling in that truck!
4. How much do they cost per hour. And the trick here is don’t go with the cheapest supplier. Cheapest always means nastiest in the removal industry. I would advise that you get 4 quotes and knock out the cheapest and then choose your preferred removalist based on the above points.
So there you have it. Take these key factors into account when thinking about the removalist company you use when moving to Melbourne.
