Things To Know Before You Hire A Removalist

by Dustin Cruz

If you are planning a move in the near future, and you're going to hire a removalist for the first time, there are some things you have to know before you make your selection. When you're armed with this information, you can ensure that your first experience will run smoothly, and that you will get all the services that these professionals can offer you.

They Won't Move Anything Hazardous

You may be surprised at what removalists consider 'hazardous,' because in some cases, it isn't something that you would normally associate as being dangerous. But you should be aware that in most cases, removalists will not move solvents, paint thinner, oil, aerosol cans, paint cans and pesticides. Removalists want to do anything they can to avoid liability risks, and transporting these materials increases that risk, so be prepared to move those items on your own.

They Can Do All The Packing And Unpacking For You

Although removalists are known for transporting your goods from one place to another, they are also available to pack all your items into boxes, load them onto their moving truck and unpack those items at the new location. You can choose a full packing service, in which the removalist packs your entire home, including providing boxes, padding and wrapping for fragile items, or a half-packing service, which only covers the packing of valuable items such as a grandfather clock or other antiques.

Similarly, a full-unpacking service covers a removalist unpacking all your items at the new location and placing them exactly where you want them, including kitchen and bathroom items, and a half-unpacking service covers a removalist unpacking and setting up only your valuable items.

They Can Clean Your Old And New Places

Whether you're moving to a new home or a new office, a removalist can offer you cleaning services for both the place you are leaving and the place you are going. Cleaning service is beneficial if you are leaving a rental home for which you paid a deposit, because often times, the cleanliness of your premises dictates whether you receive your full deposit back, or just a portion. Removalists offer full cleaning services that include sweeping, vacuuming, polishing wood floors and carpet cleaning. Ordering this service assures that you will leave a spotless home or office, and arrive at a spotless home or office, which can be a huge comfort given all the stress associated with a relocation.
