3 Common Mistakes Not to Make Hiring Furniture Removalists
1. Using Removalists off Gumtree or Google Adwords
A few times a week we receive calls from customers that went with another furniture removalist company that was unbelievably cheaper. The phone call is normally to say the booked removalist wasn’t going to make their move on the day or that they couldn’t get some of the items upstairs.
As you can imagine this is far from professional standard.
Best case scenario is the removalists do show up, but the job takes longer because the removalists aren’t properly trained and they only cause minimal damage to your belongings.
Worst case scenario is the removalists don’t show up at all and by the time they enquire to see if we can help we are normally fully booked by then. They quickly go from paying $80 per hour to $180 per hour in trying to find some kind of emergency solution.
For good furniture removalists, expect to pay between $120 and $160 per hour. While we at Platinum are one of the cheapest removalists South Brisbane wide, we never compromise our service and professional attitude. All our furniture removalists are experts in the industry and will get your items safely to their destination with no damage. And because we are experts, we are efficient which really just ends up saving you money in the long run.
2. Trying to Cut Cost by Not Using Proper Furniture Removal Boxes
One of the most common mistakes we see is customers using cheap odd sized boxes for there move.
This is not a great option because:
- They normally tear apart easily while moving.
- It takes much longer to move small odd sized boxes.
- Most larger items will not fit in them.
- Tape does not stick to cheap or second hand boxes.
Just like many things in life, you get what you pay for. Please call us directly if you need assistance regarding what boxes would be best for your move.
3. Underestimating the Size and Time it Will Take to Complete Your Removal.
If there is on thing our removalists South Brisbane wide have noticed, it’s that many customers underestimate the time it takes to complete their furniture removal. This is mainly because they don’t allow time to dissemble beds and any other furniture, or allow for the time it takes to carry everything into the truck and wrap with our furniture removalists pads.
They are a lot of other variables including:
- Will the truck fit in the driveway?
- Is it easy access to the house?
- Are there large items to go upstairs which will require the railings to be padded?
- Will the fridge and other large items fit through the house front door?
If you are worried or unsure about time frames, please call us. With our industry experience we should be able to assist you with how long you potential move should take.
