You Need to Move – Are You Looking for a Moving Company?
Every house move is unique. To help you find the best furniture-removal company for the job, answer these questions:
Are you looking for a moving company that offers national or local removal services?
Most furniture-removal firms that operate locally charge more if they have to move furniture outside their operating radius. If, for instance, you want to move from a small town on the West Coast to a small town in the Eastern Cape and use a local furniture-removal company, they may calculate the cost of transporting your furniture and the cost of returning with an empty truck, so you pay for the return trip as well. However, if you are using a national mover, they have agents in every town and you do not have to pay for their trucks to return to their home base.
Are you looking for a moving company that can move loose items as well?
Many furniture-removal companies move only packed boxes and crates and wrapped furniture and may not be willing to move documents and antiques. Another problem is that you may not be able to pack the garden hose, swimming-pool net, and garden tools in boxes, so each item counts as a piece of furniture, adding to the move’s price. You want a removal company that understands your moving needs and can move antiques, artworks, fishing gear, canoes, bicycles, houseplants, and even your animals safely and securely.
Are you looking for a moving company that will do a free site visit?
Unless you have a straightforward inventory list of 50 boxes, two single beds, a double bed, a coffee table, a 3-seater couch and two chairs, chances are that the inventory form to get a furniture-removal quote will be inadequate. You are not an expert mover and at the time of requesting a quote, you have not even started packing. How can you know how many boxes you will need and whether hockey sticks in bags are seen as furniture or must be packed in boxes? Unless the moving company is willing to do a free consultation at your home, you cannot expect a 100% accurate quote. As such, work with one that can provide an on-site assessment in line with your moving needs.
Are you looking for a moving company that offers add-on services?
Do you have three vehicles and you are moving from one province to another? Your first dilemma is that you only have two drivers, so how do you get the additional vehicle and your boat to the new abode? You do not want to fly back, find transport home and then drive the vehicle with the boat in tow to your new town. If you use a moving company that offers add-on services such as pet relocation, storage, plant storage in greenhouse facilities, packing, vehicle transportation, and relocation guidance, you save time, money, and effort.
