What You Need to Know Before Choosing a Furniture Removal Company
Moving house can be a rather traumatic experience. You have settled, made friends, developed a community, and now you will lift your roots to go to another city. It is difficult enough to leave your home behind for a new abode, after having lived in it for years. However, having to move across the country to another city can be a daunting task, best handled by one of the professional furniture removal companies.
To help you prepare for the move and to minimise your stress, we provide you with a few tips on packing when using furniture removal companies.
Choose the Right Packing Materials
Use the right materials when packing, such as sturdy boxes. Do not settle for the ones you can get behind grocery stores. The boxes have already been used and lack the sturdiness required for protecting your valuables. Ask our team about boxes for moving or purchase such boxes from a wholesale supplier.
Furniture removal companies can only do so much to protect your valuables. If you want to pack the items yourself, rather than using the packing services of professional furniture removal companies, get bubble wrap for the sensitive and breakable items. A little extra during the packing will keep your valuables safe.
Avoid using newspapers for wrapping, as the print is likely to leave marks on your valuables. Rather purchase unprinted wrapping paper.
Invest in plastic crates for goods that must be stored for a while. It will help to prevent moisture and dust damage. In addition, sealed plastic containers prevent insect damage to your belongings.
List the Items for the Move
Professional furniture removal companies require a complete list of the number of boxes and items to be moved. In addition, you will need to create a list of all the items that have been packed. Should any items be lost during the move, you will be able to identify what is missing if there is a list. When you make use of our furniture removal services, we will provide you with the necessary assistance in determining the load and creating the inventory.
Of course, it is not just about packing. It is also about choosing the right furniture removal firm.
How to Choose the Right Service Provider
Not all furniture removal companies specialise in the same thing. You need to know what it is exactly that you want them to do for you. Do you want to move your office, vehicle, or all the household items? Elliott Mobility can do the above and more.
You also want to be sure that the company is not a brand-new company, as experience counts. Elliott Mobility has more than six decades of experience in the moving business, making us one of the most experienced furniture removal companies in South Africa.
Ask about insurance. If the company has insurance, you know that even in the worst-case scenario, your possessions are covered. At Elliott Mobility, we have insurance that covers all the necessary items. We are insured at Hollard and provide administrative assistance with insurance claims.
Do not be shy when it comes to asking questions. Knowing the terms and conditions that are in place, what the cost will be, how long it will take, and which payment methods are accepted is important.
