Posted on Jun 17th, 2015

Human nature is to shop price; so, it is only to be expected that when we shop for a removalist in Sydney NSW, price is a target just as with any other shopping. Most removalists in the Greater Sydney are competitively priced, but not all are the same; so, let’s take a look at a few tips that will help you to determine the best removalists. And, remember, price does not determine the quality of a removalist. Only the affordability, which sometimes can end up costing more in the long run as poor quality movers can result in damaged goods.

 How to Hire a Good Removalist in Sydney


First, removalists are hired for one reason; to simplify a relocation or move. Without a removals service, the concerns of a move are impacted with a tremendous amount of stress. Removalists help to ease the stress as the companies have the experience required for safe move.

The goal in hiring a removalist company in Sydney is to hire a company that not only is affordable, but one that has the experience in moving, is equipped with the proper equipment and vehicles, is dependable and trust worthy and has a solid track record of happy customers. The company should offer the least amount of risk in damages as possible. When hiring a company for residential & commercial removals, you will want to consider the following.



While you might think that moving is simply getting some bubble wrap and boxes and packing your items away and having a moving company there on moving day, there is a bit more to it than that. The first thing you will want to consider when hiring a removalist in Sydney is how long the company has been in business. Reputations are built on experience, and this is one question you’ll want to ask, especially for those bids that seem to come in extremely low. Experience is not a guarantee that your move will be performed without a glitch, but it does hold a certain degree of certainty as experience spells skill and the proper knowledge and skill that is essential in a moving company. Experience also is helpful when it comes to advising, as most moving companies with experience will have plenty of advice to offer, such as safety measures, packing and unpacking, moving with children and / or animals, etc.

You also want to ensure that the company is professional. Ask yourself if the company has company moving vehicles. Ask what employees their staff consists of. Do they wear uniforms? Do they have professional business cards with a company logo? Are their estimates printed with their company logo? What training do the staff members have especially the movers? What about driving experience and driving records? What is their policy?

If the company comes up shy, then move onto the next. Professionalism is important as it is a sign of how well things are cared for, and you do not want a fly by night operation handling your furniture removal Sydney or your important belongings. You also want to ensure that the company offers you a contract to sign prior to moving date. The contract should be a detailed contract with terms and conditions stated clearly like the company’s policy should damage occur to your items. Read through the contract thoroughly and anything that you are unsure of, ask the company to explain. You need to understand the contract thoroughly, or you are setting yourself up for failure and cost. The total amount of the moves should be disclosed with no hidden costs.

You will also want to check on the company’s insurance. Here, ask for a copy of the insurance, as you want to ensure that your goods will be properly insured should something happen. Any professional relocation company will be properly insured and will be able to provide proof of the insurance.

Also, any company that you are considering hiring, should be able to provide referral of past customers whose moves have been similar to yours. Here, you not only have the advantage of asking the company for references, you can also jump on the Internet and read reviews of what other customers who have dealt with the company have to say. This is a good way to check on the company as reviews are unbiased.
