4 Additional Services to Consider When Using Removalists

You have come to a point in your life wherein change is on the horizon. Whether you are upsizing, downsizing, moving halfway across the world, or just down the street, you have to sort your possessions out in order to start over somewhere else.

When it comes to selecting a removals company, you want to find one that has a strong reputation for reliability and professionalism, but there are also a few more services you should want them to offer.

Here are four additional services to consider when using removalists.

1. Storage

Depending on where you are moving and how long you are moving for, you may be in need of a place to store your belongings. Whether it is just for a short amount of time, or a more long-term arrangement, having a designated place to keep your possessions safe and secure is crucial.

Working with a removal firm that also offers storage space is an easy way to keep the whole moving process streamlined and decreases the need for additional handling and transportation of your items.  

Look to work with a company that creates an inventory of your belongings, as well as one that has a robust security and pest control system. You want to be assured that you are leaving your worldly possessions in a space that is fully secure and maintained.

2. Insurance

No matter which company you choose to use as your trusted removalists in Campbelltown (or wherever you live), it is still in your best interest to opt to take out storage and removals insurance. This will ensure you are protecting your belongings with the maximum coverage, and it will help you sleep better at night knowing everything is under control.

Hopefully, the removal company you use does everything in their power to keep your possessions safe and out of harm’s way; however, you can’t always predict everything that is going to happen, and you want to make sure you have coverage that protects you no matter what.

Unfortunately, accidents can happen, even with a removal company that has an excellent record when it comes to looking after customers possessions. So, keep in mind that just because the removal company is insured doesn’t necessarily mean that the same coverage also protects you as the customer.

Speak with your removal company about the possible options and always read the fine print so that you know what level of coverage you are getting.

3. Packing Assistance

No one wants to start unboxing their belongings in their new home, only to find that things are broken or damaged due to a lack of proper packing. However, packing all your belongings can be an overwhelming task, and many people skimp on the quality of the packing materials they use, as well as the time they invest in wrapping it all up.

If you are concerned about your packing skills, or that you don’t have enough time to adequately spend on boxing up your possessions, then working with a removal firm that offers packing assistance may be the perfect option.

Their highly trained packing professionals can pack and unpack your belongings and ensure that you are using the correct wrapping and packaging materials. This ensures that your clothes, family heirlooms, personal possessions and everything else arrive at your new destination without damage.

4. Pet Transport

When moving house, it isn’t just you and your significant other or your housemates that you need to think about — what about your best furry friend? Moving homes, cities, or offices can be a stressful experience for most animals and, if not handled appropriately,  can lead to sickness and depression.

If you have a pet, then choosing a removal company that offers professional pet transportation should be a high priority for you. For the most enjoyable and healthy experience for both you and your pet, work with a removal company that has highly trained pet handlers who have the knowledge and expertise to get your pet from point A to point B in the best way possible.

For example, these services may include door to door pet relocation and temporary boarding and bathing.
