Selecting a moving company that’s right for you

Many people are faced with moving home at some point in their lives. Maybe you are one of them. And the more you consider the prospect of allowing strangers to come and load up all your possessions, the more anxious you feel! But with some common sense, and proactive action from your side you can reduce many of the risks you currently have floating around in your head right now.

The first thing you need to do is make sure you are dealing with a real, reputable company based in Brisbane. The last thing you need is having all the contents of your house driven off in a large truck which is then involved in a disaster such as a road accident or fire. And then finding out later your moving company does not have insurance! Or worse still, allowing a gang of criminals to load all your possessions onto their truck and to happily wave them, and your possessions goodbye forever! So it’s worthwhile asking your potential movers what insurance they have, and how it works to protect your goods. Also, make sure the furniture removals firm in brisbane you are considering is actually a company! Most will be a registered business, and have office premises.

After you have a list of potential moving companies in the Brisbane area, your next task is to get some references. If you don’t personally know people who have used them previously, ask the company themselves for a list of references. Call the people up and have a chat! Tell them you are considering using the company, and would like to hear about their experiences. Most reputable companies will have no problem providing you with such a list. If they refuse, it’s definitely alarm bells – because either they don’t have previous clients or they do, but they are upset!

And finally, just be sure you understand exactly what their service offers and what you are getting. Many movers don’t actually pack your possessions up – they simply come to collect the boxes you have already packed up. The same goes for your home, do they unpack your possessions when you get there, or do they simply unload their truck?

So as you can see, with a little common sense you can reduce your risks of allowing an unknown company to come and load up all your possessions! Just make sure they are reputable, with decent references and insurance in place. And then just make sure you know exactly what you are paying for, and what you can expect from them.
