How to choose the right removalists for your move

When you are planning to move home, it can be daunting. You have to pack all the kids’ toys, your clothes, and the kitchen utensils, not to mention all those excess cushions you seem to have accumulated. And then there’s the furniture. In fact, ‘61% of people rank moving at the top of their stress list.’ But selecting the right removalists can make all the difference. 


With plenty of moving company options available, it can be totally worth taking some time to work out what you want out of a removalist company and how they will best serve you so you can make an informed decision. Because the key is a stress-free move with movers, you can trust, right?

Below, we’ve explored key factors when selecting removalists for a smooth, stress-free relocation experience.

Choosing removalists tip #1: Research and compare options


Start by researching removalist companies in your area. Look for reputable companies with positive reviews and ratings from previous customers. As well as comprehensive information on what you can expect from their service and how to best prepare. 

Pay attention to any specialisations or areas of expertise that align with your relocation requirements. For example, A to B Furniture Removals is renowned for our regular routes from Adelaide to Brisbane and Brisbane to Adelaide, plus Sydney to Melbourne and back. As well as local Adelaide moves.

Choosing removalists tip #2: Assess experience and expertise


Rank removalists with extensive experience handling home relocations, especially if you have specific requirements or valuable belongings or this is your first time moving. 

You are encouraged to enquire about the expertise of the removalist team, including their training, equipment, and techniques for packing, loading, and transporting items safely.

At A to B Furniture Removals, we have over 30 years in the industry, so you can believe we have seen it all and know how to handle any situation with diplomacy and efficiency. There’s a reason why we have lasted so long in the business!

Choosing removalists tip #3: Request transparent quotes

Contact multiple removalist companies to request quotes based on your relocation needs. Be clear about the volume of items, distance, and any additional services required.

Opt for removalists who provide transparent and detailed quotes, including breakdowns of costs for services such as packing materials, insurance, and storage (if needed).

It’s not always about the cheapest, either. It’s about the company that cares about creating a stress-free move for you, so you don’t have to incur any additional costs, like breakage or damage or extra nights in hotels, because the removalists aren’t as efficient as they promised. Our expert removalist company prides itself on being cost effective, without scrimping on a quality and friendly service.

Choosing removalists tip #4: Verify insurance coverage


Ensure the removalist company offers adequate insurance coverage for your belongings during transit. This protects you against any potential damages or losses during the relocation process. Because no matter how well-planned you are, sometimes you’re thrown a curve ball. And isn’t peace of mind worth it? We are fully insured with up to $100,000 minimum cover included free of charge for new and existing customers.


Choosing removalists tip #5: Customer service and communication


Pay attention to the level of customer service and communication provided by removalist companies. Choose a company that is responsive, attentive to your needs, and communicates clearly throughout the relocation process. Friendliness and understanding can go a long way when you are undertaking one of the most monumental things in your life.  


Testimonials from previous customers are a great way to gauge the quality of the removalist’s service and professionalism. People often say that we are friendly and helpful. For example:


‘We recently moved using AtoB Furniture Removals, and they were fantastic. Chris and the team were very professional and excellent communicators. My questions were answered quickly, the crew turned up on time, got everything moved the same day, and kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. I find moving house super stressful, so a big thanks to Chris, Will and Jase (I think) for taking care of us,’ Emily R.


‘A big thank you to Will and Dylan for their most meticulous approach to our challenging move involving a storage facility combined with a house-to-house move. Extremely time efficient, all the time taking the utmost care. Most pleasant approach and manner. Highly recommended,’ Anne Moschou


Choosing removalists tip #6: The add-ons


Evaluate whether the removalists offer additional services that may enhance your relocation experience, such as packing, unpacking, furniture assembly, or storage solutions. 

Assess the cost-effectiveness and convenience of bundling these services with your relocation package, especially if you have limited time or require assistance with specific tasks.


With the help of reputable removalists, you can look forward to a stress-free moving experience from start to finish so you can just move in to your new home (or office) and begin your new life.
