moving questions 

    You’ve shared information with your potential furniture removalists. Now it’s their turn. Here are some crucial questions to ask:

    1. Do you subcontract?
    2. Is your quote complete or are there extra charges not included?
    3. What happens to my deposit? Determine whether your deposit is refundable. Clarify payment terms upfront.
    4. What accreditation or industry memberships do you hold? It is wise to choose furniture removalists who at least have Australian Furniture Removals Association [AFRA] membership.
    5. Please outline your liability throughout the move. Some removalists don’t cover you for damage if you’ve self-packed unless they are clearly involved in damaging goods. Know the extent of their liability upfront.
    6. Are you insured? Get the insurance company name and removalists’ policy number. Never choose furniture removalists who lack adequate insurance.
    7. Please provide references. Recommendation and reputation are strong indicators. If previous movers speak of positive experiences, you’ve probably found a good removalist!
    8. Are my belongings kept secure throughout the move? Ensure furniture removalists will secure your belongings from door to door.

    Your removalists can determine your moving experience. So choose wisely. Ensure your precious belongings and furniture are in expert hands.
