You're probably nervous about the day of your removal and want everything to go as smoothly as possible. This is sensible, as many people have been through a painful or disastrous removal. It is important to understand how to manage your furniture removals business.
Here are some tips:
It can be hard to manage a company that isn't professional or competent. The moral of this story is to ensure you choose a competent and furniture moving services in Melbourne. Refer to references and use a well-respected and professional furniture removals firm. Don't settle for the lowest quote.
As part of your quotation process, insist that potential providers visit your property and examine your contents. Do not make a decision based on a "sight unseen" estimate. This would make you vulnerable to the " I didn’t know that" response from the removal company when they show up to do the job. That’s the first step to escalating your costs or a bad job.
In writing, confirm everything including collection dates/times, and on-delivery. Do not accept casual promises from mateys' over the phone. They are useless if they go wrong later and you seek redress.
You should make sure the removal company confirms in writing that any heavier, more difficult or larger items are included.
You should ensure that you are able to move around and keep an eye on the packing. You need to strike a balance between keeping an eye on the packing and not getting in the way. Or worse, micro-managing the removalists and packers.
When your furniture and cartons are being loaded onto the car, do so. You should ensure that your furniture is securely secured to the vehicle's side by using strapping and that blankets or other protection are applied to all furniture.
