Getting a quote is one of the first things you should do when you begin planning an interstate move.
Once you’ve got an idea of roughly what its going to cost to move your furniture to your new place, you can begin planning for it.
Generally there are five ways we can provide you a removal quote.
The full inventory.
If the whole family is moving, and you’ve got a big home, then you’ll probably have a lot of furniture.
Itemizing everything individually gives you the ability to adjust it item by item at a later date.
This is the most ideal way to submit your items for us to provide you a quote, because it allows the most flexibility. CLICK HERE
The cubic quotation
These are ideal if you’ve currently got goods stored in a shed/storage locker etc that you need to move.
If you’ve got your goods in with a storage company, they can generally tell you the total cubic meterage (otherwise known as volume) of your unit.CLICK HERE
The copied list
Maybe you’ve already filled out other lists, or you’ve written everything down on your phone and don’t want to have to redo it over again. You can also upload any inventory you have prepared.CLICK HERE
Just send through your information via our copied list form.
These are good if you’re looking to be moving a while ahead in the future, and just want a ballpark of the total cost. All we need to know is what size house/apartment you live in, and from that we can advise roughly a total price for removing you anywhere in the country. Since we need such little information, they’re super fast to fill out!CLICK HERE
Do you provide a price-match or compare quote service of any kind?
Yes we definitely do, however we always suggest to read the fine print when comparing prices.(which we do for you when trying to beat a competitor)
For example, we always include GST in our prices, you might have been given a price that does not include it, and wonder why they are so much cheaper.
There are a few checkpoints you should run through when comparing quotes against each other.
1. Is the inventory identical? Maybe you missed something from a list.
2. Did you advise both removalists of lift/stairs long walk at collection or delivery?
3. Did you tell them how tight the corners near my house are? Maybe the price you were given was for a large truck that would never get into your street.
4. Do they offer the same type of insurance we do?
The last point is a hard one to fully check at a brief look, and usually involves you needing to speak to someone.
To sell insurance, you need to either be qualified to do so, or have an agent that is qualified finalize the policy for your customers.
Any removalist worth using will have what is called “Goods in Transit” insurance.
This covers your goods that in the event of something happening to the truck with your items inside, then your covered.
Basically, they have a crash and you’ll be covered.
This is what you must make sure that whatever removalist you use has. (We do)
Whilst its not nice to have to replace or repair the dining table because of a few scratches, imagine something happening and you not having a dining table, or any furniture for that matter.
We recommend that you purchase your own insurance independently, as that way you can ensure you’re covered for everything, rather than leaving it up to a companies insurance policy to protect you.
