5 Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring a Removalist

By Nextl3v3l | 10/08/2023

Moving should be an occasion filled with enthusiasm and excitement. To avoid turning this process into an ordeal, hiring the right removalists makes all the difference.

However, mistakes can come into play when you’ve got the wrong removalist team on your side. To remedy this, we’ve put together a list of 5 mistakes to avoid so you can hire the right removalist for your home or office move.


1. Failing to Extend Your Search

If you end up settling for the first removalist service that you come across, the likelihood of success becomes incredibly narrow. Thanks to the web, there is plenty of competition to assess.

Every professional team promotes their own service for domestic and commercial moves, whether that is close to home or across state borders. Here is where you gather the data on price, value, experience, resources and availability, something that becomes easier once you’re presented with more options.

At Next Level Removals, we offer comprehensive local removalist and interstate removalist services, ensuring that we will be up to measure for your next move.


2) Avoiding Recommendations & Reviews

When it comes to hiring local removalists, it is much easier to navigate if you take into account the feedback of the community at large. Reviews and personal recommendations from acquaintences, friends, and family can provide you with valuable insights into whether the removalist service you’re planning to hire is up to the task.

Do they rank well? Do they enjoy a high volume of referrals?

All these factors should be put into consideration prior to getting in touch with a removalist company. For these reasons, you should have a thorough read through of the reviews and ask people you know for any good recommendations.


3) Only Judging Service By Price

Your budget should be a key priority. Families are only able to connect with a moving company if they can afford the expense. However, it is important to look at more than just the price.

Cheaper is not always better and can end up being more costly in the long run. There are cases where contractors overlook their responsibilities and make mistakes without the right amount of investment. You need to strike the balance between affordability and a guaranteed level of professionalism for the task.

At Next Level Removals, all our prices vary on a case by case basis depending on your moving situation. Take a look at our furniture calculator to get a rough estimate of the cost of your move or speak to our team to receive a free and quick quote.


4) No Written Contract

What’s the best way to achieve peace of mind when hiring a removalist? Ensure you have access to a written contract. A common mistake that clients make is to overlook this part of the agreement. It may be related to service price, scheduling or protection of assets.

A simple promise or verbal agreement shouldn’t be relied on. Any guarantees need to be written in black and white copy, providing you with a legal safeguard without the burden of liability should anything go wrong.  When you hire us, we’ll provide you with a detailed contract, guaranteeing you’ll receive full transparency and honesty throughout the moving process.


5) Overlooking Industry Credentials

How do you know whether you can trust a removalist service?

You should make it a priority to check that they have a current operating licence and insurance backing. The right removalists for you will be happy to showcase their permits, insurance policies and certifications.

This is where you find tangible protection for any lost or damaged items.  Our team have all the correct and up-to-date credentials, ensuring your move will be a smooth, safe, and seamless process.


Make the Moving Process Simple and Get the Right Removalists On Your Side

Why take a risks hiring a provider you can’t trust? At Next Level Removals, you will avoid all of those common mistakes and enjoy a stress-free move. You can be sure that the relocation process will be easy, convenient, and secure, allowing you to relax and focus on what you’d rather be doing.
