7 Essential Tips for Working with Removalists

By Nextl3v3l | 12/01/2023

Moving can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, but working with the right removalists can make all the difference. Whether you are moving across town or the country, these professionals can help ensure that your belongings are safely and efficiently transported to their new home.

While your removalists are doing all the heavy lifting, there are still some things you can do to ensure your move goes smoothly. Here are seven essential tips for working with removalists:

1. Work with a reputable removalist company

As mentioned, working with the right removalists is the key to avoiding a stressful move. But when every provider claims to be the best, it can be hard to know who the best partner will be to help with your move.

Luckily, the internet has made it easy to compare providers and read reviews from multiple sources to learn about their reputation. Google Reviews is widely used and trusted, so you can typically gauge a businesses’ reputation based on that alone. Next Level Removals has an average Google Reviews score of 4.7/5 across over 1000 customers, so you know we’re the real deal.

2. Create an inventory of the items you’re taking

Create a comprehensive inventory of everything that needs to be moved. This will help you to keep track of your belongings and ensure that nothing gets lost or left behind.

Creating a detailed list of the items you want to take will also make it easier for the removalist to price your job. If you already have a general idea of what you’re taking, use our handy removals calculator to get a quick price estimate for your move.

3. Disassemble large furniture items

Where possible, disassemble large furniture items to make them easier and safer to move. While this requires a bit more effort, ensuring your items arrive at their new destination damage-free is worth it.

If you’re like most people and hate having to disassemble/assemble furniture, leave it to our team! We can take care of everything for you – just let us know what items you need help with when getting your quote.

4. Stay organised while packing

Be as organised as possible when packing. Use labelled boxes and packing materials to keep everything in its proper place. This will make it easier for the removalists to load and unload your items and help prevent damage.

At Next Level Removals, we offer packing services, affordable moving boxes, and FREE unlimited shrink wrapping to help you with your move.

5. Move the most precious items yourself

If you have any precious, irreplaceable, or highly sentimental items, you should transport them yourself for peace of mind. At Next Level Removals, our expert removalists know how to handle delicate items, but we respect your choice to transport them yourself if you choose.

6. Provide clear instructions

Make sure the removalists have clear instructions for where to place your items in your new home. This will help to ensure that everything is unpacked and set up efficiently.

7. Don’t hesitate to speak up

Don’t be afraid to speak up if you have any concerns or questions. Your removalists are there to help make your move as smooth as possible and will be willing to work with you to address any issues that may arise.

Overall, the key to a successful move with removalists is to plan ahead, stay organised, and communicate clearly. By following these tips, you can ensure that your move goes smoothly and that your belongings are handled with care.
