A furniture removalist named Boyce came in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. He fled away with customer money and never gave appropriate services to his consumers. But now, the court has convicted him of the numerous fraud cases, and he has been penalised some $107,000 for conning his customers. His is one example, which is an eye-opener for Australians who are looking for good removalist services in their area for relocation. You must check with your furniture removalists in Sydney as to whether they are using all the right materials and methods in the process so that you never have to compromise on the quality of service or your priced possession or time.
Proper packaging is a must
The job of a furniture removalist is not just to stack furniture and belongings into the vehicle and transfer those. There is much more to it, and involves deeper responsibilities. There are some protocols, which need to be followed during packaging and transfer. These are as follows:
– A professional should be carrying high quality bubble wrap to wind around all important and delicate furniture and electrical items as this will prevent any breakage, wreckage, and scratches, etc.
– The more delicate items must be covered with blankets over the bubble wraps to ensure even more security and protection. This is how the job is to be done, which many professionals do not do while they take full charges for the job.
To make sure that this does not happen with you, a thorough research on the furniture removalists in Sydney should be done. Talking to someone who has had relocation recently would be beneficial too.
If your removalist is insured, then your goods are safe with them. Hence, you must check that the furniture removalists in Sydney you choose have a valid working insurance to cover any damage brought about to your goods accidentally.
If by chance your removalist is not insured, you would not get back any money from the damages caused if any, unless you sue the removalist company.
The harassment and need for support
Relocation is a serious issue, and it’s kind of a mental harassment too as you leave an old and settled space and move on towards uncertainty. That’s because as you will not know how safe, secure, nice or comfy the new place will be! In case you are happy, then also the excitement of relocation is too overwhelming to make you check everything carefully. In both the cases, either the tension or the excitement can keep you quite engaged with so many things that you will not be able to check with the workings of the removalists. So, it is better that you talk to other customers, and go through their feedback before you choose your service provider.
If it’s just a few items in a small house or office, and seems pretty manageable by you, then you may skip calling the professionals. You will be able to handle the packing and transfers with the help of a few friends, etc. For heavier transfers leave it to the professionals, but you should do your careful research before selecting the service provider.
