How long will my move take?
A question we are asked every day! Unfortunately, there’s no one answer.
The time will vary depending on the volume you have, the access to both addresses, the distance between homes, how many removalists you have, and how well prepared you are.
How can I prepare my belongings for the move?
If anything can fit into a carton it should be boxed up, with no loose items.
Dismantle furniture that was not designed to be moved (e.g. garden sheds, children’s play equipment etc).
Your removalists can dismantle standard beds and reassemble them, but if you have them ready disassembled, the smoother and quicker the day will run.
Should you need moving boxes, our box shop has a wide range of packing supplies available.
How many removalists will I need?
This will depend on the size of your home, ease of access and volume of belongings that need to be moved.
2 removalists will be able to service a 3 bedroom or less home with standard volume, and good access.
4 bedrooms will require 3 men. For a 4 bedroom+, or high volume / difficult access move, we suggest 4 men.
For fixed rate removals, our assessor will let you know how many removalists to expect.
What areas do you cover
Our local specialists service the Western Sydney & Blue Mountains regions, including the Penrith, Blaxland & Springwood areas.
What if I have a lot of things?
We also offer customers that have longer or larger moves or those whose property has restricted access a free appraisal by one of our team.
Our representative will confirm the volume of the items to be moved, from which we’ll offer you a “locked-in” quote, so there are no nasty surprises in regards to how much it will cost.
Do I need insurance?
Our staff are trained removalists and have many years of removal experience. They take the utmost care of your belongings, however, accidents can happen, so we do recommend you take out insurance.
Are there any hidden or additional costs?
No, our rates are inclusive of all charges. We either charge you an hourly rate, or a confirmed locked-in price (both of which include GST.)
What can’t the removalist take?
We’re unable to transport any of the following items as they are considered to be dangerous goods, or unsafe to move.
- Matches & firelighters
- Gas bottles, fuel containers & aerosols
- Flammable liquids (e.g. petrol, motor & cooking oil, kerosene, methylated spirits, turpentine)
- Cleaning solvents & chemicals (e.g. pesticides, paint thinners, chlorine & swimming pool treatments etc)
Please note: We are unable to transport pets or other domesticated animals.
