Get a Move On

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Danny and I am here to tell you to GET A MOVE ON. I'm not being rude. I am just trying to give you some great tips on how to move your stuff when you need to move house. I have moved house 8 times in the last 4 years, so when it comes to packing, moving and storing stuff, I know a thing or two. I was a complete novice when I started out but having hired some of the best moving and storage contractors in the country, I have learnt from the best. I hope you like my blog.

Furniture Removal Packages

Do you need removal services? Removalists will tailor their services to suit your needs and budget. The extract below discusses some of the removal packages that removalists offer. Hopefully, you will have an easy time choosing an appropriate removals package. 

Comprehensive Package

Most clients prefer this arrangement since the removalist handles every aspect of the move. Typically, they will visit your home to establish what you intend to move. On the removals day, the removalist and their team will pack and load your items. The professional will also clean your new home and organise your items according to your requirements. If you go for this package, the removalist will offer removal insurance coverage. It guarantees compensation if some of your items get damaged during the move.


Backloading is an arrangement where the client saves transport and packing costs. The removalist uses a truck on a return journey or one transporting another client's items. At your request, the removalist could send a team to assist with packing. If you opt for backloading, the removalist will ask you to be time-conscious since delays could severe the removalist's relationships with other clients. 


A self-move is ideal for budgeting customers who want absolute control over the removal process. Typically, you hire the removals van and equipment such as cartons, trolleys and furniture straps. You will pack your items and move them to your new premises. After the move, you will return the removals van and equipment. If you opt for this package, read the terms and conditions of the removalist. For example, check if you are allowed to use the removals van outside your town or state. 

Removal Containers

In this arrangement, the removalist sends a removal container to your home. A removal container is similar to conventional shipping containers. However, its interior is modified with straps and shelves and may include a climate control unit. Once you receive the unit, you will load your items, and the removalist will move the container to your new premises. This option is ideal for people who need temporary or permanent storage as they move. For example, perhaps your new home needs some repairs before you can settle in. In this case, you could opt to put some of your items in temporary storage as you await the completion of the repairs. 

Regardless of your preferred option, conduct due diligence to establish the expertise of your removalist. Check their experience, terms, reputation and pricing before signing the removal contract. Contact a household removalist service to learn more.
