What’s included in removalist quotes?

When booking a removalist, you might want to know what a removal quote will contain. While the layout and contents of a quote will differ based on the removalist, there are some elements you can always expect and should always investigate. 🔍

Removalist price

Honestly, we’d be surprised if the price wasn’t the first thing you looked at! However, before you choose the cheapest moving house quote, you should check out how to compare removalists or the factors that affect removal quote prices.

One thing to know with removalist quotes is that they will usually be an estimate. A removalist is only inclined to give more accurate removal quotes after conducting a moving survey.

An outline of the service

As part of the house removal quote, the company will outline the expected number of staff and trucks along with the services that are included or that you can opt for. Be sure to read this section and ask any and all questions, especially if there’s a service you want or you feel the team for your move is the wrong size.

Moving date

In all removal quotes, the moving date will be specified. It’d be wise to double-check just in case there was a little mistake with the date. The last thing you want is no removalist on moving day!

Insurance

Since furniture in transit isn’t covered by content insurance, you’ll want to make sure that the removalist offers an insurance policy that covers the value of your goods. Otherwise, you may want to want to secure a new policy for the move.

Terms and Conditions

As with any form of service, removalist quotes come with terms and conditions. While they’re unlikely to prove an interesting read, it’s better not to skimp on any detail. You don’t want to be hit with some obscure clause!

When to book a removalist?

If you book a removalist too late, you’ll be rushing to plan your move or might even struggle to find a mover! We recommend that you start the process to find a mover at least 1-2 months in advance of your move right before the time you start to pack for moving house. It’ll also help avoid making a last-minute decision, you’ll need time to properly compare removalists!

Removalist Quotes: What influences the cost?

As the removal price quotes will likely be a big part of finding the right mover, we just wanted to highlight some of the main factors that affect moving costs.

Distance

The further your belongings need to travel, the great the cost, which likely comes as no surprise. However, there are some things that you might not expect. For instance, national moves may be charged per hour or per mile and international moves will be affected by port of departure and arrival.

Size

Both the volume and weight of your move contribute to the price. Not sure how much stuff you have? Don’t fret! Sirelo has a handy furniture volume calculator to get you on your way. This is even more pertinent when shipping a container overseas.

Complexity

The cost of removal will be affected by the difficulty and whether special equipment is needed. Fine art, a piano, and antiques are delicate and difficult to move. Extra help might be required, and it’ll only add to the cost.

Additional costs

Depending on the removalist company you choose, there may be surpluses for things like parking permits and elevator fees. Furthermore, if you elect to avail of additional services such as packing, storage, cleaning or one of the many other services, you can expect that to raise the costs.

Comparing Removalist Quotes

 

If you’ve gone ahead and requested removalist quotes with Sirelo, unfortunately, you have the difficult task of choosing a removalist to help you. When it comes to comparing removalist quotes, we have some points that you ought to consider when making your choice!

Price

While we might win the Captain Obvious Award for mentioning that you should consider price, there are a few additional cost considerations you’ll want to take into account.

Firstly, it’s wise to come in with an expectation of how much your removal will cost. Fortunately, Sirelo has some pages that will certainly be useful for understanding how much your move might cost. Check out the following pages:

Secondly, removalists can range in quality and price. Like all things budget, there will be hidden prices but that doesn’t mean you should overpay either! These costs usually come with the services offered, which may be included or in addition.

Services offered

As we just mentioned, it’s not all about the upfront cost. When choosing what removalist quote to go for, also consider whether the price includes some or all of the following:

  • Moving boxes: If scouting out moving boxes doesn’t sound like a fun activity, you can buy or rent them from your removalist. Most companies will offer boxes, and it can just be very convenient.
  • Packing services: Some movers leave this out of the removalist quote as they assume you would prefer to do this yourself. Now we don’t doubt that you’re strong but do think carefully about the extra effort that this will entail. Check out our packing guide if you do decide to go the DIY route!
  • Disassembly and reassembly services: Expertise and specific equipment are often required for this. Companies usually offer these services for an extra fee, but this might be left out of the initial removalist quote if it’s not communicated to them from the outset.
  • Specialty moves: This includes items such as pianos, and even pets. Make sure you indicate to the removal company that this is a service you need so that they can arrange a visit and assess for themselves what exactly needs transporting.
  • Storage: Is there a gap between when you move out of your current house and into your new home? Removalists often offer storage for your goods in the interim.
  • Moving insurance: Look carefully at the terms and conditions of the company’s moving insurance to work out the amount and type of objects insured. Also, what precautions are in place in the event of a lost or damaged item.
  • Cleaning: Nobody wants to move into a dirty home, and you might not have the time to give your only house a thorough cleaning. Fortunately, some removalists will offer this service.

Company reviews

Always read reviews! There’s no excuse for skipping over customer reviews when comparing removalist quotes. Reviews offer a great insight into the inner workings of a company. You’ll learn about any potential issues.

As Sirelo provides a 100% transparent review system, all removalists have a profile which contains all submitted customer reviews. There’s also some general information about the company. Exploring these removal company pages is a great way to determine which removalist quote to go for.

Quality and certification

There are certain moving networks such as Moving Select, which removalists can join but are not obligated to. However, being a part of such networks can be an indication of credibility as members of these networks are held to certain industry standards. It acts as an extra guarantee of quality.
