Why you should request a quote when moving house

TMAAT May 12, 2014

Moving house is always a big job, and our customers often discover they have more belongings than they thought they had.

This is why Two Men And A Truck offers a quote estimating service, to help assess the most suitable resources and manpower for your move.

Two Men And A Truck’s chief estimator Sean Mayock recommends requesting an estimate for any place larger than a one-bedroom apartment, to help ensure a smooth move and avoid any unexpected costs.

“I’m going to be seeing exactly what’s involved and what needs doing in your house, whether there’s dismantling and assembling involved or any specialised items to move, like a piano or a heavy double-door fridge,” he says.

“These will all be listed in the quotation so as a client you can feel comfortable because they are listed and included.”

Some removalists may turn up on the day and charge extra at a higher rate because some items or access to the property were not noted beforehand.

Sean says booking a quote eradicates that problem a quote includes evaluating all aspects of the move including access to the property.

“You’re not going to be charged extra because it’s my job to estimate how long the job will take,” he says.

However, there are some important points to look for in a quote.

Clear indication of price

Details of access to the properties moving from and moving to

ABN, company contact details and whether the company is an AFRA (Australian Furniture Removals Association) accredited member.

AFRA members are governed and have to adhere to strict guidelines regarding equipment, vehicles, premises and staff training to ensure high quality removal service. AFRA members can also offer insurance to its customers.

Sean highly recommends comprehensive cover for any move, because it protects the customer for additional circumstances when the removalist is not considered negligent.

“It gives you total flexibility and security in your mind that all your goods have been insured though our company from the time we pick up the first item until we put down the last item in your house,” Sean says.

Two Men And A Truck offers three types of quotes, to suit the needs of individual clients of businesses.
