There’s little doubt that moving can be a stressful and time-consuming process. For many people, moving house can be one of the most stressful things that they ever do. The excitement of moving into a new home is often outweighed by the headache that comes with packing up all your belongings and unpacking them at the other end. This is where premium removalists can really help.

Premium removalists can make the entire process of moving home so much easier and quicker. So, what exactly do they do?

What are premium removalists?

Premium removalists are professionals who specialise in moving. They usually offer a higher level of service than most base-level moving companies. They’re often able to look after everything when it comes to packing up your home, transportation of your belongings and even unpacking at the other end.

Premium removalist costs

So, how much can you expect to pay for this type of service. Like just about every service, the cost of premium removalists will depend on your requirements. Factors like where you’re moving to and how many things you have to move will impact upon the price you are charged. Most premium removalist will charge by the number of boxes you have or the amount of stuff they will need to move, although some will charge you by the hour. The cost of moving could be as little as a few hundred dollars or range up to several thousand. Depending on the services you need, quotes will usually range from about $75 and hour all the way through to around $300. This may or may not be inclusive of insurances and might not include packing materials.  With some premium removalists there will be an option to add on more comprehensive insurance so that you are covered in the event that something goes wrong or your furniture becomes damaged.

If you’re trying to guess at the likely cost of your move, you’ll find that many premium removalists offer tips on calculating the cost and can provide you with a quote. They also often offer up ball-park figures for different sized dwellings.

Getting insurance

Most premium removalists have good insurance in place, but since they’ll be dealing with all of your most treasured worldly possessions, it’s best to check. Ensure that you look into their reputation and check references before you hire them to ensure that you’re going to get good service for the money that you will be paying them. Before you book your moving team, you should also make sure that you check on what the quote includes. Will they pack and unpack everything for you? Is the transport of your pet covered?

What can they do for you?

Most moving companies offer a very high level of service. This can include services such as providing you with packing materials, transporting your belongings from A to B, and unpacking and packing your belongings. Some even offer cleaning and storage in case you have extra items or time between when you leave your old home and get into your new one. Having a cleaning service add-on is great as it kills two birds with one stone and means you don’t have to spend forever trying to get your old home looking sparkling clean.

A lot of them will also provide transit insurance to ensure that you are covered in the event that something falls off the back of a truck or becomes damaged whilst travelling. They may also offer other services like throwing away or recycling your items to save you time during your move.
