Can removalists stop at multiple stops or locations?

March 30, 2022

Our removalists at Total Care Movers can make as many stops as you requireIt’s not uncommon and there are several reasons why a removalist might have to stop at multiple stops or locations. You may need to collect items from a relative or friends. Maybe you have items in storage that you want to pick up. Additionally, you might even be moving in with your partner for the first time. We can even stop to donate unwanted items such as furniture, clothes, or books. This can be done at an opportunity store or dispose of broken or unwanted items. The time it takes to pick up and deliver items at each relocation depends on factors such as:

Cubic Meterage

Our sales team appropriately arranges a suitable sized truck for your relocation. We will be basing this on a cubic meterage of your items. This will be done through a free, no obligation quote. We have various size vehicles and combinations that may be suitable for your move. These range from small to large trucks, all equipped with different features. These include, tail gates, ramps and trolleys, depending on your needs. Depending on the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and isolation factors, there are a number of ways to contact.

We can do this by coming out to your home of office, or via zoom or facetime. Your quote will be based on an hourly rate, from the time that the workers leave the depot. This is either based at Pooraka or Dry Creek, until they arrive back at the depot. This is calculated by the estimate time it will take to get back from the delivery by using Google Maps based on traffic delays etc. Rates may vary, depending on peak and off-peak periods.

The Kind of Access

Is there a bus stop out the front, loading or no parking areas? Is there maybe an incline or decline on your property? Heavy vehicles on pavers are not recommended, meaning the truck needs to park elsewhere to prevent damage. These are all things to consider. This is what it takes to pick up and deliver items due to the kind of access on your property.

The Amount of crew dedicated to the removalists job

Typically, two men will be dedicated for everyday relocations, however, you may require an additional crew member for larger jobs. Despite paying a more expensive hourly rate, an additional crew member will be assigned. Therefore, the job will be done quicker effectively saving you time and money.

Organisation and Preparation for removalists

 You can choose to pack your own items in preparation or have your belongings packed by our professional removalists. Essentially, anything that you can do to prepare and organise will prevent excessive time and money spent. This may include:

  • Sorting out what items you may no longer need prior to the move and decluttering your home or office
  • Arranging and stacking packed cartons in dedicated areas, ready for the removalists
  • Lessening the amount of food in your pantry and fridge or freezer in the weeks leading up to move day

The Weather

Despite the weather, our removalists at TCM will continue to work through the rain or heat unless you’re wanting to reschedule. In case of slight delays, prepare as things may take longer in extreme weather. There may be possible factors that will be put into place for the safety of both clients and our removalists. For example, surfaces or items may become slippery in the rain. Additional plastic wrap or other coverings for items may be required. An alternative route for moving items with trolleys, may need to be dedicated due to mud etc. Particular attention may need to be given to cherished or vulnerable items to ensure they’re well protected from mother nature. Our team will do our best to accommodate in extreme weather. Specifically, we will be prepared for the worst case scenario.

Dissembling or Assembling of Items

You can dissemble bigger items such as bed frames, cots, trampolines, swing sets etc, in preparation or have our removalists do it for you.  Furthermore, any artwork and photo frames can be removed from walls and placed together.

At Total Care Movers, we understand that each client and their relocation may require different needs. Whatever your requirements may be, trust that our staff at TCM will work around you in the most convenient way possible, for as many stops or locations you need to make along the way. Any help given from you or your family members prior to or on the day of the move will essentially save costs and make a quicker turn around at each of the locations for our removalists. Don’t hesitate to contact our staff who are dedicated to assist in relocating at multiple stops in a timely manner whilst meeting budget requests.
