Moving interstate is more complicated, and a lot more time-consuming than a simple local move. A lot more planning and energy goes into this process, making it important for you to choose a strategy that best suits your needs. When you hire removalists, you are taking the first step in ensuring your moving process is a stress-free and uncomplicated one. There are many factors to keep in mind if you are planning your move interstate, and below are some ways we can make this move easier on you.
Unless you are in possession of the correct vehicle and tools to get the job done correctly, it is simply not practical to attempt moving bulky items on your own. Bulky items include things such as fridges, freezers, washing machines, beds and couches; basically items that may be difficult to lift and do not typically fit in a car. Here at Total Care Movers, we have expert knowledge and experience with packing these items in our trucks safely and efficiently. Some of our trucks and utes even have adapters available to keep freezers plugged in on the drive.
The fact that we have years of experience here at Total Care Movers, means that we have perfected each of our services, and optimised our processes to be the most efficient they can be.
Moving requires a lot of heavy lifting, and this can often result in injury if not done properly. If you are worried about hurting yourself, or are unaware of the correct and safe way to lift heavy objects, we strongly recommend you hire a removalist Adelaide to do this for you. Our years of experience means that we are highly trained in safely moving any furniture or heavy items. Why should you put your health at risk, when professionals can easily take this burden off your hands.
If you are unable to pack or would simply prefer to have professionals do it for you, let your Total Care Movers removalist Adelaide know and they can give you a quote for their packing services. When you decide to leave the packing to us, we supply all the necessary materials and tools to get the job done right. This includes cartons, tape, paper, furniture blankets and any specialty items required. When we do your packing, we have a system to ensure your possessions are conveniently and efficiently packed, which will help easily keep track of where everything is.
Travelling interstate adds extra risks due to your items spending more time in the truck. We understand these risks, and therefore to minimise the possibility of damage by providing high quality materials to keep your items safe.
It is important to enquire about insurance when planning your move. Everyone has some expensive or sentimental items that they are particularly fond of, and having them break or become damaged can be gut-wrenching. If you are in possession of any of these items, it is important to let your removalist Adelaide know, and they can inform you of what they can offer you to ensure you have the peace of mind in knowing your valuables will be kept safe, or insured. There are some circumstances that cannot always be controlled- resulting in the possibility of damage- and in these unfortunate situations, insurance can help rectify the situation.
An interstate move requires a lot of time to prepare and organise everything to ensure it all goes to plan on moving day. At Total Care Movers, we will take care of this planning for you and make sure it has all been planned efficiently before the move. We strongly recommend contacting us at least 2 weeks prior to your move for us to get everything organised. However, if you are planning a move in our peak season (December-January), you should allow at least 4-6 weeks for us to organise the move. The sooner you allow us to get involved in your move, the better.
It is never too early to plan for your interstate move. It is important to decide on your budget early on in the moving process, which will prove helpful when you begin asking around for quotes. We recommend a little bit of flexibility with your budget, just in case there happens to be any additional costs such as unexpected additional items or if packing materials are required. Another factor that may add some costs to your total is if your time frames regarding settlement and accommodation change. If you are worried about being surprised about additional costs, one of our friendly sales consultants at Total Care Movers can come complete an in-house survey to determine what you will require for the move.
