Below, we will tell you a bit more about the service that we provide, including information on the basics of moving home and the different factors that can impact the price of a move. We will also provide you with some useful advice on moving home in general so that you can find the experience as easy and as stress free as possible. 

We always provide you with a free quotation

One thing you should know about our service is that we pride ourselves on being honest and upfront. We will always provide you with a free quotation. You are under no obligation to continue with our service once this has been provided. This should give you a good understanding of how much it is going to cost for you to move office or home. We will explain all of the costs that are entailed so that you have a detailed breakdown of what you are paying for. 

How much is it going to cost you to move home?

Of course, one of the main things that you are going to want to know is how much it is going to cost you to move home. It is understandable that this is going to be a concern for you. After all, we don’t all have endless pits of money, and moving home in general is very expensive. Aside from the removal fees, you are also going to have different expenses in the form of solicitor costs and mortgage lenders, for example. This is why buying a new property is such a huge investment. Because of this, we always bring as much value as possible to our customers. We have worked as hard as possible to bring you some of the most competitive quotes in the industry.

However, without knowing the ins and outs of your circumstances and the move itself, it is impossible to provide you with a 100 per cent accurate quotation. This is because there are many different factors that are going to dictate cost. We are going to explain this in further detail so that you can understand why you may receive a different quote compared to someone else you know.

For those who are moving on a local basis, the average price can differ depending on the town or city you are currently based in. You can sometimes expect to pay more money if you are moving to and from a larger city. This is because these cities can be difficult to navigate and congested, and so the move can take a longer amount of time. Plus, access can be a problem in big cities, which can also require more effort, as sometimes specialist equipment is needed. Of course, this is not always the case, which is why your individual circumstances are considered and you are given an accurate quote based on this. 

Long distance moves are whereby the quotes can really differ from person-to-person. Of course, there are going to be higher transportation costs if you are moving far away. Naturally, you can expect the distance of the journey to have an impact on the cost. If you are going to be moving to the other side of Australia, you can expect to pay more than someone who is simply moving to the nearest town. However, there are different factors that influence cost aside from distance, which can give you the opportunity to make some savings too. 

For example, the type of home you have will impact the cost. Bungalows can be cheaper because it means that there are no access problems in terms of moving things from a height. Other factors to consider include whether there are any parking restrictions or parking meter considerations, as well as whether you would like us to pack your items or this is something you are going to handle yourself. Additional services that can add to the overall charge also include having your items disassembled and reassembled, as well as storage services. The time of year and week that you decide to move can also have an impact. For example, if you choose to organise your move for a public holiday, this is typically going to cost a greater amount of money. These periods are busier and the roads tend to be busier too. 

Another factor that can impact the cost of your move is whether or not you have any specialist items that are going to need to be moved to your new location. This could be items that are very fragile, for example, which means they can only be handled by someone with a certain degree of experience. They may also require additional packaging and so this can add to the cost. 

Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of the different costs that are entailed when it comes to moving home. This should help you to understand why you have been given the quote that you have been given. Of course, this is something that we will only be too happy to go through with you so that you can understand your estimate properly.

Moving your piano to a new home

As mentioned, one of the expenses that can arise is when you are needing something specialist moved. A piano is a perfect example of this. A piano removal service for your upright piano is just as important as professional removals are for your grand piano. While the shape and size of an upright piano make it easier to move, it can still be damaged if handled incorrectly. 

The first thing you would expect specialists in piano removals to do is to ask questions about where the piano is kept, particularly on what floor, and what access there is to the property. The easiest way for a removals company to achieve this is to come out and see the property for themselves. The movers will need to know about the space outside of the property, including parking space and the flooring materials. This is necessary, as uneven flooring, such as gravel, will need to be covered with wooden sheeting before the piano can be moved along it. 

When the movers arrive to undertake the removal, your experienced removals team should first cover the piano with a padded cover to minimise the risk of damage to the exterior. The padding will also stop straps that may be used from scratching the paint or varnish. This is something we always do. For simpler ground floor removals your upright piano will be placed on a small trolley and wheeled out to the waiting vehicle. If there are small steps at any point, ramps are likely to be used to minimise the risks associated with lifting pianos for sale or on route to your new home. For more complex moves involving higher floors and stairs, cranes or pulley systems may be used. 

What are the basics of a successful move?

Now that you have a better understanding regarding the sort of costs that are going to be entailed, it is important to take a look at the move itself. We make a huge effort to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible and we are going to reveal exactly how we are able to do this. 

There is no denying that there are so many different elements of a successful move. Firstly, you are going to need to make sure that you have the correct insurance in place. After all, what would happen if there was a crash en-route and all of your items were destroyed? This would be devastating. This highlights why it is imperative to choose a reputable company to handle your removal for you so that you know that everything is above board and that they are going to have the required insurance in place. This is something that you can be certain of with us. 

In addition to this, you need to think about the different services that you need from the removal company. Do you simply want them to turn up, put your boxes in the van, and then drop them off at your new location? Or, perhaps you would like them to take care of everything for you, including packaging? This is something that can easily be arranged, and it is something that more and more companies and individuals are taking advantage of today because they do not want the hassle and worry of doing everything themselves. And, who can blame them? It is a big undertaking! 

Advice for those moving to a new home

We always try to provide our customers with as much help as possible. Here are some snippets of advice that you may find useful if you’re moving home…

Do you need a property conveyancer?

A property conveyancer is a professional legal professional with extensive familiarity with legislation and property. Only solicitors or licensed conveyancing experts are officially permitted to manage the process of buying a property and the related transaction. It is extremely hard to complete the sale of a house without the skills and expertise of a legal professional and therefore it’s important you select a business who are going to make the process as simple as possible. As the legal procedure begins a tremendous amount of documentation will be created and standard conveyancing fees may apply. Some of this paperwork will be complex and technical in nature, composed of agreements, terms and conditions, particularly if there’s a mortgage involved. It is your conveyancing solicitor’s role to review this paperwork, find any problems and provide clear and succinct information to you as a purchaser. This is much more significant with leasehold properties where there may be rigorous terms and conditions imposed on the leaseholder.

The process becomes a little more complicated should you be in a chain. This is because the legal side of things is going to involve a purchase and a sale as well. With this, a number of different transactions are incorporated, and so it is vital that you select a solicitor with experience and a lot of knowledge when it comes to this type of conveyancing process. Solicitors need to have the ability to examine and translate draft agreements, terms and conditions and the lawfully binding agreement. Their role also includes the acquisition of the important house searches including water, drainage, environment and sometimes chancel along with a comprehensive inventory. Within your conveyancing quote, consistently enquire whether such things as searches are a part of the price or whether they will generate additional costs. Always seek out a firm who are entirely clear and upfront about what they charge and what the overall conveyancing fees include. When picking a property conveyancer, it truly is vital that you ascertain whether they’re customer centred and communicate often with you and the relevant parties. You’ll find nothing worse than waiting around for days or even months at a time, making endless telephone calls to get an update on progress. 

Buying furniture for your new home – get some great deals online

Buying furniture online is an option that more people are choosing these days, as it can be a lot cheaper. Furniture is delivered to your doorstep without any inconvenience. However, one of the major pitfalls of purchasing online is that you cannot inspect the quality beforehand. How do you counter this when buying your office furniture over the internet?

One of the most reliable sources of information for online purchasers is customer reviews. Check that there is a wide array of testimonials from authentic buyers with diverse, unbiased views. This will give you clues as to the quality, durability and functionality of the furniture. Another way of guaranteeing quality when you buy furniture online is by buying the products from recognised manufacturers. Manufacturers with a reputable brand work to ensure that their products are of great quality to protect their good name. Once you have settled on a particular manufacturer or specific furniture, it is also advisable to review different websites selling the same product so as to get the best price for the furniture. However, even with the best research and due diligence, you cannot be 100% certain that you will get the best quality when you purchase furniture online. It is therefore important to review the store’s returns policy before ordering. Most manufacturers offer a return policy of 15 to 30 days. This guarantees you can always ship back the furniture and get alternative items or a refund if you are not satisfied with the product that you have purchased. It’s also advisable to review the other terms of service provided by the online vendor and look out for offers such as free shipping and promotional codes. 

There are so many advantages that you get when you buy office furniture online. Furthermore, a little research will usually uncover discounts and comparing prices from different websites ensures you get the best price. Always buy from a recognised and authentic website to ensure the safety of your payment and guarantee of delivery.
