 Questions to ask

We always feel that customers need to be assured that they are hiring the right professionals for the job. This is why, our experts have put together a list of important questions you should be asking a residential removalist before hiring them:

  1. How will you move our belongings?

The answer to this question will help you understand, the type of a vehicle that will be used for transportation. They will also tell you what type of tools & equipment they will be using in the work and how they will secure all the items in the moving truck.

  1. Do you deploy permanent employees or do you hire contractors?

Permanent employees will be more reliable than contracted ones, as they are more concerned about maintaining the reputation of the companies that they work for. Contractual workers can be quite lackadaisical and careless when it comes to handling your precious belongings. It’s a good idea to hire the moving company that deploys permanent employees in their moving projects.

  1. What is your level of experience?

When you first call a residential removalist company, you need to ask them how long they have been operating in the industry. This will give you a clear idea about whether they have the experience to handle your move well. You can also ask them to provide you with references of previous clients; call some of their customers to get a better understanding of their level of services.

  1. What type of packing materials do you use?

Regardless of whether you are moving to another suburb or across state lines, all your belongings and furniture will be hauled into a moving truck. They will be jostled during the transportation process making it very important to ensure that everything is wrapped and packed properly. Check with the company about what kind of materials they use. Ideally, the company should use commercial grade bubble wrap, moving boxes, shrink wrap as well as wrapping blankets, packing peanuts and more. Most companies provide a variety of moving boxes based on the items that need to be transported.

Aside from all these questions, you should also be asking the company about what kind of licensing and insurance they have. For more information, feel free to call MLB Removals at 03 8609 6033.
