  • Also get the quote in writing . If that be e-mail or written. Check the fine prints for any extra cost that can be added by the service that you are using.
  • You can also do both. Pack your smaller items in your car . Electrical goods. Personal Items. Packing Boxes that you can fit in your care. You can leave the larger items to the Removalist.
  • If using a Removalist . Make their job a lot easier. Make everything easy to access so it won’t take them too long to load up the truck or unload at the other end.

  • Unplug any electrical appliances and tape the cord to the items.
  • If moving yourself. Give your friends plenty of time and warning if you want them to give you a hand.
