Frequently Asked Questions about Removalist Costs

How much do removalists cost?

Removalist costs refer to the expenses associated with hiring a professional moving company or removalist service to help you relocate your belongings from one place to another. These costs can include various services and fees.

What factors affect removalist costs?

Removalist costs can vary based on several factors, including the distance of the move, the volume and weight of your belongings, the level of service required (e.g., packing, unpacking, disassembly, reassembly), the time of year, and the specific removalist company you choose.

How do removalists typically charge for their services?

Removalists often charge based on either an hourly rate or a fixed fee for the entire move. Hourly rates are common for local moves, while long-distance or interstate moves typically have a fixed fee based on factors like the distance and the size of the move.

What's included in the removalist costs?

Removalist costs usually cover services like loading and unloading, transportation, packing materials (if requested), and basic liability coverage. Be sure to clarify with the removalist company what’s included in their quoted price.

Are there additional fees I should be aware of?

Yes, there can be additional fees for services like packing, unpacking, storage, moving specialty items (e.g., pianos, pool tables, antiques), or if there are unexpected obstacles at the pickup or delivery location (e.g., stairs, elevators, long carry distances).

How can I get an accurate removalist cost estimate?

To get an accurate estimate, it’s best to request an in-home or virtual survey from the removalist company. This allows them to assess your specific needs and provide a more precise quote.

Should I get multiple quotes from different removalist companies?

Yes, it’s a good idea to obtain quotes from multiple removalist companies to compare prices, services, and reviews. This can help you choose the one that best fits your needs and budget.

Can I save money on removalist costs?

You can potentially save money by decluttering and reducing the number of items you need to move, packing some or all of your belongings yourself, and scheduling your move during off-peak times when removalist companies may offer discounts.

Is insurance included in removalist costs?

Basic liability coverage is often included, but it may not fully cover the value of your belongings. It’s a good idea to discuss insurance options with the removalist company and consider purchasing additional coverage if needed.

Are there any cost-saving tips for hiring removalists?

  • Plan your move well in advance to avoid rush charges.
  • Be organised and ready for the movers when they arrive.
  • Disassemble and pack as much as you can yourself.
  • Use your own packing materials if possible.
  • Consider a mid-week or off-season move for potential cost savings.
