Things you will need to consider when looking for a removalist are;

Do they have a comprehensive array of services?

The more comprehensive their service offering is, the more flexibility you have. The three main services any good removals company should have are; removals, a packing and unpacking service, and a storage offering. Having this range of services will allow you to removals service that will be specific to your needs.

Do they allow a customisable service?

Removals is not a one-size fits all. Everyone has a slightly different set of belongings to move and slightly different idea as to what things they will move themselves, and what things they want the removalists to move, pack and store. You’re going to need a removalist company that quotes on a case-by-case basis and will create a quote based on your specific needs.

Does the removalist take a consultative approach?

As much as you want the move to be customised exactly how you want, sometimes if pays to have a removalist who can also provide advice where needed. You want a removalist who is experienced and if needed, can advise you potentially cheaper and easier ways to do your move.

Are they local?

Having a local company provides an advantage. If they’re a local company, expect a lot of their jobs to also be local. The closer they are to base, and the closer they are to the removal before yours, the easier it is to maintain time expectations. If the job before yours is out at Baulkham Hills and it takes longer than expected, or there’s heavy traffic, then potentially you’ll be unpacking at midnight or waiting until the next day.


You need to make sure they offer insurance on your belongings. This may be included in your quote price, or might be an optional extra. Either way, make sure it’s available.

Most of all – they have to be able to project manage your move
