3 Services Offered by Removalists Companies That Make Moving House Easier


A removalist company typically drives a truck of household items from your old home to your new home, but they also may offer many other services as well. These services can make your move easier on you overall and even ensure the safety of the things you're moving. If you've never worked with a removalist company before, note a few of the services you may want to ask about for your next move.

1. Recycling and junk removal

Before you pack and move, why not take time to purge items from your home? You might want to toss out or recycle small kitchen appliances you no longer use, leftover materials you've been holding from old home renovation projects, and knickknacks you no longer want or display. In many case a removalist company can provide a bin you can use for junk removal or for recyclable items, and then haul these away for you.

Remember that if you don't purge items from your home, you need to pack them and move them, so ask the removalist company about arranging for disposal bins and recyclable bins well before your move.

2. Packing

A removalist company can actually help you pack your items before your move. This can not only save you time but it can protect your items since they'll be properly secured for the move. You have less chance of delicate dishes and other items breaking while being in the back of a truck when you have a professional pack them for you.

This service can also help you to simply store items after your move. If you're downsizing your home and want to store away artwork, expensive dishes, special clothes, family heirlooms and the like, the removalist company can pack them in sturdy containers that are meant for long-term storage. They can also be packed in such a way that they'll be protected from the risk of wrinkles, scrapes, chips, mould, and so on.

3. Cleaning

A removalist company can often arrange to have your new home or your old residence cleaned before and after your move. Having a new house cleaned can make it easier for when you take occupancy, as you simply need to unpack and don't need to worry about a moldy bathroom or a refrigerator with mildew.

Cleaning your old residence after you move can help to ensure you get your security deposit back, or may help you to sell a house that you need to keep on the real estate market after you vacate.

Storing my family heirlooms

After my parents passed away I inherited a lot of bulky furniture items that have been in my family for many generations. My current inner city flat is nowhere near big enough for it so I rented out a storage unit. Sometimes I head out to the storage lot just to look through it and remember them. Luckily the furniture has stayed in great condition and one day when I finally get a big family home, I'll be able to have it all on display. I spent a lot of time researching the best way to store vintage furniture long term, and it's all on my site. Enjoy!
