Short Notice Removalists: What You Need to Know

You never know what life will bring you. There seem to always be unexpected events or appointments that pop up. One of those events may be an unexpected move that has to be done quickly. If this happens to you, the first thing you may do is panic. Before you panic and start making calls for removalists, there are a few other things you should do.

Consider a Full-Service Option

With a quick move, you want to make sure all your items are packed, moved and accounted for during the move. You can handle some of this on your own. If you do handle this on your own, you may end up forgetting something or overlooking an important step. When you use a full-service removalist company, you can ensure that everything is taken care of. They will pack your items, move them, unpack them and keep an accurate inventory of everything they move. Full-service options also include items such as packing materials and an inventory list. 

Declutter Your Items

Many people say when they move that they find items they had forgotten they own. The problem is you may take these items and simply store them away again, forgetting about them. Instead of going through that and moving items you don't need to, consider decluttering your items first. This will help reduce the amount of packages you need the removalists to handle. It will also clear away clutter before it even starts at the new residence. 

Consider Insurance

Many removalists will offer insurance on the move. This covers your items from packing to transport to unpacking. This means through the entire process, your items are insured against breakage, lost, or stolen items. This can give you peace of mind to ensure all your items either make it safely or are covered by the insurance plan so they can be replaced. If there are items you can not replace due to family value, consider moving those with you in your vehicle or asking for extra protection on the packaging of those items. 

Remember, there are many different types of removalists. Before you panic and begin to stress yourself, make sure you know what removalist options are best for you. Consider the points made here and make a checklist. Once you are ready, contact your area removalists. They will discuss what services you need and schedule a time to begin those services.
