Moving can take you through a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s a mixture of excitement and fear, leaving behind what is familiar and looking forward to new adventures. Along with these emotions, you should also prepare yourself for the myriad of things that you should think of.
Removal Costs: Things to Consider
One of the most important facets of moving, is to consider the costs of doing so. Relocating can already put a dent on your budget. You would most certainly want to get the most value for your money when think of getting professional removal services.
Fortunately for you, we at Ashtons Removals think of your ease and convenience. Not only do we provide years of experience and expertise in local, interstate, and international removals, we also offer extra services that you might need during your move such as piano relocations, car transport, insurance, and storage. From the early days of your home or office transition, we can help you with packing and unpacking of boxes, and will place your furniture in the rooms where you want them.
Our removal service is carried out with top-notch quality care, thoughtful service, and the most competitive pricing you will come across on the Gold Coast. To provide you with a better picture, click to request a quote for your removal and storage costs.
Following are some key factors that affect your removal costs that you should know about, to better plan and execute your move:
1. Special Services
First, determine what kind of services you would need. Will you need partial or full packing and unpacking? Do you have special equipment or items, such as a piano, that you want us to move for you? Would you like us to assist you with your vehicle transport? How about insurance during the move?
These are questions that you would want to ask yourself so you will be able to determine which services you would most need help with. It will also help your removalist give you a more accurate quote.
At Ashtons Removals, we would be happy to conduct an obligation-free inspection so we can help you assess removal factors, as well as provide you with a comprehensive quotation based on your needs.
2. Labour Hours, Distance, and Accessibility
As the first removalist on the Gold Coast with more than 65 years of experience, we can guarantee you an efficient removal. However, you must also bear in mind that the amount of time for the removal to take place will also depend on the number of things you need to be relocated. Charges will be computed on the number of hours it will take to safely and efficiently conduct the removal process.
At the same time, accessibility from your current house, to the one you are moving into will be taken into consideration. We will need to know how accessible the properties are so we can properly determine which removal vehicle/s to use, how many people are needed, and if extra time is required to complete the move.
The distance will also be a determinant on the price, as we will need to factor in fuel costs, for example. There are different charges for local, interstate, or international removals.
As mentioned above, the number of items you have will be used to determine the amount of time required and therefore the costs involved in the removal process.
To help you cut down on costs and free up significant space in your new space, we recommend that you conduct a thorough assessment of your belongings. Go through each room in your house and see if there are items that you want to keep, donate, or throw out.
Doing so will help reduce the number of items you need to pack and bring with you to your new place. You can also have a garage sale and earn money from your pre-loved items.
It will also give you an idea on what packing materials you’ll need. For your convenience, we at Ashtons Removals have several cartons, wraps and covers, and other packing supplies that you can choose from depending on the kind of items you need to pack.
Should you decide to hold on to some of your items but cannot think of a place where to keep them, Ashtons Removals have an exceptional and cost-effective modular storage facility which can give you the space you need, while ensuring that your valuables and personal effects are kept safe and secure.
Your furniture or items stay wrapped and securely stored until the time that you need them delivered. Your possessions will be stored in our special storage modules, which are packed securely for transit at your home and forklifted into our storage warehouse, reducing double handling and damage risk.
Insurance costs should also be considered during your relocation. As a responsible removalist, we are able to provide you with insurance on your belongings during the move to safeguard you from unforeseen incidents.
Our office staff are all authorised to be able to provide you with information regarding insurance in transit and in store and will be able to give you a Financial Services Guide, Policy Wording and Product Disclosure Statement. A personalised insurance certificate will also be given to you prior to your move.
