The Problem with Choosing a Removals Company Online
Moving always presents challenges. Even when moving into a bigger and nicer house, the experience of moving can be stressful and challenging. It’s important to employ the right removals company so that they can take care of the most tricky and difficult jobs for you. But how do you choose the right one?
So many services you see available on Gumtree and elsewhere end up being unprofessional. No one wants to risk their goods, the furniture and items with a stranger who lacks respect for your property. Whether it be a move around the corner, or if you need interstate movers or even international movers, it is best to be dealing with professionals.
Do Your Homework
It will require some effort to find the right company. Instead of simply scrolling through names on Google, try visiting websites and reading the provided information, checking reviews, and make sure the company you’re choosing is trustworthy.
Obviously, word-of-mouth recommendations are suitable references. If you know of someone who has moved recently, then ask them about their experience. If someone you know has moved with a safe, trusted and professional company like Keys, then wouldn’t you want to know?
Go with an Accredited Company
Some house movers and removal companies are run on a shoe string budget out the back of someone’s house every other weekend. If you go with a company like that, you are unlikely to even get what you pay for.
The Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA) is Australia’s peak body in the professional relocation services, and membership with them is a sign that you can have confidence in high standards of service. AFRA membership guarantees strict adherence to consumer protection, quality compliance standards, and a commitment to an ethical code of practice. Be sure that the removal company that you choose is an AFRA member, like Keys, so that you can rest assured your belongings will be safe, respected, and insured on their move.
Trust in Customer Service
A good rule of thumb is to trust in your customer service experience. It’s amazing how many people will persist with bad companies long after their first, or twentieth, bad customer service experience. Moving your life, even just down the street, is not something that should be taken lightly by any company. A professional and committed company will reassure you with high standards of service, excellent communication, and quality processes.
