Everything You Need To Know About Removalists

If you are moving for the first time in your life, and you have too many items to transport on your own, you will likely have to hire a removalist such as Ocean Grove Removals. Removalist is a term for a professional mover who comes into your home or office and carries your furniture into a van or truck for transportation to a new location. But removalists are full-service professionals who do more than just transport your goods. To help increase your knowledge about them, here's everything you need to know about these movers.

They Offer Packing Services -- If you don't have the time to pack your items before a move, or you just aren't up to the labour required to box your items, a removalist offers full packing or half packing services for your convenience. With full packing, a removalist will do the entire packing of your home or office, including wrapping and padding fragile items, and establishing a list of everything contained in each box. Half packing service is available if you only want the removalist to pack your fragile items, such as glass shelves, antiques and breakable items that you're not sure how to best protect during the move. Half packing is ideal if you have a lot of valuable items that need maximum protection in a move.

They Offer Unpacking Services -- In addition to packing services, a removalist can also provide you with unpacking services. Similar to packing services, unpacking services can be full or half, in which a removalist will either unpack all your items at the new location and place them where you want, or unpack only your fragile items and place them in selected locations.

They Offer Long-Term Storage -- Many removalist companies also offer you the option of diverting some or all of your items into a long-term storage facility. You can either have the removalist take your items to a storage location of your choosing, or avail yourself of a storage company that has a contract with the removalist, which can save you money as you can often get a package deal in these instances.

They Offer Cleaning Services -- If you are moving out of an apartment, condo, office or house in which new tenants are arriving soon, many removalists offer cleaning services. Removalists will clean your entire premises, including kitchens, bathrooms, carpets, wood floors and windows. They can also clean the place where you are moving, so that you don't have to worry about a 'touch up' before unpacking. Cleaning services may be especially important if a rental deposit is dependent on the cleanliness of the place you are leaving.
