A 2012 report found that a full 31-percent of Australians would move interstate if it meant better wages and work/life balance.With that high percentage, it’s no surprise that the Australian removals industry is so robust. But, not all removalists are equal, and it’s important to consider your various options for your next move. If you need to hire a removalist, there are two types of services you can arrange. One is a more traditional (and more expensive) removals service. The second is an increasingly popular type of removals involving shipping container transport. They are vastly different from each other.
The third type of move which we won’t discuss here would be a complete D.I.Y. Keep in mind that while that gives you a lot of flexibility, hiring a moving truck can be expensive and there could be charges for a one-way interstate drop off.
Traditional Removals And Transport :
The more traditional type of removals typically involves engaging a full-service removalist who will pack your belongings and transport them to your destination. They are full-service with a full price tag to match. Some traditional removalists will allow you to do your own packing while they only provide the transportation for your things. This type of arrangement, however, can get tricky with insurance coverage and liability if items arrive broken. Be sure to understand the insurance policy and read the fine print. Also, it is critical to know how they determine the costs for your removals. Many removalists charge by the weight as well as labor.
Shipping Container Transport:
The second type of removals involves shipping container transport. At You Pack Removals, we are leaders in shipping container transport and removals. There is a reason it is a rapidly growing segment of the removals industry. It is typically far less expensive and allows the customer greater flexibility with their removals. Pricing tends to be straightforward, but it is always important that you understand the terms and charges with any removalist.
Container transport means a client will order and receive a shipping container at a predetermined location such as their home or office. The container is delivered straight to you. Most removalists offer various sizes of containers from which you can select what works best for your things.
When you use opt to use a shipping container transport removals, you pack your belongings yourself and load them yourself into the container. The removalist returns to pick up and move the container to another prearranged location. This method of removals allows you, the client, to have complete control over how and when you pack up your belongings.
It also means that you can save money by doing the packing yourself and loading your belongings into the shipping container yourself. Doing this part of the move cuts down significantly on labor costs! For those clients who either don’t want to or can’t pack or load their belongings themselves, engaging others to handle this part of the move is a viable option.
