Sydney Removals – How to Spend Less When Moving Out

Written on 07/10/2013

While it will not cost you a fortune, moving with the help of Sydney removals will indeed cost you some money. That is, if you don’t know how to plan your relocation well. However, not all hope is gone. You can still afford relocating with the help if furniture movers if you practice some of the tips that will be discussed in this article.

Be sure to clarify penalties, additional charges, and other “fine print” fees with Sydney removalists. Do this especially if you are availing of their service through a promotion. Fine print means those fees that may be imposed on you without your knowledge. These are fees that are omitted in discussions and are usually literally printed fine or small in contracts. One of the most common additional charge tenants don’t know is the “back to base” fee. It’s basically a fee where you need to pay some extra as the vehicle used in the relocation needs to go back to its point of origin. This fee is usually waived for shorter relocations though.

You also spend less if you inquire about promotions. For example, some Sydney removals offer an unlimited number of packaging boxes. This means you no longer have to buy boxes to hold your items during the relocation. You also won’t pay extra in case you exceed the number of allotted boxes for your items.

Sydney removalists may also opt to offer your “flat rates.” This means the rate is the same for all types of services they render. For example, some flat rates mean the price for lifting your furniture and dismantling them may be the same. In this case, go for half-hour flat rates. You save more money when you’re billed based on half-hour increments, instead of hourly additions.

To save money in your relocation, you also need to know what company will offer you the best service for the least amount of payment. Therefore, it is advisable that you get estimates from not just one Sydney removals company. Contact at least three and ask them to give you a quotation. Then, decide which one can give you the best value for your dollar. It’s a bit arduous to contact a few companies instead of one but if you’re trying to save some money, it’s one good practice you should do.
