Now, let’s understand all three in-depth

Choose the right Storage Units professional

There are many reputable providers around Perth.

#4 Points Checklist for storage units selection

  1. Check the reviews to select one.
  2. Location is very important. Choose one close to your pick up place or halfway from pick up and delivery as your removalists will charge you an hourly rate (if there is more drive it will be more costly).
  3. Check if they have insurance for the storage of your items. Ask about safety and security too (gate, fences, camera or security run)
  4. Ask about the access (code for the gate) and opening time. You and the moving company need to have access early morning and late afternoon if needed.

Choose the correct size of storage unit

It is primordial to choose the right size of a storage unit for your move to make it cheaper. The storage unit office can advise you, same for your removalist. Kroos Logistics will be happy to answer any of your questions regarding this.

  • The walking access to your unit has to be checked.
  • Sometimes you will pay less money for a storage unit second floor (access with lift) and a long walk but you have to think that the moving company will take more time to load and unload.
  • We prefer direct access to your storage unit (with less distance) as this is cheaper for you and easier for us.

Storage (Unit) Protection of your Items

  • Your moving company won’t provide any protection for your furniture. Regarding the loading in your storage unit, we will need some empty boxes, old bed-sheets, towels or any protection.
  • We use the empty boxes to put in between the furniture or on top to avoid scratches or damages.
  • You can find cheap 2nd hand boxes on Gumtree if needed OR you can also take a look into our quality packing boxes available in various size at affordable price.
  • You can buy some removal blanket protection in any hardware store too.

How To Choose A Right Removalist?

Hello everybody.

I am Eric, business owner of Kroos Logistics Removals in Perth. Our company is a Perth based and western Australian moving company. We are proud to offer a local move service around the Perth metro.

When it comes to choosing a good moving company, it’s important to check different information and parameters.

Removalist Perth Insurance Kroos Logistics

What Take In Consideration Before To Choose A Removalist?

  1. ⚠️ Cheap rate doesn’t mean cheap global service. If the people don’t know how to lift furniture, how to organise the pickup, how to load a truck, how to wrap and take care of furniture, it will surely cost you more money.
  2. ⚠️ In this industry, people who offer rate under $80 per hour are definitely not serious and reliable. You can’t hire a good removalist, have insurance, cover all your cost at a low rate like that. You will surely have issues and end up with more drama.
  3. ⚠️ The day of your move is primordial: the moving company has to show up, be on time and finish the job, the same day. Hiring non-professional removalist peoples can lead to issues, move not finished the same day and trouble with your real estate or extra cost for your budget.
  4. ⚠️ Insurance has to be subscribed by the moving company for your belongings or the eventual damage to the property. Otherwise, in case of an incident, this can cost you a fortune.

How To Make Sure I Choose The Right Moving Company?

  • 80% of the local company in Perth provide hourly rates. In this industry, it is very hard to forecast an exact and accurate time for a job as we are on demand and customer requests can change.
  • If the rate is too suspiciously low, it is important that you check reviews and online reputation of the company. You would be very surprised to see some dreadful feedback from customers.
  • Think about paying more to have the right skilled people. If you pay $10 more per hour for a 5 hours move, it might be $50 additional, but for a house, you will be moving in for years. And furthermore, your expensive couch or double door fridge won’t be damaged.
  • Check if there is depot to depot fees, minimum time, the way company invoice (invoice exact time spent?) and if insurance is included or not.
  • Insurance: Check if the provider got insurance. Ask for a contract policy.
  • Check Facebook or Instagram: it’s a good overview of the job performed by the company (photos or videos). On top of that, in 2019, a good well run business is active on those social media.

  • The house was a two story house with a tight staircase. As Eric said: “ the staircase was very tight indeed, but the most important is the items we have to move down. If it’s bulky, it can be challenging “
  • We inspect the house with Frank and Liz and did start the job.
  • Three items were bulky and tight and would definitely be hard to fit through the staircase :
  • Fridge: we decided to carry it with three guys, step by step.
    • All the staircase was cover with blankets

  • Antic wardrobe: This one was definitely too big and too heavy.
    • So Ralph and Simon decided to dismantle it and load it into the truck. Everything went well, the job ran smoothly.

Frank said 

I couldn’t be happier. Firstly there are very friendly chaps. Always positive. Then, I have to say I was impressed with their knowledge and skills. Those guys know what they are doing!
