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.

Why not to choose the cheapest removalist provider?

Today, we would like to talk about: Why not to choose the cheapest removalist provider?

We want to help you during your move process by giving you some tips on your household removals.

Indeed, when it comes to choosing removalist, we understand that it’s very tempting to take the lower price and cheapest removalist.

Beware!

Everything has a cost and nobody is working for free. You MUST be suspicious if you see any low cheap prices.

Below are the reasons why:

(1) Unreliability 

  • Every day we got emergency call from people that are looking for removalist due to a no show.
  • Many customers booked a company and they don’t show up. So you might end up to find another company, the same day, at high rate due to emergency.
  • Sometime show up with different moving trucks from your removals needs. You can check our blog on selecting right rental removals truck options to avoid this scenario.
  • If you can’t find a company, you might pay some penalties to the real estate, or even worse if new tenants have to move in the day after.
  • Ask the moving company or check the photos or reviews online.

(2) Professional Work Experience and Behavioural Training 

  • To perform removalist task and duties, you will need experienced and trained employees. 
  • If workers are not trained or don’t know their jobs, the mine will be done slowly, and you might get some damages on your property or any of your items.
  • This could simply cost you a fortune and a lot of hassle 
  • Ask the company about their crew experience or training processes.
  • Ask the moving company or check the photos or reviews online 
  • At Kroos Logistics, we have strong moral and value and our peoples are selected rigorously.
  • You can find on our website in our values section, what we expect from our employees.

(3) Damages

  • Many customers complaint about damages on their furniture or properties during furniture removal process.
  • Indeed, as stated above, it is primordial to have trained and skilled crew.
  • On top of that, you have to make sure that the moving company has all the required tools and protection to perform your move.
  • Blankets ( or pads ) are the most important.
  • Ask the moving company or check the photos or reviews online 

(4) Insurance

  • Accident can happen, even to the best.
  • However, if this kind of events happen, you need to be covered
  • There is different kind of insurance (check our other blog post about Removals Insurance Options For Your House Move in 2020
  • The most important is marine cargo insurance or transit insurance to cover your goods, furniture, household.

How to choose Good removalist?

  1. Check the removalist reviews and select a business with a good online reputation.
  2. Stay away from removalist with rates under $90 per hour + GST.
  3. Check the insurance cover and ask for insurance policy proof.
  4. Ask about employees and training. You can find some information on the customer reviews too.
  5. Check social media and photo of the team at work.

What do you need to think about before your apartment move?

If you have any fat or apartments move, Kroos Logistics can surely help you with following expert apartment moving advice and relocation services.

Follow #5 Expert Advice Before Moving Apartment

Before moving,

(1) Did you check the Amount of Furniture that you have?

  • Indeed, we have quite often customers moving to apartments with too many furniture items. The price of an apartment is often higher, volume lower and then less space for your furniture.
Image-of-Kroos-Logistics-Removalist-Team Moving Apartment Furniture
  • On top of that, your storeroom will be smaller than a garage.
  • Check with your real estate as very often white goods (Fridgewashing machine, dryer) are already provided too.
  • One important point is the time spend on your apartment removal: this kind of move takes time (much longer than a house), so if you have less furniture it is obviously better.

(2) Check the Size of your Furniture

  • Before moving anything in your flat, make sure everything fits in the right spot or in the lift.
  • It would be a waste of time and money to move those items up and down and then hassle for you to sell or get rid of that furniture in a short period of time.
  • Ask your moving company if any questions about moving some heavy or bulky furniture. They can advise you about disassembly of cabinet or items too.

(3) Prepare your Packing Thoroughly

  • Packing is the most important point of your relocation. Especially for an apartment.
  • If everything is well organised and in boxes, the move will be easier for the removalist, quicker and then cheaper for you.

Our Happy Customer Success Story- Perth hills delivery

Explore What are requirements of move and How our experts completed the entire move seamless for the owner.

What are moving requirements?

Two weeks ago, we had a booking from Perth to Kalamunda.

Chris was looking for a removalist around Perth to give him a hand. 

He called us to get a quote and know our availability, but especially to know how to manage this particular move due to the items and access.

What are the Challenges? Why this move was specific?

  • Delivery access was very different than a normal house. Driveway was steep and we couldn’t park the truck close to the house 
  • The house was on a hill. The only way to reach the entrance of the house was to go through the garden on an uneven surface 
  • Nature of the items: Jarrah table 10 seaters, Marri Marri table flat top x 4, Jarrah entertainment unit, French door fridge.
Marri Marri table flat top

Now let’s have look at

How our professional experts made the complete move seamless

  • Loading at the Leeming house was steady and pretty fast. As a professional removalist, we are used to this kind of situation. We used our tools and especially our heavy-duty trolleys to make sure we could load efficiently the truck.
  • We couldn’t dismantle the Jarrah table as it was a Taylor made one. So we had to use two dollies and our movers’ skills to make sure it fits through the door.
  • Same for the Marri Marri tabletop ( 4 heavy pieces, 300 kg all up )
  • We had to use a Cart trolley that we normally used for a Pool table or heavy flat top.
  • Delivery at Kalamunda was very difficult. Firstly we couldn’t park the truck close to the house. 
  • Driveway was simply too steep and too narrow. So we had to move every single item up to an 80 meters hill before to reach the house.
  • Then we had to take every single item around the house through the garden ( the Jarrah table weight was 200 kg )

Hard Yakka!

  • We did use all our removalist gears, all our skills and all our power to make sure that this move was done. 

The move was done in 6 hours 45 mins, and Chris our customer was happy and delighted.

  • In this particular case, the only way to relocate those households was to call a moving company.
  • Indeed, the nature of the items and the access required a lot of experience and special tools.
  • This customer needed a big truck with a tail lift too.
