Hiring the Cheapest Removalist
Can Come With Some Risks

Moving can be an expensive task – it feels like there’s one cost after another. You have to buy packing boxes, there’s lots of hidden and unexpected cots, you may have to pay for damages, and more. And if you’re on a budget, you’ll be tempted to find the cheapest removalist around. In our
While working with a shoestring budget is okay sometimes there are big risks when it comes to hiring the cheapest removalist. This is because when it comes to removalists, you get what you pay for – and for the most part, most of the cheap removalists are inexperienced, not qualified and may not have the resources you need to move securely. Specifically, you end up with an inappropriately sized vehicle, which causes a big risk to your valuables, precious furniture, adding to your moving stress as well as unexpected costs.
Yes, a cheap removalist may save an extra coin for you but at what cost? In most cases, you end up incurring more costs than hiring a relatively expensive but reliable removalist.

Some of the Risks that Come With Hiring a Cheap Removalist

A Cheap Removalist Can Cause Damage to Your Furniture

Choosing a cheap and inexperienced removalist means that you risk damaging your furniture. Loading a removal truck efficiently while ensuring that all your furniture and other house equipment is safe is a bit of an art form.
You need an experienced removalist with appropriately-sized vehicles and the right personnel to securely load, transport, and unload your furniture and other household equipment. You can’t expect to get such services when you pay bargain-basement prices.  When choosing a removalist, make sure their team is AFRA certified. The AFRA is an independent body of removalist experts that offer training and complete audits on removalists to see if their service is up to standard.

Cheap Removalists Usually Have Limited Staff

Most cheap removalist companies operate on skeleton staff to save on costs. This means that a firm may not have a big enough team to handle all tasks which means furniture removal processes which require a team to complete may not be completed safely and up to standard.
Some cheaper removalist companies will tempt their customers with a very low hourly rate, however take much longer to complete the job anyway because they haven’t got the team to get the job done quickly and effectively. Not to mention, some cheap removalists don’t help with packing and unpacking your furniture and other pieces of equipment or are capable of safely disassembling and assembling your furniture to a high standard.

You May Not be Covered When You Choose The Cheapest Removalist

There are a few insurances every removalist must offer to ensure their customers are protected:

Cheap Removalists Usually Lack Credibility

Most cheap removalist don’t have a website or strong online presence. This makes their credibility questionable since there is no reputation to uphold. You may hire the cheapest removalist in Sydney but suffer more consequences during transit.
To assess their credibility, you should hire a removalist with a website and many 5-star reviews on Google or customer testimonials. This way, you can be sure to end up with the best removalist company at an affordable price.

Hidden Extra Cost

They say cheap is expensive, which is especially true when it comes to hiring the cheapest removalist. Some removalist companies fail to include all the extra fees on the quote, and you may end up paying more than others.
That’s why it’s important to ask yourself why the quote is so cheap. Consider whether it contains such costs like:
This list contains some of the fees most “cheap” removalists omit from their quote. Nonetheless, to have your furniture and household items delivered securely, you’ll have to pay them eventually.

Cheaper Removalists Usually Lack Professionalism

How the removalist firm behaves during the relocation is a key determinant of the success of your move. Such things as driving safely, notifying you when they’re running late, and knowing how to pack and load your items can go a long way towards making your move a success. It reduces headaches and ensures your items are handled and delivered safely. A removalist who takes pride in their job has a standard of professionalism to uphold. Unfortunately, many cheap removalists can often fall short of acting professionally leaving you with a sub par service.

Backloading is utilising the empty space of one of our removalist trucks that's completing an interstate or long distance removalist job. This will typically be a truck that's returning from the state or town it originally came from.
