Anyone can buy a removals truck, setup a website and market themselves as a reputable company. There are no regulation in the moving trade. Therefore, we have outlined a few steps below to lead you in the right direction.
1. Ask friends, family or acquaintances if they know of any good Melbourne movers
Social media sites like facebook can be very useful for this since you’ll be
getting first hand experiences from people you can trust rather than believing
online reviews which are not always accurate.
2. Check online review sites for removalists in Melbourne. Google “best movers melbourne” and the first few sites will lead you to WOMO, True local or a forum.
Beware of PR companies or removalists posting amazing reviews about themselves
3. Get written quotes and hourly rates as well as terms of service
Ask for onsite appraisals for 3-4 bedrooms and office moves. This way you can
actually get to know the people behind the business or website.
4. Then trust your gut instinct based on your overall impression of the company.
A calculated approach combined with your natural instinct should lead you to finding a reputable company.
