Are cheap removalists dodgy? Part 3

Share :

This is a great question to ask prospective moving companies “ How many furniture pads does each of your trucks have and are they proper felt furniture pads?”. Most shotty dodgy removalists are cheap because they have very low overheads, eg. Cheap trucks, cheap labour and cheap equipment. In my long stint as one of the quality adelaide removalists, I have seen the  other less desirable removalists do household removals with only a few blankets  and no trolleys or sack trucks. And the blankets that they did have were like bed sheets. This is something that is extremely dodgy especially when dealing with timber furniture and white goods.  Excellent Adelaide removalists use lots of thick felt pads and have good strong trolleys and removalists ropes to ensure your furniture is taken care of. Tomorrows post will be the best question you can ask any removalist on the phone.
