Every day people ask me, how long in advance should I schedule a move? The quick answer is, it varies, so here is the long answer.
In terms of booking a furniture removalist, earlier is always better. Especially with a smaller company like Flex Removals, we only have one small truck and one large truck in our fleet. So if the truck you want is booked out for a particular day, then unfortunately you might miss out.
The last thing we want you to do is get really excited about moving with Flex Removals and then call us up on the day of your move and hoping that expecting that we will definitely be able to fit you in. Unfortunately we can’t always do that because we are an incredibly busy business. It is important to schedule your move at least one or two weeks in advance.
Don’t get me wrong, if you have a last minute move, by all means give us a call and we can try to accommodate you and try to provide all the help we can. But bear in mind that sometimes customers might be disappointed because we are just too busy to help them right away.
So, give us a call as soon as you know. Give us as much notice as you can and we’ll get you all booked in to make sure that your next move is successful.
It is also important to remember that you need to give yourself some time to pack and prepare for the move. If you leave your move to the last minute, then chances are the packing has been left to the last minute as well. Sometimes this is unavoidable, but lack of planning and preparation are the main reasons for higher removalists costs. Small items take a lot longer to pack than many people think, both into boxes and also into the truck.
So take the time and start to make those removalist plans a few weeks before the actual moving day. Trust us when we say that you will reap the rewards of a far smoother and less stressful move with Flex Removals.
We recommend you ask the Real Estate Agents as soon as you know your moving date to confirm that everything is alright on their end for moe out days and times and to hand the keys over.
