Frequently Asked Questions
- How much notice do you need?
Not much. Up to the day before pickup for Pickups from any Capital City. For other locations, trucks may not be as frequent, so allow a little longer.
Of course you can book much earlier if you wish. You can book as soon as you have a definite date in mind. (Dates can always be changed, at no extra cost).
- How long does it normally take to get there ?
Approximate transit times are sent to you with each quote. These are average times only and any number of factors can cause delays or a faster arrival than expected. We will SMS text you the day before delivery and ring approx 1 hour before. It is advisable to have someone on standby if you are not available whenthe driver arrives.
- Do we need Transit Protection?
This question is difficult to answer as different people have different attitudes to Transit Protection. For example some people insure their homes, and some don't. As our Conditions of Contract exclude us from liabilty, we recommend that you may wish to consider our Transit Protection Options. Transit Protection rates accompany our quotations.
- How firm are your prices?
We prefer not to have to ammend a price once it has been quoted. However we are relying on you to provide an accurate assessment of the goods to be moved. You should also keep in mind that we have not seen what you have seen. So if there are likely to be unusual access problems that may cause additional delays or costs, these will be charged for if not advised prior to pickup.

- What sort of equipment do you use?
We use only fully equipped furniture removal trucks and containers. It is a prerequisite that each vehicle contains ample furniture removal pads, blankets and ties to protect your unwrapped furniture items during transit. All vehicles have tie-rails so that your furniture can be fixed securely into position for the journey ahead, preventing the load from shifting and crushing fragile items.
- What additional services do you provide?
- We understand that if we can't provide everything that you are looking for at a price that can't be beat, we won't get your business. Choice is a cornerstone of our approach to business. From the bare essentials to the works, with us, the options are endless:
Fridges &/or freezers are to be empty of all food items prior to the trucks arrival. Ensure all water is drained as water may leak from the appliance when tilted onto the removal trolley. This also includes washing machines.
- Backloading or Exclusive Use Vehicles
- Packing and Material Supplies
- Tiered Transit Protection Options
