by Isabel Blamey Professional writer
The following article is all about hiring a removalist in Sydney and 5 common mistakes that you should avoid to prevent the wrong hire.

Are you relocating to a new place? It may sound easier to move out from your old place and start living in a new location, but the reality is different. It is not only about packing bags and leaving the place. Relocating to a new place means packing your entire household including the furniture, décor items, etc. and moving everything into the new place. And without a professional mover by your side, it will be hectic to take care of everything. Besides, there will be other things that you need to handle before you move, such as updating your address in the post office, collecting transfer certificates from your kids’ school, completing legal works regarding your address change, and paying off the pending payments, etc. And therefore, you will need a removalist in Sydney to plan your entire relocation. But how can you find the right team among the huge options? Well, this article will help you with that.

Do not make these mistakes while hiring a moving company for your relocation!!

Even though you have plenty of experience in relocation and it is not your first time, still there are chances for making mistakes. No one intends to make mistakes on their own but it happens. One of the most common reasons is too many options. With the increasing numbers of moving and relocations, you will find lots of packers and movers around. But not all of them are the right ones for your requirements. And hence, you should always stay away from the following 5 hiring mistakes:

1. Hiring a cheaper option is great:

Since there are lots of movers around, you will find different movers with different service rates. Some may seem too expensive, while some may seem too cheap. Going after the cheaper option may look like a smart move, but it is not. Often some moving companies provide rates that are way cheaper than the standard moving charges. This type of team are scammers. Either they will charge you more at the time of delivery or threaten you to sell your belongings.

2. The referrals are enough to judge the team:

Never judge a moving team based on the referrals you have got. Just because one of your friends or family members liked the packing and moving services from the removalist, it does not mean that they will interest you too. Experts suggest you to always do the research across the website and social media channels of the team to understand if they are the right fit for you or not.

3. The home survey is not necessary:

Even though you have taken all the measurements of your belongings, the removals have to take a survey in your home and get a personalised look over your items before starting their work. If the team insists on talking over the telephone only, then there are chances that they will scam you with extra charges at the time of delivery.

4. Talking is a waste of time:

Talking is not a waste of time, especially when you are about to leave your belongings off under the supervision of an unknown team. Experts recommend asking lots of questions to be sure that the team you are hiring is the good one and you have understood the entire process.

5. All positive reviews mean it is the best:

Do you think that having all 5/5 reviews means that the team is the best one? Well, you are wrong this time. No mover can provide a 100% satisfaction rate to all the clients they have worked with. Hence, not all of their clients will give them 5-star reviews. It mostly happens when the reviews are fake or scripted.


Hiring a removalist in Sydney is the best decision you should make while planning to move out of your old place. But how can you find the right team from the thousands of options around? Well, following some simple tricks, you can avoid the common mistakes and prevent the wrong hire. We hope this article will be of help.
