There are two ways in which to quote or estimate your move –
- A Fixed Price is the more traditional way. Some people have a fixed or bugeted sum set aside for a removal quote and we are happy to come out and assess your move, so if that’s what you are after, please mention it to the ab fab operations team.
However it is worth bearing in mind that in arriving at a fixed price, the assessor will build in time contingencies. This can have the effect of artificially inflating the cost and hence we would invariably advocate an hourly rate as being in the customer’s best interests..
Often a customer will simply compare hourly rates between companies and make a choice on that basis. However do consider what can go wrong by making your selection of removalists on that basis alone;
Tempted to move yourself?
Think very carefully before you do is our best advice.
Did you know how much your excess is should you damage a hired removal vehicle? It starts at between $2750 and $5500 and even if you pay to reduce the excess, you will be in for $550 on a small truck to up to $1100! You may well find that the move costs you more than hiring a professional removalist in the first place.
You also run the awful risk of injuring yourself. There are techniques to correct lifting procedures and the last thing you need is an injury that may well affect you for years to come. Rather leave it to the professionals and enjoy the peace of mind.
