Removalists – godsend or god awful?

Removalists should be able to make our lives easier. When people need to change homes, there’s often a lot of heavy lifting that needs to occur. Most people can carry a cardboard box of belongings to a car and be able to stuff it into the back seat. With enough effort, a regular armchair shouldn’t be a problem either. The hard part comes when the ‘real’ large objects need moving. In the days when analogue televisions were common, they were monsters. The largest ones were undoubtedly the heaviest ones. You’d be lucky if you could get three regular people to help carry one out. If you had to carry at least two or three, you’d have to ask for professional paid assistance. Home removalists Sydney could then be worth their weight in gold. They were happy to get their hands dirty and red raw with pressure. Those large televisions, the couches, the tables — the removalists would carry them out with barely a complaint. After all, it’s what you pay them for — to do the heavy lifting you can’t or won’t do. 

Unfortunately, not everyone has good stories to tell about removalists. For one reason or another, there are occasions when they just cannot get the job done. They may have arrived late to the home so the owners wouldn’t have enough time to get everything moved from one property to the next. The removals process may have been shoddy or clumsy. Even though removalists should be trained and physically capable of heavy lifting, you can’t always guarantee reliability of their services. It only takes a single lapse in concentration or a single pang of pain to drop something onto the ground — or your foot. After that, you’re praying that not everything is broken.

There have been some rather strange incidents when it comes to employing removalists. On the far end of the ‘bizarre’ spectrum, there have been cases where neighbours’ or stray cats have urinated on the assets that you were trying to move. For whatever reason they were allowed to soil your belongings because the removalists were busy elsewhere. Whose fault could that be, though? Are you expected to watch your belongings all the time or the people you employed to move them?
The most common criticisms of removalists in recent times have been two of the more basic complaints: property care, and prices. It’s common for people to want value for money but it’s also necessary for companies to need to feed themselves. You can’t always win if the removalists need those extra dollars to get the job done. On the other hand, if they can’t do their job properly, that’s another issue. There are things you really don’t want shattered on the concrete.
Still, sometimes you have no choice. You can’t move a couch by yourself so removalists are better than nothing.
