Frequently asked questions

Yes, absolutely. Please mention this at the time of booking, as it may make a difference to the provider we match you with. 

Some companies will have storage at the destination and some at the pickup. Some even include complimentary storage!

When quoting on your job, we provide the name and reviews of the company that matches your inquiry. Although we vet every company on our system, we encourage you to do your own due dilligence on the company you choose.

We only work with experienced and reputable moving companies and its in their best interests to pack accurately in the trucks for two main reasons:

  1. It maximizes the space available.
  2. A tight well-loaded vehicle ensures less movement and motion on the road/rail. 

Each company has differing policies about notification before the pickup and delivery. Some companies can provide a time window on booking, others provide this the day before, while others will provide notice within an hour of their arrival. 

Muval is a booking platform. We find reliable moving companies at a competitive rate. We help companies fill their space with customers that are happy to fit in with the truck schedule. It is called a shared load option.

If you have the original TV box, please use it. You can also purchase TV storage/removal boxes from storage centres. If you don’t have a box and can’t source one, the removalist will use heavy-duty blankets to protect the TV.

Yes, it can, as long as you notify us before booking your move.

When looking at your kitchen, the industry standard is one book carton to each cupboard door. 

If you have booked the shared truck option, then yes. If you have booked a premium option, then you will not be sharing the truck.
