Frequently asked questions

If you need to change the delivery or pick up date, please advise the removalist as early as possible. They can sometimes accommodate changes and reschedule but this has a few variables. 

Preferably No, It is better to use a fitted sheet on each side of your mattresses to enclose. 

If your booking is a premium service, the company will be able to provide exact timing. If your booking is a shared option, then your schedule will be a window between two to seven hours on the move day.

The packing service is not included in our standard pricing. Please check with our support team to get a quotation.

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

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!

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.

A cubic metre is 1m x 1m x 1m. A full-sized container size is 38m3. 

Truck sizes vary from 20m3 to 70m3 and sometimes 100m3.

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.
