Downsizing

It all started with a single question.

Why isn’t there a niche property portal for the downsizers and retiree market?

It was 2003, and as the eldest daughter & daughter-in-law, we had just started the search for accommodation options for elderly parents. It wasn’t an easy or a pleasant experience and there was very little information available online.

It got us thinking – so we started talking to other families in similar situations and found they were just as confused and frustrated as we were.

So we built Downsizing.com.au, a website designed to be easy to use - a one-stop-portal to help consumers easily navigate the fragmented and complex retirement living and aged care sector in Australia.

Why our removalists are different

Muval removalists are a new standard for quality and care.

Each furniture removals company available on our platform must pass our 7-step verification process. We also conduct regular audits and check-ups to make sure vital insurances are up-to-date, and quality standards are being upheld. Many of our removalists are also members of the Australian Furniture Removalists Association (AFRA).

When you book your removalist with Muval, you get a company that cares about going the extra mile to make sure your next move is an easy one.

It's moving, the way it should be.

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

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

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. 

To see the pricing, you will need to click on the link in your email. This will take you to our website where you can see your options.

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. 

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. 

No one expects that you keep the original box that your TV came in when you bought it. Most removalists can provide special TV moving cardboard boxes that can help to keep your TV safe and secure while being transported (make sure you enquire about this before your move day. Otherwise, you can protect your television by wrapping it in blankets and then wrapping that tightly in cling film. Finally, as a peace of mind measure, we recommend purchasing one of our affordable moving insurance policies to protect your most valuable possessions like your TV in case of an accident.

Packing and unpacking boxes for your house is not usually included by default when you book a removalist. This is a service that needs to be booked separately (you can do this through Muval) or done yourself, and is best arranged for a day or two before your removalist is scheduled to do your uplift.

In our experience, people always dramatically under estimate the time it takes to pack their house, and it's usually one of the most burdensome tasks of moving! If you're packing yourself, make sure you start early and do a couple of boxes a day. Otherwise, save yourself the hassle and book packing services through Muval. Your future self will thank you.
