Questions people ask when moving house

Finding a removalist that you can trust can be tough. Reading reviews is a good place to start, but it often doesn't give you the full story as there will often be a blend of 5 star and 1 star reviews that are both compelling. In fact, we often say that the most honest removalists won't have a perfect history with reviews, as undoubtedly somewhere along the way they will pick up some negative reviews due to the nature of the work.

Muval takes the guesswork out of finding a good mover by hand-picking the moving companies on our platform. Each removalist needs to pass our vetting and quality assurance process before they are listed as available to book.

Moving house on a weekend or public holiday can attract premium hourly rates from removalists. If you want to choose a cheap day to move, consider booking your move for a Wednesday or Thursday.
The earlier you book your move the more confident you can be that the date you wish to move will be available. However, the time in advance that you should book is heavily dependent on the time of year. Between October and March we recommend booking at least 2-3 weeks in advance of when you want to move. From March - September you can leave it a little later, booking 1-2 weeks out.
The cost of your local move is dependent on how long your move takes. All removalists charge by the half-hour, and the time your move takes will depend on factors such as: how close the truck can park to your house (to minimise walking time), whether you have multiple flights of stairs to climb each time the truck is loaded, if beds and other items of furniture need to be disassembled, and so on. To make your move cheaper consider:
  1. Disassembling all of your furniture (like beds) yourself
  2. Moving all of your boxes in to the garage on your ground floor to make them quicker to load
  3. Help the removalists load the truck on the day
  4. Ensure there is easy-access parking to your property
  5. Move pot plants and other difficult items yourself
  6. You don't need to book to move everything! You can just book the number of hours you want, and move the rest yourself

What every removalist wants you to know before you move

Local moves are priced based on the time it takes to move your designated items. Very few removalists will give you a fixed price for your move, and it usually works out better to be charged based on time anyway because it gives you the flexibility to use as much or as little time as you want.

The level of access to your property will be a major determining factor in how long your move will take. Obstacles like many flights of stairs, steep driveways, no parking out the front of your residence, elevators, and so on can dramatically slow down the time taken to load an unload the truck. Other factors like having multiple pot plants (that often need to be carried one at a time) can also slow down loading and unloading.

If you're looking for ways to save money, you can always:

  1. Disassemble all of your furniture (like beds) yourself
  2. Move all of your boxes in to the garage on your ground floor to make them quicker to load
  3. Help the removalists load the truck on the day
  4. Ensure there is easy-access parking to your property
  5. Move pot plants and other difficult items yourself
  6. You don't need to book to move everything! You can just book the number of hours you want, and move the rest yourself

As mentioned above, the cost for your local move will depend on how long your move takes. Some dishonest moving companies quote very cheap hourly or half-hourly rates to get your job, and then work slowly on the day or surprise you with additional charges in order to make more money.

Unless they are running a limited special offer, most honest removal companies need to charge at least $45 per half hour or more in order to pay their staff (two people usually come to load and unload the truck for you), pay their insurances, and make sure their trucks are serviced regularly.

Reading reviews is a great way to determine if a removalist is the right one for you. Platforms like Google, Product Review or Muval are great for this because they have built-in mechanisms to ensure reviews are from genuine people that have actually interacted with that business.

However, we advise to be cautions of moving companies with hundres of reviews and a perfect 5 star rating on these platforms as reviews unfortunately can be faked. Don't get us wrong: honest companies with a perfect 5 star rating do exist and they are excellent (we have a few on our platform!). But, given the nature of furniture removalist work, something, at some point, is bound to go wrong. Maybe the truck breaks down and is late for a job. Maybe someone accidentally trips and some items in a box are damaged. Whatever it is, accidents unfortunately do happen and these sorts of occassions rarely attract a 5 star rating.

Because of this, companies with a 4.5 or above rating are often just as good as a company with a perfect 5. So, we suggest, instead of looking for all 5-star reviews, take a look at a companies worst reviews and pay special attention to how they responded to the issue. Were they sympathetic? Did they respond promptly? Did they offer a resolution? Were they contactable for the customer to voice their concerns? These are the sorts of things that separate the best removalists from those who don't deliver a high level of service.

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.

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.

The best way to ensure a successful move day is to be prepared. One way to do this is to notify your removalist about any very heavy or awkward-to-move items before move day. It can never hurt to double-check with them that they understand that you have these items, even if you have also submitted an inventory list. These sorts of items include:

  • Grand / Baby grand piano
  • Pizza oven
  • Concrete furniture
  • Pool / snooker tables (particularly slate)
  • Many pot plants / large pot plants

Why should you book with Muval? The benefits are clear:
