How long will my move take and how much will it cost? admin 2017-12-17T01:56:02+10:00
It depends. We will strive to give you the most accurate quote possible by ascertaining how long the move will take. You can help by telling us the access points at both the pick-up and delivery addresses and giving us an accurate inventory of your items.
You can also reduce the hourly rate by packing everything before we arrive, organising parking close to both homes, advising your neighbours you are going to move so that they free up the lifts and stairways for you, helping us move your items and making sure you know the fastest way to your new home.
Our quotes may differ from the price charged on the day of the move. This is because of surprises such as clients who do not finish packing so we finish for them, clients who understate the number of items, traffic, lack of access at the delivery point (especially in apartment complexes), clients forgetting their exact new address and more.
Why do you charge a call out fee? admin 2017-12-17T01:56:52+10:00
Driving a truck around Sydney can be expensive – fuel, parking, tolls, even keeping a big truck roadsafe. We need to make sure this is covered so that the truck can arrive safely and on time to your home! Some other removalists will charge you from the time they leave their door – we believe this is unfair. Fuel costs and tolls can be variable and there is no guarantee for you that these businesses are counting their hours on the road properly. A flat call out fee avoids any nasty surprises.
When do you start charging your hourly rate and when does it end? admin 2015-07-09T18:44:09+10:00
We start when we arrive at your door, not a moment earlier. We finish when you are satisfied that all your items are safe in your home and round up to the minimum 2 hours or to the next half hour above that.
How does your charge rate work after the minimum two hours? admin 2018-08-15T05:02:45+10:00
We charge at every half hour after the minimum two hours. For example, John hired 2 removalists to work on a Thursday (hourly rate = $110ph). The move takes 2 hours and 20 minutes. We will charge John $50 + ($110x 2) + $55 = $325.
We accept cash or card. Please pay the amount requested by the driver or supervisor on the day of the move. Please note that all card payments (debit, EFTPOS or credit) incur a 2.2% surcharge.
Only repeat business clients who have submitted their ABN can request payment via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). If paying by EFT, request an EFT payment leaflet from your mover. He will provide you with a card which states the BSB, account name and number and an email address so you can request your online invoice. Please follow all the instructions!
When should I book my move? vmove 2018-03-04T00:40:45+10:00
To avoid disappointment and get your preferred date and time for your move, we recommend booking 2 weeks in advance for a weekend move (Friday-Sunday) and a week in advance for a weekday move. Booking any later than this period may mean we are booked out for your preferred date and time.
Can you give me a fixed quote? admin 2018-02-22T23:15:21+10:00
Fixed quotes for 3+ bedroom homes, interstate and regional NSW moves are available upon request. In order to provide you with a fixed quote, we will need to visit your home and make a quick inspection. The quote is at no cost and obligation-free. If you need to arrange this call us on 0474220573 or us or email us at [email protected]
Are you insured? What happens if my goods are damaged? vmove 2019-01-31T11:38:04+10:00
Yes, we are. We have public liability insurance. The certificate is available by e-mail upon request.
We also cover damage to good in transit if the damage was caused by us up to $100 per item but not exceeding $500 in total per move. You must provide evidence that this was caused by the removalists or packers. We will not cover goods damaged due to clients’ mispacking or due to an Act of God as per our Terms and Conditions.
Do you move pianos? How much will it cost? admin 2019-01-31T11:50:39+10:00
Yes, we do and we have a lot of experience! Count how many steps there are up and down at both access points. We move pianos for $150 base then +$30 for every step up and +$20 for every step down.
If you are moving the piano by itself (no other furniture or boxes), quotes start from $400.
Please advise us of the piano when you book your move. Special equipment needs to be brought to your move if a piano is involved. We will charge the time it takes to pick up the equipment if you have not given us advance notice.
Can you move large specialty items? Do you move items over-the-balcony? What about valuable items? vmove 2019-05-07T07:50:19+10:00
Please advise us of any items which weigh more than 80kg (such as pianos, marble furniture, snooker tables, double door fridges, commercial fridges, safes and large potted plants) at the time of booking. They may require an additional man which could incur extra charges.
A general guideline follows:
We move upright pianos $150 base +$30 for every step up +$20 for every step down
Double door fridges over stairs are an extra $50.
Potted plants over 2m high and/or weighing more than 80kg – quoted separately, please email photos to [email protected]
Over the balcony moves – 3 men required and extra fee of $150
Please also advise us of any items which exceed the value of $300 each such as antiques, pianos, works of art and jewellery) at the time of booking. Though we can transport these items for you, please note our insurance covers only up to $100 for each item and no more than $500 for the whole move. Therefore, we highly recommend you move these yourself or if you request we move it arrange insurance separately for each valuable item. To find out more, read our Terms and Conditions.
