About Me
Moving with horses

Our horses are such an important part of our lifestyle and our family. We are moving next year for my husband's work and one of the most stressful aspects is organising the horse transport. We've done this before and it always turns out okay, but it doesn't make the next time any easier. We can replace our furniture if it gets lost or broken, but our horses are part of our family. This blog is all about organising large animal transport across state lines and has a range of tips to make the process as not stressful as possible for both the animals and the owners.

If you're interested in hiring a furniture removalist service to help you with your move, you could be curious about how much it's going to cost. These are some of the different things that can impact the cost of hiring a furniture removals service. 

How Far Are You Moving?

One of the biggest things that will impact the cost of your move is how far you are moving. Many companies will charge you per kilometre, and they might charge extra if they have to cross state lines. You should also make sure that the moving company that you hire actually handles long-distance moves if you are planning on moving to another state since not all furniture removalists actually offer long-distance moving services.

How Much of a Rush Are You In?

Next, you should know that the cost of your move will be impacted by how much of a rush you are in to move. If you can call well in advance to make arrangements with a furniture removalist, then you might not have to pay extra for preferred service. If you need to call and make arrangements for your move at the last minute, the moving company might be able to accommodate you, but they might charge extra for the service.

How Many Rooms Are In Your Home?

You will probably be asked about how many rooms you have in your home when you call for a quote. Typically, furniture removalists will give you a quote based off of the number of rooms in your home.

Do You Have Large and Heavy Items to Move?

Lastly, you should know that in some cases, furniture removalists will charge extra for moving certain large and heavy items or items that require special care. Make sure that you mention these items, such as pianos that you might have in your home when you're getting a quote. This will help you get the most accurate quote and will help you ensure that the furniture removalist service is properly equipped for the job.

Do You Need Additional Insurance?

Most furniture removalist services have insurance to help cover the value of the items that they are moving. However, if you have items that are of an exceptionally high value — such as high-value art — then you might want to purchase additional insurance to be sure that your items are covered, just in case. The moving company might offer an extra policy, or you might have to pay for one separately from your insurance company.
