Backloading is a term used by removalists, when referring to a load (or loads) that are picked up at a lower price, for the return journey of a vehicle. This term is also often interchanged with the term consolidating.
Express service means, that if you require your goods at your destination on or by a certain date, we can arrange it. There is of course a higher cost component and often you will not be able to consolidate such a load.
Redelivery occurs when your goods have arrived at their destination but you are unable to have them delivered at that time. Your goods will then be unloaded into store, to be redelivered at a later date.
A pre pack service is when the company comes to your home prior to the removal (generally the day before) and packs all of your personal effects (yes even Tupperware) into cartons, ready for the removalist to pick up on your uplift date.
A standard carton is known to many people as a t-chest and has dimensions of 65cm x 45cm square. A book carton is smaller than the standard carton and has dimensions of 40cm x 45cm square. These can be purchased direct from us (in most instances).
At Australia National Removals Group, we strongly recommend not using these for packing. They are not designed for travel and as such are prone to breaking, They do not spread weight evenly and are often made of flimsy material. Pack into cartons instead.
If cartons are not packed to the top, they will compress when stacked upon and this may lead to damage to items packed in the carton. Like wise, if there is room for compression on the sides, crushing can occur.
The best way to transport these items is in cartons specifically made for that purpose. Wine cartons (wine), portarobes (hanging clothes) picture packs (paintings) can all be purchased from a variety of sources.
The main benefit to you is that the glassware won’t need to be washed upon arrival if packing paper has been used. For many people, the last thing they want to do is wash every piece of glass and crockery upon unpacking at their destination.
Your vehicle will be insured, without you taking out a separate policy, during transit. For full details of coverage, please contact one of our friendly office staff by phone 1300 733 605 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
The only items that should be left inside the vehicle are the spare wheel and jack. No other items may be left in your vehicle during transit. Australia National Removals will not be responsible for the loss of any personal effects left inside the vehicle.
We can organise for pick up and delivery to almost anywhere in Australia. In order to keep costs down, most people opt for the service that requires them to deliver their car to the depot (metro area) and pick up from their destination depot.
If this occurs, simply phone or email us with the correct inventory (or just the changes) and we will happily requote you based on what you are actually moving, up to 24hrs prior to the day before your removal.
Provided there is room on the conveying vehicle, we will happily move your extra items, however please be aware that these items are not covered in your original quotation and will attract extra charges.
