Stress-Free Furniture Removals
Whether you're a business owner planning to relocate your company offices or a homeowner moving the family to a new house, the process of transporting your valuable furniture can often seem like a daunting and overwhelming task.
Luckily, professional furniture removalists are there to take the stress out of your move. Hiring a professional furniture transport company means you can rest assured that all of your personal and professional belongings will be safely and securely shipped to your new property.
What Do Furniture Removalists Do?
If you've been planning to relocate your family or business but aren’t sure why you should hire professionals, here are some of the benefits of using a furniture removals company:
Access to tailor-made moving equipment
One of the main benefits of using furniture removalists is the fact that their business will already be equipped with all of the specific moving equipment that you may need when relocating; thereby saving you a great deal of time, money and hassle!
Furniture removalists have ready access to made-to-measure crates, plastic protection bags and cartons for packing large electrical items, furniture and mattresses. They can provide custom wrapping services and seemingly endless rolls of shock-resistant bubble wrap to protect delicate items, antiques and soft furnishings.
Efficient vehicles for the size of your load
A professional furniture transport company will come equipped with everything you could possibly need, including ensuring that all of your furniture will fit in their vehicle! What's more, furniture removalists will also own and operate a wide range of trucks, forklifts and dollies so that your possessions will be carefully loaded and handled en route to their new home.
Experience and reliability
Using a furniture transport company, you can be confident that your belongings will be handled by trustworthy people who have amassed a wealth of on-the-job moving experience. They'll know how to move furniture around tight corners or up and down stairs without accidents.
Take the stress out of moving
Moving is known to be stressful, whether you're transporting your belongings a few kilometres or relocating to a different state.
It can be exhausting and frustrating trying to ensure that all the packaging has been done, everything is accounted for and your possessions will be carefully handled en route to your new home or office.
Professional furniture removalists will offer individually tailored relocation support throughout every aspect of the moving process, from helping you to pack your belongings securely to labelling your items and creating an inventory. They'll take the backache out of loading and unloading and help you place your furniture in position without incident.

Will My Goods Be Tied Up Securely?

Can Items Be Taken Upstairs?
Yes, items can be taken upstairs if needed, and can also be assembled. Transport providers on Shiply are happy to provide these services, but you should ensure that you are mentioning these requirements in your listings as it may mean a second person is required for the move.

Can I Change The Address Of The Delivery?
If you have not yet accepted a quote then you are able to change the address of your listing.
