Frequently Asked Questions  

My complex has a 3 ton restriction?

Please see our explanation of complex misconceptions (Townhouse Complex Requirements – pdf) regarding size and weight of trucks – generally a 1 ton bakkie loaded with 1 ton of load will weigh approx.. 2,2 to 3 ton GVM in total and thus may be the only vehicle allowed by your Body Corporate/Managing Agent/Security and therefore, ferry/shuttle fees for additional vehicle and driver and extra time may be required.

I have my own guys to load and offload?

Whilst we do not recommend self-moving of your valuable goods yourself we do offer DIY moving services – please enquire with our normal channels for more info on this option.

What happens if I miscalculated my furniture or forgot to mention heavy items?

 We would still move your goods on the day of your move but there will be an assessment and additional charges payable in cash to the driver of the day of your moving. This also applies to items not noted to us as being abnormally heavy or large such as concrete or railway sleeper furniture.

Are my goods insured?

No – same as with other reputable registered Removal firms.  Whilst we take the utmost care in the handling of your goods we do contract out of liability unless the once-off insurance that is optional is opted for, by you. Beware of automatic insurance removal quotations that may have nasty surprises should something go wrong such as abnormally high excesses or possibly no actual cover at all – always insist on a Removal Cover certificate from the insurers specific to your move, to be sure that it is legitimate.


Can I get a quick price for moving just a few kilometres down the road?

Sure but we would still need a full inventory to determine the size truck we need and how many staff members as it will still take time to pack safely and securely as well as unpack your goods and place them where you want them.

I haven’t finished packing and have “some” loose items?

As a rule we do not move loose items  – the rule of thumb is if it can fit into a box it needs to be packed into a box and sealed.

What are the hidden costs?

There are none – all pricing is detailed on our quote sent to you. Additional fees are only levied when we are not made aware of any items/goods, difficulties at loading or offloading, time waiting/standing or other similar issues for your move. Please carefully check your quotation for all the optional extras.
