Why You Should Avoid The Cheapest Furniture Removal Companies

If you have ever moved house or decided to have a full clear out of large items in your existing home, then you will already know that organising furniture removal is one of the most important elements to get right.

If your furniture removal experience is a bad or low quality one, then the entire project is likely to be one that goes wrong at more turns than you would like.

Here at Caloundra Removals, if there is one thing that we have learnt in our time as a well-reputed firm, it is that you can’t afford to skimp on prices for this kind of thing.

We are by no means expensive, but we definitely charge a fair price for good service!

Here is why you should avoid the cheapest furniture removal companies.

  • Cheaper, unregulated removal companies are prone to hiring day workers with little to no experience, and this means that your furniture can be put at risk by people who don’t know how to properly handle it and store it within a van. Going with the training and experience of a well-reputed firm is always the best course of action.
  • A trick that a lot of less honest companies like to pull is surprising you with hidden costs and fees right at the end of the job. It is a simple and effective way to make extra money because they have your furniture for ransom. We never make those kinds of decisions in our day to day business because we respect our customers too much.
  • Quite simply, if you want to have a job done properly, you are going to have to pay what you believe it is worth. In any area of business, if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. If you are paying next to nothing for your furniture removal, then you are going to receive the kind of service that feels like next to nothing as well.

So, if you are in the position of needing a furniture removal company in the near future, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

We will be able to provide you with a fair and reasonable quote in no time at all, one that we think is the perfect combination of budget fitting with stellar service guaranteed!

Following the recent lockdown for South East Queensland, we can advise we are operating as normal as our industry is deemed an essential service. Our crews have all the required PPE and many are being regularly tested.

Unfortunately our Sydney operation based in Ingleburn is restricted to receiving and dispatching freight from our warehouse only.

We are not servicing Victoria ourselves but are working closely with our agents of more than 20 years to ensure we service our customers moving to or from Victoria the best we can.

North Queensland is operating as per normal.
