In a perfect world, everything goes smoothly and all the best laid plans come into fruition.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world. Plans go awry most of the time, and sometimes we need to make drastic adjustments. This includes moving from home to home in some cases. There are times when you need to move ahead of schedule, or worse, even make an unscheduled move.
But ask any company specialising in removals in Perth and you will understand that rush removals are, though difficult, very much possible.
Below are 6 essential tips you need to remember when faced with the prospect of rush removals:
1. Keep Calm
Sure. You now have to act fast, but it doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Think things through. Haste makes waste after all. It is better to keep a slower pace than to keep retracing because of missteps.
2. Understand Payments
As with most other services, you need to realise that you may end up paying more for your removal simply because it is of a rushed nature.
3. Be Clear
Be upfront with the removal company right from the get-go and let them know how soon you need to move. Be firm about the dates. This way, you can set expectations on both sides and avoid misunderstandings as the removal date nears.
4. Don’t Get Desperate
You still need to maintain an aura of a firm client. Don’t sound desperate and let the company know you are taking others into consideration as well. This will help you avoid removal services who may take advantage of your situation.
5. Get Organised
Everyone knows how important it is to get organised. As important as it is during such times, it is even more crucial when it comes to rushed moves. Get your belongings packed in as orderly a manner as you can.
6. Don’t Settle for Less
While there is understandably little time left to play the field and scout for the best services available, it shouldn’t mean you have to settle for the first one that comes along. Take what little time you have left—no matter how short—to choose wisely.
Planned or not; moving is a naturally hectic process anyway. Keep these tips in mind and you will enjoy a smoother move; no matter how rushed it is.
