Better Home Removals use our expertise to help clients with multiple moves more often than you might think. Not everyone enjoys the luxury of a straightforward pickup at home ‘A’, then drop-off at home ‘B’. If only life were that simple! It’s not, and that’s where experts in the logistics of multiple moves will save you time and money.
Multiple moves are required for many reasons, including:
Wedding or two families becoming one – pickup from his, pickup from hers, drop-off at theirs
Selling before buying, and renting temporarily – pickup from home, drop-off some goods in rental property and the remainder in storage.
New home ready – pickup from old place (home or rental) and from storage, drop-off in new home.
The combinations of multiple pickups and drop-offs, and the reasons for them, are endless. All moves can occur on the same day, or be spread over a period of months, depending on circumstances. What they all have in common is a logistical expert determining optimum numbers of trucks and men for the most cost-effective move in each individual case.
One of our valued clients perfectly illustrates the multiple move scenario. They sold their home and bought another off-the-plan and, while waiting on their new place being completed, moved into an investment property they owned. Being an apartment, it was considerably smaller than their house and couldn’t fit all their furniture. Additionally, they’ve since sold the investment property and are living with relatives until their new place is ready. So, their multiple move unfolded as:
Phase 1 – pickup from home, partial drop-off at apartment and partial in storage
Phase 2 – declutter of apartment for sale, pickup from apartment and drop-off in storage
Phase 3 – apartment sold, pickup from apartment and drop-off in storage
Phase 4 – new home ready, pickup from storage, drop-off in new home
An extreme example, maybe? But a clear demonstration of the varying needs we encounter regularly. In this case we were able to use our experience in loading the truck to facilitate quick drop-offs at various locations. We organised discounted storage rates. We rationalised storage on the 2nd and 3rd drop-off to ensure our client continued to pay for the minimum amount of space necessary.
All of which minimises duplication of effort, bringing significant savings for our client. Added to the skill and care with which we handle all goods entrusted to us for moving and you’ll understand why we enjoy repeat business from this client and others like them.
