Furniture Removals Port Elizabeth

10 Questions to Ask before Choosing a Furniture Removals Company in Port Elizabeth…

If you are moving to, from, or within Port Elizabeth in the near future, it is time to choose the furniture removals company you will be partnering with. This choice might be one of the most important ones related to your relocation process you will be making.

You often hear about how stressful it is to move and you may even have experienced it yourself before. Yet, it really does not have to be. With smart planning and an experienced, quality furniture removals company that knows Port Elizabeth by your side, the process can be stress-free and hassle-free, with as little disruption to your life as possible while relocating.

So, how exactly do you go about finding the perfect furniture removals company? And, since every relocation is different, how do you know you have found the one that is right for you? Here are ten important questions to ask when kicking off your search… and how Elliott Mobility answers on those questions:

 

Q: Where Does Their Service Start? Do They Simply Do Furniture Removals, Or Are They A Relocation Partner?

A: Most people are forced to do all the planning and preparation for their big move during the evening and over weekends, due to work commitments. This is stressful and not ideal.

The team at Elliott Mobility does so much more than only furniture removals. Our entire aim is to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. From creating the necessary checklists and packing to transportation and unloading, we specialise in designing full-service solutions to take care of every aspect of your move, so that you can focus on the things that are important to you. We even offer handyman and valet services to get you set up and feeling at home in your new place right from the start.

 

Q: How Well Does the Moving Company Know Port Elizabeth, And Can They Assist You with Your Integration into The Community?

A: If you are moving to Port Elizabeth (and the same goes for the destination city if you are moving from Port Elizabeth), it is preferable to partner with a moving company that knows the area. Even better yet, if they have an office or representation in town. This will also make it easier to sort out any necessary details upon arrival.

Elliott Mobility’s people relocation services include temporary accommodation solutions, home finding solutions, finding suitable schools, tenancy and expense management, and more.

 

Q: What Do Our Other Clients Think of Their Service?

A: This is a very important factor to consider. Each moving company would insist that they are the best choice in Port Elizabeth, but are they willing to let their clients talk on their behalf? Ultimately, you rate a service provider’s standard by the satisfaction of their clients.

At Elliott Mobility, the happiness of our clients come first, and we are proud to share their feedback:

 

“Could not be more happy.” – Martin, July 2020

“Everything arrived in perfect condition.” – Guiomar, April 2020

“Should the occasion ever arise that we need to call on your services again, we will do so without any hesitation at all.” – Ernest, April 2020

 

You can find more feedback from our clients on our “Testimonial” page.

 

Q: Do They Provide the Necessary Packaging Materials?

A: When most people think about moving to a new house, they first think of cardboard boxes. Then about whether they need to start asking neighbours and shops for old boxes or spend money on buying a whole bunch of moving boxes only to discard them with the rubbish afterwards.

At Elliott Mobility, we take a much more responsible and sensible approach. Instead of creating unnecessary waste, we are the first in South Africa to introduce environmentally friendly Envirowise Boxes into our service offering. These boxes are entirely reusable and recyclable, and even have unique numbered seals to make sure that your goods are kept safe and organised.

 

Q: Do They Provide Packing Services?

A: Wrapping and packing all your belongings is usually the most time-consuming and the least enjoyable part of moving. Yet, not all moving companies in Port Elizabeth include this as part of their service offering. Instead, their service is limited only to furniture removals.

Our expert crews are trained in the art of the perfect pack and can even help with specialist items that need extra protection and wrapping. We take the necessary care to ensure your belongings arrive at their destination safe and sound.

 

Q: Do You Have Pets? How Will They Be Relocated?

A: Pets are part of our family and relocating can be very stressful for them. On top of that, the process can also be exceptionally stressful for you, as there are so many aspects to consider when relocating with a pet.

Not to worry. Whether you are moving across the country or abroad, Elliott Mobility’s specialist pet travel partners will take care of all your pet’s travel arrangements, including flights, import or export licenses, quarantine arrangements, custom-made travel containers, kennel services, and everything in between.

 

Q: How Will You Ensure the Safe Relocation of Your Valuable Fine Art and Antiques?

A: If you own any art pieces or antique furniture, you should also be aware that it requires special expertise to move these from one location to another. The slightest scrape, nick, or chip could ruin it. This is certainly not a job for a regular furniture removals company.

Elliott Mobility is a recognised member of ICEFAT (International Convention of Exhibition and Fine Art Transporters). Our team of trained experts know how to keep even the most delicate art pieces protected during every part of the moving process. From custom-built crates to specialised packaging, our bespoke services cater to your unique needs.

 

Q: Do You Have A Plan for The Transport of Your Vehicle(s)?

A: This is an aspect that is often overlooked. If you own investment vehicles, or simply more than one vehicle, how would you get it to your destination?

Elliott Mobility’s road freighting service is outsourced to our experienced vehicle carrier partners, who give personal attention to every car, ensuring a smooth and carefree process. Specialist vehicle carrier trucks make sure your vehicle gets to its destination quickly and safely.

 

Q: Do They Offer Storage Services?

A: What happens if your new place is not quite ready by the time you need to move? Or if all your belongings do not fit into your new home, but you also do not want to get rid of it? Instead of having to engage with yet another service provider, Elliott Mobility offers safe and secure short-, medium-, and long-term storage solutions. Whether you are looking to store a prized painting, precious carpets, fragile pot plants, a vintage car, or even a boat, we offer specialised storage options to suit your needs.

 

Q: Do They Provide Insurance, And What Is the Claim Processing Time?

A: Accidents happen, and you need to know you are sufficiently covered. Elliott Mobility provides all-risk insurance protection at an additional charge and, since the extent of our claims is so low, our insurers, Hollard, allow us to handle the settlement of our own claims without bureaucratic intervention, which means this is done speedily and efficiently.
