Hood's service is outstanding, and it has exceeded my expectations in every way. I would highly recommend your company to my family and friends. I recently had my NBN, Electricity and Removalist service done and I couldn't be happier with how fast and easy it is.
Tommy was a great help to organise connection to electricity and internet not quite completed but he is going to contact me again to finish, it was nice to have someone willing to follow through and has a very pleasant manner, very professional, knowledgeable and clear to understand
Moving house is stressful, so when we had a hiccup in our electricity/gas connection (100% our fault) I called Hood with trepidation to explain what we had done. Within a few minutes we had a friendly interaction, a resolution and seamless connection on moving day. Thank you Hood, for terrific service and for supporting Mission Australia
The customer service provided by Warren was top notch. They were incredibly patient with my many questions and explained the entire process beautifully. I am writing this 2 hours after the call so I cannot speak on the results of the product offered, but the quality of the call experience was great!

How do I find a good removalist?
Finding a trusted removalist for your move entails shopping around and checking reviews and insurance rules for various home moving companies.
You should also review the company's website and read its background history, the kind of moving services provided, rates, etc. Through this, you'll be able to find a home moving company with high customer satisfaction that you feel you can put your trust in.
How much does it cost to use a removalist?
The cost of hiring removalists will differ from company to company and where you're moving home. Generally, the price for local moves will be calculated based on how many hours it takes to move. Interstate moves are calculated by how much space your items and furniture take on your moving truck.
Should I move with a removalist or do it myself?
The answer will depend on your physical abilities, transport and how many items you need to move. If you're moving out of a share house or family home, it can be doable by yourself. But moving an entire home and various large pieces of furniture can become more challenging without the help of professional movers.
What do I have to do before I move into my new home?
What is removals insurance?
All home moving companies will have their own protection rules and insurance in place, but these won't automatically extend to customers in most cases. But it is recommended that you take out removalists insurance as this can cover any accidental loss or damage throughout your move.
What should you not pack when moving?
It's important to remember that home moving services won't include all your home items. While the specific articles will change between home moving companies, a general outline of belongings, not included when booking movers online, will consist of;
- Flammables and explosives such as turpentine, Ammonia or Fertiliser
- Paint or varnish
- Car batteries
- Perishables. Try your best to eat everything from your fridge before move day.
- Important documents and items such as house keys, agreements, birth certificates, etc.
- Valuable items such as jewellery
- The box of things for the first few weeks in your new home
What if the date of my relocation changes after booking the movers?
Most home moving companies are flexible when it comes to moving dates. Your move-in day may probably change due to external factors. For this reason, most home moving services offer flexible dates, pickup and drop-off locations and truck sizes. But they may charge an additional fee if these changes aren't made 48 hours in advance.
I am having issues relocating my pet. Can you help with that?
It's important to check each company's home moving services, as some companies will happily bring your pets carrier or cage with them in their truck. If this is a service you need, double-check with your chosen home moving company.
Do you also offer relocation of single items like a big piece of furniture or electronic item?
Home moving companies will regularly move single large items. Suppose it is an abnormally large object like a piano, for example. In that case, you should let the company know its dimensions beforehand to help distinguish if it can be transported safely with them.
Can you help me to choose the proper size of the truck?
It is recommended to use 4T trucks for houses with one or two-bedroom with a maximum of two people. For two or three-bedroom houses, we recommend the 8T truck. Finally, for homes with bigger three-bedrooms or extra rooms like a study, storage room etc., it's best to opt for 10T trucks.
