Here's some frequently asked questions we've encountered before. Can't find what you're looking for? Email us at

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.

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.

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.

A few weeks before moving into a new home, you should ensure all your connections, including internet, water, gas and electricity, are set up. If you need help connecting your home, our team at HOOD can help.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
