For furniture removalists around Australia the career is a very lucrative one, with many professional removalists earning more than $1,300 each week. You might think that this is a big sum of money for someone who just transports boxes from A to B, but a removalist is actually responsible for a lot more than just moving other people’s belongings! Registration, licensing, education and training is required for someone to work in this industry, because he or she will be relied on to assist commercial and domestic customers in the following ways.
Removalists Will Take Care of Heavy Lifting Jobs
You could put your back out or inflict an injury on yourself if you attempt to move belongings without professional help. A trained removalist will have undergone some level of training that involves lifting heavy items and loading them onto trucks. This will prepare them for heavy lifting jobs and will ensure that health and safety standards are met when dismantling, assembling and transporting items. Once items have been lifted onto the truck, they will be noted down on the inventory list and later, checked for wear and tear.
Removalists Will Move, Pack and Label Items
When everything is concealed inside boxes, it can be difficult to determine what’s inside and how it should be handled, unless the boxes are labelled that is. The removalists will begin the moving process by inspecting the property and its contents, so that he or she can make a note of what needs to be moved and how it will be packaged. Pads and packing material will be inserted inside boxes to protect fragile items or pieces of furniture that are prone to dents and scratches. Each item will have unique packing requirements and this will be taken into account by the person or persons assisting with the move, so you can rest assured that everything will be managed professionally.
Removalists Will Use Specialist Equipment for Loading and Unloading
Sometimes, equipment must be used to load and unload heavy items. This is where trolleys, forklifts, lifting hooks and straps will come in handy. A furniture removal specialist will know how to use this equipment properly for safety purposes. All businesses that specialise in moving and delivering items for commercial and domestic customers will restrain loads with care through utilising the best procedures made available to them.
