How do I choose a removalist?
It can be difficult to know which removalist to choose. It’s a great idea to ask for referrals or talk to real estate agents or solicitors where the removalist is based. Also, check that the removalist is an Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA) member. To become an AFRA member, an organisation must undergo a rigorous application process, guaranteeing to operate at certain high service standards, and adhering to strict guidelines, policies, and a code of conduct. For more information, feel free to call AFRA directly on 1800 671 806.
