If you are moving to Brisbane from the UK in the coming months, make the move simpler by using a professional removals company like Schepens. We have been performing furniture removals to Brisbane for decades and now the logistics of this journey well. Our family-owned company was established more than 100 years ago and has extensive knowledge when it comes to international removals.
Every removal is performed by removers trained to British Association of Removers (BAR) standards. Our adherence to these strict standards helps to ensure the safety and security of your cargo. It also helps us to provide a world-class service that is reliable and professional.
In this post, we will take a closer look at the removals process used by Schepens. We will also explain why Schepens is the #1 furniture moving firm from the UK to Brisbane.
The Schepens furniture removals process
Since our company was established over 100 years ago, we have continually improved our process for international removals. The end result is a strict process that has a strong focus on the safety, reliability, security and efficiency of removals.
We use the standards set out by the British Association of Removers as the basis for all removals. Training our removers to these standards helps us to ensure every staff member has the right knowledge and skills to perform removals professionally.
All of our removers are extensively trained before being allowed into the field. We show them how to prepare fragile items, safely move heavy items, how to correctly load a removals truck and much more. This high standard of training makes our removers the best in the business! Our international removals to Brisbane consist of the following steps:
Initial client meeting and quotation
The removals process begins with a meeting between the client and one of our move coordinators. For smaller removals, this meeting can often be carried out over the phone. Larger removals may require a face-to-face meeting so the move coordinator can inspect your cargo. The questions asked at this meeting usually include:
- When would you like to schedule your furniture removal to Brisbane?
- What is the destination address and pick up address?
- Are there any access issues which will make removing or delivering the furniture more difficult?
- Do you have any furniture that is extremely fragile, heavy or difficult to move?
- If you have some valuable items, would you like a security guard to be present during the removal?
- Would you like to use the Schepens professional packing service?
- Would you like to use the Schepens storage service?
- Would you like a dedicated container or a shared container?
- Which insurance plan would you like to use for your cargo?
If you have any pieces that are very fragile, our move coordinator may ask to inspect them so they understand if any additional precautions need to be taking during the move.
After the move coordinator has gathered all of the necessary information, they will create a highly detailed quote. This quote will clearly identify the cargo being moved, the pickup and destination locations, the delivery window, pickup date and total price. Our price represents a final door-to-door figure — unlike many other international removals companies, there are no hidden costs when you choose Schepens! Our quotes are also 100% free and completely obligation-free.
Using the Schepens professional packing service
We offer all clients an optional professional packing service for international removals to Australia. When you use this service, our experienced removers will pack your smaller items into boxes, including cutlery and crockery. This service can save you many hours and ensures your smaller possessions are correctly packed for an international removal.
Because our removers understand the stresses that cargo may experience during an international removal, they know how to correctly prepare fragile items. If you choose to use this server, Schepens will supply packing boxes, packing paper, packing tape and other consumables.
Our furniture packing process
Over the years, we have developed some strict protocols for preparing and packing furniture for international removals. By having all removers follow these protocols, we can ensure your cargo is adequately protected and packed for your international removal to Brisbane. Our protocols also ensure the safety of our staff and security of your possessions. Some of the steps we take to protect your furniture include:
- Pieces of furniture made from soft timbers are covered with corrugated cardboard or thick layers of plastic to protect it from scratches.
- Some fragile pieces of furniture are covered with bubble wrap and layers of cardboard to protect it during the journey.
- Some pieces of furniture may be partially disassembled if it improves the safety or efficiency of the removal
- Upholstered surfaces may be covered moving blankets or plastic to protect them from dust or moisture
- The process is overseen by your move coordinator. They will ensure all cargo is adequately prepared and loaded correctly.
