In an ideal world, when you move home, the removals company packs up your furniture, moves it to your new home and then unpacks it all once you get there. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes the dates don’t sync up – maybe you haven’t taken transfer of the new home yet. Maybe your new home is still in the process of being built. Maybe you are staying with friends or family until you find a place of your own. Either way, you have to store your furniture somewhere in the meantime.

So, the question is: Can removal companies store your furniture for you? Who? And how much will it be? That’s when you look to the most reliable
removal companies in Johannesburg.

Yes. SA law says that movers are responsible for your goods from the moment they pick them up at your current premises to the moment you sign off on their delivery at the new one. Not only that, but the Consumer Protection Act (CPA) says that the mover is directly responsible, meaning if something is damaged, you don’t even have to deal with an insurer, you deal directly with the mover.

​At reputable moving companies like JHB Removals, for example, we not only take every precaution to safeguard your precious belongings (secure wrapping & protective packaging, with extra care and special treatment), but we also take full responsibility for your goods and offer ideal peace-of-mind movers’ insurance.
