According to the Holmes Rahe stress scale for adults “change of residence” is considered a stressful activity and is assigned number 20 in the social readjustment rating schedule. However, Removals should be just as pleasant experience as any other changes in your life, which is why JHB Removals are here to help.

Always ensure you send your Moving Requirements well in advance. All Removal Companies Requires an Inventory list to quote you accurately.

One excellent way to reduce stress during a move is to ensure you have enough time to start working on moving tasks and packing. The last thing you need is to be unprepared when the removal team arrives.

The sooner you provide the detailed list the easier it is to Budget and plan for your removal. Removal Companies cannot give ballpark figures. Quotes are based specifically on your removal requirements.It is imperative that you plan on your preferred removal date to avoid disappointment when you wait too long. Removals are subject to availability by the time you confirm your booking.

If you plan, it gives you ample time to ensure you have packed all your goods and have decluttered your household. By the time you are ready to move almost all your stresses would have dissipated by then. Create a Moving task list, write down all the tasks you must finish, and tick them off one by one.

​WHAT is the difference between goods in transit and all risk insurance? 

Firstly, it is a good idea to try and move on a weekday. Most people book in a weekend removal slot, as they want to minimise time off work. This is understandable, but if you have any holidays left and you can take a day off, it is wise to do so. Removal costs often increase significantly for a weekend service. If you are self-employed and you will miss out on money by taking the day off, try and calculate whether it will be more expensive to move on the weekend or rather juggle your work around.

      Peak seasons such as school holidays can also be more expensive.

Make sure you Declutter your home, a cluttered home will make you anxious and can cause a lot of stress during a move. One great benefit of Declutter and tossing unwanted items is the fact that it will save you costs of removals when you have fewer items. Donate the old stuff you have not used in the last 3 months.

How to reduce stress during household removals 

JHB Furniture removals cost of Relocation

how extra volume effects the cost of your removal 

Every household has different Furniture removal requirements.

With Jhb Removals we are dedicated to bring you a Tailor made quote that suits your budget need.

It is important that we know the total volume of your goods so that we can ensure that we allocate the right size Truck or space in the Truck for your Removal.

It is imperative that you ensure that your inventory is accurate and Inventory changes needs to be disclosed and Communicated to the Booking Consultant well in advance to ensure space has been reserved for extra items.

Any additional Volume will be charged for upon upliftment. If there is not enough space allocated for the extra volume the removal team may refuse upliftment and will charge separately for a new load on a new Booking. 

Extra Volume will and can effect your removal cost if you have not planned and packed accordingly. The surcharge for these items are calculated according to the total volume of goods. The extra space allocation on the truck that needs to be reserved. It includes the time and labour of packing these items. 

​Extra volume poses a big challenge for our scheduling and Logistics department, especially when Load adjustments are done last minute. The teams have to spend longer hours at the loading point. Once done they have to return to the depot and repack these items in a bigger truck especially for long distance moves. They have to re-quote the entire move and sometimes have to bump off another client from the Removal Truck to secure the goods of the first client. This causes a domino effect on the Person booked after you and causes delays in collection times of the next person.

Long Distance Booking - Share Loads - We kindly ask all our long distance clients to be flexible with collection/delivery dates as a result of you being part of a shared load. This means that there are numerous other collections and deliveries that need to be scheduled and coordinated.
Please do take note that with Shared Loads it's difficult to give exact times. If a client is booked before yours and they delay the removal it does cause a domino effect towards the next removal.

Our teams are on route 24/7 and Removals are conducted during weekdays and weekends. We Load off in different suburbs along the route and that Schedule lies with the Operations Manager.

​Scheduling is dependent on the multiple addresses, we would like our trucks to spend as little time a possible in the traffic and we also schedule the loads according to areas. We don't want to load in Centurion, then Alberton and then have to go back to Centurion. 
Scheduling is coordinated to avoid rush hour traffic times  
Flexibility from our clients is required to accommodate the schedule, variations can happen
​The risk of large trucks running into traffic delays and loading/offloading accessibility challenges are more.

Complexes and cities are one of our biggest challenges and that's why we ask our clients to please detail the accessibility at both addresses so we can understand our time challenges for more accurate scheduling

The starting point for your Furniture Removals Quote begins with your incoming enquiry made on our website.

After we receive your enquiry then a friendly removal consultant will be specifically allocated to you and who will ensure that all your relevant information is collected so we can generate your free removal quotation.  

The starting point is an accurate inventory to calculate the following in order to provide you with an accurate quote. Please note we don't always religiously follow these steps in accordance but it helps us to ensure we provide the best service possible. We start by generating an express quote as a starting point, and if you are happy to proceed we then send you a formal quote which has the below mentioned should you wish to opt-in for the service available to you. 

Stage 1:

This Inventory form will help you calculate the total volume (ft³) of the household goods you want to move. With this Inventory, we need to make sure we allocate the right size truck, staff and time that it requires to complete your furniture removal efficiently!

Stage 2: 

We need to know what the Accessibility issues is like. Are there stairs, lifts, long carry's (over 30m), truck weight or height restrictions? With most Complexes across Gauteng, they have their own set of rules and will advise you at the gate or Security on what size Vehicle is allowed. This is crucial information to us because we need to ensure we book a smaller shuttle vehicle to move the Furniture from a bigger truck into a smaller Vehicle so we can gain access to the complex if the distance from the gate to premises is more than 30 Meters. This can increase your removal cost. 

Stage 3:

​We need to know your Packaging Requirements. Do you want us to pack and supply your Boxes? Do you need specialized wrapping for your Appliances and Furniture items? Do you need Crating done for a large item such as paintings, Mirrors or even a piano? All if these items help us to tailor-make your quoting needs to your requirements. 

Stage 4: 

When is your preferred removal date? Do you need a Long distance removal or Local? 

Will you need a dedicated Truck do you want to be part of a Shared load basis for Long distance.

Stage 5:  

Do you need insurance taken out on your Furniture items during transit? This has a big effect on your quoting Preference. Once you take out insurance we need to do a full pack and wrap for the insurance to take effect. We also need a detailed list of items with their Value in order to quote you accurately.

Stage 6: 

​​If more time is required to complete the job, expect higher service costs. Movers will have to disassemble any furniture that doesn’t fit through the doors and will then assemble it at the new address. If you haven’t prepared the heavier items for fast and easy dismantling, this will slow down the movers and time duration of the service will result in higher costs.
Most house removal costs are formed on an hourly basis.

Once we have received all these information it is easier to quote you comprehensively. In most cased we send out a Quick express quote based on your needs and if you have any extra preferences we quote accordingly to the stages above.
