To determine the cost of your Whangarei removals job we simply need to work out what resources are required and how long the move will take. It may be the case that our standard two-man crew is sufficient, or that other resources are needed. Sometimes a small removals job can be done with one removalist, thereby saving you money.
Due to our comprehensive experience, we can fairly closely determine what is required after having a good chat with you. In the case of complex moves we will come out and have a look at how the issues can best be resolved.
Your best first action is to give us a call for a friendly chat.

What do you get for your money?
Most people looking to move will ask removalists for an hourly rate. That is an okay starting point but doesn’t tell the full story. You will find that there are some relatively ‘cheap’ removalists, some moderately mid-range in price and some with high rates.
How much work is done in an hour?
There are standards in the removals industry that enable us to work out how long jobs might take. The number of stairs, the distance to parking, the weather, the goods involved, the level of care required with individual items. For instance, a piano or an antique Grandfather clock requires more care than a garden wheelbarrow.
To be safe, our vehicles always have internal carpeted rails to prevent furniture damage as the truck body moves during transit. We use both ramps and hydraulic lifters in order to get both efficiency and safety when required. The trolleys we use are specialised for use with different loads and spaces: boxes through to pianos. Our vehicles always have more than enough large furniture pads to wrap your furniture for it’s protection.
Importantly, everything is clean.
In spite of industry standards there are still great variations in how long different companies take to do a job. In other words, one company may have low hourly rates but be slow and inexperienced, another fast and rough. At relax&move we pride ourselves in completing jobs with the best balance of haste along with the appropriate level of care for your furniture – to give you the best value move.

Call out fee
We don’t have a call out fee as such but charge from base to base. Around Whangarei this is usually about half an hour at the rate of the resources booked (e.g. two removalists and a removals truck). This fee applies to all the moves in the Whangarei region.
Outside of the Whangarei removals area we simply charge from base to base. If we are doing long distance moves we may be able to negotiate the travel component of the removals fee.
Sometimes we have promotions that apply to specific areas. For instance, we may only charge for half the travel costs, or none at all. Give us a call to have a chat about your specific needs.
