Although every country in the world probably has removal companies, few of those companies have to make removals of the same distances as the Australian removal companies. Moving Interstate in Australia can mean moves of thousands of miles where as some removal companies in other countries may barely move more than a couple of hundred miles. With the larger distances involved there are of course more potential chances for something to go wrong and so these Australian companies have to be able to identify and prepare for as many of those potential problems as possible.
It is probably impossible to foresee all the problems a move of those distances could exist but the more experience a company has in those types o move, the more understanding they have a so are often better prepared for many of the problems than less experienced companies may be. Therefore, if you are looking to hire an Australian Instate removal company, you should ensure the one you hire has experience.
There may always be a problem though that could not be anticipated and it is for that reason that insurance exists and ensure you buy adequate insurance for all your belongings which are to be moved. Some of the items to be moved may have more sentimental value than actual monetary value and so that is why it makes no sense to try and penny pinch on removals or the insurance for those removals as you never know what may be lost or damaged should a unseen problem arise somewhere along the very long route.
Another problem with a relocation of these distances is that sometimes the person actually moving ahs a problem along the way. Perhaps their car breaks down and there are very many stretches of open road and that could mean that you do not make it to your new home in time to meet the truck. Although the truck may wait a couple of hours for you and make an additional charge for doing so, it will not wait forever and so at some point it will deposit your belongings at the nearest storage facility which you will have to pay for before the belongings will be released. Of course if this does happen you will also have to hire another truck to move them from the storage facility to your home, an added expense.
Given the added expenses you may have to pay for and the gas you would have to buy anyway, some people opt to have their cars transported and then use public transport to get to their new homes. Just like the trucks that will be doing your removals public transport will usually have back-up plans for any problems, unlike you and so are probably better equipped to turn up on time.
Regardless of whether or not you drive or take public transport, still ensure the driver, when he picks up from your old home, has the correct address for your new home, ask what route he is taking and ask him again what time he estimates to be at the ultimate destination.
