There will be two men on the flatbed truck. Please note that any item too heavy to be easily carried and loaded by two men will not be moved.
If you select the large closed truck option, there will be 3,4,5 or 6 men depending on the size of the move and the other moves scheduled for that day.
Please let your booking coordinators know if any item is particularly heavy and requires more than 2 men to easily carry and load it onto the truck.
-Be respectful and polite.
-Make sure furniture is ready to be moved and boxes are packed, sealed and ready before the team arrives.
-Make sure things are well organised and boxes are numbered so everything can be quickly and seamlessly moved onto the truck.
-Arrange for kids and pets to go to a relative or day care or keep them out of the way so they don't get stepped on.
-Treat the men to cool drinks and light snacks- moving is hard work!
-Give them a tip if you feel they have delivered excellent service.
-Show consideration to the next customer and help to make things progress as quickly as possible so the guys can be on time for the next customer.
-Don't ask them to do anything dangerous that may result in injury or damage.

-Don't ask them to remove safety gear, such as shoes.
-Don't ask them to rearrange furniture in different configurations, if you did not specifically request this at least 48 hours before your move- the guys have another move to get to.
