Moving day

While your goods are being packed in your residence, ask our packers to place first needs such as face cloths, change of clothes, cutlery etc. in separate, well-marked cartons.

Our employees are well trained in dealing with children. However, a small toy or a book usually prevents your constant supervision of them.

Light, easily prepared meals are recommended on moving day.

Moving day is sometimes confusing for your family, however you will find that a calm, systematic approach together with the assistance of our people will usually avoid frayed nerves.

Please ensure that all luggage and travel documents needed for travelling are isolated in order to avoid being included with your household goods.

The driver of our vehicle is responsible for the supervision of your removal. If you have any suggestions, or observations, please direct these to him.

You will be asked to sign a physical inventory of your goods as a receipt, one copy of which will be left with you. Please read this carefully and please do not hesitate to request clarification on any point from our driver.

They will deliver your effects into the new residence.

They will unpack and set-up your household goods and furniture in your new residence.

They will remove all containers and packing materials when the job has been completed.

When your shipment arrives, please check each item as it is brought into your residence against your copy of the inventory. If something is missing or damaged, be sure that the driver notes these comments on the inventory list. After the unloading has been completed you will be asked to sign the inventory list. Your signature certifies that all your goods arrived in the same condition they were loaded with the exception of any notations as described above.

Should it become impractical to unpack all of your effects on the first call owing to lack of space, for example, contact the Destination Agent, who will make the necessary arrangements for the satisfactory completion of your move. There may be an additional fee.

Should there be any basis for claim, it is necessary to submit a Statement of Claim obtainable from your Destination Agent. No action can be taken until such time as this form is completed and the quicker you file the claim the quicker the settlement can be made.
