Misc. infomation 29

Better security, the convenience of being able to access your goods, and the economy of storing close to your address together with lower costs, has resulted in a dramatic increase in “Self Storages” over recent years. They simply provide a better alternative.We move, they store – we are each experts at what we do.

We will refer you to the closest facility that has adequate security and good service standards, please see our self storage directory.

Our system will provide you with an arrival time between one time and another time.

If you need a phone call 30 minutes before, you’ll need to give us a call to arrange this.

Yes, we operate 7 days/nights a week on every day of the year except Good Friday, ANZAC day and Christmas Day.

No. There are no charges for changing the move date at any time.

Please call us on 1300 882 440 as soon as you know your new move date, so that we may cancel your old booking.

Payment will be taken at the completion of your move.

Our operators all have portable eftpos facilities on the day. There is a small surcharge on credit cards.

On the day 11

We understand the dilemma of not having an “exact” arrival time. Where you need to meet us at an address that you would not normally be at i.e. when moving from a self storage, we can organize to call you up to 30 minutes before the move.

You do need to advise our Sale Centre that you require this service.

We used to tell customers that we would arrive at (say) 8 a.m. At 2 minutes past 8 a.m. many customers rang, concerned that we may not arrive (we have NEVER failed to do a job). We will not promise anything we can not deliver.

We give you two times, between which we estimate we will arrive. 87% of the time we arrive near the first time but we cannot estimate the exact time the previous job will end.

Our trucks are the largest rigid body trucks that we can use in suburban streets. 90% of moves we can complete in one trip, however with special circumstances (property settlements) or if moving more than 20 minutes drive time from the pick-up address and the load exceeds a single load, we will do two trips or send a second truck.We do operate a fleet of large furniture pan tecs, so this is not usually a problem.

Of course! We strongly believe you should be free to control your cost.

With MiniMovers, the more you do, the less we do, the less your move will cost. You can take this to any extreme. It’s your choice if you wish to help or not.

Our moving crews are experienced and will get in and move you as quickly and carefully as possible, but ultimately they can only deal with whatever you give them. If moving house (remember we can handle any size move) then most customers pack themselves and some have extra helpers. Extra advice on how to plan your move can be found at our Moving Hints page.

The best way to ensure a fast, efficient move is to make sure you are organised and as ready as possible when we arrive – all loose items packed into boxes and accesses clear.

You can further control the time the move takes by helping out as much or as little as you like – the more you do, the less time your move will take and consequently the more $ you will save. Packing boxes correctly can make a big difference too, so if you are packing yourself, please check our hints on how to pack the perfect box.

As a result, the quote you get for the small truck is your quote for this special type of move.

We specialise in moving locally, this can be anywhere up to 4 or 5 hours out of town.

No, ‘MiniMovers’ means we move short distances. We have both small trucks and very big trucks for the largest of home or office moves.

We can supply a professional packer (or a team for large moves) to pack your belongings into boxes safely and securely.Whatever the MiniMovers packer packs, is also covered by the Guarantee, as long as we are moving it.

Once again, you have the total freedom, and may want to pack your personal items and have MiniMovers pack your breakables only- the choice is yours.

Payment 6

Payment will be taken at the completion of your move.

Our operators all have portable eftpos facilities on the day. There is a small surcharge on credit cards.

Our charge is based on the time it actually takes to get from the charging depot to your address, and the return trip is estimated based on distance and the time of day- all estimates are realistic.

Also, the travel times are listed separately on your invoice, so we are upfront about our charges.

Fair Charging – MiniMovers services are charged to and from the most suitable depot for your move – usually between your pick up and drop off addresses.

This is because we believe in paying our people fairly for the time they work whilst keeping your costs to a minimum.

Fridays and Saturdays are very busy moving days. As an incentive to move mid-week we have lower rates Monday to Thursdays.

We charge no minimum fee.  We only charge in 15 minute lots.
