Moving FAQs, removal questions, small move questions

Below are a few of the questions that we often get asked. If you have a question that isn’t answered on this page, feel free to give us a call on 03 9380 6444 or email hq@littleredtrucks.com.au

Only moving a little?

Little Red Trucks is your answer. We specialise in these quick little moves so can almost always fit you in, even at the very last minute. We’re all about being the cheapest, quickest and easiest option for professional small moves in Melbourne.

Moving a lot?

Not a problem. Our trucks are big enough to move a 2-bedroom home and come stocked with professional trolleys, straps, blankets and tool kits to ensure your move is as quick and as safe as humanly possible.

Can I ride in the truck?

You sure can. Our trucks have room for three.

Can I help out?

Yes you can. If you want to save even more time and money you’re more than welcome to help our men load and unload your Little Red Truck.

How long will my move take?

There is no hard and fast answer to this question as each move is different. It depends on how much you’re moving, how many men you hire, the access at each address, traffic and so on. However, we generally move a Little Red Trucks-worth over a 5 to 10km distance in 2 to 3 hours and guarantee that we’ll do everything in our power to make things as quick and painless as possible.

Can I move my stuff outside of normal business hours?

As long as we have adequate notice we can usually organise moves out-of-hours on most days of the week. Additional charges do apply, however, so give our office a call and we can see what we can do.

What’s the deal with insurance?

Removalists are not required to have insurance to operate and most don’t bother. Little Red Trucks, on the other hand, takes great pride in offering our customers the most complete cover we can in the unlikely event of an accident. For your peace of mind we carry transit insurance and public liability insurance. We can also offer a repair service in the event of accidents caused by us. Further information on these policies is available through our Terms & Guarantee or on written request. If you have any further reservations in regards to the safety of your goods we strongly recommend you take out an individual policy customized to your needs through our friends at removalsinsurance.com.au as we cannot legally do this on your behalf. It’s dead easy to do and doesn’t cost as much as you’d think!

How can I pay?

We accept payment by cash and selected credit cards at the end of every job.

Is there anything you won’t move?

Unfortunately there are some specialist items we cannot help you with, such as pianos, pool tables or safes. We can recommend some excellent specialists in these areas though.

Can I work for you?

Quite possibly! Have a look here and see if we have any positions available. If not, throw your resume to us anyway and we’ll be in touch if anything suitable comes up!
