What does removalist work in Australia consist of?
As the name implies, the job is basically to make removals. The first thing is to check with the client the furniture that you want to transport. If there is large furniture, it must be disassembled and packed in pieces to avoid possible damage during the journey. In this way they are loaded into the vehicle and taken to the destination location provided by the customer. Once in the new address, all the furniture is unloaded and placed mounted where the client asks.
It is usually work in pairs and the normal thing at the beginning is to start as offsiders. The offsiders is the driver's companion that helps transport furniture from the old to the new home. The normal thing is that at the beginning the driver, who has more experience, gives you some advice to move the furniture avoiding any possible risk.
The truth is that it is a fairly physical job so it is convenient to be fit enough to be able to endure a whole day moving furniture from one place to another. Of course, salaries are around $ 18 - $ 20 AUD per hour, which is not bad.
