How to Build a Company of Furniture Removalists

In Australia, furniture removalists are essential service providers in the bustling transport and logistics market. People who have their own removal business must love communicating with people, shuffle from one workplace to another, and have a talent for thinking out of the box.

Furniture removalists in Australia follow the policies in OHS (Occupational Health Safety), driver fatigue management, and other government regulations that oversee the transport industry. The AFRA (Australian Furniture Removers Association) offers training to their members' staff. The course is a certificate level II and has 14 units of competency as of February 2011. Successful removal companies are the ones that have the right regulations and paperwork done while keeping their staff safe.

However, they do suggest that the costs of transport vehicles and its registration, maintenance, and running costs, costs of packing materials and equipment used during removals, OHS compliance, industry association membership costs, and overhead costs will give one an idea how much. Furniture removal businesses can earn about 5 to 15 per cent in profit.
