Purpose

For purpose of providing a definition, the Australian Furniture Removers Association in September 2002, ratified a definition for the term “Normal Access”. Since the term “Normal” can mean different things to different people, it was decided the term “normal access” should be replaced by the term “Standard Access”. It is to be applied when consignments are going to/from sites unseen and is to make the client aware of what (in terms of access) is included in the removal cost.

Over the distance, the rise or fall shall not exceed 1.5 metres (or approximately eye level) with a gradient of not more than one-in-five (1 in 5); and

The point of collection or placement within the building shall not exceed twenty-five metres from allocated building entry point.
