How much notice do you need?
The busiest times for all moving companies coincide with school holidays and the summer months especially from November to March. The simple answer? Allow as much time as possible. Interstate removals and removals to New Zealand and the UK will obviously take longer to organise than container removals and furniture removals in Perth.
If you are lucky enough to have some flexibility in your delivery dates let us know as we will need to schedule packing, removalists, vehicles, containers and shipping. See our moving checklist for handy information.
Do you deliver Australia-wide?
Yes. We can deliver to any state in Australia.
How much does it cost to move interstate?
Pricing for interstate moving is based on two main factors; where it is going from and to, along with the volume of goods being sent. Other factors which affect the pricing are: access conditions, dates and the extent of service. Pricing starts from $220.00 for moving a singular item depot to depot up to many thousands of dollars for large houseloads.
How do you move interstate on a budget?
To move as cheaply as possible the key is to ensure you only take what you will use and want to keep. Packing cartons yourselves will save a lot of work for the removalist and therefore be cheaper. But do ensure you pack into strong suitable cartons that are stackable so they can be safely transported. Large items that take up considerable space, such as wardrobes, are very expensive to move. Sometimes more costly than the items value. If you are moving on a budget, make sure you limit the large items. When moving a small amount, it will increase the transit time taken. This is a similar process to backloading, a handful of clients share the cost of getting goods transported.
How long does it take to move interstate?
Transit times can vary pending locations. An interstate move across the country can sometimes be less than a week. Although more commonly 2 – 4 weeks. The more goods you are sending the quicker the service will generally be. One house load for example in a container can be sent straight away. Though when sending a small amount, we need to consolidate freight, this way each client pays the portion of cost the use in the container/truck. This takes time and logistical planning to be both cost and time efficient.
Can you move single items, such as a piano or pool table?
Yes. No job is too big or small. Furniture storage is also available for these items.
Do you move vehicles?
Yes. We offer interstate and international removal of cars. No personal items are able to be moved inside the vehicle so please ensure that they are packed up and included with the removal.
Can my pets come too?
Yes. When moving pets overseas regulations between countries vary extensively and your moving consultant will work through this with you.
How do I pack my flat screen TV?
If you still have the box the television originally came in you can use this. We supply cartons for televisions and can pack them for you if needed.
Can I pack my own boxes?
Yes. We can provide you with moving-grade boxes or give you advice if you prefer to have everything under your control. However, be aware that breakages in owner-packed boxes are not covered by insurance. Cartons can be purchased and delivered direct to your home.

Under Australian law, removal companies do not have to carry insurance. Fully comprehensive insurance for all consignments although we do have public liability insurance, third party property and motor vehicle insurance, and Carriers Legal Liability Insurance for our protection. This insurance does not cover your goods against accidental damage while in transit.
