Frequently asked questions

The final payment must be paid five days before the nominated pickup date.

Each company has differing policies about notification before the pickup and delivery. Some companies can provide a time window on booking, others provide this the day before, while others will provide notice within an hour of their arrival. 

The packing service is not included in our standard pricing. Please check with our support team to get a quotation.

If you change your list of items or space required a week before your move, we can usually adjust the price accordingly. In some circumstances this won’t be possible depending on the booking volume and amount of change and notice provided.

A cubic metre is 1m x 1m x 1m. A full-sized container size is 38m3. 

Truck sizes vary from 20m3 to 70m3 and sometimes 100m3.

If you have the original TV box, please use it. You can also purchase TV storage/removal boxes from storage centres. If you don’t have a box and can’t source one, the removalist will use heavy-duty blankets to protect the TV.

When quoting on your job, we provide the name and reviews of the company that matches your inquiry. Although we vet every company on our system, we encourage you to do your own due dilligence on the company you choose.

We only work with experienced and reputable moving companies and its in their best interests to pack accurately in the trucks for two main reasons:

  1. It maximizes the space available.
  2. A tight well-loaded vehicle ensures less movement and motion on the road/rail. 

Dismantling and assembling the furniture are not included in our standard pricing but can easily be added to your moving service, just ask.

Moving interstate? Do it on the lean and save, save, save!
You have endured the draining experience of buying a new home and selling the old one, plus all the paper work involved in that process. But now its time for the big move! Moving house in Australia is just as much of a lengthy, stressful and expensive ordeal, especially when relocating interstate.
