Frequently asked questions

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.

Yes, all of our prices are GST inclusive.

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.

It is preferred if you or your representative to be present at the pickup and drop off.

If your booking is a premium service, the company will be able to provide exact timing. If your booking is a shared option, then your schedule will be a window between two to seven hours on the move day.

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.

It depends on your volume and which carrier we are using for your move. Some companies can delay the delivery by a day for an extra fee, but others may not be able to if the truck is only passing by your address and must continue driving. 

If you need to change the delivery or pick up date, please advise the removalist as early as possible. They can sometimes accommodate changes and reschedule but this has a few variables. 

We encourage bookings ASAP, and this will hold the price, reserve the space, and give you peace of mind. This can also mean you avoid any future price rise.

Unpack your pantry like a pro
My main focus after a move is unpacking the kitchen and bedrooms, purely because I want to eat a decent meal and sleep in a bed with clean sheets, quite simple. As an avid organiser, unpacking the pantry gives me great pleasure, however I know this task for some may just be a case of getting all items on the shelves quickly and close the door. The pantry gets accessed by all members of the family multiple times a day so having coherent and well thought out shelving is actually quite beneficial.
