Are there any hidden fees/charges on moving day?
Definitely not, regardless of whether you opt for a fixed price or hourly rate the price you’re quoted during the booking process is what will stand on moving day.

When our office consultant provides your quotation, they will explain how the removal will be structured and estimated time frame the removalists should take for the removal process not including any travel time.
Will you disassemble and reassemble my furniture?

We stand by all our moving quotes no matter the time frame since provided.
How much notice do I need to book my moving date?
The more notice we have regarding your moving date the more likely you are to secure the date that best suits you. In some cases we will have availability to move you within a few days, but this all depends on our removalists / movers current schedule. In peak seasons, such as Christmas and Easter, it is best to book a minimum of 2-3 weeks prior to your moving date.
What happens once I have decided to accept your moving quote?
Simply call or email the office and we will confirm your moving date, pick-up and delivery address for you. You will be sent a confirmation email outlining all the specifics and relevant details of your move.

We organise a 10% booking deposit on country or interstate removals to secure the booking for both parties peace of mind. We accept payment via EFT, cash or credit card (Visa and Mastercard).
What are your invoicing terms?
We don’t invoice for future payment unless it is a company or alike. Payment for removalists services is to be made on completion of the move via methods listed above, unless agreed prior with management.
What if my moving date changes?
For a multitude of reasons sometimes settlement dates and/or entry dates are altered. Should this happen, simply call the office and we will work together to achieve the best result for your removals and a revised date with as little disruption to your family and work schedule.
