  • Moving East and Need a Removalist

    Ok guys - so here's the deal ..... I am finailly making the big move - packing up home and kids (and dog) and moving to the Sunshine Coast.

    What I was wondering is - has anyone here ever done a big move like this and if so who did you use to cart all your shit from one state to another.

    Also looking for BEWARE signs for those companies you wouldn't use .

    Cheers

    Yep, Allied Pickford guy just left and my house is now full of boxes. They're coming in the morning to pick up all the boxes

    I used AP to come over from Melbourne a few years ago too. No complaints. I got a few quotes this time and they were all about the same (bloody expensive) so I went with the one who felt the most professional.

      I used Kents MEL - PER and PER - MEL. No real complaints - one box delivered upside down and the Melbourne office got a bit mixed up with charging me storage fees which was soon sorted out. They bought the shipping container to my place in Perth and that's what arrived here in Melbourne so no repacking/handling. They also crated two of my bikes and moved them too.

        Keen Bros moved all my stuff from Perth to Canberra 18 months ago - no complaints here.

        I can't comment on the cost as I didn't pay or it.

          Moved from O/S to Melb. Melb -> Canberra -> Syd -> Per -> Canberra -> Brisbane -> Canberra -> Perth (and a few smaller moves in there as well). That's with kids, animals etc. Of all the movers I've used, Allied Pickfords were the best. Wouldn't go past them again.

            Moved from Perth to Brisbane. Used KT Moller for the shit, and Bikesonly.com.au for the bike.

              We used 1StopMoving to go between Perth & Busselton and then Busselton & Knx and definately didn't have any complaints. They were very reasonably priced and even helped us unpack things.

                    ^^
                    I have moved heaps - as a kid, and a few times within WA and I love it .....I get itchy feet if I dont move house every now and then

                    this is a bit diffeent and I have so many mixed emotions about it BUT I know I have to do it

                    Thanks for the suggestions guys - for some reason Allied Pickford is in my memory bank from when I was younger. Time to get some quotes and get this road on the show! (House is getting valued today so its all go go go from here on in)
