Recommendations for interstate removalists for a move from Canberra?

By ramblingted 19 July 2011 25

We are relocating and need to get a household full of stuff to Melbourne in a few months time.  Does anyone have any recommendations for good removalists?

(I realise that there is a certain counter intuitive quality to the question, in that those that have made a similar move are probably not reading RiotAct anymore, but if you’ve recently packed Gran off interstate and have something to contribute please feel free!)

What’s Your opinion?

We used Croker Removals Pty Ltd for our Canberra to Melbourne move and have nothing but praise for their work – nothing broken, damaged or lost! They also helped with storing some of our items we couldn’t bring to Melbourne due to the apartment size. Overall we had a great experience and think they are worth being on your list of removalists for interstate quotes.

Make contact with John Ryan Removals and ask for quote, I hope you can get all the services you are looking for.

I’ve used Chess a couple of times and been pretty pleased with them. We recently moved from Canberra to Sydney and used them. They’re not the cheapest (I think moving our 2BDR place with insurance was $5700 or slightly over) but they are easy to deal with and efficient (I should mention that price included full pack, packing materials and unpack to bench-level, plus insurance).

Others have used Grace and all experiences with them have been dire.

I have used Wridgways before moving from melb to Canberra and found them good (but others had bad experiences).

I’ve used Merv Oldfields Removalists in Queanbeyan for my last couple of moves and would certainly use them again.

I used King and Wilson for last year’s move from Sydney to Canberra. Very reasonably priced. They picked up my belongings on the Saturday in Sydney and they arrived, as agreed, on the following Thursday in Canberra. Nothing broken or missing and very pleasant removalists to boot. They operate nationally and internationally.
