Frequently Asked Questions

How much notice do I need to book a move?
The amount of notice required depends on the nature of your move. We recommend that you book your international removal four to six weeks prior to departure. You should allow one to two weeks notice for an Interstate removal and three to four weeks notice is generally sufficient for a Local move. These suggested lead times will allow us to secure and confirm your booking for your preferred dates and give you sufficient time to prepare for your move. Our Moving Planners contain a useful time-line schedule of helpful tips to guide you through the process and have you ready for moving day. Please note that a greater leader time is required for moves planned for the peak Summer period

Can I pack my own removal boxes?
You can pack your own boxes but if there are any breakages in those boxes, we will take no responsibility nor will these items be covered by insurance, except in the event of the total loss of the carton in which case the maximum value of each carton is deemed to be $500 – please refer Insurance Policy Wording. A detailed description of our most commonly used cartons appears under the Moving Services directory.
