Transit times for removals to Australia

Groupage or shared load consignments usually arrive nine to 14 weeks door-to-door. Keep in mind, though, that this can vary depending on volume being shipped, customs or immigration delays and weather conditions. Sole use containers usually take six to eight weeks port-to-port, and there's normally a weekly service to all major ports. Onward delivery to your new home will typically add an extra two weeks or so.

Why did you use us? Availability and price

Joanne Reddings

Treated our goods with the utmost care and respect

No room for improvement in my experience.

Why did you use us? They could meet our requirements on the dates we needed at an acceptable price

Do you have any additional comments or concerns regarding any portion of the service you received?
From the minute Catherine answered the phone to deal with my query, Darren conducted the FaceTime survey of
the considerable amount of items that needed moving and gave us a quote for the job, Clive, Lee, Ant and Rob did
our packing then, joined by Paul and Alan on day two to effect the move, unloaded everything, we did not have one
anxious moment during what can be a stressful experience. Everyone, especially the six involved in the move, was
unfailingly polite, could not have been more helpful and treated our goods with the utmost care and respect.
Hopefully, the supply of tea, coffee and carbonated beverages on day two, were some sort of recompense for a job
well done. In short, Top Job, boys and a BIG thank you is due. Looking ahead, if we move again, hopefully not
anytime soon, we'd have no hesitation is using this company again.

Catherine, the lady who took the initial enquiry call, could not have been more helpful and inspired confidence in your company.

Adrian Milledge
