Recommend me an interstate removalist

Yay, and opportunity to make my own recommend thread. So due to work and s*** I'm moving back to Brisbane for a while, and I need to get all my stuff carted from Melbourne to Brisbane, so was wondering if anyone has recommendations for a good, reliable interstate removalist. While I don't want to be ripped off, price isn't as much of a factor as just getting someone who isn't dodgy and is going to do a good job of handling my stuff, don't want all my expensive s*** to turn up at the other end f***ed.

maybe call DHA and see who they are currently using,

I've done a few moves over time, (being an army brat and all), and the only only I would avoid is crown, a whole heap of s*** was missing boxes, or not there (on a truck that was 5 days late, and was supposed to be a direct delivery, house to house, but clearly wasn't, left on one truck, showed up on three, and everything (that was delivered) had clearly been gone through, biggest piss off factor was the old man lost a heap of plaques and everything, from the various sgts messes and units he's been involved in for 30 odd years)

grace wasn't too bad,

all that said, it has been years, and the whole lot might have changed now

Did you find a good removalist?

I have no idea about costs. I'm curious if it would sometimes be better to sell a few heavy things before moving

Also, I thought the Melbourne job market would be better than Brisbane? (friends have moved there for career opportunities)

It probably is, I'm not moving to brisbane to look for a job, I already have a job doing some contract work for a mob in Brisbane, that I was doing from Melbourne, but what started as a small-ish 12 month contract has ballooned out into something a lot bigger, so now its just going to be more convinient to be based back up in Brisbane for a bit. Theres a few personal reasons too, family related stuff, just makes sense atm.

Thanks for the PM's sleepy, I'll have a read and get back to you tomorrow. Sounds good though, cos everything I've looked at so far has been mega expensive. Almost be cheaper to sell my stuff and buy new stuff compared to the cost some companies ask to move it.

You could also consider putting your furniture (I assume that is the expensive stuff to move) into storage / or a friends place if you weren't sure about how long you were going to stay in Brisbane for and move into a share / or furnished place

Lots of options depending on your situation

You could also sweet talk your boss and see if they are willing to help out a bit with moving costs considering it will help the business having you in Brisbane
