We can help you move from Far North Queensland to the Australian Capital Territory. Our removals services are fast, safe, and secure. Whether you are moving to Canberra, Googong or Braddon, or further afield, we will take care of you and your belongings.


All items are packed in containers and transported by train and truck. This helps to avoid any problems if your plans change. It also ensures that your belongings stay in the container from packing to arrival at your new home. This method is fast and safe for securely moving your furniture and belongings.

Affordable removals services

We invest in our team, equipment and processes to ensure we provide our customers with the most efficient and competitive service from Cairns, Townsville and Regional North Queensland to ACT.


If you are pushed for time or are unsure how to pack your possessions securely, we can take care of this for you. We can even partially pack precious breakables and fragile items.

Valet unpacking

Should you wish to be pampered, we can organise a valet unpacking service which also includes fully setting up everything in your new home.

Vehicle transport

Sometimes our customers are unable to move their vehicles or boats themselves, which is why our transportation service can take care of this for you.


We can also assist you with obtaining insurance to protect your goods whilst they are in transit or storage.

Pet transport

Pets are family too but often they need to move at a different time to everyone else.
