We have been helping people move to South Australia since 1986, whether it’s Adelaide or the Barossa Valley. Our expert team of local removalists will help make your move, the best move. From Port Lincoln to Coober Pedy and down to Kangaroo Island, we’ve got South Australia covered.


Our team has experience with long-distance moves and is here to help make the process easier. Whether you are relocating for work, family, or just for a change of scenery, we are here to help every step of the way. From packing up your belongings to safely transporting them to your new home, we will handle all the logistics so you can focus on settling in and exploring your new surroundings.

Whether you’re moving into or out of a high-rise apartment or a large family house or require help moving from your business premises, we will ensure your relocation proceeds smoothly.

We continually invest in training and equipment. This is to ensure that our clients and their belongings reach their destination safely. Given the prevalence of high-rise buildings in and around Adelaide or Glenelg, we understand its significance.

When moving furniture and belongings to another state, we use containers to keep them safe. While in transit, your possessions stay in the container from when they leave your home until they arrive at your new place. Our method eliminates any potential for repeated handling, guaranteeing swift and safe delivery.

We use the railway system to move your belongings safely to South Australia. Your items will be secure during the journey until they arrive at your new home. Moreover, if your situation changes, your expertly packed container can stay in our secure storage facilities until you’re ready.

The Chess Moving Group comprises local family-owned removals companies in every state. This ensures we provide excellent service and the safe arrival of your belongings no matter where you move.


We have helped many families, businesses, and teams move from South Australia to Cairns in Far North Queensland. With Chess Moving, we offer affordable and expert removal services to customers in the area.

When looking for an interstate removals company here are just a few reasons why you should move with us:

Will my belongings be safe during the move from Cairns to Adelaide?

Absolutely. We use a containerised system, meaning your consignment will remain in the same shipping container from start to finish. Our Cairns removals team will pack your belongings using special materials to keep fragile items safe. Once the container is packed, we transport it using the rail network, which is one of the smoothest methods of transport.

The container is only opened once it reaches your new destination. This means there is no double handling, reducing the risk of breakages.

How long does your Cairns to Adelaide removal services take?

Several consignments go between Cairns and Adelaide each week. Typically, it takes between 5 and 10 days from collection to delivery. However, timings may vary depending on your requirements.

Are you able to relocate my car from Cairns to SA?

We can safely move your vehicle, boat, or jet ski from Cairns to Adelaide or anywhere in South Australia.
