Whether you are heading to Australia’s second oldest city, Hobart, or the riverside city of Launceston, relocating to Tasmania with Greater Northern Removals and Storage couldn’t be easier. With a combination of rail and sea transportation solutions, we have been helping our customers move the 240kms across the Bass Strait from the mainland, since 1986. With 40% of the island made up of national parks and World Heritage sites, we can understand why it is the ideal tree change.


By containerising your consignment, you can ensure that all your household items will be transferred safely and securely. Another benefit for our customers is the flexibility containers provide. Should your plans change, or your move be postponed, we can place your container in storage without any disruption.

Tasmania is ranked as one of the safest states in Australia for people and property so make sure when you’re relocating, that you choose a company who looks after your property as well as you do.


Under the Plant Quarantine Act 1997, goods imported into Tasmania are subject to quarantine restrictions. All customers moving interstate will need to complete the ‘Declaration for the Movement of Unaccompanied Personal Effects into Tasmania’ to comply with this regulation. Keep in mind that you cannot take plants, fruit or vegetables into Tasmania. If you have any questions or require advice, our team is ready and able to help.

Our COVID-19 Prevention Measures Policy ensures every move is COVID-Safe. Our containerised approach ensures we can transport your household belongings across Australia by rail, with local teams collecting and delivering your 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.

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.
