Whether your move is taking you to Australia’s fastest growing city, Melbourne, or you’re heading towards the rolling Dandenong ranges, the Grampians or the regional hubs of Bendigo and Ballarat, we have over 35 years’ experience in interstate removals and helping people relocate from the Far North to Victoria. As one of our busiest routes, we ensure we provide the quickest and most secure option for those looking to relocate.


We perform all our moves using specialised containers. Our team in Cairns will safely pack your items into a container that will remain sealed until it arrives in Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria. The local team will then deliver and unpack everything at your home.

If there are any changes to your situation or your move is delayed, there is no need to unload and reload your belongings. Your professionally packed container will remain at our secure storage facilities until you are ready to go.

As proud Australian Furniture Removals Association (AFRA) members, we have invested heavily in training and equipment to ensure stress-free moves for our customers and their belongings. With the prominence of high-rise buildings in and around Melbourne, we know just how important this is. Whether you are moving from or into a high-rise unit, an apartment, a large family home, or office or  commercial premises, Greater Northern Removals & Storage will ensure your move runs like clockwork.

As a Chess Moving partner, we provide complete door-to-door removal services for moving local, intra or interstate moves across Australia. This partnership of local family-owned removals companies enables us to deliver excellent service regardless of your destination. All our removalists are fully trained to AFRA standards to ensure your move is carried out to the highest professional standards.


Since 1986 we have assisted families and corporate teams who move from Victoria to Cairns and across Far North Queensland. Through our Chess Moving partnership, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with excellent customer service and reliable, cost-effective and professional removals solutions throughout the region.

Whether you are moving to Cairns or one of the surrounding towns, Cape York or to the Torres Strait, we have the knowledge, equipment and connections to get you there safely and securely. For more information call 131469.

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 Melbourne?

We utilise a containerised system, meaning your shipment will stay in the same container from beginning to end. Our Cairns removals team will pack your belongings using special materials to ensure the safety of fragile items. Once the container is packed, we transport it using the rail network, one of the smoothest transport methods.

The container is only opened once it arrives at your new destination in Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria. This eliminates the need for double handling and reduces the risk of breakages.

How long will it take to move my furniture from Cairns to Melbourne?

We transport many items between Cairns and Melbourne each week. It usually takes 5 to 10 days from picking up the items to delivering them. However, the timing can change based on your needs.

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

We can safely move your vehicle, boat, or jet ski from Cairns to Melbourne or anywhere in Victoria.
