Whether you are heading to the bustling city of Perth, the stunning coastal towns of Carnarvon or Broome, or escaping to the Margaret River, we have been helping our customers move interstate to Western Australia since 1986. Whilst Perth itself is one of the world’s most isolated cities, we will ensure your move remains hassle free, with a combination of experienced removalists and a network that spans throughout WA.


By containerising your consignment, your household items will be transferred by rail, providing the smoothest and securest option, and avoiding bumpy, uneven roads. Another benefit to this method is that should your plans change, your belongings can remain in the container and placed in storage, until you are ready for them to be delivered. This approach is not only the quickest, taking approximately eight days, but it is also the most secure way to safely move your furniture and possessions.


Under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007, goods imported into Western Australia are subject to quarantine restrictions. All customers moving interstate will need to complete the ‘Unaccompanied Personal Effects Declaration Quarantine WA’ to comply with this regulation. Keep in mind that you cannot take plants, fruit or vegetables into Western Australia. If you have any questions or require advice, our team is ready and able to help.

A Chess Moving partner, we utilise a network of Australian local family-owned removal companies who share our values and procedures. This ensures we provide a complete end-to-end solution delivered by trained and experienced removal professionals, no matter where you go. All our removalists are fully trained to AFRA standards to ensure each, and every single move is carried out to the highest professional standards and adheres to COVID-19 prevention measures.


With extensive experience helping families, businesses and corporate teams move from Cairns to Perth. With Chess Moving, we offer affordable and expert removal services to customers in the area.

We can help you move safely and securely, whether you’re moving from Cairns, Atherton Tablelands, Gulf Savannah, or any nearby towns. We have the expertise, tools, and contacts for a smooth move. For more information call 131469.

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.
