Moving Home in Cairns? Let Our Removalists Handle the Heavy Lifting

Moving requires a lot of heavy lifting, from finding a new place to call home, to organising furniture removals. More often than not, moving to a new home involves more than just changing homes. There may also be a new job or new schools for the kids to consider.

Having helped thousands of families move home, we believe that our role as a reputable Cairns removals company is to give you one less thing to worry about. Emotionally, but also physically.

With 1 in 5 Australians moving every year (source: Budget Direct), that’s a lot of stress for our laid-back nation to be carrying. So, if you are in the process of moving home, just how much help can a professional Cairns removalist be?

Manage your moving expenses

When it comes to moving home, there are a lot of unknowns. If you are contemplating using a professional removalist, one of the first things you are going to want to know is ‘how much’?

Of course, we highly recommend using a furniture removalist, but sometimes people don’t budget for it. Instead, when they are moving house, they also attempt to take on the job of moving their possessions.

The problem when doing it yourself is that there are a lot of hidden costs. From the time it takes to packing and protection materials, and hiring a truck, to potentially having to replace any damaged items. The costs and stress can quickly spiral.

However, when you choose stress-free moving with our friendly and professional team, not only do they take care of the heavy lifting, but you know exactly how much you will need to spend.

Outsource the packing

Research from 2,000 recent movers, revealed that packing up the ‘old house’ is the single-worst part of moving home (source: Express).

Wardrobes, sofas, and other bulky items can all prove to be a nightmare to get out of the house, let alone making sure it fits into the new one.

Rather than having to worry about emptying your old house on moving day, use our unpacking and packing service so you can experience a smooth move.

Be ready for the unexpected

Almost 25% of movers discover too late that the previous owners of their new home haven’t totally finished moving out. This may just be a case of forgetting the kettle, or they could have been let down by their removal company.

Fortunately, if the unexpected were to happen and for whatever reason, you couldn’t access your new home, we have a solution.

If you’re moving from Cairns to another city or state, it’s highly likely we will containerise your possessions. This means your belongings can be safely stored until you can access your new home.

If you are moving in or around Cairns, our clients can utilise our secure storage facility on a short or long-term basis.

Minimise the likelihood of any unexpected damage

It’s one of the biggest fears people have when they are moving home. From scratching furniture to denting walls, you name it, we’ve seen it. And, unfortunately, when people attempt to move their possessions themselves, the risks increase dramatically.

We’ve all seen utes up piled with furniture racing down the Bruce or Captain Cook Highway. Sadly in our climate, it doesn’t really matter if someone has done a fantastic job of playing furniture Tetris. As soon as a deluge of rain hits the furniture, the damage is done.

With a professional removals team on your side, you don’t have to play dodge with our tropical weather or worry about your belongings. All our removalists are professionally trained and utilise industry-specific equipment to ensure your move is a safe and secure one.

Reduce injuries and your medical bills

Moving home requires a lot of heavy lifting. With bulky objects and a lack of professional equipment, the chances of injuring yourself are high.

This can mean anything from a strained back or broken bones to cuts and scrapes (and of course a dent in your pride).

In the most serious of cases, this can lead to a visit to the hospital and even surgery.

Now, rather than risk any of that, hiring a professional removalist will instead help ensure that you and your furniture rock up to your new home in one piece.
