Since 1986, we have been helping families, businesses and corporate team members make stress-free moves between Cairns and the Sunshine Coast, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and the Gympie regions. Experienced removalists, we ensure that no matter where you are moving to, we provide a stress-free complete end-to-end removals service.


We always use the fastest, most economical method to relocate intrastate, which often includes the rail network that runs between Cairns and Brisbane, along with local professional removalists who we know and trust. This enables us to get you, your family, business, or corporate team members packed and ready to move quickly. All of our removals are containerised, so whether you need an express move, or even a delayed move, there is no need to load or unload your possessions unnecessarily. Part of the Chess Moving Group, our network is Australia wide, so you can be confident wherever and however you are moving, everything will be handled with care.

Over the last 35 years, we have invested heavily in training and equipment to ensure our customers and their belongings reach their destination safely and securely. With the prominence of high-rise buildings in and around the Sunshine Coast, 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 need assistance relocating from your commercial premises, Greater Northern Removals & Storage will ensure your move runs like clockwork.


With extensive experience helping families, businesses and corporate teams move from the Sunshine Coast to Cairns across Far North Queensland, we know how to get you moving. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with cost-effective and professional removals solutions throughout the region. Whether you are moving to Cairns or one of the surrounding towns, Atherton Tablelands or further into the Gulf Savannah, we have the knowledge, equipment and connections to move you safely and securely.


We pride ourselves of having extensive knowledge and expertise to assist our customers when moving throughout the Cape York Peninsula. If you are moving from the Sunshine Coast to Cape York, working with a professional removals company will ensure your furniture and belongings arrive there quickly and safely. We continually invest in our equipment and ensure all of our trucks are purposely specified to handle regional roads, protecting your possessions and giving you peace of mind.

Depending on what time of year you are moving, some parts of the region may only be accessible by sea freight. With extensive connections and logistical frameworks in place throughout the Cape York Peninsula, wherever you are moving, we can get you there safely and efficiently.

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.
