Whether you’re 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 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 interstate.


All our consignments are containerised, meaning your possessions are loaded safely and securely, remaining untouched until they reach your new home. This enables our team in Cairns to pack all your belongings safely and securely into a dedicated container, which is then sealed until it arrives in Victoria for the local team to deliver and unpack at your home. If your situation changes or your move is delayed, there is no need to unload and reload your belongings, as your professionally packed contained will remain at our secure storage facilities until you are ready to go.

Proud Australian Furniture Removals Association (AFRA) members, 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 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 need assistance relocating from your commercial premises, Greater Northern Removals & Storage will ensure your move runs like clockwork.

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.

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.
