Good moving, terrible communication

The movers did a good job, but the communication from Allied was terrible. They repeatedly contacted the wrong number, after I had confirmed the correct number for contact and told them multiple times to stop calling the other number. There were also issues with clarity around the charges and billing for the service. Would not do business with them again.

Rough removalists

Moved a 4 bedroom house from Ballarat to Canberra. Move was conducted on time. The removalists were very rough with the items. The fridge was scratched on pick up and the sliding door frame was bent where it was taken through. They spat at my front doorstep.

Missed timeline/poor communication

Moved from NZ to Canberra - overall Ok but very upset that it has been more than 3 weeks and the empty 140 boxes/wrapping have not been picked up yet.Called/emailed several times/ no response at all. Even tried complaining on their review site - no follow up.Absolutely fed up

Best experience I’ve had & will use them again

I had vacated from a 2 bedroom apartment, my belonging were relocated from Melbourne vic to Brisbane Qld. Service was great, the people were friendly.
From start to finish the whole experience was fantastic.

Local move an 'easy' nightmare

The move was considered by the removalists 'easy'. It was a 2-bed house move without stairs locally in a distance less than 5km. Allied Pickfords selected a very small truck which, of course, made the move slower (with two loads). Also, the team was very slow. For three people, I would believe the move could be done in maximum of 3 hours, but it took 5 hours. The staff was using the phone, walking slowly, knowing that I was paying per hour. Also, they did not wrap the furniture and white goods while transporting from the truck to my new home. I would not recommend this company to anyone. It is sad as a big and known company like this could be so unprofessional.

Hi Dick, I am sorry to hear about your local move experience. So I can investigate, can you please send me through your job details to customerservice@alliedpickfords.com.au and we will review this.

I thoroughly recommend the Allied team, they made a complex and varied move very stress free

A short distance move from one Canberra suburb to another. But a lot of very different things in the move, large bulky sculptures, pots, big bbq as well as the usual household furniture.
Very impressive team, from
Michael who assessed my requirement, Dean who coordinated my team, Luke who followed up how things were progressing, and the hugely capable and flexible team on the day. They arrived on time and worked quickly and were very strong. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was delivered and unpacked promptly in the rooms I nominated. A first class effort!

Very Happy With Small Move From Latrobe TAS Back to Mainland

It was a small move, just 8 or 9 cartons which I delivered to the depot myself. One went to Melbourne, the rest to Bundaberg, QLD. I was in no hurry to receive the goods, but they were delivered in a timely fashion and arrived fine - with a courtesy call a day ahead at both destinations.
Really have to commend the young lady at the depot in Latrobe for her very helpful and professional advice and service. Well done!
And, naturally, the rest of the team for getting my goods delivered safely and at a reasonable cost...
I will have no hesitation using Allied Pickfords in the future. Show reply

Find a different service provider

We needed 2 items moved from Canberra to Coffs Harbour. They needed constant prodding to finalise the quote which ended up being the afternoon before scheduled pick up (and needed full payment in a matter of hours). Missed 5 delivery dates in a row and didn't contact us once.

Smooth Move North

Allied Pickfords for a stress free move. A very smooth process with great communication between areas within Allied Pickfords. Timing of all aspects from freight forward item collection to uplift went without a hitch. Staff in both locations were punctual, friendly and professional. The cost was very reasonable and the fact that everything worked made it great value for money. I would highly recommend using Allied Pickfords for your next move.

If you are moving to C5 Campbell use Allied Pickfords

We moved from our large house in Jerrabomberra to a new unit in the C5 complex. At both ends for the pack, upload, unload and unpack the AP team were first rate. Great care was taken with our valuable possessions. They were even responsive on the weekend to collect and remove all the boxes and packings. Great service all round and great value for money.
