Hi Adrian
Can’t answer your question re price but I would definitely advocate using another removal company. Allied Pickfords comes across as professional etc on signing you up… and the initial packing and shipping of your goods… from that point you are alone and if something goes wrong like stuff goes missing you are led a very merry trip around the maze …. They are unprofessional, obstructive and sorry to say , judging on my experience, their staff or some of them have sticky fingers. As to the insurances , this will cost you an arm and a leg and if it comes time to claim , wow, worse that the worst picture you may have about insurance companies attempting to worm their way out of paying… the obstructive behavior of those concerned is appealing. So do not do comprehensive insurance… waste of money- do total loss only… self insure on the rest… way cheaper… even if stuff goes missing - which with this lot is probable- based on my dealings with them
Allied Pickfords have left an image of being corporate thugs n my mind- seek an alternative mover

We are relocating from Germany to Perth between October 23 - June 24. We are waiting for the completion of our new apartment in Subiaco, which is estimated to be finished by October 24. It depends when we sell our home here as to the relocation date. I have already submitted the quote request for the removal. But I would like the cost for storage in the interim period until the completion of our apartment. Many thanks, Gary

Gary I assume you are talking about storing at Allied Pickfords....if you are the only advice I can give you is don't ....your goods are not cared for the way they profess they will be, boxes will be opened and items removed and whatever you not even bother paying insurance ...unless they can offer you total loss( like your container being lost at sea or it just goes missing......), to do comprehensive insurance with them is a costly exercise and you will have nightmares , as we did, trying to get a claim paid...every trick is used to avoid payment, T&C's, avoiding issues, evading facts and generally being just plain downright unethical and very careful of doing business with these sharks. IF there is storage , Wilsons storage , in Perth ,then they are the ones to my mind the best in Melbourne, secure , clean, well run by professionals doing a professional job....As to cost it boils down to the size of the storage area you need.
I hope this helps...I would however strongly suggest seek an alternative removal company...Biddulphs, Stuttaford Van Lines or one of the very many others...avoid Allied Pickfords like the plague

What size containers are available to move our household goods

We think that a standard 20ft container would be to big for our needs. Is there a smaller option?

Hi, do you deliver and unpack stuff from storage on saturdays?

Bob L. · NSW, Girraween (Business Relocations Office)

My daughter is moving from Sydney to Tasmania her furniture will only fill half a container.
I believe she has to wait for the container to be filled before it is shipped.
With your experience on average how long will she have to wait for her container to be shipped to Tasmania I realise that you can not give me a definite time period I'm after an average.
cheers Bob Lubout

Hi what are your payments terms? We would like to pay a decent deposit and not pay the full invoice until the sum of our worldly belongings have arrived at the other end.


I was asked to pay in full otherwise they would not come pick up so I did. when my goods arrived, 2 days before delivery they said they needed to add extra charges for difficult access (this was not previously discussed and to this day I still don’t know the basis of calculation). Again I had to settle the extra fees in full before delivery could take place. They said it’s their “company policy”.

hi we tried emailing you and calling you a few times and no reply regarding my move from Australia to Austria. i got an email a few weeks ago that my stuff will arrive last week friday. and its been more than a week and tried emailing and calling and I got zero reply?

Jenni · Allied Moving Services

Hi I’m just wondering how a quote can go from one price one day and $1000 more the next day ?
I was quoted a estimate for a move and rang up a few days later and she told me same volume estimate but $1000 more
It’s a case of your work against there as she claimed she never quoted that but confirmed with my husband that’s what I said as soon as I got off phone


Hi Jenni. The quote that I received from Allied Pickfords was a written quote as were the quotes from other companies.
Only the company in question would be able to explain the difference in the quotes that you received. The bottom line is to ensure that you get all quotes in writing.


Well yes definitely understanding this now as they can just change it when ever they like. Just abit ticked off that they can change it so much with same info but say they never said that..!!

Hi Jenni, Thank you for your question.
Our consultants quote jobs based on the information provided during either a home visit or phone call. Your estimate over the phone may have changed for various reasons, such as items requiring special packing/crating or updated information on access to your home. We would like to follow this up for you and provide you with an accurate written quote for your move. If you can please email through your contact details to we will be able to assist.

That’s interesting because nothing changed same vol same address pickup / drop off just $1000 more ?!?!

emma · Allied Moving Services

is it normal to pay before the pickup? please help i have been searching and looking for days on who to move with.



I am sure that we should not pay full amount in advance. You need to hold a part of that and pay at end otherwise they dont care what service they are giving!!!!! I had bad expriance with poor quality with Allied last month and my hand was off !!!

I made a review for them and i didnt get proper answer from them. I really upset with this company.

I advise, Dont pay full amount in advance.

Anyone can share me their successful experience how to claim back their looses items from Allied Pickfords and insurance company.I found it is difficult to get back from them .and cannot really reach through their management team.

Hi Elaine,

I have had to do this twice:

1. International relocation. Some minor items damaged. I contacted my move manager (or relocation specialist from Allied Pickfords) and she put me in contact wit the international move claim department. After that I submitted an online claim and after 2 weeks I followed up. After my follow up all was settled and they paid the claim (again, minor and reasonable things).

2. Recently, local move in Sydney. I contacted my move manager and she put me in contact with their insurance company. They contacted me and explained the claim process to me. I just very recently submitted the claim documents and they confirmed they have received them and they are reviewing the case. If I don't hear back from them I will follow up in 2 weeks.

The key to all this: contact your move manager. Mine was great and she got back to me right away. If yours is not getting back to you, contact the sales person that you went to contract with, they are usually pretty good too.

The best of luck.
