Most painful international move ever
House move from Hong Kong to Sydney. Full container load so didn't need to combine with another client but AP delayed our shipment in Hong Kong for 6 weeks without notifying us. Our container was then shipped to Brisbane instead of Sydney - again without notifying us. Long inspection time & custom clearance due to Covid. AP asked for extra payment to deliver the last items - we agreed to pay 50% of their extra undisclosed charge (this was blamed on the HK office) to have the rest of our belongings delivered.
After 8 months we finally rece...

On time and efficient delivery.
The furniture was collected from Elanora on Monday 12 July, stored in container and delivered to Pimpama Friday 16 July on time at 8.00am. Moved from 4 bedroom two story house to 4 bedroom townhouse but most furniture kept downstairs plus we had packed all the “small” stuff. Team collecting were outstanding, Team delivering tended to leave cartons in easiest place but maybe our problem for not being more specific on labelling and some cartons repackaged in new double cartons with no labelling.
Good job all round.
Really nice Guys in both Teams.

The careful movers; not even close
Do not use. Moved cairns to the Sunshine Coast. Was not the cheapest quote, but I wanted the backing of a big company as I needed my move to go smoothly. You are required to pay the full cost up front before uplift and I did so without fuss. My belongings were collected on time and the delivery guys on the Coast were wonderful, but that’s the only good things I can say.
Moving day was extremely wet, which is out of the control of the company, however they took no care to dry the boxes and belongings after walking them through the rain, and the...
Absolutely disorganised. Very poor service, zero customer service.
Apart for the "doers", who seemed to be nice, all the managers and customer care people were absolutely useless. Even worse, they did not deliver what was expected (for example: utilities connection disconnection, valt unpack) and we paid for!
To be avoided like the plague.
Estimated dates mean nothing - avoid
I was quoted 10-12 weeks for a small home move from Melbourne to UK. The team that collected the goods were great but communication has been extremely limited from my contact at allied. It will now be 8.5 weeks before my shipment even leaves Melbourne. Who knows what further delays are ahead. I have no confidence in this company. I would not recommend.
Amazing Company! Highly recommend!
Allied Pickfords made moving houses the most relaxing and stress free experience for my family and I. The workers went far and beyond. They didn't say no to anything I asked them to do. They were willing to help in anyway. Very friendly staff. Amazing team. I will definitely use them again!
Professional and hassle free move
Moved 2 bedroom apartment to a 3 bed home- Sydney to Tamworth. Service was very professional from start to end. I wouldn’t move with anyone else! The boys packed up my kitchen and everything arrived safe and sound. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a hassle free move that ensures the utmost care for your belongings.
Moving made easy
Moved 4br home to country Wodonga. Very well coordinated from beginning. All arrived on time and safely. Would recommend them for your move. Good communication Made shifting a lot less stressful.
Is there an option for 0 stars?
We relocated from a 4 bedroom home in Auckland back to Adelaide. The move commenced in November 2020 and after 6.5 months in their opinion it is now completed. In the process we have lost a carton of clothes and they have destroyed a BBQ that was in a near new condition. After under quoting for our move from Auckland in November last year, once we had arrived in Australia we were told they underestimated the volume of our goods; we were told to pay an increased fee or they couldn't guarantee a quick transfer of our goods. We promptly paid ...and here we are 6.5 months later as described above. Their National Operations Manager doesn't want to know, in fact when I emailed him today he mistakenly copied me in to an email to his team saying "If he contacts anyone again, refer him to me". I was simply seeking compensation for the lost and damaged goods. I wasn't rude in anyway. In short this business treats its customers with contempt. This is the 2nd time I have used them for an international move; my mistake for giving them a second chance. Avoid!!!
Had a relocation interstate from Melbourne to Adelaide. Had issues with the storage facility I was to have my belongings held at in Adelaide. Allied sorted my short term storage in no time and subsequent delivery to my home in Adelaide, assisted in unpacking valuables and helped checking that everything was as it should be. Would recommend for anyone moving interstate

Our Town house -4 bedroom move was from Qld to Vic.
From the quoting to the packing to delivering to the storage in Melbourne- Allied Pickfords have been amazing.
Professional & Friendly staff including admin staff. Made the journey an easy one for us.

Fantastic bunch of guys!
We moved from a 2 bed apartment on the second floor to a 2 bed 2 story townhouse, 5/10mins down the road. They started around 7:30am and were finished by around 4, i think it was ( i had a bit of stuff!) I packed everything, they moved it all. Nothing was too much trouble, they were always smiling and having a joke, comfortable to be around. Anything I hadn’t finished, they sorted, no problems! They were gentle and cared. Highly recommend. Thank you for your hard work guys!!

Hasslefree interstate move
Move from Gold Coast to Melbourne. 3 bedroom house. Very timely and great teamwork. Needed my plants out of container on arrival in Melbourne. It was taken care of immediately.
Car was organised for shipment through Allied and hasslefree.
Highly recommend Alled Pickford.
Careless and poor allocation of resources.
I have booked Allied for a move within Canberra. They advised during the quote process that they could not be responsible for dismantling our large display cabinet but could send a couple of people to pack items in it so we could dismantle in prep for the move. The guys arrived and used my antique dining table as a packing surface without covering it first. They stuck tape to it and on removing the tape removed the French polish. The table is also covered in LOTS of scratches.
When contacted about this the move manager has completely ignored me...

We moved a 4 bedroom house and a grand piano. It all had to be stored for a few days too. Everything ran smoothly. The team were great from start to finish. We would highly recommend Allied.

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.
