Disappointed. An incorrect estimate of truck size by [name removed] to be used to move my 3 bedroom house plus study and shed equipment meant I then had the inconvenience of trying to organise a trailer to move possessions left behind. An already stressful situation turned into a nightmare. [name removed] and [name removed] worked hard that day but I have found minor damage on furniture pieces and a corner of a table completely snapped off. I would suggest a walk through the property to be moved to obtain an accurate assessment of move size so the already stressed client is not left with the worry and added cost of how to get those possessions to their new home.

Disappointed in hindsight - great removalists, but the charges were not as expected.
The Moving Man in Perth undertook my relocation from Joondalup to the Peel region in mid March. Getting it organized was really easy with just a couple of emails.
My removalists, [name removed] and [name removed] were efficient, experienced, knowledgeable and very pleasant. Despite really hot, muggy weather they didn’t slow down all day. The move started just after 7am and was finished just before 2pm.
Overall, they made moving day far less stressful than the lead up to it.
There was a little damage to some IKEA furniture, which, I suppose, is...not surprising, and damage to a laundry appliance which was worthy of a claim against my removal insurance. Nothing was completely broken, and most of my furniture came through in original condition. However, there have been a few disappointments in hindsight. Given the hot steamy, weather, my removalists were also hot, sweaty and a bit dirty. In the days after the move, I began to find large grubby marks on my walls where [name removed] and [name removed] had moved furniture, and, in the end, I had to sugarsoap most of my walls. Please consider using a wet towel in hot weather to give yourselves a quick wipe over. I was particularly disappointed with the final cost which was significantly more than I had anticipated, even with GST. I’m on a limited income and had budgeted this move very carefully. I have tried to hash this out with the Moving Man management without success. At present, there’s still a significant difference between my calculations and theirs.

I have moved into a two story apartment and am looking for furniture movers who can lift large items (sofas, mattresses) up over 1st floor balcony, as the stair well is to small and twisted to get these items up to the main living area.
Hi Briony, we are fully booked at present, however, we can suggest a company called Micro Moves who may be able to help you. 0411 485 532. Wishing you well in these uncertain times.
