Fabulous service

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 16, 2012

Our removalist, [name removed] was fantastic, fast, efficient and on time. They were helpful in doing two moves for me on one day. I have since referred them to a number of people I know, and really appreciate their cost per minute/km charging as I knew they completed the job as fast as they could.

+ fast, on time and friendly

Awesome and efficient

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 16, 2012

friendly blokes, bubble wrapped everything and no damage at all to furniture or property. They asked us questions on most things and it ended up cheaper than i expected. i will definitely use them again and recommend to friends and family. they did not stop all day and set up the furniture that i asked for.

+ friendly, honest and efficient

Easy move, no fuss and no headaches

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 17, 2012

From the initial enguiry to the final wave, I found the whole move to be very easy.
I had contacted several companies and given them the same info. City Move were one of the last I contacted, and one of the first to respond with a provisional quote over the phone, that was very competitive.
Once all arrangements had been made they kept in touch to confirm what was happening, and I got a call from the guy doing our move, the night before to confirm the arrival time. He called again in the morning to confirm, and then a little later to advise they were running late due to the weather.
The whole move out went like clockwork, with our apartment being emptied in only a couple of hours (16 floors to the basement where the truck was parked, with one dodgy elevator and one ok)
We then arranged a time to meet at the other end (an interstate location), where they rang me again to confirm they were running a little late due to bad driving conditions - I had experienced them too so had no issues about this
Everything was in the new place in about an hour and they were on their way shortly after

The whole process was painless, and we had all possessions the same day

+ Fast, efficient, cost effective, friendly

So stress-free, you are unique!

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 30, 2012

Moving a small, but well-loved load of furniture from Melbourne to The Channon in NSW is not everyone
s idea of a great job, but your staff were fantastic. Very polite, came on time, cared for and packed my beloved couches beautifully. They have never had such attention. Everyone was charming, and there was absolutely no stress - even at the other end in The Channon which is not always an easy place to get into....but your people co-operated beautifully with my son to ensure the safe and happy delivery of furniture which has given my distant family much joy and comfort.
Hooray for Citymove!! I have been referring them to everyone and will use them when I make my next move. All the best, Robin.

+ a great degree of integrity which in the moving business is unusual to say the least and attention to detail..

- possibly a little expensive for such a small load, but then it was a long way and well worth it.

Amazing service

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jul 16, 2012

Citymove delivered an excellent service from the very first phone call. Efficient, pleasant and knowledgeable staff. The men who moved the furniture were pleasant, quick and delivered a service that I cannot fault. (Andrew and Carl - of the big orange van!!) This service I would highly recommend to who ever needs to be moved quickly and efficiently at an amazingly good price.

Highly Recommend

5 out of 5, reviewed on Sep 24, 2012

I've moved with Citymove 3 times in the last 3 years and they are always fantastic. They're competitively priced with upfront and detailed quotes -I've never been charged any hidden fees. They're always well-organised and send confirmations and reminders. They allow you to book in a preferred window of time on the day, and have alway turned up right on time. They've always handled my furniture with care and expertise but what I've enjoyed most is that every mover I've had, has had this 'can do' attitude which really takes the stress out of moving. All three of my last units have been 3rd floor walk-ups and two have them have had a 200m odd walk as well and they've always approached the job like it's no problem and they're happy to help.

+ Positive attitude and expertise of movers

Citymove met my expectations - and that's not easy

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 07, 2012

Citymove removalists are friendly and helpful from the first phone call to moving day. The guys who turned up were friendly and professional. They wrapped my big fridge, mattress and glass cabinet with bubble wrap and moved everything with care. They also honoured their policy of crediting me with $1 for every minute they're late for showing up (up to 30 minutes). These guys are highly recommended!

+ Friendliness and professionalism

- No cons but if you are lazy and don't want to do any packing yourself, don't use them because they charge by the minute.

Fantastic Service

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 23, 2012

The boys arrived on time, and from the minute they arrived were friendly and ready to go! My move was painless and very quick. The boys did the whole move within the minimum 90 minutes and with time to spare. My furniture was looked after, mattress was plastic wrapped and the option to protect the rest of my furniture was given to me. I would gladly recommend Citymove and would definitely use them again in the future.

+ Efficient, reliable and friendly service

Very happy

Extremely happy with the service provided by citymove Canberra. Two guys and a van showed up on time and no time was wasted. Guys started packing things and all my house was moved in two hours. Nothing was broken and would highly recommend to anyone. Have already sought a quote for next move.

The best, would be my first choice next move!!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 27, 2012

Communication was great, they were so helpful, so accommodating, so patient, so energetic, so fast and thorough. This was my first move in 24 years and I was concerned that the process would drag out and become rather expensive but my fears were unfounded, the final cost was less than their projected quote! They put my mind at rest and allowed me to handle a rather anxious departure with dignity.

+ Fast, fit, nothing was a problem!

Wouldn't Move With Anyone Else!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 27, 2012

I have now moved with Citymove five times. Every single time I have used Citymove's services, I have been extremely impressed. In this instance, I had a family emergency in the early hours of the morning of my move, and Citymove were able to accommodate a change in time at the last minute, saving me a massive amount of trouble. The move then went ahead without a hitch that afternoon. I would not move with anyone else now that I have had such fantastic service. Move with Citymove - you will not be disappointed.

+ Reliability, efficiency, competitive pricing, friendly staff, flexibility.

Made the Day Easier

From the time of booking the move to the actual move on the day Communication was excellent. The Two Guys who moved me on the day worked really hard for their money. They were very polite, fast and thorough and took great care of my furniture. I would certainly recommend Citymove Removals.

The attitude was amazing its been years since I have experienced service this good. Nothing was too much trouble! Both men protected our furniture 100% but it was their attitude that impressed me the most. They tried different angles to get the oversized furniture into our house. Thanks guys! Awesome job!

Professional Service

5 out of 5, reviewed on Nov 30, 2012

I rang the company to organise the move for the same day, not being very hopeful it could happen, as it was Saturday. To my pleasant surprise, the service was organised, and the communication was kept throughout all the time until the truck arrived. Two gentlemen that did the work were extremely polite, considerate and efficient. They worked very hard. I am grateful for such a great service.

+ Good people, reliable and inexpensive.

Couldn't have been better

5 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 01, 2012

The move was perfect. They arrived when they said they would, were very diligent in moving. They went out of their way to ensure that the furniture didn't scratch the walls, and kept jogging back to keep the time to a minimum. I was tempted to tell then to take it easy. It was a rather warm day :). They even offered to reassemble the bed.

+ Prompt, careful

- Could have used just one man and a truck, but their insurance doesnt allow me to help out

Terrific result - friendly, efficient and professional

5 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 03, 2012

Citymove is a user-friendly and professional service, and I have no hesitation recommending them.
Booking the move was easy and the call-centre team were efficient and easy to deal with. Pricing was well-explained and made sense.
On the day, our movers Arthur and Nicholas were excellent. For starters, perfectly on time and a call on approach so we knew they were coming. Notwithstanding the sweltering heat and thunderstorms on the day, they were professional, efficient and inspired great confidence. We were really happy with their manner and care with our furniture and possessions, and good grace when dealing with 4 stops, including two spiral staircases and no parking at the final destination!
It was a 5 star service at a great value price. Thanks!

+ Reliable, careful, easy to deal with

Fast and Efficient

5 out of 5, reviewed on Dec 04, 2012

The guys were super friendly and so helpful. They were efficient and very fast, they were running the whole time. Very fit guys and great eye candy to watch them work. This was the first time I have used a furniture removal company and would recommend it to anyone who either didn't have the time, or like me, was incapacitated (broken leg).

+ Efficient and easy

- A little pricey, but I am used to hiring a $50 trailer and taking the whole day!
