With much of our beautiful city being built on stilts, it’s no wonder that moving in Brisbane proves to be a slightly more unique experience than moving anywhere else in Australia. So seeking out a quality removalist is of utmost importance, to ensure your belongings aren’t subject to clumsy hands as they’re carried down steep staircases or, even worse, the extreme weather our fair city loves to taunt us with during the warmer months.
Moving in Brisbane
- Avoid moving during the wet season
- Check ahead for any known Tropical Cyclones or other extreme weather warnings
- Alert your removalist if you’re moving in or out of a Queenslander-style home
SO WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A REMOVALIST IN BRISBANE?
Attention to detailA great removalist will not only visit your current house to inspect your property and give you an estimate and run down of any potential difficulties and how to overcome them, they’ll also visit your new home to make the same assessments. After all, if you’re moving a piano from a pokey top floor apartment on a busy street into a Queenslander-style home on stilts, you need someone who is trained to overcome these sorts of barriers.

Packing and storage
The worst part about moving is packing right? It starts with great intentions but tends to go down the drain quite quickly when you realise just how much work is ahead of you. A quality removalist company will not only be able to supply packing materials and a checklist, they should also offer packing services to do the job for you.
Removalists should also have storage space for your items, should you be downsizing, still waiting for your new home to be finished or if you’re moving into temporary accommodation. If they’re not ready to care for your items over a longer period, you should consider looking elsewhere.
