I NEED TO MOVE

What areas do you service ?

Hire A Mover operates in the metro and regional areas of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Gold Coast. To enquiry about your specific requirements, give us a call on 1300336028 or send us an email.

What are your office hours?

Our head office is open Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time.

Do you move pianos?

Pianos are on a case by case basis and depend on the type of piano, amount of stairs, and various logistical scenarios. If we do not believe we can move your piano safely, we will let you know and recommend that you use a piano specialist. In the cases where we can move your piano, an extra charge will apply. Please provide information about the type of piano, the number of stairs involved at both the origin and destination and any other important information when you request a quote.

Do you work on weekends and public holidays?

We do work on weekends (both Saturdays and Sundays) and on public holidays. However, as weekends are generally the busy times, we highly recommend that you give us a call on 1300336028  to make sure the removalists in your area are available on your preferred moving date.Please be aware that our office is not open on weekends and public holidays, so feel free to fill out the online quote form and we will get back to you as soon as we re-open.

What happens if I need to cancel?

Moves that are cancelled prior to 48 hours of the scheduled arrival time will incur no fee and your deposit will be refunded in full. Your deposit will be forfeited for any move cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled arrival time. Any move cancelled or re-scheduled on the day of the move will incur the minimum 2 hour charge plus travel fee.

What time can you start?

We generally have 2 available time slots during the day: either first thing in the morning around 8 am or in the afternoon between 1-3pm. Please note the afternoon timeslot is an estimate and depends on when the morning job finishes. The movers may be early or late however they will give you a call when they are on their way. We do, however, have flexibility and should you require a different start time, just give us a call and we will see what we can do!

How can I get a quote?

If you are moving locally we can provide you with a set travel fee and hourly rate. You can either give us a call on 1300336028 or fill in the online quote form. We will get back to you shortly with our rates.

What size are your trucks?

We have a large fleet of trucks ranging from ute size up to 10 tonnes, we will assign the most suitable truck accordingly to the requirement of your move.

An important thing to take into account is that larger trucks are not always better. Larger trucks take longer to load and pack (especially if you are only moving the goods from an average sized apartment) as everything takes a lot longer to secure and strap as opposed to a smaller truck where all your goods can be packed with minimal space for them to move around in transit. Our staff have undertaken thousands of successful moves, so please leave which truck to send up to us.

BOXES
