HOME REMOVALS Punctual and responsible removalists in the Eastern Suburbs

RELIABLE & EFFICIENT Eastern Suburbs Removals


Whether we’re moving one room, a studio or whole family home we’ve got you covered. Our team of removalists come bearing tools so no need to worry about how you are going to dismantle your bed, take down your wardrobe or take off that door to get the couch out of the house. Our initial phone consultation will ensure we send the correct vehicle & tools to get the job done, keeping both time and cost to a minimum for you.


Our movers understand that our job is more than just home removals though - it's about helping you through a big change in your life. That's why our removalists go the extra mile in all they do. We treat your home as if it were our own, taking care and attention in all we do. It's all part of our commitment to getting you settled in easily and get on with your life!


We generally charge by the hour, though we are also able to provide fixed price estimates and removal quotes for a move if this is required by estimating the duration of the moving. In this case the final list of the items should be provided and cannot change during the move, also described access to the premises and parking situation. Our staff work fast and efficiently, ensuring the job is completed as quickly as possible, keeping your costs at a minimum.

    I was recommended Vanmates by 2 friends and I can see why. I used them to move my 3 bedrooms house (Oct 2019) and they were amazing. I asked them to dismantle and resemble all beds which was all done very efficiently. They also do a pack service as well as just small jobs. Can’t recommend them highly enough

    Was really pleasantly surprised about how great these guys were!! As they were cheaper I wasn't sure but they were so professional, also wrapping everything and moved things so quick!! Very happy with them. Most removalists have 2 hour minimum which I didn't need and it cost me less as they did it in less than 1.5 hours. Highly recommend and will use again!

    Don was awesome. On time, professional and great at moving furniture around. Hired him for a few hours to help me collect various gumtree purchases. Helped collect and also unpack everything at our apartment. Would give him 6 stars if that was an option. Will definitely use this service again when needed.

How does your hourly rate work?

We start the job on arrival at the pickup address at the agreed time. The hourly rate finishes when all your items have been moved and you are happy with that. Duration is being rounded up to the minimum time or to the next half an hour above.

How long will my move take?

We often get asked this golden question of moving. There are a number of factors that come into play when referring to the duration of your move including how prepared you are on the day, how much goods you’ve got, how well they are packed, what level you are on, are we using a lift solely for us or are we sharing, how far the van/truck is parked from the premises, weather conditions and also the distance between the premises you are moving from and to. If you wish to get an estimate on how long your move may take, please provide us with as many details as you can by sending an email on info@vanmates.com.au.

Can you help me assemble my furniture or setup appliances?

For sure! Our team will bring professional tools and can help to take apart and put furniture back together, although it would be good if you could let us know prior to our arrival. We can help you not only assemble your bed or table but also can install your new washing machine or put your television on the wall. There is no extra charge for this service, it is just done on the hourly rate as part of the time it takes to complete the job.

What factors may affect my move cost?

How prepared you are on the day and how much stuff you’ve got.

How well the goods are packed.

The amount of time it takes to load and unload your items.

The number of flights of stairs.

Distance of walk from the van/truck to the load or unload location.

Driving time from the load to the unload location.

Number of items weight more than 80 kg (side-by-side fridges, marble furniture, large potted plants, etc).


We are punctual and responsible with NO hidden fees. This means no shock surprises 🙂 We handle all your belongings with the utmost care and we provide Public Liability Insurance for peace of mind.
