    They were on time, the van was big enough to fit everything, the boys were very efficient and did the job within the discussed period of time, no extra charges, no hidden costs. They respond better to text rather than phone calls.

    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.

    The guys were great! I had a last minute move and I was so stressed but from the moment I contacted they were so helpful and responsive and were able to book me in at such short notice, the updates through the day were great and the guys arrived on time and with a smile and were very careful and professional with all my belongings and made what seemed such a stressful move a quick and seamless one!

How many packers do I need?

Generally, each packer is able to pack or unpack 3-5 boxes per hour. You can decide if you’d like everything done or just need a fixed amount of time for us to help you. The majority of clients choose to book a fixed number of hours and then extend their booking if needed.

Do you offer moving boxes?

We do! Instead of old fashioned cardboard boxes, we offer environmentally friendly plastic moving boxes which are sturdy, stack securely and have been purposely designed for moving. No need building or taping boxes, simply close the lid and you’re done. The strength of plastic boxes keeps your items more secure during the moving process. Also, they help so much when your moving day is rainy.. Interested? Read more.
