The are two piles of lumber that need to go from one side of suburb to the other. Most of the wood is under 2m in length, but there are a few beams between 4-6m. The first pile is mostly decking stored in a gap under a tiny house. The pile is roughly 2m wide x 0.4m high The second pile is mixed use lumber in a wood rack which measures 1.8m high, 0.5m wide and 4m long. Both stacks are currently at the end of a driveway in a cul-de-sac. The driveway was recently traversed by a truck with a shipping container on it so it's navigable. They need to be moved to a short driveway with easy access a few streets away.

Cade was incredible. He was wonderfully communicative, polite, and professional. He arrived on time and did a 10/10 job moving and spreading the bark chip. Cade’s attention to detail was fantastic, the garden has never looked better, and he cleaned up the driveway where the chip was delivered. Cade is a lovely young man. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we’ll definitely be using him again - I can’t recommend him enough.
