Total gentleman. Waited over half an hour for a retailer to release goods. Was very concerned about getting to the next job on time, which shows how much he cares about maintaining high standards of service. This guy is a total professional. 7 stars!

We just need our washing machine moved and a very heavy, large desk. The distance between properties is only 500m but the desk is too heavy to put on my roof racks and the washer doesn’t fit in my car. As long as there’s two removalists and a good trolley it should be a task done in 30 mins.

3-Man Team Needed for Heavy Desk Relocation - 14th or 15th April


South Yarra VIC, Australia

10th Apr 2024

Date: 14th or 15th April (9-5 PM window) From: 561 Chapel Street, South Yarra (1-2 steps - not a flight) To: 65/15 Cochranes Rd, Moorabbin VIC 3189 (Ground floor) We require a team of at least three men and a truck to relocate a reception desk. This task demands careful handling and teamwork due to the desk's considerable weight and size. Desk Specifications: Dimensions: Approximately 270cm x 110cm x 115cm (LxWxH) Weight: Around 200kg, bulky and of an unusual shape Dismantling: The desk splits into two pieces; however, disassembly and reassembly will be necessary. Tools not provided - you will need to bring your own (refer to attached images for the specific tool required). Pick-up Location: There are a few stairs (1-2) to navigate at the South Yarra address. Delivery Location: The Moorabbin location is a commercial warehouse with a ground floor entry and a loading bay. Dollies and trollies are available for moving the desk into the storage unit. Requirements: Three-person team: This is non-negotiable due to the desk's size and weight. Own tools for dismantling: Please ensure you bring the necessary tools to safely dismantle and reassemble the desk. Timeliness and Care: Given the desk's value and the tight timeframe, we are looking for a team that is punctual, efficient, and handles items with care. Deadline for Task Completion: Before Monday, 15th April - Morning, Midday, or Afternoon slots available. It can be done on 14th April too.

Couldn't recommend these guys more. Exceptional customer service and the delivery guys are just cool. Perfect attention to detail. White glove service (there were no white gloves though lol)

Move heavy sideboard upstairs


Brunswick East VIC, Australia

18th Feb 2024

My dad built this sideboard, but unfortunately, we couldn't move it upstairs – it got very tricky where the piece needed to rotate and we were worried about our abilities and the glass staircase. It's probably about 60 to 80kg. I think if we were taller, we may have been able to lift it above the glass staircase on the landing. I need two very strong people to move it. Pictures of both are attached. My dad is extremely proud of this piece, so looking for someone to treat it and the staircase carefully! Open to offers.

Arrived earlier than expected and got the job done quickly! Super strong and would hire again for a similar task.
