Whybirds international Removals is Australia's oldest independent removal company in Australia and handles around 2000 inter-intrastate and local relocations annually.

With depots in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Mount Isa and as proud members of the AMG group, we cover the whole of Australia. We've been helping people with relocating to and from Australia for more than 160 years and have an unrivalled reputation for helpful, professional and reliable removals to and from Australia. Wherever in Australia you are moving, you can be sure we’ll deliver your belongings safely, securely and on time.

Moving Locally or Inter-Intrastate

From the moment your move is booked, we work hard to ensure every aspect is prearranged and ready for the big day.

Our Moving Consultants will provide you with:

  • A detailed Moving Schedule, including confirmation of dates for all services
  • A dedicated Move Coordinator, who will be your main point of contact in the office during your move
  • Insurance documentation and factual advice to assist you with your transit insurance requirements.

The strength of the Whybirds/ AMG partnership lies in the combined capabilities of independent movers located around Australia. Together we own and operate a national network, AMG, that is innovative with shared resources that cannot be matched. We operate a diverse range of clean modern vehicles to suit just about any situation, ranging from smaller prepacking support vehicles and removal vans to larger interstate vehicles, road trains and containers.

Storage

This could be for any number of reasons: a temporary interstate or international posting, a smaller property, or the need to move out of your current home before your new home is ready.

We take just as much care with your stored items as we do with those that we move.

You can rest assured that your valued belongings will be kept safely in the best possible condition, until you next require them.

All storage consignments are carefully packed into special storage containers sealed and stored in one of our convenient storage facilities. These storage containers and warehouses are clean, dry and secure, and a full inventory of your possessions is always provided.

On the day of uplift, all items for storage are carefully catalogued and securely labelled prior to being loaded. Special items such as billiard tables, pianos or large works of art are stored separately in purpose built bays. Lounge suites and arm chairs are enclosed in sealed protective covers and stored separately.

Should you require access to particular items, this can be arranged easily with prior notice. Notice is required as all AMG partners manage Border Force Bonded facilities so security and consignment control is foremost.

AMG welcome inspections of our storage facilities.

Whybirds Removals also provide Self-Storage at competitive rates AMG storage facilities feature:

  • Monitored alarm systems and patrolled security
  • Regular fumigation ensuring a clean pest free environment
  • State of the art electronic consignment control
  • Containerised storage, eliminating the risk of your items being mixed with other consignments

Planning Your Move

We believe that planning your move is essential, and we start that process with an initial visit to your home, or with a telephone consultation if you prefer. We’ll explain the entire removal process from professional packing, collection and shipment to final delivery and reinstatement of furniture and effects in your new home. Just as importantly, we’ll agree on an individually tailored personal moving plan with you and keep you informed and updated at all times. Our personal checklist and tips on moving day have been designed to help you on your way.

Insurance

I am only moving a few items, do I need insurance?

Even if you are only moving a few boxes, you should still consider taking out insurance.

Can I be insured if I pack my own boxes?

Because your belongings have not been packed by a removalist, our policy excludes the contents of these cartons in the event of any damages/breakages. Owner packed cartons can only be insured for Restricted Cover, which provides cover for the following risks only:

  • Fire and explosion
  • Lightning or flood
  • Overturning and/or derailment of conveyance
  • Collision of vessel, aircraft or conveyance
  • Crashing or forced landing of aircraft; stranding, sinking, or contact of vessel with any external object other than water Entry of water into any vessel, hold, container, lift, van or place of storage.

Non-delivery of owner packed cartons is limited to AU$500 unless an itemised valued list of contents is supplied prior to the commencement of the transit.

Should I take insurance while my possessions are in storage?

Yes. We can arrange an extension of your transit insurance to cover your belongings while they are in storage with us. The storage extension cover is available anywhere in Australia or for storage at any of our nominated agents worldwide.

I’m not sure I should bother with insurance.
Shouldn’t my home and contents insurance cover it? Or your insurance?

Ultimately, it is your decision. There are many circumstances for which we, as your remover, may not be liable to make good any loss or damage to your belongings; this is why we strongly recommend you take out transit insurance. If you think you don’t need insurance, you should ask yourself why you would insure your belongings in your house (where there is low risk), and not when they are moving – moving can be a high risk situation. You should certainly check with your home and contents insurer to find out if your existing policy covers the transportation of your possessions. Speak to your moving consultant, download our insurance documentation or contact us for more information.
