Professional Removalists Services

Over 100 years of Interstate Removals Gladstone Experience

Whybirds has steadily grown over the decades, from a simple cart and horse operation in 1857, to a modern business with a fleet of trucks and road trains sending containers full of precious household goods all around Australia every day. Whybirds is privileged to have moved Australian families from the very North of Queensland, to the bottom of the state and all around the world. Our road trains travel the Australian outback daily with their precious cargo, and our dedicated teams turn up at Australian homes all throughout the Country, almost every day of year.

Whybirds has been moving Gladstone families into and out of the area for longer than any other moving company, almost back as far as when we were founded in 1857. Gladstone families have moved with Whybirds generation after generation, seeking our reliability and the experience of our teams as they trust us with their moves.

Our commitment to local communities in the Queensland and Northern Territory areas has been a cornerstone of our business since it started. Giving back to our communities is an integral part of who we area as a family-owned business, and has been that way since our founder began the Whybirds business in Ipswich in 1857.

What do removalists consider when quoting for my move?

When you’re ready to move, and you ask a removalist for a quotation, they need to consider a few key things when putting that quote together for you. Knowing what these factors are in advance, will hopefully help to minimise your own moving costs and make the moving experience as smooth as possible for you. The two main factors to take into account are always going to be

a) the distance between where you’re moving from and to, and to some degree the distance of those locations to the main operations hub of your removalist. And,
b) the volume of items that you need to include in your move (which we measure in cubic metres)

For most moves, location and volume factors are going to account for the majority of the cost impact. Apart from that, there are a few other things that can also affect the pricing of your move. Your move consultant can talk you through what those different factors might be, give you an understanding of if any of them might be relevant to you, and make sure you get an accurate and reliable quote the first time for your peace of mind.

Furniture Removals and Storage

Any items you have that are going to require additional manpower to move or lift need to be considered well in advance so that we make sure we have the right equipment, and enough staff on hand to manage the move process for you. You may need to consider if you have large or heavy items that need removal that cannot reasonably be moved safely by two people. Common examples where additional cost might be incurred are where pool tables, pianos, or heavy garden ornaments require moving as part of your move.

During your conversations with your move consultant, they will also ask you about the availability and convenience of parking for our trucks around each end of your move. This is important for our preparation so that we ensure we bring the right equipment on the day. Of course, we prefer to be able to park our trucks securely very close to your home/door, but if that is not possible, then we prepare accordingly, and turn up with the appropriate staffing and equipment on the day of your move to make sure it’s a successful day. Importantly, if you think there is anything that will impact your move day, or that our removalists need to know before they arrive, just let your move consultant know and we’ll arrange the solutions well in advance. For any removals company, finding out that access or items to be moved are not what was expected on the day can create delays and additional costs, both of which we would like to help you avoid by being as prepared as possible for your move. Our ideal move day is stress-free, with you sitting back with a cup of your favourite beverage, letting our removalist team do the work for you as quickly and carefully as possible.

Gladstone, like virtually all other cities in Queensland, is impacted by the normal seasonality of the moving industry in the summer (which peaks from November to February each year). However, it can impact Gladstone a bit more than other locations due to the distances from the larger cities on the East Coast. If you move from November to February, you should expect that pricing increases during this peak season for all removalists by at least 10%, and often more. Knowing that, many families still find that moving in the busy time of the year is the only time that works for them, in which case our best advice is to book in as early as possible with a reputable AFRA removals company, and get your preferred days reserved well in advance. If you have left it to the last minute, and you’re looking around in peak season for a moving company, you might get lucky if, but there is a strong possibility that you’re going to find it difficult to hire a reputable company at a reasonable price point that time of the year.
