Professional Removalists Services

Over 100 years of Interstate Removals Hervey Bay Experience

Whybirds has been moving Hervey Bay families for over 100 years, with the company being founded way back in 1857. Hervey Bay families have moved with Whybirds generation after generation, finding our reliability and depth of experience second to none. We’re not sure, but it’s even possible that Whybirds moved the first family into Hervey Bay in 1866 when Martin Boyle became the first man to bring his family to settle the area. Since those times, Whybirds has steadily grown, and our trucking fleet sends containers full of precious household goods up and all around Australia every day. We move families from the very North to Queensland, to the bottom of the state and all around the world. You’ll see our trucks regularly traversing the Australian outback, and turning up at Aussie homes all throughout the Country.

Our unswerving devotion to local communities in the Queensland and Northern Territory areas have been a consistent part of what we stand for as a family-owned business, and has been that way since our founder began the business in Ipswich in 1857.

What do removalists consider when quoting for my move?

For any move, professional removalists will consider several factors when putting a quote together for you. And when you understand how this works, you can help to minimise your own costs by controlling any or all of these factors. The two main factors are always going to be the locations that you’re moving to and from, and the volume of items that you need to include in your move (which we measure in cubic metres).

For most moves, location and volume are going to account for the majority of the cost impact. However, there are some things that will also need to be taken into account. Your move consultant can talk you through those different factors, and that will make sure you get an accurate and reliable quote the first time for your peace of mind.

Additional manpower requirements, if needed, are one factor you may need to consider if you have large or heavy items that need removal. Examples where additional cost might be incurred are Pool Table moving, Piano Moving, or heavy garden ornaments moving. Our move consultant will also ask you about parking for our trucks, to ensure that our vehicles are able to park close enough to your home. If they’re not able to do that, then of course we have solutions, and we’ll turn up with the appropriate staffing and equipment on the day of your move to make sure it’s a successful day.

Furniture Removals and Storage

Importantly, if you think there is anything that will impact your move day, or that our removalists need to know in advance, just let your move consultant know and we’ll arrange the solutions well in advance. There’s nothing worse than finding this out on a moving day when all you should need to do is sit back with a cup of your favourite coffee and let our removalist team do the work for you.

Hervey Bay is impacted by the normal seasonality of the moving industry (which peaks from November to February each year). However, it can hit Hervey Bay a bit more than other locations due to the distances from other major cities, and relatively smaller volume of moves coming into and out of the Hervey Bay area. If you move from November to February, pricing increases during this peak season for all removalists. For families that are unable to move outside of that time due to school holidays, work-related moves, or other reasons, our best advice is to book in as early as possible with a reputable AFRA removalist and get your preferred days reserved to reduce any family stress. If you’re looking around at the last minute for a moving company in Hervey Bay during peak season, you may be disappointed, and you’re unlikely to find a reputable company with the capacity to help at a reasonable price point.
