Whybirds International makes any move to Australia a smooth one. Our attention to detail ensures every aspect of your international move is catered to.

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.

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

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.

If you are travelling en route we can arrange to store your goods in transit, or for longer periods and defer pending your arrival at your new destination. As members of the AMG Group we have owned and operated facilities throughout Australia where we can store your possessions in facilities featuring;

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

On final delivery, delivery will be completed on a date and time as agreed with you to your new residence – the furniture items placed in the respective rooms at your direction with ‘basic’ reassembly to those furniture items we dismantled. Please let us know if you require the cartons to be unpacked, this can take days to complete, and can be overwhelming deciding what goes where.

But our staff are here to help.

We have ladies who can take care of your unpacking for you, they can even get your whole home organised in just one day. Whether you’d like a little help with the kitchen or other priority areas, or the whole house unpacked for you, contact your move coordinator who can arrange to save you time and reduce the stress of setting up your new home.

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.

We have the knowledge, skill and experience to professionally pack your belongings, using approved materials and recognised techniques to provide the best protection throughout their journey. Our packers are trained to Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA) export packing standards, the highest in our industry, and are familiar with the very latest techniques. You will find our team courteous, helpful and respectful of your valued possessions.
