Professional Removalists Services

Over 100 years of Interstate Removals Rockhampton Experience

Whybirds has been moving Rockhampton families into and out of the area for longer than any other moving company, since we were founded way back in 1857. Rockhampton families have moved with Whybirds generation after generation, finding our reliability and the experience of our teams second to none.
Whybirds has steadily grown over the decades, now running a fleet of trucks and road trains sending containers full of precious household goods all around Australia every day. We move Australian families from the very North of Queensland, to the bottom of the state and all around the world. Our trucks travel the Australian outback daily, and turn up at Aussie homes all throughout the Country, almost every day of year.

Our ongoing commitment to local communities in the Queensland and Northern Territory areas has been a hugely consistent part of what we stand for 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 ask for a moving quote, professional removalists will consider a few key things when putting a quote together for you. Knowing what these factors are will hopefully help to minimise your own moving costs. The two main factors are always going to be 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. Secondly, the volume of items that you need to include in your move (which we measure in cubic metres) will be a significant on the cost as well.

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.

One factor that is taken into account is anything that needs additional manpower to move or lift. 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.

Furniture Removals and Storage

Our move consultant will also ask you about parking for our trucks. This is important for our preparation so that we ensure we bring the right equipment on the day. Although we prefer to be able to park our trucks securely very close to your home/door, if they’re not able to do that 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 in advance, just let your move consultant know and we’ll arrange the solutions well in advance. For any removalist, finding out that access or items to be moved are not what was expected on the day, this creates delays and likely extra costs. Our ideal move day is stress-free, with you witting back with a cup of your favourite coffee, letting our removalist team do the work for you as quickly and carefully as possible.

Rockhampton, like 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 Rockhampton 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. We do find that many families, for a variety of reasons, are unable to move outside of that time, so 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’re looking around in peak season for a moving company at the last minute, you may be disappointed, and you’re unlikely to find a reputable company with capacity to help at a reasonable price point that time of the year.
