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.


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.

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.
