Interstate Removalists: Moving Interstate to Brisbane

Are you considering a move to a tropical climate? Queensland is a stunning place to live with something there for every different style of family, be they young couples, upwardly mobile professionals, empty nesters or retirees.

Without the huge housing costs associated with Melbourne & Sydney, Brisbane offers excellent beachside living in a tropical wonderland. Median house prices are considerably lower than the southern capitals, making Brisbane a very attractive option for buyers or renters. With the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast as neighbors, Brisbane dwells in a location which is heavily touted as being the home of beach life. This is a very true statement.

Queensland absolutely abounds with tourist facilities. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the world. From many of the tourist charters operating along the Reef, you have the opportunity to swim with a myriad of fish while you are viewing amazing coral reefs. The Queensland government has been very jealous in their guarding of the Great Barrier Reef from man-made interference.

Along the coast from Brisbane north, you are simply overwhelmed with the number and array of beaches and tourist sites for the eager visitor. The rainforests which abound throughout Queensland show some of the amazing diversity which abounds throughout Queensland. From the sweltering humidity to the sheer magnificence of the trees, the undergrowth so thick you can barely see through it and the abundance of magnificent pools which all support their very own mini colony.

As with any removal, choosing the right interstate removalists to handle and look after your valuable items is absolutely critical.

Here are six points which you should be comfortable with before you make this decision.

1. Experience. Are they experienced at interstate removal?

2. Experience. Are they experienced with Sydney removal?

3. Insurance. Are they fully insured?

4. Can they fit your timeline?

5. Are you comfortable with the how they deal with you?

6. NEVER make this important decision based on price alone.


As your furniture and goods will be traveling extended distances to arrive in Brisbane, good packing becomes even more important. You may choose to pack yourself (which will obviously be cheaper) but you will need to ensure that you use removal cartons only and that all breakable items are wrapped in paper to protect them.

The removalists rely heavily on the ability of the packers and need to be comfortable to stack cartons up to five high or use them as building blocks in the load. A brief rule of thumb is that the average house will have one “fragile” carton only.
Otherwise, the professional team at South West Removals can pack for you.

Do I need to take this furniture?
Interstate removal to Brisbane can be expensive, therefore it can present the ideal time to take a serious look at what you are planning to take. Culling old or unwanted furniture can not only save you money on your removal but can also generate additional cash to spend during your relocation.
