PREDICTABLE MOVERS
A Little More

HomeMove has grown from one achy man in a beat-up truck in 2008 to Melbourne’s most-relied-on residential and business moving and storage company today.

Our director, Vlad Stoikovich, realized that too many Australians were stuck between two bad choices of removalists: overpriced moving corporations on the one hand, and unreliable small providers on the other hand. Vlad saw a need for a moving company that relied on brains as well as on brawn – one that blended the newest and best technology for booking, scheduling, and storage with the kind of old-fashioned customer service most people don’t associate with removalists.

We couldn’t have hired the finest people, trained them into the finest removalists, bought more trucks, added more warehouses, or invested in cutting-edge software if we were the typical box-stackers – who use their pay checks only to buy enough beer to grunt through the next move.

From the initial stages of planning to the final moments of the move, the entire process was marked by professionalism and efficiency. I wholeheartedly recommend Homemove Removalists for their exceptional customer service experience. The communication with Michael during the pre-arrangements was excellent. His responsiveness and attention to detail played a crucial role in ensuring a smooth transition from East Melbourne suburbs to West Melbourne. His guidance and support were invaluable in alleviating any potential stress associated with the move. On the day of the move, Val, Luke, and the entire team surpassed my expectations. Punctual, respectful, and highly efficient, they orchestrated the move seamlessly. Their commitment to leaving no mess behind showcased a level of professionalism that is truly commendable. What sets Homemove Removalists apart is their genuine care for the items being moved. Every piece of furniture was treated with the utmost care, reflecting a commitment to excellence that I haven't encountered elsewhere. In summary, my experience with Homemove Removalists has been the best I've come across so far. If you're seeking a smooth, stress-free, and professional moving experience, I highly recommend their services.

    Highly recommend Homemove Removalists for their customer service experience. Whilst I was unable to use them for my move due to the size, location and timing, Vlad was amazing in providing advice and recommendations. He spent time on the phone with me even though he was not going to get a sale, and his advice has proven invaluable. MANY THANKS VLAD!

    I've now used Homemove twice and can highly recommend them. The process is easy, right from the initial quote, to confirmation to the move itself. The team that did the move (Jack, Val and Adrian) were amazing. They arrived on time, nothing was too much trouble, they were quick and efficient. Overall a fabulous experience, one less thing to worry about during a stressful move.

    Most professional removalists in Melbourne calculate fees at an hourly rate which varies based on the size of truck used and the number of movers.  HomeMove offers various packages depending on the size of your move.  

    Hourly Rate Number of Men Type of Truck Vehicle Capacity 
    Medium from $203/ph 2 HomeMovers 4.4 Tonne Truck  21 cubic meters
    Large from $226/ph 2 HomeMovers 10.9 Tonne Truck  47 cubic meters

  • What is the cheapest day to move house?

    The weekends are always the most expensive days to move, so stick to Monday-Friday to get the lowest price.  

  • How to save money when hiring movers?
    • Plan your move on a weekday to secure the best rates.  
    • Work with a mover that allows you to help them.  This shortens the move time and saves you money.  At HomeMove, you can help our removalists as little or as much as you like. 
    • Plan your move during the off-season.  
    • Pack your own boxes to avoid packing fees or work with a company that has flexible packing policies.  HomeMove customers can help with packing as little or as much as they like. 
    • Another way to save money is to take advantage of HomeMove’s Box Buy Back.  If you buy your boxes from HomeMove, they will come pick them up for free when you’re done moving and pay you $1-5 for each box returned.   
    • Another way to save money is to buy quality used boxes.  HomeMove sturdy used boxes are 20% cheaper than new boxes. 
  • What size truck do I need to move a 3 bedroom house?

    For a 3 bedroom house, you will need a 10.4 Tonne Truck which has a capacity of approx. 36 to 47 cubic metres. 

  • How do I choose a furniture removalist?
    • Reading online reviews is an excellent way to identify the best options in your area.  Just be sure to look at a variety of online platforms to make sure you are getting an accurate picture of the companies’ success rates with customers.  HomeMove consistently receives top marks from their customers with a 5-star average rating across several platforms, including Google, Facebook, WordofMouth, and TrueLocal.  
    • Choose a mover that can help with disassembling and assembling your furniture.  HomeMove’s Home-Heroes carry basic tools and are happy to take apart and put back together beds, shelving, or any similar items.
  • How can I verify the reputation of a removalist company?

    You can verify the reputation of a removalist company in Melbourne by checking online review platforms, such as Google Reviews, Yelp, or Facebook, where customers share their experiences. Additionally, you can visit the company’s website to see if they have any testimonials or case studies showcasing their successful moves.

  • How long should removalists take?

    The length of time removalists should take depends on the size of your apartment or home and on how many movers are on the crew. Here are some examples: 

    A 1-bedroom flat typically takes 3-4 hours.
    A 2-bedroom house is usually 6-7 hours.
    A 3-bedroom house takes approximately 8-9 hours.  

  • What is the best moving company to use in Melbourne?

    The best moving company for you to use is a company that: 

    • Comes highly recommended, either through high online customer reviews or from friends and family. 
    • Offers adequate insurance for your move so that your belongings are covered in the event of any unforeseen problems. 
    • Offers a full-service move package.  It’s great to work with a company capable of handling every aspect of your move – from packing, moving, and unpacking your belongings, to storing the things you don’t need or don’t have space for right away.  

    With its high online customer satisfaction rankings, full-service moving packages, and insurance coverage, HomeMove is one of your best options for a trouble-free move in Melbourne.  

  • Should movers be Certified?

    While there are no mandatory certifications or accreditations for removalists in Melbourne, you can look for companies that are members of industry associations such as the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA). Membership in such associations often indicates a commitment to professional standards and ethics.

  • How far in advance should I book Home Move removalists?

    To secure your preferred moving date with Home Move removalists, it’s advisable to book as early as possible. Popular moving dates tend to fill up quickly, so aim to book at least 4-6 weeks in advance to ensure availability and a smooth moving experience.
