An Australian Family-Owned Company Since 1985
Brisbane 1985: Mike and Linda O’Hagan, who at the time owned furniture shops in Brisbane, had friends and customers asking them to help with their local, short-distance moves using the company delivery vehicle.
As a result, a new business and a new way to move “just up the road” is born. MiniMovers Local Moving System, the perfect solution between hiring a truck and using a full-service removal company.
Mike and I, Linda O’Hagan, revolutionised “local, short-distance, direct door-to-door moving”. We were the first to develop the hourly rate system, where you pay only for what you use while allowing you the total freedom to help as much as you want. Yes – you can control the costs! Before we came along, the only option, other than breaking your back to do it all yourself, was an expensive, old-fashioned, fixed-price company.
Then we found another need in the market – proper moving boxes. So we created the perfect box for moving and added a unique buy-back system to help both your pocket and the environment. Now things were really picking up and we saw a need for specialised moving trucks. We developed our own customised trucks – the largest in local moving, for full house or office moves, and designed for easier, quicker access.
Never ones to rest on our laurels, we then changed employment too. In an industry full of subcontracting, we chose to employ inexperienced people and train them the MiniMovers way. We were the pioneers in this field, so we already knew – there is only one way to move furniture – the MiniMovers way! We were delighted and surprised to receive an award from the Federal Government for our proven results in training. We then added pre-packers to our Team to help you even more! At this time the famous MiniMovers employee breakfast also came into being. This gives our employees the energy at the start of the day to do the best job possible for you!
The added bonus of creating the World’s Best Movers is the ability to provide improved workmanship. This brought about another game changer – our written No Damage Guarantee – if we damage it we WILL fix it. Together with an exceptional process that fixes our rare mistakes – fast. MiniMovers surged ahead in popularity – we expanded into the Gold Coast, then Melbourne & Sydney, followed shortly after by Adelaide and Perth.
Customers thanked us by making MiniMovers the largest and most recommended local mover in Australia. Today, over 200 Australians are directly employed, facilitating, and handling over 20,000 moves a year both locally and interstate. Since the early 2000’s (as far back as our current records allow us to search), MiniMovers has employed and trained over 9,000 employees!
We handle every move with proper care and we extend our help to our customers by giving them the best moving tips from professional and accredited removalists in Australia. Included are some guides for packing, home moving, office moving, and the things that you should consider when doing a relocation.
Our customers’ feedback is extremely important for everyone in our team in making sure that we always give quality moving services by meeting their needs and expectations. We take them seriously as we do our best to improve the services that we offer from their booking until the end of the move.
