Sometimes you just need a little Help.


Misc. infomation 29

Fixed Price:

Traditional sales people from other companies calculate a fixed price based on the estimated MAXIMUM time each part of your move will take. They always allow time for more than expected so fixed prices are costed to the maximum time it may take.

Hourly Rate:

With an hourly rate you only pay for what you use PLUS with MiniMovers we let you go a step further and help (if you wish) so you can further reduce the time taken. There can be a marked difference. We often come across moves that have been quoted in the thousands and we have moved the client in the $300’s.

We can supply a professional packer (or a team for large moves) to pack your belongings into boxes safely and securely.Whatever the MiniMovers packer packs, is also covered by the Guarantee, as long as we are moving it.

Once again, you have the total freedom, and may want to pack your personal items and have MiniMovers pack your breakables only- the choice is yours.

We move upright pianos and baby grand pianos. There is a once off surcharge of $120 for the heavy lifting involved with these items.

Please tell us when booking that you have a piano so we can send you a suitably qualified crew.

We ask that you give us 24 hours notice so we can stand down crews that would have otherwise been allocated to work.

If you do not cancel your booking and our truck arrives, there is a standard 1 hour minimum charge fee that will apply.

Preparation 10

Our trucks are the largest rigid body trucks that we can use in suburban streets. 90% of moves we can complete in one trip, however with special circumstances (property settlements) or if moving more than 20 minutes drive time from the pick-up address and the load exceeds a single load, we will do two trips or send a second truck.We do operate a fleet of large furniture pan tecs, so this is not usually a problem.

Of course! We strongly believe you should be free to control your cost.

With MiniMovers, the more you do, the less we do, the less your move will cost. You can take this to any extreme. It’s your choice if you wish to help or not.

Yes, our movers will do any “handyman” type dismantling / reassembling needed.

Our moving crews are experienced and will get in and move you as quickly and carefully as possible, but ultimately they can only deal with whatever you give them. If moving house (remember we can handle any size move) then most customers pack themselves and some have extra helpers. Extra advice on how to plan your move can be found at our Moving Hints page.

The best way to ensure a fast, efficient move is to make sure you are organised and as ready as possible when we arrive – all loose items packed into boxes and accesses clear.

You can further control the time the move takes by helping out as much or as little as you like – the more you do, the less time your move will take and consequently the more $ you will save. Packing boxes correctly can make a big difference too, so if you are packing yourself, please check our hints on how to pack the perfect box.
