About Us

Welcome to Reid Removals, an Australian Family owned Removal business.
Whether you’re moving around the corner or interstate, Reid Removals can help make this the best move you’ll ever make. Our high commitment to quality, expertise and knowledge has made us the right choice for your move.

How it all got started:

We’re Peter and Pam Reid and we’ve been in business for 18 years, with Peter having over 38 years experience in the furniture removal and truck driving business. When Reid Removals was founded, we started with one truck and just the two of us, with a home office.  Business boomed and we were turning a lot of people away because we couldn’t take on any more removal work. So we decided to branch out and get a second truck; our big red semi-trailer.

Now we run five trucks, 2 trucks service interstate removals between Melbourne and Cairns every week and the other three trucks take care of the country runs and local removals in the Fraser Coast area.

Why Choose Reids?

So what’s different about us?

You get door to door service - we get it to your final destination safe and sound.  Another benefit of choosing Reid Removals is you don’t just get a pick-up date, you get a delivery date as well.  This is a huge thing when moving and surprisingly often overlooked.  What happens if you don’t get a delivery date?  Well often people book in with a removalist only to find that whilst the run was going in that direction for collection, the run for delivery won’t be anywhere near your preferred time frame, leaving your goods sitting in a depot far from where you intend to be.  So for a smooth move we give you a pick-up and delivery date so you know when it’s leaving and when to expect it to arrive.  This takes the guesswork out of scheduling for you, making for a smoother move overall.

How are we going to care for your precious belongings?

Peter has 38 years experience in the removal business and he understands the anxiety you can experience when needing to transport your belongings from one location to another;  after all, we specialise in antique and new furniture removal, we appreciate the importance of planning, care and attention to detail.  To that end we have customised our processes and trained our staff to take the utmost of care in handling your items.

Here are just some of the details on the lengths we go to, to ensure your goods are safe travelers:

  • We use heavy duty plastic bags over all fabric covered items, and remove them on delivery of your goods.  This provides protection against dust for any allergy sufferers.

  • We ensure we wrap each item individually with our furniture pads whether it is going around the corner, interstate or into storage.

What is our capacity?

Having recently moved to much larger premises, we can take care of your storage regardless of size, and when it comes to duration we offer long term or short-term solutions to meet your needs.  We also have space to store your caravan, boat, motorcycle or car. 

And what about those with a green thumb?  We haven’ forgotten you! We can certainly appreciate that a move of all your belongings may very well include much loved plants.  At Reid’s we can look after your plants whilst in storage, popping them under shade-cloth and watering every few days, at NO extra charge.

What About Storage Options?

At Reid Removals we also offer storage solutions, catering for a variety of sizes and needs.  So if you’re move is going to be in stages, then we can store your items until you are ready to have them transported on to its next destination.  The two forms of storage we have are:  containers which hold a normal household of furniture, and timber storage modules which are suited to a small amount of home storage.  All containers are water-tight and weather-proof, and have pest control done regularly with checks completed by an external professional multiple times throughout the year to ensure your goods are protected.

Well that’s enough about us.  As you can see we can provide an end to end solution that caters to your needs to have your gear safely arrive on time, looked after, and all the care and attention in-between.

TESTIMONIALS

We would like to say how impressed we were with the transporting of an Antique Wheelbarrow by both your company and KT Moller Removals to our son in Port Kennedy WA. Many of your staff were involved in suggestions of the packing etc to get this precious bit of cargo to its destination.
As none of you had seen it before this is what it looks like, Thank you and we will certainly recommend your company to anyone needing transport of furniture etc. I have also posted this on my FB, so hope it gives you some more business.
Many thanks

Bill and Anita Byrne.

Moving your fish tank - when moving your fish tank we require it to be empty.  This is so no water will leak out and damage any of your other furniture and if you have anything inside the tank it may crack. The best thing to do with your fish tank rocks is put them in plastic containers or heavy duty plastic bags tied up and boxed so they don’t spill anywhere during the move.
