Is it strongly recommended that you do not use any furniture removalists that are not AFRA (Australian Furniture Removal Association) accredited. AFRA provides support to clients that may be required when disputes on moving home arises. Without proper support, you risk having to take legal action against rogue Melbourne removalists should your relocation go pear shape, costing you much more. It is simply not worth the risk when moving house if/when you allow all your precious items to be handled by unprofessional moving companies who aren’t reliable.
Container storage with our 20ft containers is perfect if your residential, commercial or office relocation requires short, mid or long term storage. As long as your furniture items can fit in one or more of our 20ft containers, we can accommodate your move and help prevent double handling of your furniture. Our containers have a capacity of between 30m3 to 35m3 (cubic metres) of furniture and have been specially designed for the safe and secure storage of furniture and office goods. If you require large shipping container removals, we can provide multiple 20ft storage containers with our fleet of trucks and highly experienced and trained removalists, with a minimum of two men.
Our friendly sales representative will help you decide on the best solution for your needs once your furniture inventory has been finalised. We will then provide an accurate quote for our shipping container moving service.
We sell affordable packing boxes and / or packing materials for your move at unbelievable prices (shop online) with delivery to your door. Order as little or as much as you like.

Local hourly removal rates have a general rule that the pickup and / or delivery point is no greater than 30kms from the Melbourne CBD area by road travel. For internal reasons, our Melbourne removalists consider anything beyond 30kms as country moves. For this, we have a fixed price for travelling whilst only charging for the collective time to load and unload our furniture removal truck.
This way, you are only charged for the time that our reliable furniture movers work plus the fixed charge travel. It’s a very competitive and popular way to perform your move, as you are not charged for any travel stoppages including food, lunch or refuelling.
Please contact us to arrange a fixed travel rate, as it depends on the distance you are outside of the Melbourne CBD. You can also get an affordable Melbourne removalists quote using our removalist calculator.

At Transcorp Removals, we offer all inclusive door to door moving rates for our removalists in Melbourne. Unlike our competitors, we charge the same hourly rate regardless of the furniture removal truck size required.
Our clients find this the easiest and fairest method when moving house. You will also have the security of a nationally recognised award-winning removal company with over 30 years of moving experience. Our Melbourne removal teams are quick and very efficient when it comes to reducing your moving time!
Our competitive Melbourne local hourly rates are based on door to door and only charged to the nearest 15 minutes when the job is completed (after minimum charge), meaning that you do not have to pay for depot, call out, lunch breaks, road tolls, return or even credit card fees.
Be careful of added cost from our competitors. When you add all the potential extra moving charges noted above to a ‘seemingly’ cheaper hourly rate from our competitors (and their slow speed of moving and volume of breaks), you may quickly notice that you are paying more with our competition than moving home with us. More importantly, all our furniture removal trucks and containers come fully equipped with accredited staff, tools, trolleys and blankets to move you safely and efficiently.
Generally, when moving home within the Melbourne CBD area, you’ll find that the hourly rate will best suit your needs. This is mainly due to being charged for the time that the local Melbourne removal team take to perform your removal job. With Transcorp’s door to door rates, you’ll be charged to the nearest 15 minutes (after the minimum charge of 2 men for 2 hrs). This option means you pay for your moving time only.
With Transcorp local removals, you are quite literally paying for the removal time spent in performing your move without adding additional costs at the end of your Melbourne removal, such as depot, return or call out fees.
Provided that you have supplied the correct address and access details together with an accurate inventory of what needs to be relocated then at the time of quoting or booking with us, you may request an ‘expected’ charge based on the hourly rate. This will give you a fair indication of your moving budget. You can also view our “Estimate Tool” to get a Melbourne removalists quote online.
If you prefer a ‘fixed moving price’ so that you clearly understand your moving costs with no added moving charges, it’s possible to either request an on-site inspection in Melbourne by a qualified Transcorp moving representative or you can request the same over the phone. Just keep in mind that a fixed moving price may be slightly higher to cover for worst case scenarios such as parking issues.
A fixed price is generally the preferred method when a third party is paying for the move, i.e. a corporate or insurance move that requires a fixed price for internal purposes. It is also popular for clients who prefer to know their Melbourne move is fixed with no additional removal charges.
An hourly rate will in most cases be a slightly cheaper moving method, but we also understand and offer the fixed price moving method on a regular basis too. Please call our sales representative to discuss your individual circumstance and we can better advise you of the recommended moving solution if you decide to move with us.

Our Insurance accredited sales staff can offer comprehensive removal/storage insurance in the case of unforeseen accidents (fire, theft, transit damage, etc.) for damages that are out of our control and deemed ‘accidental’. We are able provide a certificate of insurance with you the nominated policy holder in case of a claim when moving and/or storing your contents whilst in our possession.
Important: If a removal company offers insurance on damages as part of their hourly rate or fixed price but can’t offer you a policy in your name, then they are not insuring your goods but rather offering ‘assurance’, which is only a promise they may make good on if goods are damaged during their move. Typically, their long terms and conditions (ask to see them) will aim to void claims with numerous conditions attached. They can make the process of dealing with damaged goods very long and arduous in the hope you do not follow through with your claim against them. Consider insurance carefully, as moving home is not a regular occurrence.
Transcorp’s qualified estimators (internal and external) can directly quote and arrange your insurance without the need to go through a broker or insurance agent. Check out our great insurance rates. We also now offer ‘blanket cover’ as an option! Regardless of how careful we are with our removals Melbourne wide, we want you to have peace of mind your belongings are properly covered – and insurance provides peace of mind.
