Wollongong to Brisbane Removalists
Moving from Wollongong to Brisbane can bring great opportunities, but can be a great challenge too. With just over 1000km between the two cities, the trip from Wollongong to Brisbane can take up to 12 hours by road. Wollongong is home to many highly educated graduates and qualified tradespeople, and a move to Brisbane can be a great way to reach your earning potential.
Wollongong and the greater Illawarra are home to some of the finest beaches and escarpments in Australia. Whilst Brisbane is known as a river city, many of it’s surrounding areas have beautiful beaches and mountain scenes that can make you feel at home after a move from the Gong.
If you need a Wollongong to Brisbane removalist, contact us at Premier Removals.
If you’re instead planning a move from Brisbane to the Gong, Premier Removals can help.
Wollongong is a vibrant regional city. With a population of 300,000 (and another 100,000 in the rest of the Illawarra), Wollongong has a great community, work opportunities and a world class university. Although Wollongong is a great city in its own right, it lies just 1 hour to the south of Sydney meaning residents have access to a huge range of amenities and job opportunities.
Premier Removals is your removalist for moves between the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast to Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Nowra.
The removals industry in Australia is totally unregulated. As a result is has attracted all manner of groups, from genuine, honest removalists, to shonky ‘backloaders’ and ‘removals agents’ that don’t even own their own trucks. Moving a long distance can be a stressful process at the best of times, but when you’re dealing with a shonk or an agent that has no trucks, you’re really taking a risk.
We have written an article about the dangers of backloading. Many times, ‘backloaders’ are not removalists that are genuinely running on an empty leg, but shonks that seek to take advantage of people in a stressful moment of their lives.
If you’re moving interstate, you’re best bet is to speak to a quality removals company and ask for a quote. You’ll get a guarantee of great service, and avoid having to deal with missed pickup and arrival dates, damages and loss, and overall bad service.

I booked 2 months in advance and was notified 20 mins before planned arrival that there was a "slight mix up" and would... be delayed. The delay was 4 hours. Turned up with a truck that was clearly sourced last minute and not fit for the job. Even though I had previously confirmed the truck would be big enough to fit everything in, it was not. I had to return the following day with a friend that had a suitable vehicle to finish the job. A simple moving job made very difficult for me. Very disappointed and would not recommend.Reply:Not being able to respond directly to your reply, I edit this review. I clearly stated that the garage also contained more furniture and was moving to a 4 bed house. You used a shipping container on the back of a truck. One of the bedrooms in my 4 bed house is completely empty of furniture so I wonder what kind of 5 bed house your truck would be suitable for? The small items your refer to were a 1.8m shelving unit, all plants and several house items that were enough to fill the hard canopy of a single cab 79 series Landcruiser. You made no effort to discuss the requirements of the move and therefore I assumed you were equipped to do so as my previous experiences with other companies supplied trucks more than capable. Would you like to comment on the 4 hour late arrival?read more
Premier did an excellent job moving my delicate antique furniture across Brisbane. Chris and Tony were assigned to my... job. Great team! Professional and friendly and they took great care of my furniture from the start to the completion of the delivery. Premier also stored some of my furniture which is a great service and saved me the stress of having to find a separate storage company. Thank you Premier.read more
A huge THANK YOU to Michael and his merry men. Professional, courteous, respectful, timely ... etc, etc, etc.Great... job, SUPER team, superior quality workmanship.We will certainly be recommending them to everyone.We can't THANK YOU enough.read more
Corey and Daniel were assigned to move our belongings from Carseldine to South Ripley. They arrived on time and were... extremely careful with our belongings. The job was completed to an excellent standard! All I have to comment is that the final invoice is calculated per hour, although the initial quote was for 5 hours, overall the job blew out to 8 hours. So if you do use these guys just be realistic that the job time may blow out. I do add that the job time didn’t blow out due to breaks and the like, both Corey and Daniel worked their ringers off and were excellent! I definitely recommend if you want a professional service! Cheap service ain’t good, good service ain’t cheap!read more
PRRMIER REMOVALS ARE A GOD SEND!!Had booked the job with another removalist and hours before the move they had... changed their booking confirmation to some other date and didn't advise me first. Needless to say I was salty AF and flipped every table in my house, then went next door and flipped theirs!!Like, who tf was I going to call at 9pm begging for their help for the next morning/arvo? Googled and found Premier Removals. Called him that late, spoke with Michael who managed to fit me in at the last minute and the process from there was unbelievably efficient.Michael and Jason turned up and just got it done. Moved a 3 beddy with ease and smiled the whole time. Can't even order a feed at a food court these days without customer service having a wince but these dudes were professional. Honestly if u want good service when it comes to moving your goods/house/life, spend your money with Premier Removals. Worth it!read more
Superstars! Hats off to Michael, Omar, and Jason they did an absolutely fantastic job with our move, and it was tough... (moving out of a 3 story walk up) with very difficult access. Turned up on time, took on the stairs without question, and got us moved out and moved in in 1 day. We have no hesitation in Highly Recommending Michael and Premier Removals to our friends, relatives and colleagues - 5 starsread more
Awesome service. I have now used Premier Removals on 3 occasions and on each move the service has been fantastic. The... first move was a large move (60% to storage and 40% to a CBD apartment) and I was immediately impressed with Michael wanting to understand my requirements and to keep the time and cost down as much as possible. The 2 teams with 2 trucks arrived on time and were extremely enthusiastic, professional and with humor. A very long and hot day but the whole move went very smoothly, everything was wrapped & handled carefully and with no damages. The other 2 moves have been small moves and at very short notice. Once again Michael has been extremely accomodating and has organised the moves to fit in our our busy schedule. Would highly recommend Premier Removals to everyone and we will definitely be using them again.read more
Michael and his crew were amazing! Finished the job in less time than quoted, were super careful with the... furniture/walls and were delightful to work with. Highly recommend and will be using them for my next move 🙂read more
I don't often leave reviews but this is one business that does deserve a recommendation. We've used them twice to move... house now, the first time with Michael himself and one of his guys, and the second time with another two man crew. Both times they have been efficient, punctual and accommodating. We have had zero breakages with them. I can't really ask for more than that really. I recommend them to all my friends now.read more
Michael was very prompt in giving me a quote. Moving can be stressful yet his service/website was so easy to use and... stress free. A well mannered gentleman with the communication quick with any questions or concerns I had. Definitely took the stress away when it came to finding a removalist.read more
Jason and James helped us move and we couldn’t have had an easier moving experience! They were fast, careful and had a... great sense of humour!Michael was so efficient and easy to deal with over the phone. The booking and payment process is seamless! Would recommend to everyone and will definitely use them again! - Trent & Paigeread more
I needed to move some items in storage and at my current flat to a new unit in the CBD. The difficulty in moving had to... do with collecting items at multiple locations and arrive to unload my items in a time window set by the new facility manager. I contacted Premier removals and Michael was very helpful in providing times and understanding my requirements. He was transparent with pricing when proving the quote.On the day of the move, Michael and his team were on time and provided clear communication about where they were during the process. The team were very professional handling items and careful. The team were enthusiastic, professionally dressed and approachable for conversation.I only had a few items to move, however they were well prepared with equipment to protect items during transportation and efficiently move.I don't want to move anytime soon but I will be definitely calling Premier Removals to make the job easier next time..read more
I rang Michael last minute because our other removalists let us down - be careful of those who promise but don’t... deliver. Michael was extremely professional and his crew provided 10/10 service. I could not speak more highly of them. Strong guys and very personable. They worked so hard in the heat. Thank you so much. You turned a stressful situation into a happy end result.read more
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Michael and Jason. They moved us smoothly and efficiently from Brisbane to... Sunshine Coast. They took the time to do a call out and discuss fixed vs hourly rate which was a great service. They were friendly, supportive, perceptive and caring of our needs, especially as we were moving with 2 children under 2. Cots, change tables and fridge were prioritised to minimise disruption. Amazing. They were supportive at the upload and offload and just kept on working through the heat of the afternoon. No damages or scratches to report, an easy move all round.read more
Fantastic service! Michael was friendly, punctual, went over and above to make sure my furniture arrived on time and in... good condition and kept me informed throughout the process. Also very reasonably priced. Cannot recommend highly enough! I’ll definitely be using again my next move!read more
Michael and Jason moved my family from Gatton to North Lakes in 8hrs (including the travelling). They made sure nothing... was damaged or even scratched. The fellas are very friendly and respectful. I would recommend Premier Removals for quality of work and the price was much cheaper than anyone else.read more
SO SO glad I found the guys at Premier Removals. Right from the start, Michael was so professional and easy to deal... with, he answered all of my questions promptly, provided me with great tips for moving and even came by to deliver some boxes, tape and packing paper to get us started! On the day, the two guys Jason and Josh did a fantastic job at moving all of our furniture from one high rise unit to another unit, lots of small corners and spaces, stairs, up and down but they did it with a smile on their faces and the everything arrived perfectly in tact and there were no damages to any walls or doors! We barely had to lift a finger!Couldn't recommend Premier Removals highly enough. If you want a company that understands how stressful and tiring moving can be and who will 100% help ease some of that stress and pain, HIRE THESE GUYS!!read more
Cannot say enough good things about these guys. You know when a moving company outs they much effort and time into the... little things on their webpage they've taken care of ALL the big things. Timely. Polite and respectful with us and our stuff. Not a nick or mark or scrape on the walls. Can't remember both of the guys names but particularly the kiwi chap with the big family - left me feeling like I could trust them to know what they're doing. Stop looking if you've reached their page. You're done. Ring them up.read more
I used Premier Removals after seeing a flyer in the lobby of my building and had a great experience. Jason and Adam... arrived early and ended up finishing quicker than the quoted time, but the best part was their attention to detail by leaving all my boxes in the correct rooms, hooking up my front loader and Jason promising my daughter he’d take special care of her dolls house. Thanks guys.read more
I am moving from my unit at Sandstone Point and had excess furniture which I wished to donate. However I live on an... upstairs level so how could I find someone to take my goods to Busy Fingers on Bribie Island?Fortunately I discovered Your Local Movers. Michael Leslie and Jason, bright, knowledgeable, considerate and punctual, took great care and were themselves, generous to Busy Fingers.My stressful time became a pleasant experience - I have no hesitation in recommending their services.read more
It was incredible, honestly the best and most stress free move I've ever experienced. There was so much detail, with... the wrapping and packing of items, care taken and interaction throughout the process. Every piece arrived undamaged, and was moved into a brand new home without damage any walls or floors etc. Will definitely use again and recommend to all.read more
Moving is usually a painful experience. Michael made the process smooth and breezy for me. Great communication,... pleasant attitude, and a whole lot of care taken with my possessions. The team took care of my move swiftly and smoothly at a great price. The experience has set a new standard for moving for me, no longer a painful experience! I highly recommend Premier Removals to you if you are looking for a smooth and breezy move too. You will not disappointed!read more
