Looking at moving to Brisbane? Hire one of our experienced Brisbane removalists today.
1. What if my new home isn’t ready to move into yet?
Uh oh – you’ve arrived in Brisbane, but your new home isn’t ready for you to move in. That’s okay! We can store your belongings for you. We have secure storage facilities all over Australia, including in Brisbane. Your movers will be able to safely store your belongings until you are able to collect them. We can also deliver them for you if required.
2. Which roads in Brisbane are toll roads?
There are a few toll roads in Brisbane. Most of these are in the CBD, and you can avoid them if you’re willing to travel a tiny bit longer. The main toll roads are the Clem Jones Tunnel and the Go Between Bridge. A little further out, you will find the Legacy Way and the AirportLinkM7. The Gateway Motorway and the Logan Motorway are also toll roads. You can set up an online account to pay for tolls.
3. Are WridgWays accredited and insured?
All our removalists are accredited with the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA). This means that we have the necessary training, equipment, vehicles, and premises to carry out professional moves.
4. How are you going to transport my belongings?
Our Brisbane removalists use a range of different methods to transport belongings. This includes rail, sea, air, and truck. The type we use for your move will depend on how much you’re moving and where you are going. We will ensure that we find the best method to suit your needs.
5. Where is your depot based in Brisbane?
You will find our Brisbane depot in Acacia Ridge. This isn’t far from the CBD and is easy to access if you ever need to visit us on-site. This is where your items will go before we deliver them to your new home upon arriving in Brisbane.
6. Do I need to be present when the removalists are in my home?
When we are loading and unloading your goods you, or a representative over the age of 18, will need to be present. It’s worth being home so you can direct the removalists if there are any items that are particularly fragile. You can also help them work out where your belongings need to be placed in your new home.
7. How long will it take to transport my belongings to Brisbane?
Your removalists Brisbane will try to get your goods to you as soon as they can. The distance you are travelling will influence how fast they can transport your belongings. At WridgWays, we always strive to use the safest and most efficient methods to transport your goods.
8. How can I travel from the airport to the Brisbane CBD?
No matter where you live in Brisbane, travelling to the airport is easy. A train runs all the way from the Gold Coast to the Brisbane Airport, so you can easily catch the train. Airport parking is available so you can also choose to drive. You can get there on via the Airport Link or the Gateway Bridge if you’re in a rush, or you can use the M1.
9. How will I be able to find out how my move is progressing?
Our removalists will be contactable throughout your journey. The operations team will keep you updated on how your move is progressing. You will have a Move Manager with you for the entire journey who you can call with any questions or queries. If you really get stuck, then you can also contact the Brisbane office in Acacia Ridge on (07) 3373 9300.
10. Does Brisbane have daylight savings?
You will find that Brisbane, and the rest of Queensland, doesn’t have daylight savings. Brisbane operates on the Australian Eastern Standard Time (GMT+10), so when other states turn their clocks forward in summer, you won’t have to. Brisbane can get dark during winter, but you will find you’ll get plenty of long summer days as well.
