Santa Fe Wridgways Moves NRL Star Matt White

Matt White

Our Melbourne and Brisbane teams had an exciting few days of work last week, with NRL star Matt White relocating from Queensland to Victoria. Matt has left his old team, the Gold Coast Titans and will be playing in 2016 with Melbourne Storm, so along with his lovely wife Nikita he enlisted the Santa Fe team to help out. The couple utilised our packing services to help speed up the process in Brisbane, and spent a successful morning last Friday directing our crew during the unloading process at their new South Yarra home. We would like to thank Wridgways team members Michael Koeford, Matthew Pohl and Jamie Moody for a job well done in Melbourne, and for providing such a positive face for the company during this high profile move.

Red Kite Morning Tea

Red Kite

The Perth branch had a very successful morning tea and raffle for RedKite on the 23rd of September. Members of our Team have been participating in the Trade a Treat campaign which sees them giving up “something small, to make a big difference“.

Trading these items allows them to donate the money they would have spent on said treat, to help families facing cancer. Pictured above are Kristy Mone who gave up chocolate, Geraldine Babbe who gave up Red Bull, Jasmine Innes who gave up swearing, Lee Mirco who gave up coffee and Amy Firns who gave up hot chips. Well done team!

RedKite provides essential support to children and young people with cancer, and their families. They are there throughout the whole cancer journey, from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and until after treatment finishes.

Redkite receives no government funding. They rely entirely on the generosity of the community to provide these important services. We are very proud of our team for working with this great organisation to improve the lives of those living with cancer.

 

Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair

Darwin Art Fair

Our Darwin Branch recently took care of all of the packing and transportation of the incredible pieces of art sold at the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair. The Art Fair ran from August 7th to 9th and showcased some of the best artworks in the region created by over 2,000 emerging and established artists, allowing attendees to purchase the items at auction. The 9,500 people in attendance over the three days were able to view and purchase a range of products available, varying from paintings on canvas, bark paintings and limited edition prints, to sculptures, didgeridoos, fibre art and cultural regalia.

Mount Isa Community Events

Mount ISA Events

The town of Mount Isa has been very busy recently, with the annual 5km Cancer Council Colour Run and the Mount Isa Rodeo bringing in large crowds from right across the North West region of Queensland.

The Mount Isa Rodeo returned again this year and our Mount Isa Branch had the honour of supplying one of our trucks to be used as a float in the parade in the spirit of  this year’s theme “Showtime”. The Rodeo is the largest held in the southern hemisphere and attracts thousands of visitors from all over Australia and around the world, and offers a large monetary prize to attract the best competitors. The Rodeo runs over three days and finishes with the finals on Sunday.

The Colour Run was held out at Lake Moondarra and boasted crowds in excess of 1,000 people with plenty of locals showing up to raise money for breast cancer research.

Deb James, Administration Assistant, from the Mount Isa Branch took part in the Colour Run, raising money for a great cause and having a fantastic time. Well done Deb!

We supported “Paws, Hoofs and Claws”, a Mount Isa animal rescue and rehoming charity organisation run by a fantastic group of volunteers.

The float theme this year was a pun on ‘The Three Tenors’ and aptly named ‘The Three Terriers’. The floats’ dog face was created by Deb James, Administration Assistant in our Mount Isa office. Justin Anderson, our driver, and his wife Krystal  drove the group through the parade and their two year old son Kayne had a wonderful time waving at the crowd as they drove through. The group managed to win the best comedy float and Paws, Hoofs and Claws collected $1,000 from Mount Isa Mines and Rotary to assist in rehoming lost or abandoned animals. Well done to our Mount Isa Branch for your participation in such a worthy cause!

Santa Fe Wridgways Handy Guide to Transit Times in Australia

Would you like to know how long your personal goods will be in transit for before they arrive at your new home? Wouldn’t it make life so much easier to plan ahead of time! Well lucky you can, with the help of Wridgways. It is important to note that time frames for household deliveries around Australia depend largely on where your goods are being moved from and to and how much you plan to take with you.

Once you have determinedLoading Cartons Container Shipping Removals Relocation what you’re taking, making the decision of whether to have the sole occupancy of a 20ft or 40ft container, or whether you would prefer to share a container with other peoples goods going to the same destination is so much easier! Both options have their advantages; sole occupancy containers are sent to your new destination straight away so you will have much a shorter transit time from uplift to delivery. Shared containers are great if you don’t require the full container and would like to save some money by combining with other peoples items headed for the same location. Sharing a container can have a longer transit time for this reason as the other consignments may not be ready to be sent on the same day.

Here’s Our Guide to Transit Times for Sole Occupancy Containers:
