Thursday Island Removalists Services


For us to determine the scale of your move, we will send one of our Thursday Island removalists to perform an in-house consultation. If that is not possible, you may consult with our moving team via phone call. The details you provide will be used to assess the requirements of the move and enable us to come up with a successful moving plan suited to your needs.


Preparing your items for a move is not as simple as it sounds. If you just throw some items in random boxes, you may find yourself in a messy room full of opened boxes when you go to unpack and you are trying to locate items for specific rooms. Your belongings should be packed in labelled boxes to make sure your items are easy to locate. If you need help, you can arrange for A & R’s professional packers to visit your home prior to the move to pack and prepare the items you wish to take with you.


With depots in Cairns, Townsville, Ipswich, Mt. Isa, and Darwin, as well as partners across Australia, we can help you get the job done. Whether you’re moving locally, interstate, intrastate, or remotely, you can count on our team of professional removalists to help you move to your new home with ease. Keeping your belongings safe and secure is our priority. Hence, we take the utmost care in loading/unloading and transporting your belongings to your new home.


There are instances when your new place is not yet ready for occupancy or you don’t have enough space for your belongings. Regardless of the reason, you can have your items stored in one of our storage facilities. Our concrete warehouses are equipped with state-of-the-art security systems to keep your belongings safe and secure at all times. If you need to retrieve or access your container, you may reach out to us and a member of our team will happily help you make arrangements to access your belongings.


Exit Clean

Doing an exit clean and preparing your previous residence for the new occupant, especially if you’re renting, can be time-consuming. While it is not always required, it can help you avoid any deductions from your bond deposit for cleaning and repair costs. We can help you arrange for a cleaning service provider to clean and prepare the place for you. With this, you can leave your old residence immediately after the uplift, stress free.

Pet relocation

At A & R, we understand that pets are considered part of the family. Hence, it is common for our customers to ask that their pet’s relocation is as convenient and comfortable as theirs. To do this, we have partnered with pet relocation specialists to make sure their needs are covered. Our team will be more than happy to assist you in making arrangements with our partners and helping you prepare the relevant paperwork for you to take your pet with you.
