We are regrettably increasing our prices as of today, the 1st of July 2019.
This decision was not an easy one to make. We are all still experiencing the flow on effects from the floods earlier this year and people will continue to experience these effects for a while longer yet. Real estate is at a premium, homes have been lost, jobs have been lost, businesses have been lost and a lot of people are still finding their feet.
Being locals we understand the problems people face with our local economy and how important value for money is. Not just in the items we buy but in the services we need.
We are proud to say that we are setting ourselves apart as an industry leader. With keeping our business small and focused on being local we are able to give our customers specialised service.
We know the differing styles of homes and we know access issues. We know how to park a truck in a tight street and navigate castle hill.
About Town Removals work with local businesses, organisations and government. We will always strive to provide the type of service you’d expect from us.
Just because we focus on delivering exceptional localised service it doesn’t mean we cannot help you when it comes to moving elsewhere. We can direct you to other fantastic people in our industry who we know will look after you like we do.
Our price rise is necessary because of what we do. As a removalist we are required to have the necessary insurances so we can move the grand piano’s that we love to do, we have storage facilities that are fully secured and alarmed, we have trucks that are fully insured and registered in Queensland. We undergo regular maintenance checks on our vehicles and equipment to ensure our fleet is working optimally and safely. That’s just for starters. We rent a shed in a central location that is owned by another local, we use locals for our signage, our security and our maintenance.
We are committed to Townsville and we will endeavour to always put Townsville first.
So without further ado our new rates from today, the 1st of July 2019 will be as follows:
2 men, 1 truck: $165 p/h
3 men, 1 truck: $210 p/h
4 men, 1 truck: $250 p/h
Our discount for emergency services, defence and seniors will continue to be 10% and will only be offered on our 2 man and 3 man rates.
2 men, 1 truck: $150 p/h
3 men, 1 truck: $190 p/h
There will continue to be a minimum of a 1 hour charge and all of our charges are GST inclusive and eftpos and card facilities will continue to be supplied without a surcharge.
Saturdays are also charged out at the same prices and again with the 1 hour minimum.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support. Please contact us if you have any questions.
