Free in-house consultation and survey

With over 50 years of experience we are here to help you and reduce your anxiety of moving internationally. Crown’s highly trained consultants have many years of experience organising and managing successful international relocations. Our people are customer focused, highly personable with the skills learnt over many years to ensure you “Go Knowing”.

They will share their knowledge on relocating from Australia and you will be well prepared for your forthcoming international move. We strongly recommend arranging a free in-house consultation and survey to best understand your specific needs.

This consultation is designed to assist us in providing you an accurate service proposal while also identifying any special requirements or specific customer needs. It is also an opportunity for you to ask the many questions you will undoubtedly have.

During the consultation we will create a detailed electronic inventory of the goods to be moved. The total volume of your consignment will be assessed and  any “high value” or “fragile” items will be identified that may require special care and packaging. Our advanced operating system ensures all information is shared with our packing team in preparation for moving day.

Our comprehensive door to door service proposals are given without any hidden international moving costs and unwelcome destination charges and duties.

Wrapping & Stowing for a Safe International Move

Your complete satisfaction is our primary goal. We take responsibility for the safety of your belongings door to door. You can be confident that our international removalists are highly trained and experienced and understand the value of your belongings. They wrap, pack and load them with care and we try to avoid unnecessary handling to reduce the risk of loss or damage.

To ensure items are easily identified at destination, colour-coded labels are used which correspond with the rooms from which they were removed. It’s a unique way of helping ensure a smooth delivery.

International Removalists Packaging

Crown’s packaging is manufactured from high quality materials and our recycling program ensures environmentally friendly practices. High value or fragile items whether large or small can require custom packaging and crating. These are designed and built for purpose prior to your moving day. The following are examples of the meticulous care taken when packing your household goods.

  • Furniture - Cushioned Craft Paper is used for the wrapping of furniture pieces travelling overseas and the use of plastics on leather or polished timber furniture is avoided. Fragile or high value items are wrapped and custom crated to ensure protection.
  • Small Fragile Items - From glassware to china, large or small, each item is individually wrapped, cushioned and carefully boxed.
  • Large Fragile Items - Tissue and corrugated bubble-wrap are essential for added protection. Contour-packing allows for safer handling and space-efficient loading.
  • Clothing - Lay-down cartons keep clothes flat and save space. Upright wardrobes let coats and suits remain hanging in transit. Please make sure that your clothes are clean and dry prior to packing.
  • Audio Visual - Plasma and LCD TV screens are protected and require special purpose made packaging.
  • Paintings and Prints - Paintings and prints are typically high value items. Measurements of these items are taken during the survey and purpose built crates are used with the precise measurements of each item. Paintings and prints are wrapped carefully before being slid into each crate.
  • Rugs - Rugs should always be rolled, not folded (length permitting). They are wrapped in porous material to allow rugs to breathe. Desiccant packets are used to keep carpets moisture-free whilst in transit. Similar to your clothing, rugs should be clean and dry prior to packing.

What our clients are saying (Scroll for more)

My wife and I were faced with the daunting task of relocating, upon contacting Crown Relocations New Zealand, we were somewhat relieved by the prompt, professional and friendly service. The Crown team from New Zealand kept us regularly up dated with the progress then passed us onto the Brisbane team who were equally informative and friendly, our belongings were delivered to our address by members of the Brisbane team who unpacked and assembled the furniture.

The experience was completely stress free, I would strongly recommend as I have already done so with people I have come in contact with to use Crown Relocations.

A huge thank you to Crown from Karen and Terry Greig.

Derrin is a fantastic account manager and I simply cannot fault him. Moving internationally is extremely stressful, but Derrin coordinated my packing / move so that it was very stress free.

Robyn is the best professional consultant I have ever come across in any field, she is the ultimate and consummate professional, she is a genuine and a caring consultant with a calming influence on her clients. Robyn has helped me and kept me informed every step of the way throughout the moving process, I always felt better after speaking with her, and because of that my confidence in her was immense, this has helped me to concentrate on the many other things I had to do other than moving, she is a true asset to your company.

International Removalists Checklist

Whether or not you are a seasoned international traveler, preparation and attention to detail will certainly ease the stress of relocating. Moving internationally can be complex with numerous tasks to be attended to.

Without a clear plan of activities your anxiety is likely to increase as your moving day gets closer. Leveraging Crown’s experience, you can create a comprehensive timetable of tasks that considers every minute detail. Having time related tasks such as 90, 60 30, 7 and moving day groupings is particularly valuable.

Analysing the complexity and difficulty and whether tasks require outside assistance will determine where in the time frame they fit. The earlier you engage Crown the better equipped you will be with your timelines.
For more detailed information, please visit Moving House Checklist.

Securely Storing Your Belongings

If you require short or long term storage for items that you do not wish to move, Crown’s facilities provide the highest levels of security.

Licenced by the Australian Customs Department under strict guidelines your goods will be in safe hands.

We will pack your belongings in exactly the same manner as we would as if you are moving them to an overseas destination. They will be stored in purpose built “pods” within Crown’s own facilities.

Moving Internationally with Children

Moving with children can be particularly difficult and stressful. For your children, leaving familiar surroundings, friends and family and heading to an unknown place can be traumatic.

Crown has a range of children's giveaways and destination guides that are designed to help children better understand the country they are moving to. Well written and designed by many international schools they can bring your destination to life by adding some excitement to your overseas move.

Managing the Risk of Moving Internationally

Crown's crews exercise care and professionalism when packing, transporting, delivering and unpacking customer goods and are proud to have one of the highest rated records for claim-free relocations in the industry.

Even though Crown takes every precaution to eliminate risk, it is important to note that relocating personal belongings comes with inherent risks. Crown offers CrownCare, a comprehensive transit protection program, offering a variety of policy options to suit.
