Customer testimonial

Hi Scott and Dean,

Just wanted to send an email to let you know how great your team is!  I have used your company 3 times in the last 10 months – for my big move from Norwood to Newstead last June, (Gary, Mick and Nick) for pick-ups and drops off and a number of items to my daughter’s flat in Hobart in February, (Kelvin and Damean) and today, moving furniture from Store-It-Safe to my home in Elphin Road (Kelvin and Nick). 

All the boys have done an amazing job each time- always prompt, obliging and with a smile. 

I don’t envy them the heavy lifting – not an easy job, as well as the manoeuvring of furniture around tricky corners at times! 

Thank you again and am always happy to recommend your company to anyone who asks.



Hi Dean,

I had a very good experience with the whole process moving home contents from Hobart to Melbourne.  Your removalists were excellent and took great care with everything especially the antique furniture.  There were no damages and everything arrived in perfect condition.  The men were very respectful as regards to parking areas and body corporate regulations as I live in an apartment block.  The phone staff were also excellent, very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for safely looking after my possessions and making the move for me stress free.  I shall not hesitate to recommend your service to others.

Warm regards


Hi Scott

Garry and the other young man (his name escapes me) were both fantastic. As usual nothing was too much trouble. Everything was moved carefully, methodically and most importantly arrived in tact.

They were both polite and extremely helpful. I will have no hesitation in recommending Atkins Removals to anyone. You always do a great job



Hi Dean

As always, I am happy to endorse the service provided. The two men were fantastic and nothing was too hard for them.

Given the sensitive nature of the move they were understanding and extremely helpful.

Please pass on my thanks to them, it meant a lot.



Our move went extremely well and we appreciate the fine service both from Ryan Removals in VIC and your team on this side. We were extremely pleased and if you need us as a testimonial, we are happy to receive a phone call or email from prospective future clients.

We’re settling in very nicely, love our place and are loving living in Grindelwald - even the frosty weather has been grand!

Kind regards,

Susan and Rob

Dear Dean

Thanks very much for the service you provided in our absence at either end of the trip.

It is comforting to know that our trust in you was well placed. You did what was promised on schedule and provided the flexibility we needed in an unusual situation.

Thanks again


Excellent service friendly guys very helpful!!

Thanks a lot.

Cheers Dianne

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the email, can I say that your service was outstanding. From our first phone call with Dean and your visit to quote the job to the three guys moving the furniture.

Can I say a big thankyou to the guys who carried out the work as their manner and work ethic was 110%, and will certainly be recommending your company to all people I talk with who require removalists.

Thanks again,
Garry Summers

Re: Relocation from Beaumaris, Vic to Scamander, Tasmania.

Rory and I would like to extend our sincere thanks for all the help from your company on our recent relocation from Victoria to Tassie. A SPECIAL THANK YOU to your removalists, Josh and Igor, who so artfully ‘packed us up’ for our move South. To Mark and Garry for their expertise in unpacking and ‘settling us in’. We can’t thank you boys enough! We would have no hesitation in recommending you in the future.

With fondest regards and thanks sincerely,
Lisa and Rory J

Thank you, Scott - we were very happy with our move & the boys were extremely helpful and obliging. We will be relocating to Exeter in February [hopefully] & will need your assistance again.

Many thanks & regards,

Hi Scott,

Thanks ever so much for looking after and handling our life possessions with care. Without any doubt, we would highly recommend you guys to family, friends and colleagues. Please pass on to your friendly staff and removalist many thanks.

I am writing to let you know how pleased I am with the work you and your organisation did in relocating my household furniture from storage in Northern NSW to our new home in Longford TAS. I selected you because of the personal recommendation of a friend who had used your firm and was very happy. My furniture arrived in good condition, and I was kept informed regarding the progress from collection to delivery. Not only were your charges reasonable, but I was surprised (amazed even) to receive a phone call to inform me that I had overstated the volume to be shipped and that you had reduced the charge to me by $500! That has to be a first in integrity. Because of the care you took, the high level of communication and the cost, of course – I have no hesitation in recommending you strongly to my friends. Please use this unsolicited testimonial any way you like.

I would like to express our thanks for the highly professional, friendly and as far as possible stress free job with our recent move from Sydney to Rosevears. This is the third occasion our friends and family have used Atkins Removals and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone as being great value for money and extremely nice people to deal with. The attention to detail and the ability to cope with minor variations and client requests made our experience as pleasant as possible. Even their follow up service for what we mistakenly thought was a missing item, was courteous and helpful.

Thankyou Atkins Removals for a job well done.

Dear Atkins Removals
We would like to compliment you all on the professional and efficient service you provided us with for our move from Ballarat, Victoria to Dromedary Tasmania. We originally received three online quotes for the move from three different companies. Although your quote was not the cheapest, we were impressed with the way it was followed up with a courtesy phone call from Scott to gain further details as to particulars of the move.
In the lead up to the move, regular email and phone contact ensured us that all was progressing well, with Scott and Dean quick to any enquiries from our end.
On the day of uplift, despite the miserable weather John, Nathan, Josh and Igor took great care with our belongings. The same can be said of Dean, Tim and Sam who co-ordinated the drop off of our furniture at Dromedary. I am pleased to say that not a single item was damaged or broken!
Your attention to detail, careful handling and friendliness took much of the stress out of the move for us. We wish to thank you all for the friendly and professional service you provided and we would not hesitate in recommending your services to others.Should we ever need to move again we will definitely be calling you.Thanks for all your help guys!

Kind regards
Fiona and Sam

After over 20 moves in our lives, this has been the best move we have had. Personal service with care and attention throughout by all the staff. Amazingly only one small insignificant pot broken out of our large inventory. First time that has happened. They went to extraordinary lengths. Highly recommended.

I must say one more thing. You have in Geoff Smith a real asset for the company, and I can't praise his efforts for us enough. Your concept too of having the same person to pack and unpack is a differentiating factor between you and your competition, especially the big ones.  In the past, this is where the big ones go wrong, when the unpackers don't understand how it was packed in the first place.

Anyway, my compliments to Geoff and I will recommend you to others.

Best regards,
Keith and Jenny

Thank you for your follow up letter.

We have been nothing but satisfied all the way through our business with you. Thank you to all involved. Starting from the boys you sent out to Winkleigh to assist us with the packing, about 6 months ago, to the communication throughout the long process, (especially when it was found that the 20ft. was over weight!), the seemingly 'simplicity' of the job when picking up both containers from the new owner’s place (where we once lived), the delivery of 'extras', which had to be removed from the first container plus the friendly assistance from the two truck drivers, especially Dean, upon arrival here in North Isis, Queensland.

You have no idea how much we appreciated having our goods and chattels delivered to us in such a stress-free way. And yes! We have already mentioned to a few people that we would recommend your company. I know we paid for the service, however, nothing beats that personal touch, thanks to both Scott and (office) Dean. Also Alice, always lovely to speak with and I'm sorry don't know the other lady's name at the front desk, always very pleasantly helpful and knowledgeable.

What I appreciate most is the way we were assured by Scott before we left that the job could be done (for a price) and all the way through, nothing changed that assurance. We didn't have to worry about how the containers would be loaded or unloaded. (I think Dean did all that!) Talk about peace of mind!

We are slowly settling in to our new area, very similar to Tassie in some ways; the greenness, the rolling hills, the cattle and, of course, the people. Childers is a lovely little community, where everyone speaks, smiles and passes the time with you like they have known you forever. We are joining in community activities and getting to know heaps of people. We have made many changes in our life over the years, and now we can boast that we have lived in each state!

Keep up your excellent standards within your business.

We have no reason other than to be very positive about our experience with you all. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
David and Patsy
