“By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail” – a quote from Benjamin Franklin, a man
almost as good at planning as we are.

Here at Robinsons, planning is the key to a successful move. Physically shifting boxes is only half of the process.


No idea how to start preparing? Our 3 planning stages have you covered:

Start early

We advise that you start planning early. Unless you’re only moving a few bits, we normally suggest you arrange a free survey as soon as possible. You may not have a moving date yet, but we still recommend that you contact us. We’ll discuss your needs early and advise you on methods, budgets and give any other support we can offer you.

Your home survey

By visiting you at home, we can understand which items are going where and gauge the environment we’ll be working in. We’d also love to find out how active you want to be in the moving process. For example, you might want to do your own packing. That’s fine by us, but we’re equally happy to take care of everything for you. Our mantra is Moving Your Way; we work around your preferences.

Your move plan

Next, our surveyor will discuss your move plan with you. Like all of our staff, Robinsons surveyors are fully trained and experienced. The surveyor will work with a nominated Move Manager – your main liaison throughout the move. Together they will avoid any pitfalls or stress on your part.

We know that things can still be outside of your control, even at the final stage. For instance, dates can change. As protection from any last-minute setbacks, we offer our clients a Cancellation Waiver. That’s one less thing for you to worry about!
