Removalists in Collaroy

Most locals live on the Northern Beaches not because they enjoy contributing to NAB and Westpac’s profits with huge mortgage repayments but because, you guessed it, they like the beach. Well, Collaroy residents have the second longest beach in the whole of Sydney to spend the weekend on. It runs north for 3.6 kilometres from the man-made ocean rock pool just to the south of Collaroy Surf Lifesaving Club right up to North Narrabeen, known colloquially by surfing locals as “Northy”.

The Origins of Collaroy and the Enduring Legacy of the SS Collaroy

In fact, before the SS Collaroy ran aground in 1881 due to poor visibility there was no Collaroy; the whole area, where approximately 8,000 people now call home, was considered part of Narrabeen. The anchor from the paddle steamer, which took its name from a sheep station in the Hunter Valley, is proudly displayed in the front grounds of Narrabeen Public School & can be seen by thousands of commuters travelling daily along Pittwater Road.

Apartment Moves and the Unique Terrain of Collaroy

Unless we include Collaroy Plateau, which is predominantly house dominated, most of our moving jobs in Collaroy are apartment moves. The smaller trucks from our fleet are a familiar sight in the streets that intersect Pittwater Road; Stuart Street, Fielding, Ramsay & Fraser Streets are full of unit blocks and parking is at an absolute premium, completely unsuitable for our larger 11 & 12 tonne Isuzu trucks.

Factors Influencing Moving Expenses in Collaroy

Local moving on Sydney’s Northern Beaches is all about the time it takes to get things done. So, when someone asks how much does it cost to move, unfortunately, there is no straight answer, even a small 1 bedroom unit move in Collaroy can vary tremendously. For example, if a client is well packed up, organised & ready to be moved and the access is favourable our experienced removal men will be able to get a lot of stuff moved in a short space of time. However, if the client has a lot of small things, say, a variety of different size boxes and bags (moving company’s call these “single carries”) and the access involves a long walk with stairs or a lift, the time it takes to load can double or even triple.

Flexible Moving Solutions: Hourly Rates, Tailored Services, and Budget-Friendly Options in Collaroy

For this very reason, we do not offer a fixed price for local moving, all of our work is on the hourly rate. If working with a smaller budget we can concentrate on moving just larger items and the cost of moving home will reduce considerably. Need help packing & dismantling furniture, we will be there with boxes and tools. You simply tell us what you want done and we will accommodate.

I used this team for an office move. Very easy to book, guys showed up exactly on time and were extremely professional and helpful. They knocked the job over in great time and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks Shane and Felix for all your efforts!

From first enquiry, Rob & Michael were very friendly & provided good advice. On the day, Sean & Harry turned up on time & didn’t stop working. They took extra care over making sure things wrapped & secure. Great attitude & don’t know how they lifted some things. Wet weather didn’t slow them down!! When got to the storage facility, everything was packed securely & safely, then Michael ensured the goods were put in the right place & size storage . 10 stars to Sean & Harry. Good rates with no hidden charges!

We had an easy and stress free move with Man and His Van and would particularly like to thank Sharkie & Guido. Nothing was an issue as they went about their job in the most professional way. We would definitely use this company again and highly recommend them.
