Default Man and a van (Gold Coast) recommendations?

Can anyone recommend a man and a van (or 2 men!) service on the Gold Coast? We are moving from our unit to a duplex 10KM down the road. We don't ave loads of stuff, just basics to fill a small 2 bed unit.

Thanks!

Employ someone with proper insurance etc, even if it costs more. If you go for a "man with a van" please please make sure that whatever he hits or whatever damage he does, he is fully insured.

Hi be careful if you get somebody from the paper, get a price as they charge by the hour and dont rush! They charge you from the time they leave the last job and the ones I had tried to charge us travel to the next job double dipping!

Why not hire a trailer and do it yourselves?...maybe pay( in beer or a meal out) some friends with a bit of muscle to help you?

We have 2x beds, sofa, fridge, 20 or so tea chests so would struggle to find a big enough trailer I think (?) Plus only been here a few months so don't have that many friends that I can ask to help

I was thinking of doing that. What company did you use? (might have to PM me that one)

We are moving on a Friday so J and D will both be at work
