The Man began as a removalist in Melbourne by moving students. He was meant to be studying.
We know you’re on a Mi Goreng sized budget and you need to squeeze your move in between tutes. We’ll get the job done as quickly as possible in one of our affordable smaller trucks.
Hire one mover
We offer solo moves, where we send you our smallest vehicle - surprisingly named the 'Medium truck' - with one mover, instead of the standard two. This helps to keep costs down, with a lower hourly rate. There is a catch, however - you'll need to get on the other end of the sofa or fridge and assist with the heavy lifting. Rest assured, you'll be doing so under the watchful eye of one of our most experienced movers, who'll be able to give you a few pointers on your lifting technique - look at it as a free education, no HELP debt applies! If you'd prefer to hire two movers, you can just sit back and enjoy the service, or pitch in to get it done even quicker.
Be packed up and ready to go
We've moved a lot of students. The scale of preparation ranges from those who have boxes packed and sealed, bed dismantled, and freezer defrosted by the time we arrive, to, well, hungover folks who decided it'd be a bright idea to go out for beers the night before moving day (don't worry, we've been there too). Just know that if you're in the former group, your move will finish a lot quicker and cost a lot less. It's in your interest to do whatever you can to prep for when our movers arrive - dismantle anything you can to make it easier to handle, box up loose items, and try to reserve a nearby parking space where we can put the truck.
Got class or an exam? We can shift your stuff while you work!
Yup, that's right - if you've got an important commitment you can't get out of, we can complete your move without you even needing to be there. Simply go to uni from the old place, and come home to the new one. To use this service, we'll need access to each property (perhaps your housemates can let the us in, or you can leave a key out) a comprehensive list of items which are ready to go, and a credit card on file with the office.
