Our Past

Allied Moving Services has been synonymous with professional moving services since 1926. Our longevity in the industry is testament to our uncompromising standards of service and professionalism, consistently meeting client’s expectations.

The Allied network has developed through acquisition and the establishment of new operations around Australia and the world. Entry was made into the Australian market through a merger with the Downard moving business, and traded as Downard Pickfords until 1992. From then, the name was formally changed to Allied Pickfords. 

Our Present

Allied Moving Services is a quality assured company with over 600 branches globally. In Australia, the business is represented in every state with over 40 locations, a fleet in excess of 300 vehicles and a committed team of over 400 people.

If you are thinking about moving internationally, the added protection layer of a 24/7 tracking system will put your mind at ease. From humble beginnings to the major global business it is now, Allied will take care of everything in your relocation, right from the pre-move survey. There is no need to spend time packing your own belongings. The professional teams of removalists will take care of the legwork so you can focus on the organisation for the other side of the move, be that elsewhere in Australia or in another country altogether.

Regular training for wrapping, handling, transport and safety occurs for each of the members of the Allied removals teams. Every worker will be up to speed on the necessary techniques for the safe removal of everything you want to take with you. From musical instruments to valuable collections of memorabilia, everything will arrive at your next destination exactly as you left it.

Allied also has high standards for the respect of your home or office. Staircases and walls will be meticulously looked after when goods are being moved, so you’ll leave your old premises clean and tidy, while the new one won’t be damaged when you arrive. If something needs extra protection, the team will use specialist materials to cover a space and keep it looking clean and undamaged.

Allied also has facilities to look after the entire family – it might be a treasured automobile or a family pet that needs special attention. Whatever your requirements for commercial or home moving services might be, you’ll be in safe and secure hands.

There are a number of services available with optional extras to be added on, so have a look at what your needs are and get in touch with a professional representative. Allied is here to make the entire home or office transition process simple and free of stress.
