Welcome to Butlers Mini Movit – Your Specialist Gold Coast Removals Company!
Normally, you have two choices – using a Gold Coast Removals Company or DIY.
At Butlers Mini Movit Gold Coast removals, we offer you a third option. Our “One Man + Truck” option gives you the expertise, equipment (including removal truck) and tricks of the trade from a professional with 20 years of Gold Coast removals experience. But, you get to provide the second removalist (or more) and so dramatically cut the cost of your Gold Coast Removal.
I will help you, organise you, show you how to protect your household goods, teach you how to get the fridge round that awkward corner on the stairs, provide all the equipment – All for just $65 per hour!
If you want us to do it all for you, two men and a truck costs just $100 per hour.
And – Our time starts at YOUR door, not ours. When you are comparing Gold Coast Removals Companies, watch for this or your move could cost a lot more than you think!

All Gold Coast Removalists are different – Here are 7 Questions you need to ask.
1. Do your Gold Coast Removalists work Saturdays or Sundays? BIG issue, this one, for people who work Mon-Friday and can not really afford time off work.
2. Equally important – Does the Gold Coast Removalist charge extra for Saturday or Sunday work? If you can not afford time off work Mon-Fri, it does not help if your move is at double time!
3. Hidden Costs – Does the time start from YOUR door or from the Gold Coast Removal Companies door? Also, does the Gold Coast Removal Company you are considering charge extra for fuel? Or is it included in the hourly rate?
4. Can you keep the cost down by becoming one of the Gold Coast Removalist team for the day? Even if you can not move big, heavy stuff, when you are paying by the hour just helping by moving small, light stuff out to the truck cuts the cost.
5. Are your Gold Coast Removalists easy to work with?
All Gold Coast Removals are stressfull, and working with Gold Coast Removalists that are easy going helps. What do exististing clients say about your Gold Coast Removalists? Always check Testimonials.
6. Do they do High Rises, etc? Do NOT assume – Check before booking..
7. Do you have special needs? For example, moving plants. Always talk to your Gold Coast Removalist well ahead of the move about any special needs. If you have tons of house plants and are moving from Gold Coast to Northern New South Wales for example, there are cross-border issues.
Some everyday items – like the Gas Canister on your BBQ – need specially handling, and moving them may even be forbidden; gas and petrol are good examples. Another one to watch is being a member of a Gun Club – Gold Coast removalists are not permitted to move ammunition.
At Butlers Mini Movit we go the extra mile to make sure we are Gold Coast Removalists you will use again, and recommend to your friends. Unlike many Gold Coast Removal Companies, we see each move as an opportunity to get further business from referalls – so we go all out to help your Gold Coast removals go perfectly.
Ring Andrew on 0417 952 748 or Natalie on (07) 5533 9547 for the Gold Coast Removalists you would be happy to recommend to your friends.

Here are a few Packing Tips to help your Gold Coast Removals.
As usual, the simple tips are the best. Just one of the tips here that will help with your Gold Coast Removals is using a different coloured tape for each room as you seal the box. Simple, but effective!
One thing I found when searching for free boxes for my Gold Coast Removals was that the smaller retailers were much more cooperative than the big retailers – they just gave me whatever they had to get the boxes out of their way. The retail giants had a “we are not allowed to give boxes away any more” attitude – although one lady gave me a wink and added, “we just dump them out back for collection.”
There is a lot of rubbish on the Internet, but the videos made by Coldwell Banker are both professional and useful – you can find more here, mostly on buying and selling a house:

Gold Coast Removals Checklist – Our Top 20 Tips
Here is a quick Checklist to help your Gold Coast removals go smoothly; there is so much going on when you move house, it is easy to forget things.
1. Electricity – Getting to your new house and finding there is no electricity is no fun. Start a week out from your move; electricity companies are not known for lightening fast responses. Close off your supply to the old address 1 day after moving – you may need to go back the day after you move.
2. Phone – I start the phone saga 10 days out from moving day. No phone, no internet!
3. Internet Connection. Internet services also take a few days to organise – start early. These three – electricity, phone and internet – depend on each other; planning ahead can save a lot of frustration.
4. Water, both new and old premises
5. Mail – Good to have a Redirection Serice set up for 3-6 months; its almost guaranteed you will forget someone.
6. Doctor / Dentist – Again, set up ahead of the move. If you need a doctor or dentist, it is good to know they are already set up.
7. Pets – If you have pets, think about how you are going to move them and register with a vet in your new area.
8. Insurance – Let your insurers know you are moving; house, contents, car, etc.
9. Schools – this can be time consuming and starting 3-4 weeks before moving is a good idea; check out uniforms, books etc that may be needed.
10. Bank – Essential to set this up early.
11. Help around the house – If you have a gardener, cleaner, window cleaner, make sure they know you are leaving. Set up in new area.
12. Library – Return old books; once they are packed they may stay packed for a while – while you run up fines. Set up in new area.
13. Driving Licence – Remember it is an offence in most places not to have your current address on your driving licence.
14. Credit Cards – Apart from lost statements, you may have a problem with transactions if your current address does not match the Statement address.
15. Online Accounts – Not as urgent, but if you use Ebay, Amazon and the like, make sure you amend delivery addresses.
16. Friends – Your email address often stays the same when you move – email all your friends your new physical address.
18. Have a “declutter” session and a Garage Sale a month before moving; no point and packing and moving stuff you no longer need. In fact, if you are selling your home, unclutter it before you list it.
19. Exchange mobile phone numbers with your removals driver before you set off, in case you get parted.
20. By planning ahead, you can have a peaceful transition from your old house to the new one; the few days after moving are usually pandemonium and things can get forgotten.

All Gold Coast Removals get stressful at some point.
Take a fun break, restore your sense of humour, and then get back to enjoying your move. If this does not work, probably nothing will – one of the most watched videos on Youtube and one of my favourite “Fun Breaks.”
