For piece of mind storage

Storage – For piece of mind storage 

It is very hard having total strangers come into your house and handle the possessions you have accumulated over the years. Then to put them in storage you want to know that your treasured items are in safe hands.


Cleave Removals can boast to having the best Storage/Removal Facility in Regional Victoria, and can accommodate your needs whether you require short term or long term storage, no consignment is too big or too small. 


Our premises have over 1000 square metre of storage space. Brand new offices have been built and the building boasts security monitoring in all areas as well as having pest control done on a regular basis.


There are many advantages of storing your goods with Cleave Removals rather than at a Self Storage Facility. For a minimal fee our staff can stack your goods away professionally to ensure no damage is done to your furniture, wrapping all items in store pads supplied by Cleave Removals Bendigo. The staff will also do an Inventory List and Sticker to guarantee that what comes in goes back out in the same condition.  


Couches should never be kept in stacks as anything stacked on top of them will cause pressure marks which are very hard to get out.  Cleave Removals have special couch racks especially to store your couches.

At a Self Storage Facility you hire a shed and pay for the entire space whether you use it or not. At Cleave Removals Storage Facility you only pay for the space your furniture takes up.



You can choose to have Cleave Removals transport your goods for you or opt to bring your goods into storage yourself. You can bring your goods in from interstate or local. When the time comes for your goods to be re-delivered we are more than happy to provide you with a no obligation free quote to move your goods from our storage to your home. No matter where your new home is - Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne or Bendigo, be assured we will take the utmost care of your goods to ensure they get from one location to another safely. 


For that extra peace of mind we are able to arrange insurance for your goods while they are in transit or storage because we are an authorised representative of Aldridge and Street Pty Ltd who are licensed insurance brokers.

Let Cleave Removals take the Stress out of Moving

Let Cleave Removals take the Stress out of Moving

Let’s face it moving can be stressful. When choosing an AFRA (Australian Furniture Removers Association) accredited furniture removalist, you know you are going to have the smoothest move possible. There are many reasons to use an AFRA member for your next move. 


AFRA accredits only those furniture removalists that have the necessary equipment, vehicles, premises and staff training needed to complete a professional move. All AFRA members carry Public Liability Insurance and are authorised to provide Transit and Storage Insurance for all your goods and effects being moved.


There are only four removalists in Bendigo that are accredited to provide Transit and Storage insurance. To ensure you are in fact getting insurance with your move you should always ask your removalist for a Financial Services Guide (FSG) and Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) along with their Australian Financial Services License Number. If a removalist is unable to provide you with this information, they may not be qualified to sell you insurance.


You can also call AFRA on 1800 671 806, they can verify for you if a removalist is in fact able to sell you insurance or not.


You may be moving locally, country or interstate. Maybe you have a full house load or perhaps only a few items. We are able to provide you with all of these services along with full insurance for that peace of mind.

Brisbane House Moving Companies

Brisbane House Moving Companies


Tired of looking for reliable Brisbane house moving companies? Look no further. While Cleave Removals are based in Victoria our frequent trips to Queensland mean that we can be your local removalists in Brisbane too!


Tip of the Month


If you have spent weeks packing and moving into your brand new house, the thought of cleaning the old one can be the most stressful part of the move. It may seem a bit indulgent but our tip is to hire a local cleaner for two to three hours to go through the empty house and do all the wiping down of cupboards and doors, cobweb removal, vacuuming and the last minute cleaning. It will be the best money you spend!

Backloading Melbourne

Melbourne Backloading


Melbourne backloading is a great way to get cheap rates when moving house or relocating to or from Melbourne. Removalists hate driving empty and half empty trucks so we love offering backloading to our loyal customers. Help us fill our loads!


Tip of the Month for Melbourne Backloading


As soon as you know your moving date give Cleave Removals a call and ask about Melbourne backloading availability. If you are on a budget (and organised!!) you can even send your stuff in several different loads in trucks that are half-filled. Make sure you organise storage at the other end AND mark all of your boxes very clearly so you know what's what.

Cairns Relocations

Cairns Relocation


A Cairns relocation is a big move, especially if you are moving from interstate so be sure to choose a removalist company with plenty of experience. Cleave Removals can do Cairns relocations from Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Melbourne and beyond. 


Tip of the Month for your Cairns Relocation


About a month before your Cairns relocation go through the contents of your garden shed, garage, roof and attic space or space under the home as you made need to dispose of chemicals, paints or old tyres etc. This is a good chance to get rid of some old stuff and save money by not dragging it to the new place. A good rule of thumb is if you haven't used it for 6 months - get rid of it!

Moving to Victoria?

Moving to Victoria from Queensland, NSW or South Australia?


Whether you're moving from Queensland, New South Wales or South Australia, you've never picked a better time to move to Victoria. Spring is here and has taken some of the chill out of the air, there's been plenty of rain so the countryside is at its greenest and AFL Finals season is here! If you're moving to Melbourne it'll be hard to avoid getting swept away with AFL fever.


If you're moving to regional Victoria for a tree change it will be hard to miss too - especially in Geelong. Some of the more popular tree change destinations in Victoria are Wangaratta, Sale, Taralgon, Horsham, Shepparton, Albury, Traralgon, Warrnambool, Benalla, Bendigo, Ballarat and Colac. Those who are more interested in a sea change won't be disappointed with any of the coastal locations on the Great Ocean Road (Apollo Bay, Lorne, Torquay), the Bellarine Peninsula (Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Queenscliff) or the Mornington Peninsula.


Wherever you are moving to Victoria from, New South Wales, Queensland or South Australia, get a quote from Cleave Removals first. Frequent removal trips to Qld and SA mean that we can offer you great removalist rates on return trips.
