Moving to US

International Removals to and from Australia

The land of the free and the home of the brave has always dazzled Australia as a land filled with bright lights, big stars and an endless stream of burgers and fries, not to mention the unique identities of all fifty states that demand you visit them. While it’s seemingly on the other side of the world, the United States is a popular destination for Australians looking to make a leap, rather than a step, forward in their career, but it’s never been an easy country to move to.

We’ve connected to a trusted network of removalists across all fifty states, from the deep south of Alabama to the open plains of Wyoming. This means that wherever you are relocating, you can rest assured that your Chess Moving consultant will be close enough at hand to help you with any concerns. Our knowledgeable staff will give you the right advice and deliver on time, every time.

Chess Moving has more than 100 years of experience in moving people, and objects all around the world. Over the years, we’ve helped individuals and small business, as well as large corporations and government departments too.

Our people are the best in the business and we treat each move with care and attention to detail, because our brand and our reputation are built on trust.

While you may not be concerned about your items if you’re just moving around the corner, insurance is essential for long distance moves, especially where there are ships, planes and trucks involved. We offer comprehensive insurance to protect you and your belongings so that should something go wrong, you have peace of mind that your insurance will cover the damages.

Packing Services

Organising a move can be stressful and exhausting, especially if you’re working a full time job right up until the last minute.
