Direct loading at residence

Wherever possible we endeavour to direct load at our clients residence. Direct loading minimises the number of times your goods are handled, which ensures there’s less risk of accidental damage occurring. We recommend that you please discuss this service with your Crown consultant as this may not be available in some rare circumstances.

Containerised transport

Our commitment to you is to get our customers to where they need to be, when they need to be there. We have a number of transport options available, tailored to suit customers various needs and their destinations. This enables us to reduce our carbon emissions footprint down to the lowest possible level and enhance customer safety.

We utilise the following containerisation techniques:

  • Waterproof custom built containers that are specifically designed for the transportation of household goods
  • Containerised transport is a safe and cost effective alternative
  • Tie rails are used to secure loads and prevent movement
  • Containerisation eliminates unnecessary double handling of goods – it is well known that double handling and trans-shipping during transit significantly increases the risk of damage

Getting settled

A dedicated coordinator will act as a single point of contact at destination to manage your delivery and ensure a satisfactory experience prior to your signing off on the delivery of services.

Helpful tips for delivery day

  • Avoid having your delivery scheduled on the same day as your property settlement as settlements can be subject to unexpected delays
  • Please ensure Crown is aware of any access issues at your new home
  • Either you, your spouse, or your trusted representative, should be present on delivery day to ensure the level of assistance provided meets your needs
  • Where practical, arrange for your children to be looked after, or engaged in an activity during the day
