About ABR Relocations

Professional Moving & Relocation Company

ABR Relocations was established in 1997 and delivers quality and innovative Office Moving, Library Relocation, Laboratory/Medical Relocation and Warehouse Move services in Melbourne and across Australia to corporate, government, medical, scientific and education sectors.

We make it easy for you to move. Our whole focus is on providing our clients with exceptional moving services. Our aim is for you to have a smooth and stress-free move with everything in the right place with the least fuss and with your staff productive and happy.

Based in Melbourne, ABR Relocations has developed and implemented many innovative Office Removalist methods and systems of world class standard. They save you time, money and stress and provide high levels of asset protection.

Our methods and equipment minimise disruption to daily work activities and the downtime required for packing and unpacking. They minimise the potential risks to furniture and equipment during the office move. With quality equipment and our legendary customer care, we work hard to make sure your office relocation experience is as stress-free and risk-free as possible.

Our dedicated office relocation teams have years of project management experience and expertise in disassembly and reassembly of office workstations, desks, boardroom tables, compactus and shelving systems.

ABR provides specialist library relocation services. The large volume of high quality purpose-built library trolleys means we can easily and accurately sequential relocate library collections. ABR library trolleys mean all items are securely protected during transit from theft, damage and the elements. Holding 4 linear metres per trolley, they make sequential packing and re-shelving a breeze - no inefficient, stressful packing/unpacking into boxes. 

The volume of ABR's library relocation equipment and staging methodology means easy sequential picking/packing and accurate interfiling in conjunction with disassembly and reassembly of library shelving. Whether moving an existing library or establishing brand new library collections, ABR Relocations has the skills, equipment and methodologies to deliver well-managed and successful library projects.

We truly understand (and love) the complexities and requirements of library relocations. Years of practical experience and project supervision means the minimum library downtime and a smooth, stress-free transition.

With such a wide range of equipment, supplies, samples, and other items - from delicate, expensive and often heavy/bulky equipment to environmentally sensitive irreplaceable test results - laboratory and medical relocations require the highest levels of expertise to ensure a safe and successful move. 

ABR Relocations has many years of experience working in this difficult field with a wide range of university, research and government organisations. Our many repeat clients are testament that you can trust ABR’s operational know-how and expertise.

Superior Relocation Standards and Customer Service Focus

Our customer-focused relocation team with years of industry experience and know-how, combined with activity specific moving methodologies and equipment means we have built solid repeat business with many extremely satisfied customers. Many of our first-time clients can't believe how easy and stress-free it is to partner with ABR Relocations. Our success is to earn the loyalty of our clients and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that we've provided the best possible service and made move day as smooth and efficient as possible.

As a leader in the office, library and laboratory/medical relocations sector, we have proven and documented procedures and processes that cover all operational and administration aspects, particularly manual handling and safety awareness. ABR Relocations is the only company in Australia to have the exclusive US Office Moving Systems Inc® certification.

The environment has always been a consideration with ABR Relocations. We have designed our processes and equipment to minimise our packaging and moving waste. We use custom designed heavy duty, long-lasting moving trolleys and equipment, reusable repairable tapeless packing boxes, computer covers, accessories bags and building protection systems. We can minimise your moving waste by taking excess assets to auction and sorting/recycling your unsaleable items and move rubbish. A little thought and effort can make a big difference to the overall environmental impact that any office, library, laboratory and warehouse relocation inevitably has.

ABR Relocations has been proactive with its OHS approach and developing relocation systems and methods that protect both our employees and our client’s assets. Our significant investment in a wide range of custom trolleys, dollies and other relocation equipment means that we get furniture, equipment and other items stay on "wheels" throughout the move. For ABR this typically means 1 lift on and 1 lift off during the move. It eliminates the double/triple/quadruple manual handling associated less sophisticated moving methodologies. This approach means ABR Relocations has an excellent record in preventing employee injuries including winning Workcover Award recognition for several years running.

    ABR Relocations recently moved our company into new offices and the process was easy, problem-free and within a welcomed (and earlier than expected) timeframe. The staff were professional and friendly, the tapeless boxes were very convenient and overall, the relocation was painless for all staff. Thank you!

    Cathy Fowler – Office Manager
  • City of Greater Bendigo

    The City of Greater Bendigo engaged ABR Relocations after an exhaustive selection process…based on recommendations by other libraries, Public Records of Victoria, economic value and the ability to perform the relocation within our time frame.

  • Dahlsens Building Centres

    We recently contracted ABR to move our offices from Malvern East to Notting Hill. The price quoted was fair but more importantly the service was very good and the workers were friendly and obliging. ABR has delivered everything they promised and went out of their way to deliver the little extras we forgot. We highly recommend ABR to anyone needing to move.

  • Department Of Human Services

    I was very impressed with the Tapeless Boxes™ that you use and they certainly are very durable, easy to pack, unpack and move around.They were the most polite & helpful removalists, that I, and others who were on site at the start of the move, have come across. The way in which you moved computers and equipment, and padded the door and stairways was very impressive and I believe with the information you provided us prior to the move enabled it all to go very well.

    Lorraine Hamilton, Office Manager
  • Marks & Clerk Australia

    We recently had occasion to use ABR Relocations following a relocation of the office. They were impressive from the outset. ABR were more than happy to coordinate the move with not only our staff, but also the company in charge of the fit out of our new office. On the day of the move they were a pleasure to work with and had a "can do" attitude. They also worked over the weekend to ensure that we would have a fresh start in our new office in the next week. Following the move ABR continued to assist us with a number of matters. Overall the whole removal process was made easy by the efficiency of ABR's staff and moving guide. We would not hesitate at all to recommend ABR for any removal needs.

  • Monash University

    Can I please pass on our thanks to your team for the great job done in our move today in the VC’s office, which was absolutely seamless. Vanessa and I were impressed by the fact that despite it being in the middle of a working day, your team managed to get it done without any interruption to our work.

    Damien Farrell, Director – Government and External Relations
  • Motion & Control - NSK

    I am pleased to recommend the company, ABR Relocations.
    Shifting 2500 pallets of bulk stock and 10,000 boxes of stock from our 2 storey mezzanine structure was always going to be logistically challenging when coordinating with another contractor responsible for the disassemble and re-assembly of the existing racking system. With constant questioning from the ABR team, our confidence in their ability to get the job done was justified. Job completed in 15 days. Well done.

    Bruce Lees – Marketing and Sales Support Manager
  • Singleton Ogilvy & Mather

    With a merger there are so many variables and so many things that can go amiss, so many little details that need to be addressed and thought through. We needed a relocation company that covered all these areas and more. You came up trumps! From the very first contact your courteous and co-operative manner and style shone through, to the well thought out move and eventual relocation, your efficiency was second to none.

    Roger Clifton, Senior Management Partner
  • Tattersalls

    Your staff were the most co-operative I have had the pleasure of working with during many relocations undertaken by Tattersalls. The innovative methods employed by your company, certainly contributed to our staff having a minimum of loss of production. No computer equipment or property was damaged during the move, which I am sure was due to your methods. Due to the quality of services, your company has been appointed as Tattersalls’ preferred supplier for any future relocation work.

    Baxter Henderson, Purchasing & Property Manager
  • Tattersalls

    I think the most rewarding sight I have seen for a while was on the Monday morning following the first move.Seeing the whole office complex set up as if the occupants had been in residence the previous Friday, and then watching people starting work with intact desks and filing cabinets, phone and computers within half an hour of arriving at work.This is not only a big productivity issue, but also a big morale booster for all the staff involved. Busy, properly motivated people become quite annoyed when they have to perform unproductive tasks.The ABR methods reduced this to an absolute minimum.
