I worked with my father to begin with, helping him with removal jobs the company provided. It was just him and I, in the beginning.
Working with family can be tough, but we had a good relationship and encouraged each other every day. Made work enjoyable.


Management was 'sometimes' unorganised and not really kind to its employees. There were a lot of complaints within the workers, but they made up for it with wages.


The workplace culture and environment wasn't always great, but the different ethnicities did get along and did work together.


The hardest part of the job was definitely the loading and unloading of appliances and furniture due to weight management, but a rewarding task when it came to strength in the long run.


The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my Father. He put no pressure on me, as he knew my capabilities, I got to listen to my own music and interacting with different cultures every day.

A typical day at allied pickords was fast paced, hot and very demanding .
I learnt how to pack up peoples houses.

Management was efficient.

Everyone got on and worked as a team to get things done.

Hardest part of the job was physical labour working ten hour shifts.

The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing nice homes.

a typical day consisted of loading and unloading the trucks and delivering goods to the customer, I learned alot of things whilst at this job learnt certain knots and tieing techniques to tie things off on the trucks,
management treated us well told us what jobs we where on for the day asked boys if they wanted overtime.


the most enjoyable part of the day was being at a different location each day always doing something different
Pros
being at a different location each day
Cons
there where some unpleasant customers

A typical day at work involves to handling of furniture and other house hold equipment, unpacking of customers belongings.

I learnt about how to handle various different weights of furniture, how to secure a container full of content.


Management is a key part of any job, at allied pickfords we excel in this department. The management crew is always a reliable source and are flexible with your hours.


Hardest part of the job would be the unloading of heavy materials from one container to another

Easiest part of the job is coming to work knowing whatever you face for that day it will be done with precision and if done correctly it will go very quickly
Pros
Monthly breakfasts
Cons
Weekend hours

A typical day at work usually started at 6 or 7am and usually finished when all jobs for the day were done. I learnt how to pack boxes, how to handle valuables, how to unpack the boxes. It was always a friendly environment to work in. The hardest part of the job would have to have been when another team does not pack the customers boxes right, and the customers valuables end up broken. The most enjoyable part of the job would defiantly be seeing how satisfied a customer is at the end of a long day.

The removalist industry is extremely hard work. If you are entering this industry, be prepared for heavy lifting and strenuous work. A typical day at work involved arriving at the depot early in the morning and getting into the truck with the driver and a fellow worker. We would then drive to our designated house and pack the truck full of all the furniture while wrapping most of it in moving blankets. Finishing a day of work is extremely satisfying as it is extremely hard work and you have definitely earned your dollar.
Pros
Flexible work hours
