I would fully recommend Galleon. There was lots of communication all the way through with emails and calls being replied to very quickly. The price was very favourable compared to other local removal companies. The team that did the removals worked so hard, and they were a nice bunch of chaps too. They arrived on time, hardly took a break and got the job done quickly, very professionally and with good humour. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would certainly use them again if required.

So what about you? Could relocating to Australia be the right move for yourself and your family? Could 2024 be the year?
