Frequently Asked Questions

What size container do we need?

99% of our moves are done in a 6 meter container. 12 meter containers are available if required.

How long can we have the container for?

All of our quotes include the use of the container for 28 days for the job to be completed. If you require the container for a longer period this is fine however a hire fee would commence. If you require storage we are able to store the container as well.

How long will it take for our container to arrive at our new address?

It would depend upon where you are going to. If it is a local move it would be taken directly to your new address from collection.  If it was going interstate most destinations around Australia would be delivered within 7 days.

Do you have insurance?

Yes insurance is included for fire, collision, overturn, theft or loss of container.

What is your payment method?

We require a deposit on booking and the balance to be paid in full prior to delivery.  We accept Visa or MasterCard payments or a direct transfer into our account.

What Our Customers Are Saying:

Wow you guys are amazing.... Mick and Sam that is, at Dial-a-box Ballarat. Firstly your expertise made the purchase and delivery of my container so easy, even with the reshuffle . Followed by the pickup and relocation of both containers with only millimetres to spare you manoeuvred those monsters with such precision.
I remain in awe of your skill. Thanks guys for making this move painless...


We would like to thank Dial a Box for the exceptional service they provide. From the lovely ladies in the office who organised the transport and storage, to the amazing Sam who delivered & picked up our container from one home to the next. His abilities amazed and when we realised, even with his skills that it wasn't possible to relocate, he helped unload our tightly packed 20ft container of belongings with no hesitation and a smile on his face. Greatly appreciated the care taken with our families possessions. Outstanding staff and business and would highly recommend to anyone. Very happy customers 🙂
