Removalists assist residents and commercial tenants to move locations, for international, interstate and intrastate moves. Removalists operate within the broader road transport sector. Despite offering specialised products and services, many of the industry's characteristics, such as barriers to entry, freight rates and sub-contracting, are determined by the dynamics of the sector.
Removalists have had a troublesome few years with slowdowns in corporate spending and the property market leading to falling demand and industry revenue. As a result, industry revenue is expected to decline by 1.0% annualised over the five years through 2011-12.
Companies in this industry provide moving and relocation services. These include local, long-distance and international transport of used household, institutional and commercial goods, furniture and equipment. Industry firms often also provide incidental packing and storage activities.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
