It is no accident that the first item under our BUSINESS STRATEGY is Hire the right PEOPLE.

Noosa Van Lines Team

As it is our people who make the difference…and they are doing it every day.

You can be confident and assured that when you put your move in our hands that every person involved genuinely cares about what they do and aims to make your move easy and stress-free for you.

Our team is made up of experienced removalists who have been carefully selected for not only their skills and experience but importantly their attitude and genuine commitment to looking after our customers.

From time to time we also take on offsiders new to the industry, who possess the attitude and aptitude for the job and meeting our high standards. With a strong commitment to their induction, education and training and working under the guidance of our more experienced operators, they quickly learn and develop into operators we are proud to call Noosa Van Lines’ removalists. After completing extensive on the job experience, we will often support them in gaining their heavy vehicle licence and provide the necessary added training for them to progress through to driver/supervisor.

We are also strong supporters of the various AFRA training programs covering skills and knowledge such as Handling Furniture and Effects, Packing and Inventory, Health and Safety, Chain of Responsibility, International Wrapping, Certificate 3 in Transport and Distribution. The staff either attend these courses conducted by AFRA in Brisbane or where appropriate completed online.

Our interstate drivers also undertake training in Basic Fatigue Management.

As an added comfort, all staff are subjected to a police check as part of their pre-employment procedures and agree to random drug and alcohol testing under their Enterprise Agreement; which provides for termination of employment if tests are positive.

We understand that building and maintaining a top-performing team requires a great deal of care with a strong and consistent commitment to our core values and standards, at all levels within our organisation.

Applying our all on the same page plan is the recipe we use for success…it applies equally to the Director, the General Manager and every team member, including the newest member of our team from day one.
