Transport You Can Trust

"What a fantastic company to deal with, right from my initial call to Katie who organised everything and was such a lovely person, to Ross the delivery driver who was so friendly and helpful he kept us informed every step of the way. Very pleased and furniture arrived earlier than anticipated. The cost was very good as well. I got two other quotes that were twice the price that it ended up being. Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to move."

Glen Kitto

"Absolutely incredible service and communication I highly recommend. Will definitely use this service again! Absolutely go above and beyond , my second time using and I’ll only ever recommend and use Best Rated Transport again!"

Belle Joski

"You just don't get service like this anymore. Super friendly, super professional, nothing was too much trouble. Katie went above and beyond to ensure the transport of our freight from Rockhampton Qld to Perth WA was nothing but a pleasant experience. We could not recommend Katie, Chris and crew highly enough. A big thank you to all involved."
