My experiences with Rod from Hire a Box and Heather and Liz who worked at my home from Hire a Packer were truly wonderful.  They were all, courteous, worked like trojans, extremely professional, gave me really good tips based on their experiences and were quite simply really delightful, polite people to boot!It was an enjoyable experience from the time I first made contact to the end. Fast, efficient and very organised. The feedback and regular update contacts were a very pleasant surprise and I couldn't believe how friendly and prepared everyone was - far more so than me, thank goodness!I have absolutely NO HESITATION in recommending The Hire Group for it's services and will definitely be using them again - in whatever state I'm in.I can't thank you and all the amazing team behind this organisation enough - it was a genuine pleasure doing business with you.Congratulations to all involved - you should feel proud to work for such a professional, polite, well organised and efficient company - the people are fantastic, the service is amazing and the follow-up is exemplary!Encore!

I used Hire a Box for a move in Melbourne, hiring ~37 boxes. It was all very easy to order online. Rod who delivered the boxes was fantastic at explaining how it all worked and giving tips on how to treat a hired box so that the deposit would be fully refunded. It's all very basic and common sense. The boxes were a mix of new and used and all in fantastic condition. Rod also collected the boxes. Both for delivery and collection he was on time and attentive. The deposit was refunded very speedily. Fantastic service and would definitely use again.

We used Hire a Box for the first time and were absolutely delighted with the service. Choosing our box requirements online was easy, an delivery of them was prompt. Furthermore, Rod was so helpful and friendly and gave us heaps of advice from his extensive experience in the industry, not just on packing boxes but also on our impending interstate move. He even took the tim to show us how to correctly prep the boxes, what to put in each size, how to label them, and provided us with a manifest template. The customer service was simply excellent.

I had to travel from Adelaide to Melbourne to pack up a deceased estate, having limited time to get it done in I hadn't realised that the Tuesday when I needed the boxes was Melbourne cup day. I placed a request on my order to see if they could deliver on the Tuesday and they called and arranged it for me. Incredibly friendly, great advice on the best way to assemble and use the boxes and even though I've moved many times I learnt some new tricks. Good quality boxes at very reasonable prices. I can highly recommend using Hire A Box.
