Queensland House Removers specialise in the removal and relocation of homes including the raising, sliding and re-stumping of homes and other structures.
Director John Wright, spent five days in consultation with his engineer
planning the job and was onsite by November 2017 to raise one of the
wharves’ sheds, a heritage listed structure built in 1934 as a wool store.
The shed, 75m by 25m, was raised 2.8m by a team of seven.
Over a week Queensland House Removers fitted steel beams through
the structure then jacked it up. Hutchinson Builders came in and
laid the foundations then Queensland House Removers lowered the
building to its new place.
“It was an old building with solid timbers that made the job a very
heavy one. We handle the big jobs and we’re able to get in and get
them done, and Hutchies know that,” said John.
Removers are proud to have been involved in the transformation
of the Howard Smith Wharves and would like to thank Hutchinson
Builders for making the raise run so smoothly.”
Queensland House Removers is a family company of three generations
with a total of 100 years experience in house removing.
employs 28 staff, operating, “Transporting and resitting buildings is a cost effective and
environmentally friendly way to restore and revitalise existing
structures,” said John.
John is a registered builder in Queensland and New South Wales and
Queensland House Removers employs a draftsman to manage the
necessary architectural plans, engineers’ reports and council approvals.
Queensland House Removers also transports boats and offers
developers a service of buying or removing old homes and providing

A successful large project for Queensland House Removers was the
moving of the 1880s drill shed including cottage and orderly room
at Fortitude Valley in 2016. The 400m² building had to be slid over,
raised 2m and re-stumped with approximately 120 stumps.
