Testimonial ~ Pete and Sal Minkley, Byron Bay

“Sally and I would highly recommend Robert as honest and reliable and we would definitely buy from Dalby Removal Homes again.”

We get a lot of people stop by and coming to have a look at the transformation of our removal home.

These houses are popular in the Byron shire with people seeking some old world charm. 

Testimonial ~ Chris Radke

“Thanks to Robert and my builder, I have an award-winning beautiful home. I could not be more grateful…”

My purchase was a four room 130 year old cottage to add on to my existing 110 year old home, and right from the beginning, I knew I had made the right decision. The house was extremely sound, an extremely competitive price, and Robert could not have been more supportive and accommodating. He was of great assistance in helping this newbie to navigate through Council approvals etc. The removalist Robert uses has decades of experience, takes great care, and everything went smoothly on the night of removal, with the house neatly tucked in by 5 am.

Robert really cares about his houses and customers. He was even there at midnight in mid-winter, coffee in hand, to see the house on its way!

Testimonial ~ Rae MacRae

“Robert Smiley of Dalby Removal homes, has helped us achieve our aim in locating a home for our rural property, Dalkeith, located near Roma.”

I have looked at many, many homes over a period of a number of years with Robert. He has always been patient, professional, friendly and with a wealth of experience and expertise that he has shared willingly with us. Robert is an honest man, both in his conversations and financial dealings ( He even refunded funds to me that I had overpaid. )

Around Robert, he has a team of knowledgeable co workers, who deal with the planning, council and compliance aspects of removal houses.

Our experience with Brendan Jempson at Plans to Inspire was a positive one with many a phone call answered quickly and with a reassuring manner that spoke of on the ground knowledge and experience.

Rohan Worsley and his best mate Joe, our removal team,were a fantastic combination With years of experience and many a great take to tell of past episodes, we were impressed with their modern equipment and old fashioned problem solving methods. Our questions of “Do you see a problem with that?” were always answered with “Why would it be ? “

Rohan and Joe were amazing workers in the heat and flies of February in the west. The challenging conditions of February rain and clay soils were handled with good humour and a great attitude, even extending to retarping the roof at midnight as the rain came down. We enjoyed their company and they will always be welcome at our home, as friends.

Paul Buckley, the roofer and his workmates were impressive with their skills and ability to overcome the difficult heat conditions. We think our roof is now a great feature of this house. Our building inspector commented on the high standard of roofing and guttering that Paul and the boys provided. We are grateful for their skill.

Finally, Robert Smiley was a great help in all aspects of this project. We have been fortunate to have his services. We commend Robert to you.

Testimonial ~ Alex Gow, Toowoomba

“Dalby Removal Homes specialise in Queensland and Colonial homes and helped us to realise our dream of owning a true Queenslander.”

Robert’s knowledge and experience was very helpful in making our decision.

His advice on various  renovation options helped us to plan our project with assistance from the many trades people recommended by Robert.

Testimonial ~ Geoff Layton, Moore Park

“I worked with Robert over an 18 month period looking for a specific style and size house.”

We must have viewed at least dozen or so houses over a number of trips to Dalby before finding the perfect place. Robert would keep me informed of any new listings that showed potential during the process and went out of his way to help find the house I was looking for. During this 18 months and since my purchase, I have found Robert to be a genuine guy and a true professional. Both he and Kristine were outstanding hosts, always making me feel welcome during my visits. His extensive knowledge, connections and recommendations made a complicated process far easier. I highly recommend Dalby Removal Homes and Robert to anyone thinking of pursuing a relocation house.

Ashley & Erin Shaw, Rochedale

“We wanted to let you both know what a pleasure it has been doing business with you.”

Robert, it was so great to be able to ring up and leave a message and know without a doubt that you would ring back. After our dealing with some other companies we were extremely gun shy and you restored our faith and renewed our belief that there are honest people in business. Thanks for finding our dream house for us and helping us to get our hands on it. Kristine, I don’t know how many times I rang up feeling quite depressed. Your happy smiling voice always brought some bounce back into my day. Thank you. All in all, Ashley and I found our dealing with Dalby Removal Homes such a joy that we are telling everyone who will listen!!

Travis & Sue Comello, Kingaroy

“We have been very happy dealing with Robert.”

When first meeting him, he was pleasant to talk to and came across as being very honest, and this has proven to be correct. He has gone out of his way to accommodate us with all our requirements, trusted us with our financial situation and kept us informed at all times. Robert has been to visit after the move to see if everything is okay and we couldn’t be happier. We were worried about having to cut the house into two, but were given plenty of reassurances. Now that the work has been performed, you would not even know it has been moved or that it had been cut in half. Bill Chappell, the removalist, and Robert make a good team and we are happy with the whole team effort.

Andrew & Lisa Gardner, Goondiwindi

“We had absolutely no problems at all buying our removal home from Robert, so much so we would do it again.”

Everything went according to plan, the home (in two sections) arrived when expected and it was all back together again within a week. The home, formerly 25 sq.m, has been extended and renovated and we are now able to enjoy it.

John & Dawn Madsen, B & B, Goomburra Valley

“We found Robert to be very helpful and are really happy that the move was effected successfully.”

Robert’s removal team worked so hard and were absolutely wonderful. We wouldn’t use any other team. Robert is on the lookout for other Queenslander homes for us.

Andrew & Heather Clark, Mt Cotton

“Robert is an honest bloke and related well to the whole family.”

He knows about houses as he has renovated himself and gave us helpful hints on colours and suppliers for renovations. We were after a particular house and Robert kept us informed during the searching process. We were waiting on a subdivision to be processed, and once the right house had been found, Robert held on to it for us until the land was ready. Nothing was too much trouble, and he even arranged for some antique furniture, which had been bought in Dalby, to be shipped with the house. Bob Mackay House Removals were also very helpful and knowledgeable. We are owner builders and Bob gave us extensive tips to make our job easier and to ensure we didn’t step into any minefields in the building process. We are subdividing more land and have referred other people to Robert to enable them to have the benefit of his knowledge and quality of service. The quality and size of the house Robert obtained for us was far superior to any available through Brisbane suppliers, and also for a much reduced price, so we couldn’t be happier.

John & Helen Dibble, Wights Mountain

“Robert listened to what we were after and found us exactly the house we were looking for…….original, solid and with plenty of character.”

In fact, it was the first house he showed us. He even assisted us with obtaining insurance, pest inspection and architectural drawings. Our newly acquired home was moved incident free thanks to his insistence on only using first class house removers.
