Allied Pickfords - PAST
Allied Pickfords has been synonymous with professional moving services since the seventeenth century. Our longevity in the industry is testament to our uncompromising standards of service and professionalism and consistently meeting client's expectations.
The Allied Pickfords network has developed through acquisition and the establishment of new operations around Australia and the world.
Entry was made into the Australian market through a merger with the Downard moving business, and traded as Downard Pickfords until 1992, when the name was formally changed to Allied Pickfords.
