Translocal

We move your stuff!

Want to buy in the online marketplaces but have no way to pick your items up? Just need something picked up and delivered? You need a mate with a ute! From a single item to a full load, we have the best rates going and will handle your items with care.

Serving Melton & beyond

We are based in Melton Victoria and service a wide area across the north and west of Melbourne and beyond. The best way to find out if we can handle your job is to ask.

Beats trailer hire

Our rates are often better than the cost of renting a trailer but even when they’re not, you don’t have the hassle of picking up the trailer and returning it after the job. Now that’s convenience.

Well equipped

Not only do we operate late model reliable vehicles but we are also fully equipped with everything needed to properly restrain and protect the loads we carry.

Experience is key

Over 30 years experience in the transport industry means you can believe us when we say that your goods will be handled by experienced professionals.

How it works

It’s simple really. And that’s the way we like to keep things for our customers, simple and hassle free. Just follow the process below.

Tell us what you need done

Just give us a call or send us a message through Facebook or the form on this site and let us know what you need to move, where from and where to.

We quote in advance

Our rates are calculated partly on distance and partly on time and you will always know in advance what your costs will be. Find more details about our rates here.

We collect and deliver your goods

We collect and deliver your goods as agreed and of course we take the greatest care. Because our vehicles are operated by a single driver, if any of the items are a two man lift then you may need to provide assistance to load and unload. If you can’t provide this assistance then we can arrange a second team member but will need to charge extra for this. Find out more about our rates here.

You pay for the service

As well as accepting cash we are also equipped with mobile EFTPOS equipment so you can pay by card and even Apple Pay if that works better for you.. See under “Payment options” for more details.

Payment options

Translocal has partnered with secure payment provider Square to provide our customers with choice in their payment options.

Mobile EFTPOS

Our drivers are equipped with mobile Electronic Funds Transfer Point of Sale (EFTPOS) terminals which means you can pay securely at the delivery point with your credit or debit card (or smart phone) just as you would in a store. We use Square to process card payments securely.

Tap and go, Apple & Google Pay

Yes our Square terminals also support tap and go touch payments with your card and Apple Pay and Google Pay through your smart phone.

Electronic invoicing

If need be or if you want to go completely contactless we can email you an invoice which you can pay securely online from the comfort of your own computer or smart phone.

Cash

Of course you can still pay with cash if that works best for you. We can arrange to have a receipt sent to you if required.

Serving Melton and beyond

We service the greater Melton area and even beyond for just a little extra

Professional team

Our team are all experienced professionals who know how to care for customers and their goods alike.

Best rates going

Transparent pricing that makes sense. We are competative with or better than the alternatives.

Reliability

We do what we say. We keep apointments and meet deadlines and don’t make promises we can’t keep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use Translocal and not just hire a trailer or a ute?

Because for shorter more local jobs we are usually less expensive than trailer or ute hire but even when we are not, you don't have the hassle of picking up and returning the trailer or ute. Plus you have our help to get the job done.

Do you only operate in Melton or do you service other areas?

We used to say that a job would need to start in, end in or pass through Melton but we will go outside our operating area if the customer is prepared to pay a little extra to cover the dead (unpaid) miles we would need to travel. The best way to find out is ask.

If I buy an item say, in the Facebook marketplace and hire Translocal to deliver it, can I get you to pay for the item and fix you up when you deliver?

Not yet! For the moment the purchase of the item is between you and the seller, we only deal with delivery. But we might have something in the pipeline. Watch this space.

What payment methods do you have?

Our drivers are equipped with mobile EFTPOS terminals which means you can pay using your credit or debit card or even with your mobile phone if you use Apple Pay or Google Pay. We also have the ability to send you an invoice by email which you can pay securely online from the comfort of your own computer or smart phone and of course we also accept cash.
