Consumer Action assisting a man in VCAT claim against removalists Wridgeways Pty Ltd
Wridgeways used subcontractors to move the man’s possessions from Melbourne to Canberra, where he was required to move to work.
The claim alleges that, on arriving at his new home in Canberra, the contractors left his possessions outside the front of his home and that many of the items were damaged in the move, including water damage to electrical items.
Wridgeways were immediately notified of the damage and provided quotes for the damage to his goods. Over two years later, Wridgeways have not offered any compensation.
The claim alleges that the removal services were not provided with due care and skill in breach of the Australian Consumer Law, and seeks compensation of over $11,000.
