about us

The House Removal Professionals

Welcome to Ocean and Outback, the house removal professionals. A family owned and operated company, established in 1996, we have been in the home removal business in Queensland, for three generations.

We are the leading house removals company in Gympie and pride ourselves on the quality not quantity of our work, as well as the friendly, professional service we provide.

Moving your home can be a daunting process so we work hard to provide a stress-free start to finish service. Our experienced house removal team are dedicated to delivering our customers a quality finished product whether they are relocating, restumping or raising or lowering your home.

We have one of the largest house removals trailers in Australia, all hydraulic and completely steerable and can move houses of any size, any distance. While most of our house removals are around Gympie, the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane we have moved houses from the Gold Coast to Normanton and as far as Bidourie.

Of course, we have comprehensive insurance and a current QBCC Builders License (no. 77094).

So, if you have a home that you would like raised, lowered, restumped or relocated, or if you are in the market to buy a removal home – then please, contact us now.

our services


Ocean and Outback are the experts at relocating homes. We can relocate and stump your existing home or one that you have purchased from elsewhere. Naturally, we also have relocation houses for sale which we can offer as a package. These houses include delivery, stumping, plans and engineering.


HOUSE lifting

Perhaps you would like to raise – or even spin – your house to capture a better view or aspect.  House lifting can also provide additional living space for an extension. We have many years of experience house raising and can complete the whole process in a week, without even emptying the house of its furniture.



Older houses often need to be reinforced or re-stumped, particularly if renovations are being made. Our expert team offer a fast, efficient house re-stumping service utilising either galvanised steel, concrete or treated hardwood. We can also provide structural steel or hardwood bearers if they are required.


experience matters

When it comes to relocating homes, you want to go with experience. Ocean and Outback House Removals have been relocating homes in Queensland since 1929.

Our house removal specialists have years of experience in house raising, lowering, re-levelling  house re-stumping and even spinning.


a family run business

Graham Larsen


The Boss, Graham has been moving homes since he was a boy with his dad, Selwyn, in the family business. He takes pride in making sure your home is delivered in the same state as it left and on schedule. When time permits he enjoys taking his children, Sam and Emily to compete in their chosen sports of motor cross and dressage.

Melanie Larsen


Melanie (or Mel as most people know her) runs an efficient office at Ocean and Outback, making sure every detail of your move is taken care of. While living a full life supporting Sam and Emily in their chosen competition sports, Mel also enjoys competing on her horse when she can.

Sam Larsen

Graham and Melanie’s son, Sam, has been helping in the family moving game since he could walk. Sam races motor cross at National level and intends to have a gap year after finishing school in 2019. He’ll work for Ocean and Outback full time in 2020 before starting a university degree.

Emily Larsen

Emily has been travelling in the moving trucks with dad, Graham, since she was a little girl and is not afraid to help her parents with the hard work either. Emily is in her senior years at high school and also competes at National level but with dressage horses instead of bikes.

“From the first meeting with Graham I knew I had the right guy for the job. Never second guessing himself or the magnitude of my house removal.
I had two old school buildings removed off a very steep, windy private property…
“The move was flawless and professional. Graham’s attention to detail was refreshing and extremely thorough and the job was completed quickly and without hassle…
“I highly recommend ocean and outback and trust them with any removal and or re-stumping job great or small.
