OUR STORY

1800 Possums Is A Family Owned And Operated Business. Find Out More About The People And Story Behind The Business.

Peter McKirdy started working with possums in 2005 when he needed to resolve a possum issue in his mother's home. As demand grew, possum removal became a job then a business.

Peter's son Luke joined the business in 2010 and, due to growth in the industry and competitors with similar brands, the business has now been rebranded to become 1800 Possums - to stand alone and offer a unique and quality service.

The main difference you'll see with 1800 Possums, we don't think that caring for animals and removing possums from your home are mutually exclusive.

  • “A rather belated thank you to Jarred for dealing with a more than usually difficult job. Not easy to block such an irregular possum entry in a rather awkward spot. No noises in the walls and I hope it will stay that way! Many thanks and very best wishes.”
