How Much Do Long Distance Movers Cost in Australia?

Long distance removalists in Australia offer specialist services in areas such as packing, storage ad transportation of your furniture and goods. Australia is an enormous continent, with many interstate moves requiring long journeys across hundreds to thousands of kilometres. When you consider the fact that your interstate removal or long-distance move requires expert loading, safe and secure transportation and unloading of your valuable items, you should expect to pay accordingly.

Interstate or long distance moves in Australia, from Melbourne to Sydney, Perth to Broome, Canberra to Townsville and beyond, require the assistance of a professional interstate removalist that can cater for your move from end to end.

Costs for Long Distance Movers

Unlike local moves, where the approximate cost of two removalists and a sufficient truck will set you back $400 – $700 approximately, you should expect to pay $1500 minimum for a long distance moving services cost. For complex interstate moves, final bills can reach in excess of $5000.

Factors that will be taken into consideration when quoting for your long distance move in Australia:

1. Location and Distance

The price of petrol is factored into interstate moves, and this is determined by kilometres. A move from Melbourne to Sydney will be cheaper than a Melbourne to Perth removal job. Of course, travel distance will also affect the travel time and the long distance moving cost. Hourly costs for the manpower will be higher if you move a greater distance.

2. Size of Your Load

The inventory of your furniture and goods will help your removalists decide on the right size truck for your interstate move in Australia. Moving a two-bedroom apartment will require a smaller truck size than moving a large 4-bedroom family home. The bigger the truck, the higher your moving costs.

3. Additional Services

For many, moving interstate in Australia is not as straightforward as simply loading furniture and goods onto a truck and unloading at the destination. Often, extra services like; pre-packing services, antique removal, vehicle transportation, shot or long-term warehouse storage, self-storage, billiard table or aquarium removal services or pet transportation services are required. Choosing a professional company like Dawson Moving & Storage is the best way to ensure all your bases are covered, as they offer every imaginable moving and storage services in one place. Keep in mind that Goods-in-transit insurance is essential for interstate moves which can be swiftly arranged by Dawson Moving & Storage at the time of booking.

4. Scheduling Flexibility

There are significant price benefits of having flexibility with your interstate moving needs. Some professional interstate removalists in Australia offer cheaper rates from Monday to Thursday or for advance bookings.

5. Professional Packing
