Unsurprisingly, the eastern suburbs of Melbourne have a particular allure – known for its rich, heritage-listed architecture, bustling café life and competitive culinary restaurants. These suburbs are known for their beautiful greenery, especially alongside the Yarra River, and how they cater for young professionals and families alike, with excellent public transport connections and main road thoroughfares, as well as playing host to some of the best schools in Australia. It’s no wonder this part of Melbourne is in top demand for tenants and home buyers!
Upon listing some of the East’s most beautiful features, it’s worth looking at how much a removalist can cost if you’re considering moving to any of the beautiful suburbs you have to choose from. Let’s dive in.
When looking at the cost of hiring a furniture removalists Melbourne’s eastern suburbs can vary depending on multiple factors such as the distance of the move, the size of the property you will be moving to or from, the number of belongings you will be transporting, as well as any additional services required, such as purchasing movers insurance. It’s always recommended to research and obtain quotes from different furniture removalist companies to gain a more accurate estimate based on your specific needs and find the best price for you.
Furniture removalist costs in Melbourne can typically range from $80 to $120 per hour for a two-person team. However, it’s worth noting that these prices are subject to change, and it’s best to contact removalist companies directly for current pricing information.
In addition to the hourly rate, some removalists may charge a call-out fee, covering their travel time and fuel expenses. This fee can vary but is typically in the range of $50 to $100. It’s essential to clarify with the removalist whether this fee is included in the overall cost or if it will be an additional charge.
Additional services like packing, unpacking, furniture disassembly, and storage generally incur extra charges. These services can be convenient but will add to the overall cost of your move. Many furniture moving companies work in time increments too, so if you require assistance with any of the above additional services, you should confirm precisely what you will need with the company. They can provide you with a quote based on how long they anticipate these services may take.
Further, it’s wise to note that Melbourne’s eastern suburbs include many toll roads. There are, of course, many back ways to avoid toll roads, however as previously mentioned, with furniture removalists usually operating in time increments, these backways may become congested, primarily through peak times which can potentially cost you what may end up being the same amount, or more, as opposed to if you were to use the tollways.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that peak periods, such as weekends, public holidays, school holidays, and the summer months, may have a higher demand for removalist services, potentially resulting in higher prices. Booking your removalist well in advance and considering off-peak periods can help you secure a more competitive rate with your desired furniture moving company.
