How Much Does Moving Houses Cost in Melbourne?

The cost of moving houses in Melbourne is one of the most important considerations when it comes to planning your move. Whether you choose to hire professional Melbourne removalists or do it yourself, moving houses in Melbourne generally costs in excess of $300.00. Of course, the scale of your move will impact the price of moving significantly; moving out of a 1-bedroom apartment will be a lot cheaper than moving out of a double-storey family home.

Typical costs of moving in Melbourne with removalists are;

$320+ for a 1-bedroom apartment

$450+ for a 2-bedroom home

$550+ for a 3-bedroom home

$700+ for a 4-bedroom home

Typically, all professional removalists in Melbourne calculate fees at an hourly rate of approximately $130 per hour which includes two men and a truck. On the same note, if you were to hire your own moving truck, you will pay approximately $70 per hour but will need to find manpower to help you load and unload. Hiring professional removalists in Melbourne can end up costing less than moving without assistance, because movers are trained to work quickly and competently. Choosing professional removalists will also dramatically lower the risk of costly property damage.

There are many factors which increase the price of moving home, such as; difficult property access, many stairs, long travel distance from property to property or property to depot, a large number of heavy items and higher amounts of furniture or fragile items than usual. Your removalists should be able to provide a precise quote to avoid any unexpected fees at the completion of your move.

Extra services can be provided when you choose an expert moving company in Melbourne. These moving services do incur additional fees, but can be arranged by your Melbourne removalists to make your moving experience as stress-free as possible.
