How much does it cost to move from Melbourne to Sydney?

On average, the cost can vary between $2,500 to $5,000. Unfortunately, there is no set price guide because all costs are tailored to satisfy the client’s requirements. The more services required, the higher the cost.

Are there any unexpected costs I should be aware of?

While a professional removalist will take care to make sure they have planned well for the move, unexpected costs can always occur.
