If you need to move within Australia, you will need to do your research when it comes to what type of moving specialist you’d like to engage and what the costs are involved with the move. Finding cheap interstate removalists doesn’t have to be very complicated. There are two main categories of removalists: self-pack and full-service removals. The difference is as great as the names imply.
FULL-SERVICE MOVING SPECIALISTS: Finding a cheap interstate moving company isn’t always as simple as you would think! Full-service moving professionals typically are what they say: full-service. They will move you from one destination to another doing all of the work for you. In most cases, they pack your belongings for you and deliver the moving boxes to your new home where you will unpack them yourself. The most you usually do is fill our an inordinate amount of paperwork detailing your belongings, providing inventory in some cases, and coordinating the placement of boxes during their delivery at your new home. It is typically labor-free but it is also the most expensive way to move. You don’t get something for nothing and in full-service moves, you are at the mercy of the removalists.
In some cases, you may save some money by packing your belongings yourself. However, it is still necessary to coordinate and direct the placement of boxes in your new home.
Some full-service removalists will charge by weight making it tough to estimate the correct weight of a move until the truck is loaded and brought to a weigh station – something few removalists do. They generally make an estimate and charge you accordingly. When you insist on having an accurate weight assessment, you could run into hesitancy on their part.
Some full-service removalists will charge by the size of the truck and the number of belongings you are shipping. The more you own, the more you pay.
SELF-PACK REMOVAL SPECIALISTS:
Self-pack removals, on the other hand, are the cheapest way to control costs for an interstate move. Most self-pack removalists refer to Moving Containers such as our company does for our customers. You begin to pack your belongings when you want and how you want. You can take as long as you want or do it in a matter of days. It is entirely at your discretion. Then on a pre-arranged date, we deliver a high-quality, metal shipping container to your home. It’s left there for approximately 72 hours during which time you have the opportunity to load your boxes of belongings into the shipping container.
We return to collect the shipping container, and your belongings show up on time to your new destination. Often, we can deliver your belongings interstate within 24 hours of picking up a container! There are no hidden costs. And, we offer insurance for your belongings, although it’s not likely you will need it. Our lorry drivers are all safe drivers, ethical, and professionals.
Besides being the cheapest method of moving interstate in Australia, we offer the convenience of time. You get to have far more flexibility with a self-pack interstate moving company than you would with a full-service company where you hand over control of your move to them. Because you are packing your items, you can take as much or as little time packing them as you want. If you would rather not do your packing, we can provide names of packers for you. They will do a good job of safely packing your items so that we can transport them for you.
