Moving Home Cost
Moving House & Moving Home Estimated Costs
Like most interstate removalists, we receive calls from potential clients every day asking:
“I am moving from (point A to point B) and have a standard (1, 2, 3 or 4) bedroom house, what would be the estimated cost of moving home interstate?”.
Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Working out a rough estimated cost for moving house interstate from one town to another can be very tricky because there are so many variables involved. The size of your load or amount of furniture you have is a big factor, and what one family may have in their 3 bedroom home can vary greatly from what another family may have in their home. This in turn affects the size of your load and therefore working out an average estimated cost for interstate furniture removals is difficult.
For instance, we have moved 3 bedrooms homes with a load size of 20 cubic meters, and then we have also done furniture removals on a 3 bedroom house with a load size of 40 cubic meters. This is just one of the many variables which does make it hard to give clients an estimated cost price for house removals.
The size of your load is calculated in “Cubic Meters” and (like most removalists) we have a computer system which allows us to calculate the cubic meter value of a load by entering the items of that load into the computer. This is why it is best for you to complete the online quote request form by clicking the button above so that we can work out an accurate price for you.
Average Cost of Moving Home
So why don’t we just take 30 cubic meters as an
average cost of moving a 3 bedroom house and multiply that by the rate?
Because a difference of 10 cubic meters (plus or minus) can be a difference of $1000 - $2000 depending on where you are moving to and from, not to mention the other variables which will also adjust the estimated moving house cost price like:
- Is it a ground level home or are there stairs or a lift involved?
- How close can the truck park to your front door?
- Can the truck make it down your driveway?
- Are there any antiques or unusually heavy items we need to cater for?
- We will require the use of a smaller truck as a ferry vehicle due to access limitations?
And all of these questions including more need to be asked for both the collection and delivery points.
We will also need an accurate list of all the items which you have in your home which you plan to move. But do not worry about the number of boxes just yet, as we can work that out once you have finished packing and it is getting closer to the collection date of your furniture removals. Some removalists may give you a very rough estimate for moving house, but that is exactly what it is with the limited details they have, very rough! Because of our knowledge which has been obtained through years of experience in the industry, we understand that each home removals is different with its own set of variables and requirements. This is why we prefer not to give out an estimated cost as it can and probably will be completely different from an accurate quote.
