How To Move Interstate (On A Tight Budget)

By Nextl3v3l | 14/11/2019

Moving interstate is often an exciting time, but it can be an expensive process. It’s often easy to focus on your new lifestyle, a different culture, and the weather. But the longer you put off organising your interstate move, the more likely you are to lose sleep and stress about how much it’s going to cost. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a small fortune for interstate removalists.

Let’s take a look at tips from removalists on how to move interstate on a tight budget.

Throw Out Anything You No Longer Need

When you are packing to move, it’s the perfect time to declutter, because you have to sort through every item anyway.

By getting rid of things you no longer need, not only will you be reducing the clutter you bring into your new home. You will also be reducing the number of physical boxes which needs to be packed. This can lead to your stuff fitting in a smaller sized removals truck and a lower price.

It will also save your time and energy from having to pack them, and then unpack them at your new home.

Besides making it easier to set up your new home, you can even sell anything you no longer need and make some extra money to put towards the cost of moving.

Be Flexible With Your Moving Day

The more you plan your move in advance, the cheaper the price will be. Last-minute moves tend to be more expensive.

Avoiding school holidays, public holidays, and weekends can also help reduce the price. Since a lot of people also take an RDO on a Friday, prices tend to be more expensive. When the weather is warmer over the summer, prices are usually higher.

For the best price, aim for a move between Tuesday to Thursday during a non-peak time. By bundling services such as packing services, or removals storage can also help get a better deal.

Consider Back-loading

If you are flexible with your moving date, back-loading provides better interstate moving rates. It also ensures the same premium service.

There are two different types of back-loading:

– You can share a truck with other customers and only pay for the space that you need.

– You can book a full vehicle which would otherwise be returning empty after completing an interstate delivery.

The only downside is that you may need to wait a few days until there is an available truck.

Choose A Reputable Moving Company

When moving interstate on a budget, it only seems logical to go with the cheapest moving company with the lowest quote, right? If so, you’d be making a huge mistake. A cheap moving company might provide you with the lowest initial quote. But, you will quickly discover that there are many add-ons, extras, and surcharges which are not included in the initial price.

You also run the risk of a cheap company hiring subcontractors who don’t handle your belongings with care. Are you willing to risk damage to valuable and irreplaceable items? They may also have double booked, which means they don’t show up on time or deliver your belongings on schedule to your new home.

In the long run, it can end up costing you way more than a reliable and trustworthy moving company. A professional moving company will provide you with transparent prices. They will also ensure a professional, honest, and comprehensive service without extra fees.
