How To Save Money Moving (With Backloading)

How To Save Money Moving (With Backloading)

By Skyler Benson | 20/05/2019

Moving interstate across the country is often a costly process. There are so many expenses involved with relocating – and that’s before even considering the cost of moving.

There is a solution to help slash your moving costs, yet most people aren’t even aware it exists, or how it works.

It’s called backloading, and it can seriously save you a lot of hard earned money, without compromising on service.

What is backloading, and how can it save you money moving?

What is Backloading?

Backloading is used when a removalist truck is driving back to base after a successful move. Instead of having an empty truck making the return trip, homeowners can rent out space in the empty truck. It’s possible to move anything from a single piece of furniture to an entire house.

How Does Backloading Work?

You will also be sharing space in the truck with other people who are also transporting their belongings by using backloading. Every item is clearly labelled and separated so that there is no chance of belongings being mixed up or delivered to the wrong location.

Movers also keep a detailed checklist of every item which is loaded and unloaded during backloading.

How Does Backloading Save You Money?

Best of all, you only pay for the actual space you use in the truck – slashing the price of a regular move, where you need to rent out an entire truck.

How Frequently Is Backloading Available?

We have many trucks on the road, completing deliveries every day, meaning you won’t have to wait a long time.

Move Only Necessary Items

To save even more money moving interstate, consider getting rid of the items you no longer want or need. Either sell them, give them to friends or family, or donate them to charity. This will reduce the cost of moving by meaning you won’t need to pay for as much space when backloading.
