For some, the thought of moving residencies can be extremely daunting and stressful with everything that's included; attending inspections and finding a new home, managing a loan and finally packing and moving. Without a doubt,the cost of a removalists might not be cheap. However, the price is worth getting the job done right rather than damaging your LED TV or damaging your back from the heavy lifting. Removalist jobs don't have to be just moving items from point A to B. They can also provide special services upon request, such as furniture disassembly or even packing and unpacking boxes for you.
On Oneflare, the most job requests require large furniture, white goods, beds and boxes.
|Beds||Boxes||White Goods||Large Furniture||Piano||Pool|
|$149 - $402|
|$106 - $251|
|$131 - $555|
|$278 - $701|
|$285 - $660|
This is an obvious factor that affects the price you will be expected to pay. Keep in mind that although most removalist job requests are for moving residencies within the same state, you can also request a removalist to take your belongings interstate; the extra distance will undoubtedly bring the price up.
As previously mentioned, there are basic removalist services that can be thought of as the bare minimum services provided, and there are additional special services that can make your move more seamless and hassle-free.
If price is a big consideration and you don’t mind doing a bit of extra work and organising, there are definitely ways to reduce the time and money spent on the job:
Avoid doing a full grocery shop leading up to the move in order to reduce waste for food that requires refrigeration.
Moving to and from a house will be a vastly different job than if it’s an apartment. Apartments will require considerations such as lifts, stairs and parking, which will need more effort to organise.
People that move from apartments pay between $171 - $418, whereas moving from a house will cost between $163 - $559. When moving to an apartment, the expected price range is from $171 - $422. On the other hand, people moving to a house will pay a total cost of $160 - $556.
Generally, the conclusion that can be made is that moving to and from a house is usually quoted a higher price on Oneflare - but this could be because usually houses hold more furniture and belongings than apartments. It’s important to note that while houses have a higher and larger price range than apartments, apartments are usually more complicated moves that require more planning
Usually this can be determined by providing the number of rooms in your house; this can include the number of bedrooms or total rooms such as the kitchen and lounge room as well.
|# of Bedrooms||Price Range|
|1||$4,500 - $79,300|
|2||$1,500 - $119,900|
|3||$116,800 - $385,900|
The amount to move will also determine what type of vehicle is needed (e.g. truck, ute) and also how many removalists are required.
Removalists do not require any formal qualifications to undertake work. However, there are some certificates available for the removalist trade. If a removalist is a member of the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA), they will have Public Liability insurance and therefore will provide insurance for your belongings in transit.
