Cost of Removalist Darwin to Sunshine Coast

The cost of hiring a removalist is probably going to be one of the first questions you ask, and whilst the answer is likely not as straightforward as you’d like, we can help you at least understand how you can manage those costs, and minimise them where possible.

Here’s a breakdown of they key factors that will influence the price of your move:

  • Move Volume – we estimate your move volume in cubic metres (cbm). A small studio apartment might be 5cbm, and large family home is typically 35cbm or more.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Sunshine Coast is about 3,500 km. We use rail on some lanes, and roads on many more where that is not possible. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost
  • Seasonality – Pricing across the country is always going to be higher during peak season, by at least 10%. Removalists across Australia are in high demand in the summer – they work long hours and weekends, and it’s hard and hot work in the northern summer! Inevitably, this means average costs are higher at that time of the year. For Darwin, that peak can be even more pronounced.

  • Access – Ideally, our moving trucks will be able to park right by your front door, making the distance from your home to our trucks as short as possible. If that’s not possible, no problem, but it means your move takes longer, and in some cases, we need to keep a staff member as security on the truck to look after your belongings.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Our removalists are strong, and have all the right gear to move your heavy items, but on some items they require an extra man (or more) to help them move those bigger things.
  • Early Booking – If you book early, you’ll almost always get better pricing than if you book late. If you’re moving in summer, we recommend that you book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. In the winter, one month is typically ok.

As an indication of cost, a 10 – 15cbm move from Darwin to Sunshine Coast is likely to be around $295-$300 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Sunshine Coast Removals?

Darwin

Darwin is one of the most isolated cities in Australia. Whilst it is far from other Australian cities, it is only an hour away by flight from other SouthEast Asian countries. In fact, it is closer to Bali than Australia’s capital city. If you’ve lived in Darwin for many years, you might have heard or even tried the iconic Darwin stubby which held six regular stubbies of NT Draught. It was created in 1958 and although its production has stopped in 2015, the drink is still considered as one of the symbols of the Top End. Living in Darwin also means you get to explore scenic stretches of desert, natural monoliths, freshwater swimming holes, and other natural sights like Kakadu National Park, Uluru, Katherine Gorge, and Karlu Karlu Devils Marbles. If you haven’t explored those and your mind is set about moving on, here’s what you can expect from the city you’re moving to.

Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast is a beautiful urban region in South East Queensland. Before the Sunshine Coast became the gorgeous locality that enticed you to move, the region was once home to runaway convicts due to its close proximity to Brisbane (then called Moreton Bay). Now, Sunshine Coast is a centre for tourism welcoming more than 3.2 million visitors annually. The Sunshine Coast enjoys about 300 days of sunshine every year, making it easy to explore several stretches of unbroken beaches – from Sunshine Beach near Noosa to Coolum Beach; the coast from Point Arkwright to Mudjimba; the Maroochydore–Mooloolaba stretch; and from Buddina past the Caloundra CBD to Pelican Waters. If you’re interested in the extraterrestrial, the Glass Mountains surrounding Sunshine Coast are a popular UFO attraction, with some sightings dating way back to 1956.
