Cost of Removalist Gold Coast to Byron Bay

Selecting a moving company that can provide you the quality of moving service you need, at the time you need it, at the price point that works for you can be difficult. To help you understand how you can potentially reduce your moving costs, we’ve listed a few key factors that will influence the price of your move.

  • Move Size – any removalist will estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). Your kitchen fridge is about one cubic metre, and a small one bedroom apartment holds about 10cbm of items. It takes about 9 or 10 nicely stacked larger packing boxes (tea chest size) to make one cbm. A larger family home is typically going to be over 35cbm.
  • Distance between houses – in this case, the distance from Gold Coast to Byron Bay is about 91 km. To improve efficiency for our customers, we use rail on some lanes, roads where that is not possible, and often a combination of both. Generally, the longer the distance, the more expensive it is.
  • Seasonality – Australians love moving in the summer. School holidays, home sales, job relocations, and business moves all tend to be concentrated at one time of the year, between November to February. The higher demand over the summer months constrains moving companies across the country, which inevitably means prices increase by at least 10%.

  • Access – Our removalists can lift or trolley your things as far as needed, but of course, that takes longer, so our preference is always to be able to park as close to your home as possible.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Some items, especially the heavy and bulky ones, may require extra assistance. Stone garden ornaments, pool takes, pianos, all might require an extra man to help with the lift. Just let us know if you are moving such items, and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – Book your move at least two months ahead if you are moving in the summer since this is usually the time when almost all removalists are booked out. In the winter, one month is typically ok. The earlier you book the more likely you are to get a better price from any quality removalist.
