Over 100 years of Interstate Removals Ipswich Experience
Whybirds has been moving Ipswich families for over 100 years, with our origins dating back to this very city in 1857. Multiple generations of Ipswichians (ok, we just made that word up, but we think it will catch on) have moved with Whybirds, finding our reliability, community investment, and depth of local experience second to none. We support all sizes of moves, none are too big or too small, and our ever-growing network across the state and around the country sends customer goods up and down the Queensland Coast, into the Australian country townships, and through to capital cities across Australia on a daily basis.
As a proudly owned local Australian family business, our ongoing support of local communities in the Queensland and Northern Territory areas is a big part of who we are, and we’re very proud to support our local communities – something we’ve been doing as part of the company since our beginnings read about our founder who began the business in Ipswich in 1857.
What do Ipswich removalists consider when quoting for my move?
Removalists need to take into account many factors when putting a quote together for you. When you understand how that works, you can help to minimise your own moving costs by controlling some of these factors. The two main factors are always going to be your moving origin and destination, and of course the volume of items that you need us to support you with (measured in cubic metres).
There are a few more things that matter, but those tend to be fairly bespoke for each month, and we’ll talk you through those so you understand exactly what they are, helping you reduce or eliminate those costs if you want to do so. Your move consultant can talk you through those different factors, and that will make sure you get an accurate and reliable quote the first time for your peace of mind.
Anything that needs a bit more manpower to move is going to require more labour cost for any removalist, and they need to include that in their quotation. For example, if you have large and heavy items like Pool Tables, Pianos, or heavy garden ornaments. Or, if our trucks are unable to safely park close to your home, just let our consultant know and we’ll ensure we have the appropriate staffing and equipment available on the day of your move.
There’s nothing worse for you or your removalist to find out on the day that additional lifting of moving equipment was needed, and delays and extra costs get incurred that otherwise would not be needed. On moving day, we’re hoping you can just sit back with a cup of your favourite coffee and let our removalist team do the work for you.
Ipswich peak season moving demand is also something to consider as it impacts the removals industry in Queensland and most other states very predictably each year. If you move from November to February, you’ll find that pricing increases for all removalists. Many families will of course find that they are unable to move outside of that time due to school holidays, work-related moves, or other reasons. If that’s you, then our very best advice is to make sure you book in as early as you can – not just to get the best pricing, but also to get reassurance that your move is booked in with a quality AFRA removalist, and you won’t be looking around at the last minute for an unbooked removalist to support you (and at the last minute, the unfortunate reality is that you’ll pay much more, and are unlikely to find a quality AFRA company with the capacity to help).
