Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Adelaide

Finding a moving company that offers the quality of moving service you need, at the time you need it, at the price that fits in your budget can be challenging. We’ve outlined a few key factors that will impact the price of your move in order to help you understand how you can potentially reduce your moving costs.

  • Move Size – any removalist will estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). Your fridge is about one cubic metre, a queen sized bed is around 1.7cbm, and a small one bedroom apartment holds about 10cbm of items. A larger family home is typically going to be over 35cbm.
  • Distance between houses – in this case, the distance from Ipswich to Adelaide is about 2020 km. Your goods will be transported on a truck from Ipswich to Adelaide. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Australians love to move in the summer. Most home sales, job moves, and business moves are concentrated between November and February. As a result, moving companies across the country find themselves stretched, which in turn leads to the need to raise prices by at least 10% during the summer.

  • 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 you have may require an extra bit of help. Stone garden ornaments, pool tables, pianos, all might require an extra man to help with the lift. If you’re taking heavy and bulky items during the move, let us know in advance and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – If you’re moving in summer, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. Booking a month in advance is usually sufficient during the winter months. Any good moving company will be able to give you a better deal if you book early.

To give you an idea of cost, a 10-15 cbm move from Ipswich to Adelaide is likely to be around $170-$180 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.

What to expect with Ipswich to Adelaide Removals?

Ipswich

If you’re currently in Ipswich, you may have learned from history lessons or tours that prior to European settlement, the district of Ipswich was occupied by members of the Jagera, Yuggera, and Ugarapul Aboriginal language groups and was traditionally known in the Yagara language as Tulmur. If you’re a history buff and you are interested in learning about different cultures, you’ve probably had a great time visiting the many historic sites including the Ipswich Little Theatre and the Burley Griffin Incinerator, Old Ipswich Courthouse, Ginn Cottage, the Old Ipswich Courthouse and more.

The Lamington cake was said to have been first baked and presented to the Governor at the opening of the Ipswich Technical College in June 1900. Even if you love living in Ipswich, you may feel that it’s time to continue life in another city. No matter what your reason is, it’s good to learn about your new home before the move so you’ll know what to expect.

Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital of South Australia. Despite having the benefits of a modern and thriving city, you may find it surprising that life in this city is pretty quiet and laid back. Prior to British settlement, the Adelaide city centre was inhabited by the indigenous Kaurna people and was known as Tarndanyangga which means “place of the red kangaroo”.

When you’re done unpacking your belongings, get to know your new city by visiting some of the popular attractions in the city including Adelaide Botanic Garden, Migration Museum, Adelaide Zoo, and more. Adelaide hosts the largest display of Aboriginal artefacts. The collection is displayed at the South Australian Museum, portraying the past and present lives of the indigenous communities in Australia. Additionally, it is also known as the Opal Capital of Australia, Adelaide is popular around the world for having the best-selling opals.
