Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Brisbane

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 Brisbane is about 40 km. Your goods will be transported on a truck from Ipswich to Brisbane. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Australians love to move in the summer. Home sales, job moves, and business moves are mostly concentrated between November and February. This spike in demand places a strain on the resources of moving companies across the country, which ultimately leads to price increases of at least 10% during the summer months.

  • 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. It is more likely that any quality removalist will give you a better price if you book as early as possible.

To give you an idea of cost, a 25-30 cbm move from Ipswich to Brisbane is likely to be around $80-$90 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.

What to expect with Ipswich to Brisbane Removals?

Ipswich

If you’re currently in Ipswich, you must have learned in your classes or from city tours that Ipswich was established as a mining settlement in 1827 and soon became a major mining centre, creating a strong manufacturing region supporting a lot of job opportunities for both locals and seasonal workers. Before European settlement, the members of the Jagera, Yuggera, and Ugarapul Aboriginal language groups occupied the Ipswich district. Even if there are plenty of amazing employment opportunities and places to visit, there are times when the opportunities you seek are found elsewhere. If you’re ready to leave this all behind, let’s get to know a few important things about the city you’re moving to.

Brisbane

Brisbane was named after Sir Thomas Brisbane, the former governor of New South Wales who established the city’s original penal statement in the 1820s. The city was known to the Aboriginal people as Meanjin, meaning “place shaped like a spike”. If you’re moving to Brisbane, it will be easier for you to attend most of the popular events hosted by the city including the Royal Queensland Exhibition (locally known as Ekka), Brisbane Festival, Brisbane International Film Festival, Buddha Birth Day Festival, Anywhere Festival, Caxton Street Seafood and Wine Festival, and more. For more family-friendly activities, you can visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which is the largest Koala sanctuary in the world. Whether you like exploring on your own or you prefer to bring your family and friends, you won’t run out of things to do and places to visit in Brisbane.

Your move from Darwin to Brisbane

Will see you moving only 40km, and it’s a local move route that our professional removalists are very familiar with. Depending on the size of your home and the services you have requested for your removal plan, most moves will be completed on the same day (that is, unless you need to put your items in storage for a while). If you’re not staying in Brisbane for a long time and you plan on returning to Ipswich after some time, putting your belongings in storage in Ipswich is an option you can consider instead of taking everything with you.

Whether you’re moving to Brisbane for better employment opportunities (or to be closer to the office) or school options or just a change in scenery, you can rely on the Whybirds team to provide you with a quality moving experience.
