Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Gladstone
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 Gladstone is about 570 km. Your goods will be transported on a truck from Ipswich to Gladstone. 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. Due to this spike in demand, moving companies throughout the country are forced to raise prices by 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. When you book early, you are more likely to get a better deal from any quality moving company.
To give you an idea of cost, a 20-25 cbm move from Ipswich to Gladstone is likely to be around $150 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.
What to expect with Ipswich to Gladstone Removals?
If you’re currently in Ipswich, you probably know that Ipswich was established in 1827 as a mining settlement, the city soon became a major mining centre and a strong manufacturing region — creating plenty of job opportunities for both locals and migrants. Year later, Ipswich has become a multicultural city with residents coming from more than 160 countries, speaking 152 languages. Before European settlement, the members of the Jagera, Yuggera, and Ugarapul Aboriginal language groups occupied the Ipswich district. Make the most out of the city’s subtropical climate and enjoy walking around to check out the many heritage-listed sites, historical buildings, modern shopping centres, and well-equipped libraries.
Gladstone is one of the few locations in the British Empire named after William Ewart Gladstone. The city was named after him when he was serving as the British Colonial Secretary. The city was declared a municipality in 1863 and was proclaimed a city in 1976. Prior to European settlement, the Gladstone region was home to the Gooreng Gooreng, Toolooa (or Tulua), Meerooni, and Baiali (Byellee) Aboriginal Tribes. The coastal city also served as the main port for coal from the callide valley. Once you’ve settled in, you may start exploring some of the most popular destinations in Gladstone including the heritage-listed Gladstone Goal in Park Terrace, the National Australia Bank, the Savings Bank of South Australia, Tresylva Park, Railway Yards and many more.
Your move from Ipswich to Gladstone
Will see you moving only 570km. Due to the distance and travel time required to reach your destination and complete your move, your move to Gladstone won’t be considered a local move, and therefore needs more than one day to uplift and deliver. Depending on the size of your home and the services included in your removals plan for a more convenient move, the uplift will occur on the first day, before arranging delivery of your goods to your new address for delivery per the agreed schedule. If your new residence can’t accommodate all your belongings or you’re planning on moving back to Ipswich, consider leaving some items for storage in Ipswich for safekeeping and take them back when you’re ready.
Whether you’re moving to Gladstone 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.
