Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Toowoomba

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). To give you an idea…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 Toowoomba is about 90 km. Your belongings (furniture and personal effects) will be transported via truck from Ipswich to Toowoomba. In general, the longer the distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Australians prefer moving during the summer. Home sales, job moves, and business moves are mostly concentrated between November and February. Because of the spike in demand, moving companies face a strain on resources, which in turn leads to prices spiking 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 – There are times when preparing and moving bulky/heavy items 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 and have our removalists take the appropriate equipment to safely move your belongings.
  • 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 20-25 cbm move from Ipswich to Toowoomba is likely to be around $80-$90 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.
