Cost of Removalist Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay

Selecting a moving company that can provide you the quality of moving service you need, at the time you need it, at the price point that works for you can be a tiresome task! To help you understand how you can potentially reduce your moving costs, we’ve listed a few key factors that will influence the price of your move.

  • Move Size – any removalist will estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). Your fridge is about one cubic metre, a modular lounge suite might be as much as four cbm, 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 Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay is about 270 km. To improve efficiency for our customers, we use rail on some lanes, roads where that is not possible, and often a combination of both. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost
  • Seasonality – Australians love to move in the summer. School holidays, home sales, job relocations, and business moves all tend to be concentrated at one time of the year, between November to February. That spike in demand constrains the resources of moving companies around the country and ultimately means prices increase 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. Just let us know if you have something like that, and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – If you’re moving in summer, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. In the winter, one month is typically ok. The earlier you book the more likely you are to get a better price from any quality removalist.

To give you an idea of cost, a 30-35 cbm move from Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay is likely to be around $130-$140per cbm. Pricing per cbm drops quickly as volume increases for moves larger than that.

What to expect with Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay Removals?

Sunshine Coast

If you’re currently in Sunshine Coast, you may have been to its unbroken beaches from Sunshine Beach near Noosa to Coolum Beach; the coast from Point Arkwright to Mudjimba; the Maroochydore–Mooloolaba stretch; and from Buddina past the Caloundra CBD to Pelican Waters. Aside from being in close proximity to beaches, there are also several interesting places to visit in Sunshine Coast like Glass Mountains, the area famous for UFO sightings. Most of the UFO reports originate from the area where the Glass House is located, with some submitted way back in 1956, and many of them are sent to Queensland’s UFO research team. Perhaps some of the Alien visitors were there for a quick pint at the Ettamogah Pub which is considered the most photographed pub in the world. However, if you’re over the Aliens, and feel that you have explored most of the interesting places on the Sunshine Coast and you’re ready to move on, learning about the new location that you’re moving to can be just as exciting.

Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a beautiful town that has become a popular watering hole for backpackers and holidaymakers in New South Wales. As Captain James Cook sailed up the east coast of Australia, he named Cape Byron after Vice-Admiral John Byron (nicknamed Foul Weather Jack), who was the grandfather of Lord Byron the famous English poet in the 19th century. Before that, the place was called “Cavanbah” (meaning “meeting place”) by the Bundjalung people who are believed to have inhabited the area for thousands of years. The town is home to the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse which began operating in 1901. If you’re fond of water activities, moving to Byron Bay will be an excellent move for you. Byron Bay has many famous dive spots and surf beaches where you can take part in your favourite water activities whilst appreciating its beautiful nature. Once you’re ready to explore, consider visiting Julian Rocks, a famous dive site where a mix of warm tropical currents and cool temperate waters attract thousands of species of tropical fish.
