Over 100 years of Interstate Removals Toowoomba Experience
Whybirds has been serving Toowoomba families for over 100 years, back before the days when Toowoomba was even a town (Toowoomba was established as a town in 1858, Whybirds was founded the year before, in 1857). Generations of Toowoomba families have moved with Whybirds, finding our reliability and dedication to our loyal customer base in Toowoomba second to none. No move is too big or too small, and our fleet of trucks and containers send customer goods up and down the Queensland Coast, back and forth to Toowoomba, into the Australian outback townships, and through to major cities across Australia on a daily basis.
Our ongoing support of the local communities in the Queensland and Northern Territory areas have been a consistent part of what we stand for as a family-owned business, and has been that way since our founder began the business in Ipswich in 1857.
What do removalists consider when quoting for my move?
Understanding how Removalists put together a quotation for you will help you reduce your moving costs. There are several variables they take into account – the two main factors are always going to be where you’re moving from and to, and the volume of items that you need to include in your move (measured in cubic metres).
There are a few more considerations we need to consider when putting your quote together for you, but most door to door house moves are not impacted by these. Your move consultant can talk you through those different factors to see if any apply to you, and then make sure you get an accurate and reliable quote the first time for your peace of mind. And remember, even if another mover doesn’t mention these things at the time of the quotation, that doesn’t mean that you aren’t going to be charged for them later – better to know these things up front an in advance of your move and avoid those surprises.
Large and heavy items need additional manpower to move. Additional staffing will increase the cost of your move. Examples might include Pool Tables, Pianos, or heavy garden ornaments. Also, if a removalist truck is unable to safely park close enough to your home, just let our consultant know and we’ll ensure we have the appropriate staffing and equipment available on the day of your move.
Be upfront with your move consultant on any issues you think the moving crew is likely to encounter – there’s nothing worse than finding this out on moving day that your moving crew are not prepared for your move properly because they were not made aware of some of the challenges that might come with the move. Our teams are used to navigating difficult moves, but it makes it easier on everyone if they know in advance what they are going to encounter.
Toowoomba seasonality is also something to consider, and it moves generally in line with the removals industry in Queensland and most other states very predictably each year. If you move from November to February, pricing increases during this peak season for all removalists. As many removalists may be based in Brisbane, you’ll find that rates for Toowoomba may be more impacted than most at that time of the year. Our best advice if you need to move during the peak season is to make sure you book in early with a quality AFRA registered removalist – not just to get the best pricing, but also to get reassurance that your move is booked in and you won’t be looking around at the last minute for an unbooked removalist to support you (and booking at the last minute is going to mean that you’ll pay much more, and are unlikely to find a reputable company with sufficient capacity to help when you need it).
