Cost of Removalist Toowoomba to Ipswich

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 Toowoomba to Ipswich is about 90km. Your goods will be transported on a truck from Toowoomba to Ipswich. 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, which is why we prefer to park as close as possible to your home.
  • 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.

What to expect with Toowoomba to Ipswich Removals?

Toowoomba

If you’re currently in Toowoomba, you probably heard about the different origins of its name. Some believe that it is a variation on “woomba woomba” which means “reeds in the swap”, whilst some locals say that it was derived from the Aboriginal word “Tawampa” which means “swamp”.

Whether you’ve been living in Toowoomba since childhood or have spent a few years in the city, you may have participated in some activities organised by the council and private organisations to celebrate the annual Carnival of Flowers. It is also during this time that the streets come alive and locals/visitors are welcomed by a vibrant display of colourful flowers on the streets.

Whilst there are plenty of places to visit and activities to try, there’s a possibility that you’ll find reasons to continue life somewhere else. Let’s get to know your new city.

Ipswich

Ipswich is the oldest provincial city in Queensland. The city was called “Limestone Hill” by convicts who were employed to quarry limestones. It was renamed in 1842 after then-Governor Gipss saw the drawing of the town plan. Whilst the reason for choosing the name was not confirmed, Henry Rous (the second son of Viscount Dunwich, the Earl of Stradbroke) reputedly said that the name was chosen because it reminded him of Ipswich, England.

Aside from its rich culture and history, there are plenty of things you can try to help yourself adjust to your new home and city. When you’re not too busy, take a walk through Queens Park, experience a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony, join a historic “Top of Town” tour, enjoy a meal at the Dovetails Restaurant, and visit the local markets.

Your move from Toowoomba to Ipswich

Will see you moving 90km. Toowoomba and Ipswich Removals may be considered as “local moves” due to the short distance and travel time it takes to complete the move. Depending on the size of your home and the services you have requested for your removal plan, the uplift will be likely completed within one day, before our trucks drive to your new address to deliver your belongings according to the agreed removal timing. If your new residence can’t accommodate all your belongings or you’re planning on moving back to Toowoomba, consider leaving some items for storage in Toowoomba for safekeeping and take them back when you’re ready.
