Cost of Removalist Tweed Heads 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 Tweed Heads to Ipswich is about 120km. Your goods will be transported on a truck from Tweed Heads 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, 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.

What to expect with Tweed Heads to Ipswich Removals?

Tweed Heads

If you’re currently in Tweed Heads, you probably learned from history classes or tours that John Oxley, an explorer and surveyor, reached the estuary in 1823 and took shelter in a small island off Fingal Head which he named Turtle Island (now Cook Island).

Oxley named the river after the Tweed River which separates northern England and Scotland. The town was named Tweed Heads as it is the entrance to the Tweed River. During your stay, you may have had the chance to visit some of the most popular tourist destinations in Tweed Heads including Border Ranges, Springbrook, Nightcap, Lamington National Park, Mount Warning (Wollumbin) and more.

If you’ve found better opportunities or a new home in Ipswich, and it’s time to move, here follows a quick introduction to your new city!

Ipswich

Ipswich was once the home of convicts because it is close to the Moreton Bay penal settlement. The majority of those who have relocated to the area were employed quarrying limestone. The town was surveyed by Henry Wade in 1842, at the same time the area around Brisbane was opened to free settlers.

After some time, coal was discovered at Redbank and there were around 50 mines in the area in 1843. The city’s rapid growth continued over the years and became the city that you know today. There’s a lot more to learn about the rich history of Ipswich that you can learn once you relocate.

You can take guided tours with your family or on your own. Either way, the tour will be a good opportunity to familiarise yourself with places you can visit to relax or meet with old friends.

Your move from Tweed Heads to Ipswich

Will see you moving 120km. Whilst Tweed Heads is in another state, it may be considered as a “local move” 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 may take anywhere from an hour to all day, before our trucks drive to your new address to deliver your belongings. If your new residence can’t accommodate all your belongings or you’re planning on moving back to Tweed Heads, consider leaving some items for storage in Tweed Heads for safekeeping and take them back when you’re ready.

Whether you’re moving to Ipswich for a new job (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.
