Local and Interstate Removals: What to Expect

Interstate and Local Removals in NSW: What You Should Expect

Are you planning to move home or business in Australia? Whatever size the move, there’s a significant difference between moving goods locally and between states. Unlike a local move, which can be completed quickly and at a lower cost, an interstate removal requires larger vehicles, experienced driving and exceptional organisational skills, which can make it difficult to pull off by yourself. T&U Removals is here to help with our quick, efficient and stress-free local and interstate removals for homes and businesses.

Local Removals

Local moves typically take place within a city or state. Because moves of this kind usually involve fewer goods and shorter distances, they can be handled by a single vehicle and fewer personnel.

Local removals are often quick, cost-effective and require fewer resources than transporting goods interstate.

Interstate Removals

Moving interstate tends to require goods and vehicles to cross state lines. In order to cover long distances while safeguarding items, interstate removals require larger trucks that are safe on highways even when loaded with goods. An interstate move costs more because of the vehicles, extra personnel and packing materials needed.

What to Expect With Interstate and Local Moving Services

Here’s what to expect when moving locally:

  • Local moving services charge by the hour or offer a flat rate based on the type of move. This means you can compare the prices of local moving companies to find a fee structure that aligns with your budget.

  • Shorter distances means that a move can be scheduled at short-notice

  • Less money spent on packing materials as some goods can be loaded as they are

On the other hand, an interstate move requires:

  • Larger vehicles that can cover long distances

  • A higher budget to cover fuel costs, tolls, quality packing materials to protect goods in transit, and personnel.

  • Secure short-term or long-term storage if the need arises

  • Compliance with state regulations

Tips for a Smooth Relocation

Check out these tips from the team at T&U Removals to guarantee a smooth relocation:

  • Declutter before you pack: this will reduce the volume of belongings you move, thus reducing the overall cost of the move.

  • Be sure to update addresses for all utilities and subscriptions

  • Use high-quality packing materials, including as boxes, tape, bubble wrap and furniture pads. It’s no use packing everything in expensive boxes and sealing them with cheap packing tape.

  • Hire a professional moving company with a reputation for customer service and experienced personnel: this will take a significant portion of the stress off your shoulders.

  • Pack an overnight bag that contains documents, medications and other items so you can access them quickly when needed.

  • You might also want to pack a separate, small box with a kettle, some mugs, tea, coffee and milk, and enough cutlery to see you through until you unpack all your kitchen items.
