When moving a distance like this, it is always a tossup as a interstate removalist to treat this as a local removal or backload it as an interstate removal. The distance between the 2 cities is 116 kms, if we treat the job as a local move and send the truck up to Pt Macquarie there is a travelling time aspect to the move which is an added cost that would not be incurred if the job was treated as a backload BUT you furniture gets moved by itself. Which is more desirable and generally faster. The problem with back loading is that you share a truck with up to 8 other furniture removals and whilst a skilled removalist packer can make it fit without issues or damage it takes a bit more time and skill to make it work. If you furniture is in the truck by itself then I is easier to make it fit, there is less padding needed and generally the load is not as tight. I would say that the more desirable option would be to pay a little extra and treat it as a local job. Ultimately it is our job as interstate removalists to give you the options and our professional opinion and have you make the decision you are most comfortable with.
