Sydney Backloading as Well as Dedicated Loads
Backloading is highly efficient in and out of Sydney, particularly to other major cities. Due to the enormous population and affluence in Sydney, it has more interstate migrations than any other city in Australia.
In the 2014-2015 year, 178 000 people moved in and out of greater New South Wales region of which the larger majority came through Sydney to reach their final destination. This means that with greater volumes comes a greater number of resources to plug into, which leads to more competition and better value for you.
You may also be interested in a dedicated truck or container for you move. Whilst typically this option can be a little more costly, Sydney’s affluence seems to support this in greater numbers. If you have ever moved locally, a dedicated truck or container is what you would have received, this is the same with interstate although far less common.
This is something we are proud to offer you.
What is Backloading and How Will it Help Your Move to or From Sydney
If you are more focused on price, but still expect high quality service that wont leave you disappointed, then Backloading is an excellent option to consider.
Backloading in short, is the process of getting a load “back” from a destination to share the costs of the trip between a few customers, but also includes two or more jobs or customers possessions in any truck or container in any single direction.
Example of a Backloading cycle.
Consider you are Job A
We load Job A on the truck first, then travel within the same city or on the way to the destination and pick up Job B. We may also pick up Job C and Job D. Once we arrive at your destination, we unload in reverse going to Job D delivery first, Job C second, Job B third and then we finally unload your possessions safely at your destination. Then we may go to pick up Job E, F and G and so on and head back to the city we started.
You can see the need for excellent systems and procedures here, especially when you consider all of the above jobs have specific needs and desired uplift and delivery times as well. This is why we insist you consider not just choosing on price but also on the reputation and expertise of the removalist you hire. The AIR network infact specialises in this kind of move and have spent many years, over thousands of customers manicuring our service to what it is today.
How Much Does it Cost to Move to Or From Sydney
As mentioned above, we recommend you steer clear of claims of instant online Quotes or removalists who don’t make personal contact verbally over the phone. Moving is NOT black and white and this is particularly the case with Sydney relocations.
As you can see in the above example, there is a lot to factor in just in the procedures, then on top of that, there is the issue of access to your property. Is it steep? Is it an apartment block with an elevator? What about access to the elevator and other tennants? What about difficult parking? Semi trailers and even smaller moving trucks find it very difficult to park in small streets when we have to use a ramp to load and unload safely.
All of these factors can affect the cost or as we like to call it, investment in peace of mind.
To feed your curiosity a little, an average interstate move in or out of Sydney can range anywhere from $600 – $2500 and can also increase, sometimes considerably with just a few factors like access issues, higher volume of possessions and greater travelling distance.
Be diligent, be detailed and spend a little extra time now, and save time, stress and money later.
All Charges Are Based On Volume and Distance
Interstate moves are based on a few primary factors, the volume of possessions you have measured in cubic meters and then the distance your goods will travel.
To give an idea, an average 2 bedroom apartment can have approximately 15-20 m3. This is an approximation so please don’t take it as yours. Here are a few measurements just to give you an idea:
- A standard 3 seater couch = 1.5 m3
- A standard lounge chair = .6 m3
- A standard top loader washing machine = .5 m3
- A standard single door fridge = 1 m3
- 5 x Tea Chest Boxes (large) = .9 m3
The distance you are moving can easily be calculated by using Google Maps now days.
Other changes that cost extra include insurance and extra services like post move cleaning.
Our Removalists Schedules Can Impact Moving Cost
The AIR network run quite tight schedules due to the efficiency of our operation and how we manage our resources. Depending on the time of year you move and how much in advance you make a booking, a busy schedule can also influence the cost of your move. Similar to a reputable Airline like Virgin Australia, as seats on a plane fill up, the prices go up too. Trucks that are certainly going to be full can cost a little more, particularly in the peak season.
As mentioned in the opening header above, approximately 178 000 people move in and out of Sydney a year so this translates to good news for you provided you don’t leave it to the last minute which is extremely common. Make the time now and get the ball rolling on your move.
