Queensland is 1.8 Million square KM’s of striking beauty; from jungle and thick bushland to desert and perhaps most famously the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef. It truly is a great place to call home whether you are moving to or from this great state. It also presents some interesting challenges from a logistics perspective.
Did you know the distance between Brisbane and Cairns is 18kms further than the distance between Brisbane and Melbourne?
So this long distance with relatively small populations peppered over dozens of towns and cities up the east coast of Queensland make for challenges with moving your possessions in a cost effective and flexible manner. However you are in luck!
The AIR network give you both. Read on.

Queensland Backloading as Well as Dedicated Loads
There are some other factors that come into play that could greatly influence our
- How close to the Bruce Highway is the place you are moving to?
- Is it remote and to the west?
- Are you moving to a mining town?
- How much volume do your possessions equal?
- What trucks and or containers are available at the time of your move?
- Do you require any short or long term storage?
The key we feel to all of this is that you are working with a company that can offer options and choices to give you more freedom to go with what feels right.
What is Backloading and How Will it Help Your Move to or From Queensland
So what is Backloading? It is exactly as it sounds. It began as a “Load Back” from a destination. It has however evolved way beyond that into a science we are very proud to offer. By sharing a particular trip with others, you share the overheads to make the journey which benefits you in less cost. Not only do we perform a load back but we
carefully load or stow multiple jobs to and from the destination. Brisbane to Cairns is a great example however you can consider it the same as Melbourne or Sydney to Cairns or anywhere in between. We may load a Job in Brisbane, a job in Maroochydore, a job in Mackay and a job in Airlie Beach and then deliver all of them to Cairns if that’s their destination. The same happens when we head home.
Shared Space = Shared Costs and Shared Savings.
Just like UberX except we have been doing this for decades.
How Much Does it Cost to Move to Or From Queensland
How long is a piece of string? That said, when you book the AIR network for your move you are entering into a fixed contractual quote you can rely on. We don’t just ad cost because we have won your business unlike some of our misguided competitors.
Reputation is everything and word of mouth is the prize. We live by this rule and it works. It’s becoming exceedingly more popular to seek answers without human involvement these days on Google particularly when it comes to the price of something. We strongly encourage you to avoid that with a moving quote. Moving is a very dynamic game that can rarely, if ever, be quoted accurately without an experienced professional casting an eye over it all and getting more detailed info. Detail is where they stress-free promise comes from.
To satisfy any itch you may have, an interstate or intrastate move within Queensland can cost anywhere from $600 to $2500. Then consider this can be understated by thousands depending on some of the factors mentioned on this page.
All Charges Are Based On Volume and Distance
We measure volume in cubic meters (m3). So what’s a cubic meter when it comes to furniture? A standard single door fridge is exactly 1m3.
Here’s a few others to bring you up to speed:
- A single bed (ensemble or with frame) = .5 m3
- Standard Washing Machine = .5 m3
- Queen Size Bed = 1.2 m3
- Standard Chest of Draws (Tall Boy) = .6m3
- Access to properties. Stairs? Flat? Poor parking? Steep driveway? Etc..
- Insurance with any specific requirements
- Deviation off the Highway
