Victoria Backloading as Well as Dedicated Loads
A bad result is not having options to choose from, an excellent result is having the power to choose what feels right for your move. Australian Interstate Removalists (AIR) boasts one of Victoria’s largest moving networks. We offer that pool of resources to you today to start planning your move.
If you aren’t familiar with what Backloading is, see the example below. If you are, you will know it offers significant savings, however savings aren’t everything. Many Victorians prefer the certainty and dedicated service of a standalone truck or container for their move.
A dedicated truck or container is what you have come to expect from a local move where your good are taken directly from your uplift address (origin) to your delivery address (destination). You embark on your journey knowing that you need not work around any of time constraints that Backloading can often bring into your move, or worry that your possessions are being handled with less care and attention.
Its important that you understand that this worry isn’t entirely founded though. Backloading is ahead of its time in quality and practicality.
What is Backloading and How Will it Help Your Move to or From Victoria
Backloading is as it sounds in reverse, a load back, or at least this is where it began.
Consider AirBNB or UberX. The sharing economy is now booming, but moving companies and Australian Interstate Removalists have being doing it for decades.
This example below will open this up for you to understand it better.
The Smith Family from Ballarat moving to > Sunshine Coast, Queensland
Karen of Melbourne moving to > Byron Bay
The Patel family of Geelong moving to > Mackay QLD
Martin and his new wife from Albury, Wodonga moving to > Brisbane
All of these people can share the space in this huge truck by plugging into our moving network and sharing it at the approximate same time. This truck will uplift in reverse order, safely loading the Patel family from Geelong on the front of the truck first. Their possessions travel the longest distance to Mackay, and are delivered last. No double handling. This goes on, in order of delivery distance.
Short term storage can also be offered in this example for any of these customers. This total journey from start to finish without any specific requirements from any customer, will only take a few days to a week.
You can see that this particular truck will use a certain amount of fuel and require a certain amount of professional furniture removalists to complete all jobs safely and effectively. By putting all of these customers together, they all share in those costs and savings.
