Interstate Moving Options: 

What options do you have when moving to Adelaide?  The good news for anyone looking to interstate removalists is that you have a few really affordable options. 

Self Move: Do It Yourself

Hiring your own moving truck is one option you have. This is one of the most popular choices for local moves but interstate moving can be a bit trickier. 

Self Move means that you hire your own truck or UHaul and drive it yourself. You will need to pay insurance and the hire fee and pack the truck yourself. You will also be in charge of the fuel costs and protective items for your belongings. 

You can purchase a truck or a trailer which can be towed by your own vehicle.

The good thing about this option is you can make a road trip out of it and that your belongings remain with you along the way. This is also ideal if you have pets, if you prefer not to fly and if you are wanting to take in the sights along the way. 

Using Professional Adelaide Interstate Removalists

A popular option for interstate moving is to hire interstate removalists. Furniture movers will do the heavy lifting for you and will transport your items to your new location. They will also unload your furniture and other items so you don’t have to worry about any of that.

If you are after the easiest and less stressful way to move, this is by far your best option.

In general, if you opt for an interstate removalist, you only have to worry about a few things. You will need to organise the date of your move and you will need to provide an accurate idea of how much stuff you need moving. Don’t worry if you don’t know this for sure - Best Rated Transport can help you with all of this! 

You will also need to notify your Adelaide interstate removalist about your date of drop off and location, as well as a few details about your house such as if it’s an apartment, has stairs or an elevator or if it’s a long walk to your drop off point. 

You will also need to be in charge of packing your items into boxes, but, as for the furniture and larger items, your interstate removalists can handle this for you. Which means no broken backs or sore arms! 

There are several interstate removalists out there which is why it’s so important to compare interstate removalists quotes before deciding on a mover. It’s also important to check reviews and accreditation to ensure the interstate movers are reliable. 

Your Best Rate with Backloading 

Another option you have when it comes to budget interstate moving is to consider backloading. Backloading is when you book available truck space on a large interstate removalist truck that already has a primary load. You may not need to book the entire truck for your move and thus, with backloading, you only pay for the space that you need. 

This is one of our specialities at Best Rated Transport and it’s our recommendation for those who do have some flexibility when it comes to their moving dates. 

Container Hire or Budget Moves

For the best move on a budget, we recommend container transport. Container transport is another smart option when it comes to interstate moving. There are two main ways you can do this. If you have your own container, you can pay to have a container transport company move your container from your house to your new location. This is called “transit only”. You will need to pack the container yourself and unload it at your new home, but you don’t have to worry about getting the container onto a truck or finding a way to move it. 

If you don’t have a container, you can hire one which involves the same as above, but you will be given a container for 28 days. You then load it up and arrange for pick up and delivery. You can then unload it at your new location before the container is picked up. 

While container transport isn't always cheaper than using a professional removalist, it is with some long distance moves. It all depends on where you are moving to and where you are coming from. You may find that hiring a container and getting it loaded and shipped to your new home is actually your cheapest option, especially when moving long distance. 

Like hiring professional furniture removalists, you don't have to worry about making the drive yourself and containers can carry furniture as well as vehicles (be sure to request this). This is definitely a plus for anyone looking to bypass the long distance drive and just fly to their new home.

Transport You Can Trust

"What a fantastic company to deal with, right from my initial call to Katie who organised everything and was such a lovely person, to Ross the delivery driver who was so friendly and helpful he kept us informed every step of the way. Very pleased and furniture arrived earlier than anticipated. The cost was very good as well. I got two other quotes that were twice the price that it ended up being. Highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to move."

Glen Kitto

"Absolutely incredible service and communication I highly recommend. Will definitely use this service again! Absolutely go above and beyond , my second time using and I’ll only ever recommend and use Best Rated Transport again!"

Belle Joski

"You just don't get service like this anymore. Super friendly, super professional, nothing was too much trouble. Katie went above and beyond to ensure the transport of our freight from Rockhampton Qld to Perth WA was nothing but a pleasant experience. We could not recommend Katie, Chris and crew highly enough. A big thank you to all involved."
