Interstate removalists can assist you with every aspect of your big move. Here's what you need to know about finding and booking top rated interstate removalists.

When it comes to moving interstate, where do you even begin? Perhaps you've got a house lined up or perhaps you're moving interstate due to a job opportunity. But how do you get your contents from your old place to your new place across the state line? 

The answer? Interstate removalists! 

Interstate removalists are professional furniture removals that specialise in transporting furniture and other items across the state borders. Some of the most popular interstate routes including from Victoria to Queensland, from Sydney to Victoria and from South Australia to Queensland. However, you may find yourself moving to or from the Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia which are also pretty big drives! 

Interstate removalists are experienced in these specific types of moves but it can still be really daunting and stressful to hire a company you may not have used or even heard of before and rely on them to move $50,000 worth of prized possessions.

What if something goes wrong? What if they accidentelly damage your goods or somehow drop off your items at the wrong location? 

This is where Best Rated Transport comes in. We only work with top rated interstate removalists that come with our green tick of approval. Every top rated interstate removalist in our network have been carefully vetted and come with excellent track records and customer satisfaction ratings.

How do I get started? 

When it comes to booking top rated interstate removalists, you have several choices. You can contact moving companies and ask for a quote or wait until they get back to you. You can also use a comparison platform which will do the research for you.

Comparison platforms allow you to compare interstate removalists quotes without having to contact each specific company and give your details out numerous times. It's the ideal option for busy families but it's also the more affordable option because you will receive several quotes at once. Interstate removalists are all competing for your business so you will receive the best rate without having to do any of the work. 

We always recommend that when you know you're moving in the future, to request quotes from interstate removalists as one of your first jobs, usually six weeks in advance. This gives yourself enough time to ensure the best rate and book your space on a truck, either as a full load, a partial load or a backload. 

Is there anything else I need to organise for my move? 

This depends on if which interstate removalists you go with. Some interstate removalists only offer pick-up and drop-off so you might be looking at getting insurance and unloading and loading the contents yourself, which can be extra stressful. 

Best Rated Transport handles all of this for you. Every move comes with not only transportation interstate, but also insurance and up to three trained movers to load and unload your items. You also don't need to worry about protective coverings for your contents or paying for the fuel to get there. 

What you will need to do, however, is provide some details about your move, including estimated cubic metreage of your items, pick up and drop off location and the type of house (two-story, apartment, steep driveway, etc). 

How do I know my cubic meterage?

Often a professional will need to assist you with this. Best Rated Transport’s instant quote system can automatically calculate your cubic meterage based on your inventory and house size. This is one of the easiest ways to ensure you’ve put in an accurate amount.

What happens if I have more cubic meterage than I thought?

It may impact your quote and, it could end up being an issue come moving day if there‘s not enough space for your items. Take inventory of everything you plan to move, including items in your garage and shed and, if in doubt, contact Best Rated Transport. One of the services we provide for our interstate removalists customers is a personal moving manager who can assist you with every element of your move, incuding taking inventory. 

When should I start packing up my things?

Our recommendation is to start packing six to four weeks before you move. Start with the items you don’t need, such as winter clothes if moving in summer, spare linen, kitchen items you don’t use daily. Be sure to also declutter as you go.

Where is the best place to buy boxes?

We suggest Bunnings for moving boxes. Their boxes start at $2.35 and they come in several shapes and sizes. If you can't get Bunnings moving boxes, try Office Works moving boxes.
