Cost of Removalist Darwin to Adelaide

The cost of hiring a removalist is going to be one of the first questions you ask, and whilst the answer is not really that straightforward, we’d like to help you at least understand how you can manage those costs, and minimise them where possible.

Here’s a breakdown of the key factors that will influence the price of your move:

  • Move Volume – we estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). A small studio apartment might be 5cbm, and a large family home is typically over 35cbm.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Adelaide is about 3,030 km. We use rail on some lanes, and roads where that is not possible. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Pricing across the country is always higher during peak season in the summer by at least 10%. Removalists across Australia are in high demand in the summer – they work long hours, weekends, and its tough work – and that inevitably means average costs are higher at that time of the year. For Darwin, that peak is even more pronounced.

  • Access – If our moving trucks can’t park right by your property, then our removalists spend more time walking to the truck. That’s ok, but it means your move takes longer, and in some cases, we need to keep a staff member as security on the truck.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Our removalists are strong, and have all the right gear to move your heavy items, but on some items they require an extra man (or more) to help them move it.
  • Early Booking – If you book early, you’ll almost always get better pricing than if you book late. If you’re moving in summer, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. In the winter, one month is typically ok.

As an indication of cost, a 25-30cbm move from Darwin to Adelaide is likely to be around $120-$130 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

Before the British settlement, the city centre was called Tandanyangga which means “place of the red Kangaroo” and was originally inhabited by the indigenous Kaurna people.
