Cost of Removalist Darwin to Gold Coast

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 help you 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 Gold Coast is about 3,500 km. We use rail where it’s possible, 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 peak season – they work long hours and weekends, and it’s tough work. This inevitably means average costs are higher in peak season. For Darwin, that peak is even more pronounced.

  • Access – If our moving trucks can’t park within a short walk from your front door, 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 to look after your belongings.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Our removalists are experienced and 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 the bigger ones.
  • 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 sufficient.

As an indication of cost, a 10 – 15cbm move from Darwin to Gold Coast is likely to be around $295-$300 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Gold Coast Removals?


If you’ve lived in Darwin or anywhere in the Top End, you’ve surely felt somewhat isolated from other Australian cities. Darwin is so far from other state capitals and is closer to several countries and cities in South East Asia. In fact, due to its proximity, the Port of Darwin serves as the main outlet for Australia’s live cattle export trade into SouthEast Asia. Whilst Darwin is a unique place with bountiful places to visit, has a culturally rich indigenous heritage to learn from, and friendly and relaxed communities, some of its residents may still choose to leave to explore new places. If you’re moving to Gold Coast for a change in scenery or an opportunity you can’t pass up, we hope the information below will help you with the journey.

Gold Coast

Gold Coast is a coastal city and a major tourist destination in Queensland. Thanks to its sunny, subtropical climate, the city has become known for its high concentration of theme parks, lush rainforests, and world-class surfing beaches. Gold Coast has 57 kilometres of pristine coastline, 100,000 hectares of World Heritage-listed rainforest, and 260 kilometres of navigable waterways. Originally, Gold Coast was called the “South Coast” as it is located south of Brisbane. The inflated cost of goods and real estate properties led to the name “Gold Coast” which the locals considered as derogatory. However, as the tourism industry grew in the town, local businesses began to adopt the name and the town was renamed officially to Gold Coast.

Your move from Darwin to Gold Coast

Gold Coast is around 3500km away from Darwin. Our team of professional Darwin removalists will usually complete the uplift portion of your move in one day, depending on the size of the move, then ship your goods to Gold Coast. Our fleet of road trains brave the outback between Darwin and Gold Coast several times a week, moving precious family memories, usually taking several days to reach their destination. If you see one of our road trains whilst you’re on the road, give our long-haul drivers a honk of the horn and a friendly wave. Travelling through Australia’s long roads can get lonely at times and simple gestures such as a wave can help take the edge off!

Whether you’re moving from Darwin to Gold Coast for a career opportunity or a change in scenery, you can count on our reliable removalists to provide you with a hassle-free move. Please feel free to contact our team once you are ready to get a quote and discuss the details of your move with one of our moving consultants or if you need moving boxes Darwin or furniture removalists Darwin.
