Cost of Removalist Darwin to Hervey Bay

The cost of hiring a removalist is likely 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 or more, and a large family home is typically at least 35cbm.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Hervey Bay is about 3,300 km. We use transport goods on 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%, and Darwin experiences a peak that is often a bit higher than that. 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.

    • 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 5-10cbm move from Darwin to Hervey Bay is likely to be around $380-$385 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Hervey Bay Removals?


When you first moved to Darwin or during your stay, you may have been one of the curious folks who wanted to learn about the history and culture of the city you’re living in. Even if you’re not a fan of history, you’ve probably picked up a thing or two from classes, friends or maybe even guided tours around the city. Darwin is one of the cities that have risen and flourished after it was devastated by both man-made and natural disasters. During WWII, the city served as a major military base for the Allied troops in the Pacific and was bombed on 19 February 1942 by the same fleet that bombed Pearl Harbour. More than 30 years after that, several parts of Darwin were once again left in ruins after Cyclone Tracy struck the city in December 1974. After some reconstruction and recovery efforts, Darwin has become one of Australia’s fastest-growing cities — leading to increased demand for skilled workers. However, if you’ve found your next opportunity in Hervey Bay, then read on.

Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay is a small city situated on the coast of the Fraser Coast Region in Queensland. For several years, sugar cane was the city’s primary industry. It was also promoted as the Caravan Capital of Australia sometime between 1960-70 because the city has approximately 23 caravan parks. One of the city’s most popular beaches is the Urangan beach which attracts visitors from all over Australia. Whilst many people who travel to the area often visit to see the Urangan Pier which was originally built in 1917, intended to export sugar, timber, and coal. Hervey Bay is also known as the whale watching capital of Australia. When you’re not busy working or doing some activities with your family and friends, consider taking the opportunity to witness humpback whales migrating along the coast between April and October.
