Cost of Removalist Darwin to Ipswich

If you’re not familiar with moving, then most likely, 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 for you where possible.

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

  • Move Volume – we estimate this in terms of cubic metres (cbm). A small studio apartment might be around 5cbm, and a large family home is likely going to be at least 35cbm.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Ipswich is about 3,400 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, and you’ll see it increase by at least 10%. Removalists across Australia are in high demand in the summer – they work long hours, weekends, and it’s tough work – and that inevitably means average costs are higher at that time of the year. For any moves involving Darwin, that peak can be even more pronounced.

  • Access – If our moving trucks can’t park near the entrance to your home, then our removalists spend more time walking to the truck. We can do that, but it means your move takes longer, and depending on where you live, we need to keep a staff member as security on the truck for you.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Yes, our removalists are strong! We have all the right gear to move your heavy items, but on some items, we will require an extra man (or more) to help move it. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know.
  • Early Booking – If you book early, you’ll almost always get better pricing than if you book late. If you’re moving in the summertime, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. In the winter, one month is typically ok.

As an indication of cost, a 15-20cbm move from Darwin to Ipswich is likely to be around $160-$170 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Ipswich Removals?


Whether you’ve been living in Darwin all your life or only a couple of years, it’s hard to miss the city’s incredible ecosystem and Australian wildlife. Darwin also hosts several events year-round including the World Solar Challenge, a solar-powered car race that covers 3,021 km attracting contenders from different parts of the world who come in to test their innovative cars. If you’re a local who loves shopping, you must have been excited to visit the Sunset Markets at Mindil Beach every Tuesday and Sunday from May to October. Locals and visitors can visit the markets and enjoy the performances, try food from various stalls, and shop for souvenirs and products for your day-to-day routine. If you’re ready to leave this all behind and head to Ipswich, let’s get to know a few important things about your new home.


Ipswich is an urban region located in South East Queensland and is the oldest provincial city in the state. Established in 1827 as a mining settlement, the city soon became a major mining centre and a strong manufacturing region — creating a lot of job opportunities for both locals and migrants. Now, Ipswich is a multicultural city with residents coming from more than 160 countries, speaking 152 languages. Before European settlement, the members of the Jagera, Yuggera, and Ugarapul Aboriginal language groups occupied the Ipswich district. The city enjoys a subtropical climate, so once you’re settled in, take some time to walk around to check out the many heritage-listed sites, historical buildings, modern shopping centres, and well-equipped libraries including Queens Park, Ipswich Little Theatre and The Burley Griffin Incinerator.
