Cost of Removalist Darwin to Toowoomba

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 or so, and a large family home is typically at least 35cbm.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Toowoomba is about 3,300 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%, and that can be even more pronounced with any move that involves Darwin. 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.

  • Access – If our moving trucks can’t park right by your property, then our team spends more time walking back and forth 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 ensure your belongings are safe and sound.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Removalists are strong, but on some items they require an extra man (or more) to help them move things. If there are heavy items in your move let us know, and we’ll have the right gear ready to move whatever you have.
  • Early Booking – If you book early, you’re going to 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 35-40cbm move from Darwin to Toowoomba is likely to be around $250-$300 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Toowoomba Removals?


If you’ve been in Darwin for a long time, you’ve surely had some time to explore its incredible ecosystem and unique Australian wildlife. Aside from its calming sea views and lush greenery, the city is home to a wealth of indigenous culture – featuring also prominently in local Aboriginal art galleries. There are also several opportunities to learn about the local Larrakia people’s Dreamtime stories by taking a tour led by an indigenous guide. The Larrakia people are the traditional landowners that lived in the greater Darwin region well before European settlement. They had trading routes with South and Western Australia as well as South-East Asia. If you’ve explored that, and your mind is set about moving on, here’s what you can expect from the city you’re moving to.


Toowoomba hosts the annual Carnival of Flowers, the longest-running event of its kind. Those who reside in or visit the town during spring are welcomed by a vibrant array of colourful flowers on the streets. The city is also home to Australia’s oldest pub, The Farmers Arms Pub which is located just beyond the Highfields. It has been operating since 1863. Once you’ve settled in, you might consider dropping by to try some good pub food and icy cold beverages. Other popular attractions in Toowoomba include Tabletop Mountain, The Palms National Park, Met Galleries, Laurel Bank Park, and Queen’s Park Botanic Gardens.
