Cost of Removalist Darwin to Tweed Heads

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 at least 35cbm.
  • Distance between origin and destination – in this case, the distance from Darwin to Tweed Heads is about 3,500 km. We use rail by preference on some lanes, and roads where that is not possible. In general however, the longer that distance, the higher the cost your move is likely to be.
  • Seasonality – Pricing across the country is always higher during peak season in the summer, with prices increasing by 10% or more. Removalists across Australia are in high demand in the summer, and that inevitably means labour 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 end up spending more time transporting your items to the truck and back. That’s ok, but it means your move takes longer, and in many cases, we need to keep a staff member as security on the truck.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Our removalists are well trained 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 it.
  • Early Booking – Booking early almost always gets 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 10-20cbm move from Darwin to Tweed Heads is likely to be around $270-$280 per cbm. Pricing per cbm goes down quickly as volume increases.

What to expect with Darwin to Tweed Heads Removals?


Whilst living in Darwin, you may have noticed that despite being isolated from big cities, the Northern Territories’ capital is one of the most rapidly growing cities in Australia which creates a big demand for skilled workers. Due to the shortage of workers, specialist employees often earn a bit more compared to other cities. However, high paying employment opportunities available in the city primarily require skilled workers or other specific qualifications and experience that not everyone has. Hence, some residents often look for opportunities elsewhere in order to provide for their and their family’s needs. If you’re relocating to seek better employment options or a change in scenery, here are some of the interesting things you might want to know about the Tweed Heads if you’re headed that way.

Tweed Heads

Tweed Heads is the northernmost coastal town in New South Wales, and the location of Porpoise Spit, a fictional town in the comedy-drama Muriel’s Wedding, which was released in 1994 . Due to its proximity to the Queensland border, Tweed Heads is often referred to as the town where people can change time zones by crossing the street. This is because NSW observes daylight saving whilst Queensland does not. If you’re wondering about who it was named after, the town was named Tweed Heads because it is the entrance to the Tweed River. Once you’re done unpacking and ready to explore, you can start getting to know your new home by visiting some of its most popular destinations including Mount Warning (Wollumbin), Border Ranges, Springbrook, Nightcap, and Lamington National Park.
