Cost of Removalist Gold Coast to Ipswich

Selecting a moving company that can provide you the quality of moving service you need, at the time you need it, at the price point that works for you can be difficult. To help you understand how you can potentially reduce your moving costs, we’ve listed a few key factors that will influence the price of your move.

  • Move Size – any removalist will estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). Your fridge is about one cubic metre, and a small one bedroom apartment holds about 10cbm of items. A larger family home is typically going to be over 35cbm.
  • Distance between houses – in this case, the distance from Gold Coast to Ipswich is about 100 km. To improve efficiency for our customers, we use rail on some lanes, roads where that is not possible, and often a combination of both. Generally, the longer the distance, the more expensive it is.
  • Seasonality – Australians love to move in the summer. School holidays, home sales, job relocations, and business moves all tend to be concentrated at one time of the year, between November to February. That spike in demand constrains the resources of moving companies around the country, and ultimately means prices increase by at least 10% during the summer months.

  • Access – Our removalists can lift or trolley your things as far as needed, but of course, that takes longer, so our preference is always to be able to park as close to your home as possible.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – Some items, especially the heavy and bulky ones, may require extra assistance. Stone garden ornaments, pool tables, pianos, all might require an extra man to help with the lift. Just let us know if you are moving such items, and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – Book your move at least two months ahead if you are moving in the summer since this is usually the time when almost all removalists are booked out. In the winter, one month is typically ok. The earlier you book the more likely you are to get a better price from any quality removalist.

What to expect with Gold Coast to Ipswich Removals?

Gold Coast

If you’re currently in Gold Coast, you may have heard that Gold Coast was once known as “South Coast” or perhaps you were even there when the name was changed in 1958. At first, the city was called “Gold Coast” due to the inflated cost of goods and real estate properties in the area and the locals found the name to be derogatory. This changed as the tourism industry grew in the town, so local businesses began to adopt the new name until the town was later renamed as “the Town of Gold Coast.” The city is known for having the largest concentration of theme parks in the southern hemisphere. In 2016, Gold Coast was featured in the QS Best Students Cities Report dubbed as the best beach-side city in the world.


Traditionally known in the Yagara language as Tulmur, Ipswich has been home to Aboriginal people for thousands of years prior to European settlement. Established as a limestone mining settlement, the town was initially called “The Limestone Hills” which was later shortened to “Limestone”. However, the town was renamed after the town of Ipswich in England in 1843. When you move to Ipswich, you can look forward to different events and festivals hosted by the city annually. This includes the Ipswich Show, Goodna Jacaranda Festival, Ipswich Festival and more. If you are fond of learning about culture and history, you’d definitely love Ipswich for its rich culture as it is Queensland’s oldest provincial city. Ipswich is also known for its natural, architectural, and cultural heritage. Once you’re done unpacking and you’re ready to explore, you can visit the city and explore one of its more than 6000 heritage-listed sites and popular attractions.

Your move from Gold Coast to Ipswich

will see you moving around 100km. Since this is almost considered a local move (albeit a relatively long one), it is one of the moves that our professional removalists are very familiar with. Depending on the size of your home and the services you have requested for your removal plan, the uplift may take anywhere from an hour or so, up to a whole day before our trucks drive to your new address to deliver your belongings (on the same day for smaller moves, or the next day for others). If you’re not staying in Ipswich for a long time and you plan on returning to Gold Coast after some time, putting your belongings in storage Gold Coast or Ipswich is an option you can consider instead of taking everything with you in your new home.
