Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Airlie Beach

Finding a moving company that offers the quality of moving service you need, at the time you need it, at the price that fits in your budget can be challenging. We’ve outlined a few key factors that will impact the price of your move in order to help you understand how you can potentially reduce your moving costs.

  • Move Size – any removalist will estimate this in cubic metres (cbm). Your fridge is about one cubic metre, a queen sized bed is around 1.7cbm, 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 Ipswich to Airlie Beach is about 1130 km. Your goods will be transported on our truck fleet from Ipswich to Airlie Beach. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Australians love to move in the summer. Most home sales, job moves, and business moves are concentrated between November and February. Moving companies across the country find themselves strained as a result of this spike in demand, which ultimately leads to price increases of 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 you have may require an extra bit of help. Stone garden ornaments, pool tables, pianos, all might require an extra man to help with the lift. If you’re taking heavy and bulky items during the move, let us know in advance and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – If you’re moving in summer, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. Booking a month in advance is usually sufficient during the winter months. When you book early, you are more likely to get a better deal from any quality moving company.

To give you an idea of cost, a 10-15 cbm move from Ipswich to Airlie Beach is likely to be around $125-$135 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.

What to expect with Ipswich to Airlie Beach Removals?


If you’re currently in Ipswich, you already know that the city is traditionally known in the Yagara language as Tulmur. The Jagera-related people in the Chepara family group inhabited the territories from Moreton Bay to Toowoomba in the west, nearly to Nanango in the northwest, including Brisbane and Ipswich. The city is also home to Australia’s largest operational Air Force Base, RAAF Amberley, which started operating in 1940 as a RAAF Base. The first coal mine in Queensland opened in Ipswich in 1843 by John Williams at Redbank. Aside from these, there are several other locations in Ipswich that you can visit to keep you occupied during your free time. However, if you feel that it’s really time to move on to a new city, it’s best to do some research so you know what to expect before moving on… lets have a look at Airlie Beach below!

Airlie Beach

Airlie Beach is a coastal locality situated in the heart of the Whitsundays Region. The locality is one of the many gateways to the Great Barrier Reef. Whilst the origin of its name is not confirmed, it is believed that the town was named after the parish of Airlie in Scotland. Airlie Beach is a popular jump-off point for a range of cruises around the Whitsundays area including day and half-day cruises to Whitehaven Beach and the Great Barrier Reef. Once you’re done unpacking and are comfortable moving around, you may visit nearby attractions such as the Conway National Park and the Cedar Creek Falls where you can take a relaxing walk. There are also other activities that you can enjoy in these attractions depending on what season you’re visiting.

Your move from Ipswich to Airlie Beach

Will see you moving only about 1130km. Due to the distance and travel time required to reach your destination and complete your move, your move to Airlie Beach can hardly be considered a local move. Depending on the size of your home and the services included in your removals plan for a more convenient move, the uplift will occur and an usually be completed within one day, before arranging delivery of your goods to your new address for delivery per the agreed schedule. If your new residence can’t accommodate all your belongings or you’re planning on moving back to Ipswich, consider leaving some items for storage in Ipswich for safekeeping and take them back when you’re ready.
