Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Byron Bay

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 Byron Bay is about 180 km. Your goods will be transported on one of our purpose built trucks from Ipswich to Byron Bay. 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.

Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a beautiful town that became a popular watering hole for backpackers and holidaymakers in New South Wales. The town was once known as “Cavanbah” (meaning “meeting place”) by the Bundjalung people who are believed to have inhabited the area for thousands of years. As Captain James Cook sailed up to the east coast of Australia in 1770, he named Cape Byron after Vice-Admiral John Byron (nicknamed Foul Weather Jack), who was the grandfather of Lord Byron the famous English poet in the 19th century. When you’re done unpacking and organising your belongings, take some time to explore and visit nearby attractions including Wategos Beach, Cosy Corner/Tallow Beach, Suffolk Park, Arakwal National Park, and more. The most famous attraction in the area is Byron Bay Lighthouse which was built between 1899 and 1901.
