Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Gold Coast

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 Gold Coast is about 94 km. Your belongings (furniture and personal effects) will be transported via truck from Ipswich to Gold Coast. In general, the longer the distance, the higher the cost.
  • Seasonality – Australians prefer moving during the summer. Home sales, job moves, and business moves are mostly concentrated between November and February. Because of the spike in demand, moving companies face a strain on resources, which in turn leads to prices spiking typically by at least 10% during the summer months.

  • Access – Our removalists can lift or trolley your belongings as far as necessary, but of course, that takes longer, so the most convenient option is to park as close to your home as possible.
  • Heavy and Bulky Items – There are times when preparing and moving bulky/heavy items may require an extra bit of help. Stone garden ornaments, pool tables, pianos, may all might require an extra man to help with the lift. Please let us know in advance if you are taking heavy or bulky items during the move, so we can staff your uplift accordingly and make sure they bring the proper equipment to move your belongings safely.
  • 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. It is more likely that any quality removalist will give you a better price if you book as early as possible.

To give you an idea of cost, a 20-25 cbm move from Ipswich to Gold Coast is likely to be around $80-$90 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.

What to expect with Ipswich to Gold Coast Removals?

With two universities and an extensive list of private and state government schools to choose from, Education plays an important role in the local economy. Ipswich is an exciting place to live and work in since there are a good number of employment opportunities, school choices, and tourist destinations to visit.

Even if there are plenty of opportunities and attractions you can explore, you may have found a better one in the city you’re moving into. Let’s get to know the city you will soon call home…

Gold Coast

Gold Coast is the 6th largest city in Australia and is known for having the highest concentration of theme parks in the southern hemisphere. Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World, Dream World, Wet n’ Wild, and many wildlife parks including Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary are located on Gold Coast. Village Roadshow studios houses the largest soundstage in the Southern Hemisphere with a footprint in excess of 47,000 square feet.

Interestingly, there are more Hollywood blockbusters filmed in the Gold Coast than anywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere. This includes Muriel’s Wedding, Aquaman, Pacific Rim, Thor: Ragnarok, San Andreas, and many more.

With around 57 kilometres of pristine coastline, it’s no surprise that Gold Coast has the largest professional lifeguard service. Once you’ve settled in, start exploring the beaches and the city and see if you can find and take pictures of some of the nearby locations used in your favourite movies.

Your move from Ipswich to Gold Coast

Will see you moving less than 100km or so. Since this is almost considered a local move, 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. If you’re not staying in Ipswich for a long time and you plan on returning to Ipswich after a few months or years, putting your belongings in storage with Whybirds is an option you can consider instead of taking everything with you in your new home.

Whether you are moving to Gold Coast for a change of scenery, for better work opportunities (or to be closer to the office), for schooling alternatives or just for a change of scenery, you can trust the Whybirds team to get your move done efficiently.
