Cost of Removalist Ipswich to Perth

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 Perth is about 4315 km. Your goods will be transported on rail or truck from Ipswich to Perth. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost, and in this case the distance is one of the longest moves Australians make.
  • 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 – The best time to book is two months in advance if you are moving during the summer. Booking a month in advance is usually sufficient during the winter months. Choosing a quality moving company early is more likely to lead you to a better deal.

To give you an idea of cost, a 15-20 cbm move from Ipswich to Perth is likely to be around $210-$220 per cbm. For larger moves, the price per cbm drops quickly as the volume increases.

What to expect with Ipswich to Perth Removals?


If you’re currently in Ipswich, you may have learned that the district was established as a mining settlement in 1827 and it is the oldest provincial city in Queensland. Ipswich became a major mining centre and a strong manufacturing region, creating a lot of job opportunities for locals and tourists who wanted to relocate.

It is now a multicultural city with residents coming from more than 160 countries, speaking 152 languages. Ipswich is one of the fastest-growing cities in Queensland. Since the city is closely situated to three airports, six major highways, rail, and the Port of Brisbane, there are a variety of opportunities that are open for locals and visitors who are planning on moving to Ipswich. If you found better opportunities elsewhere, it’s best to do some research about your new home.


Perth was dubbed as “the city of lights” after astronaut John Glenn passed over Western Australia when he first orbited the Earth in 1962. He noticed how bright Perth’s street lights lit up its surroundings. Perth is one of the most isolated major cities in the world, second only to Honolulu. It is geographically closer to Bali and Jakarta in Indonesia than to Brisbane, Canberra, and Sydney.

The area where Perth was known as Boorloo to the Noongar people who occupied the southwest corner of Western Australia, living as hunter-gatherers. After unpacking your belongings and preparing the things you need for work and school, take some time to explore some of the most famous attractions including the Perth Mint, Swan Valley, Rottnest Island, Kings Park and Botanic Garden, The Pinnacles, and the historic Fremantle Prison.
