Cost of Removalist Sunshine 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. It takes about 10 boxes to make one cbm. A larger family home is typically going to be over 35cbm.
  • Distance between houses – in this case, the distance from Sunshine Coast to Ipswich is about 145 km, and we’ll transport your goods from Sunshine Coast to Ipswich on road. In general, the longer that distance, the higher the cost
  • 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 annual 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 items as far as needed, but of course, that takes longer if they’re far from the truck, 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. Just let us know if you have something like that, and we’ll staff it accordingly.
  • Early Booking – If you’re moving in summer, book at least two months ahead to avoid disappointment. 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.

To give you an idea of cost, 25-30 cbm move from Sunshine Coast to Ipswich is likely to be around $80-$90 per cbm. For moves larger than that, pricing per cbm goes down quickly in relation to the volume going up.

What to expect with Sunshine Coast to Ipswich Removals?

Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast – If you’re currently in Sunshine Coast, you’ve probably heard that Sunshine Coast was once home to runaway convicts due to its close proximity to Brisbane (then known as Moreton Bay). Years later, Sunshine Coast has become a centre for tourism, welcoming more than 3.2 million visitors every year to see some of its most famous attractions including The Big Pineapple, Australia Zoo, Aussie World, Ettamogah Pub, and many others. It is also lined with unbroken beaches – from Sunshine Beach near Noosa to Coolum Beach; the coast from Point Arkwright to Mudjimba; the Maroochydore–Mooloolaba stretch; and from Buddina past the Caloundra CBD to Pelican Waters. The locality also has the largest number of meditation, organic, and yoga stores in Australia. If you’re set on leaving all this behind, let’s try to learn about the place you’re moving to.


Prior to European settlement, the district of Ipswich was occupied by members of the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul Aboriginal language groups and was traditionally known in the Yagara language as Tulmur. If you love learning about history and appreciating different cultures, you’ll find it easy to love Ipswich and its many historic sites including the Ipswich Little Theatre and the Burley Griffin Incinerator, Old Ipswich Courthouse, the Ginn Cottage and more. Another interesting fact, the famous Aussie Lamington cake was said to have been first baked and presented to the Governor at the opening of the Ipswich Technical College in June 1900. Once you’ve settled in, you can start learning about its history and start attending some of the annual events like the Goodna Jacaranda Festival where you can enjoy different treats from market stalls, enjoy live performances, and try exciting rides and different food items.

Your move from Sunshine Coast to Ipswich

Depending on the size of your home and the services you have requested for your removal plan, the uplift may take an hour or so before our trucks drive to your new address to deliver your belongings. If your new residence can’t accommodate all your belongings or you’re planning on moving back to Sunshine Coast, consider leaving your items for storage in Sunshine Coast for safekeeping and take them back when you’re ready.
