MOVING JOB INFORMATION
Confirming the Final Removal Cost
After submitting the form with your data from this free moving calculator, one of our friendly team members will be in touch with you to discuss the details of your moving project. They will explain the various items and their impact on the moving price. After going through the details, our team will be able to send you a final quote, containing the final removal price.
1. Distance from our depot
We have four depots that we use when servicing our Melbourne customers. This means that we are your local removalist for many Melbourne locations which minimises the surcharge for time to travel to your pick up location. Estimate the distance in km from the depot nearest to you.
2. Number of bedrooms
Select the number of bedrooms you are moving. This gives us an indication of the number of items you might have. We'll discuss some more details with you if you decide to get a final removalist quote later on.
3. Pick up access
The access is an important factor in the removals costs calculator as the access influences how easy (or difficult) it will be to get the furniture out of your apartment or house to load it onto the moving truck.
4. Distance from our depot
Again, our movers will need to travel back to our depot from the moving job. To calculate this distance, use the same depot you used when calculating the distance for the pick up location as the truck will go back to the same depot.
Although we do not specialise in piano removals, depending on the situation (its location, number of men available etc.), we might be able to take the piano with us and load in onto the moving truck. We'll confirm with you once we get more details about the moving job.
B. Pool table
Pool table is a bulky item but we're happy to help you move it to your new home.
C. Balcony lift
Sometimes, we may need to use a balcony lift to get bulky items from or to your new Melbourne home. If you think that this might be your case, turn it on in our removal costs calculator to get a more precise estimate of your moving cost.
The importance of local removalists
You can see how important it is to find a local removalist for your Melbourne moving job. Our moving cost calculator will show you the extra cost that is added to your moving quote with the increasing distance from the removalist's depot. Thanks to us having 4 depots in Melbourne, we are your local removalist for Melbourne metro and Bayside suburbs, optimising your moving costs.Learn why call local removalists first
Access and stairs
Although you cannot change the number of stairs to any of your properties, you can do a few things related to access that can help you optimise your removal costs. For example, enabling us to park the truck as close to your entrance as possible. With apartment buildings, this might involve creating some space on the street and/or asking neighbours to move their cars temporarily.To moving cost calculator
Reducing the number of belongings
We indicate the number of your belongings based on the number of bedrooms you have. However, there can be many items to be moved from a 2bdr apartment and less from a 3 bdr apartment, depending on your circumstances. Your final moving cost will depend on the number of items you have as we need time to move them out of your old house and into your new home.Reduce the number of belongings
Understand the price to move extra items
There are a few items that are bulky or need extra attention. Our removal costs calculator will show you how taking them with you influences your final removal bill. See how adding piano or pool table changes the moving costs estimate. See how us using the balcony lift adjusts the removal costs and what does it do to the moving cost estimate if another removalist attends on your moving day.Melbourne moving costs calculator
