We have been in this industry for 20 years, providing our specialist interstate removal service every day.
With our system we provide great prices for the budget conscious with the convenience of a full service removal.
How much notice does a removalist need
As a general rule if you are looking to book a quality interstate removalist or backload company it is best to provide at least a week notice minimum.
The more notice you can provide your furniture removal company then better.
More notice means your backloading removal team will be able to better plan for your needs.
Short notice interstate relocations can be done but with more notice comes a higher quality service for your moving requirements.

Our aim is to make your life easier in booking and arranging any size interstate removals in Australia.
We are constantly looking at ways in which we can make thing run smoothly for customers and if you have any questions we are always here to help.
No need to concern yourself with organising your dates around a furniture removalist, we can provide you with a service on the day of your choosing.
Why not give us a try?
Cheap Backloading Interstate
We offer backloads to and from most areas of Australia, some are done almost daily, some are a weekly service. Larger towns and cities are handled most days, there is a regular service to and from Darwin, with pickups in Brisbane and Melbourne on any day. The return trips from Darwin do need a little flexibility, there is a truck in Darwin every week with space for a backload, however, we often need to call the day prior to arrange to pick up, as until truck has delivered all customers he will not be ready to collect and backloading services that are required
This same truck then runs through Katherine and Mount Isa, and central Queensland before hitting Brisbane, so will be available for anyone needing a backload from any of these places to Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, and also from Brisbane another truck is running to North Qld, taking in Townsville, Mackay, and Cairns
Backloading Australia wide on pretty much a daily basis too. We have a regular service to and from anywhere in Western Australia. So if you are moving to Perth, Mandurah, Geraldton, Broom, Tom Price, Albany, Denmark, or Busselton we have you covered there also. This is a removals container service back loads are run between a lot of these towns, plus then interstate backloading over to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane. Trucks will then often distribute to more remote areas of the country.
Then we have regular trucks running between Melbourne Sydney and Brisbane that are again on the lookout for a backload. These set runs are normally a very quick turnaround, so be sure to ask what day is best to load out of Melbourne if you want a quick delivery to Brisbane, Gold Coast or Northern NSW.The same applies in reverse, if you need a quick run to Melbourne from Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Tweed Heads, Coffs Harbour or Ballina then grab your quote and ask for the best day to load
Alongside this service there is a daily collection in Melbourne and Brisbane that may wait for a truck to completely load prior to heading North or South, so if there is no rush to get the furniture delivered, but you must have everything collected on a set day, then have no fear we can help you there also.
Where in New South Wales do you provide your removalist services?
We provide our backloading and furniture removal services throughout Australia, however we're often asked if we go to a specific area, such as Tamworth, Dubbo, Newcastle, Wollongong, Albury, Wagga Wagga, Port Macquarie, Orange, Lismore, Bathurst, Coffs Harbour, or Sydney.
The answer is yes, we go to all those places and anywhere else you can think of.
Our interstate furniture removals and backload service is available to move from anywhere in NSW to anywhere in Australia.
Removals and Storage Quotes
We can assist with storage and re-delivery on most interstate moves.
However these requirements need to be arranged prior to moving day, to enable us to ensure the best facilities are available.
In most cases removalist storage does not allow for access by the public.
This is normally due to Heath and Safety Regulations.
If you feel that you will need access to your furniture whilst in storage then we do recommend Self Storage.
Self Storage Help
Probably the quickest way to find Self Storage is via the Self Storage Associations website
Follow this link for Self Storage
Storage and Re- Delivery Quote
If you would like us to quote or provide storage and redelivery options, please just reply to your moving quotes and request this.
Where in Queensland do you perform your interstate removals?
We service the entire state of Queensland, from the furthest north right down to the QLD-NSW border.
We regularly collect from places like the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Cairns, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Mackay, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Gladstone and Brisbane.
We are collecting and dropping off customers in these areas numerous times a week.
We have a truck in any major QLD town every day, if not every second day.
We are constantly moving people in and out of QLD.
What Backload Services Are Supplied?
We do try to provide the best possible service to all customers, regardless of whether they are moving 1 item or a large household of furniture and effects.
To a certain extent the quality of service provided is limited by the information originally supplied by you.
If you omit to advise us of any "extra" items, or forget to mention that you unit is on the 3rd floor of a high rise unit that is situated on a clearway in an inner city suburb, then problems will occur.
We understand that you may or may not have any idea of how big a removalist truck is, but if in doubt email us with your quote number and your address and we will have a quick look on Google maps and check for you.
On every quote we send out we give you a copy of the inventory that you asked us to quote on, double check this prior to moving day, as its a far better situation if we know in advance of any changes.
What parts of Victoria do you offer your moving services?
What difference is there between a backload and an interstate removal?
Not much to be honest.
They are really just words that we use to describe the different types of ways you can move interstate.
The only real difference between a backloading removal and an interstate removal is that on a backload move your goods are sharing a truck with other customers.
It doesn't impact the high quality of service we provide.
This is generally only the case when you don't completely fill an entire removalist truck as most people don't have a full truck load.
This way each customer pays an affordable price as they are only using the space they need on the interstate removalist truck.
Do you service the ACT and Canberra?
Where in South Australia do you cover?
We had to express our immense gratitude to all of you for the great job in our recent move.
We’d heard some bad stories about some backloading companies so were a bit nervous when we started searching.
Your company obviously cares about the service it supplies to its customers.
How refreshing that is to find these days.
We encountered the usual stress of buying and selling a home and then relocating, but you did what you said you would do and you did it right.
Dealing with your company was like visiting good friends and your removals crew was just amazing.
What a bunch of easy-going guys. I can’t imagine anything you could have done to please us anymore than we were.
You can be sure that we will highly recommend you to others.
neail and crew were great
Thanks for a fantastically easy move guys.
Neil and his crew were great!

It's as easy as 1,2,3,4... You guys are fantastic.
We will make sure all our friends know.
Jim and Kerrie
Thanks for the easy move!
Hi guys, just wanted to say thanks for the really simple and easy process that you guys have going that made my move over to Perth an absolute breeze!
Especially since you added that online credit card system, made paying my removal cost late at night possible! (work nights and it's often hard to wake up to pay!)
Anyway, thanks again.
thanks for my move to Melbourne
Hi guys just wanted to thank you and the boys for an easy move down to Melbourne, I recently had to move interstate for Uni and your company made the whole process simple! Thanks a bunch, Peter

Our interstate move with your company went off without a hitch. The guys turned up on time and our stuff was dropped off a few days later as promised.
Should we ever need a removalist in the future we will not hesitate to use your company again.
Thanks & Regards
I would like to say I had a really great moving experience with Backloading Removals. It’s fast and reliable.
Moreover, as a student with a limited budget they made it affordable and easy.
I really appreciate the great service they provided and I am looking forward to moving with them again in the future.

Professional Efficient Service
Recently our office engaged your business (Backloading Removals) to attend to the relocating of one of our partners to our Brisbane office to Melbourne.
We are writing to express our sincere thanks at the professional and efficient way in which this was done.
We will certainly be recommending your services.”
Regards M. Slate.
State to State No Problem !
Backloading Removals made my moving experience an enjoyable one because they provided the best quality service.
The team are well presented and very good at their job.
No doubt that I will be using their service again next time.
Thanks for removing me!
Just a quick thanks for your service, the guys were helpful giving me a call the afternoon before pickup and drop off so I could organize myself to be there for them and your office staff were always helpful asking all my many questions!
Would recommend for anyone looking for a quality service and a very competitive price.
Thanks for our move from Brisbane to Sydney
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thanks for all the help!
Pete was absolutely amazing! It really felt like personal door to door service from Brisbane to Sydney. Pete picked our furniture up on Saturday right on schedule, and this morning they dropped it off in Sydney exactly on time to when he said he would arrive into Sydney.
Our last interstate move was good as nothing was broken which was the main thing, but we did have a few problems with half being picked up on one truck, then the other half not being able to leave for another 2 days. This move however went more than perfect and Pete was awesome!
Thanks Graham, Nick and I will highly recommend both you and the crew to any friends needing an interstate move!
Just a quick review
Thanks for helping my family move to Adelaide,
Your driver was wonderful and helpful along the way, answering all our silly questions and always answering his phone and letting us know an update on when we'd get our belongings again.
Would definitely recommend him to anyone moving in or out of Adelaide
Happy customer from Perth to Brisbane
you have moved us but with a different number as we ended up taking more and getting a new quote from you!!!!
So far we have been thrilled with your service and each time i have phoned, have been treated with utmost respect and questions answered honestly. the men who came were so good and well organized.
It all went very smoothly and we were so surprised how quickly they loaded our goods, we look forward to greeting our goodies in Queensland.
Great Experience !!
Your system is easy and your staff have high customer service.
My goods were picked up and delivered within the time frame you gave me.
What a great experience.
Gold Coast move
I recently moved to the Gold Coast from Melbourne and everything went well.
Your quote was the cheapest and the service was of a high standard.
When people say to me now that moving is too stressful I tell them to try you guys.
You made it so easy from start to finish.
I'm glad I clicked on your website.
Stress free moving
Just a bit of feedback.
The guys who picked up and delivered my stuff were fantastic.
Thanks for making my move as stress free as possible.
Great price, Great service.
I wanted to say thanks for all your help when I moved last month.
I was on a budget so the price was exactly in my price range.
I will recommend you to all my friends.
Today my furniture was delivered.
The guys were wonderful and quick.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who was involved.
I wish everything was this easy.
Great customer service
The customer service you provide is of a high standard.
I have spoken to many other removalist companies that either take forever to get you a quote or don't even bother.
You have been wonderful and I am going to make sure everyone knows.
You helped us move to Canberra during the silly season and my wife and I wanted to give you all a pat on the back.
With all the stress at that time of year you made it a breeze to arrange.
Hope your Xmas was good.
Moving to Perth
I thought that moving from Brisbane to Perth would be a nightmare.
It's nice to have Employees that don't mind going out of their way to help it run smoothly.
The office staff and removalist were great.
A bit of good feedback.
The online system you have in place for quoting and booking is so simple even I could understand it.
It really couldn't be any easier.
And by the way your staff are very polite and helpful. :))
We recently moved to Melbourne and wanted to say a big thankyou to everyone.
From the office staff to removalists we both appreciate everything you did.
Our stuff arrived safe and well.

Does Backloading Removals service Tasmania?
Dangerous goods will not be moved by your removalist
What cannot be transported by the removalist
- Fuels, fertilisers, acids, ammunition, paints, aerosol cans, corrosives and/or flammable liquids
will NOT be carried by any removalist as it may invalidate their insurance.
- It's probably a good idea to dispose of these items in an environmentally friendly way (i.e.. give them away)
- Under no circumstances should you dispose of these items in waterways and/or drainage systems.
- Not only would you be polluting the environmental surroundings, but it is also against the law.
- Lawn mowers, wiper snipers, etc. should be emptied of any fuels or gases well before transportation.
Again dispose of these sensibly.
- With gas bottles we suggest giving the Gas bottle away as they should not be transported.
- All removalists will refuse the transportation of any and all items they feel fit into the dangerous goods category.
- If you are unsure what is classed at any time just Contact Us for more information.
- IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR LOAD DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY OF THESE ITEMS LISTED ABOVE
Common Backloading Definitions
Paying for space taken on a vehicle in one direction i.e. a return trip, or a load coming back from it's destination.
Furniture removalist assistant, also known as jockey.
Felt blankets used to wrap furniture
Lifeblood of furniture removalist. ( They function a lot better with a plentiful supply)
Please excuse these terms but they refer to items just left lying around the house that probably should have been packed into a carton before the removalist arrived.
Large board that drops down from the rear of the vehicle
Long board that connects to either the tailgate or the side door of a truck to assist in loading.
Get a Backloading Quote
There are several ways that you can obtain a backload quote for your upcoming removal.
Full Unit or household backload?
This forms list most items that are found in a unit or family home, and there is extra space for any items not included in our inventory.
Know the cubic size of your move
If you have know the size of your move in cubic meters then use this form.Cubic meters are not square meters, you will need to enter a single number, our system will not work out 3 x3 x 3, you would need to enter 27, any questions just ask
Sending your own removal inventory
If you have prepared your own list or inventory and would like us to prepare a backload quote for your please use this form
Only want an estimate of moving costs at present?
Simple give us a few details and we can arrange an estimate for you
This differs from job to job, but ideally we would like around a week to provide the best service we can for you.
But in the case of last minute jobs, as long as it is from a metropolitan area to another, we would only need around 48 hours notice.
If you would like to find out what sort of notice we’d need for your move, just give us a call.
In short, YES, YES. YES.
Moving furniture long distances on trucks or via rail means there is always a higher risk of damage to your belongings than if they are sat in your home.
We recommend an All Risk Policy on any long distance move
You can grab free quote from these guys
We can dismantle and reassemble your items for you.
Usually we have the tools on the truck, although it would be good if you could let us know prior to our arrival.
There is normally an extra charge for this, as time will need to be allowed for it, so please contact us in advance of moving day to discuss
There are 2 different types of removal cartons and the sizes are as follows.
Standard removal cartons are approx 650 * 450 * 450
Book cartons are 400 * 300 * 430.
All measurements are in mm
There are a number of ways to make payments for your move, if you have any questions regarding it please just give us a call and we can discuss the options available to you.
If you choose to move pot plants with your furniture there are certain regulations that must be obeyed.
Also be sensible when preparing plants to be moved, do not water them for a few days prior, be selective, and try to keep them to a bare minimum.
Pot plants in clay pots are notoriously bad at moving on trucks as the weight of the soil tends to break the pots. You may be better off ditching the plants and keeping the pots, cleaned of course.
Check with your destination states department of Primary industries regarding specific plants
Obviously the more notice you give us the better, but as a minimum we would ideally like around about 3 days notice.
Having said that, if you are in need of an urgent and last minute move, we can assist in this kind of service also.
Unfortunately we are unable to transport gas bottles in the trucks.
We suggest Swap and Go, for safety reasons
Yes, we always recommend you wrap your upholstered furniture in plastic covers, as even when they are wrapped in our removal blankets they can often get dirty whilst inside a truck.
Unfortunately it is never a good idea to store items inside drawers during a move, as it runs a high risk of damage occurring to your drawers, and also the possibility of your belongings falling out and getting lost
We always prefer an inventory list because generally when it comes to a cubic meter quote, the customer often either overestimates or overestimates the size of their jobs and then the price your quoted could be incorrect.
To greatly reduce the risk of an incorrect quote, we always request that the customer fills out an inventory list as it is the most accurate way to quote a job.
Unfortunately we are unable to transport both the car and furniture together.
However we can assist with car transport.
Please visit MoveMyCar.com.au you can get a quote to transport your vehicle anywhere in Australia.
Packing and Moving Tips
With all the other things you do its not easy to find the time to get everything done!
Using a checklist of tasks, can help keep you organized and make sure you don't leave out an important moving task.
I suggest that you start the list well in advance a month or more before the move.
Just jot a few things down and then leave the list on the kitchen counter or fridge where everyone can see it.
As you think of new things to add, write them down right away or it might be too late when you think of them again!
As the time for the move grows closer, you may want to transfer the list to a calendar format.
Some of the items like notifying the phone company, will be things you can do in advance so you can assign those a date and t hen each day check the calendar to see what tasks need to be done.
Cross off those that you have accomplished and you can easily see what is left to do.
This method also works well if you are delegating some of the items on the list you can add the name of the person responsible next to the task and this will avoid any last minute "but I though you were going to do that.problems.
When the day of the move comes, you'll probably still have plenty left on your to do list so make sure that its the last thing you pack up on your way out and the first thing you unpack at your new home.
You will probably need to add tasks that are specific to your situation, but some common items on your to do list might include:
- Buy boxes and get packing material this can be done in advance
- Create an inventory of what you will be moving to your new address
- Pack unnecessary items like knick knacks and anything you can do without until after the move
- Contact us and get a quote for your removal.
- Sell, give away anything you no longer want.
- Book your removal
- Check out any insurance you may require.
- Arrange Storage if necessary.
- Arrange for utility shut off / reconnect for phones, lights and gas
- Notify business associates, friends and family of change of address and new phone number
- Put your new address and phone on checks and business cards
- Schedule a final walk through to inspect your new house
- Fix any items that came up in final walk through for your old house
- Schedule move out cleaning so your house is clean for the new owners
- Schedule your pets to go to a friend or kennel on the day of the move
Whats the best way to pack a box when moving interststate
Use heavy-duty packing tape to secure the bottom of each carton
Never just fold the bottoms of cartons; from experience it is not a good feeling lifting a carton just to find its contents have emptied over your feet. (Trust me on this one.)
Small flaps should be folded in on the bottom inside, with the larger flaps folded in on the bottom outside.
Run the packing tape center vertical of the upright carton, approximately five inches from the bottom
From this point keep running the tape along the joining seam of the two folded larger bottom flaps, then up approx 5 inches vertically of the upright carton on the opposite starting side
Once your carton has been set up, cover the base of the inside of the carton with butchers paper scrunched up.( This will create a cushioning effect.)
An alternative is to use linen as a bottom layer. This will protect your valuables much the same way as a shock absorber operates in a motor vehicle.
Plan the items to be packed (i.e.. you wouldn't pack detergents with food items).
Once this is complete, you can then start packing your valuables
A good rule of thumb, every one carton should have two-thirds china, one third padding.
Wrap all china and glassware pieces separately - then stack in carton on their ends or edges.
After each layer of china or glassware place another layer of padding - ensure there is also sufficient padding on the sides of the carton and finally on the top
For ease of carriage, pack a mixture of light and heavy items in large cartons. Pack cartons right to the top or fill right to the top with padding, BUT don't overfill
Fold the top flaps of the carton in the same manner as the bottom flaps and tape up securely
Label each carton with name, room and brief description of the goods, to enable easy placement of the carton at delivery
Ideal for clothes, light items, linen, crockery, glassware etc.
435 x 410 x 600mm
Ideal for books, cd's, breakables, crockery, etc.
410 x 300 x 435mm
Designed for large paintings, pictures, etc.
1040 x 800 x 75mm
Sturdy large carton designed for 'hanging' clothes
600 x 475 x 1100mm
Used for wrapping breakable items, etc
We like to think we have a comprehensive backloading website, however there are quite possibly things we have missed, or simply questions that are specific to you alone.
Its normally best that you have done a quote prior to questions being asked, as until we know a bit more about your move and circumstances we can only offer general advice.
