Lastly, engaging professional removalists is the ultimate in low-stress and pain-free moving. They handle the loading, safe transport and unloading of your goods.
Professional removalists cost around $150 per hour. You’ll pay between $600-$800 for a 3-bedroom local move in a large capital city, depending on a wide range of factors.
Most professional removalists offer transit insurance to cover you against accidents or damage during the move. Check if this is included, or an additional cost. Some also offer professional packing and cleaning services and temporary storage options for an additional fee.
Using professionals gives you greater certainty around your move, which can mean less ‘add-on’ costs and days off work compared to using budget removalists or going total DIY. Plus you can access transit cover for your goods. So going pro could actually save you money in the long run.
