Budget-Friendly Moving: 3 Reasons To Choose An Interstate Backloading Removalist

by Cheryl Dunn

Moving interstate and worried about the expense you're about to incur? You're not alone. The good news is that it doesn't have to cost you a fortune. Some interstate removalist services will get the job done with the same efficiency at a fraction of the cost – how? The answer lies in backloading. When you hire a backloading removalist, you share truck space with someone else who is moving in the same direction. Here are some reasons to consider hiring an interstate backloading removalist for your next move.

Less Strain on the Pocket

Moving homes is a strain on your finances and in most cases even your sanity. When you book an entire truck, you usually book an exclusive trip. With that, you pay for the entire cost of the truck in both directions – to and from the original destination. With a backloading removalist, you split the cost of moving with a few other people and only pay for the space your belongings occupy in the truck in one direction. Backloading removalists are especially sensible for people who are moving a few things and don't want to pay for the cost of the entire truck. 

No Need For Advance Booking

When you book an entire removalist truck, you may have to book well in advance to get access to an available truck. You probably won't know your moving date till the end, making it very difficult to get an exclusive truck on short notice. Even if you do get a truck, you may end up paying exorbitant last minute prices. Many removalist trucks already travel daily between cities and chances are that there's always additional space to accommodate your possessions. Contrary to what you may think, most removalist trucks rarely travel with full loads. With a backloading service, you are much more likely to find an available truck, even on a day's notice.

Specialist Transit Insurance Solutions

Just because you are paying a lower fee for backloading doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality. Despite the fact that it's shared space, genuine backloading removalists offer goods-in-transit insurance for all items on their trucks. This means that if any damage incurs to your valuables due to fire, collision or overturning, you will not be liable. This is especially useful when you're moving interstate and your inventory is in transit for longer periods. Always ask about goods-in-transit insurance when choosing a backloading removalist. 

Though the idea of sponging off someone else's move sounds odd, it is hard to ignore the many benefits of hiring a backloading removalist for interstate moves – that's why it has gained in popularity for moving homes across Australia.
