What to consider for your move

When you first decide to move from Melbourne or Sydney, you’ll need to work out what you need to do before you go. If you need to throw things out, you’ll need to factor hiring a skip bin into your budget. When you move out you will also need to have your house cleaned. This will differ in price depending on the size of your home.

The moving itself can be pricey as well if you have a large home. You’ll need to consider which items you want to move, how many rooms are in your home, and what day of the week you plan on moving. These factors will influence the price of the move, so it is important to think about.

What an average move will cost

For one, two, and three-bedroom homes, the pricing of moving from Melbourne to Sydney can vary. The average cost of moving in Australia can range anywhere from $2,000 to $7,500 for interstate removalists. This price is based on shipping containers, as the more you need, the higher the cost will be. If the company doesn’t include packing in the price, this can cost another $1,000 on top of that.

There are also other things you will need to pay for, such as cleaning your home and rubbish removal. It will cost around $20 to $25 an hour to have our house professionally cleaned. This is important to do if it is a rental or you plan on selling. To remove any rubbish from your property will be anywhere between $80 and $250 based on the size of the skip bin you want.

Different types of add-ons
