This is a great question, and important if you are considering an interstate move in Australia.
\Whether you’re moving for work, lifestyle reasons or to be closer to family, it’s important to consider the cost of hiring an interstate removalist. Interstate removalists can help take the stress out of your move, but it’s important to know how much they will cost so that you can budget accordingly.
There are a few things that will affect the cost of hiring an interstate removalist, including the distance of the move, the number of items being moved and the time of year. Additionally, if you’re moving from a major capital city such as Brisbane to another capital city, such as Perth, you can expect to pay more than if you’re moving within your home state.
Moving from Brisbane to Perth? Here’s an example of how interstate removalists costs can vary
Interstate removalists costs can also vary depending on whether they are using just road transport or a combination of road and rail transport.
It is a great idea to talk to an experienced and professional team. The Crusader Removals team have been helping people move interstate for over 10 years. Sadly, at times, we have clients who have attempted to hire a cheap removalist company with little experience. When they don’t turn up, we get emergency calls for removals.
Interstate removals can be expensive. Understanding how the removal is quoted will help you compare prices correctly.
How do removalists quote for interstate moves?
When you get in touch with a company that does interstate removals, they will usually consider the following.
The quote should factor in the distance of your move and the number of items you need to move. A reputable removalist will ask you to complete a full inventory. This helps provide an accurate quote. If you underquote, you can end up with additional charges.
Removal companies may also ask additional questions as follows:
Do you need storage services?
Do you have stairs?
Are the special items, like pianos, pool tables or precious artworks?
Will you want insurance to cover your move?

Interstate move costs can be affected by the time of year.
If you’re moving during peak season (usually between December and February), you can expect to pay more. Off-peak season is usually between March and November. Demand is higher during peak season. Removalists are often booked up well in advance.
Other economic issues can also affect the cost of the move. An example of this in 2022 was petrol prices increasing because of the troubles happening with Russia and Ukraine.
Get in touch with the team if you are booking your move for 2022/2023 between December and February. A lot of families move interstate for work reasons at this time of year.
What else should you factor in cost wise for an interstate move?
When you’re budgeting for your interstate move, don’t forget to factor in other costs such as accommodation, food and petrol. By considering all of the costs involved, you can ensure that your move is as stress-free as possible.
