Default moving interstate

Looks like a possible new job and a big move for us at the start of next year, looking for advise on the best way to move interstate and the type of costs involved.

Technically we are still in the same state but the move is from far north NSW down to Albury on the Vic border (1300km). As for the amount to move, hopefully only a single garage size or enough for a self drive van.

Any one done a similar move or have experience with the following options?

options-
Self hire truck, one way if possible
Removal company from Goldcoast/NSW
Backloading removal company from Vic

We moved interstate, from the Sunshine Coast (more or less) Qld, to Blue Mountains, NSW.

We had a LOT to move though (two day pack).. and it was a company move... so we used a removal company, full pack/unpack service. It was very expensive, almost as much as we'd paid to move everything over from the UK (can't remember offhand, it was 3 years ago, but with the insurance I don't think there was much change out of $10k) - but we had no problems with the move.

It was a nationwide removal company though, so everything was put into two containers by one team and freight trained down to NSW where another team delivered it.

We moved from Brisbane north to Sydney, we went with a company called you pack.com, will look for the address in the morning if you are interested, I think we paid $4,500, we packed everything ourselves & put it in the container they left for us, for about a week outside the house, we bought all the packing boxes, bubble wrap, blankets from them, once we pack everything they came & collected the container & deliver it to us 2 days later, then we just unpacked everything ourselves, nothing broke.

Thanks for the info. The self pack container sounds perfect not sure if this is the same company but going to try them for a quote. http://www.upack.com.au/

also contacted a `backload` company who have lots of space on return trips from Queensland so might only be a couple of grand

We just did the interstate move and yes it's nearly as much as moving from UK to Australia!! Mind you, we'd doubled our stuff this time.

Try www.interstateremovals.com.au and talk to Stephen or Troy. They find the right company for your load, specialise in back loads etc and part loads if required. I was in rural SA so it was quite hard to find companies prepared to come out to us but the beauty of a broker was that they did all the leg work!

I only just noticed your location was now Chinchilla, how are you finding Qld? I'm working out at Kingaroy at the moment, real Bjelke-Petersen country.
