How to move Interstate

Best Way to Move Interstate

Here are some suggestions on the best way to move interstate (assuming that you don’t mind spending that little bit extra to reduce the pressure and workload that come with an interstate move):-

Engage a thoroughly reputable furniture removalist company

Ensure your precious household good arrive on time and safely. Equally important this will also give you peace of mind and reduce the stress that an interstate move creates.

Enlist help from family and friends;

You may need somewhere to stay or someone to mind the children and/or your pets for you. Family and friends are also likely to be very helpful when you are deciding what to keep and what to discard. Expect comments such as “You still have this old thing?” They will likely shame you into disposing of much more than you would do on your own. At the end of the day (unless you really regret your decision to throw something out), you will have less that needs packing, unpacking and transporting.

Use the expert to both pack and unpack your goods for you

Yes it will cost more, but you can then rest assured that the right packaging materials are used and that your possessions have the best protection for the long haul.


Have someone else be responsible for cleaning your vacated home. Make sure you choose a reliable and thorough cleaning firm – or in the case of Quick and Easy Removals, we have our own expert cleaning team on staff.


Use a motor vehicle transportation company to move your family car(s) for you. The last thing you are going to want to do is hit the road for a long journey after all the work you have done in planning and coordinating your relocation.


Book your family into a really good hotel for the time that your goods are in transit. This treat will allow you to recuperate and be ready for the next challenge of setting into your new instate home.

Cheap Interstate Removalists

If these suggestions make you cringe at the likely cost – there is a way that you can save money and still follow our stress reduction suggestions. Instead of hiring cheap interstate removalists, you could save money by using our backloading service – you would still be using a reputable and trustworthy removalist but by using this service you can save 30% of your removal cost – allowing you to spend it on other ways to make your interstate relocation as stress free as possible. In order to be able to use this service, you will either need to give us 30 days notice of the date you wish to move or call us and we can provide you with dates when this service is available and you can choose which of these suits you best. Unfortunately we only offer this service to those moving interstate from Brisbane to Sydney or Melbourne to Sydney.
