How to Save Money With Backloading Removals Services

One of the primary reasons why people choose backloading removals when moving is cost. You save a lot with backloading removals compared to regular removalist services. It can be attributed to the fact that you are sharing truck space with other customers. However, did you know that you can save even more? If you're on a very tight budget, then this article offers tips to help you pay as little as possible.

Disassemble Furniture -- If you are moving one set of furniture, then you might be tempted to load the pieces as they are. It's mainly the case if the pieces of furniture are small in size and you believe that the furniture does not take up too much space. Be that as it may, you are still paying for space that you can save money on if you disassemble the furniture. By taking the pieces apart and packing them in boxes, you will use less space and consequently pay less. Moreover, you can save even further if you load the different pieces vertically rather than flat on a truck's floor. 

Combine Luggage With Another Customer -- Although you pay for space, it is challenging for a removalist company to charge you based on the exact square footage that your load occupies in a moving truck. However, since customers are billed individually, and according to the size of their luggage, you can combine your luggage with that of another customer. If both of you have few belongings that are small in size, then sending the load as one package allows you to haggle the rate. You can then split the cost between the two of you, consequently saving more money. However, the approach only works if you share the same destination with the client you are teaming up with. It makes loading and unloading easy.

Backload Only Necessary Items -- When backloading, you might be tempted to move a lot of furniture since you pay a fraction of the cost you would have paid by hiring regular removalist services. Effective backloading requires that you occupy as little space as possible, and that means that you only backload items you cannot do without. For instance, it might seem that the difference between a person backloading three pieces of furniture and one moving four is not that big. If you believe so, then you are mistaken. If the customer moving four pieces of furniture can do without two pieces, then they can pay less than half. Therefore, examine the few belongings you want to transport and only the essential pieces.

Coast to Coast: The Big Move

Hello, my name is Emma. I am originally from Brisbane, but last year our family decided to move to a little seaside town on the Western Coast of Australia. I have a husband, two kids and a dog, so organising the move wasn't easy. Thankfully, we found a fantastic moving company who helped us to pack our things and load the truck that would transport out things across the country. They even arranged for our surplus things to be placed in a secure storage unit. I was so pleased with the service and learned a lot about big moves, so I decided to start this blog.
