The process of finding somewhere to live can be exciting, but it can also be a cause of stress. And that’s even before you need to think about moving from one house to the next.
But moving house doesn’t necessarily have to be stressful or expensive. In fact, there are a number of ways you can easily reduce the costs of your move without having to do everything yourself, or offering to pay your friends in pizza.
If you’re looking at removalist options and wondering what backload moving is, we can help. In this blog post, we’ll explain what backloading is and how it can save you money when moving. Whether you’re moving from Melbourne, Brisbane or Adelaide to Sydney, or any cities in between, Safe Removalist Australia can provide you with cost-effective interstate backloading services to help make your move easier.
How backloading removals work
If you’re looking to move house, you may have seen the word ‘backloading’ pop up a few times. But what is backloading, and why is it so much cheaper than a regular removalist service?
A backloading removalist service is cheaper than a regular removalist service because it makes use of removalist trucks that are heading back from a previous job. Backloading can also mean that you share truck space with another person’s move.
For example, if you’re moving from Sydney to Melbourne, and the interstate removalist truck has just completed a job from Melbourne to Sydney, they can pick up your items on the return trip. Having a full load on the return journey is far more cost-effective and efficient for the removalist company, rather than the driver making an interstate journey with an empty truck. That’s why backloading is cheaper. Backloading furniture, boxes and other household items can be one of the cheapest ways to move house.
The benefits of backloading removals
Backloading means that a removalist company is able to make the most effective use of their time, space and services for their customers. They can then pass the benefits onto you.
The number one benefit of backloading is that it is much cheaper for the customer than booking in a regular removalist service. Backloading is one of the cheapest options for people who are moving interstate. By making use of a truck that is returning from a completed job, or sharing space with another person’s items, you can take advantage of a cheap backloading option.
Backloading is also more environmentally-friendly, as you’re booking in a truck that is already in your location and heading back to your final destination, rather than hiring a whole new truck. For those conscious of their carbon footprint, backloading is a great option.
Another benefit of backloading and hiring professionals is that you don’t need to worry about moving your items yourself. Moving house can be stressful, whether you have a small one-bedroom apartment or need to move an entire house. And in some cases, if you push yourself too hard trying to move heavy items, you can injure yourself. This is why hiring professionals to get the job done is a much better option than trying to manage everything yourself.
However, backloading means that you may not have the option to book in a specific time. Because you are not booking the service directly for yourself, but relying on someone else’s job being completed on time, you don’t usually get the option to book a specific moving time. The move before yours could be finished ahead of schedule, or it could run late.
That said, larger companies almost always have a number of trucks on the road at any given time. So booking a backloading removalist service with a company like Safe Removalist Australia means there is some flexibility in regard to the time and date.
How much does backloading cost?
Like any other type of removalist service, the cost of backloading will change depending on a few factors. For example, the amount of furniture and boxes you have will dictate the size of the truck you need.

Is backloading the right option for you?
There are many benefits to backloading, especially if you’re moving interstate. Whether you’re moving house or moving offices, backloading can be a cost-effective and eco-friendly option for you. While you’re not usually able to schedule in a specific time for the backloading removalist service, the fact that backloading is so much more economical than a regular move makes this service worthwhile for you and your moving needs.
