Don't have much to move?
Find backloads with Muval

Backloading is when you book the available truck space on a truck that’s already booked with a primary load. It often means you may have to be slightly flexible on your pickup and delivery dates & times, but in turn it usually means big cost savings! Another benefit of backloading is that moving trucks are always available. Moving this way can allow you to take advantage of truck space if you need to move on short notice.

Booking backloads is a common practice among interstate removalists, and it essentially involves utilising the excess capacity available in trucks. Removal companies are often willing to give discounted rates for the available space in a truck that is going from point A to point B, or on the return journey if they have been unable to find a customer needing to move in the opposite direction. When you book a backload, you'll need to be slightly flexible in terms of your pickup and delivery dates to fit in with the truck's schedule, but you'll be able to secure a very competetive price.

Muval is the best place to book a backload. Without Muval, customers usually call dozens of removal companies trying to find one that has a truck travelling between their desired pickup and drop off locations near to the dates that they want.
