What is Backloading?

Backloading 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. When you book a backload with Muval, we do all of the hard work for you, finding you an appropriate match as close as possible to when you want to move.
