What is Backloading?

Backloading is a common practice in the removals industry, 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.
