What is Sydney to Ballarat backloading?

Backloading is when you book the remaining truck space on a truck that’s already booked by someone else. 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 relative to booking a "primary load".

Booking backloads is a common practice among interstate removalists, who are often willing to give cheap or discounted prices 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.

If you have booked the shared truck option, then yes. If you have booked a premium option, then you will not be sharing the truck. 

It is preferred if you or your representative to be present at the pickup and drop off.

We only work with experienced and reputable moving companies and its in their best interests to pack accurately in the trucks for two main reasons:

  1. It maximizes the space available.
  2. A tight well-loaded vehicle ensures less movement and motion on the road/rail. 

When looking at your kitchen, the industry standard is one book carton to each cupboard door. 

The best way to ensure a successful move day is to be prepared. One way to do this is to notify your removalist about any very heavy or awkward-to-move items before move day. It can never hurt to double-check with them that they understand that you have these items, even if you have also submitted an inventory list. These sorts of items include:

  • Grand / Baby grand piano
  • Pizza oven
  • Concrete furniture
  • Pool / snooker tables (particularly slate)
  • Many pot plants / large pot plants

If you have the original TV box, please use it. You can also purchase TV storage/removal boxes from storage centres. If you don’t have a box and can’t source one, the removalist will use heavy-duty blankets to protect the TV.

The earlier you book your move the more confident you can be that the date you wish to move will be available. However, the time in advance that you should book is heavily dependent on the time of year. Between October and March we recommend booking at least 3-4 weeks in advance of when you want to move. From March - September you can leave it a little later, booking 2-3 weeks out.

A cubic metre is 1m x 1m x 1m. A full-sized container size is 38m3. 

Truck sizes vary from 20m3 to 70m3 and sometimes 100m3.
