We have just moved . . . .so I thought you may want some idea of current removal costs.
We were moving from an in Inner city apartment in Footscray to a retirement unit in Dandenong.
A distance of around 35km.
We used a professional removal company who provided a van with 2 men.
We got quotes from 3 companies based on hourly rates.
After some considerations we settled for a company we had used the last time we moved, 4 years ago,
Their base cost was $113/hour.
What We Did
Before removal day we bought/borrowed around 20 removal boxes and packed things like ornaments and crockery.
That cost us around $60.
We also moved around 3 car loads of the more fragile ornaments and our clothes before and after removal day.
$791.00 7.5 hours . . . . The Actual Time from arriving until they left on completion
$56.50 0.5 hours . . . . Travel time from Depot
$15.00 Road Tolls
$70.00 Materials (7 extra boxes, 5 rolls of tape, 2 rolls of wrap to protect 2 couches and fridge)
$932.50 Total to Removal Company.
With our costs you could probably add on approx $150 so …….Total Cost around $1,100.
