View Full Version : how much did it cost
Hi everyone we will be moving to perth at the end of the year i am just wondering how much it cost to move to perth im from the gold coast and what company do you think we should go with Thanks:)
it's expensive! unless you own a truck and have someone to drive it... we are probably going with a company called Ozpack, they will take a 20 foot container from sydney to perth for $3200 including all the insurances and stuff. most removalists cost about $8-9 thousand so it's a whole bunch cheaper if you can pack, load and unload yourself. i don't know if ozpack go from qld to perth but would assume so. when i get a bit more organised i'll pm you their details if you like :) have fun with the move!
When we moved back to Perth from Darwin, it was about $3500 not including our airfares and cars. We looked for little things which made it slightly cheaper (like drop your car off at the depot and pick up at the other end at a depot.
We were really surprised as we had culled a lot of our furniture to move up to Darwin and culled again to move back (mind you we moved as a couple and moved back with a bub). Strongly advise you get at least 3 quotes.
We moved from Adelaide to Perth recently. It was somewhere between $6000-$7000, sorry don't know exact figure my Dp's employer paid for it. Don't think that included cars. It was about one and a half containers worth. The cars also went by train.
This included the removalists packing and partially unpacking. They recommended Allied Pickfords who were always on time, careful and only broke one thing. Don't know how you would cut costs, sorry.
I would have to say it was the least stressful move I have ever done having someone else pack for me. Although unpacking the boxes was like playing lucky dip.
Good luck with the move :)
Our expenses were paid by DF's company we moved from Syd to Perth but from memory the cars (depending on size) cost around $900-1000 each. We were moved by Chess Hanley's who did a good job, I would suggest getting a few quotes first.
Will see if friend can pm you. just got her joined up. They moved to Emerald Qld from Perth last Oct. House etc cost about $3000 thats with packing yourself, using 2nd hand boxes etc NOT inc Car or pets. 2 Adults & 2 kids she rang around all the places. If they go to Emerald/Qld they should come back this way. Also took about 2 - 3 weeks to get here as she didn't fill a whole container she had to wait for other pickups on the way.
Try a company called www.backloads.com. We're using them for our move to Melbourne (from Adel) next week and so far they've been great. other removalists were quoting us over $4000 - they've come in at under $3000. They do an on the spot quote on their website.
thanks girls this info going to help me out heaps one more thing can you apply for a ouse in perth while you are in instate or do you have to wait until you get to perth Thanks once again:)
Renting or buying?
As far as i know you can apply for a house in Perth from over East. Only thing is you won't be able to see if there are any underlying problems:( .
If renting be careful and make sure you go with a real estate agent that is very well known and reputable.
I can pm you with a couple of names to personally avoid if you want?
I found it hard to look at houses to rent on the internet. I was looking at the pictures and then DP who was already in Perth would go and look at the house. They didn't always look as great as the picture.
Also if you don't know Perth well it is hard to get a feel for the general area. We took forever to pick an area cause we had only knew people without children who had lived in Perth. So they didn't know much about what was around for children.
Good luck :)
my sister lives in perth so i can get her to have a look at the houses for me it would just make it easy if i had a house to move into once i get there instead of haveing to stay at her house with all our kids and she had 3 herself it would be a mad house :D
