    Default How much do furniture removalist packers charge??

    Hi we are about to move interstate and I am contemplating renting a fully furnished place and just storing our stuff here in Brisbane as the move will only be for two years max. Can anyone give me a rough idea what packers will charge, the reason I want them is I want my stuff well packed and covered since it may be in a storage unit for quite some time.

    Many thanks

    It depends on heaps of things. Where are you moving to, how much stuff are you taking etc... Most places are happy to give you a no obligation quote.
    Backloading is a cheaper option I'd you're moving between major towns as well.

    We moved from SA to QLD and a full house pack and unpack was around $27000. Including moving the car. We used crown. And I wouldn't use them again, had to put in a insurance claim for $6000 of damage and missing boxes. The SA staff were rude and tried to smoke in my house. 2nd time we moved we used grace brothers and had no problems.

    We've used Allied Pickfords twice now. The first time, we paid an extra $400 for the house to be packed, and the second time they included it in our move free of charge (and that move, though further and more remote, still cost less than the original move)!!!!
