    Any removalist company should be able to do that however, intestate removals are very expensive. You would be best to ring some Victorian companies to see if they have an empty truck coming back from qld, that option is quite a lot cheaper.

    It's called back loading, do a search for that and you might have more success finding something :-)

    We used backloads .com for our vic-wa move. It saves a LOT of money but takes longer and there is more risk of damage due to double handling. Often the goods get picked up/dropped off at a warehouse until the truck is available to do the next leg of the trip.

    That said, we're moving back next year and I'll be using them again as despite the risks our experience was good. I've had more damage done moving 2 suburbs away.

    Lol I currently work for a removalist, we don't do back loading so it took me ages to think of what it was called :-)
