Covering the costs of reconnecting services would be nice but the truck is the biggest expense and as a tenant knowing that I was going to get booted out in another two months anyway I'd take the option of having the truck + removalists paid for. I don't know how much that costs so ring around and get a few quotes (we always just use cheap 'no name' removalists rather than your big branded companies who charge a ridiculous amount.)

This happened to my ex's mother. The owner paid all her cost associated with moving; truck, boxes and other packing material. I'm pretty sure they were given some money or didn't have to pay rent for a period of time too?

We've had to do this too and we paid moving costs and the first weeks rent of their new home (and a bottle of wine).

I've just remembered something like this happened to SIL.
Her landlord is paying the difference between the rent she paid him and the rent for an equivalent place she could find in the timeframe involved.
He is paying it up until what would have been the end of her lease (7 odd months).

What would an average local move cost do you think? I've only done massive moves so when I hear all moving expenses I kinda go but then the smallest move we have done is 1500km....

Local moves tend to cost a lot more then interstate/long distance.
I used mini movers, years ago now, to move 5 minutes down the road. It was $400 and something for furniture only as i moved all the boxes in the car.
I move 800kms interstate last year and paid $735.
It's best to go with smaller, no name companies if you can. They tend to be a lot cheaper.

Also consider if they have school-aged children, moving during the Dec/Jan hollidays may be preferable to them especially if they need to consider another area and thus changing schools.
I would suggest talking to them and find out their feelings on ending the tenancy earlier rather than in March.
